Imagine a dating site for your stuff: Joe needs a replacement water reservoir for his coffee maker; Jenny just broke her coffee maker (identical to Joe’s), but the water reservoir is just fine. But how would she know that anyone needs her reservoir? She might just throw it away.  Joe might toss the old, and buy a new coffee maker. That is an awful lot of waste. Somebody should make a site that takes care of that.

Then Ubokia hired me to check out their marketplace.

Sure, there are other marketplaces out there, but Ubokia allows buyers and sellers to connect with each other differently.  Browse through the “Wants” section. There’s sure to be a few items in there that you have and wouldn’t mind selling. The sale is driven by what the buyer needs, as much as what the seller wants to sell. That’s a different approach, and I like it.

We can’t have a garage sale where we live, but we have plenty to sell. We’ll be loading up the Ubokia marketplace with some of our no longer needed items, and I’m building a wish list of items I need as well. Maybe we can do business.

  • With uTrust, Ubokia is the safest way to buy online.
  • Buying through a blog marketplace means you are connecting with other like-minded people – making it easier to find what you want and in general your interactions are more pleasant than something like Craigslist.
  • Ubokia is easier for buyers because all they have to do is post a want and let sellers come to them. No more searching!
  • Ubokia is easier for sellers because they don’t have to wait to potential buyers to view their products. They can immediately connect with buyers.
