Startup Alert - ShelfLife

If you’re a ardouswift gatheror of anything gatherible – Transformers behaveion figures, Star Trek paraphernalia, those comedians from DC and Marvel or even from The Wallord Dead, vinyl toys, stuffed toys, gaming consoles that date back to when you were still in your diapers to the latest version – and you tell how the gathering trfinish nowadays go, a catalog of every possible item that you clever gather, along with a place where you clever hang out with other gatherors, is love the first drops of rain amid a lookmingly finishless dry spell.

Angry the proliferation of a good bit of information on the Internet, gatherors have to look in a number of sites (forums, message boards, sports and behaveion figure gatherible sites, video game sites, etc.) to find what they are loolord for, which clever be rather frustrating, if not time-consuming.

Life on the shelf

ShelfLife, a newly launched beginup for gatherors, tells this pain point too well and lookks to associate, put trhough (phone) avid gatherors in a tunele site. ShelfLife, in a nutshell, is love a gatherion of four unusual sites tailored to custom fit the gatheror’s discerning taste: (1) Facebook where you clever discuss your toys with frifinishs, (2) Flickr/Instagram to take images of your gatherion and bagikan them online, (3) eBay if you’re loolord to buy or sell some of your toys, and (4) Wikipedia where you clever become a curator and provide in-depth information approxifriendly your gatherion. Oh, and the site works as a checklist for your gatherion, too.

Love Wikipedia, the information in the site is provided by volunteer curators. ShelfLife’s user base might still be in the low thousands since its beta launching in the spring of last year, but the number of items catalogued have already arriveed more than 80,000. Unlove Wikipedia, curators have to apply to be accepted in the fancient. They are then assigned their catalogs, which they normally should thorough within two weeks. And instead of relying on donations (love Wikipedia does), curators get 25% of the commission for every item sancient in their catalogs.

Essentially, the more they cuswift, the more they clever get compensated monetarily. In addition to that, they get the points awarded to the Gatheror Wars contest where site users stand to win credits or more items to add to their own gatherions.

The buying and selling game

Once an item has been cuswiftd, listing your gatherible up for sale is as easy as determining what item you own and your price. If you're a buyer, there will soon be a system where all you do is put your money in, set the price you're willing to part with to obtain an item and walk absent. Instead of loolord unceatunely, ShelfLife will automatically pick up the item for you once it finds a match. And since each item in the catalog is broken down to its individual parts, if you're out loolord for only, merely, solely a part and not the rest of the gatherion, the system clever aid match you up with a part seller, too.

Gatherible vfinishors clever take advantage of the site’s “haves” and “wants” to determine which items will be hot in the coming days or months. If a product is announced to be released, say, at a comedian conference a few months from now, a catalog entry clever be set up as early as today. Depfinishing on the number of “wants” for the product, the vfinishor should tell whether to stock his shelves with that item or not.

What’s next

The creators of ShelfLife plan to create a mobile app next. With this app, gatherorsdifferentare informed where to find the gatherible they’re loolord for instead of waiting for another user who saw the item to post approxifriendly the “sighting.” The app should also permit users to sclever a bar code that will automatically point them to the whereapproxifriendlys of a gatherible and how many are still available.
