Buy : Sell : Rent : Trade , anything and everything priced from $1 to $9 across the world.
Project in a Brief: Developing a web platform that supports the world to Buy : Sell : Rent : Trade anything and everything priced from $1 to $9 around the globe.
This fun marketplace will service a wide audience of buyers, sellers, service providers, and will serve as a hub for small transactions that might otherwise be overlooked in a traditional online marketplace.
While this platform available to virtually all web-savvy consumers, but our target audience will be those consumers and sellers who are currently under-served by mainstream online selling sites.
With a focus on small transactions, we anticipate strong interest from home based businesses providing inexpensive products, trading transactions among collectors, freelance workers offering simple and quick service, and individuals who wish to sell items that otherwise might be considered ‘too cheap’ to list online.
The Product or Service Seller / Providers:
The platform is aimed at providing a source of revenue for moderately par time income seekers to currently unemployed, stay at home moms (or dads), retired seniors looking to supplement their retirement income and to help individuals and small businesses an opportunity to grow.
The Product / Service Buyers:
The platform is aimed at providing services to anyone limited by a small (or nonexistent) budget, and to market inexpensive items and services offered by those willing to work and sell within a limited pricing structure.
What Kind of Product & Service?
There are many products and services that vary in pricing, depending on location and economic strength. The 1 to 9 platform helps to bridge the gap between these varying markets and locations, allowing anyone to access inexpensive products and services, no matter their location.
Services may include something as simple as advice and guidance, and can be viewed as a providing a helping hand to someone on a limited budget. An expert offering their advice or services for a maximum price point of $9 allows individuals and businesses to access great knowledge and experience with minimum expense.
1 to 9 provides the opportunity for people from different countries to market their small products, professional services, advice, or special talent, and to showcase their offerings online.
A small business owner or a new product license can sell their product at a nominal price to increase their brand awareness and market buzz.
There is a huge market demand for the kind of products and services that every one need to earn some bucks online and this project helps them greatly to live and achieve their dreams come true.
