Dealingers brings "reverse auction" store to US
Dealingers has launched a US version of its web based "reverse auction" store that specializes in Apple products. Through the new service, customers can find auctions on numerous Apple products that slowly decrease in price as people join in on the auction. Each auction item is placed under its retail price, but also has a hidden current selling price that users can reveal by using dollar credits. These credits can be purchased from dealingers, or earned by sharing content across social networks and being active on the website.
