SYDNEY, Sept. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- On September 22, 2011 the domain www.creditcard.net sold for USD $138,000 to Australian company Pixel Capital Pty Ltd, owner of a financial comparison site network that includes www.creditcard.com.au and www.creditworld.com.au. With this purchase, Pixel Capital is broadening its portfolio and entering the US financial information web site market.
Based on data from industry news portal DN Journal, Pixel Capital believes the sale of Creditcard.net to be the highest global domain sale for September 2011, the second highest .net sale year to date (behind Cars.net which sold for USD $170,000 in June 2011), and the 27th most valuable global domain sale for 2011.
The Australian company's flagship brand Creditworld.com.au started as one of the first financial comparison websites in Australian in 2005 – and has gone on to become one of the leading sites in the category with more than 250,000 unique visitors per month across its network.
Pixel Capital Pty Ltd founding Director, Roland B Bleyer, said, "We're very excited to enter the US market with Creditcard.net. Our goal is to position the site differently to existing offerings with blog based articles and valuable information about reducing debt, improving your credit rating, achieving a better credit card deal – in other words, many of the issues important to Americans today."
Creditcard.net positions itself as "The Credit Card Network" featuring experienced financial industry and finance news writers updating the site with new insights every week. The site explains that with so many marketing messages been thrown around by banks, it's time to cut down the jargon and have real people provide regular, valuable insights on credit card advice, offers and opportunities.
