Press Release:-

'Eyebay' offers way to trade unwanted items

An 'opticians e-Bay', enabling practitioners to buy and sell second-hand optical goods, has been launched this week by a Bolton Specsavers partner.

The venture which is independent of the multiple is the brainchild of Mark Barclay, whose aim is to help colleagues who wish to sell their unwanted stock and enable students to save money on textbooks.

'The idea came about after I realised how much students starting out need to spend on their textbooks,' he told optician this week. 'And the fact that others who have been in the profession are hoarding unwanted, but valuable products.

'I'm trying to help people in the profession help themselves, by saving some money and by making some as well.'

The website opticalmarketplace.co.uk is billed as an online trading platform for practitioners to sell second-hand optical equipment and practice items. Included are discounted new items, ex-demonstration stock and other users' second- hand equipment which can be bought at 'fantastic prices'.

With equipment items the price can include delivery and in some cases warranty and installation. 'The price you see is the price you pay including VAT,' the site claims.

Those who want to buy follow a simple checkout basket process before deciding how to pay. The site is updated daily and additional information on advertised items is available via an advert code.

Advertising old equipment is free, including loading photography to publicise it, and if it sells there is 'a small fee to pay'. Items which do not sell incur no charge.

In his publicity for the launch Barclay, who nicknamed his project 'eye-bay', has said: 'I have had a practice for 10 years and in that time I have recognised, through colleagues and friends, there was no support infrastructure available for students making their first purchases; buying new books and equipment seemed to be costly.

'Fellow practitioners hoarded surplus equipment hoping for a better deal than part exchanging. Clearly students can now source books and equipment cheaply, and practitioners can turn their surplus goods into cash. Opticalmarketplace.co.uk is a website for all to use, and for all to benefit from.'
