Durham, N.C., April 10th, 2013 – BUYSTAND, a Durham, N.C. e-commerce start-up, today announced the public beta launch of buystand.com, an online marketplace that allows consumers to buy the outdoor gear they want at the price they want to pay. At buystand.com, consumers can browse through thousands of outdoor products, ranging from camping gear to running shoes, and make-an-offer on any of these products at the price they’re willing to pay. BUYSTAND’s Edge Pricing Engine matches those offers to retailers and brands that are willing to sell at that price.
BUYSTAND Founder and COO, Ted Kraus, calls it a win-win for consumers and retailers. “Our novel shopping experience empowers consumers to purchase products at their own unique price point” Kraus explained, “while simultaneously providing retailers with the platform they need to more dynamically and profitably move product from their shelves.”
Apart from its core technology, make-an-offer shopping, BUYSTAND features staff-curated Collections, offering consumers valuable insights into the best gear for various adventures and activities. Collections range from all the necessities you need for hiking the Appalachian Trail to the must-have items for the summer Music Festival circuit.
“We’re extremely excited to be opening up BUYSTAND’s unique shopping experience to the public” says Joe Davy, CEO. “Over the past several months, we’ve developed a product that consumers, retailers and brands have loved using. In particular, we know that outdoor enthusiasts, like many of the individuals on the BUYSTAND team, will enjoy saving money by naming their own price on the best gear in the industry.”
BUYSTAND already features many of the most popular brands in the outdoor industry, but they are always seeking to expand their selection. Interested brands, manufactures and retailers should contact Phil DeSimone, Director of Partnerships, at Phil.Desimone@Buystand.com or (919) 260-6987.
