Yumani takes the opposite approach of eBay, allowing customers to sit back while retailers bid on the lowest price to sell at.

As the old saying goes, there is strength in numbers. Recognizing this from a retail standpoint, hotelier Henry Zilberman created Yumani, a site that allows consumers to band together to request the products they desire at reduced prices. The real kicker, the more consumers join together and request a product, the bigger the discount they receive.

Allowing buyers and sellers to join for free, anyone can use the site to make a sale, or purchase a product. Prices are reduced as the buyers compete for the sellers business, and the lowest product price wins the bid. Consumers are also given the  option to ‘Yunite’ in a bulk-buying request, purchasing discounts are applied according to how many Yumani consumers Yunite on one given product.
