MA, (PRWEB) October 17, 2004
TradeZor.com (http://www.tradezor.com), a new website aimed at the trading of collectables online, has opened its public doors. This online trading venue provides its users with a safe environment to trade collectable cards, figures, comics, and any other tradable product online at no charge and with quick and efficient ease. It was originally created to combat existing Âtrading forumsÂ which can be insecure and inefficient and now hopes to help collectors from all over the world trade with one another on a global network.
Currently, the Web site is hosting hundreds of item listings, and users from countless countries who browse the TradeZor everyday for items that they would be interested in trading for. Website owner Brian Muse claims that the website is still in its creative phase, trying to come up with new features daily to offer its users to enhance their experience.
ÂThere are a lot of forums out there on the internet now, where people post their personal lists of collectables that they want and have, and then wait for people to contact them with offers. This system, however, has its security holes due to the fact that these open forums have no rules telling users that they canÂt rip other users off. Basically, the Magic: the Gathering community, as well as the Yu-Gi-Oh! community and other gaming platforms need an organized safe service like TradeZor to get the real results they want.Â
The concept of the site is simple enough. Once signed up, a user can start listing his or her items, ranging from cards, figures, comics, DVDs, or video games. For each item added, there are specific information that a user can supply, including condition, quantity, description, category, and more. Any user signed into the website can also make offers for items that theyÂre interested in, and once an offer is accepted, contact information and mailing addresses are exchanged between the users automatically by TradeZor. Each user is allowed to leave a feedback score from one to 1000 every time they make a trade to tell other users whether or not this person is an honest user of the site.
Other enhancements include live stats of how many people view items and offer for them, optional email notification that tell a user when events happen that are specific to his or her account, a messaging system for easy communication, and enhanced search/browsing techniques.
The targeted audience for such a website is gamers who participate in collectable card games and online games such as Diablo II where users can trade items. The audience is likely, however, to grow beyond these few games to encompass all possible angles of trading. Eventually, TradeZor is hoping to be an equal alternate to eBay for anyone who doesnÂt want to spend money on something they need or could use.
