Dedicated gaming auction portal goes from strength-to-strength

Loyal buyers and sellers across the globe make site a success!

17/11/05 - Dedicated games auction website www.videogameauctions.com (VGA) is leading the way as an exciting alternative to other general auction portals.

Aimed solely at committed gamers, VGA has attracted users from more than 35 countries, including the UK, mainland Europe, USA, Hong Kong, Russia and Argentina, and has consistently averaged over 600 auctions at any time, since launching five months ago.

In this time, the UK based auction portal has notched up an impressive 90,000 visits from gamers across the globe, who have made an astounding 3,300,000 page views. Now established amongst the gaming community - the site receives 500 visitors a day, with many viewers becoming registered VGA traders.

VGA has attracted well-known power sellers from other auctions sites, with many renowned Japanese traders selling the latest games, consoles and merchandise direct to your door. The exclusive Gizmondo store offers the handheld, its full software catalogue and newly launched GPS navigation kit - all available with free postage for UK users. The site is also delighted to welcome Neo Geo experts Japan Games Now (www.japangamesnow.com) to its growing portfolio of specialist traders.

Alongside adverts in Future's influential Edge magazine and Official PlayStation 2 and Official Xbox magazines - the team behind VGA are busily improving the site to attract more users to the service.

Satisfying the requirements of its growing global audience, VGA now offers a full multi-currency billing system. The site has also recently added a new bulk system that allows users to import their auction listings from other sites directly into VGA.

The site has recently opened its community forum for members. The forums promise to be a good source of information, from technical issues to shipping discussions. A place where sellers and buyers can get to know each other, the message boards will be an important step in building a community spirit and trust amongst members.
