Saturday, September 9, 2017
SKIPT is an app that operates on a user's smartphone geo-location and allows them to post a spot for sale in any lineup, anywhere in North America. Sellers let potential buyers know where they are in line, set their minimum price for their spot, and how long they'll be there. Buyers can review available spots in the app and make bids on a spot they're interested in. Sellers review bids and accept the highest bid. Buyers and sellers can instant message within the app making it easy to communicate and meet up. A buyer has 15 minutes to get to the spot and the seller can then complete the payment and trade places. SKIPT charges buyers directly to their credit card and payment for sellers is fast and safe, going directly into their bank accounts.
