Pitched as the "first form of online commerce that truly engages the consumer", Auction Shopping Australia has launched in Australia.
Limited quantities of "leading brand" products are sold to the highest bidders.
A product catalogue provides all interested bidders with product information. All items in the catalogue come with original packaging and manufacturer warranties. Each item listed has a full description, regular retail price, the number of units for sale, and a minimum bid price. Bidders can participate via the telephone or the Auction Shopping Australia Web site; they must be over 18 year of age and have a relevant, valid credit card. All bids, successful or not, atttract a bid fee between $4 and $6.
Auction results are certified each month by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu.
The first auction will run from 5 July until 12 July, 24 hours per day. All auctions last 8 days. For more information and to get a catalogue, call 1300 303 158 or visit www.auctionshop.com.au
