Discover the world's online barter marketplace and help us go one step further!
Two years ago, a simple yet not so common nowadays idea stuck in our minds: To create an online Barter marketplace! A community where anyone can trade goods and services in a simple, secure and user friendly space.
Myself (Yiannis Deliyiannis), George Karamanoglou and Michalis Pitsikalis, quit our day jobs and jumped into the abyss of the startup world!
On January 2013 tradenow was launched in Greece! A beta version with many ooops.. page not found! The whole project was at risk, technically speaking - because in terms of traction we signed on 5K members in our first 3 months!
We regrouped, brought into the team a Senior developer (Dimitris) and redeveloped - redesigned the platform! We didn't give up our dream: To become the world's online Barter marketplace.
Today, almost 8 months in full operation, our barter community: 20K membersand 400 companies have created a marketplace with goods, services and real-estate worth over €150ΜΜ.
With over 1,000 completed transactions valued at €500Κ, this barter community has helped thousands of individuals save money and hundreds of companies to build their network and utilize their excess capacity.
What we need & why
We need your support to take tradenow one step further towards our vision: To become the World's online Barter marketplace.
Specifically, we will use the funds to roll-out the platform in Europe & US and to develop a mobile application for our community.
