Most of us mums have probably experienced the frustration that comes with selling or buying stuff on Facebook marketplace! So it’s exciting news that a new marketplace has arrived and its offering a better way to buy and sell baby items.

Founded by parents and Bondi locals Nicole and Rob, Markot is a curated online marketplace for the most sought-after baby brands out there. So how is it better? Ok, this is where it gets exciting!

Firstly, there’s no contact between buyers and sellers. Markot does it all through an easy-to-use app (they have a website too!). That means there’s no more messaging back and forth, no more people asking for crazy discounts, no annoying questions – we’ve all had more than our fair share of all those.

Also, the way Markot works is making everything easier.

Let’s say you want to buy a second-hand pram.

You jump on the Markot app and search for the exact item.

Then, you can bid for it and try get a great discount, or meet the seller’s buy-now price.

When you buy it, Markot picks the pram up from the seller, takes it to its warehouse where they check it and clean it before sending it directly to your door.

So, you don’t have to go anywhere, and you end up getting a second-hand refurbished pram that looks like new!

And it also means that when you sell something, you no longer get strangers turning up to your door!

Overall this marketplace has so many advantages, both for you and also for the planet.

And in addition to the second-hand items (they call it preloved!) available they also have a wide range of brand new items for sale too.

Right now Markot is offering a FREE Bunjie Bundle (worth $35) for all preloved purchases before the end of February.

And they’d also like to offer Eastern Suburbs Mums 20% OFF all NEW items sitewide. Just use the code EASTS20 at checkout.
