From the Bluetooz® website, “Bluetooz® is about giving you exactly what you want. How did we come up with the premise behind Bluetooz®, the answer was simple, what if. What if you took the best part of Ebay® (auction) and the best part of craigslist® (local) and combined the two. You have a local auction that's free for all, easy and fun to use.” Further, “Now you have a place to auction and sell your items or to find what you want all locally in your home town. No guessing at what you are bidding on, "See it, before you Bid it". No sending money or items, sellers and buyers meet face to face.”
There are no fees, no payment processing, no cost to place an item for auction or to bid or purchase an item. Users are not required to give out their detailed personal and banking information. There is no payment processing or shipping involved because both the seller and the winning bidder are in the same city and can make the exchange in person.
