Is selling on bidorbuy your business or your hobby?
What started as a hobby eventually turned into a full time online business.
I’ve been on bidorbuy since varsity, around 2003. I started selling online part time while studying a masters degree in business. For the past two years I have been a full time seller on bidorbuy.
What first prompted you to sell on bidorbuy?
The excitement and thrill of online auctions. It was a new, exciting and different platform to sell things back in 2003.
What are the biggest benefits that you find selling on bidorbuy?
Self-employment and flexible work hours. We bring the bargains, bidorbuy brings the buyers. And it’s a done deal.
What sets your company or products apart from the rest?
We supply authentic luxury designer brands at up to 80% savings from retail prices. Our objective has always been to bring consumers the absolute best in luxury fashion accessories at an affordable price. Our products and service are 5-star and we intend to keep it that way.
How do you promote your products?
If you have quality items, promotion works itself. The better your quality and the more value you can provide for the price being paid, the more likely it is that your products will promote themselves.

Top notch customer service has always been a priority. It costs more to attract a new customer than to retain an old one. Keep your customers coming back and you’re sure to increase your sales volumes.
