Reminders of how the new Deal of the Day program works:

  • To make purchases, you must be registered. This is its own registration system, separate from the main registration for The Batavian.
  • Once registered you must be logged in.
  • You click on the orange button, if the item is not sold out, and it takes you to a PayPal button. This allows you to pay either with your PayPal account or with a credit card/debit card. The login for PayPal is completely separate from our accounts.
  • The first person to successfully complete the PayPal transaction wins the gift certificate.
  • You are eligible to buy the same item only once in a four-month period. We use the registration system to track this for you so you don't have to.

A lot of house for the money and priced below assessment. These owners are serious and priced it to sell! Must see inside to appreciate. Updated roof, siding and windows. Extra family room, gas stove in living room. Galley style kitchen. Laminate floors plus some with carpeting. Nice back yard, recently landscaped front yard with new porch-just a great Village home! Call Lynn Bezon at Reliant Real Estate today at 585-344-4663 or click here to view the full listing.

This is our third day of running out new Deal of the Day program.

Many people have already registered, which will make it easier to jump right in and buy today's deals. If you haven't registered (see the link below), you should, even if you aren't planning to purchase today. It will help you make a quicker purchase in the future.  Some deals do go fast.  The registration system makes it easier for you to know which items you are eligible to purchase within the four-month time frame.

You will still need to log into your PayPal account, or pay with a credit card through PayPal, to complete your purchase (we've always used PayPal for Deal of the Day, so if you think you haven't used it before to make a Deal of the Day purchase, you have).

Finally, this isn't the same registration used on The Batavian for comments and such.

August 6, 2016 - 6:30pm

No purchase necessary. For a coupon code for a free ad, email [email protected] posted in jobs available, housing and autos are $5 each for 14 days. All others are free.

Yesterday, we introduced a whole new system for handling the Deal of the Day. We've automated much of the work of managing deal of the day to make it both easier on us and easier on you.

For us, it will mean a lot less work.

For you, you will no longer be asked to remember if you're eligible to buy a deal. In the past, we had a requirement that you couldn't buy the same deal within a six-month window (that's now four months), but it was kind of up to you to remember your last purchase date. With this new system, the database will remember that information for you. 

To make this work, however, you will need to register and log into your account to make a purchase. From that point on, everything with PayPal works just like it did before.

This new system will allow us to post deal of the day more frequently and at more random times, giving more people a chance to enjoy the benefits of these bargains.

For more on this project and why we did it, click here.

This is a new application. if you have problems, email details [email protected]

Also, on the four-month rule, everybody starts fresh today. Prior purchases won't be tracked.

TWO NOTES: Two issues that came up yesterday.

The registration system for Deal of the Day is not connected to the registration system for The Batavian (for posting comments, for example). You need to register specifically with Deal of the Day to be able to buy deals (good idea, as many people did, to register in advance, so you're logged in and ready to go when a deal pops up that you want to buy before anybody else does).

When you are registering, it's just for our system. You will still need to log into your PayPal account to complete the purchase.

posted by Howard B. Owens in thebatavian, Batavia's List, sponsored posts, advertisement.

We've found many people like using Batavia's List since we launched it more than a year ago, especially for housing and jobs, but I'm among those who found the pricing scheme overly complicated.

So we've simplified it.

If you're placing an ad in jobs offered, housing or autos, there is a single, flat-fee of $5 for 14 days. No more tiered pricing or pricing for different categories. $5, one time, 14 days, that's it.

Garage sale posting remain free. And we've FIXED the software that controls it. So if you've tried posting a yard or garage sale and didn't see it appear, it will now appear on the map properly.

Private party ads for items for sale or wanted were free before and they are free now.

We're doing away with the business directory on the site -- for now, because I've got something else coming (speaking of that, look in the next few days for a whole new setup for Deal of the Day).

Finally: A CONTEST: Place a listing, any listing, on Batavia's List, between now and Aug. 31 and become eligible to win in a drawing a $100 gift card for Alex's Restaurant. No purchase necessary. If you need to post in one of the $5 categories, e-mail [email protected] and I'll send you back a coupon code for a free post.
