TAMPA, Fla. (PRWEB) July 22, 2005
Tway.com, an internet auction site that offers a number of benefits not offered by EBay, is working on one more Â a low-cost insurance program that would protect buyers from loss.
TWay.com officials say that auction buyers' biggest fear about online transactions is fraud -- either not getting what they paid for, or receiving items that turn out to be disappointing or not as represented. TWayÂs insurance program would protect buyers from those kinds of disappointments.
"What we are developing is an insurance program that would be very low-cost and simple," said Dean Burnetti, TWay.comÂs president. "Buyers could click a box at the beginning of a transaction, and could then specify the amount of insurance requested. If the transaction failed for any reason, or if the items received were not as represented, the buyers could make a claim through a simple on-line process."
The insurance program would be one more customer service advantage of TWay.com over EBay, Burnetti said. Many EBay buyers and sellers complain about EBayÂs level of customer service and support when transactions do not complete successfully.
"When we first conceived TWay.com, we realized that its success would depend in large part on TWay.comÂs ability to stand by both buyers and sellers throughout the transaction process," Burnetti said. "We think this insurance program will be a major step in making TWay.com the customer service leader among online auction sites."
TWay.com has already attracted significant attention because it does not charge listing fees, and it has commission rates that are significantly lower than EBayÂs. Burnetti said buyers and sellers are very responsive to alternatives that offer better service, more competitive rates, new innovations and a more significant fun factor.
Burnetti said The TWay.com insurance program should be ready for market trials later this year.
