It’s easy to be skeptical about an online business, especially if the business is a pay-per bid auction site. The very first question that comes to mind when I find a penny auction site, especially if the site offers a lot of items, is the site’s integrity and legitimacy. It’s good to be a skeptic and it’s very important to be alert and ask questions especially when it’s about a business that you’re considering giving your hard-earned money to. With that in mind, there are a few surprising things that most people get wrong about DealDash.
1. The first false notion would be that DealDash is not a real company.
While DealDash doesn’t operate live (in person) auctions, nor do they have brick and mortar storefront, this does not mean that DealDash is not a real business. DealDash is a real company. In fact, DealDash was one of the first businesses of its kind. Back in February of 2009 when penny auctions were in their infancy, DealDash launched first as BidRay, then later re-branded with their current, and much more catchy name: DealDash
. DealDash was founded by successful entrepreneur William Wolfram in Finland. While DealDash was originally based, and founded in Finland, today it operates in the US with offices in NYC and Minneapolis, Minnesota. William had experience in online marketing and wanted to take the knowledge he learned, his interest in game mechanics and discount shopping and offer a way to make shopping fun.
In 2013, DealDash reported having nearly 1 million users, 67 employees and $44 million in revenue in 2012 and has completed multiple rounds of funding to make what you see today a reality.
DealDash now operates hundreds of auctions each day and currently partners with Walmart who offers fulfillment of all auction and buy-it now items.
DealDash is a corporation registered with the NYS Department of State since February of 2012.

2. The products are not real.
Again, this claim cannot be further from the truth. Not only are the auction items real, the buy it now options are real and if you want to test it out I’d say buy an item that you need/want by selecting the buy it now option and let us know when you receive it. Because you will.
3. Real people don’t really win.
