On Wednesday, November 16th 2016, Flippy Campus, a social app for Ghanaian tertiary schools that promises to give the ultimate campus experience, will launch a marketplace add-on for its Android and web app that’ll allow users to buy and sell new and/or used products easily.
Flippy Campus, boasts a user base of over 100,000 students and recently launched on five (5) new campuses including Central University, Methodist University, University of Professional Studies Accra, Takoradi Technical University and the Kumasi Technical University.
“Buying and selling on campus is a part of student culture and we have noticed a lot of this activity in our users’ social media feeds. So we decided to give them a dedicated section on the app to sell items to their flip buddies and make extra income while using Flippy Campus.” - Ammishaddai Ofori, Head of Content & PR
David Mumuni, CEO of Flippy Campus, had this to say: “The Flippy Marketplace is in line with our efforts to create the ultimate campus experience for our users. It is an idea we have been cooking up for almost a year now and we are happy to roll it out to allow students and student-focused brands and services to reach the thousands of students actively engaged on Flippy Campus. In future, we hope to have a dedicated section within the marketplace for specific brands to relate directly with the students.”
Flippy Campus has recently formed a number of strategic partnerships to improve the marketplace experience for its student users, InterPay (the payment solution), Campus Base TV (the number one campus TV targeted towards students), Samsung and Tisu (the ecommerce platform dedicated towards giving great deals on products.)
The company is looking forward to expanding to all tertiary institutions in the country by 2017, and move on to take over Lagos, in Nigeria.
Students, businesses and services looking to sell directly to students can do so by downloading the Flippy Campus app on the playstore or using the web app.
