Our Community Manager Hajar walks us through Duriana, a new app for buying and selling on the go. Check out her tips and best finds from the Duriana marketplace
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Duriana, we are a new social marketplace app, which allows users to discover a world of wonderful products from pre-loved goodies, unique arts & crafts items to quirky vintage buys. If you love rummaging through weekend bazaars, good news – we’re bringing the market experience to the palm of your hand.
How do I start?
Our app is compatible with all Apple and Android phones. You can download it here: iOS http://taps.io/KiuA and for Android http://taps.io/Kisg. Once you’ve downloaded the app, pick a unique username. For business accounts, pick your shop name for easy reference later down the line.
How do I start selling?
Our listing process is easy as 1,2,3. Click sell, snap a picture of your item, give it a price, item name and select category. Be as descriptive as you can when giving your item a short description – what size is the dress? Is it a limited edition item? Vintage? Make sure you convey its story – don’t leave the special details out.
How do I browse?
You can choose to browse from 18 categories such as gadgets, women’s fashion, designer fashion, photography, vintage and music among many others. For more refined searches, hit the search icon and type in whatever you heart fancies (in this case: Peplum Dress).
What kind of stuff can I find?
With over a dozen categories to choose from you really are spoilt for choice. I’m a sucker for all things vintage, and let me tell you, the app has plenty of little treasures. I came across @Ahmad, a yearly vendor at the Kuala Lumpur Vintage Festival, and his extensive collection of vintage hankies from 1980 to 2006.
What are my best finds so far?
A pair of vintage Salvatore Ferragamo shoes. Buy here: http://taps.io/Lq8g
Authentic Hermes Silk Scarf by Philippe Ledoux. Buy here: http://taps.io/LpzA
A briefcase clutch bag. According to the item description, the seller bought this little baby in India! I love it when sellers take the time to add more detail in their descriptions. Buy here: http://taps.io/Lpyw
