Not So Fast, Alibaba -- U.S. Company Announces Global Mobile Commerce Platform Is on the Way to Take on 11 Main, eBay and Amazon

New Marketplace "World Store" -- Coming Soon -- Will Accept Bitcoin, Offer Free Listings, More Transparency, Better Mobile Reach

NAPLES, FL--(Marketwired - Sep 16, 2014) - GGIS, Inc. today announced the coming of the next-generation world commerce trading platform, World Store, built specifically for the 21st century. Millennials and more will be able to buy or sell essentially anything -- new or used with ease. The platform has been in the works for over a year and is launching in private beta Spring 2015. It aims to become the largest e-commerce platform in the world, above eBay, Amazon and Alibaba's 11 Main, by making e-commerce more efficient, intuitive and mobile-friendly than ever before.

A key differentiator between World Store and its competitors is that World Store will focus on creating an unbeatable seller experience to attract more sellers and more inventory. For sellers:

  • World Store will not charge sellers listing or monthly fees. This means there is no risk for the seller to list an item. If an item doesn't sell, the seller doesn't pay anything. Instead, World Store will take five percent of the total sale only once the item is sold.
  • World Store will have the first-ever live mobile feed for an e-commerce app, where sellers can quickly list from any device without constantly refreshing or downloading a native app.
  • All listings will have the option of including videos, instant messaging and FaceTime, enabling potential sellers and buyers to talk face-to-face without using an additional application.
  • For sellers that don't want to handle listing or shipping items themselves, World Store will offer a service to list and drop ship items for them.

Buyers will find a better experience on World Store as well:

  • Unlike the other major e-commerce platforms, buyers will always know who they are buying from, whether it's a retail manufacturer or an individual.
  • The listings will be clean, fresh, and intuitive. There are no advertisements on the listings to clutter the interface, distract the buyer or compete with the product being sold.
  • Once the customer wants to make a purchase, they will proceed to a one-click check out system that will also allow the user to pay traditionally with a credit card or with Bitcoin.

"Given the fact that our sister company, DreamWare Inc., has developed successful e-commerce applications like Car Lister and World Lister for Millennials, World Store will be no different," said Bryan Harmon, CEO of GGIS. "We're going to be faster, cheaper, mobile and here to compete against 11 Main, Amazon and eBay."

In addition to the DreamWare developers, who created the most user-friendly interface in the market, for both sellers and buyers, the World Store team includes Marsha Collier, eBay expert and author of eBay For Dummies and other online selling books.
