Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 18, 2006
ACollegeTrade.com today announced that they have launched their auction web site designed specifically for college students. ACollegeTrade.com caters to over 3,000 college campuses throughout the nation. In addition, the site offers customized sub- pages for students from over sixty major universities including the University of Texas, Florida State University, UCLA, Baylor University, University of Notre Dame, University of Michigan, Yale University, and many others.
The site is free to use and offers multiple features that give students increased flexibility and control over their auctions including “Buy Now” functionality, enhanced feedback system and ratings, absentee bidding, automatic email alerts, and enhanced search capability. Because the site content can be localized by university, students can arrange to make exchanges in person, thereby eliminating the hassle and cost of shipping items.
“College students and their parents will be able to recoup some of the expense of buying textbooks as well as being able to buy and sell other items such as electronics, furniture, DVDs, and more,” said Parrish Moore, CEO of ACollegeTrade.com. “We’ve used our experiences as students to develop a site that is designed with students’ needs in mind.”
With the launch of the site, ACollegeTrade.com is actively pursuing funding in order to expand marketing and outreach efforts.
