Flooting

Description

Flooting makes it fun to find bargains in your local area and super easy to find new homes for stuff you're done with. When something is listed on Flooting, we wrap it in a virtual bubble and float it around the neighbourhood on our game map. People looking for a bargain play a simple strategy game of catch the bubble to try and win it.

Flooting's game based approach offers some great benefits.

  • Stuff goes from free: if things are less popular, they go completely for free. if stuff is more popular people use points to help them try and win it. Points can be earned or purchased
  • It's super simple: to win everyday stuff is generally one click. if stuff is really popular some strategy and skill is required to play the game, which adds to the fun.
  • No payment issues: flooting gives the person listing an item all the points played to win it. this removes the need for person 2 person payments, making it safer and less hassle.
