VAYA Technologies Zimbabwe, a subsidiary of EcoCash Holdings Zimbabwe Limited, has re-launched BidBuddie, an online bidding platform that allows customers to bid and buy, auction and sell virtually anything to a large customer base.
The innovative online auction platform, which was initially introduced to the Zimbabwean market in 2019, has now been revamped in line with international technology standards, to make it easier and safer to trade.
VAYA Technologies CEO, Mr Givemore Jojo, said the new and improved BidBuddie guarantees buyers a safe auction experience on a large marketplace.
“We are delighted to unveil our new look online auction portal which not only simplifies the bidding process for our customers but reinforces our commitment to investing in our diverse and growing market,” he said.
“To ensure seamless customer experience we have zero-rated the application but put in measures to ensure only bona-fide customers have access.”
The platform offers a dashboard that facilitates buying and account management activities by enabling customers to bid in real time, receive notifications and view upcoming auctions and announcements.
The new BidBuddie enables individuals to sell any valuable items, while over 200 corporates can auction off old or zero book value goods.
Registered auctions also have the opportunity to auction their goods on the platform.
Added Mr Jojo:
“With the new and improved BidBuddie, anyone can introduce their products to a growing online community. Whether you’re a professional retailer or an individual with one item to sell, there’s no other way to reach millions of pre-registered, experienced online buyers than through our platform.”
