There are some new developments with Pricebenders. This is important if you’re not a resident of the US and Canada. Several months ago Tripleclicks announced that they would only ship physical items to members living in the US and Canada. Those outside these two countries could only bid on non physical items or exchange their wins for a certain amount of bid credits.
Now Tripleclicks has announced that you can have the physical item shipped to a US address at no additional cost. So these are the options you have now for physical items;
- You can exchange your Pricebenders auction wins for more bid credits except if the auction was also an auction for bid credits and a few other items. If the you do not see the exchange offer for an item, it means the item is not eligible for an exchange. The item you won goes back to inventory to be auctioned later.
- You can exchange the item for a Gift certificate and then use that to buy the same item or any other of your choice from e-commerce stores from your or near your country.
- You can have the item drop shipped to your address by an online retailer like Amazon that has a branch nearer to your location. For example, Amazon has branches in Mexico, Italy, the UK, India and Japan among others. To just use the YCD (Your Drop Shipping) manager in your Tripleclicks members area.
- And of course you can have the item shipped to a friend or family member in the US or Canada.
So keep this in mind when bidding on a Pricebenders auction.
