There are thousands of military families living in South Korea, along with thousands of expatriots. I see many groups on facebook where people try to buy and sell goods during their stay in Korea. Facebook has no organization and is not conductive to this format. I am proposing a website dedicated to simplifying the process of trading goods. I will build a website designed as a classifieds community where goods can be categorized and remain visible and searchable for longer than the 30 seconds it currently stays visible on Facebook before being driven off the page by other ads. The format will have a more professional presentation and allow more visibility to the goods and services being offered.
The intent is for this to be a completely free site to use (with several exeptions listed below). However, in order to accomplish this, I need donations to buy the hosting and build the software needed.
The only services that will be paid on the site (voluntary only) are
a) making an ad featured (visibility) and
b) a small fee for businesses advertising on a banner advertising system.
I need $500 to get the site running initally and about $100 per month thereafter for monthy server space and advertising. As slong as donations are sufficiant, the service will remain free to use.
