We have developed goHoppity to enable parents and amazing creative people to sell children’s clothing and accessories to each other.
Our inspiration for the site came from always having a pile of clothing from our children that had not been worn much, but no longer fitted them. We initially tried to sell them on Facebook and Gumtree but kept getting people who would not turn up or who wanted to come when only one of us was in with the kids, which we didn’t like as a stranger would come into our house to pay with case for the clothing.
We also wanted to extend our membership to amazing sellers who develop unique products for parents as we have bought lots of these over the years and really treasure them, such as covers made out of a selection of clothing our children wore to pictures customised with their names etc. We also like the idea of supporting local businesses.
Therefore, we set out to develop a website that had a safe way to pay with PayPal, Stripe or Card so no cash had to change hands. We also thought posting items to the buyer would remove the stranger coming to your house element.
The main principles of goHoppity were then formed as:
We live in Scotland and we only allow UK based sellers and buyers;
No transaction fees are paid to goHoppity;
Sellers have a monthly subscription fee to pay for the web hosting;
List as many items as you can with no limit;
Sell as many items per month as possible and we don’t take any commissions;
Security in place on the website using the same system as banks do;
Independently verified as secure and safe by Macfee Anti-Virus, which is shown on the home page; and
Buyers buy direct so no commission is taken by goHoppity.
As we are just new please spread the word and come over and visit us at www.gohoppity.com
