WEBSITE OVERVIEW: Site will enable its members to earn income by listing, merchandise from the company's Web site to various online auction sites, such as eBay and Yahoo. It will make the process of listing, selling, and shipping simple for its members who sell merchandise on on-line auction sites. They can also sell their merchandise in their very own virtual storefront through our site's personal WebPages. Our site will handle posting to auction sites and order fulfillment on behalf of its users. About the main membership service: Some definitions: Members - anyone who registered on the site (could later be changed to require a minimally paid membership fee). Members can invite new members. Members can also achieve dealer status. Dealer - anyone who is willing to offer support and customer service to other members. Members must choose the dealer they will work with since he will be the main point of contact with the company. Company will handle only the special cases. Most of the other questions must go through dealers. Dealers are independent businessmen and we do not guarantee their performance. Users must use their own judgment by choosing the dealer. Members must check all the references provided by the dealer before using any of his services. Dealer may offer the following services: receive payments, send and receive merchandise, offer customer support and anything else that may be required by the community. To qualify as a dealer the member must offer minimum services. Everything that the dealer offers must be clearly stated on his page. The dealer's page will list his references plus anything dealer may want to add. a) User feedback - customers can leave their feedback about their experience with the dealer b) What verifications dealer had passed (if any) will be specified on his page - (in the future a minimum membership fee may be requested) 1. ID- He can forward by mail or fax his ID, personally meet one of the verified users etc. 2. In direct verification by phone (He pays) 3. By confirming that he is already verified by other sites WM, PayPal, his feedback rating on eBay, He controls the domain name etc. 4. Can put in a deposit to guarantee his performance. The amount should be visible on the site. 5. He can also put his picture on his page. 6. Confirming his address (utility bill, bank statement). Member can choose the dealer he wants to work with. If the member came by himself he can choose the dealer he wants to work with. Users can move to another dealer at anytime. Members/Dealers commissions are as follows - from the cost of the goods displayed on the site - 2-5% depending on the item. 20% of it is paid to the member or dealer who invited the user to become the member. 80% is paid to the dealer who processed user's transaction. If the dealer is the referring member than he gets all 100% commission. The service: 1. Our members sell items at online auction sites. Member pays a membership fee, select items for auction, and collects the profits! If the item doesn't sell after the auction period, the item can be returned to our virtual warehouse, at no expense to the member. 2. To use the site and to see the prices user must first register on the site. (FREE) 3. To sell any merchandise user must purchase a membership (minimum $100) but in the beginning specials may be offered (try it for $50 or similar). 4. That annual fee becomes an account of credits. The minimum is $100 for 100 credits. Member uses credits to list items on auction or this or other sites. Each auction takes one week. After it's over member's credit investment returns to his account. Whether or not member's item was sold. Member can use those credits again and again until his membership expires. For example, the clock is valued at 25 credits (and member has a 100-credit membership). If he chooses it for an auction, he'll invest 25 credits and still have 75 credits left in his account. After an auction, he gets his credits back to reuse in another auction. But he also gets the profit from the sale. If his clock was sold for $33, he gets his 25 credits back plus $8 clear profit. 5. Member can always buy more credits. Credits will have its own expiration date of one year (52 weeks). 6. When member decides to sell an item he will go to his account where the Auction Helper will serve up three items based on member's preferences. So that the member can choose the best item he will be offered information including charts with eBay prices for a given item, % profit or loss from the prices charged by the website. The ability to search for items with maximum % of profit for the last week, or the cheapest or highest priced items etc. Member picks the one he thinks is best. If he doesn't like any items that were suggested by the helper based on the member's criteria, he can choose "next" for more, and the Helper will serve up three more. He can continue to have items served up until he finds an item. Once he selects an item, he can decide which auction site will sell it. He can also select the item by going to the item directly by using a search option of the site or through category listings. Member will be offered an ability to have his own informational page were he can list his policies (payments, shipping etc.) with the link to this page from the auction page. ALSO the member will be offered to have a STOREFRONT page were others can see all his items for sale with links to his auctions (specially it could be useful if the member uses more than one auction site to sell his items (eBay and yahoo). They can also have their own AUCTION on that page (if item is not on other auction sites) for FREE. PRE SALE auctions are also possible where the member can choose items to be listed in an auction a week in advance. This way people can start looking at the item earlier and the auction will be placed automatically on time by the system (or if the member gets an offer that he will be satisfied with he may skip that listing and avoid the listing and final fee all together (charged by auction sites). After he clicks submit - he will get the page with the item description, payment methods that the member is willing to accept (check, money order, credit card, PayPal etc.), shipping option and prices, his user id at the auction site etc (provided that he entered all that information previously (during registration process or later by editing his account). He can edit anything he wants than clicks submit. The user at this time will be offered to send payment for this item to us or his dealer so that by the time the auction ends we'll be able to send the item to his buyer or to him. After that our site does the rest (member just have to collect the payment from the buyer and pay us or his dealer for the merchandise sold) we'll even ship the merchandise directly to the customer. 7. After taking one item to auction, member can then go back and selects additional items to utilize his remaining available credits. At any time, he can track his auctioned items by viewing a real-time bid status. That annual fee is all he ever pays to us. Member never has to take possession of an item unless he wants to.
