I am pleased to announce the launch of "Disney Trading Post" (DTP): http://www.disneytradingpost.com.
What Is DTP
DTP is a classified ad site that allows you to buy, sell, and trade Disney Collectables and best of all, itís FREE. There is no charge for using the classified software at all. We do not charge the seller or buyer!
The site is dedicated to Disney and all of its fans. Our goal is to create a place that allows you the member to enhance you Disney memories and passion by making it easy to find the memorabilia that you are looking for.
How Does DTP Stay In Business
You may ask, "How does DTP make money to keep the site operating". We will have two revenue streams out the gate. First we will offer Disney-Centric banner ads* (banners for Disney related products). Second will be a donation page where people can make donations (totally optional).
* The banners will consist of 3rd party ads and sellers that want to make there ad stand out and are willing to pay for the banners (mainly this will be businesses that do large amounts of classifieds on our site).
What Inspired DTP
On my last trip to Disneyland in Feb 2006 my wife and I got carried away on collecting trading pins (to the tune of about $500+). After getting home I found that between me, my wife, and my son we had several duplicate pins. Excited to trade for pins we donít have I went to the internet to find a site that would allow me to trade my pins. Needless to say I was very disappointed. There was nothing out there that was Disney specific, inexpensive, and easy to use.
Well, since I am a software developer, I decided to do something about it. I worked with my wife to create Disney Trading Post.
I hope it will be the source of many happy memories. A place where you can go and find the Disney collectables you have always wanted.
How Can I Help
Like most Disney inspired projects DTP is an independent company that is making this happen with their own money, not investors, so it is you the site members that will determine the success of the trading post. So please take a few moments and look at the site and see what it can do for you.
We believe that DTP will be the greatest Disney classified ad site ever. With great services, free classified ads, and more, DTP is designed to allow you the member to increase your ability to collect the Disney memorabilia that you love.
