List Sell Trade chokes out of the starting blocks
List Sell Trade brought its launch forward to this week to match online auction site Wheedle (which crashed and burned on just its second day) but has already stalled due to an "overwhelming response".

listselltrade stallsList Sell Trade brought its launch forward to this week to match online auction site Wheedle (which crashed and burned on just its second day) but has already stalled due to an "overwhelming response".

It's now planning for a full launch on October 8 and is advising users with current auctions active to edit the closing times of their listings.

The site went live yesterday afternoon to start with, boasting a $10 all-you-can list monthly subscription with no success fee.

But like Wheedle, List Sell Trade experienced registration and account issues, as well as security hole, and was forced to back down.
