Hands down one of the most popular and perhaps the oldest selling platform has been Craigslist. Craigslist is an excellent place to sell items you don’t want to own anymore and make some decent money out of them. This includes all kinds of things – even cars and real estate. But there is one huge drawback of Craigslist – it doesn’t have its own dedicated app and is only available to PC users. With the growing use of smartphones in our world, it seems only natural that people would want to shift to an app that allows them sell their unwanted items. Meet Letgo – an app where you can sell just about anything in an easy and simple way and all on your smartphone.
Letgo is a brilliant shopping app that has been gaining quite the popularity in recent years. Although not available in all countries, Letgo has managed to accrue a dedicated user base. The app is for people who wish to sell items they own by placing a reasonable price on it. It’s also an app for people who want to invest in a more affordable albeit used product and satiate their online shopping cravings. So how does Letgo work anyway?
From a buyer’s perspective, the app needs to be first downloaded with an account made. You can create an account through your Facebook ID, your Google+ account or your email address. Once the account is successfully made and confirmed, you can begin to browse the site and search for products you wish to buy. The listings of products are well filtered so you won’t have a hard time navigating around the app to find what you’re looking for.
If you’ve located a product you want to buy, the next step is to communicate with the seller in question. The interesting thing about LetGo is that it does not manage any finances. The buyer and seller directly manage the finance processing and the app does not charge any commission from the buyer either. What the app basically does is bring the two parties together so they can communicate and trade.
Communication is a simple process: the chat feature allows users to discuss and negotiate on the price and quality of the product. Then they decide on a place to meet up so the item and money can be exchanged.
Meeting up with the buyer is where things get shady and where you need to tread carefully. There is absolutely no way to know of the buyer’s motive through the app chat. There is no security. It’s important to never share your personal address with anyone on the app and it’s equally critical to decide on a safe place, one that is not remote, to meet up so the trade can take place.
Letgo is an intuitive app with a breezy UI design and few technical errors. It allows buyers to upload pictures of their products when they sell them. It allows all kinds of product categories to be sold on its website. So if you’re looking for a new piece of furniture, an iPad or even a house, you might want to check out the listings on Letgo.
Letgo is completely free to use with few in-app purchases that do not hamper your shopping experience.
Letgo is an exciting shopping venture – one that offers a lot of opportunities to both the seller and the buyer. However, there are a few security concerns that should be handled more strictly by the owners of the app.
