I cant create account because of RECAPTCHA!
If this happens on the GOOGABOX site it will happen on other sites as well where you try to create an account. This happens because you get a message that says: "RECAPTCHA code incorrect". The reason is most likely because you can not SEE the RECAPTCHA CODE. Most likely you are using IE and if you are, you should go to INTERNET OPTIONS which is located under the TOOLS ICON on the top right hand side of your browser. Once in the INTERNET OPTIONS BOX simply click on ADVANCED OPTIONS then click "Restore Advance Settings" as well as the "RESET" button underneath it. Make sure you click "APPLY" at the bottom before closing the box. Now try again to create your account. You should see the RECAPTCHA CODE. Make sure you enter the code correctly.

Creating a listing
Do take note that items listed in your STORE also have the "BIDDING" feature, as well as the "BUY NOW" and "MAKE OFFER" feature.
