Search for a word or upload an image of the desired product/service. A top notch matching algorithm identifies your need and searches for it into a powerful database (of local providers). If the product is available, the app shows the three best options according to a selected criteria (price, quality, delivery time, etc.), if not a chat window is opened so you can negotiate with the three best providers. Packaging and delivery may be handled by the same provider or by a express courier (charging an extra fee).
