Oklahoma City, OK — August 2012 — QuiBids.com, the world’s leading entertainment retail auction, announces that its expansion into the European Union will begin in earnest next week, when it opens auctions in France and Germany. The two countries will be QuiBids’ fifth and sixth markets of operation, and the company will sell products across all current QuiBids categories, including the Samsung Galaxy S phone, Apple iPad, and Canon camera bundles.
“The EU’s previous experience with entertainment auctions was unfortunately marred with corruption,” said Jill Farrand, QuiBids’ director of public relations. “But we’re confident opening up there because of our previously established relationships with European vendors and manufacturers, our dedication to customer support, and new fraud detection system.”
The Oklahoma City-based company has also sent an American employee to an office in Malta, where he will oversee European operations with the help of a consultant familiar with the EU retail climate. QuiBids has also contracted the help of several native French and German speakers to translate the information on each version of the site for its respective audience.
“Our long-term vision is to launch QuiBids in every country on the continent,” Farrand said. “But we won’t just open shop in a country without first establishing the infrastructure to help customers there.”
QuiBids has hired several bilingual customer support representatives to work in its Oklahoma City office within the last six months, so French and German customers can seek assistance in their native tongue. Like all current QuiBids markets the French and German markets will be freestanding, meaning that French customers will only bid against French customers, for example.
“We want to remain conscientious of each market’s distinct desire for product,” Farrand said. “We’ll be sourcing domestically. Not just shipping over products from brands that customers have never heard of.”
QuiBids launched in October of 2009 and has expanded with their improved internet auction model. QuiBids live auctions are more exciting, reliable and safer than other online auction websites. QuiBids is a Better Business Bureau (BBB) accredited business.
