Launching Kaartu.com!

| Announcements | July 20, 2012

Hello All,

Warm greetings from Team Tapprs!

We are happy to announce the launch of another service of ours called Kaartu – an online marketplace for photographers.

For those of you who are curious, Kaartu is Lithuanian for “together”.

After having seen the need for a good marketplace for photographers, we decided to setup one ourselves. Honestly, it is more of an experiment today than anything else.

Today, this is more of a listing site where you could

  •  list your photography gear on sale
  • offer your photography services to others
  • search for items, services offered by others

We expect the buy & sell category to be the core of this site and the other stuff such as services / events listing to be add-on/goodwill services mostly.

The awesome news is that, a good portion of our service should be free forever. However, there’s some bad news too – we want to monetize the site in some way (remember, we are a business). We want to have paid plans and fee-oriented services. What and how, we don’t know yet. We promise to keep you updated.

Long term, if the service becomes viable, we plan to

  • offer sellers/buyers the option to get their gear quality tested and graded for a small fee (remember, we do it at Tapprs.com day-in and day-out)
  • rate both buyers and sellers on our site
  • be the payment intermediary and provide escrow services to ensure peace of mind
  • if possible, even help / provide transit insurance for intercity deals
  • provide some benchmark in pricing used gear
  • rest, we will figure out as we go! 🙂

As always, like we have done at Tapprs.com, we will keep experimenting and evolving – which we feel is the key to a service like this.

As of now, the site is based on a WordPress template with some customization to suit our needs. Some of it is good. Some, please adjust maadi, for now. In a couple of months, we will have our own home-grown web-application which we believe will give you all a much better user experience. Until then, please bear with us and do keep sending us your feedback to support@tapprs.com. With continuous iteration and constant evolution, we should be a much better place soon.

You could start with us here: kaartu.com/add-new/

We look forward to your support and help in growing Kaartu. Please help spread the word!

Thank you,
Team Tapprs/Kaartu
