Dear spax-ga. There is some suggestion that a properly incorporated company may be behind Sellerbox.com. However, in my view, there is a lack of openness which is sufficient for me to be very wary of the site. I have not looked at whether the scheme would work and its pitfalls. There is no contact information supplied on the site: no name, no address, no telephone number, no company details. It?s not until you drill down into the site does one find on the User Agreement page a reference to a Hong Kong company: Sellerbox.com Corporation Limited. ?This User Agreement (?Agreement?) is a contract between you (either an individual person or a single legal entity) and Sellerbox.com Corporation Limited (?Sellerbox.com), a Hong Kong Corporation.? http://pages.sellerbox.com/useragreement.htm A search of the Hong Kong corporations database shows this is a live registered company incorporated in 2003. Use the link below to obtain further information. CR No.: 0861521 Company Name: SELLERBOX.COM CORPORATION LIMITED http://www.icris.cr.gov.hk/csci/ As indicated below, the domain name registration is in a different name, address and country. The current record was created: 07-Dec-2005 and expires: 07-Dec-2006. No earlier record is available but this does not mean there was not one in the registrant?s name. http://whois.domaintools.com/sellerbox.com The User Agreement page also states that, ?Sellerbox.com is a trademark belonging to Sellerbox.com Corporation Limited.? I could find such trademark registration with the US or Hong Kong Trademark databases. http://www.uspto.gov/ http://ipsearch.ipd.gov.hk/trademark/jsp/main.jsp I hope this answers your question. If it does not, or the answer is unclear, then please ask for clarification of this research before rating the answer. I shall respond to the clarification request as soon as I receive it. Thank you answerfinder

Below is the information from allwhois.com. Since the website was set up just in June this year and expires in November 2007, not much can be said about the company. The site looks incomplete: under the "site policy" there is a heading "shipping policy", but no text. Also, when I searched with the site name, the heading was "coming soon", which sounds like it is not really up and running. It seems to be only a site where sellers can advertise their goods, apparently passing information from buyers to the sellers, who ship directly. The concept seems very naive, expecting both sellers and buyers to trust that they will get money, goods, respectively. I would not deal with sellerbox.com.
