Electronics e-tailer, Jackys.com, has teamed up with the forthcoming auction site, makook.com. Jackys.com will offer products for sale on makook’s ‘Center stage’ listing.

Buyers will be able to bid on makook for products like digital cameras, DVD players, video cameras and handheld computers. Once bid prices cross the minimum price set by Jacky’s, products will be sold to the highest bidder.

“We are constantly updating our facilities and adapting to changing market trends. We are already offering auction-type services for our business clients on Tejari.com and now we are targeting individual consumers through makook.com,” stated Ashish Panjabi, general manager, Jacky’s Electronics LLC. “Our association with makook further strengthens our strategy of embracing technology to serve customers better and reap business benefits.”

Makook, one of the winners of last year e-biz challenge from Dubai Internet City, is, in its own words, modeled on the US auction giant, e-Bay. It’s one of the first companies to be ‘incubated’ out of Dubai Ideas Oasis.

“Our association with Jacky’s will ensure a constant availability of quality electronic and IT products for auction on makook,” said Khalid Al-Tayer, CEO and co-founder of makook.
