We are announcing added features and services for buyers and sellers of Linux or BSD computers.
We have recently overhauled our categories in order to support many more types of open source operating systems. Including many of the popular Linux and BSD distributions.
Google Checkout support has also been added as a direct payment option. This will give users the ability to collect payment through Google Checkout once the PC has been sold. There are currently 8 different direct payment options available including Paypal, Google Checkout, 2Checkout, Worldpay, NoChex, iKobo, protx, and Authorize.net
Additionally a new Twitter feature has been implemented which will tweet the Buntfu Twitter page when any PC is listed on Buntfu. Also if you configure your Twitter settings it will tweet your Twitter page whenever you list your PCs.
Enhanced SSL 256bit encryption has been upgraded on login and members areas. To provide a more secure environment while using the site.
Category listings are now more user friendly with drill down tabs and menus with a familiar ebay like feel.
The site has been slightly redesigned with the addition of AdBard.net network to support the open source software community. Plus Buntfu social networking buttons added for community interaction and a security badge to reflect SSL encryption. Tag clouds have also been added throughout the site for easy category hopping.
You can also import your feedback score from Ebay, Yahoo Auctions, OverStock, Amazon, Ebid and more so you don't have to rebuild your reputation from scratch. Within the site are manual promotional tools to advertise your personal RSS feed of your listing to RSS services you pick with just a click.
Buntfu continues to be completely free. All computers listed are automatically syndicated through RSS feeds and shopping / social networking site across the Internet to help sell your computer.
Our recent efforts have favored us in search engine rankings considerably. Which in turn has increased website traffic dramatically. These developments have been very encouraging and promotes what we have said in the past. Building a community based PC vendor is a long road but one worth traveling.
Buntfu currently has no plans of implementing a “No OS” section to the category list. The idea and purpose behind the site is not to sell computers but to sell computers utilizing open source software.
