What is “Bump for New”?

It can be hard to stand out in a marketplace, and sellers are constantly asking us how they can have more control over their visibility to drive more sales. To that end, we've developed a new way to place your Brand New listings at the top of our highest converting pages – the Comparison Shopping Page.

Reverb Bump pushes your listings to the top row on the Reverb homepage, category pages, and search results. In addition, Brand New condition listings get even more exposure through premium visibility on Comparison Shopping Pages.

Because of the additional opportunities for premium visibility, bumping Brand New condition listings has been updated to a second-bid auction system. You enter the maximum bid you’re willing to pay as a percentage of the listing price (on top of our standard 3.5% selling fee), and this bid competes with bids from other sellers for premium positioning.

Here’s an example:

  1. You bid 2.0% of your listing price.
  2. Someone clicks on your listing from a bump slot and then purchases it for $100 within the 7-day attribution window.
  3. You’re charged $2 (2% of the $100 listing price) plus the usual selling fees.

Top placement will be determined based on a combination of factors, including the quality of the seller, lowest price and bid amount. We are also bringing some randomness to the selection process to help spread sales around to multiple shops who bid on the same product.
