Bookie is an iOS app concept which my team came up with in a Design for UX class in 2017. Bookie enables college students to buy, sell and exchange textbooks in a quick and affordable manner. By creating an organized space that is user friendly, users will be able to easily find the academic materials they’re looking for and sell to other students within their community.
School Email Login
Requires students to register their accounts through their school emails. Our way to verify the buyers and sellers.
Buying and Selling
We will have two choices for the users: to buy or to sell. This allows for a level of organization that competitors like the USC "Free and for Sale" page of Facebook do not provide their users.
Series of questions about details of the book (title, author, edition, condition, class)
In-app Messaging System
Simple messaging tool to allow buyers and sellers to connect for transactions. They will always have option of their personal contact information but this provides an additional and safer option.
In-app Payment System
Feature to allow students to link their PayPal accounts. Allows students to keep the process streamlined and convenient.
Search capabilities will allow someone to be able to search a book by its name, author, or even the class it is used for.
Since we focus on providing the best experience for buyers and sellers, we will allow users to search and rank options on lowest to highest price. This ensures they are always getting the best deal.
Each book with have it’s listed price on Amazon. This is to help sellers find appropriate prices to sell at as well as help buyers understand how much they are saving.
