Buyer-driven marketplace providing vendors with a stream of ready-to-buy shoppers, each with a known budget and clear purchase timelines

Request marketplace is positioned as the first mile of consumer shopping – the place where shoppers start their purchase journey. On the Request mobile app, shoppers post their purchase needs onto a social timeline using a template form, much like airline and hotel booking websites. Vendors view and reply to these purchase requests with sales offers.

Vendor responses are displayed on neatly organized tables in a dedicated shopping dashboard, where the shopper can review, compare and select the best deal, and then proceed to purchase.

Request marketplace brings the benefits of corporate tender procurement to mass-market consumer purchasing
