Before I start, I’d just like to mention that this is the second time that I’m posting this here. I’m new to the community, and actually stumbled upon it out of coincidence. I’m not quite sure where my post should go, and whether it is even allowed to ask for this kind of feedback around here. I apologise if I’m breaking any forum rules in my unawareness, please let me know and I will delete this post.
Me and a couple of buddies have been working on creating a platform for people to swap their used items, and we would love to get some feedback from you guys about the concept. The core idea is simple. Think of Trade Me, but users trade their items with each other rather than purchasing/selling them.
We know that there has been a lot of people trying to compete with Trade Me, and we know that a lot of those people have not been very successful in their journey. We are exploring a lot of different ideas in how we could approach this differently, and we need some feedback!
If you are interested in the buy/sell market in NZ and would like to voice your opinion, please take a look at the survey on https://goo.gl/forms/AHolXiCanNDfRvkw1 .
Any questions or feedback in comments is also welcome!
We appreciate your time, thanks!#1735535MrsQuilterMemberMember since: September 15, 2007

Buy and sell is a bit different from swapping and bartering, so the first thing is to make that very clear to users.
I’m not sure how far you’ve got – have you trialled it in any way?
People swap stuff all the time, so a feasibility study with a few salient questions would be a good start.
One big thing Trade Me lacks (one of many 🙂 is a WANTED section. So many time I and many others have wished to post a request for items we just don’t seem to be able to find but know someone out there will have it.
