QXL is pronounced (officially) dead

Ebay must be rubbing their hands with glee as QXL admits defeat.......


"The QXL UK auction site is closing on 30 May, 2008.

Dear *****,
We would like to inform you that we have decided to withdraw from the UK market and close the QXL.co.uk site.

Trading will cease on QXL.co.uk from 12 noon on Friday, 30 May 2008 and all accounts will be closed.

We request that those members who have an outstanding debit balance on their account to settle these as soon as possible. Any credit balances that remain in your account may be reclaimed by providing the customer service team the credit balance details on [email protected], subject to any outstanding fees which are due as at 30 May 2008 or on the closing of your account, which you will remain liable for. Please note QXL voucher credits have no monetary value so will not be refunded.

Please keep the following dates in mind when using QXL during May:
Last day to list an item: 9 May, 2008
Listings will not auto re-submit after 9 May, 2008.
Last day to Bid/Buy: 19 May, 2008
Last day to access remaining site tools such as My Account: 30 May, 2008
Selling, Bidding and Buying safely during the remaining days of QXL.co.uk

While you continue to use the QXL UK auction service, please follow these safety guidelines:
Know who you're dealing with - Deals should only go forward if the both the buyer and the seller are comfortable with the terms of the sale.
Use the help option - if anything seems unclear. It is very important that you know what you are bidding on and the terms of sale before you bid.
Keep Records - of all correspondence
Carefully Evaluate - your payment options
Use common sense - If the item description or terms of sale seem too good to be true, they probably are.

We would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone who joined the QXL auction community during the previous 10 years and thank you for your custom and loyalty.

If you have any questions or need advice please email on [email protected]

Kind Regards
The QXL Team. "

Not surprised but a bit of a shame as ebay could do with competition, admittedly I haven't used qxl in years as it's a vicious circle - the less people use it, the less items are listed which in turn means even less people use it.

I do think they've missed a chance here though as if they'd pushed hard with many people currently objecting to the ebay changes I think they could relaunched themselves.

Given that no-one cared enough about QXL for them to survive, then by bumping the thread anyone here with any interest in them would read MY opening post & get probably what would be the only 'valuable' info on a thread like this anyway......
