  • I suggested this in a (paper) letter two years
    ago to management to set up a web site. Pick the best
    of the best, and put it on the Web, set an account
    up with Fedex, and away the products go. Cash
    America is a NY stock exchange company with a long track
    record, people would much rather buy from them than some
    fly-by-night start-up. A lot of hard to move inventory in one
    location might really be hot in another location. Also
    with their international operations in Europe, that
    could be used as a base for sales on the net there.

    • Ive been told that PWN is about ready to move
      into Neb, has anyone heard anything about this, I cant
      believe that they would want a state like that, they have
      a 4 month holding time, and much lower interest
      rates. Anyone have any input, or heard anything ? By the
      way a company called USPN is also doing a web site,
      due to start some time this month, seems to be the
      way to go! Sure hope we get it soon.

      • They currently have a team of managers and
        long-time pawn shop people looking at the web very
        seriously. Biggest concern is the logistics of physically
        shipping the articles from individual locations. Test
        sales on ebay went great however with small items such
        as jewelry. Should be much-reduced turnover times on
        items which normally would set on shelves for months.
        They seem to be very paranoid about spending the
        money, however. Personally, i think that spending the
        money would increase the market cap on this company
        DRAMATICALLY. They only need to GET THE WORD OUT and thus
        change the model for their typical (buying) customer.
        Probably the best investment this company could ever make.

      • That Cash has agreed to list their items with the
        guys at BIDZ.COM any way that is what those guys are
        saying. I think the guys at USPN should go to an
        established site no one will shop theirs like the main

      • Check out First Cash on the Web. They have a
        fairly descent site. Look for many others to follow. I
        know EZ-Pawn is coming out with their E-Commerce in
        July August 1999. Check us out at
