Swappaholics is an interactive platform that empowers individuals and businesses to exchange products, skills (SkillSwap) and services. It is modelled after the age-old barter trading tradition where goods and services of equal value were exchanged in a socially rewarding way.
People are often prevented from trading because they always don’t have cash-on-hand, goods and services are quite expensive and it costs an arm and a leg to sometimes hire freelancers and skilled professionals. Businesses also wish they had easier ways of trading their services or products for other things. Offline swapping of goods, skills and services is already a booming market across Africa. All we have done is bring this experience online, making it feature-rich yet very simple but still with a social twist.
