Bonanza Adds "Rush" Sale

Bonanza recently removed the Bonanza sale feature with a promise that something new was on the way.  The "new" has been released.  It is called the Bonanza "Rush"  Sellers sign up for the event via the My Bonanza > Sell page.  There is a link to designate the percentage the seller is offering for the Rush. 

Bonanza will schedule the Rush and notify everyone when the Rush time will be.  Instead of discounted items all over the site,  items in the bonanza Rush will be located on a single page. Much easier for buyer's to locate and shop.

Alex posted a detailed outline ..Read all about it.
