Kingston, NY (PRWEB) March 16, 2010
Online auction service WebAuctionFinder.com (http://www.webauctionfinder.com) recently launched, providing sellers and shoppers an easy-to-use alternative to confusing and cluttered large auctions sites such as eBay. For a limited time as part of the introduction, WebAuctionFinder.com is offering free listings to sellers with no auction fees.
The launch comes as many businesses are trying to reduce costs, while shoppers are looking for alternatives to big spending. In the rush to post auction items, many sellers automatically choose one of the large, established online auction sites thinking this will guarantee the highest profit, without considering the hidden costs involved. Some blindly select all of the advertising enhancements in the hopes that it will bring a higher selling price. Other sellers try to educate themselves on all of the fees, attempting to figure out which features would be most advantageous to use.
However, even with all of the research and cost cutting measures used by sellers, the listing fees from a large auction site can reach as high as $50 per item. WebAuctionFinder.com offers sellers a low-cost alternative with no hidden fees: free auction listings for all items selling under $10, and just $1 for products which sell for $10 or more.
“As the owner of WebAuctionFinder.com, I believe it’s your auction, so why not run it your way. After all, it’s your item that’s up for auction, you're the auctioneer and it’s you who stands to either realize a profit or take a loss. Personally, I don't feel free to run my own auction on other sites when I have to constantly worry about the hidden cost. The result, my customers don't get the best product description on other auction sites. Your customers will appreciate the greater customer focus that this auction site allows you to give them,” says WebAuctionFinder.com founder Jerry McGahan.
Additionally, WebAuctionFinder.com offers seller-to-seller assistance for users looking to navigate the difficulties of creating a clear, eye catching auction listing. With confusing tools and features offered by other large online auctions, many sellers create unhelpful product descriptions, leaving potential buyers with unanswered questions, often resulting in a lost sale.
Example of a typical listing found on a large, well-known online auction site:
The iPod Touch includes LCD protector, 1 1/2'' long by 1' wide, one-year warranty
WebAuctionFinder.com sellers actually help each other create better descriptions for their auctions, resulting in increased bidding and sales. A better description allows sellers to develop a trusted relationship with their buyers, reducing returned inventory. With detailed and helpful descriptions, customers will know exactly what they are purchasing before they place a bid.
Example of webauctionfinder.com auction listing:
The iPod Touch:
- Protects the iPod Touch front LCD screen against dust and scratches
- Eliminates glare and reduces eye strain
- Is designed for perfect fit with the LCD screen
- Slips easily into pockets for use on-the-go
Additional features offered at no additional cost to the seller include attention grabbing bold titles, page view counters, embedded store graphics and product photos, and featured auction listings in categories. The site also encourages sellers to link outside classified advertising to their auctions to increase sales.
“This site is a novel idea,” says one happy user. “I was a bit skeptical when I signed up. I mean, after all, is my competition really going to help me sell? And to my amazement the answer is yes! I learned they have to if they want the auction fee to remain as low it is. And in fact even the site owner reviews auction advertisements and actively solicities suggestions from other members if you feel shy asking for advertisement suggestions. With their help I sold a set of expensive car speakers for nearly what I paid at a brick and mortar retail store.”
