Peareo user Chris Miller of Dundee recently moved and found himself looking for new kitchenware. He found a set of Calphalon cookware on Peareo and made an offer to buy them. His offer was accepted and Chris met the seller at Peareo Safe Meeting Spot eCreamery in Dundee to make the exchange.
Chris said “From making the offer to choosing the location to meet, Peareo made the entire transaction easy and fun. I definitely would do it again”.
One of the biggest concerns people have when selling or buying online is where to meet to make the exchange, which is why Peareo has partnered with local businesses to help provide a safe environment to meet and exchange goods.

Buying, selling and trading things online has been around since the dawn of the early inter-web days, so coming up with a “buy and sell” site isn’t exactly a ground breaking endeavor. So why did we want to join the rest of the online sites and what could we do any better than them? Well that’s a great question, we did it for 3 reasons actually. First off we wanted to create a true community site devoted local neighborhoods, and what we mean by local is “neighborhoods located in Omaha”. What a novel ideal, right? Craigslists and Ebay don’t just focus on Omaha, they focus globally, from Latin America all the way to Europe and all surrounding continents. Which a focus that big I’m fairly certain they don’t care about the Farmers Market going on this Saturday in Aksarben or that Benson is the place to be on the first Friday of every month. We do care, we are from Omaha and we LOVE living, working and raising families here. We care about our community and want care about our neighborhoods, we in fact LOVE our neighborhoods. Which is why we wanted to create an online market place for US.
Secondly, we wanted to create a platform that was safe to use. During our research to determine whether or not Omaha needed something like Peareo we heard from countless people telling us they would love something like Peareo because they are afraid of Craigslist because the negative connections associated to it. We get it, Craigslist is creepy and doesn’t exactly scream “Hey Omaha, we care about you!!”. And I won’t lie, personally I am even afraid of Craiglists, which is why I have never used it. The last thing I want is to go pick up tickets to a show in Benson and end up in the trunk of somebodies car! After hearing this we knew we had to create a platform that gives users a sense of security, a sense of community and a sense of trust.
And finally we wanted to figure out an easy way to remove the negotiation factor out of a sell or trade. We spoke with a lot of people who hated negotiating in person or online. The thought of endless emails going back and forth negotiating a deal is enough to turn people way from selling or trading anything online. And it’s not an uncommon feeling, I personally dislike negotiating, which is probably why I buy a car every 8 years so I can avoid the whole “let me go talk to my manager” scheme. So we created a simple point and click selling process that handles the entire negotiating for you.
We hope you like Peareo because it’s designed by people from Omaha for people who live in Omaha.
