Chances are you've heard of eBay, Craigslist, and Twitter. Well, if you could stick them all in a blender the resulting tech smoothie might look something like the brand new service called CLDmkt, or Cloud Market.
"Basically CLDmket is a way that you can buy, sell, and trade goods all through Twitter. It's very fast. In the time it takes you to compose a tweet you can list a product for sale, or trade or find a product," said John McPheters of CLDmkt.com.
All of the items are tagged with zip codes so that you can find products locally. Also, thought it's coming, at the moment there's no way to pay through the site so it is primarily to set up one-on-one communications for people to do business.
Developers say one of their main target audiences is hardcore social sellers. Maybe you know some of these people, maybe you are one of these people. These are folks who, in order to supplement their income, sell stuff on services like Facebook.
"As we evolve over the next few months we're going to add ways for small businesses like and large businesses as well to syndicate their information out to our new marketplace and also interact with the people that are on there,"
At the moment, CLDmkt is free for everyone to use but developers say once a strong user base is in place, they will start charging a small fee per listing for sellers.
