What was Sold?
Hi, friends! We're very excited to announce that Sold has joined Dropbox! As of today, our service will no longer be accepting new items.
We'd like to sincerely thank all of our loyal friends and customers who have helped us, supported us, and spread the love for us through this amazing endeavor. We started Sold to provide people with a service that took the burden of selling off their shoulders - by doing all the dirty work for them.
But even beyond that, we wanted to create something that affected people in a positive way. Something they had an emotional connection with. Something they trusted. After spending time with Drew and Arash, we decided that the move to Dropbox couldn’t be better – their roadmap includes exciting new experiences which align perfectly with our ethos of creating products that positively affect people. Going forward, the Sold team will continue working together to build these experiences, shaping the future of Dropbox for their 200M strong user base. It’s an opportunity too good to pass up.
We’re really excited for the new set of challenges ahead, and are absolutely dedicated to continuing to create great experiences.
If you’re a current user with items in the system, expect to hear from us with instructions on how to proceed and finish your transaction.
Thank you, thank you, thank you,
-The Team at Sold
We also want to thank our advisors and investors — Rich Miner, Kevin Rose, Lindsay Ullman and the team at Google Ventures, Reid Hoffman, Bill Kaiser and the team at Greylock Partners, Antonio Rodriguez, Dana Stadler, Jared Fliesler and the team at Matrix Partners, Nicole Stata, Dave Balter, Peter Blacklow and the team at Boston Seed, Dharmesh Shah, Greg Kidd, Matt Ocko, Eric Chen, Anil Dharni, Bill Aulet, Joost Bonsen, Joi Ito, Andy Lipman, Hiroshi Ishii, our friends at the MIT Media Lab, and all our advisors, mentors, friends, family, bartenders, and baristas.
What was Sold?
Sold was a service and iOS/Android app that took over the burden of selling.
With a few photos and a description, our pricing calculator would determine
the perfect price for your item. From there we handled the selling, the shipping,
and the payment. Our goal was always to get you paid so you could go on
about your life. And/or live your wildest dreams.
"I’d call the bigger vision behind Sold “micro-logistics”—the idea that with a little help, our homes can each become tiny distribution centers."
"If selling your iPhone is too much trouble, Sold might be the answer"
"Sold is an algorithm-powered concierge designed to get top dollar for your stuff."
