Is Pisobid Legit or Scam?

 A Pisobid Review

Have you ever heard of Pisobid? Do you really believe that you can buy an iPad2, a Nikon or Cannon DSLR at 99% off?

penny auction site dedicated to Filipino’s. This site has become a hit since it was officially launched.But many are asking if this site is a legit business or is this site is just a hoax.

pisobid

How do pisobid work?

Let’s take a look on how does Pisobid works according to their website:

How PisoBid Works

At First, your reaction will definitely be, “Common! That was obviously a scam.” So let me give you a broader look of the site, and join me while I assess if this bidding site is legit or not.

Pisobid is like an ordinary auction, but you should buy a bidpack to get involve in bidding. When you register to the site, you’ll get 5 free bids which you can use on bidding. Bidpacks are also sold for different prices depending on the pack size.Prices range from P200 to P10,000.

Upon searching the site content and reading all its rules and procedures, I can say that the site can be considered as legit business. How do I know?

1. It uses Gcash and Paypal. This money transfer services require legit information in order to use their services. I am a Gcash user and I trust its system. Western Union also sells their bidpacks.

2.The site has a registered TIN number.

3. Bidding History:

Pisobid History

Each bid made is listed on the bidding history, including the bidder, time and the current value of the item.

4. Winners are interviewed and their videos are feartured in Pisobid’s youtube channel.

5. I interviewed someone who already won in Pisobid and said that the site is a legit bidding site and winners truly receive what they won..

*Some think that the site uses bot bidders but so far, winners say that they all got their prizes.

So if you also think that the site is not a scam and safe, feel free to bid. Just keep in mind that this type of auction requires not only money but also patience and timing to beat your fellow bidders. And be cautious in bidding.

Note: I am not, in any way connected to Pisobid.com. This review is based on the best assessment that I can provide to provide useful information to those who want try the said website.

 

Edit: There is an issue about Pisobid. Some of their frequent winners were said to be banned. I am posting their comments here and if you were interested, have some time to read. This comments may help you decide if the side deserves your patronage.

”Hi Paul,

Finally a blog that is objectively looking at auction sites in regards to their legitimacy and not just malicious rumor mongering. I would just like to add my 2 cents worth to the discussion.

I am papa888. I am a bidder who has been bidding since Winila the 1st local auction site was introduced in the Philippines. I consider myself a veteran. Hehehe…. (Which doesn’t necessarily mean I win every time. I actually lose more often now than I did before due to the great influx of players in the game.) I admit it’s addicting and like you I have studied objectively the different sites so as to determine for myself the legitimacy of their operations in order for me to bid.

Pisobid is legit. That much I can say. As a former player, I have indeed received the prizes that I had bought from their site. I don’t question their legitimacy and actually like their site. However, like Fort above, I was also banned by Pisobid without any explanation or reason being given. Just a general statement that “You know what you did, now is the time to come clean!” (Huh????) Subsequent follow-up emails asking for explanations have all remained unanswered. I am extremely disappointed at the “high-handed” manner in which they conducted the BAN. Their original TOS stated that they would give you specific reasons prior to any BAN being imposed but they did not follow this and subsequently changed this to “without prior warning”. At the time of my being banned, I had over 3500 bids in my account and awaiting delivery of 2 prizes that I had fully paid for including the delivery charges. These were withheld without any clear or valid explanation. I leave to your readers the decision whether Pisobid deserves their patronage.

Accusation without any proof.. banned without reason.. ganyan ang nangyari sakin at sa iba pang mga malalakas n players ng pisobid n nbanned…. mas matatangap ko pa mabanned ako kung me ginawa talaga ako violation kaso ang masama wala… ang masaklap pa dun dinelete ang account namin sa database wala tuloy kami panlaban sa kanila using Legal Action kasi sa Batas po natin ..

Chie Pisobid Admin answered the issue on a comment he left on this post. Here’s what he said.

Well, I must say that I enjoyed reading your blog post and all of the comments ;) It’s nice to see that our website generates so much interest and we can only hope it’ll stay like that for a long time. We enjoy running auctions, we enjoy developing technology that’s behind it, we enjoy interacting with community… so for every single one of us in the team, Pisobid has been one huge, trilling ride that just keeps on giving.

And that’s also what we want for our customers. I see that some of the commentators call us “high-handed”, “tough” and “non-flexible”. Sure, we are like that. And we don’t see why that would be an issue – we have reputation and customers to protect and for sure we won’t cuddle anyone with warnings every minute or so. When you register, we are very clear on what is allowed and what is not allowed, and it’s up to every single user to decide whether he wants to be protected or prosecuted by the rules.

Would we like that situation is different? Sure – we would LOVE if all of our customers would play fair. When we first launched the site we actually didn’t have any built in control for fraud. How that worked for us? Pretty awesome – some of the fraudsters registered as much as 100 accounts. When we cornered some of them and asked to explain how they are not at least bored to create so many accounts for 5 bids and switch between accounts every now and then, you know what they said?

I haven’t created any extra accounts.

So since then we have embarked on a mission to expand on security of our system. We knew that small number of people will be against it, but we also knew that majority would welcome fair and safe bidding environment. Most don’t know, but our development team is actually based in United States (offices in San Francisco and Saint Louis) and is pretty well connected. We have partnerships with Yahoo, Facebook, Google and many others, that allow us to analyze some of their tracking data (I am pretty sure that you guys know how Facebook collects your browsing history on every web page that has Like Button) and thus we can really protect fair bidders on our website from those who are not. So, we are confident that we will always be the only choice for 95% of customers since we can offer what none other Philippines bidding site can when it comes to quality of bidding environment.

Pisobid Update: What Happened to Pisobid?

So what happened to Pisobid.com? Apparently, the peso auction sited has closed. It’s website is now redirected to Facebook.

I have emailed the Chief Admin of the website who used to give free bid points for my readers but he would not reply. Maybe the website is not coming back. I will post any reply from the Admin of Pisobid the moment that they reply.

    I’m also one of those people who are afraid in buying/bidding online. I always fear of being a victim of scam or fraud that is why I refrain form buying any products online.

    By the way, thanks for dropping by in my blog. If you wan to have an exchange link with me, I’m very much open with it. I also have six more blogs.

    Just send me an e-mail. Thanks.

  2. Will says:

    Hmmm. First time I’ve heard about this. Might check this out. :)

  3. Hideki says:

    may nag invite na sakin jan, try ko daw, e medyo duda kasi ako. haha. anu ba yung item na nakuha sa 89.93? :D para naman kasing mahrap din makakuha.hehe

    • pauldoh says:

      Mejo malaki laking sugal din kasi to kung gusto mong manalo no? di mo din pwedeng asahan yung free bidpack. ikaw po malay mo swerte ka sa 5 na free bids,..

  4. jaypee12 says:

    di nman po actually 1 peso per bid.. ang equal po ng 10 bid packs is 300.. bale un 10pesos mo s pisobid.com eh nagkakahalaga n ng 300.. tama ba?? correct me if im wrong.. ung bid na 89.83 ndi xa exact 84 pesos.. mas mahal pa.. then ung shipping fee babayaran mo pa.. ndi aq against dito.. share lng po heheh thnks

    • pauldoh says:

      Yung price per bid, depende sa bid pack na bibilhin mo, and take note, its not refundable :)
      Yun item babayaran mo sya sa last bidding price + shipping fee.

  5. Miguel says:

    Hi! Bakit parating Pisobid ang tinitira? Ang daming knock off Piso auction site na naglipana ah. Dahil ba umaarangkada na ang Pisobid kaya sinisiraan? Question lang po sa “blogger” what can you say about other Piso Auction site like Bidangbidder.com, Bilibid.com and Pinoybidder.com? Ginaya lang ng mga ito ang format ng Pisobid. Why don’t you try writing about them too? Diba? Para naman fair if gusto mo talagang mabigyan ng information ang kapwa pilipino mo. :)

    • pauldoh says:

      Hi. Hindi ko po sinisiraan ang pisobid. Anywaay about the sites na binanggit mo, check ko po sila, actually I don’t know those sites. I you really read the content of my post, you’ll see kung paninira ba or plain review ko lang po ang post ko. Thanks!

