Despite the increase in the frequency of marketplace transactions increase, Universities remain detached from student-to-student commerce. By not facilitating student-to-student transactions, universities push student dollars off-campus as students resort to unsafe and unreliable platforms.

It’s not only imperative for campuses to support student-to-student transactions, but they must offer a comprehensive solution built for a mobile-first student base.
