12/5/04 bluay.com has launched
December 5, 2004 -- blujay.com, the free online fixed price marketplace
which allows the small business and individual seller to reach their buyers
over the internet, finally releases the service for the public to use.
After years of development and months of testing, blujay.com announces
that the service is ready for the small business to start selling on the
internet for free which would otherwise cost hard earned money on other
"Small businesses already have very slim margins for what they're
selling. We believe that selling online should be free, just like searching
online, or emailing your family. Releasing this service is our effort
to further that belief," says Henderson Hsieh, marketing spokesperson
blujay.com offers features that cost big money on other sites.
In order to help the small business & individual seller to reach buyers
online, the service allows them to open a webstore with a simple url "blujay.com/username"
for free. Additionally, the service provides space on the storefront where
the seller can include a physical store address, phone number or even
a brief description of what they sell.
Some other features the service provides include item management tools,
item listings with up to 4 photos, and item listings lasting 180 days.
By comparison, on other sites each of these features is considered an
"upgrade" on top of listing fees or monthly storefront fees
being charged. For instance, thumbnail images in search results costs
$0.25 & each additional photo costs $0.15 for each item on ebay. These
types of fees quickly add up to significant amounts. On blujay.com, everything
Sometimes auctions don't work.
Not everything for sale on other sites sells because the item doesn't
find the right buyer in the 7 days of an auction or 30 days of a classified.
By allowing a seller to list their item for 180 days, the blujay.com service
allows more exposure and therefore increases the chance that a seller
will find the right buyer.
blujay.com is the free photo marketplace that offers the small business
& individual seller the tools, services, & features needed to
reach their buyers over the internet. A seller can list items with 4 photos
each and refer people to their store via a simple link "blujay.com/your_username"
all for Free.
