Kyozou Announces Plans to Integrate Bidtopia

Toronto-based online auction and e-commerce management solution, Kyozou, announces plans for full integration of its online auction technology with Bidtopia. Currently, Kyozou’s tool works with eBay, Amazon and Overstock, among others.

“We have had numerous requests for Kyozou to support alternate marketplaces and our partnership with Bidtopia is our first effort to meet this demand,” explains Larry Velman, Director of Customer Relations at Kyozou. “It empowers merchants on both sides to greatly expand their reach to consumers.”

Kyozou provides a web-based interface for large volume sellers to describe, list and manage the sale of their inventory across various online sales channels. Currently supported channels are eBay, Amazon and Overstock, with Bidtopia joining this spring.

Using Kyozou’s technology, online sellers have complete control over their product sales on several marketplaces from one application, including the ability to sell items in their own private marketplace or website. The tool will support all three of the current Bidtopia formats – traditional auctions, inverted auctions and fixed price.

This integration makes Kyozou the first software partner of Bidtopia. Kyozou’s technology is expected to be available to Bidtopia users in May 2009.
