What is Indiegogo?

Similar to Kickstarter, Indiegogo is a crowdfunding platform that provides a cool (and fun!) way to find startup projects that you’d be interested supporting. Each Indiegogo project is brought to you by people with bold, unique, and/or innovative ideas, each of whom have dedicated an immense amount of time, money, blood, sweat (and sometimes tears!) to making their dream a reality. And in order to make this happen, we here at shoplisto need your financial support.

So here’s how it works:

  1. You like our project.
  2. You make a pledge to support us.
  3. In exchange for your support, you take your pick from a long list of awesome rewards.
  4. We use your pledge to begin developing shoplisto.
  5. After development is complete, we put your chosen rewards into action.

You’re amazing, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the support you’ve shown to shoplisto! You truly have made a difference.

What is shoplisto?

From your fashion sense to your taste in books, you’re unique. Everything about you screams “individual” – except when it comes to the amount of clutter in your home. Like almost everyone else on the planet, each year you make a vow that you’ll get rid of all this extra “stuff” cluttering up your life.

But the reality is, your enthusiasm quickly fades. After all, when it comes down to it, what incentive do you have? Listing your items using many of the existing sites is a cumbersome process, and on top of this, you’re subjected to steep seller’s fees. So what can you do?

Now you have shoplisto.

Shoplisto is an Android app that’s set to take the world of mobile commerce by storm. Not only will you finally be able to recycle your used clothing and books—and to purchase or swap from others who are doing the same—you’ll be able to earn a ton of extra money in the process! But most importantly, shoplisto is about forming a community, both online and off.

In addition, shoplisto provides men and women with the ability to shop-till-you-drop by tapping into the ever-expanding eBay and Amazon catalog, so you can forget about running out of items of interest. After all, why put limits on your individuality? What’s more, as part of our commitment to environmental friendliness, a portion of our annual proceeds will be used to support Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth. 

Easy to use. Deep discounts on fashion and books. Eco-friendliness. Go anywhere mobility. A community-minded approach. And best of all… more money in your pocket!

It’s not a dream, it’s shoplisto!

The Problem

Do you have stacks of books gathering dust on the shelves? Is your closet bursting at the seams with clothes you no longer wear? Don’t you wish there was some way you could earn a ton of money from these unwanted items, while also promoting environmental friendliness?

Well, now you can with shoplisto!

The Solution: shoplisto!

Shoplisto is a mobile platform that makes it simple for men and women of all ages to sell, swap, buy, and recycle their used fashion wear and books.

But with shoplisto, we don’t just plan on becoming one of the leading mobile apps—we want to help you have fun shopping, while also building meaningful and long-lasting relationships with the people you follow. We want to provide you with the best shopping experience and customer service available, through a fun and engaging social platform.

What Makes shoplisto Different?

When compared to many of the existing mobile and ecommerce platforms, shoplisto isn’t just about helping you put more money in your pocket—it’s about building a long-lasting, meaningful community, using a level of interactivity never seen before.

But how in the world will we accomplish this? Here are a few highlights:

  • Find users with outstanding fashion wear and books, and follow their closet and bookshelf to make sure you never miss out on a new item.

  • Want to let others in on your little secret? Generate a news feed based on who you’re following.

  • Build relationships with other users by posting comments and questions on their fashion and books.

  • Allow users the opportunity to search for specific items on eBay, Amazon, and shoplisto by photo tagging fashion brands—a first in the fashion and apparel marketplace!

  • Spread the word far and wide by sharing and liking items through social networks and blogs, while earning shopping credits!

  • Find like-minded individuals using exclusive listings and contests.

  • Develop relationships with other members in your area though real life, in-person swap meets.

  • Have kids or a baby? We have categories for them too!

  • What about maternity, plus size, weddings and formals? We offer that too!

PLUS, shoplisto helps you keep more of your hard-earned money by:

  • Maintaining ultra-low 18% transaction fees (1-2% lower than the competition!).

  • Finding deep discounts on hard-to-find fashion and books.

But That's Not All...

Whether you’re buying or selling, shoplisto is here to make the process as easy and transparent as possible by:

  • Using a safe, secure, and trustworthy platform that provides true peace of mind.

  • Providing a simple way for you to print shipping labels and track your packages. Make worrying while you wait for your package to arrive a thing of the past!

  • Providing extensive customer support. We’ll create a seamless relationship between you and your customer by providing answers to their most important questions.

How Does shoplisto Work?

Did you notice that shoplisto looks very similar to eBay? But without the auctions. You’re one smart cookie! But why is this?

Shoplisto is a licensed eBay and Amazon developer, and has integrated both their API's to build a backend catalog. In more simplistic terms, think of it like a massive tree: eBay and Amazon acts as the foundation and roots, while API developers like shoplisto act as the various branches.

