In 1997 the website "Web Bazaar" was launched, which eventually became "Global Exchange Technologies" in 2002. At the time eBay was getting very popular, and our initial offering was a simple auction platform which allowed multiple sellers to sell their own items. There were programs that could be bought, but being programmers, we had to have it our way or no way. So we built what we needed.
It was an exciting time back then. E-Commerce was in it's infancy, and all you had to do was make a web page offering a service and people would find you. Our main website at this time was "Strictly Exchange". By the time eBay went public in 1999, we were already offering the auction platform to individuals and companies for their own use. Our phones were busy with people thinking that they were going to start the next eBay. If only we knew then what we know now!
