The current COVID-19 pandemic has taken the world by storm. All over the globe, educational institutes, as well as companies, have shut down as people are self-isolating themselves to prevent the attack of this virus. For the most part, self-isolation can be pretty depressing. However, there is an upside to it too: you can finally complete the chores you’ve been delaying for so long!
For me, this chore was cleaning my closet. In fact, it has always been a big challenge for me. Usually, I wouldn’t get time to sort out my closet due to my busy schedule but even when I did, I would open my cupboards, poke around a few shirts, then shrug off the idea and get back to watching Netflix. Like many other people, it’s a little hard for me to let go of my belongings, especially clothes. What makes it more difficult is finding some to pass this stuff on to. So I kept avoiding closet cleaning during this quarantine too – until I discovered findThat.
What is findThat?
For those who don’t know, findThat is an innovative marketplace community for buying and selling. Whether you’re looking to buy and sell new or preloved products, findThat will cater to all your requirements. From small things like clothing to big products like cars, you can find and sell everything through this mobile-friendly marketplace application.
How Does It Work?
By now, you must be wondering how it works. Well, the process is fairly simple. All you have to do is download the findThat app from the App Store and make an account. After this, you will be able to view all the products for sale instantly. There are different categories for each product, so you won’t have to spend hours scrolling through the app to find what you are looking for. There’s also a ‘filter’ option which shows you all the products that match your preferences exactly.
Once you find the product you’re looking for, users can read or ask public questions or directly message the seller via WhatsApp to bargain or finalise the deal. findThat also pinpoints the sellers nearest to your location so that you don’t have to travel to far off places only to examine the product. You can visit the seller, check the product and lock the deal within a day!
findThat Marketplace is very addictive though. When you open the app, you will find yourself scrolling through ads even if you don’t want to buy anything (I’m guilty of doing that!)
If you’re a seller like me, then all you have to do is follow findThat’s three steps – snap it, list it, and sell it. Yes, it’s that easy! Once I sorted out my closet and filtered out the clothes I no longer wanted to keep, I downloaded the app, made an account and registered myself as a private seller it literally took seconds.
On the home screen, you’ll find a large green circle button with a camera icon. You can click on this to upload a new advert. I had to upload pictures of my clothes along with necessary details i.e. brand, asking price and selected the category and sub-category most importantly my location, my contact information is pre-set automatically from my profile. Another cool feature the app offers is if you find yourself like me selling a few similar items you can literally find click on a product for sale scroll down to “Sell an item like this” and upload ads even faster. Try it!
Within minutes of my ads been live, I received two buyer requests! So much so that it persuaded me to sell off some of my shoes and furnishing as well. Even though I’d upload some of my old tech including an iPad and old mobile phones.
The selling process is the same for all categories of products. If you’re unsure about what price you should charge, you can get an idea by looking at other products in the same category and then list your product.
What’s The Catch?
I’m pretty sure that by now, you’re wondering that it’s all too good to be true. There must a catch – services charge or something – but to your (and my) surprise, it’s absolutely free!

Plus, there are no extra charges for posting your ad either. There’s a small fee for boosting your ad though, but it’s £5 only, which is the lowest for any platform for posting classified ads.
