Company description

For moms with kids between age 0-8, TotSpot is the best place to discover, shop and sell beautiful previously loved items.

Kids rapidly outgrow clothes, toys, baby gear (strollers, high chair, car seats) during their growing years. This leaves a huge mass of unusable inventory that parents try to rid. On the other hand, parents are looking to acquire used items for their kids and save money on purchases that their kids are guaranteed to outgrow.

TotSpot focuses on making the life of a busy mom simple by providing a great shopping experience on the go. Similarly, listing and selling kids items on TotSpot are extremely simple and takes less than 30 seconds.

 


Team
Business model

TotSpot is a marketplace for moms. We are building a mom-centric app that makes kids pre-loved items easy to dsicover, buy and sell. TotSpot will take a 10% transaction fee for every local transaction and a 20% transaction fee for every transaction that requires shipping. As part of the customer experience, TotSpot will also provide sellers with pre-paid shipping labels and market their merchandise. 

Competitive advantage

- laser focus on mobile and user experience (see it to believe it)

- focus on building a strong community, not just a marketplace

- partnerships with physical mom clubs and communities
