FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Staying Small, Going Global
Reputation matters when selling to customers around the globe.
YourTown, ST, -- Month DD, 2005 – The internet is known as the great equalizer because it allows people to sell anything to anyone, virtually anywhere in the world. However, before a buyer will actually make a purchase online, the buyer wants low prices and assurances that the seller will deliver the item as promised. One local company, Easterntoys, uses the eBay auction platform to give buyers the price they want. Easterntoys is now giving each potential buyer greater assurance of delivery by showing a real-time count of every sale made to customers in different states, provinces and countries.
Easterntoys publishes their own MyStoreMap with every eBay item they sell. This MyStoreMap tracks each eBay sale to Easterntoys customers in all US states, Canadian provinces and to over 300 countries around the world. Showing actual customer shipment count provides a differentiator which attracts buyers to Easterntoys listings.
“We have found international eBay buyers are often our best buyers.” said Dave Fisch, President of Easterntoys. “In fact, we are counting on more international sales to fuel our continuing growth. Our MyStoreMap helps attract international eBay buyers to our listings.”
Targeting international buyers on eBay is important because 12% of all eBay sales are made from a seller in one country to a buyer in another country. Moreover, eBay’s international buyers bid an average 16% more for an item than domestic buyers.
Easterntoys is building its own international reputation the same way conglomerates like IBM and Boeing did – one customer transaction at a time. Only Easterntoys is using the power of the internet to do it much faster at just a fraction of the cost.
Founded in 2000, Easterntoys sells under the eBay user ID Easterntoys. To view Easterntoys, go to <a href="http://www.ebay.com">www.ebay.com</a>, click “advanced search” in the upper right hand of the screen, then click “Items by Seller” on the left-navigation bar. Enter Easterntoys in the box provided and view the active auction listings for Easterntoys.
