The system that lets you buy an iPhone for pennies


Online retail is a very competitive sector at the moment with discounts being offered on most sites. However with penny auctions, customers can save up to 80% off the retail value by bidding in online auctions. The concept is simple; you purchase credits which you can then use to bid on auctions. If you are the last bidder then you win the product!

One of the most successful penny auction sites is This London based company started business in 2008 with products ranging from smartphones, tablets, laptops, household appliances and a wide range of other consumer goods with unbelievable discounts. A new iPad recently sold for £48.31, a brand new HP laptop for £28.76 and a PlayStation 4 for £22.89. Of course all products are brand new and come with manufacturer warranty.

How is this possible

The cost to participate in auctions (in the form of pre-paid credits) allows MadBid to sell products with up to 80% discounts. There are no reserve prices so it is possible for products to be sold for 1p, and we’ve seen it happen many times, and yes in that case MadBid does make a loss.

MadBid has continued to innovate the business modelno lose

Raising £4m in VC funding from the founders of Skype in 2010 has allowed MadBid to continually improve the service. MadBid recently launched a new feature called “Earned Discount” which allows users to pool money spent on bidding towards buying any product of their choice hence the No Lose Guarantee.   MadBid CEO Juha Koski says:

“It took us over a year to develop this feature but it was worth it to see how customers use our platform as a fun way to buy their favourite products. As far as we know, we are the only company in the world that are currently offering this way of shopping. Innovation is key…”
Juha Koski, MadBid CEO
