Greentoe allows you to shop on your own terms by naming your own price for the products you want.
Greentoe is reinventing the way retail works by putting the customer in charge. Rather than having retailers set their own prices, the traditional process that forces customers to seek out the best deal or be forced to pay the most convenient price, Greentoe lets consumers set their own price. Users make an offer on a product through Greentoe, and the site immediately contacts its network of authorized retailers. As soon as one of the retailers accepts an offer, the order is processed and the purchase is completed. There is no extra charge for tax or shipping. If a user’s bid on an item is accepted, whatever that user offered is all that they’ll be charged.
There are plenty of services that offer comparisons of prices from various retailers, but none allow consumers to make their own choice as to how much a product should cost. Greentoe is truly a revolutionary way to conduct business between retail and consumers. It forces competition between sellers, driving down cost in order to serve the customer. Everything on the site is “guaranteed to be new, in the box, and covered by the full manufacturer’s warranty,” according to Greentoe’s homepage. The site allows users to make offers on items as diverse as musical instruments, camera equipment and home appliances. Prior to making an offer, Greentoe displays the average price of the item as well as the lowest price its found online. If you’re a fan of getting deals on the internet, Greentoe should be your preferred destination for one simple reason: you’re the one making the deals.
