Icybid eBay Alternative Online Auctions Achieves a First in the Industry: Pinterest Functionality. Icybid has just added Pinterest buttons to all the images in all of its auctions. eBay doesn't have it; no other online auction Website has it. Only Icybid lets the Pinterest user conveniently add an auction image to her Pinterest board.
TORONTO, April 20, 2012 -- Icybid Auctions is the first online auction Website to integrate Pinterest into its auction listings. Pinterest, the image and photo social-sharing network that began only two-and-a-half years ago, is the hottest social network since Twitter.
Until now, pinning an online auction image has been cumbersome. A Pinterest user had to install the Pin It bookmarklet, click the image, and then click the bookmarklet for the pin to go through. If the image was not on a separate page that shows the bookmarklet, the task became even more difficult.
But, with Icybid's Pinterest integration, pinning an auction image is as easy as clicking the Pinterest Pin It button below each image. Located below the listing's description, the image gallery lines up each image vertically. Clicking the button brings up the Pinterest Pin It window with the image and a basic description automatically loaded. Putting it on a board is as easy as clicking Pin It again.
With the help of two veteran programmers, PHP Pro Bid expert Voldemaras Birskys of Mods4U and freelance whiz Brandon Bradley, Icybid has conceived, installed, tweaked and tested its Pinterest functionality. For the first time, pinning an auction image is both convenient and easy.
"It's a real first," Icybid administrator D.M. Ryan said. "I'm a little surprised no-one thought of it earlier.
"To be honest, I was searching around and looking at eBay while the installation was going on to see if someone else would beat us to it."
Pinterest, as the Website that reached ten million unique visitors in record-fast time, is clearly with the future. With Icybid's new Pinterest functionality, thanks to the hard work of Birskys and Bradley, Icybid is now with Pinterest.
Icybid eBay alternative online auctions was started two years ago by an eBay seller sick of paying eBay's fees. Conceived as a way to "Say 'No' to Feebay," its growth has been steady after an initial spurt. Offering free basic listings after a one-time verified seller fee, Icybid offers a venue where sellers do not have to jack up prices to compensate for a high final-value fee. Like its peers, Icybid is completely free for buyers.
