PRESS RELEASE: “RocketPoster Launches RocketPoster.ca, a Ticket Broker Listing Service for eBay Canada”
Saddle Brook, NJ (RocketPoster) March 4, 2011 – RocketPoster, an ecommerce solution designed for ticket brokers to simplify the selling and distribution of tickets on eBay, has arrived in Canada. Today, it announced that RocketPoster.ca, a new version of its flagship product, is now supporting eBay Canada (eBay.ca) and the Canadian marketplace. RocketPoster.ca features true multi-currency support for both the Canadian and U.S. dollar, seamless integration with FedEx Canada and enhanced tax logic to support the collection of goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax (GST/HST).
“We’ve integrated with eBay Canada primarily because our existing broker clients have asked for it. This new version of RocketPoster allows our Canadian brokers to market directly to their domestic (Canadian) buyers, while still allowing them to market to U.S. clientele via eBay.com,” said Brian Hampel, Founder and President. “Since launching our eBay listing tool in May 2010, our business model has been to provide innovative technology that will allow our ticket broker clients to save time, to sell more inventory and to provide the necessary automation for them to leverage eBay as one of their primary distribution channels – and this new product is another pioneering integration in line with our corporate vision.”
Rick Koning of See It Live (Ontario) said, “We’re pleased to see RocketPoster taking this strategic initiative to meet the needs of its Canadian broker clients. As an early adopter of RocketPoster’s Canadian eBay listing service, I finally have an automated listing tool that will allow me to market to my local buyers.”
For the first time, RocketPoster is providing an eBay listing service for ticket brokers that is fully integrated with eBay.ca (eBay Canada) in order to market directly to Canadian buyers.
The RocketPoster Service for eBay Canada Supports:
-Ability to publish listings in either Canadian or U.S. dollars
-Ability to support the collection of goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax (when applicable)
-Ability to simultaneously market to U.S. clientele via eBay.com
-Order fulfillment processing that is fully integrated with FedEx.ca at discounted rates
This product is built upon RocketPoster’s innovative framework which includes the following features:
Seat-Rite Technology – Our own proprietary process to ensure that the correct legally licensed seating chart is displayed in the body of each listing for every venue, every event and every date. For a vast number of events, we design our own seating charts in-house to ensure they meet our quality control standards.
SeatData Integration – RocketPoster’s exclusive licensing agreement with SeatData increases listing appeal by automatically including section view photographs from over 150 Professional and NCAA sports venues.
Guaranteed Lowest Billing – Our innovative billing model allows brokers to reduce costs by using a “Usage Based” billing model during periods of high sales or a “Commission Based” billing model during periods of lower sales.
Multiple Templates & Rules – RocketPoster supports the ability to create multiple templates, all fully customizable. A template controls the look and feel of each listing, along with the appropriate shipping option. Templates are powered by our rules processing engine which provides unprecedented flexibility in mapping inventory files to templates.
AutoSync v3 with Double-Sale Protection™ – An industrial strength multi-threaded client-side application for synchronizing inventory files to RocketPoster (eBay.com & eBay.ca) and multiple marketplaces (e.g. StubHub, RazorGator, Vivid Seats, etc.). Double-Sale Protection™ (also known as “DSP”) takes action on eBay sales notifications by decrementing the sold quantity from the inventory file. Next, the DSP process will automatically rebroadcast an updated inventory file out to the various marketplaces in order to prevent a double-sale from occurring.
