San Francisco-based pricelookup.com has just completed the public launch of its new free classified ads website, allowing users to sell items ranging from cars to real estate. Rather than just acting as a passive advert display tool, pricelookup.com enables buyers to discuss items with sellers and then make their purchase through the website’s own interface. Designed from the start to present a familiar and modern interface to users, pricelookup.com is the result of two years’ development and testing and offers a transparency and directness not normally associated with classified advertising. Now in its second month of live operation, pricelookup.com already has over $5 million worth of goods listed and receives over 10,000 visitors per month.
Company founder Phil Chiu has over 10 years experience in the IT industry and believes that there is a market for such a website. “Traditional classified advertising sites are usually unnecessarily complex, have limited functionality, and often have fees,” he said, “pricelookup.com aims to remove these barriers and offer a free and complete experience for people seeking to use a classified advert service.” Currently available in both English and Chinese versions, pricelookup.com aims to connect buyers and sellers directly wherever possible, and provides secure payment facilities and private messaging between users to encourage this.
Chiu is keen to emphasise that unlike many classified advertising sites, adverts are not limited to goods for sale. Jobs, services and real estate are also catered for, and all listings can be accessed either through the search facility or by browsing through categories for different item types. Over the coming months the site will be adding new features to further enhance the existing services. The site has been designed to allow rapid expansion, and pricelookup.com’s growth since release is proving the value of their investment in a high quality, flexible design.
Visitors to the site are able to place items for sale with no fees or registration process required and pricelookup.com is integrated with Paypal to provide a secure and instant payment facility when an item is sold.
pricelookup.com has been launched to offer the next generation of classified advertising services to internet users. Free and simple to use, it enable buyers to purchase goods directly from advert listings using secure payment facilities. In less than two months of operation, over $5 million of items have so far been listed, attracting over 10,000 visitors per month.
