OnlineAuction.com is the bigger marketplace with the small town “Mayberry” feel. Because of their marketing tools and excellent customer service they just won the Silver Award from TopTenReviews.com. They strive to bring buyers and sellers together to conduct business in an affordable way. It's simple! Sellers using OLA are more successful due to low selling fees and larger user base. Small business owners and non-profit organizations have used OLA to raise money for their organizations. It certainly beats a rummage sale!
“An auction that has two or more competitive bidders can make all the difference,” says Valerie Fain, co-founder of OnlineAuction.com. OLA has a feature known as Quick Bid which works like a live auction which allows two or more bidders to continue bidding on an item by extending the auction time until the highest bid is reached and active bidding has ceased. Thanks to this feature, the Auburn Southwest Raptor Center ended their charity auction with a final bid on one item of $12,600! “This charity auction would not have been extended if not for OLA's Quick Bid feature,” says Fain, “They called telling us just how pleased they were having used OnlineAuction.com to conduct their sale!”
The folks at OLA feel really blessed by their users who are extremely supportive and every day they give valuable input for adjustments and fixes. OLA relies on member's perspectives to make the website a better marketplace. Buyers and sellers using OLA stay involved, therefore, they run the user chat room. On any given day you will find OnlineAuction.com has a huge variety of interesting items. Some sellers buy and sell estates. Anna Dray, an OLA user from New York, sold some old antique beads for $20 through her OLA marketplace. The beads ended up being worth thousands. Anna received buyer-feedback that made her cry with joy ||or cry with happy tears||*. The buyer relayed to Anna through the feedback about a great second honeymoon, an improvement in her marriage, and how it was all because of Anna selling some old beads! Fain says, “You find this kind of camaraderie a lot on our site. We encourage users to help other users because building a website with happy customers is our goal.”
Every day on OLA you can find what the industry refers to as ’sleepers’. 'Sleepers' are items that may have been stored for years in the attic or garage. This is only part of what makes OnlineAuction.com so different. OLA is simple to use so economical buyers and sellers reap the benefits. Fain says, “Everybody's looking for treasures; fortunately for us, that's what brings bidders.”