  6. Angelo says:

    At last a new Pisobid review that answers every haters question. Salamat naman at meron nakapag isip na magsulat about Pisobid. Anyways, 6 big reasons is enough to prove that Pisobid is not a scam. If anyone wants to compete with Pisobid, try it the cleaner way. Walang bastusan and false accusations sana. :) Healthy Competition ika nga nila.

    • pauldoh says:

      Thanks. Yun lang naman po yung nakita ko abiut pisobid, wala din akong kung anong againts sa ibang sites. Thanks!

  7. Jax says:

    So logical reasons you’ve cited here especially about the Tax Identification Number. Been researching a while before I join the bidding on PisoBid, but a little bit hesitant.. I have also read that they do have a mayor’s permit so they must a legit site. As you’ve noted they are also very transparent about the winners and the bidding process/transactions. Thanks for a very informational blog.

  8. Jaja says:

    Si Sir Jehzlau yung nanalo nung giftcards nung isang isang isang buwang. :D Sana marami pang lumabas na ganito for Philippines talaga. Ang hirap manalo eh. ^__^

    • pauldoh says:

      OO nga no? Mahirap kung wala kang masyadong budget para bumili ng bid pack no?

      • Jaja says:

        Yep naman. Sinabi mo pa. :D Hindi ako masyado ng paparticipate kasi nakakaubos ng oras at ng money. Medyo mataas yung prices ng bidpacks so malaki ang tubo nila. :D Just hoping hindi mawawala ang trust ng users from the company’s ongoing support. :D Wow, parami rin ng parami ang mga items! :)

      • pauldoh says:

        Yun nga po. at sobrang maappeal ng mga items at ang bilis mahook ng mga tao sa site.

    • Jeric says:

      Kelan nanalo si Jehzlau, di ko makita :-( Anyway, mukhang madami na nga sila, nakita ko meron ding Panalo.ph, Bilibid.com! Yung nabanggit ng iba na bidangbidder.com tsaka pinoybidder.com, mukhang nagsara na, baka nabankrupt..

  9. rod says:

    pisobid is true talagang may nananalo pero negosyo yan hindi nila patatamain ang bidder unless tubo na sila. that’s why they removed the timer sa bidding history para hindi halata. sabi 10s ang timer pero 13s deretso pa din.

  10. Gerard Prince Catalig says:

    very useful insights! will be checking this site for sure! :)

  11. japer says:

    check ko nga ung TIN number, if they have a TIN, siguro meron din silang mayors permit, or any documents to run a business, just making sure it’s legit, coz i’m interested, hehe..:)

  12. AmayBisaya says:

    Sa tingin ko naman legit to. Wala naman pong nagrereklamo na mga winners. Naipapadala po lahat, sa katunayan po nabasa ko po itong blog na may mga testimony ng mga winners and I find it very convincing naman Check nyo po for yourself http://pisobidwinners.blogspot.com/. Masubukan nga.

  13. pisobidder says:

    Well, I think Pisobid is legit naman though they don’t issue OFFICIAL RECEIPTS; They are not yet registered at Department of Trade & Industry (DTI) but they have their reservation already.

    Minsan akala mo nanalo ka, pero you actually purchased those items, we may say in a discounted price lang. Yes, part ang luck pero minsan mas malaki pa rin ang lose kesa sa gain. Do you think magpapa-auction sila nang high-end gadgets kng nde malaki income nila? Syempre nde.. Tapos each item pa may shipping and handling fee pero they will shipped the items in a very cheap packaging (mas maganda pa LBC) all at the same time (kng marami kang napanalunan). Balutin ba daw sa dyaryo or manila paper ung items? Tinitipid ang mga consumers pero bayad naman. Tsk..

    Good luck sa mga mag-bibid dyn! Enjoy!

    • pauldoh says:

      Ah, maicheck nga din tong detalye na to para maiinclude ko sa review ko. Salamat po!

      About da winnings po Sir, ang peeny auction po kasi hindi dapat pinanggigigilan para di ka mapasubo. Parang pag sugal, kaylangan alam mo kung swerte ka or hindi. :)

  14. Zodiac says:

    Hi! Legit po ito, I am one of the winners lol. I already won 2 GC’s and a digicam. Nakuha ko naman po lahat within a week after ko po nag pay. :) Wala pong daya dito, sa katunayan ang dami nilang ibinan kasi may mga violations sa TOS, ang iba ayaw pang umamin. Buti nga nangyari yun. :) Peace lang mga tol!

    • pauldoh says:

      Wow, congrats. If you can send me pictures ng mga item na napanalunan mo, lets see kung pwede kong iinclude din para makita ng ibang readers. Thanks!

  15. JuanMig says:

    Nice blog you have there. This will surely help our fellow bidders in choosing the best Piso Auction Site in the country. I also have a write up called IS PINOYBIDDER SAFE?. Try to check this out! :) Thanks JP!

  16. Jermaine says:

    YES! Nakakairita talaga ang Bidangbidder na yun! Dami ko pang bidpacks na nabili pagkatapos ay nawala na lang bigla. Wala man lang pasabi o complimentary stuffs para man lang mapunan ang ginawa nila sa mga members nila. Ayaw ko ng umasa pa.

    • pauldoh says:

      Marami akong naririnig at nababasang masama about this bidangbidder. Marami ang napapraning dahil sa mga penny auction site na nagsasara.

  17. MysticLiz says:

    Have anyone heard nga na ang daming na ban sa Pisobid kasi may na violate sa rules ng game? Ang daming na ban dun kaso lumipat lang sa ibang auction site like Pinoybidders and Bilibid. Paano naman yung mga newbies? Hinahakot ng mga veterans ang prizes eh. Read my blog about this one:
    Bilibid: Veteran bidders stands tall in this new Piso Auction Site

  18. Anonymous says:

    actually guys saka lang sila nagkaroon ng TIN nung nagban sila ng mga players nila na di nila ininform yun violations kung ano…. im a bidder sa pisobid before at di ko alam why i was banned… they dont answer queues pag nagtanong ka why you we’re banned. It stated sa TOS nila na bago ka iban iinform ka muna nila bago i block ang account mo pero nde nila ginawa yun…. Yun lang experience ko sa pisobid…share ko lang guys

      Hi fortdan,
      During the times that I was observing pisobid, you were one of the frequent names that I saw. Thanks for commenting on this blog. I’m glad to hear your side too. Maybe, isasama ko to sa post :)

    Hi Paul,

    Finally a blog that is objectively looking at auction sites in regards to their legitimacy and not just malicious rumor mongering. I would just like to add my 2 cents worth to the discussion.

    I am papa888. I am a bidder who has been bidding since Winila the 1st local auction site was introduced in the Philippines. I consider myself a veteran. Hehehe…. (Which doesn’t necessarily mean I win every time. I actually lose more often now than I did before due to the great influx of players in the game.) I admit it’s addicting and like you I have studied objectively the different sites so as to determine for myself the legitimacy of their operations in order for me to bid.

    Pisobid is legit. That much I can say. As a former player, I have indeed received the prizes that I had bought from their site. I don’t question their legitimacy and actually like their site. However, like Fort above, I was also banned by Pisobid without any explanation or reason being given. Just a general statement that “You know what you did, now is the time to come clean!” (Huh????) Subsequent follow-up emails asking for explanations have all remained unanswered. I am extremely disappointed at the “high-handed” manner in which they conducted the BAN. Their original TOS stated that they would give you specific reasons prior to any BAN being imposed but they did not follow this and subsequently changed this to “without prior warning”. At the time of my being banned, I had over 3500 bids in my account and awaiting delivery of 2 prizes that I had fully paid for including the delivery charges. These were withheld without any clear or valid explanation. I leave to your readers the decision whether Pisobid deserves their patronage.

    This is the 1st time I am discussing this issue in public and thank you for providing me the fair and objective venue in which to air my side.

