eMass-ePier's Managed Auction System
In addition to the many other services that ePier offers, ePier is happy to spread the word about eMass, its managed auction system. Via eMass, ePier will provide the consumer with a turnkey auction website for their own personal use.
Features include free domain and image hosting, unlimited members and auctions, and five email accounts. There is no cost to use to list auctions, but you can charge users a fee to list their items.
With this ready made infrastructure, you can start your own online auction business, or valuable revenue-making addition to your existing website, with the confidence that you have an online auction expert behind you and supporting your efforts.
You need no special hardware or software to maintain an eMass auction. Further, an eMass Auction is not meant only for businesses with large websites. eMass frequently creates auction solutions for both small businesses and even sole proprietors.
eMass will custom design the auction website to meld with your existing website, to make it appear a seamless part of your existing website.
There are a variety of price options tailored to meet the specific needs of the auctioneer.

ePier Accolades-Straight From The Message Boards
|11400 - Another refugee finds a new home! - By ElysianFields - Posted on: 2/10/2005 5:33:31 PM|
I've been checking out various alternatives to Feebay, and I think I've found myself a new home here at ePier. [warm fuzzies] I've been a trader on "that other site" from the beginning, before they had user IDs, before the corpie giants took over to squeeze out the little guys like me. The ONLY way to break the monopoly is to create viable competition, and I hope we can do it here. I plunked down my commitment for the first year (which I'm sure will pay for itself in no time!), I sure hope to see the commitment returned - something I've come NOT to expect from the other guys.
If I can get a handle on the listing process, I hope to close my E store before the rate hike kicks in.

Hello, I too am a defector. Just getting the "feel" for this site. So far it has been easy and I am thrilled to try something new. I have been with the competitor for four years, but with fees inclining profits became non-existent so it was time to try something else. My FeeBay store will close 2/13. Great to be here!

ePier-A Cure For The Winter Doldrums
During this time of year, many of us get weary of the sun setting earlier, being cooped up inside of the house, and weighed down by heavy clothes. ePier has some solutions to make the most of your time spent indoors.
For the Kids and the Rest of the Family.
It can be tough on kids not being able to ride their bikes, go to the playground and do other recreational activities outdoors. ePier has some excellent alternatives to hours spent mindlessly in front of the television set. How about some educational software? There is software for every interest and skill level-- from history to geography, foreign language to phonics. Parents can be educated as well--from virtual bartending to horoscopes, to desktop publishing. Software can even be enjoyed by the whole family--how about working together to compile a family tree? There are a whole plethora of cookbooks to appeal to every palete. What better way to spend a blustery afternoon, than filling the house with the aroma of a delicious concoction to be shared together?
And what about a board game? You know, those things that you used to play with before video games took the world by storm. Your humble editor has been meaning to learn to play chess for years--don't procrastinate the way she does. Clue, Battleship, Candyland, and Monopoly are all available at your fingertips. They've survived the test of time for a reason, share them with your family.
Do you have a budding artist in your family? Use this time spent indoors to cultivate this interest/talent. ePier has a variety of books available to learn about the various arts. Once you've pored over them, and determined what piques your interest, you need go no further than ePier to obtain the tools you need to get started. Beading, metalwork and leather craft, needlepoint and scrap booking, ceramics and candle making---you are limited only by your imagination.
For The Home.
When you spend enough time hanging around the house, you start scrutinizing every nook and cranny, and noticing what needs to be done. With ePier, you can get started immediately.
You don't need to expend a lot of time or money to give your home a fresh new look. A strategically placed new lamp can shed a whole new light on things, if you'll pardon the pun. A new throw pillow can also spruce things up. From funky Austin Power shag to Amish quilting, to Bohemian beading and sumptuous velvet, ePier has something to suit your decorating scheme. My beloved little Maltese dog Keegan is a valued member of the family--he deserves to lounge in style as well. I spotted an elegant metal poster bed for him, complete with leopard upholstery, that I have my eye on. I am also considering a 3 piece pewter dog picture frame set (there's an equivalent for cat lovers as well) for either home or the office.
If you are inspired to do more industrious home renovation, ePier has everything you need to make it happen. Floor tiles? We've got you covered. From saws to power drills, paint brushes to screwdriver sets--with a click of a mouse, you'll soon be ready to roll up your sleeves and make Bob Villa proud.
Stay warm and have fun!
