By providing such a unique, streamlined experience for collectors, sites powered by the DASH platform quickly gain the adoption and engagement of the community. By assembling a group of passionate consumers, DASH provides the most important thing that sellers want - good online access to the best buyers.
Collectors are unique consumers though in that they are also often casual sellers too. Most collectors can identify with the need to free up some room in their "collection room" or raise some extra cash to get their latest "must have" item. Because DASH has made collection management so simple for collectors, it also radically streamlines the listing process for these users too. With the item already online in their personal inventory, all the person needs to do is fill in the condition, upload some photos (especially easy with the DASH mobile apps), and type in the price for their listing.
DASH inherently fixes the "two ships pass in the night" problem that occurs commonly with collectibles ecommerce when buyers and sellers do not call an item the same thing. The item name is already set in the DASH Catalog. Likewise, utilizing the community-optimized taxonomy, the DASH Marketplace makes it simple and consistent for buyers to navigate to items of interest.
The DASH Marketplace safeguards both buyers and sellers by relying on trusted, popular transaction systems (e.g. PayPal). There is a built-in mechanism for buyer/seller feedback, and there is a private messaging system to provide a secure channel for buyer/seller communication. DASH gives sellers their own store and automatically supports combined shipping to encourage multiple item purchases. During the PayPal invoicing process, DASH automatically fills in the shipping labels and customs forms to streamline the selling process.