    As to Bilibid and Pinoybidders, I am also convinced of their legitimacy as I have won some items in both and have received the prizes within a week of my winning them. I have won 3 times at Bilibid and about 5 times at Pinoybidders. Their systems are vastly different and each have their own problems. However, I can say that both are very customer centric as they both are easily contacted for any problems with their respective sites. Bilibid delivers their major prizes personally, while Pinoybidders uses a courier for all their prizes.

    So far, I can say that they are both reliable sites with their own problems but mitigated by their very good customer service and relations with their bidders.

    So for the purpose of your blog, I can say that these 3 sites, Pisobid / Bilibid / Pinoybidders, are legitimate. Again, I leave to your readers which sites are indeed deserving of our patronage as bidders.

    Thanks Pauldoh! Keep up the good work!

    • pauldoh says:

      Hi papa888.
      Thanks for this comment. I’m glad that you spent some time giving us and those who also want clear info about pisobid. I’ll be adding this comment on my post, and as what you’ve said, I’ll let my readers decide whether Pisobid deserves their patronage.

      • papa888 says:

        Thanks Paul…. Glad to be of service. Blogs like yours can actually be used by prospective bidders as reference for choosing which sites are really good and legit!

        Again, keep it up!

    • media says:

      Hi papa888 and Fortdan! This is media, active biddier din po sa Pisobid. Too make it short, kilalang kilala ko po ito si fortdan and prettyhazel. I think nagka overlap pa kami nito nung I was playing in Pisobid pa. Anyways, For me po. Pisobid is legit and I did not have any bad experiences about it.

      I don’t think pinag kaisahan ng Pisobid and mga multiple winners or nilagyan ng mali tapos na ban. I was a multiple winner too. Pero hindi naman nila ako diniskitahan.

      Siguro dun sumabit sina papa888 and fortdan sa rule na NO TEAM PLAYING. Nakapost kasi yan sa first page ng Pisobid nuon. Sabi nila, “Team play is an absolute No No”. And as I remember, hindi lang minsan nag warn ang Pisobid about abusers. Ilang beses sila nag warn. I think fortdan and papa888 made friends sa Pisobid and now on Bilibid.

      Doon sa Pisobid, hindi tinotolerate ang ganyan. Paminsan aatras na lang ang kung sino para mag bigay daan sa kaibigan. Kaibigan mo nga kaya dapat magtulungan. Which is not tolerated sa Pisobid. That is considered team play pa rin.

      While in Bilibid, sila sila ang nananalo. hunter257, prettyhazel, papa888, huggieboi etc. Kasi walang rule na nagbabawal dito. Look at Bilbid now. As in now, and check the winners section, kani kanilang pangalan lang ang nandun. Hindi nag lalaban ang mga veteran bidders kasi nga magkakaibigan sila. Eh yung kawawa yung mga newbies na kahit P500 worth ng GC hindi pinagbibigyan.

      As of now, hindi na po ako nag bibid sa kahit anong piso auction site. And wala na akong balita about Pisobid. Bilibid lang chinecheck ko kasi bago, pero nung makita ko ang mga winners, ayaw ko na rin mag laro. lol.

  21. Fortdan Marie D. Teofilo says:

    @Media

    Di po ba concept din nila ung mgakaron ka ng bagong kaibigan thru FB? nakalagay yan sa kanila….at cyempre in long run di mo maiwasan magkaron ka nag kaibigan….

    Pero para hinde magulo eto ang tignan mo po…

    Team Play = Bidding in one ITEM

    Collusion = is an agreement between two or more persons not to bid with the said item…

    Both are penalty… so san ka lulugar lumaban k sa kaibigan mo penalty? pag hinde k lumaban penalty pa rin???
    eh samantalang ang concept nila you will also “GAIN SOME FRIENDS” di ba…??

    ngayon confusing sila…
    Plus… para san ung “RECRUIT A FRIEND AND GAIN A FREE BID CREDIT” eh alam naman natin na ang iba dito bago pa lang magkapisobid meron ng FB…. ngayon kng ikaw at ung friend mo gusto ang iisang item.. magbid kayong dalawa it will be a TEAMPLAY at all…. pero kng ung isa sa inyo nagparaya dahil kaibigan mo nga siya it will be a COLLISION…

    Did you get my point there…

    Im a LOAD or BIDPACK Seller (dapat nga pasalamat si Pisobid dahil matindi ako magmarket sa kanila i even suggest them to provide me a promotional Material to promote them sa lahat ng sinsuplayan ko ng load) anyway kaya di mo maiiwasan na maging friend ko in FB ang mga Bidders because the fact is i am a BiD Seller… and i value my costumers so much.. di kasi ako tipo ng ibang seller pag tapos mo bumili … tama na yan kumita na ko hehe!!

    In business 101 “You must maintain your good relationship with your costumers ”

    Now try to Analyze this….

    then usap ule tayo…

    • media says:

      Bahala na lang ang taong humusga jan. Ako wala akong issue sa mga veteran bidders kasi alam ko naman ano pasikot2 sa mga auction site.

      Ok na yun malaman ng tao/bumabasa ng blog na to na nagtitinda ka ng bid packs both sa Pisobid and Bilibid tapos marami kang naging kaibigan na ayaw mo kalabanin or the other way around.

      Ang mambabasa na lang ang humusga. Hindi na naman ako naglalaro sa Pisobid or sa Bilibid eh. Busy kasi.

    • pauldoh says:

      sorry natagalan ako magrepply… kung sabagay totoo to, mukang marami talagang hindi magandang nangyari sa mga winners.

    Hi Blogger rappycutter here! Won an iPhone 4 for only P3.63 pesos. Hindi naman po ako taga Pisobid and I do think it’s legit, Wala naman pong problema sa shipment sa payment and all. Ayos din tol! Be careful lang sa pag pa register kasi very strict sila sa mga members nila ngayon. Check nyo to:

  23. Joe d' Mango says:

    Pisobid is not a scam. Nagresearch po ako mabuti sa Pisobid. Magjojoin sana ako kaso wala talagang time.

    First of all, members should know that this is a business and not a charity organization. Members should play in order to get the item that they want.

    As for bots, i really know when there is one. Have you seen the new auction site called bidrepublic.ph? Dito maraming bots. Umaabot hanggang 500 pesos ang price eh tapos ang bilis pa.

    Also, Pisobid has been in the online business since May and everyday they are giving lots of items. I think the items they have given has totaled to 2000+.

    As for security, Pisobid has been very strict in running the law. They have banned numerous abusers (who are now sucking dry Bilibid) and provided new auction types para fair ang chances ng lahat.

    Now you choose.

  24. tippy says:

    It is a fact that Pisobid.com is now one of the coolest site in the Philippines.

    My Pisobid experience started out slow (thought it was another scam site). But after I participated in the bidding process(which is pretty exciting), I later understand how it really works.

    Since their launch, My interest on Pisobid rocketed all because of their amazingly super discounted items and the excitement that it gives me. For more than a month now, they have auctioned hundreds of products ranging from Smartphones, DSLR Cameras, Macbook, Gift Certificates and more with 40,000+ Facebook followers. Amazing!

    For the benefit of those who doesn’t know about this awesome site. Pisobid is just like an auction. Item starts at 1.00 and .01cents will be added up everytime someone bids for the product. The last highest bidder will get the item.

    If one has a question about the website (e.g. How to register?, Where to Buy Bidpacks and etc) Pisobid’s customer support are always on stand by to help newcomers for their issues and concerns.

    Pisobid has offered their members the excitement of bidding and the chance of getting an amazing shopping opportunity in the convenience of your home!

    A little tip for those who want to join Pisobid: Be observant and strategize. Observe the site first and make a strategy before placing your bid. Know the elements of the webpage to avoid wasting your bids. By the way, you will have 5 free bids upon registration. Awesome right?

