Refabd, An Online Store Providing Quality Second-hand Products For Homes

Jul 04, 2017

Seeing the gap in the second-hand product segment, the team of three software engineers, Durai Gowardhan, Rahul Varma and Vineeth Kumar decided to look at the prospect of purchasing used household appliances that were not more than four years old, refurbishing and selling the same with a six-month warranty. Interested sellers can log on to their website and upload information on the product offered for sale and their contact details. This is followed by a physical inspection of the product by a technician, negotiation of the price and final purchase. Sellers are invariably those leaving the city or those wanting to upgrade their product. The customer is also free to exchange the product after a few months of purchase in case of a choice to upgrade the product. Selling back the product too is permitted if the customer is leaving the city within 6 months of purchase.
