This company has a questionable marketing strategy which is typically a negative method of obtaining a profit by "appearing" to offer documents and information that might be of help however the "previews" that are shown are not nearly enough to justify a purchase decision. This is a bad thing because it is a negative option or also referred to under other descriptions where the buyer is forced to subscribe in order to see if the document they need is actually available. Another serious flaw is that many of these documents are open source and are freely available without having to subscribe and pay a monthly charge. I have not found using this service to be of value.

Auction zip is a company that is basically squandering its brand on an obsolete business model using obsolete software to show popups, (basic 1999 nag screen popups) they show rotating banner advertising, which is really not effective at all, because of the nature of the software they use to rotate advertising it is clear that the advertising is more important to auction zip than the real business opportunity that auction zip appears to be "unaware" of when You look at this kind of mentation you have to wonder just what they are "Thinking" they are focused on the wrong aspect of their business model, literally they are leaving millions just sitting on the table waiting for someone to come along with half a brain and paint in all the missing numbers from this incorrectly applied advertising model. Wow, what a mess and more importantly what a waste of a brand.

Tip for consumers: Hopefully Auction zip will begin to move in the right direction, it could be so much better, but from a B2C and B2B position its really difficult to see the value beyond a really obsolete 1999 type business.
