What is it:
Tradera can be referred to as the flea market of the digital age. The app is for you if there is something you want to get rid of, or if you are looking for something unique that you probably will not find at a store. The app offers wide range from electronics to antiques and beyond.
How it works:
After creating the obligatory account, you can purchase products the quick way or bid for them. Tradera makes the bidding process as simple as it gets. Simply mark a product you are interested in with a heart and the app takes care of the rest of you. For example, it sends you reminders on how much time is left for a bid. But it gets better. You can enter the highest price you want to bid and Tradera then bids for the desired product for you automatically.
Just as at a traditional flea market, you can also sell your own products, either with a fixed price or through a bidding process (if you think that it will make you more money…). When someone bought your product you can use Tradera’s shipping calculator, or choose the pick-up option. Quick and easy.
One, people who are looking to buy. Are you looking for something you cannot find at a store? Do you not have time to hunt for it at a mall? Are you looking for a good deal? Maybe a product from a luxury brand, but from last year’s collection so that it is actually affordable? Use Tradera.
Two, people who are looking to sell. Is there some stuff that you just do not need anymore? Do you need a quick and easy way to make some money with stuff that is just lying around anyways? Use Tradera.
The app just saves you the time that it would take to actually set up shop at a flea market. You do not need to wait for the day the flea market takes place, hope for good weather so that a lot of people will show up, or negotiate prices. And you do not need to rent a truck and bring all the stuff to a flea market in the first place. Essentially, Tradera saves you time, money and effort.
You might ask: Why not just use eBay or Facebook Marketplace? Tradera is as close to perfection as it gets when it comes to apps that allow you to buy and sell objects. You can really tell that the developers payed attention to details in terms of making it as easy as possible. There is no other app in Sweden that gets the job done better than Tradera.
Tradera marks over one million users each week and the number keeps growing. In April of this year Tradera was able to mark the two best weeks it ever had in its 20-year history. CEO Stefan Öberg claims that this might be because people become more environmentally conscious. People realize the “need to become more circular, both from an environmental point of view and for economic reasons.”
The developers are also constantly working on new updates, including improvements to the newly implemented dark mode. Swedish App Scene is excited to see where the app goes next. One thing is sure, there is a lot of potential for growth in the e-commerce market and Tradera is heading in the right direction.
