BizFinity Inc., an e-commerce ASP (application service provider), plans to offer integrated auction management services from CommerceFlow Inc., the companies announced last week. Under the agreement, Bizfinity will offer its small-business customers the CommerceFlow services as part of BizFinity's new Web auctioneer module.
The module allows small businesses to conduct simultaneous auctions through large auction sites such as Amazon.com Inc. and Yahoo Inc. Small businesses can use Bizfinity's Web Auctioneer to aggregate data from many auction sites in one location. When users want to buy something, Web Auctioneer allows them to find the item and the lowest price on multiple auction sites, then manages their bidding and payment to complete the transaction.
The module is tightly integrated with CommerceFlow's Auction Monitor and, when used with Bizfinity's Web Order Manager, allows automated shipping, inventory management, order processing, returns management, and auction-monitoring services.
