The MoneyMagpie team are delighted to announce that we’re partnering up with the selling and swapping marketplace, Paperclip.
This new partnership will allow all MoneyMagpie visitors to upload and sell anything they don’t need, as well as giving you the chance to browse and buy items from fellow users at a bargain price!
The Paperclip platform gives online shoppers the chance to save money by bartering and swapping within a trusted, local community. It’s completely free and there are no set prices, so every amount paid and every item traded is agreed as fair by both the buyer and the seller.
As well as introducing the marketplace to our visitors, Paperclip will also be providing expert advice on how to save money and how to get the most out of second-hand shopping online.
The new service is now live and can be found in the Clear Your Clutter section here – just in time for Christmas!
Paperclip allows you to get rid of the old items we have sitting in the attic and exchange them for the things you need. If you don’t want to trade for something else, you can also save money by buying second-hand goodies at a much lower than retail price, or sell your own items to make a bit of extra cash. Unlike other online marketplaces, it’s completely free to use with no annoying ads, listing or transaction fees.
The marketplace is a great place to find bargains at Christmas and throughout the year. Paperclip has so many new, sealed items that are technically second-hand and therefore sell for much lower than you’d pay on the High Street or online. As there are no set costs, so you can haggle for a cheap deal and end up saving heaps on all sorts of goodies like GHDs, Xboxs and children’s toys that might otherwise go unused.
After Christmas is over, it’s also a great place to upload any unwanted gifts and either swap them for the things you’d like, or make a bit of extra money on the side!
Easy does it
Just like MoneyMagpie, Paperclip love to keep things simple. The marketplace itself isn’t cluttered or complicated and is super easy to use. It only takes a second to upload a new item, share it or save it for later. The platform allows for speedy browsing and features a filter system to help you find just what you’re looking for in no time at all.
There’s no lengthy sign-up process, you can login in with your Facebook profile or create a new account in just three easy steps. Paperclip keeps your personal information safe, secure and never shares it with third parties.
Not only this, but 2018 will see a host of new features added to the marketplace to help you get the most out of your buying, selling or swapping experience.
Paperclip is well-known for rewarding their users with great freebies and prize giveaways.
Starting next month, Paperclip will be running free monthly competitions, exclusive to MoneyMagpie users.
Our first is competition will give all MoneyMagpie users the chance to win a £50 prepaid Visa card!
For every item you upload to the marketplace, you will be entered into the prize draw for not only for the £50 prepaid card, but also for 2x £25 prepaid cards, a chocolate hamper and some great Paperclip swag for our runners up.
Winners will be announced on 31st January 2018.
