Taking On Ebay: A Technology Auction Site Breaks New Ground

Share Article

Since 2004, DAL (http://www.d-a-l.com) has been the site computer techs and novices have turned to for free pc help. In the last month, their services have expanded to include an on-line auction section for technology goods such as Intel processors, hard drives, motherboards, complete PC systems, laptops and even mobile phones. But what separates the auctions at DAL from its competitors is it’s absolutely free to list and sell items from anywhere in the world.

With many on-line auction sites, sellers have to pay an upfront fee or a fee once an item is sold. With DAL’s on-line auctions that is not the case. As owner David Leppard explains, “We wanted to create an auction experience unlike any other on the Internet. For years we’ve offered free PC support to anyone who needs it thanks to advertisers and sponsors. We’ve simply decided to extend that concept to include an on-line auction with sensational results. In the last month alone we’ve had over a quarter of a million unique visitors to our site as the auction side continues to grow.”

Although DAL, as with other auction sites, can’t claim responsibility for items offered by sellers there is a benefit to using DAL’s auction services not found at other on-line auction – knowledge. Most of the people who list products (and shop for them) are more knowledgeable about the technical products being sold.

“When I’ve visited other auction sites in the technology category much of the information provided by listers is either vague or inaccurate,” says Leppard. He explains how many sellers at these other sites seem unknowledgeable about what they are selling. But at DAL auctions, since many of the people who frequent the site are PC users with more than basic knowledge, you’ll find listings that are more accurately described. In other words, buyers have a greater chance of getting what is offered and not what the seller assumes is correct.

DAL is based in England but the geographic location of users consist of 40% from the US, 25% from the UK with the remaining percentages coming from Canada, Australia, Europe, India. As Leppard states, “Simply put, DAL auctions is essentially a ‘world marketplace’ for both buyers and sellers of almost any kind of computing equipment and accessories.”
