Australia's most popular marketplace app for used items

When the pandemic hit in 2020, many of us decided to clear our homes of our preloved luxury wear, collectibles, electronics, cars and more! In fact, the second-hand goods economy in Australia was reportedly worth $46 billion in 2020 and is only expected to grow this year!

But as eCommerce comes to the forefront, there is also a growing need for greater safety and security when trading second-hand goods online.

According to the Australian Second Hand Goods Consumer Study 2021*:

  • 19% of people who bought or sold second-hand goods online had fallen victim to scams, frauds, assaults, or robberies.

  • 60% believe an escrow payment system is a better way to buy and sell second-hand goods.

  • 22% prefer to meet at a safe public location to pick up or drop off their second-hand goods.

    To help the community sell their pre-owned items in a more convenient and safe way, two Melbourne entrepreneurs co-founded, Warrp, Australia's newest digital marketplace - which aims to change the way we buy and sell online!

    What makes Warrp different from other digital classifieds and marketplace platforms?

  • Secure Meetups: Instead of meeting at your home or a random location, Warrp offers a one-of-a-kind 'Safe Meetup & Pickup' delivery method. With this option, you will meet the buyer or seller at a Warrp Trusted Partner to finalise the transaction.

  • No More Haggling: Warrp's innovative machine learning pricing system, known as Warrping, eliminates the need for negotiation by presenting fair item valuations according to the market.

  • Price Updates: All items in Warrp's dynamic marketplace update every 12 hours automatically, to ensure prices are in accordance with the latest crowdsourced fair market price.

  • Safe Payment Option: Warrp offers an escrow payment system using PayID for higher value transactions, which ensures money only changes hands securely once both parties are satisfied.

    Discover Warrp's unique end-to-end experience for yourself today. Warrp is available to download on iPhones via the Apple App Store, and will be available on all other smartphone and web devices soon.

    Discover a marketplace where you are in control of the journey and destination. Just Warrp It!
