A fictitious guy, whose name is (up to you), who just moved from City X to City B , to spend 10 months on an international students exchange program . One of the first things that this guy has to sort out is to buy some stuff for his new apartment ( furniture, kitchen stuff, a bike…) . In order to do so, he starts using several online resources, such as Facebook groups, Websites like craigslist, and some other local online sites .
He gets quite confused and lost by using so many different services. However, using [url removed, login to view], he eventually can find all he needs, by comparing the most suitable offers from the best sharing economy websites, all from one single platform. The focus of the story has to go on the guy, who was able to find affortable and reliable stuff, and could give some life to his new apartment and make it cozy, while saving time and money VS the hurdle of going through tons of different websites and agencies. Also important to mention that not only the guy ( the buyer) could sort out his problem out, but also the seller ( her name is up to you) , could list and sell things that she did’t need anymore and make some extra cash , that can be spent on her passions. ( a trip with friends for instance) .
