The company has added the ability for sellers to customize their winning bid notification with their own specific information. According to is again making waves in auction technologies. The Mac-only auction service has released the new free Personal Response service for bidders and sellers!

AuctionMac Personal Response helps ease the end-of-auction blues. Before, end of auction e-mail alerts consisted of nothing but standard information. The result was a game of e-mail tag between the bidder and the seller in order to verify the basics. Now, allows users to create their own personal response text based on category and bid or sale status. Users can quickly and easily get the basics out of the way, making transactions smoother, faster, and more reliable.

The Personal Response system makes the entire auction process easier. Users can better protect their reputations by being sure that their response has gone out, and never worrying whether or not they contacted this bidder or that seller. Going out of town? Users can prepare messages beforehand and have the bidder or seller know exactly what's going on once the auction closes... Days in advance! And responses can be created for both wins and sales, with different responses for different categories! It's an all-purpose system that benefits both sellers and bidders alike. And it is completely free to all users. is continually enhancing services for all users. With this new system, we aim to provide better service and ease of use for bidders and sellers of Macintosh hardware and software.
