OAKLAND, Calif., Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Wigix (www.wigix.com) today announces that they are the third largest multi-product database on the web. Wigix has surpassed Overstock.com and Walmart.com in number of SKUs in a multi-product database (Source: Internet Retailers Top 500 Guide 2009 Edition)
Wigix currently has 3.5 million SKUs and denotes exponential growth from the 400 thousand SKUs during its public beta launch in June 2007. This milestone marks a clear path to becoming one of the Top 5 Product Catalog within one year and the largest single product catalog within 3 years.
In addition, Wigix has experienced exponential growth in sell orders; currently holding 1 million open sell orders. Each sell order listing signifies one or multiple items available to buy from its member-base. These accomplishments are coupled with matching, record growth in monthly completed transactions and memberships.
"eBay's unique users have fallen 36% since January 2007 (According to eBay Monthly Unique Users, rough estimate data from Quantcast). eBay continues to drive away its users with frequent increased pricing and policy changes. Our exponential growth is a clear indicator that Wigix is providing a better solution to the sellers and buyers who are migrating away from eBay," said Steve Young, Wigix's Senior Marketing Manager.
