More Time for bidorbuyers to Snap up Friday Bargains

(8 August 2007), South Africa's online marketplace, extends its Snap Friday auction by 2 hours.

The bidorbuy community has until now, only had a two-hour window period every Friday in which to participate in live online auctions for bargains starting at R1, with no reserve price as part of the Friday Snap Auctions promotion. The Friday Snap Auctions have been very successful, however given that many users are on lunch during 12pm to 2pm on Fridays, bidorbuy has agreed to respond to the requests of their community to extend this live auction by a further 2 hours.

bidorbuy's Business Manager, Gillian Meier says: "We have seen a dramatic increase in both visitors and successful sales being concluded during our weekly Crazy Wednesday and Friday Snap Auction's. The popularity is directly attributed to the fact that buyers are guaranteed to find the best bargains on auction on a wide range of items, while sellers have the opportunity to use these promotions as a marketing tool to attract new buyers to their bargain items, while at the same time seeing positive results on their final sale prices. We have found that consumers thrive on adrenalin shopping by participating in these short online auctions."

Friday Snap Auctions will now start at 11am and close at 3pm every Friday. Any items listed for auction during this time slot, with bids starting from R1 and with no reserve price will be included in the Friday Snap Auction Bids.
