vzaar is thrilled to be a launch partner for the Selling Manager Applications programme. This release has been a year in the making but during that time a record number of online buyers are now relying on video as part of their decision making process.
London, UK (PRWEB) August 17, 2009
Online video hosting service vzaar.com today announces the release of their official eBay feature for the new Selling Manager Applications directory and available from My eBay to hundreds of thousands of current subscribers to eBay's Selling Manager tool.
The first approved Selling Manager application featuring video, the vzaar application allows eBay sellers to quickly and easily add video to their eBay listings for a more dynamic shopping experience. In a matter of seconds a seller subscribed to Selling Manager can now shoot a product video, upload that video to their vzaar application in My eBay and insert it into any live or scheduled eBay listing.
Founded by two former eBay UK employees in 2007, vzaar has focused on making it as simple as possible for eBay sellers to improve the quality and look of their listings. In 2008, the company won the runner-up award for Best Design at the eBay Developers Conference, and in July 2009, vzaar made a number of its new features available to its users that includes High Definition (HD) video and Customisable Video Players.
The standard vzaar application is available free to all Selling Manager and Selling Manager Pro users on eBay.com. In addition, there are a premium set of application packages available that offer advanced features such as bulk listings of video and unbranded video players.
Jamie Parkins, COO at vzaar and former Manager of the UK PowerSeller Programme says, "vzaar is thrilled to be a launch partner for the Selling Manager Applications programme. This release has been a year in the making but during that time a record number of online buyers are now relying on video as part of their decision making process."
He adds, "As eBay sellers ourselves we appreciate how much time and energy goes into making a listing just right. We are, therefore, delighted that US sellers will now be able to easily add video to their listings from the comfort of the eBay platform and improve their sales with the minimum of effort."
At present, vzaar powers over 50,000 eBay video listings a month providing a more in-depth look for a variety of products such as motor cars, boats, bicycles, heavy duty industrial equipment, diamond rings, electrical toys and vintage clocks.
Diamond seller, Steven Grunhut, Managing Director of eBay account bestprices_ms told vzaar that within four months of adding video to his listings his sales had increased by 65%.
"Diamonds are very complex and very subjective and a description does not really give you the full picture especially with lower clarity diamonds. Our videos have enabled our customer to detect were the inclusions are situated, how good the brilliance is, and to see if the ring has a nice finish."
vzaar, founded in 2007, offers a premium online video hosting service for ecommerce websites and eBay sellers.
