Home to Ebay, Craigslist, Google, Pinterest, and a plethora of online startups, the San Francisco Bay Area provides a launchpad for WISHTRADES’ success while New York meets the demand for a wide variety of tradeable goods and services for users to “trade up”. With its robust design, WISHTRADES facilitates and streamlines these transactions online.
People awe at the success stories of individuals who have “traded up,” gradually acquiring more and more valuable items after starting with virtually nothing. Shaahin Ataabaki, co-founder of WISHTRADES cites the example of the Southern California teenager who started “trading” possessions online, and after fourteen trades, landed a Porsche Boxster from an outdated cell phone. He also cites the example of the “One Red Paperclip,” the powerful story of a young man from Montreal, Canada who trades a red paperclip for bigger and better things until he reached his goal of obtaining a house. “The possibilities are endless when it comes to trading online. WISHTRADES gives users the opportunity to explore these possibilities,”
