Go Swap is On a Mission by Kenneth W. Richards - Mon Mar 20, 2006 04:05pm
A lot of people have their doubts about this site. Our goal is to create a popular auction site with virtually no fees and no advertising. Some of you may wonder how we plan to make money with this site.
Let us assure you that our goal is not to make a ton of money or become a big money-grubbing large corporation. Our goal is to make enough money to continue providing you with a quality auction service with the latest features available. We are anti-corporation and big-business. Like Craigslist™, we have no aspirations to grow into a huge profit-driven behemoth catering to the whims of its shareholders.
Don't get us wrong though, we will attempt to bring in a small amount of money. We promise to you that we will never charge for basic auction listings and there be no fees to either the buyer nor the seller. We will only charge for premium or add-on services and may at some point solicit donations to help support our cause.
We are not on a mission to take down the biggeest auction site (E-Bay™), but we would like to give buyers and sellers a good alternative to chose opposed to the exorbitent fees charged by the "big guys."
We hope that you will join us in this noble endeavor. You don't have to subject yourself to fees and charges as a seller, you do have options... there is a better way!
Our aim is to create a democratic auction site. We welcome our members to submit proposals on how we may improve our services and make the site better for all. We will be implementing a forum for new proposals and a list detailing what we are currently working on. We want this to be your site more than anything else.
