NEW YORK, April 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The leading selling on-demand service, Gone, has announced the launch of a Gone Marketplace, where users can purchase second-hand electronics that have been inspected and approved for quality. With all of the risks in buying electronics from unknown sellers, this platform guarantees buyers know exactly what they are purchasing. The company taps into eBay's most important category (used electronics is a $30 billion market). In addition to the launch of the Marketplace, Gone is also expanding its popular concierge service to Manhattan. The service provides every user with a Gone assistant to simplify the selling process. The assistant goes to the seller's home to pick up and package each item for sale. The service alleviates stresses of selling in the city as Gone handles the entire process from the pricing, pickup, packaging, contacting buyers, negotiating, and shipping of items.
Many online buyers are wary when it comes to buying second-hand electronics online. From phishing scams to faulty equipment, buying electronics online can be dangerous for its unknowns. Given that, Gone launched its Marketplace so users know exactly what they are buying, and more importantly, each flaw in the item. A specialist inspects each item so that buyers can be absolutely sure of the item they purchase. Gone's Marketplace offers buyers an easily browsable web store of thoroughly described, quality assured used electronics sold at fractions of the retail price.
Gone's concierge service, available across the West Coast and Austin, has now launched in Manhattan. In response to the popularity of Gone Lite in New York City, which sends users pre-paid packaging materials to send in items, Gone is making it even easier to sell in the city by offering concierge pick up service. "For busy New Yorkers we wanted to provide a way to sell electronics and appliances quickly and efficiently," said Nicolas Bayerque, CEO of Gone.
Gone has been leading the way for easy On-demand selling. The expansion of the company's concierge service signals immense growth for the app and SMS service. The company plans to continue to expand the concierge service city-by-city throughout 2016. For more information on Gone, visit www.thegoneapp.com.
