We wanted to create a platform that would be beneficial to both student buyers and sellers.
Tempe, AZ (PRWEB) March 19, 2014
MyBeeble today announced that it has launched an application allowing users to buy and sell textbooks to each other on their mobile devices.
MyBeeble makes it easy for students to buy and sell their textbooks without setting foot in the university bookstore. A search in the MyBeeble app will return results for new and used copies of textbooks, as well as e-textbooks and rental agreements. Students can easily compare textbook options and save their results with the app’s wish list capabilities. Textbook prices can even be compared with leading online bookstores so students can be sure to find the best deal.
Gabriel Cornejo, MyBeeble founder and CEO, said “Students pay an obscene amount of money for new textbooks only to get pennies in return from the bookstore after the semester. We wanted to create a platform that would be beneficial to both student buyers and sellers, and alleviate the headache textbooks cause each and every term.”
MyBeeble was designed with convenience in mind. Users can easily upload their used textbooks to be found by students that need them now. By using the devices geographical location feature, students can find textbooks closest to them, allowing them to save time and money on shipping, as well as make transactions with other students nearby. The app’s social features encourage users to cultivate relationships with students studying similar topics not only in their University or College but all schools requiring the same textbook. That’s the beauty of this app, the “Youniverse” is limitless.
“We hope that MyBeeble users will keep in touch after a transaction,” said Cornejo. “Buying and selling textbooks from other students really gives you the opportunity to find people with similar interests, and, hopefully, that will lead to valuable connections throughout a university career.”
Security and peace of mind were a top concern for Cornejo and his team when creating the platform. MyBeeble partnered with PayPal to ensure that all non-cash transactions receive the payment protection that they provide.
With many students heading back to school this week MyBeeble is launching at the perfect time. The app is currently available in the App Store for iOS devices, with plans to expand to Android and web in the near future.
