GiveAway is a neighborhood and community driven marketplace. It allows you to give away things you don’t need to people who live next door to you, and get things from your neighborhood that you want. Pretty similar to an online garage sale!
GiveAway isn’t limited to stuff — you can also find a side job in the app – offer your services to earn internal coins and use it to obtain items through the app that you need, like appliances, clothes, or even food!
Available products include: electronics, appliances, accessories, smartphones, cases, furniture, televisions, refrigerators, clothing, shoes, books, pet products, wheels, services, food and a lot of profitable deals and cheap things! The app is also a great option for parents to exchange children's clothes, toys and baby stuff.
So far, we are live in the United States in the following cities: New York City (NY), Los Angeles (CA), Chicago, Houston, Phoenix, Philadelphia, San Antonio, San Diego, Dallas, San Jose, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Orlando, Miami, Chicago, Houston, Seattle, Atlanta, Sacramento, Arlington, Phoenix, Orlando, Kansas City, Philadelphia, Charlotte, Denver and others!.
GiveAway isn’t just sustainable and smart, it also provides endless hours of entertainment via browsing through other people’s stuff. Try it, and you might discover something great that you didn’t even know you needed! Giving things away is also much more pleasant than buying and selling.
Giving items away is much easier than trying to sell them. On GiveAway, you can add an item in just a few taps. We show your stuff to the neighborhood (5 miles or so near your location). Our unique auction system determines the winners — users offer up internal credits for your free stuff, competing with one another using a bidding system. Only the winner can send a message to the giver, so you only have to coordinate with one person. Then, the winner will come and pick up the item from you!
To keep things fair, every user on GiveAway is awarded what we call Karma. Karma is your GiveAway currency to use for bids. Users earn Karma by giving away items and can spend it on items they wish. Using Karma, you can claim interesting items in the app. The more interesting your item is, the more Karma other users will spend to make it theirs — this is the “bidding” part of GiveAway.
You can also earn Karma by offering services, services and writing interesting stories to share with the community about things you received and loved, or gave away that took on a life of their own.
Users also have the option to simply buy Karma by donating to the project. Even if you do that to earn Karma, it is cheaper than buying things from other places.
It’s also possible to raise Karma by bringing new participants to the app. Share items in personal messages and on your social networks, and use the “Invite friends” function. You will receive bonus +1 Karma for every new participant that follows your link as soon as they log in to the app. GiveAway makes it easy to get started by using the “Raise Karma” button in your profile.
GiveAway wants our users to think about safety first when giving away or picking up items. We ask our users to:
1. Put off the meeting if you have any cold symptoms.
2. Wash your hands very carefully before putting the items in a bag. Wear your mask any time you are handling the items.
3. Facilitate a contact-free exchange by leaving the items outside of a door or at a nearby outdoor public location.
4. Please find items to pick up in your neighborhood and take items from people who live close to you. Wear your mask the whole time you are out getting your items!
5. When you add a new thing to GiveAway, mark that you are ready to give it away contact-free, so others know you are following the safety rules and will do so, too.
We hope you’ll join us in giving i away your things. Let it go. Sign up now, and earn bonus Karma when you create an account!
