You’re excited to enjoy it, show it off. Now fast forward to that moment, a few months, maybe even a year later when that new feeling has faded and your once shiny, new, prized possession…well, it feels just the same as everything else you have.
Then you see a new model on the street, or your friend shows you their newest acquisition and it’s then you know you need a change. But how? You’re not going to go buy another one, and you have this other perfectly good thing at home.
You could sell it, place it on Ebay…and wait. You could list it on consignment or a specialized website…and you wait, and pay more on top of losing value on your used item. You could trade it, but your buddy doesn’t really have exactly what you want, or maybe you don’t know what you want.
This is the problem with today’s second hand luxury goods market. A wealth of opportunities exists to sell, auction, trade in, or consign your watch, car or handbag but there’s always a problem that most people are willing to accept.
It’s that in reality, you’re losing the money on your item by handing it over to something or someone you don’t have that much control over.
Remember that car poster you used to have above your bed? Or remember scrolling wide-eyed through those watches on Instagram, or seeing that Birkin Kelly on the arm of the new girl at work? Whatever your wish, there’s an easier way to get what you want through what you have, or to see the possibilities.
There’s an app for that…
Tradee helps connect you to other people around the world with the same dilemma. How? Someone somewhere has something you want, and you have something they want. The Trade Machine matches your wishes. It also matches you to a wealth of other items matching yours in value you didn’t even realize that were possible, and that’s the beauty of the game.
So how do you play? It’s pretty darn simple, you just have to publish your item on the app, pick some items or categories as your “wishes” and you’re playing. You don’t even have to know what you want, you don’t even have to make a deal in the end. Maybe you’re just curious what you could get if you wanted to let go of your Rolex Submariner today? You list your item on the app, play the game and get matched to a whole world of offers. You could even change that Rolex Submariner up for a new watch every month, it’s all up to you.
Who knows, you might just wind up with that car on the poster that you always wanted.
