I am not the most technologically oriented person but listing the shipment was a little involved. That was not too bad but when it came to completing the listing I was instructed that an e-mail would be sent in a few minutes. If it didn't arrive in a few minutes then I should click on link and I could complete my listing from the on-line page. I waited for about an hour for the e-mail and it didn't come through so I went ahead and clicked on the indicated link to complete my listing. I completed my listing with no problems. Then the e-mail came through and I decided to look at it. In the process I realized that there were a couple of things that I thought I should change so I did. I ended up with two virtually identical listings with no way to tell them apart because they were both the same date and exactly the same time. I didn't realize the duplication until I kept getting bids and questions even though I had accepted a bid for my shipment. A reference number for each listing would perhaps be helpful although I realize that the mistake was mine in the first place. I should have waited longer for the e-mail. Overall though I was happy with the experience.
