2Trade is a simple and efficient app to trade your new or used items with others nearby, localised or even globalised for FREE, which is no administrative or advertisement fee will be charged. Yes, GPS is surely embedded to locate your location while uploading products BUT this can be turned off. You can take the product photo or open from your phone’s gallery when clicking the “Camera” icon, different currencies can be chose after entering item’s name. There is no limitation to the amount of items uploaded by an account. Users can upload a bunch of items when they are free and group some under the basket of “offline”. Then they can move few offline items to online day by day according to their preferences or tactics. Push notification will be shown once messages received in the real-time chat.
Innovation and Creativity
To some extent, “convenience” is an important element to make the trade successful. Founder of 2Trade, who is a typical Hong Kong person, bear in mind the concept of “Time is money”. Adding GPS function into 2Trade flashed through his mind one day. The locations of sellers will be shown on the map while uploading the products and buyers can locate the interesting items near them from the map. Hence time and cost can be saved efficiently and conveniently. Of course, sellers can hidden their location at setting flexibly.
PRIVATE real-time conversation
“I want to buy this item, please contact me at 6xxx xxxx.” When a deal is going to be successful, exchanging contact information for face-to-face transaction is necessary. “How to avoid buyers’ personal information being disclosed to the public?” Our founder concerns this seriously so he embedded a PRIVATE real-time chat function. Buyers can ONLY read their own text conversations with sellers, i.e. they cannot read the messages left by other buyers. Therefore, exchanging phone no. is not a must on face-to-face transaction because they can contact each other by this real-time function similar to Whatsapp. This private corner facilitates the trade between buyers and sellers.
Optimising Information Technology
Every IT products are influential to people. However, digest and utilise different IT products and develop another app or products is the way to optimise IT. We make us of Internet, mobile devices and GPS Location Service to construct 2Trade. This app is still under development but more ideas and technologies will be added to optimise this meaningful and useful application in order to pay an effort to advance Information Technology.
Benefits and Impact
Do you have an experience on buying same type of items all the time? Clothes, bags, books, cups…..One day, you are awake and realised you have wasted too much. You may be unwilling to throw away or donate them to others. Why not give yourself a chance to re-sell them to the people who love the items? This concept should be encouraged and spread out by everyone because it help reducing waste and saving our earth.
As a user, we understand the essential of user interface design including look and feel, style and user-friendly. In addition to the function of an app, we design 2Trade from the angle of users. People have already faced too many complicated matters a day, so just “release” them and make everything to be clear, simple and comfortable and of course take the user interface design seriously. You will feel the heart and quality of 2Trade when you use it to sell your first second-hand or new item to someone in the world.
