Addoway is an online marketplace where shoppers can buy from their friends and the merchants they trust. Startup/business
Addoway is an online marketplace that helps you shop from sellers you can trust. Our mission is to guide you through the most trustworthy shopping experience imaginable by allowing you to make more confident buying decisions.
Through our integration with Facebook's Social Graph, we recommend merchants your friends have purchased from in the past and merchants that your friends know personally. And by aggregating a seller's reputation, credibility and influence scores, we offer an inside look into the seller before you buy. Making this information readily available, we are able to reduce the anxieties associated with marketplace shopping and offer a more pleasant shopping experience.
