CQout Unites With Microformats

CQout, the international online marketplace and auction community site, has joined the microformat trend to help make CQout easier to find and understand for search engines and improve the user’ experience.

CQout Unites With Microformats

Search engines like Google and Yahoo!, which CQout use to market and help users find their online auctions are able to read and understand microformats, which are small pieces of compound HTML that can be used to tag web pages with Metadata. The search engines with their new found knowledge of CQout auctions can then extract and display snippets of auction content within their search results next to listings. This should be able to then help the user to decide whether they want to take their search further or not by confirming that that this is the search they were looking for.

Siamak Bashi, Managing Director at CQout said: “Our Buyers and Sellers are the real power behind CQout. Without them, the website would be redundant. For this reason, we need to make sure we keep ahead of the game and by adopting microformats, I think we have made a step that achieves just that. We can only praise microformats.org, Google and Yahoo! for their great resources that made this happen.”

CQout Announces Special Deal For Newly Registered Sellers

CQout has announced that it is targeting disaffected Chinese Sellers following unpopular eBay rules changes.

CQout Announces Special Deal For Newly Registered Sellers

In the wake of a raft of changes announced by eBay to its Marketplaces business, and a subsequent feeling of dissatisfaction amongst many of its Sellers at new fees and the new eBay Buyer Protection Plan, CQout has announced that it has these eBay refugees set firmly in its sights.

Siamak Bashi, managing director of CQout, commented: “CQout is aware that many Sellers, and those from China in particular operate at very competitive prices and narrow margins. The price changes at eBay hits those Sellers the hardest, wiping out any meager profits they are making, resulting in some Sellers giving up all together. CQout’s lower fee structure and free listings gives these Sellers a real alternative”.

CQout believes that because Sellers make a huge investment in terms of their time and effort to list a big inventory onto an online auction site, they also need the stability of knowing that the site will not be making policy and prices changes which would make their business unsustainable. The continuous alterations which eBay has made in recent months has lead to huge dissatisfaction amongst many of its Sellers, especially within the Chinese market and provided the ideal opportunity for CQout to highlight that eBay is not the only game in town.

With a track record of not making any changes to its fees over the last five years and a solid history of providing continuity and certainty for sellers who need to plan log term, CQout is in the perfect position to appeal to these disaffected eBay Marketplace customers.

To further entice new customers to add their inventories onto CQout’s listings and take advantage of the various sales opportunities it provides like its Consumer Electronics Auctions, Photographic Equipment, Computer Auctions and Music Auctions, CQout is also offering a new joining bonus for Sellers. As a gesture of good CQout has announced it is offering a cash incentive of £20 credited to all new Sellers’ accounts which are registered during June and who list their entire inventory with the auction service.

CQout Offers Free ShopFronts To Sellers With 100 Or More Items

CQout, international online market place and auction community, has set its sights on enticing new sellers who are currently trading elsewhere to sign up and list their inventory, by offering free online shop fronts.

CQout Offers Free ShopFronts To Sellers With 100 Or More Items

Following on closely from its 10th anniversary celebrations and a series of expansion plans into America, CQout has announced that it is offering free ShopFronts to sellers with 100 or more items in order to entice them onto the network and experience the many benefits which the community has to offer.

The new offer means that any seller who joins up with CQout and lists more than 100 items will be offered a free ShopFront for one year worth £114 (£97 +VAT). Sellers can also use any of CQout’s four bulk upload facilities to list their items, along with a wide range of bulk upload tools like the CQout Auto-Sync which is designed to make the process as quick and painless as possible.

Auto-Sync is a new technology which has recently been introduced by CQout which aims to take away all the administrative chores experienced by sellers, allowing them to devote their time to servicing both their sales and their customers. Auto-Sync takes data automatically from a seller’s own website to create a professional-looking auction listing on CQout.

This new offer forms part of CQout’s plans to take on the other major online auction sites. To this end CQout has firmly set its sights onto disaffected eBay sellers by listening to what customers and sellers are actually saying in order to ensure the user experience of CQout meets their needs.

Siamak Bashi, CQout Managing Director commented: “The most important factor for Sellers to gain success is to have a large inventory listings for sale – the more sellers have listed, the more likely are the chances of buyers finding what they want therefore making sales. Our bulk upload facilities and now this free ShopFront offer is our way of helping Sellers become successful.”
