Plick is a marketplace app where anyone can buy and sell quality second hand clothing. One could say it's the Instagram of second hand shopping. We believe that good user experience is about a good mix of quality and quantity. We enable our users to easily browse through thousands of fashionable clothes, shoes & accessories, follow the styles they love and stay trendy. We have come to find that it’s the quality of the ads, rather than the app itself, that motivates our users to come back. That's why we manually monitor every single listed item to assure the quality of the garment and the visual appeal of the ad. This is what makes us unique.
The core team is based in Sweden and consists of people with business experience and knowledge in tech, branding and fashion. Our goal is to create the market leading e-commerce platform for second hand and vintage clothing.
With our validated technology platform, we are now ready to enter a growth phase and expand our business. And now we're wondering if you want to be a part of this exciting journey with us?
WHERE ARE WE AT
The app has already been download by more than 10 000 people, uploading over 17 000 items. 1 out of 3 items are sold, 30% of them within 2 days. 90% of all listed items are shared on social media, which contributes to a constant expansion of the user base.
Plick is a beautifully designed iOS app with a clear focus on user experience. We've put the clothes at the forefront of our interface because they're the vital component that drive sales and keep users coming back. Data is collected and analyzed in a web administration platform that allows us to monitor and constantly improve the user experience.
A PayPal payment solution is currently being tested and validated, and is scheduled to release in the app within the coming months. This will make it easier for users to make a purchase and pay instantly whether you're in the same city or in different countries. It will also open up the opportunity for us to charge a commission fee on transactions.
To further increase availability, a down-scaled web application has been developed. The web interface allows users to browse through the thousands of items uploaded on Plick, from any platform and device.

THINK SECOND HAND FIRST
We know that our mass consumer lifestyle has a negative impact on the world, and we know that we could contribute to a positive change if we would actively make more conscious choices.
It takes about 8,000 liters of water and 2.7 kg more or less hazardous chemicals to produce 1 kg of clothes – which corresponds to about 3 items.
Buying 20 second-hand garments has less environmental impact than buying one newly produced garment.
Second-hand clothes save 97% of the energy needed to manufacture new clothes.
