Auction - Buy Now - Make Offers!!
There is a fast growing trend in the Auction Marketing and Auction World offering a good mix of features like "Buying Outright" & "Making an Offer" rather than participating in a "Traditional Auction Bidding Process" within a Live or On-Line Auction.
True Historical Auction Methods and competitive bidding are not disappearing, simply, we are seeing an addition of options for a potential Buyer ready to make an immediate purchase.
Buyers seem to be motivated to make a quick offer or simply "Buy the Item" and Sellers in many cases are ready to sell and willing to consider and accept a reasonable quick return on selling their items.
There are advantages and disadvantages to both buyer and seller in all cases and certainly to the Auction Company or provider of the process to help advise and/or choose the most reasonable option.
More and more folks are finding life to be extremely busy and are very comfortable with doing their shopping on line at any hour of the day.
Quick, Ship, Done!
Mobile technology provides instantaneous bidding or outright buying at any time of the day and for the most part anywhere in the world.
Timed bidding works very well, however, in many cases, the buyer going forward wants immediate control of the buying process and the product ready for pick up and/or delivery.
