Quest for Bids was founded out of the site Five Flags Flea Market, which was to create a panhandle wide bridge between flea market merchants and shoppers who may never meet at a market. We have created a site with equal parts eBay, and Flea Market, highlighting the best of each selling arena.
As time went on, the interest locally was low, and I decided to change the theme to help some friends from another site justrightbids.com to migrate to an existing venue.
Shoppers have many features at their disposal, including a powerful detailed search, browsing through each store, contacting the seller before and after the sale through our own messaging system, and payments through the web's best services such as Paypal and Amazon payments.
While most merchants will offer "Buy Me Now" prices, questforbids.com gives the option of running a live auction, making and accepting offers, and a great swap feature!
We offer powerful Vendor features, such as store policies, about the seller, Specials, and an eBay-like star and comment feedback system.
And last, but not least, there are zero fees to sell!
We also offer an open forum for all members, and non-members to enjoy and participate in, as well as more new features in the works.
Here's what is offered to sellers at Quest for Bids:
A fully hosted store with over 30 store layout themes to choose from.
Free basic store logo design
Full payment integration with Paypal, and the ability to accept payments through Dwolla, Square, Google Wallet, Serve, Facebook, Check/Money order, and Bitcoin off site.

Great SEO tools like item META tags and store META tags

And for how much? FREE! That's right, not one red cent is needed to enjoy all these features. All you are required to do is setup and start adding your items for sale!
