BuyNearMe is a streamlined marketplace for community-based local trading. Our market need is indicated by the abundant use of Facebook groups by over 11,000 college students for the same purpose-- to buy and sell items to classmates. We have found that solutions available: eBay, Amazon, Craigslist, are not suited for community-based local trading for various reasons. Network based trading promotes communal accountability and transparency, creating a safer, relevant, more trustworthy environment. Right now, we are focused on the college community, specifically Berkeley, but the ideas can be extended to any community, such as the workplace.