  25. Love says:

    nag-try ako nyan dati.pero kung 5 free bids ka lang chances are next to zero.wala ka talagang pag-asa manalo.
    maraming veteran ang nakaabang sa bawat bids. strategy talaga at kailangan marami ka rin pantaya syempre. hanggang sa kahuli-hulihang segundo may susulpot at mag-bibid tapos ma-eextend ulit yung oras. tempting yung mga prizes pero never ako mag-aaksaya ng oras at pera dito. Goodluck!

    follow me back– Love

    • Harvey Valdez says:

      Totally,Sample lang po ang 5 Bids pero yungmay nkalagay na cherry ICON for1 bid pack purchase so paano kung manalo ka sa5 bids..
      Actually nanalo ako,PAANO NA YUN…?

  26. BarneyStinson says:

    Tried PisoBidding last last week and I actually won twice. All you need to do is buy more bids and more bids will give you big chance of winning. And I also noticed that ang daming nanalo na newbies last last week. Wala na nga akong nakikitang veterans na nanalo eh. Saya!

    May nakita po ako, bagong bidding site. Sa pisobid mahirap na manalo kasi andaming tao. Eto bago pa lang kaya join na kayo:

      Have you seen the winners section in panalo.ph? Grabe! Puro denz666 and papa888 ang nakikita ko!

      Hehehe.. Ang daming wins kaya ni denz666 sa Pisobid and Bilibid and papa888? Banned in PisoBid and naghahakot ng prices sa Bilibid!

      Sa tingin nyo madali manalo kung walang mga limitations ang bidding? Sa tingin nyo ba madali manalo kung andito ang mga taong ito?

      TRY NIYO NA LANG, Bili kayo 10,000 pesos worth of bid packs. hehehe

  28. Michael says:

    Have you noticed Pisobid now? Majority of the items may nakalagay na cherry na! Some of them says, only bidders with 3 wins can participate or only bidders with less than 50T, 40T, 30T, 20T worth of wins can win.

    In short, I think Pisobid is now giving a big chance for the new members. I read some of the comments from veteran bidders that they are somewhat like disappointed kasi wala na masyadong para sa kanila. I think tama lang naman po. Para naman po may malaking chance ang mga new members na manalo ng mga prizes.

    Mas ok nga na wala ang mga veteran bidders na yan. Para mas patas ang chances ng mga newbies.

    Isa lang naman tanong ng blogger eh, Is PisoBid Scam Or Not?

    Answer: NOT

    Why: Because I Already won!

    URL: http://pisobid.com/Auctions/Sony-Cybershot-W510/1849

    How: Registered, bought 250 bid pack and bid

    Comments: For sure ang mga nagsasabi lang na peke/scam ang PisoBid ay yung mga malaki ang naipatalo. Pero for sure gusto pa rin nilang sumali uli. Nagbabakasakali. Tsk.

    Hi Paul,

    Great blog post you have here. It’s good that you took the liberty to investigate for the benefit of other people who are interested in piso auctions.

    With the huge discounts given, its pretty easy to assume that its just a scam. This is why we at http://www.Happy2bid.com try to be as transparent as possible to alleviate the doubts that people may have. We are already on our pre-launch phase and are open for registration. We have learned a lot from the mistakes of those that came before us so we hope we can avoid the ire of the veteran bidders who feel they’ve been treated unfairly.

    Let’s all just bid in the name of good fun. Happy Holidays!

  31. Well, I must say that I enjoyed reading your blog post and all of the comments ;) It’s nice to see that our website generates so much interest and we can only hope it’ll stay like that for a long time. We enjoy running auctions, we enjoy developing technology that’s behind it, we enjoy interacting with community… so for every single one of us in the team, Pisobid has been one huge, trilling ride that just keeps on giving.

    And that’s also what we want for our customers. I see that some of the commentators call us “high-handed”, “tough” and “non-flexible”. Sure, we are like that. And we don’t see why that would be an issue – we have reputation and customers to protect and for sure we won’t cuddle anyone with warnings every minute or so. When you register, we are very clear on what is allowed and what is not allowed, and it’s up to every single user to decide whether he wants to be protected or prosecuted by the rules.

    Would we like that situation is different? Sure – we would LOVE if all of our customers would play fair. When we first launched the site we actually didn’t have any built in control for fraud. How that worked for us? Pretty awesome – some of the fraudsters registered as much as 100 accounts. When we cornered some of them and asked to explain how they are not at least bored to create so many accounts for 5 bids and switch between accounts every now and then, you know what they said?

    I haven’t created any extra accounts.

    So since then we have embarked on a mission to expand on security of our system. We knew that small number of people will be against it, but we also knew that majority would welcome fair and safe bidding environment. Most don’t know, but our development team is actually based in United States (offices in San Francisco and Saint Louis) and is pretty well connected. We have partnerships with Yahoo, Facebook, Google and many others, that allow us to analyze some of their tracking data (I am pretty sure that you guys know how Facebook collects your browsing history on every web page that has Like Button) and thus we can really protect fair bidders on our website from those who are not. So, we are confident that we will always be the only choice for 95% of customers since we can offer what none other Philippines bidding site can when it comes to quality of bidding environment.

    And while we are this subject – I wanted to wish all the best to those who are trying to be our competitors ;). No, seriously – we don’t see any of you as a real threat; plus without you guys, people we block would have nowhere to go and we would need to dedicate more resources on preventing them from coming back to Pisobid. So, keep copying our Terms and Conditions, auction schedule (well, at least the cheap items from the schedule), and all other stuff you want – we sincerely don’t mind, as long as you can keep doing such a good job of helping us concentrate on features and business development, rather than meager daily tasks.

    To conclude – thanks to all of you who have supported us so far, thanks to both papa888 and fortdan023 for their testimonials (we miss you guys ;) and thanks to the owner of this blog for investigating our offering and providing place for good discussion. We are looking forward to being a part of Philippines Internet scene for many years to come; and we can only hope that we will always be there to provide fun bidding environment and exciting prizes for everyone.

    And just to repeat one final thing I always say – if you run into any problems using Pisobid, please do not hesitate to contact us over our support channel on http://pisobid.com/contactus.aspx ! We are always glad to help! ;)

      Hi Chief Pisobid Admin,

      Thanks for taking the time out to share with us your thoughts.

      First and foremost “I miss you too!” (LOL)

      2nd I’d like to congratulate you on your continued success. You have spawned an industry that has become a major industry in itself and grown by leaps and bounds at a rate unseen in business. This is evidenced by the almost overnight sprouting of legit and not so legit sites all over the place.

      Finally, I’d like to address your reaction to my “high-handed” comment. I only refer to you as high-handed in the manner in which the ban was implemented. If the ban is necessary and a violation was really committed, whether malicious or inadvertent, then so be it. However, when I say high=handed, I refer simply to the non-reply to my various emails asking for a specific reason for the ban. Other than that, I have no problem with Pisobid nor with not being allowed to play at Pisobid. As one of your original players, I am happy to have been a part of it at it’s beginnings. (Mama888 continues to be happy with the LV!)

      Again, thanks for your time.

      More power…..

      Papa888

      Pauldoh,

      Thanks again for allowing me to once again share my thoughts through your blog…..

      • pauldoh says:

        Hi Papa888. I’m happy that my blog has become a bridge to you and Pisobid in expressing your thoughts about this issue.

      • First of all – sorry for late reply – first I was in the middle of overseeing our development team that was working on PisoBud (Auto Bidding), then I was watching how marketing team was promoting it… mess as you can guess.

        Anyways, before I say anything more, to make one thing clear – things I am posting here are not official Pisobid stance on anything; they are rather my personal opinions and stances. Probably 99% of people who visit our website never quite get the feeling of how big company we are in terms of number of people employed and overall effort that goes on behind the curtains (probably that’s why there are so many 2 man teams popping-up, trying to copy what we do, and then failing).

        This is important to say, because in every big system – single individual, even if on high position (like me), can not track all decisions made, and probably does not agree with all of the decisions made.

        That being said – funny thing is that I was against banning papa888 ;). But at the time when mass bans were going on I was too busy with our development team in the US to get involved into anything else. So, when internal email with list of banned users arrived I just looked into it for brief explanation of what is going on (I never went too deep, but as I understood, you were grouping up in a private Facebook groups and agreeing on items you’ll help each other win). After seeing papa888 in the list, since I watched your video testimonial, I replied with something like “Come on – don’t ban him, he seemed like a nice guy”.

