TradeOut-Bringing Further Success to Your Online Business
Recently, eBay and TradeOut, the leading Internet marketplace for surplus business assets, announced an agreement
that brings new buyers to eBay's Business Exchange and offers attractive new opportunities for eBay sellers to source
items to resell.
Under the agreement, eBay will establish direct links to TradeOut from the eBay Business Exchange area and TradeOut
will prominently display eBay on its home page and provide links to the eBay Business Exchange so as to bring new members
TradeOut is an online exchange where companies buy and sell surplus assets in more than 100 categories, including
excess inventory and used manufacturing equipment. The companies on TradeOut range from Fortune 500 industrial companies
to mid-sized wholesale distributors. Much of the inventory is sold in bulk and today cannot be found on eBay.
eBay sellers will now be able to source large lots of merchandise, such as computers or cosmetics, from TradeOut and
resell them in smaller quantities on eBay. Additionally, TradeOut customers will be able to buy and sell individual items,
such as desks, delivery vans or cash registers, on the eBay Business Exchange.
We hope that this arrangement will bring value to your current business!
