Our Mission:

Develop powerful buying software to help serious entrepreneurs win lots of newly listed Buy-It-Now deals on eBay

Why uBuyFirst Exist

Everyday, hundreds of thousands of “Buy-It-Now” items are listed on eBay. A small percentage of these items are listed by sellers with prices below market value creating great buying opportunities. However, most sell within a few seconds to a few minutes of being listed. The average buyer won’t even have a chance to view the listing before it’s sold. That’s where uBuyFirst comes in!

How uBuyFirst Helps

uBuyFirst focuses on three core components. Find first, decide quickly and checkout fast. 

Our software delivers search results quickly so you’ll have the best chance of buying the best deals. See all listing details, pictures and item specs any way that you can image. 

Consider it a custom search experience! Lastly,  you’ll have the ability to checkout for an item directly from the app.

Our Story

We started out in the cell phone industry buying iPhone and Android devices from carrier auctions and cell phone wholesalers and exporting them to Asia.  As a supplemental way to acquire devices, we used eBay to purchase units one at a time by the thousands each month. 

Some software existed but nothing with the rich features and speed like we wanted so we developed our own internal software. 

Years later, our business model changed and stopped cell phone trading but saw an opportunity with the software we had created. We tweaked a few things and offered it out not knowing what to expect and within a few months we had a handful of clients who found a lot of value in uBuyFirst. The rest as they say, is history!
