Havant, UK (PRWEB) August 16, 2006
While eBay dominates the global market as the on-line auction house for consumers & businesses alike and in providing on-line shops for SMEs, what do you do if you have say 161,199 pieces of Abrasive Discs that you need to clear. Well that was a problem recently confronting a Scottish based engineering company.
Listing those clearance products on their own web-site was not an acceptable solution simply because it would not have looked good with their customers and suppliers, that they had so much excess inventory
eBay was considered, but because of the costs that would have been incurred irrespective of whether or not a sale was achieved and uncertainty as to how long such bulk clearance items would need listing, this seller decided to list with a new and completely free-to-use bulk listing service http://www.ClearanceProduct.com designed and operated by UK based Web-Store Ltd, designers of custom ecommerce shops.
Web-Store Ltd founder Ian Jones came up with the idea for such a site several years ago when a computer company he then owned suffered large stock write downs, much of which eventually ended up as waste. It was only in '06 that he was able to find the time to put his idea into action.
Jones acknowledges that there are several other similar services in the market but he claims that http://www.ClearanceProduct.com is the only site to provide the service completely free of charge for both sellers and buyers alike. Furthermore prospective buyers have direct access to listed clearance products and sellers details, without having to register. Listings are only accepted from businesses and only for bulk clearance products and unlike eBay, there is no time limit as to how long products can be listed.
Where sellers prefer not to have their details published, enquiries are routed through to Web-Store Ltd who then pass them onto sellers.
A combination of good search engine optimization for each clearance product and a monthly spend with Google Adwords is ensuring that http://www.ClearanceProduct.com which only came on-line in June 06, is receiving a steady growth in site visits from around the world.
When questioned as to how Web-Store Ltd could afford to offer their service for free, Jones said that it was a great way in showing off what Web-Store Ltd could do with their budget priced ecommerce designs and that the site was becoming a good source of sales leads for their ecommerce design services.
