Draper, UT, July 20, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Imagine an online shopping experience in which supply and demand impact prices in real time. Imagine an e-commerce website that combines the thrill of an online auction, the rush of the stock market selling floor, and the convenience of no-hassle shopping.
When TiKR.com launches in late summer, it will offer all of this and more in a unique online shopping experience. TiKR combines the best features of existing e-commerce options with new benefits designed to make online shopping both easy and exciting.
TiKR will offer a variety of new consumer items including electronics, clothes, and more. Its new technology sets prices based on real-time supply and demand and it combines the benefits of the existing e-commerce formats without their disadvantages.
Real-Time Supply & Demand = Real-Time Excitement
Unlike retail stores where the price is fixed or auction websites where the price only rises, prices on TiKR will rise and fall in reaction to the real-time effect of supply and demand. The premise is simple economics, but instead of waiting days or weeks for market forces to affect prices, the changes will be shown within a few seconds or minutes.
A graph is displayed next to each product description, showing the potential buyer how the price has increased or decreased over the past few minutes. Shoppers can watch as prices rise and fall and can choose to buy when the item meets their desired price point.
Real-time pricing means real excitement. The company’s slogan, “buy low, save high,” references the stock market adage of “buy low, sell high,” hoping to invoke in its transactions the same excitement and rush found on the stock market selling floor or in the last few minutes of an online auction.
The Best of Online Shopping, in One Convenient Place
TiKR is the brainchild of Kevin Neilson and Todd Jensen, both former eBay employees. After years of studying the way consumers want to buy, Kevin and Todd knew there had to be a better solution than the existing e-commerce options. They created TiKR to replicate the best features of current e-commerce sites and satisfy the consumer wants that existing platforms failed to meet.
The past few years have seen many changes in e-commerce formats, each with distinct strengths and weaknesses. Auctions are exciting, but only in the final minutes. Marketplaces offer many choices, but it is hard to compare quality with so many different suppliers. Deal-of-the-day websites offer great deals, but on a limited number of items.
