CQout Has Announced That It Has Achieved An Important Milestone With Listings Of Well Over Half A Million Books And Comics

CQout which recently broke into the US market to offer its services to disenfranchised eBay users has grown to become eBay’s closest rival in the UK online auction market by establishing a reputation as a safe, secure and trusted auction site and now has almost 2 million current listings.

CQout Has Announced That It Has Achieved An Important Milestone With Listings Of Well Over Half A Million Books And Comics

Despite new electronic gadgets such as the Amazon Kindle and internet downloads, demand for physical books and printed matter remains as strong as ever. The recent news that a first issue Super Man comic sold for over $1m at auction in USA is further testament to the strong if not growing demand in the book auctions sector.

A major factor in CQout’s continued growth in a market that has seen online auctions sites come and go is the company’s dedication to ‘going the extra mile’ to help its users. This has proved to be especially important for sellers of books and comics who often have difficulties cataloguing their sales inventories.

“We had discussions with two other leading online marketplaces about listing our inventory, but they just seemed too big to care: their attitude was that it was up to me to reformat my entire stock control system to match their very inflexible listing requirements,” reported one major CQout bookseller. “What was so refreshing about CQout is that they obviously wanted my business and were prepared to work hard to get it. What we now have is the listing interface we wanted, with the added benefit that CQout doesn’t charge for listing items- so I’m paying commission only on what I sell, which makes it a highly cost effective solution for us.”

That ‘no sale, no fee’ policy on standard listings is one of the things that has always set CQout apart from its better-known rival, as is the one-off registration fee that CQout charges new users as part of their highly regarded security validation process.

“One of the reasons that we’ve survived so long is that we take a rigorous approach to security and the creation of a safe trading environment for all concerned,” said CQout MD Siamak Bashi. “But above all we’ve recognised since day one that most small businesses and sole traders are busy people who want to make their online presence as simple and hassle free as possible- and that’s why we’re prepared to ‘go the extra mile’ rather than expecting them to work it all out themselves.”

With online sales continuing to rise in the UK and USA, it seems that CQout will continue to be a page turner.

Animal, The Freesports Apparel Brand Has Just Returned From A Very Successful Week At The BRITS Event In Laax, Switzerland

The Animal Slopestyle Championships opened its start gate for the freeski section, which this year saw some familiar faces on the UK Pro ski scene make their play for the title. Having had such a high standard of skiing at last year’s event, the crowds didn’t know what to expect for 2010 but were not disappointed as the competitors excelled themselves with an array of tricks and jumps.

Representing Animal on the pro ski team, both James Webb and Paddy Graham had strong practice runs and were up against some tough names. Unfortunately, worsening snow conditions caught Animal skier James Webb out but Paddy Graham’s smooth run and technicality earned him a well deserved Silver.

After the success and boost in profile generated by the recent Olympic Boarder X event there was a clear raise in the stakes among this year’s competitors. Animal pro snowboarder Kate Foster set the 3rd fastest time in qualifying and progressed through her heats into the final. In a closely fought final, the win went to Charlotte Banks with Kate battling with Ivy Taylor and taking 3rd place and with it her spot on the podium and a bronze medal.

Event Manager Sonia Shaw commented: “The BRITS is the most anticipated snow event of the year and Animal proudly sponsors the most coveted title ‘The Animal Slopestyle’, a course that encompasses everything that skiing and snowboarding can offer: big air, rails and wall rides. The event was electric and having the Animal Pro Team win so many medals was just the icing on the cake for us”.

To reward its customers, the Animal E-Store is offering 50% off all Technical clothing.The Animal Technical range has been completely designed by the in-house design team working very closely with the Animal Pro team to ensure Animal clothing is not only functional and durable but bang on trend. Key features include fully taped seams, waterproof zips, detachable powder skirts with linking systems for pants, chamois wipes, lift pass cuffs and internal pockets for goggles, phones and audio devices.

The online store continues to have exclusive opportunities and competitions for its shoppers as well as free delivery, free returns on all orders and a safe, secure shopping online experience. The E-Store also stocks one of the widest selections of Animal products available in the UK including clothing, watches, bags, footwear, eyewear and accessories, as well as some great value Animal clearance products
