Proxibid is an online marketplace that is part auction and part retail store, and whose aim is to allow their users to bid on live or timed auctions from their pc or mobile device. According to their website, almost 10,000 new members join their marketplace each month.
How Does Proxibid Work?
There are four different ways of purchasing things on this digital marketplace: instant purchase, make an offer, timed auction, or live auction. Instant purchase is when a seller prices an item at a price that requires no negotiation - buyers who will pay the price can purchase it outright. Make an offer, on the other hand, is for items which can be negotiated.
A timed auction has a set beginning and end time during which members can make bids online for a variety of items from a single seller, while a live auction functions like a traditional auction - live, phone, and online bidders all compete for a single item at a time until the auction is closed.
Creating a membership account is completely free and takes just a few minutes for you to upload your personal shipping and billing information - they also provide free spectator accounts, but a full account must be created before you can take part in any buying.
And since the items for sale on this website are described as "highly valued items," users can expect them to be in the higher price values as well, though with such a wide range of items and such a varied way of purchasing them, it is hard to provide a specific price range.
Because Proxibid.com is just a marketplace website that brings sellers and buyers together and performs the ecommerce functions necessary for the transaction of the goods, they personally do not offer a Refund Policy.
All buyers should be aware that the sellers themselves will have to be the ones who honor any potential Return or Refund Policies, though they are not required to do so.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to contact their Customer Service team with questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 877-505-7770, by traditional mail at 4411 South 96 Street, Omaha, NE 68127, or by submitting them directly to the website.
Unfortunately this company seems to have many mixed reviews, with some customers saying that the pictures of the item they bid on mislead them to the quality or condition of the item and when they went to complain, the website would not help them.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many other digital marketplaces online, including the well known eBay, TopHatter.com, Listia, and more.
