Hi Sig.

Yes. Mobshop, 9 years ago. It was HQ in California and, unfortunately failed as it was a bit ahead of its time.

Since that time, I've seen 4 other plans that have attempted this, all prior to the China article.




Hi Rick, good to hear that you guys are on top of it!

Wow, 9 years ago... well, being early-early is certainly risky - duly noted and taken to heart of course ;)


During the dotcom, it was known as reverse auction.

So, if you fine tune the plan, and have a brick and mortar company offer the same thing, it will work better.

Though, one has to think how much cost savings would you get compare to buying from one of those megastores. (assuming it is a common commodity that you are buying).
