I received the student discount.

Pros

I love that the price for the software is a flat monthly fee, with no extra added commission. That was a huge selling point for me. I love that this is an independent service and software, and that I was not in a contract.

Cons

From my bidders, I received feedback that the workflow of the website seemed to be somewhat confusing, especially when you click on a picture and have to "return to catalogue" to go on to the next item. Also, when I invoiced the items, the invoice printed that it added "15% buyers premium" but the math worked out to be 20% buyers premium.

Online showcasing of my real estate properties, with nice support staff to help out.

Pros

Been using my SAE site for almost a year now for real estate listings and so far I'm loving it! The support staff is great and personable, and I can see real changes on my site after speaking with them and giving them my suggestions. They worked with me to create and upload 360 degree pictures of listings which we embedded directly into the site to really showcase the properties.

I liked that the platform had everything I needed to get started right away. I use it as my own website for my business now. It's all very intuitive and easy to get the hang of, and the support staff is always very helpful when I do have questions.

I started out with a flat monthly rate with no contract. Most other options I found required some kind of long-term commitment, but with SAE I felt like I wasn't taking a risk. I eventually switched voluntarily to a contract for the discounted rate. The price is extremely fair, and the staff really makes me feel like I am a priority.

During a live auction with several bidders bidding, the auction ended early and declared a winner. I was in shock, could not believe what just happened. I lost out on approx $13,000 and couldn't sleep that night I was so upset. I called the next morning and spoke to both owners, who said they would look into it and get back to me. Three weeks later I called back and cancelled my account because no one got back to me, and I didn't trust the software. There were some glitches a few weeks/days prior to the live auction. Tech support assured me that the glitches I mentioned were fixed and extensive testing was done, and that there would be no issues with my live auction. I wish that were true. I still can't believe what happened that night, and the owners not getting back to me. If one of my clients called me and said that my product failed which costed them some money, I would do everything I could to try and make them happy.

The pros are many but the most important part to me is the great support from the staff. I am not very technically savvy so personal support is important to me. I do not have any cons.
