Purge is a quick and simple way to sell your stuff with your phone. No camera, no computer and no scammers. Simply snap a photo, post it to your trusted network, then purge that item out of your life! Purge's simplified user interface will make your buying and selling experience seamless and stress free.
WHY WE DESIGNED PURGE
Not too long ago, I had to move from a 4-bedroom home in the ‘burbs to a 1-bedroom in the city, therefore needing to purge a ton of my stuff. I posted everything I owned on Craigslist and I quickly learned that selling items online was effective, but it was also a pain.
HOW DOES PURGE WORK?
Sell your stuff in just 3 easy steps:
Snap a photo of the item you want to sell and type a brief description and price.
Post it to your Purge Marketplace, trusted social networks and online classifieds.
Securly 'Purge' that item out of your life and add more money in your wallet!
SOLVING YOUR PROBLEMS
Posting items online to sell is inconvenient — taking all sorts of photos, uploading them to your computer, writing lengthy descriptions and then sifting through tons of creepy emails from identity thieves. Purge puts an end to all of this.
NO MORE CREEPY EMAILS
Purge allows sellers to post items to their trusted social networks and customize the target market to their comfort level. No more stranger danger!
Purge's syndication maximizes an item’s exposure by providing sellers the option to post items for sale to the Purge Marketplace along with numerous well-known online classifieds.
WHO WILL USE PURGE?
Anyone looking for a simpler way to get rid of stuff they no longer need. Or anyone looking to browse and buy gently-used goods, such as this kick-ass coffee table….
or this rockin’ teddy bear that my niece outgrew. Purge it!
