Slumping eBay Sales Drive The Dallas eBaybes & eMales to Invite New Venues to Dallas Meeting

The Dallas eBaybes & eMales ~ the largest active eBay group in the nation ~ welcome eBay Rival OnlineAuction.com to monthly meeting Monday, November 24thth, 2008


OnlineAuction.com (OLA) CEO and Founder Chris Fain, Reliabid co-founder Mohamed Ramzi Ismail, and OLA-Radio's David White are guests of The Dallas eBaybes and eMales November 24th. This brings together a fastest-growing online auction site with the largest group of eBay sellers.


Dallas eBaybes and eMales is a group of online auction professional sellers formed by Stephanie Inge in 2005 to help sellers grow their businesses. As their site says, "You can build a company faster, easier, and more successfully if you’re part of group serving your industry, community, or local entrepreneurs." Group members have a strong work ethic and are public-spirited with the stated aim to be positive influences in their communities. This dovetails with OLA members' philosophy, with individuals who actively work to aid each other with their businesses and benefit the communities in which they live.


OLA is the online action site which offers members unlimited selling for the low membership rate of $8.00 a month with no listing or final value fees. It also is a true auction in which a last minute bid automatically extends the time of a classic auction to allow for an answering bid. Founding Members may open their own "My OLA House" - their own eStore, free for the first 12 months. Also offered is the lowest ever price for the services of Reliabid, a company which ensures that online auction sellers eliminate non-paying bidders and receive payment for their transactions.


Dallas, Texas has the largest eBay Seller's Group in the country! Our eBay Sellers Meetup group has over 350 members who meet monthly to learn more about selling on eBay and other venues, and how to further develop our ecommerce business.
