UK entrepreneur Mike Bell launches ‘findThat’ connecting private sellers, charities and businesses via a cool easy to use mobile platform.
Mike Bell has launched a unique new app to rival Shpock, Gumtree and Letgo. The ‘findThat.app’ offers local charities a free platform to list items for sale digitally, and it will connect communities around the world with local news, events, business and services.
‘findThat’ aims to be the ultimate app to find anything local. Mike said: “I came up with the idea in late 2017 and decided to start building the app for the UK market with the vision of becoming a global download. With the growing need for people to sell unwanted items locally, with a focus on recycling, it was obvious which way ‘findThat’ needed to go.
It’s a much easier way of buying and selling with no delivery fees.” He added, “Having a UK company taking on Shpock, which is Austrian, and Gumtree, which is owned by eBay, means it is important for app users to experience first-class service and usability. A global rollout of ‘findThat’ will soon start working its way across Europe, America and other countries around the world.
Mike continued: “By the end of 2020 the ‘findThat’ app will be available in many more countries, and in all native languages and currencies, to allow people globally to sell locally. Adding a new location and currency to the app is quick and easy. We can even launch a new location and currency every day, without users having to update the app.”
‘findThat’ also has plans to allow transactions to take place within the app itself, but at the moment it’s keeping everything face-to-face. Sellers can pay to boost or feature their listings, and Trade / Agent memberships will also be available.
Mike said: “We studied reviews of apps like Gumtree, Shpock and Letgo, and saw the issues their users were most unhappy about. Those problems became the top priority for ‘findThat’, and when they were solved, we worked on everything else. We’ve now created an ideal, fun and secure way to sell your stuff locally, no matter which town, city or country you live in.”
