Penny Auctions Finally Got To Barbados!

Bajans gearing up for the ultimate battle. “Who will win the iPhone 5s?”


If you’ve never heard of penny auctions, it’s a type of web platform which all participants pay a non-refundable fee to place each small incremental bid. The auction ends after a period of time, typically 15 seconds, without new bids; the last participant to have placed a bid wins the item and also pays the final bid price, which is significantly lower than the retail price of the item.

1. Dateline

The official web release is November 8th .

2. Introduction

Due to the economic crisis, business owner Hayden Browne whose been in the tourism field and restaurant consulting since 2002 decided to put his foot down and start a new business which is more suitable for the economy.

He says “As bad as things are in Barbados, many Bajans still have the latest electronic device and more.”

Thus came the idea of “[url removed, login to view]” where people can buy items for a fraction of the retail cost.

3. Details

Bidding starts at BD$[url removed, login to view] and sometimes winners earn up to 95% off on items. Impossible deals? NO!!

Due to the possibility of participants spending a lot of money and still losing an auction, or ultimately spending more than the retail value of the item they end up winning, some analysts have criticized the penny auction model or compared it to gambling. Know exactly how the bidding works, set a limit for yourself, and be prepared to walk away before you go over that limit.