        As you can tell from the status of your account – my reply didn’t help much ;). But, I accepted it then, as I accepted it now. Simply, people who were on that task had way more data than I, even now, have. They did their homework, analyzed bunch of data, and tagged the people for bans. And it seems they did a good job, if nothing else – recent similar action by one of our “competitors” proves they were completely on target (luckily for you papa888 it seems they better listen to their Chief Admin ;)).

        In the end, I am sorry to a degree that I couldn’t do much preventively (or even now since our CEO has a stance to not allow banned users back on the site under any conditions). I am saying that because even from the posts you have made here, it’s obvious you are a classy guy – there is not any emotional bitterness in your review of Pisobid. So, whatever happens – good luck in all of your endeavors and good luck in your future bidding career ;)

      • Papa888 says:

        Hi Chief Pisobid Admin,

        I’m sorry that I only was able to revisit this blog only now.

        Thank you very much for clarifying and finally putting closure to this issue of Banning at Pisobid.

        In regards to the FB group you mentioned above, YES, I was a part of that group. I openly admit that I was invited and accepted becoming a member of that group. If that was the basis for my banning from Pisobid and if it is indeed against your TOS, then the Ban is accepted.

        This was all I was always asking for. A plain and simple reason for the ban.

        However, as guilty as my admission to being a part of that group may sound, I would also like to address the impression that the admission creates.

        My being a part of that group was simply to have a forum wherein to speak to other like-minded people who shared the common interest of bidding. This was a place where we could open up and discuss different topics about auctions sites and the auctions themselves.

        In so doing, friendships were made and bonds were created. In time, these friendships developed to the point wherein, I personally decided, to refrain from bidding against my friends. Technically, this can be defined as COLLUSION. However, in terms of “delicadeza”, to refrain from bidding against a friend is simply the RIGHT THING TO DO.

        Regarding the issue of teamplay, I ask that you check your Bidding Logs to see if there was an auction wherein I actively participated in that can be construed as teamwork for any particular item. When I play, I expect my friends not to bid against me as they can expect of me. But in the auction proper itself, I was on my own as they were on their own.

        Thank you once again for the clarification and as they say “mea culpa”.

        I question no more……

        Sincerely,

        Papa888

        p.s. Thanks for your support even if it went to naught, I thank you just the same. And also for your personal comments. More Power!

      Hello po Chief Admin,

      Ako po si jtab888 na bidder nyo sa Pisobid. Matagal na po akong bidder sa inyo at masaya naman ako dati bilang bidder nyo. Nakapagdeliver na po kayo ng mga napanalunan ko at naintervview nyo na nga ako. Naanyayahan ko na din po ang inyong mga tagadeliver sa aking munting bahay.

      Kaya po ako napilitang mag-post dito ay dahilan po sa 2 bagay. Una po ay ang hindi pagdeliver ng winning ko na BB 9360 mula pa noong March 28 pa po. Pangalawa po ay napakaraming email ko na po sa inyong support pero wala pa ding sagot.

      Nagtataka po ako dahil bigla na lang may email kayo sa akin na related daw ako sa isang bidder nyo? Nagtanong naman ako kung sino ay wala naman pong sagot kayo. Tinanong ko ang kapatid ko kung naglalaro sya sa inyo ay hindi daw. Wala din kaming pinsan na naglalaro sa inyo. Kaya nalilito na ako kung ano ang ibig ninyong sabihin?

      Basta sa pagkakaalam ko ay wala po akong kakilalang player ninyo ngayon.

      Sana po ay sa pamamagitan ng pag-post ko dito ay mabigyan po natin ng kaliwanagan ang nangyayari sa Pisobid. Masyado na pong matagal ang paghihintay ko sa pagdeliver ninyo ng BB 9360. Hindi na nga latest model yang BB 9360 sa tagal ng paghihintay ko.

      Salamat po Chief Admin.

      Naghihintay,

      Joseph Table

        I found out about Pisobid through a post by someone at a blog that I ran across and decided to visit and see for myself if what they say is true about all the bargains that can be had at Pisobid. After seeing the testimonials and observing the auctions, I decided to try it out. I am still a new bidder but I have been lucky to have won items at Pisobid. After winning, I was so excited to continue playing that I immediately bought more bids so I can bid for more items. I lost some and won some. Still my excitement continued. But as the days turned into weeks and into months with no delivery coming, my excitement turned to disappointment. Pisobid claims that they are the biggest and most respected site in the Philippines. As such, my expectation was that they would live up to their reputation and deliver won items in a timely manner. As of today, I have won 3 items only with 1 major item won almost 2 months ago and still no delivery.

        Is Pisobid going to close already without delivering the prizes won or should I say bought by their members? I am scared because I invested a pretty big amount already.

        Sir Chief Pisobid Admin, I ask for your intervention not just for myself but for all your winners who deserve to receive their won items. Please consider the reputation of Pisobid that is at stake here. I want to continue playing but I am scared that even if I win, I might not receive my winnings.

        Please help us Sir.

        Thank you Mr. Paul for having this forum to air our concerns.

    hi,

    i came across piso bid in facebook. and i am still a little bit woozy about it. how does it really work? im confused about the payment – bid thingy…

    you buy bids, say 500 bids for 3000? (is that it?)

    if you consume the 500 bids, that is 3000 on you? and what if you dont win? will that be consumed as well?

    and if you do win, say 50.41 — how much do you really pay the site?

    the 3000 peso bid pack and 50.41 pesos plus shipping? for real?

    can someone explain how this goes? thanks in advance

    it is vaguely explained in the site… im not an idiot and yet, i dont get it. i did not want to try bidding as of yet just to test waters… i need proof from those people who has already tried it.

    • pauldoh says:

      Hi Kim.

      About your question, first, before you can participate in pisobid auctions, you have to buy bids. Bid prices depends on the package that you’ll avail.
      For example a 500 bid pack worth P3,000. You have to purchase this first before you can bid on the item that you want. In simple words, pay before you play.

      Now in case you win, you’ll only pay its price after bidding plus the shipping fee. Say the highest bidder on a Blackberry is you at the price of P30.53, you’ll pay this amount plus the shipping fee.
      Now if you lose, then you get nothing and won’t get you bid points back so you have to bid wisely.

      If you want to try it, bookmark my site or like Straw Hat JP’s Facebook Fanpage for I’ll be giving 25bid to 20 of my readers soon.Maybe next week.

      I hope my answers helped you.

  33. its a scam!!! they even threaten me that they will sue me if i dont delete my blog about how they banned me without doing anything in my blog you can read and discover how they banned us without being notified why did they do that… i also didnt receive my prizes paid after they banned us,.. and for your info guys pisobid started without the TIN and bir registration, they just started to have their tin when they banned all the multiple winners.. this pisobid should be down by now. they only get money from bidders.. their a big fucking loser

    • pauldoh says:

      Hi posobidderisscam. Your comments seem to bear a lot of grudge to pisobid. Maybe the chief admin might read your comment and might answer your sentiments too.

    • Heh ;) I usually don’t respond to angry people, because it is hard to communicate when somebody is constantly swearing at you… but I guess I can answer one thing here, if for nothing else then because it is (at least for me) quite interesting.

      Because our developers are in the US – when we first launched the site, they didn’t have good understanding of local culture and importance of certain things. And executives who are from Philippines kept pushing the things like posting TIN on the site, while developers were like “Yeah, right – I have more important stuff to do than add 12 digits code throughout the site” – simply they couldn’t believe that it makes such a big difference.

      In the end – when we did add it throughout the site… we saw significant increase in registrations and payments. So, it’s definitely a cultural lesson – one I am extremely glad we have learned ;)

      For those still untrusting – I don’t know details, but I would believe it not hard to check details on TIN in local register – do it and you’ll see it was registered before site was launched (as I know we couldn’t operate without it).

  34. BoomBoom says:

    WOW! I was startled by the comment of the PisoBid admin. They should do this often. Going to blogs to show that they are the only trustworthy auction site here in the Philippines.

