Norwalk, CT – BidBeacon.com has launched new no-cost set of benefits for North American business specializing in a wide range of activities at www.BidBeacon.com. Free benefits are being extended to those conducting Estate sales, Tag sales, Garage sales, Yard sales, Antique shops, and Consignment shops.
The company has developed a special platform featuring online auctions which favor the above-mentioned businesses and proposes some exclusive benefits for sale organizers who may add this platform to their business model without changing their traditional one .
One of the biggest problems for online auctions is buyers do not always get just what they see in the photos. Other problems are often related to shipping efforts and costs. Conversely, the buyers of traditional brick-and-mortar businesses or
estate/tag/garage/yard sales always get what they see but miss the opportunity to view and touch their items of interest before visiting the actual sale. ( www.bidbeacon.com/AuctGoods/GarageSale/EstateSales.aspx
Gene Glass, president of BidBeacon.com, says: "I think our new platform is useful for millions of American buyers and sellers at a vast online marketplace. We've just provided a solution to the outlined problems by organizing so-called "online local malls" all over the country. Sales professionals can list their most interesting items free. Local buyers (up to 100 miles from the actual point of sale) can view details of their listed goods online, ask questions and get answers, bid on these items online, see the other bidders' activity and change their own bids.
Now, lots of people may have access to many more items than when visiting any separate sale at online auction or while visiting any separate antique or consignment shop. Even if sales professionals already have their own online or offline auction, we simply suggest to them one more convenient free marketplace to advertise and promote their goods to all local buyers."
During the bidding stage it is up to sellers to select the winning bids any moment or to change them. As well the sellers may select the date to close the deal during a face-to face meeting with the selected bidder. For estate/garage sale organizers it may be the actual sale date or the date after it. At these meetings the goods change hands. This arrangement eliminates potential problems involving the features and quality of goods, shipping and cost, and payment convenience.
Toly Sarser, Bidbeacon.com CEO says in conclusion: "I hope our new platform may help increase audience and earnings for sale organizers all over the country. I think providing more information to buyers makes the trading process more interesting and attractive for both sides."
