TAMPA, FL (PRWEB) February 6, 2006 -–
TWay, a customer-focused online auction site, is now a better value than ever before when compared to the online auction giants, TWay President Dean Burnetti announced today.
The reason: EBay’s recent announcement that it would increase fees for higher-priced items, effective Feb. 22. TWay plans no such increase in its fee structure, Burnetti said.
“TWay has always represented a better value than such industry giants as EBay,” Burnetti said. “But EBay’s recent announcement of high fees for bigger-ticket items puts even more space between EBay’s fees and ours. It means that TWay represents a better value than ever before.”
EBay recently announced that it would increase its transaction fees for items costing more than $25, Burnetti said. That can mean an increase of $.06 for a $50 item, or a $2.44 increase for a $1,500 item.
“That increase may not seem like much, but it can be significant for sellers who sell more than a single item at a time,” Burnetti said. “For example, a seller who wants to sell 100 items costing $1,500 each will have to absorb an increase of $244 in new EBay fees.”
What adds insult to injury, Burnetti said, is that EBay also charges its sellers additional listing fees. TWay does not now, and never has, charged listing fees of any kind.
TWay’s fees closely parallel EBay’s old rates, and without the additional listing fees, Burnetti said.
Burnetti said TWay invests its profits in better service and more features which offer additional benefits to TWay users. Last month, TWay announced a complete overhaul of its website. It now offers such new features as customer forums, a new color scheme, and a split-view approach, with half the page devoted to auctions and the other half devoted to TWay “stores.”
