Craigslist For Instagram Turns Social Photos Into A Viable Marketplace
Treasure trove of new items for sale on your social networks.
Every year, over 2 million pictures are posted to Instagram with the hashtag #forsale, which is exactly why Hashbag has created a service that makes it easy to search for and buy items from the social network. With different categories such as Art, Fashion, Furniture and Homemade, there are plenty of options for everyone.
Buyers can search for an item through the company’s website, and if the seller isn’t already a member, they will send you straight through to the person’s Instagram profile, making it easy for you to reach out and make an offer. If they are already a member of Hashbag, then you pay for the item using PayPal, making the whole experience an enjoyable and effortless process.
On the other hand, sellers just have to Instagram a photo with the hashtag #forsale, after which Hashbag will email to ask you what the price of the item is. Once you hand over that piece of information, the item will go live in a personal storefront on the company’s website, which you can then advertise through your Instagram profile. PayPal once again makes it easy to take payment and ship the item to your buyer.
So instead of scouring through various items on Instagram and spending hours trying to find a bargain, it would probably be easier to try Hashbag first.
