We all love our Kijiji and Craigslist, but sometimes these generic marketplaces don’t quite cut it for niche items like baby toys or iPhones. Here are two nifty websites that offer a better buying and selling experience for parents and geeks.
Kiinzel, the parent marketplace, aims to serve as a classifieds portal where parents across the GTA can buy or sell new and/or gently used children’s products with people in their neighbourhood. Creating a posting is simpler than making a Kijiji post. Once logged in, create a posting with your title, description, price, location and optional photo. Other parents can then view your posting easily reply through the website. Kiinzel also lets users share posts with their friends on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Whether you’re looking for baby clothes, a baby monitor or a stroller, Kiinzel can help you find it.
Swappa is a website that allows visitors to buy and sell smartphones and tablets.Creating a posting is easy, and can be viewed by anyone across the globe. You can catageorize your device by carreir, brand and model. If you have an old iPhone, iPad or iPod in a drawer collecting dust, simply create a listing on Swappa and make some cash. You can buy and sell with confidence with a buyer/seller rating system similar to eBay. There are no seller fees, and no faulty devices. Considering it is a international market place, buyers/sellers are responsible for shipping fees, however the community is very friendly and also any seller is willing to make special arrangements for a serious seller. Swappa also features a free ENS/IMEI/MEID checker that let’s you know if your device or the one you plan on buying is on a blacklist.
