Email This Story to a Friend

AuctionBytes is conducting a survey to study online shopping behavior. As more small sellers and "mom and pop" merchants launch their own independent websites, it becomes critical to learn which factors help shoppers find and research products and make online purchasing decisions.

The survey takes a few minutes to complete and can be found online here:

We want as many people to take the survey as possible, so please tell your family, friends and colleagues, and post the link in discussion boards, where appropriate.

We will share the results of the survey in the January issues of AuctionBytes newsletters. Thanks!
