It’s well known that the majority of the student population loves a bargain; be it an eBay steal, high street sales, or charity shop find. Now, there’s a brand new way to hunt down a deal –with Wallapop’s mobile market, available at your fingertips.

Wallapop is a new flea market mobile app which, despite only being launched in the UK two months ago, is already in the top 20 lifestyle apps available on iOS. The app allows individuals to sell or buy used products in an easy and fast way using a smartphone, giving second-hand markets shopping a new lease of life and promoting the exchange of products between people from the same areas.

Everything for sale on Wallapop is listed in order of how fast you can get to it, so instead of trekking all the way from Portobello Road to Spitalfields, you can shop right from your phone; you can get in touch directly with the seller, and even meet them to see the item before you buy it. As well as finding some unique fashion buys, you can find furniture, cameras, new technology, art, household items, and a handful of typical flea market oddities.

As well as second-hand buying and selling, the app also offers space for independent shops and sellers wanting to promote and sell their handmade goods. Now more than ever is the moment to support the small traders and offer alternatives for the responsible consumption.

You can sell for free on Wallapop, so get spring cleaning and raid your wardrobe for all of the things you don’t use or wear anymore – a pair of shoes that don’t fit, old textbooks, or a bike in the back garden.  Just upload a picture to the app, and wait for someone to snap it up; you’ll earn some extra cash, and make room for all your new Wallapop purchases!

For more information on Wallapop, visit their website or download the app now for Android or iOS.
