My brother, Spencer Carmona, has just recently launched an app as of last April. It’s called BZAR: a mobile market place where one can post a photo of whatever it is they want to sell and negotiate prices with consumers. How is this app different than market places like Amazon or Craigslist you may ask? The fact that it is mobile, have one being able to access this mobile market right in the palm of their hand, is what makes it unique, being the first mobile market place on the Apple Store. The way in which BZAR works is similar to the concept of Tinder: you can filter and select the mile radius of people around you. If you don’t want to travel too far, you can choose no more than 20 miles, whereas if you are willing to travel quite the distance, you can choose 50, 60, even 100 miles. Once you got that mile radius part down, you can start selecting which products you’re looking for: a camera, shoes, watches, guitars, etc. and swipe through the pictures. If you see a product that you like, a vintage camera for example, you can “heart” it, and a chat will open up where you and the seller can start speaking and negotiating prices. Once you and the seller come to an agreement, you can pin-drop a point where you would like to meet up, let’s say Starbucks for example, and meet there in a public location.
The app is free and it’s pretty neat! So if you’re looking to sell something that you’ve been meaning to sell for a while now, and you’ve just been too lazy, BZAR makes it real simple for you. Download BZAR!
