BiddyBomb – A New Penny Auction

biddy-bomb-review

BiddyBomb.com is a new penny auction website which launched just a few weeks ago. We had the opportunity to interview BiddyBomb’s founder, Trey Schneider, to learn more about the Biddy Bomb penny auction.

How long have you been in business?

We have been in business for about 6 weeks.

How many auctions per day?

We run about 90 auctions per day.

Tell us about the types of products which you currently auction.

Auction products include a wide variety of gift cards (restaurants, sporting goods, cosmetics, airlines) and many small electronic goods (headphones, speakers, smart/exercise watches, computer accessories).

Please tell us about some of the different types of auctions which BiddyBomb offers

As of right now, there is just one type of generic auction.  We are currently working to develop a ‘buy it now’ option.

What is the cost of bids on BiddyBomb.com?

The price per bid varies based on the size of the bid pack purchased.  The smallest bid pack is $1/bid, and the largest bid back is $0.55/bid. We are also offering two specials right now.  (1) New users get 5 free bids, and (2) The 50 Bid Pack gets 25 extra bids, so you get 75 bids if you buy the 50 bid pack.

Shipping costs are important. How much is shipping for won auctions?

Shipping is free!

How is BiddyBomb different from other penny auction websites?

What makes us different from other auctions is our user experience and our site performance. Our site design is much more modern and mobile responsive compared to other sites, allowing users to use the site on different devices and screen sizes.  The site also incorporates a more modern technology stack, providing our users with a very performance and fast experience when bidding on items with very little latency between the browser and our servers.

Why did you decide to start a penny auction website?

I started this penny auction site for the same reason that I mentioned above: I wanted to provide a better user experience to my customers.  As an avid penny auction user in the past, I grew tired of the repetitive, out-dated design of the existing penny auctions, and I felt like it was time penny auctions got a make over!

Where do you see BiddyBomb going in terms of size, number of daily auctions, things you want to do better than other penny auctions, etc.?

I think biddybomb.com has the potential to become one of the largest penny auctions.  As more traffic comes to the site, we would scale the number of auctions linearly to support that new traffic, so users can still feel like they can win even though there are more people on the site.  I think we have differentiated ourselves from the other penny auctions with our site design and our site performance, and in our future I’d like to implement a ‘buy it now’ option and a ‘guaranteed win for new users’ option

    No good! I tried to purchase bids and kept getting an error message with my credit card. Tried again with two different debit cards, same error message. Customer service (which seems to be the founder, Trey) replied to my email stating that his vendor was refusing my card. My credit card just worked on HappyBidDay and my debit cards both have funds/work elsewhere as well. So I don’t know what the issue is, but I’m pretty disgusted.

    Literally no one on this site, easy to win. Not really items I’m interested in, but won this Tile Key Finder thing and a gift card to Longhorn. Site is easy to use, and doesn’t feel all spammy like the other big sites.

    this site is a rip off, I watched for a while and it looked like people were winning gift cards for 3 cents 5 cents, it was like WOW no one is on here, so i bough the 50 bid pack and yes got 75 bids, but how strange that when ever I got on a auction all of a sudden there was lots of other people on it, there is not timer clock so you cant tell how long is left on the timer to see what is going on, and any auction I did not bid on went for 2 cents 3 cents 5 cents but if I got on an auction like I said all of a sudden there were tons of people on it, I think this site is a rip off and I wish I had not waisted my money