What this means for you is that, not only will you be able to search eBay’s massive online selection of fashion wear and books, but you’ll also gain exclusive access to shoplisto's catalog as well. In other words, shoplisto will be the first fashion and book app that supplements eBay’s and Amazon's popularity through the integration of their API.

So how easy is it to use shoplisto?

Automatically sign in with your Facebook, Twitter, or Google+ accounts, without registration and you’ll have your item sold in just three simple steps:

  1. Step One – Click & List: Take a picture of the item you’re selling using your phone’s built-in camera. Then, post it to the shoplisto marketplace with no upfront costs.

  2. Step Two – View & Buy: Another user views your fantastic listing, and decides to buy it because it’s gorgeous or they just have to have it!

  3. Step Three – Earn & Ship: After your item has been purchased, you’ll receive payment in one of three ways—direct payment through PayPal, a paper check mailed to you, or through shopping credits. Next, you’ll print out a pre-paid shipping label and send it to the buyer.

Easy breezy!

Wow! Shoplisto Sounds Awesome! How Can I Help?

By backing our campaign, of course!

But seriously, we realize that not everyone has extra money laying around (until you can sell your fashion and books through shoplisto, that is!), so if you’re unable to provide monetary support, you can also help us by:

  1. Sharing our campaign. Help spread the word about shoplisto through social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, LinkedIn, and even your own blog.*

  2. Sending us your comments. We’re all about making shoplisto the best app on the market, so if you have any thoughts or ideas, please let us know by leaving a comment, or sending us an email or PM. But don’t stop there—get your friends involved as well!

  3. Referring your friends and family: Remember, earn rewards without having to pledge anything! All you have to do is make sure you’re logged into indiegogo, and use the share buttons and links located under the video above. Start earning a ton of credits today, and get ready to buy all the fashion and books you can handle! 

*Attention bloggers! We believe in the power of your words! Help spread the love by simply clicking on the “embed” button underneath the video. This will allow you to include a widget on your blog or website, and to help you start earning shopping credits and rewards! Each week, we’ll send you email updates about your total contributions and referrals, along with your total shopping credit earnings. After shoplisto launches, you’ll then be able to redeem your credits.

I'm Ready to Pledge! But First,
What Will My Support Be Used For?

In the world of technology, the truth is that some of the greatest ideas come from the smallest companies. With this in mind, your pledge will help move shoplisto one step closer to becoming a long-lasting, meaningfully unique community of passionate buyers and sellers.

So where are we in the development stage? At this point, we’ve achieved six primary milestones:

  • Designing 22 wireframe sequences,
  • Coding the framework for shoplisto’s graphical user interface,
  • Coding the basic eBay backend catalog.
  • Launched fashion, book, tech blogging campaign,
  • Writing out technical specifications, and
  • Registered a domain name.

Now, this is where you come in.

Our goal of $15,000 will help us hire a developer, set up a strong server to host our platform, list shoplisto in Google Play, and implement top-notch service and support.

But the reality is that creating a groundbreaking app from the ground up is no easy task, and this initial amount may not be enough. If so, we may undergo additional rounds of crowdfunding prior to launch. After all, we’re out to provide the best user experience from the get-go.

Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle:
Shoplisto Supports Earth-Friendly Charities

At shoplisto, we’re equally passionate about becoming a long-lasting, meaningfully unique community of passionate buyers and sellers, as we are about doing our part to create earth-friendly sustainability. That’s why a portion of our annual proceeds will be used to support Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth. 

  • Since 1971, Greenpeace has dedicated an enormous amount of time, passion and resources to their mission of exposing global environmental problems and to promoting solutions for future generations, while simultaneously ensuring that the Earth remains able to nurture the diversity of life. It’s a mission Greenpeace vows to continue pursuing with tireless determination.

  • Friends of the Earth is an outspoken leader in the environmental and progressive communities. The organization seeks to change the public’s, media’s, and policymaker’s perceptions on these issues, and to effect change using hard-hitting, well-reasoned policy analysis and advocacy campaigns. Friends of the Earth is focused on describing what needs to be done, rather than what is seen as politically feasible or politically correct. This hard-hitting advocacy has been the key to their successful campaigns throughout their 43-year history.

Meet the Man Behind shoplisto

Founder Keo R. Bun has an innate ability to anticipate trends. With his immense insight, he foresees mobile and social commerce, as well as the sharing economy, as the wave of future.

With interest in fashion and as a lover of books, he also has a ton of clothing and books just waiting for a good home. And when these two worlds collided, the idea for shoplisto was born.

FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

When is the app going live? 

We’re just as excited as you are to change the face of mobile commerce, so the short answer is: as soon as possible!

After the campaign has ended, we’ll begin development of the core features, and estimate that it will take 4-6 months of coding prior to being implemented into Google Play. All supporters will be notified via email as the launch date approaches.

What phones will shoplisto be available for? 

Shoplisto is focused on making the biggest impact right from the get-go, so we plan on starting with the most popular operating system: Android. From there, we’ll eventually port to iOS and Windows Mobile once our user base grows.

