As reported on GBSTAMPS

http://www.gbstamp.co.uk/article/former-bidstart-owner-and-stanley-gibbons-director-launches-hipstamp.com-612.html

A new philatelic marketplace website has launched - www.HipStamp.com - as an alternative to eBay. Run by the former Bidstart CEO and SG Director Mark Rosenberg, there's already plenty of sellers and listings to take a look at. But will HipStamp succeed? can it prove to be a genuine alternative to the gorilla that is eBay?

I have signed up just to see what this site can do for me, NOW all I have to do is load up 2000 lots in the free shop they have allocated me.

Watch this space!!

I received an email from them - to the same email address that I had registered under Bidstart, with a a personal "Hi Dave" so I am assuming he took a customer list with him.

I have signed up but as I was away this previous week on a Golf tour I haven't had a chance to assess it just yet.

I quite liked Bidstart prior to SG's involvement so I will haver look around next week sometime.

Well this did not last long.

This notice has been on the Hipstamp website for over a week.

Due to a current legal motion from Stanley Gibbons, the purchase and sale of items has been temporarily disabled for this week. Please rest assured that your data is safe, and we are doing everything in our power to resolve this issue. During this time, no credit cards and/or store subscription fees will be charged. We’ll provide an update as soon as possible. We apologize for any inconvenience.
