Wagglepop pops its clogs
Auction site Wagglepop is to close at the end of this month; after failing to find a buyer for the site as a going concern, it will be reborn as a “a 100% affiliate-driven marketplace through affiliate partnership agreement with Amazon”.
Originally launched in 2005 in response to eBay’s hike in Store subscription and final value fees, Wagglepop has closed down before – the first time, just a week after launching. If anyone fancies overseeing its next incarnation, the site remains for sale at $40,000.
Wagglepop is the second auction site announcing closure this month, as Tazbar made a similar announcement a couple of weeks back.