    @papa888 It was clear on the Terms Of Agreement na they will not entertain any questions as soon as they caught abusers sa sight. So, ayun. HULI KA.. =) Pero ok lang yun, you had your time naman sa PisoBid, dami mo rin nahakot and also on another bidding site na nagbubulagan sa pandaraya ninyo. Oo! Sa bilibid tinutukoy ko.

    Anyways. Bilib ako sa PisoBid sa pag punta niya at pagcomment dito.

    @Pauldoh nice blog you got there.

  35. MarioLopez says:

    @pisobidderscam as long as meron na silang BIR and TIN hindi na siya matatawag na scam ever.

    If nagagalit ang mga tao dahil wala silang napanalunan sa PisoBid, wag nila e blame ang PisoBid, dapat e blame nila sarili nila dahil hindi naman nag uutomatic na magbid ang kamay ng isang tao.

    Diba? Gusto kasi ng Pinoy bumili ng iPhone worth 1 peso. =)

    Kahit saan ka pumunta kahit alcatel wala ka mabibili.

    Pagkatapos matalo nagiging scam na agad. =)

  36. JustSaying says:

    I just noticed.

    When papa888 is commenting on a certain blog, andyan din sa Pisobidderscam.

    Once may nakita akong blog na pinagbibintangan ng isang blogger si papa888 na siya rin yang sumisira sa Pisobid.

    I think eto yung blog:

    http://mysticliza.blogspot.com/2011/09/bilibid-veteran-bidders-stands-tall-in.html

    Halos sabay din sila nagcomment jan..

    Wala lang. Share ko lang.

    • pauldoh says:

      wait natin, baka magreply si papa888 tungkol sa comment mo. Thanks for sharing the info.

    • Papa888 says:

      Hi Just Saying,

      I comment here and in other blogs simply to add my 2 cents worth into the discussion and at times to defend myself from malicious comments being made without knowledge of the facts of the matter.

      If pisobidderscam is following my comments wiht his own, then that is his right. However, just to be clear, I DO NOT KNOW WHO PISOBIDDERSCAM IS NOR AM I HIM!

      If you read my comments above, or any other blog for that matter, I have never said Pisobid is a scam. I have actually stated categorically and plainly, Pisobid is not a scam but LEGIT!

      Sana please do not link my name anymore with these comments that proclaim statements that contradict my own.

      Thanks again Pauldoh!

    • TheGodfather says:

      Is that true? Meron po ba kayong proof na sila nga yan? If meron man please post it here para po ma check ng Pisobid chief. Kasi sa pagkaka alam ko, they (papa888,hunter357,joballesteros) were banned because of team play.

      I will email their support right now so that they can check if this is true and para rin mabigyan ng action to.

      Baka andun na naman sila because of the strawberry auctions. Kung new member ka kasi, mas malaki ang chance manalo because of this strawberry auctions.

      Anyway, kung meron kang proof, you can email support@pisobid.com

  38. ariel says:

    i think pisobid is not a scam at all is a website that giving the people a chance to win a item who is 99% off

  39. Papa888 says:

    Ngek! Sorry to disappoint you Concerned! But that’s not me, I have enough bidsites that I play in for me to go back to Pisobid! They have enough players as it is! Ok na ako sa Bilibid, Pinoybidshot, Bidmania, Pinoytiangge and Panalo. That’s more than enough for me…..

  40. Tin says:

    Hi, I would just like to add something here and hopefully someone somewhere can clear this out, I’m hoping someone from pisobid would actually take notice. First I want to clarify I am a member of Pisobid and I do understand how their business works and I admit it’s more of a gambling sport than an auction and I have nothing against that, I do like to gamble from time to time and within reason of course =) But the reason for this post is because I seem to see a pattern where people keep on saying that people who actually do try to defend Pisobid seems to be just one person using different names. I didn’t really pay that much attention to this until I came across this. Now this are just things I found and I am just sharing this with anyone. To the moderator I’m sorry but I’m not familiar with how to copy the website itself so I’ll just give you the sites and I would really appreciate it if you could help me to copy/paste them to show how they really appear.

    Ok, so let’s start, I first saw this post on http://underqualified.net/2011/11/19/pisobid-com-review/
    here’s the post by Renz Sy: It was
    late friday when Pisobid auctioned a super awesome LG 50″ 3D Plasma TV
    Bundle. A day before that, I prepared to catch this big Plasma TV on my net
    purchasing a 1000 bids just to get it. The most awaited time came. Many
    Pisobidders are ready. I waited. That was my strategy. And after a few
    minutes, THE AUCTION ENDED!! I was a little pissed but then realized how fair
    Pisobid is.

    It was later explained that the auction ended abnormally because people
    waited just a millisecond long. The original price was P118000.00 and was
    sold for a stunning super discounted price of P11.76!! My jaw dropped! Eyes
    popped out! But deep inside me, I was happy thinking that everything is fair
    here in Pisobid and everyone gets the chance to win the prize. I did not win,
    but with the experience, I believe that every Pisobidder will be one day. All
    they need is preparation and patience combined with good strategy. They will
    surely win one. Thanks Pisobid!! :) More power!!

    Sure does give a lot of credibility doesn’t it? And there are 2 more posts by 2 “different” people after that says Pisobid is a legit site, yada…yada…yada. The moderator of that site replied by saying it seems that the post came from the same IP Address and the people who commented seemed to have made their yahoo account on the same date.

    Ok that made me curious but no red flags yet, until I happened to come across this site scampisobid.com and saw the exact same thing, posted by a barney on Nov. 20, 2011.

    Now, I did already mentioned this to the first site I mentioned and if you don’t mind I’d just like to copy my comment there as it explains what I found.

    Here is what I said:

    Hi, I’m not sure if you’re still updating this but I just happened to come across it when I was checking Pisobid scam. Now I haven’t decided yet on this issue but I did happen to come across something very curious. The post of Renz Sy about what “happened” to him. I saw the exact same post on scampisobid.com by a barney posted on Nov 20, 2011. So I did a little digging and lo and behold another user had the exact same thing happened to them and they just happened to tell about it the exact same way, it’s on the site called webutation.net and this time it’s posted by a Simon Sibos last Aug. 12, 2011. Now I would understand if the same person was just too lazy to rewrite what happened to him and just kept pasting it on different sites, the curious thing about it are the different dates and the fact that they actually made an effort to make it seem like more than one people had a “i feel bummed that I lost but it’s ok because i had fun and everything is legit anyway” feeling about pisobid.

    Again I repeat I haven’t decided yet, and I do bid on Pisobid and seriously contemplating on investing on the bids as I do have fun, but this really made me think twice on how honest the people really are in Pisobid. The issue here isn’t if they are legal or not, casinos are legal and we all know that the house always win but people still go there because they have fun and they do know what they’re getting into and they are given a fair chance to win. (Just so you know I do go to casinos from time to time =) ) But I do take offense when someone is not being straightforward about their intentions.

    Maybe if all of us do a little research on this we can finally find out what’s what with this site. And I just saw this, another person who seems to go around site telling people that Pisobid is legit and actually slamming those who say that’s it’s a scam curiously had the exact same experience, for those who are curious look for gadgetfreak on pinoyexchange on the forum regarding this, he was the first to post so far as he did write about it last july 2011 maybe someone can find this person who seems to have a multiple personality and make them tell the truth. And for those who want to curse at me and disagree with everything please note I only stated what I found out and as I’ve said over and over again I just want to know the truth I am not siding with anyone on this issues.

    I know this is a really long post but I’m hoping what I found can shed some more light into this. As I said I have nothing against Pisobid but I do want them to clear up why people, connected to them or not, seems to make the extra effort just to show that “a lot” of people feel that Pisobid is not a scam.

    This part is my opinion on what I found and if you have any violent reactions feel free to do so, just don’t pretend to be more than one person just to try and prove your point. =) What I want to know is if this person is not really connected to Pisobid why make all this effort, from the looks of things he/she/it has been on this campaign for months now, is he/she/it a hardcore pisobid fan that he/she/it would need to resort to dishonesty just to say what they want to say. And if indeed they are connected to Pisobid, why go to all this trouble when your site is really honest in all its dealings?

