the other day i wrote about the social networks my wife has setup/belongs to. i mentioned the 'qcbay' sales aspect of one of them. i'll say that i'm an avid ebay user and occiasional craigslist lurker...but this time i decided to try out the wife network system of QCBay.
i had an imac i wanted to sell (powerpc one). my wife walked me through the instructions (read:rules) of listing something in her network...i did it under her name of course. look at the timestamps on the mail.
the first (10:01am is my message sent to the network). the second (10:12am) is the sale. well, to be fair, the third (10:34am) is the final approval of the sale. the second note was a message of 'does it burn DVDs? if so, i'll take it' so i'm counting that as the sale.
holy crap -- 11 minutes to a sale of a reasonably priced item (meaning it wasn't cheap). i wonder if craigslist can beat that. i was shocked. i was actually on the phone when i put in the email and also noticed a bunch of call waiting calls popping in from my wife's friends...i discounted them as just chatter. however, after checking the messages, in the first 15 minutes of the email, 3 others had called and wanted to buy it. impressive, qcbay, impressive.
