New (Protected) Used Gear Market for Photographers
5 hours in the past
I am one of many co-founders of ShareGrid “The Digital camera Sharing Neighborhood.”
We began again in 2014 with a easy thought, a ardour venture to permit creatives like ourselves to lease gear to 1 one other, attending to experiment with the most recent gear on shoots with out having to personal it. Quick ahead 4 years and it is was a full-on vibrant neighborhood of 53,000+ verified photographers/filmmakers sharing their gear within the US, with instantaneous insurance coverage to again them up.
We not too long ago had a brand new thought – why not use the credibility ShareGrid members have constructed up and permit them to purchase & promote gear to one another?
“Free” on-line marketplaces like Fb, Craigslist and OfferUp are ripe with fraud and lack a focussed viewers. On paid marketplaces corresponding to Amazon and eBay + PayPal, there have been many horror tales of fraud, and non-existent buyer help with cash and equipment disappearing.
This is the reason we constructed the ShareGrid Purchase & Promote market devoted to photographers and creatives. Anybody can checklist, purchase and promote gear of their area people or ship (US just for now).
We’ve spent years perfecting superior fraud checks and manually verifying the ID of every member on ShareGrid – you may see precisely who you’re doing enterprise with, their skilled background, critiques and many others.
We deal with background checks, advertising and marketing of your gear, cost processing, customer support, and within the uncommon case of disputes, mitigation providers. It’s free to checklist and in case you promote your gear on ShareGrid we cost a low charge of 5% + cost processing – cheaper than eBay, Amazon or buying and selling it in to a dealer. It is the most secure and best technique to promote your gear or purchase used gear.
We’re within the early phases of this new market – and all ears. If in case you have any options on find out how to make it work higher for you tell us!
