San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 17, 2012
Ubokia, Inc. (http://www.ubokia.com), a rapidly growing startup in the San Francisco Bay Area, today announced the availability of uMatch, which makes it possible to instantaneously match sellers with qualified buyers. Ubokia’s Want-based model, in which buyers post what they want to buy and sellers respond, has already found widespread adoption among users of traditional ecommerce sites, including Craigslist and eBay. Membership growth has been remarkable since launching last year, quintupling in the last month alone.
Ex-eBay Vice President David Pride believes, “Ubokia's uMatch has the potential to be the biggest ecommerce advancement in the last ten years.”
The release of uMatch enables sellers to instantly connect with qualified buyers. Sellers can also easily update their available merchandise based on changing real-time demand as buyers post new wants.
Ubokia CEO Mark Pine says, "Many of our members have come from eBay and Craigslist, because they like the idea of posting what they want and having sellers respond. uMatch will make it much easier for sellers to connect with qualified buyers, and vice versa. Initial feedback from our members has been extremely positive. uMatch is something that everyone needs to check out."
Consumers seeking greater control over their own online buying experience will find Ubokia’s model very appealing. According to the 2011 Social Shopping Study, a survey of over 1,000 consumers about shopping online, the trend toward consumer empowerment in ecommerce will only accelerate in 2012.
