San Francisco, CA, United States, 2008/07/07 - New feature sends a single offer to multiple sellers on similar or matching items; generates quicker transactions in enhancing member satisfaction - iOffer.com.
In the consumer world, buyers want the best deal, and sellers want their business. What better way to combine the two desires than iOffer's group offers, which allows buyers to send a single offer to multiple sellers on matching or similar items. The first seller to accept the offer wins the buyer’s business. Buyers get what they want; sellers get a quick and smooth transaction.
Buyers may initiate group offers in several different ways. Buyers may browse or search for an item. When they make an offer, they have the option to create a group offer on matching or similar items from different sellers. Alternatively, they may choose to create a group offer from their search results or shopping cart. Once buyers create a group offer, they can sit back, relax, and wait for a seller to respond to their offer.
To take advantage of group offers, sellers are encouraged to update their notification settings to be notified immediately once they receive a new offer. These notifications may be sent via their iOffer message center, personal emails, cell phone text messages, and instant messenger applications. With updated notification settings, sellers improve their chances to complete transactions when more group offers are made.
Not to confuse group offers with bundle offers, group offers let buyers make offers based on a spending budget, sending one offer price to multiple sellers to compete for the buyer's business on matching or similar items, whereas bundle offers allow buyers to make one offer price for multiple items from the same seller in a store negotiation, just like buying clothes in a clothing store or buying grocery at a market. These buying options are just two of many ways that characterizes iOffer's continued efforts to optimize the online buying and selling experience.
The integration of group offers helps iOffer take another step forward in providing an interactive online community for its engaging members. Creating more group offers improve buyers' chances of attaining an item, while sellers who remain actively online will have the first opportunity to accept the offers, since iOffer's Live Notice feature inform members who are currently online immediately of any actions taking place regarding their offers and/or items.
In addition to group offers, iOffer provides live real-time events for members to network and showcase their items. Members also gather in the community clubs to assist each other and converse over common interests. Through an array of interactive channels, iOffer is clearly satisfying its record growing number of members.
