MarketTree.co.uk is the new web site for buying and selling goods and services between individuals and/or businesses by fixed-price and auction transactions.
Our mission is to be the UK’s best electronic exchange for buying and selling goods and services by providing an effective, low-cost, simple-to-use marketplace for consumers, individual traders, and businesses.
The company’s service provides an alternative marketplace for those suffering from EBay’s high charges and the fear of de-registration without adequate explanation.
David and Goliath
What hope can a new challenger have against the established giant? Our new, nimble upstart offers innovations to improve both buyers’ and sellers’ experience of on-line trading which differentiate us from EBay.
Our main innovations are:
a “no surprises” pricing policy (so that all prices for delivered items include the cheapest delivery cost)
auctions that finish 24 hours after the latest bid (there is no pre-determined cut-off time, so no need to delay bidding until the auction is about to finish)
much lower fees
a recruitment scheme that encourages users to recruit new users by giving them a share of the fees that their recruits generate.
You might care to take a look at our web site – or even try us out for buying, selling or recruiting.
