Proxibid partners with eBay for online auctions

OMAHA, Neb. – Omaha’s Proxibid has partnered with online auction site eBay to offer heavy equipment, industrial machinery and vehicles for sale. The company has 120 Omaha employees. It likely will hire additional staff later this year.

The move will give Proxibid a larger online platform to sell its items in a live auction marketplace. It also will give the company a wider pool of bidders.

Proxibid has hosted more than 85,000 live auctions, and the partnership will allow it to tap into eBay’s 155 million active buyers.

“We’re excited to expand eBay’s existing live auctions offering into the business and industrial space,” said Gene Cook, general manager of emerging verticals for eBay Marketplaces. “Proxibid is an established brand in the industry, and brings a wealth of experience in live auctions. This partnership extends eBay’s general marketplace offering in the Business & Industrial category, while providing Proxibid exposure to a global audience of 155 million active eBay buyers.”
