Chantilly, VA (PRWEB) March 1, 2007
Mosoma, Inc has announced the launch of its social commerce website, http://www.mosoma.com. The site provides a venue for students and employees of colleges, universities, community colleges and trade schools to buy/sell, bid or barter for goods and services.
Offering a new level of social networking combined with mobile access provides Mosoma's users with a very powerful new type of social commerce. Users will be able to post their items to their blogs, Facebook, Wink, Digg and del.icio.us.
Mosoma.com's multifaceted and open model combined with its extensive database of over 2500 colleges, universities, community colleges and trade schools means that it offers students one of the easiest and most flexible buying and selling experiences available today.
Mosoma.com charges users 99 cents to list an item or service for 30 days. For our first 90 days we will be offering up to 5 free listings when users invite 5 friends to use the site.
Users will be able to search through bid offerings and listings. The listings are organized onto individual college pages so that users may buy/sell, bid or barter within their own campus community and nationwide. Within these college pages, items are organized by category for easy browsing.
Once the buyer and seller have agreed upon the details of a transaction, they can choose to meet on campus (if possible) or use a shipping company to complete their transactions.
Mosoma.com offers users the ability to invite users with whom they have done business to become a part of their trusted partners. Users will be able to see other user's trusted partners.
Using XML, Mosoma.com feeds listings to others sites, such as oodle.com, vast.com, edgio.com and googlebase.com. This allows our user's items to be visible across other large classified sites.
If sellers want greater visibility, they can purchase ads that will highlight their listings throughout the site, for only $5.00. These ads are a great way to promote items by including a photo and product information in addition to a link to the main listing on the college page.
If sellers want greater visibility at the school level, they will be able to post an announcement that will be able to reach all users at their school for only $5.00.
Mosoma.com is the first online college marketplace to allow students to utilize cell phones to track and accept offers through mobile.mosoma.com. Using any cell phone's existing Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) browser, users can log in, check the status of the offers they have received and accept the offers they want. Users will be able to receive notifications via SMS.
User security is very important to Mosoma. A school e-mail address is required in order to register to use the system. Users have total control over all personal information. They can make public as much or as little of their personal information as they wish.
In the near future mosoma.com will be adding functionality like store fronts, a mosoma API and mosoma functionality as a service. We will target broader markets when the additional functionality is developed.
Founded in May, 2006 Mosoma, Inc is an early stage company. Its management team includes a Google Summer of Code winning college student and several senior level business managers.
