User 1 owns a bag, but he wants to buy a shoe and does not have the total amount of money needed for the shoe. Meanwhile User 2 who owns a shoe he is willing to part with, needs a bag but has no cash to pay for it. Both parties can agree on the value of their goods, if both are valued the same then they can exchange it directly without cash, however if one is valued over the other, exchange can happen with extra cash to offset the value.
Users are also allowed to upload free items unto the platform that they do not need anymore and these items can be accessed for free by users who need them. As such SwapsCity ng enables a go green ecosystem and shared economy where items and services are recycled and shared within communities.
