Low Start Online Auctions Arrive in Kenya

All Articles   |   Items in bidorbuy

bidorbuy.co.ke has launched the first ever Crazy Wednesday auctions in Kenya. The bidding starts at Ksh1, and there is no reserve.

On Tuesday 20 September 2011, one year almost to the day after it was launched, bidorbuy Kenya marks another stepping stone: the introductions of Crazy Wednesday auctions.

The Crazy Wednesday online auctions are a uniquely bidorbuy concept. They open on Tuesdays at noon and close by midnight on Wednesday. All items listed on Crazy Wednesday start at the lowest possible opening bid, which, on www.bidorbuy.co.ke, is one Kenyan shilling.

This auction format has been very popular on the South African bidorbuy site since its introduction over five years ago. These days, Crazy Wednesday on www.bidorbuy.co.za, where auctions start at R1, features about 5,000 items every week. The range of products is varied and includes latest consumer goods, rare collectibles and, on some weeks, even cars.

The younger Kenyan sister-site starts off its own Crazy Wednesday more humbly, with three items, all highly desirable: a Samsung Galaxy Tablet, Samsung Galaxy Mini and tickets to the Wine Show in Kenya.

¿For buyers looking for a bargain, the Crazy Wednesday auctions are definitely worth a visit¿, says Jaco Jonker, bidorbuy CEO. ¿As for sellers, they have proven to be a successful way for them to market their products to a high traffic audience¿, he adds.

Often, the most successful auctions on bidorbuy.co.za are the ones that start from the lowest opening bid. These auctions attract the bidders who usually drive up the price to the item¿s real value ¿ providing, of course, that the item is in high demand. Experienced sellers also use the popularity of the Crazy Wednesday auctions as an advertising tool, to draw attention to their merchandise on the site.

Sellers who are interested in offering their products in the Crazy Wednesday Ksh1 auction may view the listing requirements in the bidorbuy.co.ke Help section.
