SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SK Planet today announced Mint Market, a free marketplace for mint condition pre-owned items, available for iPhone and Android smartphone users. The app enables users to buy and sell goods offered to the complete user-base or to friends, colleagues or acquaintances through social networks such as Facebook, schools or the workplace.
Mint Market highlights items for sale that are posted within 60 days of the purchase date by featuring them in the main feed so users have easy access to brand-new items that perhaps could not be returned or exchanged. The application's advanced search engine helps users find exactly what they need and lets them search by location, price, network or category. Categories include baby, home and garden, clothes and accessories or collectibles.
The app makes it simple for shoppers to keep track of products they want by allowing them to create a list of favorite items and utilize Mint Market's search alert system, which sends a notification as soon as one of their favorite items becomes available. Mint Market users can also read recommendations for products similar to those of interest so the user can make an informed decision before purchasing.
More than 33 million U.S. consumers already engage in shopping-related activities on their smartphones and Mint Market is creating a comfortable, safe and convenient environment for shopping and conducting business among friends, colleagues and acquaintances. Mint Market shoppers can interact with sellers directly before purchasing through comments. The app arms consumers with the ability to review detailed information about an item, the seller history and comment conversations that buyers have had with sellers over any particular item.
