Until now, used textbooks in my school were traded wildly - random posts with price lists on the Facebook group were commonplace, and the organization of the fair was always an overwhelming task. In September, long conversations and scheduling meetings with other random students couldn’t be avoided to get the whole set of books.
Not anymore! I designed a platform that connects buyers with owners of unnecessary textbooks - but this is not a regular shopping website. An important role in the transaction is played by the Student Council, which is a trusted third party, accepting textbooks for sale, assigning them grades and processing orders. Students can easily compare prices and choose the right set for them.
SC charges a commission for its participation, which allows it to cover operating costs. Unfortunately, we have not implemented online payments due to tax complications.
