Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) May 24, 2006
Peerflix (http://www.peerflix.com)], the leading peer-to-peer (P2P) network that allows members to legally trade DVDs online, today announced the emergence of a significant group of online DVD traders who have received more than 1,000 DVDs through its service. Peerflix, which has labeled these individuals “Super Traders,” sees the increase as a sign that consumers are highly interested in new ways to get DVDs, and that cost plays a significant role in their choice of consumption models.
Jay Woodland of Bradenton, FL, is representative of this class of “Super Traders.” Woodland became a member of Peerflix in 2004 and has been trading heavily since then. This Spring, he received his 1000th DVD through the Peerflix network. While Woodland enjoys many aspects of the Peerflix service, he finds one feature paramount. "One of the most important parts of belonging to Peerflix is the Peerflix Guarantee. You are never at risk,” explained Woodland. When comparing Peerflix to online DVD rental companies Netflix and Blockbuster online, Woodland reiterated his confidence in the Peerflix guarantee, “Peerflix stands behind the trades both ways, the one's you get and the one's you send. No one else can offer such superb service."
Super Traders like Woodland, who usually has more than 2600 DVDs in his personal collection at any one time, represent an elite group within Peerflix of avid DVD viewers whose DVD collections are vast, eclectic, and especially dynamic.
Paul Gutierrez, director of operations at Peerflix, sees the increase in the number of Super Traders in the Peerflix network as a sign of its efficiency. “It’s fantastic to see people appreciating the ease and convenience of Peerflix’s trading system to such high levels. In every one of these trades, there was another happy user on the other end of that transaction, so we really see a snowball effect in trading and customer satisfaction as the network increases.”
The Peerflix system allows users to trade used DVDs across a large, distributed network, keeping their DVD collections dynamic and fresh. Peerflix itself carries no inventory and does not participate in the transaction; it simply matches people and products while optimizing for trade speed, frequency, and geography. The company transfers its low overhead directly to customers by only charging $0.99 for each trade facilitated by its system. Since its 2004 launch, Peerflix has been steadily building its customer base and site inventory and today is the leading online destination for DVD owners to trade their DVDs online.
