Trade freely, globally, and privately with NXT FreeMarket. FreeMarket uses the NXT blockchain to store all items for sale, so there is no centralized service that has your personal information, and there is no single-point of failure for the FreeMarket system.
Messages between buyer and seller are encrypted using the public-key cryptography built into NXT. No personal information is exposed in an unencrypted form.
NXT FreeMarket provides you with the features you need to buy and sell physical goods anywhere in the world. NXT has a built-in "Digital Goods Store," but it is not designed to handle physical goods, which require shipping options, special instructions, and photos.
Why is FreeMarket the right choice for private buying and selling? Check out these features and decide for yourself:
Built for Privacy
Built on the NXT blockchain, FreeMarket does not know who you are and does not store your private information in any way.
Include a main image with items you sell, and up to three additional images. Images are completely optional.
Pay with NXT
There are no third-party processors to take a cut of your payment. Payments are made directly from your NXT wallet.
Include multiple shipping options when selling an item, and price them differently. Let your customer choose.
FreeMarket features a simple, elegant user interface. Avoid the clutter of on-line auction sites that hurt your eyes.
Search for items using a variety of methods: by item title, tags, category, seller, or just see everything and filter down.
The cost to post an item in FreeMarket is just 7.77 NXT, and the only other fees are for actions that use the blockchain - 1 NXT per transaction, so an entire cycle of listing an item, being paid, and communicating with your buyer can cost under 10 NXT (approx. US$ 0.10). No percentages of your final sale price, no high fees.
The cost of using FreeMarket as a shopper is even lower. You only pay for network transactions, so a purchase can cost as little as 1 NXT in fees.
FreeMarket automatically encrypts messages between buyer and seller, keeping your information private. No IP addresses are logged anywhere.
Payments via NXT are built right in. No need to leave the app to send a payment, no need for PayPal or another third-party payment processor who has your private data.
FreeMarket lives on the NXT blockchain, so there is no single point of failure. It is resistant to attack by anyone who would deny you your right to trade peacefully.
NXT FreeMarket was created by an international team of developers dedicated to preserving and expanding your right to trade peacefully without interference.
We hope that FreeMarket will help you take advantage of the opportunities afforded by a global, low-cost, censorship-resistant marketplace.
