Consumers Tout AuctionDrop's Reliability and Trustworthiness

FREMONT, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 23, 2005 -- AuctionDrop ( today announced that since inception in 2003 it has received more than 30,000 positive feedbacks on eBay® from highly satisfied customers all across the country. This milestone underscores AuctionDrop's position as one of the most trusted sellers on eBay. Top reasons cited by its customers for buying through AuctionDrop include trust, product quality, professional staff, careful packaging, prompt shipping, overall quality of service and incredible bargains.

"The quality of AuctionDrop's merchandise is better than standard eBay merchandise," remarked AuctionDrop customer, Kevin Creighton, of Campbell, Calif., who calls himself a member of the AuctionDrop "frequent buyer club," having bought televisions, camera lenses and jewelry through the company. "I've developed a good level of trust with AuctionDrop," Kevin explains. "Shipping is extremely rapid. And customer service -- when I need them -- has always been great. They're able to take care of whatever problem I have in just minutes. I like the fact that items are screened and tested. When AuctionDrop says something works, I trust them. I appreciate their honest descriptions and credibility."

A significant result of AuctionDrop's feedback rating is its high number of repeat buyers. AuctionDrop is also seeing its customer base grow dramatically month over month. This growth is attributed to expanded product categories now available through AuctionDrop including cameras, designer watches, flat screen monitors, iPods®, notebooks and plasma TVs. A rapid rise in consumer interest in these categories has prompted AuctionDrop to expand the categories of items it accepts for sale and makes available through its store on eBay.
