Auction challenges:
- Balancing engagement and conversion with ease of use and retention -> Engagement via live auctions all in one list
- At-a-glance useful vs. information overload -> Bid rate is higher with less information but sometimes pay rate is compromised
- Gamification without dark patterns
Catalog challenges:
- Serendipitous discovery vs. utilitarian search
- Gauge interest & set auction reminders vs. transact
- Pricing that doesn’t cannibalize / compete with auctions
- Explaining heart icons (setting auctions reminders)
