Wantboards is taking the traditional idea of shopping and flipping it on its head. Rather than trudging through multiple stores to find the best price or waiting for coupons/sales, we cut out that process for the consumer ("buyer") by simply having them post on our platform with what they want at a desired price. Then, the Wantboards team finds them businesses ("sellers") that have exactly what they're looking for. In addition to helping consumers get better deals on the things they want, we want to provide businesses with an ongoing outlet for finding new customers by alerting them when a buyer's post matches their inventory. In many ways, Wantboards is a more advanced and modern-day classifieds. Many retailers and businesses have picked up on the consumeristic trend of demand-based buying. However, there still is no go-to medium for buyers to tell businesses exactly what they want and how much they are willing to pay. We are unlike any other e-commerce platform because we want to foster a completely demand-driven environment before it becomes an emerging market.