    I hope someone clears this out soon.

  41. cooldoods says:

    After careful research and analysis, i think penny auction sites (such as PisoBid) are legal. However, I personally would not want to patronize such sites. My reason? You never know if you are bidding against a human or a bot. Or a human “employee”, which is basically a bidder controlled by the website.

    Let’s say you have your eye on an iPhone. Bidding is almost over and the price is mere centavos over a peso. Just when bidding time is up, you make a bid. Great, you’re the highest bidder. And you’ll win the iPhone — if no one else bids.

    But there is always someone who bids against you. Yes, it could be another participant. But it could also be an automated program. Or a human employee whose job it is to keep the bidding alive. At least until the price goes up to where the website makes a lot of money — from the collective cash you and other unwitting people who plunked down their money in hopes of winning something.

    The basic condition/algorithm would be:

    As long as Current Price < Website's Reserve Price
    Keep the bidding going!

    Yes, the winner will most probably get the item as promised. But not after the website's program has made lots of money from you and everyone else who made a bid for it. A few pesos per bid, who's to complain? But if you count it all up, it's a lot of money. You have all just been collectively swindled.

    The point is, penny auction websites are run by programs and programmers and employees. So, you never know. And I for one don't want to be a victim. I'd rather save up my money to buy the things I want. Sure, everyone loves a shortcut. But if you win, keep in mind, it just might have been at the expense of other people who have just been victimized.

      tama si cool…

      e2ng mga bidding sites na ito ay legal problema since
      system generated pdeng may kalaban ka ngang empleyado o ung system mismo.. anyway di ako mag aaksaya ng oras maglaro nitong mga to kasi maasar ka lang marami dyang mga oldtimers na sobrang dami ng budget wala kang kapanapanalo kasi pag naka kuha na ng iphone yan benta mo lang may 10k ka ulit pansali pag nanalo benta sali ulit… ung mga newbies nga-nga….

    I think hindi naman siguro hinihintay ng mga Piso Auction Site (like Pisobid) na makabawi muna sila sa price tsaka na lang ibibigay ang item. As you can see sa Winners block ng site, marami namang item na hindi man lang umabot sa price nila. And to think na hindi lang ang small items, kasali na ang mga big items dito.

    http://pisobid.com/Auctions/LG-Optimus-3-D-Phone/6133
    http://pisobid.com/Auctions/Kindle-Keyboard-3G-WiFi/6126

    Marami pang mga items na naibigay na hindi man lang sila nakabawi.

    Minsan nakakatakot sumali pero nagbibigay naman sila ng mga proof.

  43. ANO CAMO says:

    Gusto ko sana sumali sa Pisobid pero base sa mga nabasa ko dito nagbago isip ko. Hindi ko kasi maintindihan.
    *May nag tanong kasi minsan – “When you bid and didn’t won, mawawala na un binid (pera) mo?” tapos ang sagot – “No, once you have clicked the “BID” button and placed a bid, you cannot withdraw it. Already submitted bids are final and cannot be undone.”
    -ang pagkaintindi ko pag nagbid ka at natalo ka, goodbye na rin yung pera mo? eh halimbawa yung bid pack na 200php for 12 bids. pag ginamit mo yun lahat at talo ka goodbye na rin yung 200php mo?
    -Eh di parang nag-share ka lang sa amount nung product? sad to say di ikaw ang owner. kung susumahin ang lahat ng bid amount ng bidder at kung maraming bidder mas mataas pa yung price ng product sa actual price sa market.
    -isa pa, kung nagbaban sila ng user without proven reason, at lalo pa kung marami ka pang natirang bidding money at meron ka pang unclaimed product..eh hindi pa ba SCAM yun? kanila na yung laman ng account mo at yung product mo ibebenta nila sa iba.
    -buti pa EBAY…mag-bid ka…wala agad na involve na pera…kaya walang mawawala sayo kahit matalo ka sa bidding.

  44. Jane Muriel says:

    Masasabing ang Pisobid ay Game of Chance din. Mas maraming bids, mas malaking chance na manalo. Pero if marunong kang dumiskarte, makukuha mo pa rin ang prize kahit hindi gaanong madami ang bids mo.

    The risk that you will take in playing will either give you the prize or uuwi kang walang panalo.

    Maraming gustong magtake ng risk para sa prize na yun. Kahit ako, kung may pera lang ako, I am willing to take the risk for the item that I want.

    Hello Paul! Here’s another scoop of news from the banned pisobid players.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2f7eYvPxhs&feature=relmfu
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtePRBs0lwg&feature=relmfu
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2T2UFxJsVU&feature=relmfu
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HLZQKQTQGoQ&feature=relmfu

    Youtube videos po yan about sa kalokohan na ginagawa ng mga heavyweight bidders sa BILIBID. Ngayon? Magtatanong pa kaya sila kung bakit sila natanggal sa Pisobid?

    Lalong lalo na si papa888 pa as if na hindi nandadaya eh siya pa siguro ang gumawa ng group account na ito. TSK3x.

    Beware from these bidders:

    hush28
    papa888
    fortdan023
    huggieboi
    hunter357
    prettyhazel
    joycewin

    siguro mas marami pa. Kaya nag close ang BILIBID dahil sa mga swapang na mga taong ito.

  46. Izza says:

    Na try ko yung pisobid 2 days ago. And I actually bought the 100 bids = PHP 1,000.00, But I lost. The site is genuine kasi after I got the bid packs I received an OR with TIN. So, meaning registered sila. Pero I think this is more of a gamble. Online gambling na pinaganda lang yung name and yung prizes. Isipin mo, as what they advertised, you can buy expensive gadgets at 89 pesos. But in reality its not 89 pesos, 1 bid = 1 cent in bidding, and 1 bid is 10php if you will buy the bidpacks, so 1.00bid price = 1,000php na yun kung i c-compute mo yung monetary value. You will not realized it at first if you will just think of the prizes. And if you won, you will still need to pay. Sana libre na yung item kasi you spent on your bids na eh. Its just my opinion. Nasa inyo pa din yun if maeengganyo kayo sumali dito.

  47. joebidder says:

    One thing I noticed recently that bugged me is a bidder bid over 50 bids on a 50 bid pack. Who would do that except for someone that is just driving up the bids? Another thing I noticed is that this bid was never listed in the winners area. I think they should list the entire bid history for all auctions and they should always be listed in the winners area.

  48. Jon Robin says:

    Grabe ang kakapal ng mukha ng mga taong ito ah! Sila sila lang pala ang kumukuha ng mga prizes sa bilibid? Malaki ang nagastos ko doon ah! Tapos sila sila lang pala ang nananalo? Bakit hindi nakita ng mga taga bilibid ang nangyari na yun?

    Buti na lang agad na nakita ng taga Pisobid ang nangyari!

  49. bernie says:

    I want to join all auction site to win gadgets, but i have some personal comments base on my observation:

    a) Pisobid.com – 100% no robot bidder, fair site but outdated list of delivered items, July winners posted were April & May 2012 winners.

    b) Pinoytiangge & Happy2bid – few active bidders but some bidders are proven robots spending 5x the value of the auction , unbeleivable, and major items winners has no picture posted. since june 2012 no winners known as real bidder (tao) won the major auction. I will definitely not bid on this 2 websites (so many robotic bidders 98%)

    c) Panalo.ph – Closed , no active bidders since 8 out 10 bidders were robots. a definite scam auction site

    This is my personal observation and opinion, make your our review of their winners list and current auctions.

    • bernie says:

      check this out dude:

      • arnold says:

        I also observed that issue, to make it fair with Pisobid.com lets wait for comment of the chief admin. and let all bidders with undelivered items post their own comment out here.

        Calling all May, June, July & August 2012 Winners to post their comments here, specially big winners.

  50. Jay says:

    I won items May 2012, until now wala parin… paulit ulit lang sinasabi nila sa email… im sorry that I invested so much on this site…

  51. arnold says:

    Agree ako dito!!!! PISOBID.COM update your deliveries, it will be a waste and too late to recover if this issue will continue its publicity.

