WorthPoint Corporation on Wednesday announced an expansion of its partnership with Terapeak, a provider of eBay research and education. In addition to the data licensing agreement announced earlier this year, the two companies have teamed up to develop and market a new tool for eBay users.

Called Terapeak Collectibles, the new application provides unlimited access to WorthPoint's Worthopedia, a premier online antiques and collectibles database consisting of detailed descriptions, images and realized prices for more than 50 million unique items.

WorthPoint compiled this database from multiple sources including eBay, leading auction house listings, and online marketplaces. eBay users who subscribe to the joint Terapeak-WorthPoint service will be able to instantly obtain sales/price record detail on any items of interest plus gain valuable insight from analytics that will allow them to fully monetize collectible assets.

The offering was developed specifically for the eBay Selling Manager Applications platform utilizing WorthPoint's rich content and Terapeak's delivery channel. It is available on a subscription basis to eBay members, and it may be extended to other Internet-based distribution points in the future.
