Tradepal Makes Buying, Selling, and Bartering Social
Social Media Marketplace Features Hybrid Cash/Barter Offers, Introduces Giveaway Option
New York, NY (PRWEB) May 25, 2010 — Tradepal will be demonstrating a new approach to person-to-person web commerce based on buying, selling, and bartering with friends at this week’s TechCrunch Disrupt.
Tradepal introduces a “hybrid” online marketplace where members use money, items, or both, to trade with friends and friends of friends.
Users list items on Tradepal (www.tradepal.com) that they are willing to sell or trade for. Other members who see an item they like can either issue a Buy Now order at the Friendly PriceTM (listed price) or make an offer for whatever they think the item is worth. Offers can be cash, barter, or a combination of the two. Rather than following the traditional auction model, Tradepal facilitates negotiations between members using an electronic trading system and a live chat between members. (read the rest on PRWeb)
