User Testimonials

  1. I made my decision because I had always been concerned about future prospects and the changes that would be taking place in distribution. After I started making shipments to this market, I was pleasantly surprised because greater amounts than I had expected were being sold. The commission and handling fees charged are low, and I am extremely satisfied.

    (Flower grower / Tokyo)

  2. Even if I am unable to ship large amounts to this market on a continuous basis, it still leads to stable sales because I participate in web-based sales toward many retailers where I provide shipment information in advance. It has also become easier for me to grasp retailer trends on what kinds of items sell well.

    (Flower grower / Okinawa Prefecture)

  3. Even as shipment-related transportation conditions become harsher every year, Aucnet helps because it covers the individual delivery to rural areas. That means that I can increase our fans for each region.

FAQ

  1. What makes ba*net different from shipping my products to other flower markets?

    We do more than carry out auctions online—we also handle deliveries to the buyer. That makes us a market that has the wide participation of buyers from different locations. This helps prevent regional differences in market prices, which can tend to occur in regional markets.

  2. I am worried that you may not sell my products adequately. How do you go about product sales?

    We offer enriched web-based sales, which make systematic sales possible.
    We proactively offer not only two-day-advance sales but also negotiated transactions, order-based sales and other sales methods.

  3. How do we make the shipments to ba*net?

    Please send us shipment information in advance by fax or E-mail.
    The shipment should then be sent to our distribution center in Urayasu City, Chiba Prefecture. Our sales representative will provide you with the details.
