PamConsult acquires AuctionFlunky

PamConsult has completed the acquisition of the AuctionFlunky platform. The new service is to be added to the eBay channel available today on Philips Net TV

(PresseBox) (Ebstorf, ) PamConsult GmbH has acquired all assets of AuctionFlunky. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Ever looked on eBay for something, could not find anything and then thinking why is there no option to save your search and to automatically receive a notification when the article becomes available? Well, AuctionFlunky does just that. AuctionFlunky is a web based service which enables a user to save a search item for eBay and once the item becomes available on eBay, a notification will be sent to the user so that the user can start to bid for it. This functionality provides an improved customer experience and ensures that a user never misses a new article.

“We are extremely excited about this technology acquisition and will soon enhance our TV based eBay experience with this new service” says Dick Schiferli, CEO of PamConsult.

PamConsult plan to include this function as part of the Jaast “eBay on TV” offering, currently available on Philips Net TV enabled TV sets. When using eBay on a TV, the normal PC environment is not available (it is not so easy to switch back and forth between the eBay channel on the TV and the programs to search for items). Thus the new functionality will make searching on eBay much more pleasant, simpler and effective.

During the transition, the AuctionFlunky website and internet service will not be available to new customers.