    You are still the no. 1 auction site , but who will join your your auction if super late or you are totally not delivering the items at all?

    Suggestion: If you don’t have fund try to sell your company, or your best auction software to other stable company or maybe look for a new investor.

    sayang naman…………..!

  52. arnold says:

    To: Mr. Paul Doh

    if as in if you have personal info or communication to pisobid admin or chief admin, i think you have to contact him now before its too late, since there are several blogs that pisobid.com are getting irresponsible with their obligation to deliver all the items won by the bidders.

    To: Chief Admin

    It seems you are planning to close your site? you don’t care about your loyal bidders. you are not making deliveries. i wonder why. You better stop your auction if you don’t have the plan to deliver the items. Have pity to all the people spending money to join your auction. TAO din kayo di ba? several bidders spent their very last blood money just to win your auction.

    PISOBID.COM SCAM OR NOT? you answer!

    “Constantly choosing the lesser of two evils is still choosing evil”

  53. lyza says:

    i am a new bidder of pisobid website, i won several items, the oldest is one month overdue, up to now i haven’t receive any of the items i won. however, they always replied on my email like this,

    “We really sorry for this matter.
    We cannot tell you the exact date when it will be shipped since it is still on process by our Logistics Team.
    Rest assured that you will be notified as soon as we’ve received feedback from our Logistics Team.”

    for now i am still confident that they will deliver and continue their reputable business.

    i don’t want to argue to any commentator, this is my personal opinion.
    maybe after one more week, i will come back here and post another negative message maybe.

  54. ac says:

    confirmed hinde na nag dedeliver ng gadgets pisobid.com sa mga winners nila, may mga nabasa ako mga comments sa FB nila, at ibang blog after a while erase agad nila. baka magsasarado na sila. sayang naman company nila and ganda pa naman ng software na gamit nila sa bidding kaya no. 1 sila, dati?

  55. john says:

    chief admin ng pisobid mag reply naman kayo dito mukang totoo mga obserbasyon sa inyo, wala na nga kayo updated pictures ng mga prizes na na deliver, at wala na din kayo masyado bidders, magpapasko na naman madami na mag bid ulit dapat maka recover na kayo perodapat pakita ninyo na seryoso pa kayo sa kompanya ninyo.

  56. Stinger says:

    I posted here yesterday but it seems it’s still under review. This is to confirm observations posted above that Pisobid has not been delivering gadgets to their winners for the past couple of months. I won a major gadget 2 months ago and till now no delivery has been made. I complied with their id requirement and same as above initially received an apologetic email that my win was “under process by the logistics department”. After that they have not even bothered to reply anymore to my following emails. I’m beginning to lose hope already. HELLO PISOBID CHIEF ADMIN! Can you address our concerns? Cat got your tongue? I’m not your detractor. All I wish is that PISOBID MAKES GOOD ON THEIR COMMITMENTS TO DELIVER TO THEIR WINNERS! Not just me but to all who have patronized and spent money to play in your site!

    Stinger

  57. john says:

    additional comment lang

    yung mga nag folow up ng delivery sa FB ng pisobid may nabasa din ako pero kinabukasan wala na erase agad nila. tama ba yun chief admin, halata naman eh kasi nakalagay minsa 4 comments tapos 2 lang nababasa, means naka hide yung ibang comments ng nag folow up ng delivery, TAMA B YUN, MAGPAKATOTOO DAPAT KAYO. PANDARAYA NA YAN DIBA? ONE SIDED FB ACCOUNT NYO MAGANDA LANG PINAKIKITA NINYO.

    UMAYOS KAYO HANNGAT MADAMI PA KAYO LOYAL BIDDERS.
    DAHIL ==== HULI MAN DAW AT MAGALING HULI NA DIN ANG LAHAT=== MAGLILIPATAN NA MGA BIDDERS NINYO

    CONGRATS SA NANALO KGB NG IPAD3 ‘KOKOMASLOKO’ NEXT YEAR CGURO OR HINDE MU NA MASILAYAN YANG ITEM
    MU!!! PAG WALA NA TALAGA PLANU MAG CONTINUE NG OPERASYON ANG PISOBID.

  59. me says:

    any body here who can help me what to do? a month ago they replied , now they don’t even answer my call and don’t relpy on all my emails. from April to July , i won seven auctions, they delivered only one.

  60. tenor says:

    nakakatakot pala mag register sa pisobid website, baka manalo ako hinde naman dumating ang item sayang pera at pagod, sa ibang site na lang ako na wala sa blog na ito.

    mag pray na lang kayo mga winners baka makuha sa dasal at makonsensya sila.

  61. ajames says:

    hinde na sumasagot yung chiefadmin ng pisobid dito mukang guilty sila, nakakatakot naman pala mag join sa pisobid, totoo na yata scam website sila, ka-awaawa naman mga subscriber and yung mga nanalo, na dengoy na yata.

    pa sa Diyos na lang yan tatamaan din mga kidlat at sumpa yan at magagalit si Robredo sa kanila, sana multuhin sila. just kidding

    and totoo mahirap kalaban sarili nilangkonsensya, malamang hirap na sila makatulog ngayon, unless mga professional scammer talaga mga may ari ng companya, so bad karma na lang para sa kanila.

    EVERYONE >>> JUST PRAY IT WORKS

  62. ultimate says:

    totoo b e2? buti na lang hinde pa ako nag register sa pisobid, sayang pala pera d2, saka na lang ako mag register pag updated na delivery nila.

  63. vincent says:

    Hello,

    I’ve won an item last 07/11/2012. Actually 2 items. Yung isa eh nadeliver naman pero yung 07/11/2012 eh until now wala pa. I’m still waiting for it and yung 2 new items na napanalunan ko. I’ve never had issues with Pisobid pero since 07/11/2012, dun nako nagkaissue. Sana eh mapadala pa yung mag binyaran at nagastos ko. May magagawa pa ba tayo dito, say, legally?

  64. arnold says:

    Pisobid.com The No. 1 na auction site Pisobid.com in the Philippines?
    Pisobid.com The No. 2 na auction site with No Delivery in the Philippnes
    Pisobid.com The No. 3 na candidate as scammer auction site in the World

    Mag 4 months na wala update ang pictures ng mga winners ?
    Magsarado na lang kayo

    Ang kakapal at titigas naman ng mukha ninyo mga operator!!!
    Try nyo lihahin lang muna, pag hinde pa kaya paki grinder na lang.

  65. BM says:

    SARADO NA PISOBID, WALANG AUCTION WALA NA FACEBOOK ACCOUNT????????

    AND SABI INVENTORY DAW EH WALANG NGA SILA DELIVERY 4 MONTHS NA ANU PA INVENTORY NILA?????? WAAAAAAH joke ba yun or kabobohan ng operators ng Pisobid.com

  66. silentregret says:

    Legit ang pisobid = OO
    Safe ang pisobid = ???

    Sinabi mismo ng Attorney ng Pisobid sa XXX kahapon (10/8/2012), na namanipulate yung bidding ng mga gadgets nila! kaya hindi natangap ng mga nanalong bidder yung mga items na napanalunan nila. So kung ikaw bidder mag bibid ka pa ba? Eh sila mismo umamin na kayang manipulahin ng ilang bidder ang bidding!

  67. marlon picarzo says:

    Just recently watched XXX of Channel 2 (www.pinoy-ako.info). You decide what is this website is all about. Obviously a fraud and dubious on-line trading. I even tried to register but difficult to enter. “Huwag no po kayong magpaloko at sasakit lang ulo niyo dito.” Just a thought….

  68. Demerok says:

    Tama ang hinala ko nung August na mag-sasara na ang Pisobid, dun sa mga nanalo at hinde naideliver ang mga items ipagpasa Diyos nyo nalang yan. Nga pala ang Pisobid ay connected sa Mobius.ph sure ako dyan. Sana mag sama-sama ang mga na-scam ng site na to at ireklamo sa NBI tapos Imbestigador. wala na ko tiwala sa mga bidding site puro sa una lang magagaling ang mga yan habang nagpapalakas palang.
