bidorbuy Sells from Weird and Wonderful to Fun and Exciting

(7 October 2005) Life can sometimes be very predictable. When you walk into a retail outlet, you have a fairly good idea of what you can expect to see on the shelves. When dining at your favourite restaurant, you normally know what the menu is like and, more often than not, you also know what your favourite dish will look and taste like.

However, at bidorbuy, life is not predictable at all. When visiting the site, you will quickly notice that it is not your average run of the mill online marketplace. The varieties of products and/or services that are sold on the site are nothing short of extraordinary and, says managing director at bidorbuy, Andy Higgins; "People visit, buy and sell on bidorbuy because of the variety of items available on the site. We have had some very exciting products listed - and sold - over the past few years.'

"The programme essentially gives monetary incentives to our members if they refer users who register on our site and place a bid within 30 days of registration. Additionally, people who sign-up to utilise our site will automatically get a voucher that can be used towards their next purchase on our site," adds Higgins.
