Nowadays, buying second-hand items at really low prices or selling your own products that you no longer use and that are simply collecting dust in order to make some money, is easier than ever. Whilst in some countries, apps of the likes of Wallapop are the in-thing, an app with which it's extremely easy to publish an advert showing what we want to sell or search for bargains amongst the thousands of adverts available.
A great alternative to Wallapop and similar apps.
And with an almost identical functioning, in certain European countries such as the UK, Italy or Germany, instead of Wallapop most people use Shpock Boot Sale & Classifieds App. Buy & Sell, an online shopping and selling tool that's very easy to use, with hundreds of thousands of classified adverts, and over 10 million active users all over the world. Therefore, it's impossible not to find what you're looking for.
How does Shpock work?
Once you've downloaded its APK to your Android smartphone or tablet, although it's also available for iPhone and iPad, the best thing to do is register via Facebook or an email. Although you can browse through the app without doing so, to make a purchase or a sale it's totally necessary.
Its name is a contraction of shopping and pocket.
If you want to buy something, just explore all the products on sale by distance (to find nearby bargains), flick through the categories available or simply search manually. If you're keen on something, tap its description to read more details and from there on you can ask the vendor questions about the item and even place a private bid.
However, if you want to get rid of an article, just upload a picture of the latter, give it a name, write a short description, choose the most suitable category, set the initial price of the produce, and hit the Sell button. Just sit down and relax, waiting for all the offers to arrive.
