Launching UpRoot.in

After several weeks of development and alpha testing by friends and family, we are releasing a stable version of a website I have been working on recently.

Ladies and gentlemen, please point your browsers to
http://uproot.in

What is UpRoot.in ?

A simple website to post classifieds online for free. It has been exclusively created for Indian users, and covers all districts in the country (600+).

Everything about the site is geared towards simplicity, including:

  • the look — very few graphics + dynamic interface
  • the operational model — zero intervention between seller and buyer is our policy.

What is it not ?

While making the site, one path we have not treaded (nor intend to tread) is social networking. We will likely add more features in the future to facilitate collaboration between groups of users. But we don't expect it to become a core feature of the site.

The reason is — to keep things simple for everyone, especially novice internet users.

A brief walk-through of UpRoot.in

Here are some of the features of UpRoot.in

Categories

Every Ad has to be given a category at creation. This helps viewers to easily find what they need.

Ads that offer and Ads that want

Broadly speaking, every Ad has either something to offer to the viewer, or wants something from the viewer. This too is specified at creation time of the Ad, and helps viewers to find exactly what they need.

Specifying the location

Viewers can choose to filter their Ads

  • by city
  • or by state

They may also see results for All Locations in India.

Privacy

We are very concerned about the privacy of users of our site.

There is a built-in method to contact users, without needing to divulge either the seller's or buyer's contact information until each party voluntarily chooses to do so.

Membership

While viewing the website is possible for all, membership is needed to post a new Ad.

Membership is free, and to become a member you just need to confirm your email address and choose a profile-name.

Stay tuned

Thanks for reading through!

Please use the site whenever you need to buy / sell anything, and send us your feedback!

We will stay tuned :)
