Welcome to TheDeadSkunk.com Your auction website.
TheDeadSkunk.com is a new fast growing International Online Marketplace, enabling trade on a local, national and international basis. With a diverse and passionate community of individuals and small businesses, thedeadskunk offers an online platform where millions of items are traded each day.
Our aim is to produce a fluid, dynamic, ever evolving and fair to all online auction website. We hope with your participation and commitment to maintain an auction website where you're happy to buy, sell, swap or simply place a wanted ad. With just one mouse click you can upload as many as six images or pictures directly to your auction listing at no cost. There are no standard listing fees. Yes, you can list any item with as many as 6 pictures at no cost. If your item fails to sell on your first listing, you can list the same item and images for free a further 3 times. Therefore if lister chose the 58 days option to start with, then lister could list their item for another 174 days which is almost 6 months worth of listing!
We have allowed sellers to voluntary sign in for I.D. Verification. This is a one time £1.00 payment through Paypal. So those wishing to purchase items can look for the I.D.Verified Logo on sellers page. This is a voluntary option which we think many will use for peace of mind and client confidence.Note just added!
We have a brilliant seller mod which we think you’ll all appreciate.
The mod can be seen on our fees page below: AUCTION START ON FIRST BID:
If seller lists an item for, let’s say, 10 day duration/ listing period, then that 10 day listing countdown does not start until a bid is placed on the item listed.
This is a fee free mod.
As an example: if you the seller were to place any item for sale on the 1st of a given month, and zero bids were placed until 1st , 2nd, or 3rd of the following month, then listing countdown would only start as and when first bid was placed, which could be a full month or more later!
Below are just a few of the changes that we've implemented
Free 6 picture or image uploads per listing.
Voluntary Seller I.D. Verification
Things to do before you die category.
Disability and Mobility Category.
Free dual category listing
You Tube Video upload.
Swap an item
When adding item description, click bottom left, the square box in the tool bar for full screen, and tool rich text editing. Then click same square box in the tool bar to go back to small text editor to continue the listing process.
We strongly believe in networking with those who already have an established online business and will allow those of you that purchase a featured store to set links directly back to your own business website.
Ultimately the key to our business success depends upon two things; driving traffic towards this site, and your enthusiastic participation.
Our Store Fee and End of Auction Fee structures are based on a sliding scale.
We believe this sliding scale fee structure will give the seller a much needed crutch in order to further progress and build a successful business.
We will re-invest as much of the funds as needed into driving traffic towards this site.
We hope you like what you see and understand that we need your help in order to achieve all our goals.

TheDeadSkunk is first and foremost run as a profit making business. We also see ourselves as social entrepreneurs. We recognize the need for change and believe we have created an auction site, if utilized, organized and managed properly by all, can impact greatly, both socially and financially upon all.
Our goal is to provide our members with a great online venue in which to build their businesses. We will continue to provide useful tools to help them achieve their personal business goals. We aim to hear our members’ thoughts, ideas, suggestions and to implement them to the best of our ability.
