Fascinating piece from Gizmo looking at the growing number of sales services springing up to satisfy the massive eBay phenomenon. Places like AuctionDrop, DropShop and AuctionWagon will take your article, auction and despatch it to the buyer it for a variable fee.
We reported on AuctionDrop a while ago, and this latest news just confirm what we said then. This is one area that I predict will simply explode over the coming 2 years, once people realise that they can convert their overcrowded asset base into hard cash with very little effort. Suddenly there’s no photographing, auction creation and despatch hassles, just money.
