  • (1888PressRelease) August 24, 2016 - Curbza, a peer-to-peer commerce mobile app based in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, has announced the launch of its university marketplaces. Each university in Nova Scotia now has a network on Curbza, offering students a marketplace to buy, sell and trade items to other students at their school as well as vendors within the area.

    The latest version of the app provides users with the ability to create and manage customizable networks. The customizable networks feature allows users to create networks based on location, types of items or social groups. Users have the ability to make networks public or private to control who can view items. A network for each university and college in Nova Scotia has been created by Curbza.

    "We created networks to give users the ability to make decisions when buying and selling online," says CEO, Scott Theriault. "Now users can choose if they sell to everyone, or a small group of friends. It's a great safety feature too."

    Students can easily join their school's network by opening their store and viewing all networks. When a student is on campus and the phone's location services are activated, the school's network will be the first to appear under the networks feature.

    "With so many students moving in and out of Nova Scotia each year, we noticed there's often furniture left on the curb," says marketing director, Elizabeth O'Hanley. "We're giving students a way to sell their stuff and make money, or buy used goods and save money. They don't have to put their stuff on the curb or throw it away. They can monetize it and help someone find the items they need by using our university networks."

    Students are able to search their school's market for items they need, and send an offer to the seller within the app. Curbza offers in-app messaging which allows people within the network to communicate details about the sale without sharing personal information.

    "The idea of university networks is to give students a safe community to buy and sell in," says CEO, Scott Theriault. "We've set these networks up for security and convenience."
