Boulder, Colo. (PRWEB) February 6, 2009
Bidboxr® Auctions announced today that it is formally open for business. With a web address at http://bidboxr.com, Bidboxr is an online auction and shopping website in which both consumers and businesses can buy and sell goods and services worldwide.
What makes Bidboxr Auctions unique is the use of web 2.0 interactive advertising technology that helps sellers reach more bidders and provides online entrepreneurs with a profitable source of revenue. Bidboxr's interactive ad banners are content responsive to attract bidders to websites that offer related biddable items. Website owners who want to earn revenue by offering biddable content can simply add a few lines of code on their websites.
Troy Yohn and Steve Webb are the co-founders of Bidboxr® Auctions.
For bidders, Bidboxr Auctions provides an alluring fast pace auction. Once the first bid is placed, a 3-hour bid clock starts. When the 3-hour bid clock runs down the auction is closed and the item is sold to the highest bidder. Troy Yohn says that "to avoid the unpopular eBay "sniping" problem, every time a bid is placed, 3 more minutes are added to our bid clock to allow for additional last-minute bids. This more closely mimics the classic auction format that you'd find at a traditional live auction."
"Consumers will benefit from Bidboxr's leading technology and service to provide them with a great online auction experience," said Steve Webb. "And website owners can participate by simply running a banner on their website, we do the rest." A Bidboxr auction ad banner that is tied to the content of a webpage not only earns web participants money but also lets their users enjoy the excitement of an auction.
"It's like Google's adwords/adsense model, but we're using interactive auctions instead of static ads. The auction ads are interactive, dynamic and compelling," Steve says. The auctions are relevant to the content of the page, so it's designed to draw users who are interested in that particular content. "Imagine reading a blog post about a digital camera and looking at an ad on the side of the page showing an image of the exact same camera on sale and closing in 10 minutes for $50 with a big 'BID NOW' button beneath it", Steve added.
Bidboxr fees are less than eBay and sellers decide which payments options (Visa, Mastercard, PayPal, Google Check Out, Personal Checks, COD) their buyers can choose from.
BidBoxr.com has already had numerous auctions listed before they officially opened their doors for business. Steve says, "People just seemed to find us and started to list items even before the site was finished and there has been an incredibly positive response from sellers so-far. People are really anxiously looking for the next big thing in online auctions and seem to really like our direction."
All new users who sign up during the month of February will receive a credit for 5 free auction listings.
