Shopkeepers, artisans, designers and of course individuals will then be able quickly and easily to sell their products on Wallapop. Home clothes, video games, craft materials, cars... This e -commerce market allows you to see what products are near you.
Once the product is uploaded, it will immediately be visible to the people nearby. The interface is intuitive and the user is able to chat with the seller. The objective is to provide effective interaction between buyers and sellers, which will meet at the local area to do the exchange.
