    Hi, I'm Debi the proud owner of the Selling Lounge. We are a friendly forum where sellers help sellers to help our/your online E-Commerce Business grow by having a place of resources and support along with help in promoting ourselves and each other.

    I have been selling on line since 2003 in which I started out with eBay where I was doing very well as a Power Seller until all the fee hikes and changes. I then opened up my first Website almost 2 years ago and have been a member of a few very nice informative E-Commerce Forums and have learned so much about this new world of online selling that I wanted to have all my information in one place to help me succeed and by doing that, helping others at the same time.

    I want to welcome each and everyone of you and please make yourself at home in the forum and add your links to the various places we have for you to help get you and your products out there and noticed. We have a Blog which I would love for each of you to take the time and send me your site description with a banner and the url to your site so that I can post it on The Selling Lounge Blog.

    I would love to take a moment and thank Suzanne for all her help in getting The Selling Lounge going, I could not have done it without her. Suzanne is the owner of and

    I would also love to Thank our Forum Moderators for all their time and help as well! We have EagleScoutMom2 and out-of-the-attic-2u as our site wide Moderators and vinewood is our Moderator for our Introduction Corner and our Chat Central.

    Featured Advertising Spot


    If you haven't heard about Explorz, we invite you stop by and check us out. The Explorz Shopping Portal service was created
    as a one-stop search portal for buyers and a central place for sellers to promote their products. The service allows sellers
    to have more control and flexibility over the venue they use to sell online. Explorz’s goal is to help sellers invest in
    themselves, one seller at a time. Explorz’s revenue is generated through site advertising, which means that there are no costs
    to sellers for displaying their products on the site. In addition, there are no featured listings, so every seller’s listing
    has an equal chance of catching the eye of a potential customer. You can also submit coupons to promote any specials/discounts
    you are offering. Submitting your products to the Explorz Shopping Portal is FREE, fast and simple.

    Featured Auction Site


    My name is Crystal or Crys as my friends call me. I have been selling online since 2000, starting on eBay under ID bmomof3... which still exists but is rarely used... and then I discovered Bidville and

    I started out mainly as a hobby and something to do, some way to get rid of my children's excess clothing they outgrew and so forth. Over the years, my Seller ID changed from bmomof3 to bmomof4 and finally I adopted CraftsDucksNMore2 since that is the majority of items I sell (crafts, rubber ducks, etc.)

    I grew to love online auctions so much that when the chance came up to buy out and take over ONA, I jumped at it, bringing my husband Mike (djind) on board with me.
    Mike and I intend for OvernightAuctions to get back on track, at least, if not better than, the way it used to be when it was in its prime. We are growing at a rapid rate and I could not be happier! We plan to take this site Worldwide and give everyone a chance to join, buy, chat, and lots of other things for free!

    Keep in mind, please, we have two sites, both are linked to the same business name of Overnight Auctions. One is at, which is less than two months old, and in the PhPProbid format that many prefer, and the other is at, which is a highly upgraded RScript format.
    *Thru October 5th, we are having a BOGO registration, if you join on one site and pay the $3 Verification Fee on there, you may join the other site for FREE! You also receive your $3 back in Site Credits on the site you registered on!*

    I want to thank Bays for the chance to be Featured in SellingLounge's first Newsletter. It is truly an honor!
