Deal forwarding is a process or technology that facilitates the exchange of information about bargains for merchandise. Within the IT industry, deal forwarding can help individuals and businesses buy and sell hardware, software and technical documents.
Deal forwarding is carried on through Web sites devoted to that purpose. Items can be listed according to device or product type, price, age, seller location and other criteria. Visitors or subscribers to the site can input tips and advice, offer items for sale or post notices for products wanted. Users can receive e-mail alerts or RSS feeds to keep themselves informed about the latest deals.
