The Eureka Moment
The idea originate from the problem which I and almost every student in this country faces, problem of buying and selling Books. I and my other team members come from a middle class background, so we don’t have enough money to buy new books every semester.
We go to traditional book markets like Daryaganj on Sundays for buying second-hand Books, but finding books there and then bargaining with them is a very painful job. So this is our pain-point and we want to solve this by bringing the whole ecosystem of Second-hand books Online.
We are presently dealing with buying and selling of Second-hand books. Problem of buying books for new class, new Semester is the problem almost every student faces in this Country. Most of the students come from Middle-class family and poor family so they cannot afford to buy new books after every 6 months.
They choose to buy second-hand book but finding right book in the market and then bargaining with Shop-keeper is a very painful job. So we thought of solving this problem using Internet by bringing the whole ecosystem of Second-hand books Online.
In India despite of the presence of some big players in the Indian Online book selling market, there is no one big name which deals in selling and buying Second-hand books of a varied genre. There is a big gap and a great need to solve this problem.
Also due to time constraints, not many people are able to visit traditional old book markets (like Daryaganj in Delhi, Church Street in Bangalore). Even if they do, it involves a lot of hassles, and bargaining, which we believe the modern urban population would like to avoid.
This problem is larger in Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities where there is no traditional markets and people have to rely on some small shop far away from their home. The market is very large and problem is even lager which can be only solved by bringing all this business Online.
