Here at Paperclip, we're always thinking of new ways to improve the experience for our fabulous users. Our Design and Development teams have been working tirelessly throughout the start of the year, drawing from user feedback, to create the perfect buying and selling platform. So, it is with great excitement, that we can finally reveal a shiny new version of the Paperclip marketplace...
So what's new?
The team have been working to add new features and improve the Paperclip user journey. There’s a lot more to it than meets the eye, so here’s a brief explanation of what’s new:
- Take control of your offers –you can now view and manage all your individual offers and how many views your item has had. Choose to accept, decline or message about the offer any time whilst the offer is still active.
- Buying and selling icons - help you keep track of your activity – beforehand, all item activity was placed under one icon which was combined to be the “trading centre”. After listening to feedback, it was clear that this was too confusing for users.
- Notifications all in one place - now your messages and notifications are under one icon for a cleaner and clearer user experience.
- Add item listings into a chat – remind your buyer/seller what item you are discussing by featuring it in your messaging thread and provide further photos if needed rather than changing your original listing.
Speaking about the new improvements to the platform, our Front-end Developer Harry said, "With the new version, Paperclip has taken invaluable feedback given by our user base and used it to make our marketplaces even better. We've revolutionized the trading experience with an aim to put ease of use at it's forefront, whilst supercharging their ability to monitor and interact with other buyers and sellers with speed and clarity across an altogether more streamlined platform."
Marketing Manager Justin added, "It's great to have the new version of the marketplace up and running before our busy Fresher's period! The feedback we had from our users has shaped Version 3 and we're really grateful for those who took the time to tell us what they loved (and what they didn't) about V2."
Whether you are a student, or a member of the global marketplace, we want to thank you for your feedback which has enabled us improve the Paperclip user experience. We're constantly looking for ways to expand the platform and give you more of what you want, so feel free to get in touch with your thoughts at: firstname.lastname@example.org
