Choose a Listing
You can feature your listing from your My Account page from either the My Listings section or the Marketing Center.
  • From the My Listings section, click Bid Now or the edit link ( ) next to your listing (Bid Now indicates you don’t have an active bid)
  • From the My Listings section, click the Feature My Listings button
  • From the Marketing Center, click the Feature My Listings link
By clicking the "Feature My Listings" link, you'll be able to view historical performance for any of your listings you've previously featured.
Choose the listing for which you want to place or edit a bid by clicking the circle next to it on the left.
Click "Next."
Keep in mind:
  • You can feature as many listings as you want and bid different amounts, but you must create unique bids for each.
  • You can only feature a listing in the category in which it belongs.
  • If you bid on more than one listing in a category, only the top listing in the sort will be displayed. This is done to optimize the customer experience and reduce your potential click charges.
  • Quality matters - only accepted listings that are new or have a star average of 3.5 or higher and have a photo can be featured.
Placing Bid
You will see your Listing Category and the listing's current Featured Listing Rank. You will be asked to enter the maximum bid you are willing to pay for each charged click from a potential customer and to select when you want your bid to expire. You can select to keep your bid active until you cancel it, or to set a specific budget that you do not wish to exceed.
To help you determine what you wish to bid, you can review the Historical Bid chart and the Listing Quality Score for the listing that you are currently bidding for.
Remember, as the availability and bids of your competitors changes throughout the day, your Featured Listing Rank, and therefore your exact position, will also change. Rather than focus on your position at any specific time, we recommend that you choose a Max Bid that will maximize your personal return on investment (ROI). You can calculate your Return on Investment (ROI) by using the data available in Featured Listing Results.
Keep in mind:
  • No matter what you bid, you'll only be charged one penny ($0.01) more than is required to rank you higher than the listing below you.
  • The minimum bid amount is $0.20 and the maximum bid amount is $200.00.
  • When using the Budget Feature, the budget must be at least 3 times the amount of your Maximum Bid.
  • It may take up to 30 seconds for your position to update after confirming your bid as the database refreshes.
  • Your listing must be available to take calls in order to appear in the Featured Listing sort.
