Omanbay.com


Seems like we have someone who wants to compete with Ebay..

A new online company has been set up under the local name of Omanbay by Omani, Jordanian, and British investors.

As the sites states:

Omanbay.com has been created as a resource for the multi-national community in Oman to use to trade with each other for fun and profit.

Our aim is that everyone in Oman can benefit from trading on Omanbay.

Interesting, seems promising!~

sensation said...

Now this is something interesting indeed! :)
And I do agree with pyr, it sounds promising.

I was just wondering, wouldn't ebay.com sue them for stealing the "bay" out of their "ebay"?!! Can they do that in the first place?

Solafa said...

I have the same Q as sensation.

Did they ask for a hsare trade name from the Ebay people?

they should have something in their web site that confirms that [at least]...

Per Your Request:

It seems so but it hasn't picked up yet. I read about it in theweek.

Sensation & Solafa:

The online company had filed for its own copyright protection as I had noticed a few days earlier, so clearly - it's legit.

Sleepless, the company has successfully applied for a registered trade mark (not copyright!). However, because EBay is not a registered TM in Oman, anybody could come and register a similar TM, unless if EBay comes here and sues this company claiming that EBay does have a reputation in Oman and that people would in fact confuse it with this new website.

This website has been online for a while, I'm sure it I've seen it at least several months ago, it has not picked up.

Businesses would be able to get an Omani e-payment gateway soon, the ITA is working with Bank Muscat and Mastercard to get it out. The e-transaction legislation is also in progress and should be out soon. When these two are out, we might start seeing some new proper online businesses. (Or just hope we do).

Have a look at www.muscatads.com - Buy and sell for free in classified adverts format. No bidding -so not exactly like omanbay, seller sets his/her price and places free advert.
