A secure mobile marketplace designed exclusively for college students.

About

NeoBook provides a quick and easy way for students to buy and sell their textbooks and other items. Our student verification process ensures that our users will have the confidence of knowing that they will engage in a transaction with a fellow peer. All payments are securely facilitated with Stripe Connect so that students are guaranteed a safe, convenient, and seamless transaction process.

How It Works

The Buyer

  • Upon creating a profile, the buyer is prompted to the NeoFeed, where they can search for items that they wish to purchase.
  • When a desired item is found, the buyer can purchase the item for the price that is listed or make an offer to the seller.
  • When there is a mutual agreement on the price of an item, the buyer is prompted to the NeoChat, where they can coordinate a time and place to meet on campus to complete the transaction with the seller.

The Seller

  • Upon registering with Stripe Connect, the seller will then have access to the seller’s tab.
  • Upon selecting the sell tab, they will be prompted to their phone camera where they can take pictures of the item that they wish to sell.
  • The seller lists the name of the item, a brief description, the price, and the condition of the item, which will then list that item on the NeoFeed.

Make searching easier

For added convenience, we provide a wish-list for our buyers so that they can easily input product credentials so they do not have to constantly search for an item.

As soon as a related item is listed on the NeoFeed, the buyer will be sent a push notification indicating that their product is for sale.

A better way to sell

To make the textbook selling process even easier, we provide our users with an ISBN scanner so that they simply have to scan their textbook’s barcode.

The barcode will automatically pull up the textbook’s information so that all they have to do is simply scan the barcode of their textbook. The barcode will automatically pull up the textbook's information, making listing easier than ever.
