Proxibid Introduces Instant Purchase Capabilities for Timed Auctions
OMAHA, Neb. --(Business Wire)--
the world's largest, most trusted online auction marketplace for buying
and selling specialized assets, today introduced "Instant Purchase"
capabilities for timed auctions. This new feature provides auction
company partners with the ability to post items for sale in timed
auctions and to offer an "Instant Purchase" price, enabling bidders to
enjoy instant gratification as they forego the budding process.
"Proxibid has consistently been a leader in developing technology for
the auction industry. Today's announcement provides another tool that I
am able to present to sellers that enhances the flexibility and the
marketability of my service," said Peter Gehres, Auctioneer and
President of Belhorn Auctions. "Proxibid's Instant Purchase feature is
an exciting marketing tool that will allow my firm to approach sellers
with more options. This is a win-win-win for auctioneers, sellers, and
Proxibid's "Instant Purchase" serves as a supplemental sales tool,
further enabling auction companies to secure new consignments. Auction
companies now have the ability to "set it and forget it" and allow
bidders to choose the purchase method that best fits their needs. For
biddes, "Instant Purchase" provides the added convenience of purchasing
an item immediately without having to wait for the auction to close.
"Auction companies and bidders have been requesting this feature and we
are thrilled to be able to deliver," said Jason Nielsen, Vice President
of Risk, Payments and Product for Proxibid. "Instant Purchase will
dramatically change the way buyers interact in our marketplace and which
we believe will lead to increased sales for our auction company partners
who choose to take advantage of this new feature."
"Instant Purchase" is an optional feature available to all auction
companies that utilize Proxibid's timed auction solution, and is
available beginning today.
