About UBuyFirst “Buy It Now” Deal Finder Background and History
Remember the eBay days when buying great bargains meant going to the post office and sending money orders?
Oh the good ol’ days!
Ever since I was 14 years old, I’ve been buying and selling on eBay.
15 years later, eBay remains the best place to find great deals from sellers all around the USA and Internationally. Back in 2010, I started buying and selling iPhones and other cell phones as my primary income when I noticed a very lucrative trend.
- The BEST deals on eBay are Buy-It-Now listings.
- Sellers are unaware of the actual market price or prefer to sell quickly to get cash.
- The deals are many times significantly lower than other auction items.
But there was a serious challenge to winning these killer deals!
Almost every item that was significantly below the average price had been purchased before I could even see the listing!
- The lower the price, the faster the item sold!
- The few listings that I could find through search (or a browser refresh add-on) that weren’t already sold were lost during the checkout process!
Unfortunately, these items are not available. They may have been purchased already or the item listing has expired. – eBay.com
D*** It! What the !? – How is someone seeing these items so quickly and checking out for them so darn fast!
UBuyFirst Was Born!
After some research and checking out the marketplace, I figured it had to be some savvy programmers developing some sophisticated applications using eBay’s API.
Since 2010, I’ve purchased over 5 Million Dollars worth of Cell Phones and other electronics on eBay for resale.
Along the way, our company created our own custom software for internal use to gain an advantage. More importantly, it gave us exactly what we needed with the user interface and for the cell phones we were purchasing.
Life always seems to throw curve balls and in early 2013, my time was very limited and we stopped buying. However, once the water cleared, another business start-up was consuming most of our time and forced the eBay Buying Business to remain idle.
After a few talks with my developer, we decided we would apply for EPN (eBay Partner Network) and modify the applications to fit the general audience. But not just any audience! More like a club of power buyers and serious flippers who want to make serious money!
UBuyFirst is a POWER BUYER’s Application
It’s not for your casual deal hunter. No sir! It’s made specifically for those who are serious about buying low priced Buy It Now items on eBay part-time or full-time, consistently.
We Know Our Stuff!
Did I mention we purchased over $5,000,000.00 (5 Million) dollars worth of items on eBay over a 3 year period???
The most important aspects of successfully purchasing newly listed BIN items include:
- Finding Items First – You must see them before others do. – Consistently!
- Read Description and Decision Making – With rare exceptions, you need to read the entire listing including item specs, warranty/ returns etc. so you can make a quick informed purchasing decision.
- Checkout – You must get to the browser and checkout through PayPal for the item quickly. It can be lost in checkout.
Speed, Features and Customization Matter!
Little details are the difference between winning and losing.
“U Buy First” might not be the prettiest application you’ve ever seen. That’s because the focus is spent on a simple and clean interface with the functions that make a difference.
— But don’t worry, we’ll probably clean it up at some point in the future!