Will I be able to access this app on my computer? 

Because we’re looking to turn mobile commerce on its head, our initial focus will be on mobile operating systems, first Android. However, after establishing a solid mobile user base, we plan on building a website to fully round out our ecommerce objectives.

Why is there a transaction fee?

Have you ever heard the saying, “The best things in life are free?” It’s true, but only to a certain point.

The reality is that everything costs money. From development costs to support personnel, and between credit card transactions and a whole host of other costs, it’s necessary for us to charge a transaction fee based on our business model. Each successful selling transaction that you complete will be subject to an 18% fee (for basic listings – 35% for featured listing), which will be deducted from your earnings.

In the end, this allows us to bring you the best mobile commerce solution available, and to keep pushing the envelope.

What is the transaction fee for featured listings?

Think of a shoplisto featured listing as a supersized version of a standard listing. Your item will receive maximum exposure, and as a result will sell more quickly. In other words, much more bang for your buck.

Along with this increased visibility, though, comes additional costs on our end, such as increased server usage... As a result, all featured listings are subject to a 35% earnings fee. 

What are shopping credits? 

A new way to shop! Shopping credits give you the ability to immediately apply your earnings to the shoplisto product of your choice.

However, keep in mind that shopping credits are non-redeemable, store-only credits that can be used to purchase books and fashion wear exclusively in shoplisto. This means that you won't be able to use them on other sites (such as eBay).

Will I have to register in order to use shoplisto?

In short: No. We’re all about creating a seamless user experience, so we built shoplisto as a social platform on top of other social networks. No muss, no fuss.

This means that you’ll be able to quickly sign in using your favorite social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.

How is your service safe and secure for buyers? 

Shoplisto is a technology-driven company, which means that we’re not only focused on providing you with the best user experience possible, but also on giving you peace of mind with every transaction.

As such, shoplisto uses an account verification system to provide safe and secure transactions. Shoplisto will also feature the ability to leave positive and negative feedback for each seller, along with detailed comments. This allows all users to make an informed decision about who they will/will not do business with.

Can I get multiple perks?

Yes, thank you! The more the merrier, my friend.

You can back the shoplisto campaign as many times as you wish, and choose as many perks as you like!

Can I change my perk?

If it was up to us: absolutely.

Unfortunately though, Indiegogo doesn't currently allow you to change perks once you've pledged. However, you always have the option of pledging again for an additional perk, if you like.

How are you partnered with eBay and Amazon?

Shoplisto is a licensed eBay and Amazon developer, and has integrated their API's to build a backend catalog. In more simplistic terms, think of it like a massive tree: eBay and Amazon acts as the foundation and roots, while API developers like shoplisto act as the various branches.

What this means for you is that, not only will you be able to search eBay’s massive online selection of fashion wear and books, but you’ll also gain exclusive access to shoplisto's catalog as well.

With Amazon, you get to photo-tag fashion brands in images you take of you and your friends, and then search for that specific item by marveling at the trendsetter on Amazon's fashion catalog. In other words, shoplisto will be the first fashion and book app that supplements eBay’s and Amazon's popularity through the integration of their API. In the end, this makes millions of fashion, clothes, accessories, and books available for you to browse.

What happens if you don't raise enough funds?

Like the little train that could, we’ll try and try again. We know shoplisto is something that millions of people will enjoy, so we’re on a mission to make it happen.

But because there are numerous costs associated with the execution and delivery of shoplisto, the project has many different funding levels. As a result, if we run low on funds at some point, we'll likely raise additional funds through another campaign.

Crowdfunding campaigns entail a lot of time and planning, and there is so much to do and learn from. In reality, the development and launch of the app pales in comparison to running a successful funding campaign. If necessary, there are dozens of details that we could always do better if we have to run one again.

I LOVE this product and want to share and tell everyone I know. What should I do?

First of all: thank you! Your excitement is one of the things that motivates us the most.

To help you share information about shoplisto, you’ll see several social media buttons and links under the video at the top of this page. As long as you’re logged in, Indiegogo automatically keeps track of your referrals so you can earn some amazing rewards—plus a ton of shopping credits to buy fashion and books!

In addition, bloggers can help spread the love by simply clicking on the “embed” button underneath the video at the top. This will allow you to include a widget on your blog, and to help you start earning shopping credits and rewards! Each week, we’ll send you email updates about your total contributions and referrals, along with your total shopping credit earnings. After shoplisto launches, you’ll then be able to redeem your credits.

Can I help out in any way besides pledging my support? 

Yes! If you know how to code on Android or iOS operating systems, or even for the web, we’d love to talk to you! Or, maybe you have experience with public relations, generating publicity, or marketing. Alternately, perhaps you’re a blogger interested in fashion or books. Whatever your specialty is, we’d love to talk to you! Feel free to send an email at any time to shoplisto@gmail.com.
