We just sent this email to all users:

When we launched LastDodo on July 2, 2020, as a restart of the Catawiki collectors platform, we indicated, in a mailing to all users and on our forum , that we were going to think about a sustainable revenue model. This is important for the continuity of the platform. Until now we have always paid for the programmers, designers and web hosting ourselves with only a small income from clicks to the Catawiki auctions. And this is quite a big expense.

Now, after two and a half years, we are going to give substance to this. We will do this by offering a premium subscription for collectors (with extra features) and subscriptions for the larger shops.

It is important that keeping track of your collection and search list remains free, regardless of its size. From December 1, some existing features for collectors will be included in a premium subscription. This also includes the possibility of having a shop of a reasonable size. Active administrators receive this premium subscription for free as a thank you for their work. Users who make an exceptionally large contribution to the catalog also receive such a subscription on the recommendation of the catalog manager and the catalog administrators.

Specific subscriptions will be available for the larger shops from 1 December.

At the beginning of next week we will share the exact content of the subscriptions and the prices with you. If desired, these can also be closed immediately.

Incidentally, it is not the idea to save money on this step. For the time being, we are happy if we can cover the costs somewhat. If there is any money left over, we will immediately reinvest it in the LastDodo platform and its promotion.

I wonder if small sellers should also take out a paid subscription. In my case I am a collector who occasionally sells. Bought more on lastdodo than sold. Previously, there was a percentage that you paid on sale. Something like 5%. You can live with that

There remains a possibility for a small free shop. More on that early next week.

I think it's a good choice, without income LastDodo cannot survive in the long run. And we want LastDodo to continue to exist, don't we?. I am willing to give my contribution for this.

paulcoret ,

Correct. This was abolished in March 2013, so almost 10 years ago :-)
One of the reasons was that there was a kind of "arms race" with sellers who wanted to avoid this commission and sold outside their shop or wrongly canceled orders, etc. We don't feel like doing that anymore.

Or if that's faster, you're now allowed to do it for me.

Nothing changes for you and for many other users anyway, Iskander?.

Iskander ,
That would be a shame after all this time.
Isn't your reaction a bit impulsive? Keeping track of your collection and search list will remain free for an unlimited period of time anyway.
Anyway, you can delete your account on the Settings page (menu under your avatar) and then in the Account submenu.

I understand that. But LastDoDo doesn't offer any added value for me at the moment. I think I can count on one hand the number of times I have visited the site.
Other hobbies are now a bigger part of my life, leaving no time for LastDoDo. That's not bad at all. Sometimes things turn out that way.
I wish everyone at LastDoDo all the best, but it's not my place anymore.

I can sympathize with that percentage. But a subscription per year can cost a lot. I myself think when people have to pay their percentage to this forum. That this brings more to this forum. And easier. Than with certain subscriptions that involve a lot of administration. Plus enforcement

The current term is "goat path". That sounds innocent, but is actually antisocial.

We actually think that it is much easier for us to work with a subscription than to charge a percentage again fhst5769

And you can see it a bit like being on a trade show. You pay in advance for your place and you have to wait and see whether you sell a lot, but you also have a large part in your own hands based on what exactly you bring and what your prices are.

Ah. That could be Iskander
I'm going to arrange for us to do the deletion for you.
Edit: the deletion is already done.
It's a pity but it's no different. Best wishes!

As a market vendor manager, you first get your money. I understand that. Then everyone must pay and not ignore the aforementioned exceptions. Then you get strange situations.

fhst5769 , Besides people who contribute a lot to the catalog, such as active admins, the only exceptions will be very small shops. For example, we have many shops that only sell teabags or one-cent stamps. Making them pay for their place didn't seem reasonable to us.

Same rule for you too fhst5769 , you don't need to subscribe. In this size of your shop you pay nothing.
There remains a possibility for a small free shop. More on that early next week.

I occasionally buy, as far as I can tell not yet via lastdodo, on catawiki. Although I appreciate the efforts, it is not interesting for me to take out a payment subscription.
