Recycler.com Provides a Safer and Superior Alternative to Buying and Selling Online
(Los Angeles, CA) August 24th, 2010. Recycler.com, one of the nation’s first classified websites and companion to the popular LA-based free classified ad magazine, announced the launch of its new, state-of-the-art, national classified ad platform. Combining advanced search features with continued emphasis on free, live user support, recycler.com provides a family friendly, safer and superior alternative for the buying and selling of all kinds of merchandise, from musical instruments to cars to puppies.
To provide buyers with nationwide listings and sellers with geo- and category-targeted advertising, recycler.com has partnered with a dozen online sites and 65 leading local and niche classified ad magazines across the United States to deliver local listings and enable sellers to post items online and in print, in and across local markets, nationwide. "Our local free ad model was so successful, we felt it was time to take it national, and to give buyers and sellers across the nation a better alternative to what is currently being offered in the online classified marketplace,” said Pam Johnston, recycler.com’s Chief Operating Officer. "We’ve retained recycler.com’s local content and feel, while providing users greater flexibility with expanded search options and state-of-the-art technology.” Recycler.com’s unique upgrades and differentiators include an interface that showcases items like no other classified site, with new features such as enlarged photos in search results, keyword highlights and seller profiles, advanced search technology to make it easier for buyers and sellers to connect, and live user support for a higher quality, more family friendly and safer online experience.
Half of all US online users have visited online classified sites, and on any given day, one in ten uses a classified website. Unlike auction or shopping websites, users of classified sites often conduct transactions in person, making safety an important consideration. Recycler.com seeks to provide a safer and more user-friendly alternative to other classified sites with live on-site support and the exclusion of the most unsafe categories.
"Setting standards and moderating the community to adhere to those standards is very important to us,” said Johnston. "We set out to build a classified experience that reflects today’s user preferences around search and delivers great results for our advertisers. Our new national website easily connects buyers and sellers to the products and services they want and need, whether they are in another state or just around the corner.”
With its wide assortment of merchandise and services from trusted businesses and private sellers, seamless integration of local and national audiences, unparalleled live user support, ease of use and concern for user safety, recycler.com offers a superior classified alternative to buying and selling items online.
Recycler.com is located in Sherman Oaks, CA.
