AuctionSHARK Announces Online Auction Comparison Site

One-Stop Shopping for Online Auctions & Other Popular Online Merchants! Start-Up Website Searches Over 70 Million Listings From eBay, Amazon, Overstock & Yahoo!

CASTLE ROCK, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 16, 2005 -- The Auction Shark, LLC (AuctionSHARK) has recently launched the beta version of its multi-site search component at www.auctionshark.com. Instead of jumping around to search various online auction and shopping sites to find what they're looking for, or to compare prices, buyers can now enter their search at AuctionSHARK and see live results from multiple sites in one place. The site currently returns listings from eBay (www.ebay.com), Amazon (www.amazon.com), Yahoo (www.yahoo.com) & Overstock Auctions (auctions.overstock.com). A number of other sites allow users to comparison shop various online retail merchants, but AuctionSHARK is uniquely targeting the auction aspect of online shopping.

The site, www.auctionshark.com, is focused on saving buyers time and money in their online auction searches. From collectors looking for hard to find items, to bargain shoppers looking for the best deal, AuctionSHARK is building the tools to make the process of finding specific items and buying from online auctions easier.

"The initial response to what we're doing and where we're headed has been incredible," said Michael Zak, a Principal at AuctionSHARK. "The best part is, we've barely scratched the surface on what we're going to be able to offer -- we're empowering the online auction shopper with tools they've not had before."

Additional features include watch and wish lists that allow users to save and share items from multiple shopping sites in one common location at www.auctionshark.com. Users can save and set their searches to run automatically so that they receive email notifications anytime a new match is found and there's also the option to receive item-ending reminders via email or cell phone. AuctionSHARK will continue to evaluate & add auction and shopping sites to the multi-site search, as well as additional buyer tools to continually improve the online auction experience!
