Omaha, NE―November 16, 2015― Proxibid (www.proxibid.com), the most trusted online Marketplace for buying and selling highly valued items, today announced that item listings for heavy equipment, industrial machinery, farm equipment, cars, and trucks are now available on eBay. This integration provides buyers with a seamless, convenient way to browse and buy inventory previously unavailable on eBay, while giving sellers access to eBay’s 159 million buyers worldwide.
Earlier this year, Proxibid and eBay entered into an exclusive relationship to bring Proxibid auction inventory in the Business & Industrial category to the eBay marketplace. Both Proxibid and eBay will promote the item listings, giving buyers more options when purchasing business and industrial inventory online.
“The addition of Proxibid’s item listings enables eBay to expand its reach in the Business & Industrial category,” said Rob Francis, General Manager of Business & Industrial at eBay. “The Proxibid brand is well-known and respected in the industry, and brings with it a wealth of experience in the secondary equipment market. Integrating Proxibid’s listings into eBay provides our users with access to equipment from top sellers in the industry, while offering Proxibid exposure to eBay’s massive global buyer base.”
Both Proxibid and eBay have years of experience in selling equipment and industrial machinery online. As sellers of used equipment continue to seek ways to maximize return on investments, this new item listing integration provides new avenues for liquidating assets.
“We are excited to see our partnership with eBay continue to move forward with this new integration. With more than $2 billion in Business & Industrial inventory passing through the Proxibid Marketplace this year alone, no one is better suited to provide eBay with item listings for this category,” said Ryan Downs, President and CEO of Proxibid. “Proxibid’s deep industry experience and sophisticated listings engine, combined with eBay’s global reach, offers sellers a powerful tool to grow their businesses.”
Buyers can rest assured knowing their purchase is protected by Proxibid’s proprietary risk management system, designed to ensure transactions for high value items like equipment and industrial machinery are secure. Additionally, all purchases are backed by eBay’s Business Equipment Purchase Protection and Vehicle Purchase Protection programs.
Proxibid provides asset owners of all sizes and buyers with access to the world’s most trusted online Marketplace and selling solutions for excess inventory. More than $3 billion in inventory passes through Proxibid’s Marketplace annually in product categories that include heavy equipment; commercial and industrial equipment; collector cars; fine art, antiques and collectibles; real estate, and more. Founded in 2001, Proxibid is headquartered in Omaha, NE with offices in New York and London. For more information about Proxibid, please visit www.proxibid.com.
