the Search Results and Listings pages only if those sellers specify

Additional services are Universal view (or hit) counter with number
and time date stats, Image and website hosting, tools to manage and
track all your auctions (ongoing, closed, bidding-on, and already-won
auctions) across multiple auction sites (currently, only Amazon and
eBay), bulk feedback posting, and an email correspondences service,
with fully customized email to notify your winning bidder about the

X.Com is changing their user agreement. The changes will take
effect on 21Apr 2000 for existing accounts. Some highlights -
*Don't send cash deposits. In the event the Bank receives cash
deposits, you agree that the Bank's determination of the amount of
the deposit will be conclusive.
*All check deposits must be payable to you. The Bank does not accept
third party checks.
*The Bank makes funds from certain electronic deposits available the
business day the Bank receives the deposit, but reserves the right to
delay the availability of funds from your cash and check deposits to
afford them time to verify the deposit and make sure the deposit is
collected. During the delay, you may not withdraw the funds in cash
and the Bank will not use the funds to pay checks you have written.
There is lots more information on deposits and fund availability
based on the types of deposits. This information is italicized for
easy viewing of the changes. If you have any questions, please
contact Customer Service at 888-447-8999, option 6.
