Hyperlokal lets users set up shop online and sell to others or buy goods within their immediate area or neighborhood

A new online marketplace platform went online on Wednesday, December 2, to help households in the middle of the pandemic with the buying and selling of goods and wares.

The platform, known as Hyperlokal, lets users pivot more readily towards the local buy-and-sell business, without necessarily turning to social media as an informal way of offering their wares.

Instead, Hyperlokal has a map-based system that lets users set up shop online and sell to people in their immediate area or neighborhood. Set-up takes a few minutes, and should not require digital branding or marketing skills to get started.

Meanwhile, users looking to buy things are able to immediately see the sellers around their area and place orders or otherwise coordinate on a sale of goods.

Guilian Sencio, CEO and Founder of Hyperlokal, said in a statement that the platform “solves economical, social, and logistical problems while providing all the support these small businesses need for online sales. These include guides for them to maintain a solid market in their neighborhoods after they launch their products on our app.”

The platform is available at https://hyperlokal.co/ and is already live with a bevy of sellers already in place. – Rappler.com
