How our Auction feature can help your business

Online auctions are an alternative sales method that can enhance your business allowing you to reduce the levels of your surplus inventory, along with associated inventory carrying costs. Have you ever encountered problems disposing of seasonal, discontinued, or damaged goods? Some retailers have had to either keep such items in inventory indefinitely, or end up marking down the prices until the items are sold at a loss. IXXO’s auction plugin provides the ultimate sales tool enabling you to sell surplus inventory, often at a profit, and eliminate the expense of storing older merchandise. There are other benefits that having our auction feature can bring to your e-commerce business, by helping to expand your global reach opening international markets that would have been impossible to reach via normal marketing channels. Auctions can help sell your products or even discover the popularity of new products helping you to establish market prices based on supply and demand. By using online auctions to gauge interest in your products you can find out what customers are willing to pay for an item. Collecting such information quickly and informally, rather than investing in time-consuming and expensive market research.

Sometimes, when you are trying to make a good webstore you will face the problems you weren’t counting on in the beginning. Namely, most wholesale options don’t cover everything from the certain branch and they are mainly focused on certain brands and lines of products.
