ThankYa.com, a start-up based in Binghamton, New York introduced a new service on Thanksgiving Day allowing eBay buyers and sellers to send free "ThankYa Cards" following their successful transactions. In addition to promoting goodwill among eBay buyers and sellers, sending ThankYa Cards can lead to repeat business between the two parties. Embedded in the ThankYa Cards are links to the sender's other items for sale on eBay.
ThankYa.com founder and CEO, Michael Atchie, 36, developed the idea for post-transaction electronic thank you cards two years ago after purchasing a new car and receiving a thank you card in the mail from the dealership.
"I felt e- thank you cards would be an ideal way for online buyers and sellers to show appreciation for a smooth transaction," stated Atchie, who frequently buys and sells items on eBay.
ThankYa Cards are similar to other electronic greeting cards which generate an email notification to the recipient with a link to a web page showing the card image. While e-cards have been an internet staple for years, Atchie believes ThankYa.com is the first card service to promote repeat business between online buyers and sellers by using the card to show links to items they have for sale.
Following a transaction, eBay users can visit the ThankYa.com web site and choose from a variety of cards to send to the other party. Senders can include a personal message and provide their eBay username, which triggers the ThankYa Card to display the links to their other items for sale. When the card is opened, the recipient will see the card, the personal message and the eBay links.
ThankYa.com has implemented tools to prevent their e-cards from being used as spam, including a limit on the number of cards a sender can submit at one time and an integrated spam blocker. ThankYa.com officials believe ThankYa Cards will become an integral part of buying and selling on the eBay marketplace.
