Markerbids.com is a Florida Corporation, founded and wholly owned by Michael Phillips of TechPB / Youtube fame. Michael Phillips is one of the most well known, & recognized paintball players in the world. He began playing paintball in 1988, played his first tournament in 1991. He has been heavily involved in the paintball scene since the early 1990's, and rose to massive fame in 2008 with the launch of the TechPB Youtube Channel. With over 147,000 subscribers, over 900 videos, and over 55 million video views, Michael Phillips is one of the most recognized faces in the industry.
Markerbids was originally founded in September of 2010 as a way for Michael to sell his used equipment he used in his videos, without having to deal with the hassles of forums, or the massive costs of Ebay. Since then, the website has grown into a massive community of over 38,000 registered users, and has sold over $2,000,000 in items since it's launch in September of 2010. Markerbids operates much like a "raffle", one person wins, everyone else loses their money. The idea of the penny auction business model, is to spread the cost of the item across multiple bidders, while giving the winner of the auction an amazing deal.
Our greatest promotion is the offering of "FREE WORLDWIDE SHIPPING" on all items we sell. No additional hidden fees, no additional costs, you pay the item's final price and your item is on the way! We regularly shipped items to Germany, Russia, South America, Mexico, Hawaii, Great Britain, Ireland, Sweden, Australia, England, Norway, Sweden, Hawaii, and anywhere else paintball is played. We currently spend over $30,000+ per year in shipping costs to our patrons.
Michael Phillips has resided in Tampa, Florida since 1996. He has an Accounting Degree from the University of South Florida, and takes great pride in running this business legitimately. While many other paintball penny auction websites have come and gone, Markerbids continues to be the standard by which they are all judged. We think you'll find this website to be an extremely fast paced, exciting, and addicting way to buy paintball gear. Buy some bid packs, and enjoy yourself!
