    Hi, Anyone familiar with the private sales shop idea. If not I will explain you here that this is the best strategy to sell your goods privately.
    It is basically opposite to the auction in which bids are submitted by the interested people for buying a product. A useful comparison of Auction and Private sales you can see here; http://www.magentopricing.com/selling-private-sales-auction-prestashop-one-better/

    So the topic today was private sales, in this technique, merchants can make a private shop category on their store, place the desired products in that category and allow the public to subscribe to that category.
    The category's products have low prices than their normal price so people love to join that category resulting in more sales.

    If the concept is not yet clear, you can check another resource to understand this concept : http://blog.templatemonster.com/201...hop-private-sales-modules-ecommerce-websites/

    So, the offer only gets routed to the ones who are registered with the ecommerce website? - Is there a minimum number of purchases to be made prior to get selected for the private secret group?
    How are they able to offer the high price at low?
    As the targeted customer base is definitely going to respond, what are the dimensions and metrics to track these?

    Thanks for taking interest in my topic. As you are asking for more tips about private sales, I have found a good example about private sales. http://www.fmemodules.com/en/69-private-sales-shop-prestashop.html

    Although this is for PrestaShop but you can get quick idea from it by reading the description and checking the demo. My purpose to give this link is that you can check front and backoffice and know practically that how private sales shop works.
