Bidadoo saw a record second quarter in sales, volume, and online traffic as buyers and sellers benefitted from bidadoo's 100% online auction model.

Highlights included a website traffic surge of 155% and a new-visitor spike of 188% (year-over-year). Also, sellers took advantage of the increased traffic that contributed 35% sales growth during the quarter, over last year.

With 17 years of dedicated online remarketing experience on the world's largest global auction platform, bidadoo attracts a truly global audience of primarily end-user buyers. bidadoo brings the auction to buyers around the world - without the need to travel.

A trusted 100% online marketplace and the largest seller of equipment and trucks on eBay, bidadoo enables its sellers to reach a truly global buyer base of 183 million registered users. During the COVID-19 crisis, many strategic accounts - existing and new - have pivoted to bidadoo as their preferred remarketing partner. Many traditional live auction companies have tried to quickly adapt to marketing units online but are finding their AS-IS/WHERE-IS, Buyer-Beware model doesn't provide buyers with the necessary information to make informed purchasing decisions online.

With bidadoo's efficient online auction model, sellers are able to achieve superior net returns vs. many live and online auction providers. bidadoo provides sellers with quicker speed to market, a global end-user buyer base, and no need to transport equipment to a land-based live auction facility.

bidadoo's Record-Breaking Second Quarter (Q2):

  • Sales Growth Over 35%
  • New User Web Traffic Up 188%
  • Overall Web Traffic Up 155%
  • Participation from 151 Countries
  • Mobile Participation over 65% of transactions (phone and tablet)
  • Video Demonstrations on Every Machine
  • Over 124,000,000 Item Impressions
  • Increase in Active Sellers of 38% - the number of "auction sites" or customer locations served, saving costly transport of equipment to a live auction facility

"Covid-19 has accelerated the trends in equipment remarketing as buyers look to safely source equipment online from trusted sellers. bidadoo's 100% online model has been developed over the past 17 years," reports Howard Hawk, bidadoo president. "We have always believed that equipment shouldn't travel just to be marketed or sold, nor should bidders feel the need to travel to make informed buying decisions - that's an old school model riddled with inefficiencies and unneeded costs. With the onset of Covid-19 that realization has become increasingly clear with sellers and buyers as travel is restricted in many areas. With bidadoo, we bring the auction to you, both buyers and sellers. bidadoo's model is proving to be a much more efficient model over traditional land-based auctions"

"We've had great success working with bidadoo", says Brendan Russell, vice president of operations, Medley Equipment Company. "We've found that their professional remarketing efforts via equipment photos, videos, and detailed machine info enable bidders to make better-informed and trusted buying decisions without the costly need to travel to inspect equipment at an auction site. bidadoo is a great partner and takes care of everything!"
