[/blockquote]After clinching a prestigious Award at the just concluded Social Media Awards 2016, Campus Bee news website is going to receive gushing tributes for Uganda’s first ever online campus bazaar; dubbed bazaar.campusbee.ug. The young, dynamic and vibrant youths have today launched the local university bazaar where sellers and buyers converge in a small place to carry out transactions; the Campus Bee Bazaar is not any different.
According to Boses Musiime, the Chief Technology Officer at Campus Bee, their latest product is an online marketplace for University students to sell and buy items from fellow students and well accredited sellers who are within the university’s jurisdiction.
“Anyone can post an item for sale and potential buyers can contact the seller and purchase the item directly- without the hustle of a middleman. Students can also search for cheap or good deals on items and services that are offered around campus,” Musiima reveals.
“We shall have dedicated staff to filter and moderate listings to ensure that our site is credible and not filled with spam,” he adds. “We live in a world where technology simplifies the simplest of things. We felt inspired to work on a service which simplifies the life of students since studying isn’t simple. The days of sticking posters to walls using porridge and glue are long gone because we are modern and cool.
The bazaar will show listings based on what university students normally purchase and want-we also know that transport is a major issue, so one can search for items basing on the locality of his/her university so that meeting a seller is easier, faster, and transport friendly. Sometimes students search for particular items but finding all listings in a particular place is hard. The Campus Bazaar has listings such as hostel rooms, coursework aides, house parties, events, fellowships and concerts- bazaar.campusbee.ug also has laundry service providers, hot campus girls to hang out with on weekends et al.
Click, post, sell, and someone will Click, Contact, and Buy… Let’s take our bazaar culture to a whole new level, from more than just a few weeks, to a 24/7 365 days Online Campus Bazaar.
