I was constantly buried in e-mails from buyers who wanted to make an offer for less than my posted price on items that I had listed on eBay. This new selling tool automates the process by allowing the buyer to deal through a friendly negotiator who responds to every offer. Now my e-mail problem is solved, my buyers are happy and I'm selling more products faster.

    Deal4it.com is a new online shopping site that allows users to search from millions of different items, and get a really great deal. What makes this shopping site unique is that it uses the RIV technology to entertain and engage shoppers. Hundreds of different videos have been produced by professional actors. These short videos are played automatically depending on what the shopper is doing at that moment. The interactive videos allow a shopper to "deal" for a really great price in a very "human like" way.

Through their participation in the eBay Developers Program, deal4it.com built an application that pulls up-to-date listing information from eBay.com and helps eBay sellers showcase their merchandise. eBay sellers can come to the deal4it.com site and register to receive code that can be easily added to their eBay listing page. This will then allow the actors to show up on their eBay listings. Once the code has been added to their eBay listing, the item will be showcased on the deal4it.com website. eBay Sellers are now able to increase their sales by making the sales process more fun and engaging on eBay, and they get additional exposure outside of eBay.

Shoppers that view any eBay item that has the eBay "Best Offer" option are able to instantly know if their offer has been accepted. Once an offer has been entered, immediately a pre-recorded video plays in a fun and engaging way designed to counter-offer what has been submitted by the buyer if the offer was not acceptable. Using the eBay Best Offer system and the RIV technology together, the eBay Best Offer process is automated. Once an acceptable offer has been made, or a counter-offer has been accepted, the professional on-screen actor walks the buyer through the rest of the process.

A second tool has been certified as an eBay Compatible Application. The RIV technology is also being used to showcase eBay listings off eBay.com through a deal4it.com RIV widget. Widgets are small applications that can be added easily to any website, blog or personal social networking page. The RIV widget allows a site visitor to search the millions of different eBay listings in order to place a bid, to use the eBay "Buy It Now" feature, or to engage in the Best Offer process right within the widget. eBay sellers, as well as site owners who are looking to monetize their site traffic as an affiliate publisher, can visit http://deal4it.com/affiliate to sign-up and select a widget that best fits their website.

Deal4it Technologies is beginning to work with several other major online retailers. The RIV technology can be added to any website to automate the process of offering great deals. In addition to enhancing and automating the selling process, the new RIV technology can be used in a host of other applications.
