Children’s Clothing Marketplace Totspot Launches on Android

TotspotChildren’s clothing marketplace Totspot has launched on Android devices, giving parents a new way to buy and sell gently used clothing and accessory items from the comfort of their own homes. Using the app, parents can create private profiles for their children, allowing them to browse items easily, based on the exact sizes their little ones currently need.

screen1136x1136With a design inspired by Pinterest, users can browse items in a picture-heavy grid, or search for items based on specific keywords, like a type of clothing (“coat”) or clothing brand (“Old Navy”). Users can customize their search by price range, gender and clothing or shoe sizes, among other details.

Each item is listed alongside its sale price and cost of shipping (based on item weight), as well as clothing condition, like “New Unused” or “Excellent,” as examples. If users find a parent with a similar taste in fashion, they can follow that user to keep track of all of the items they’ll post going forward. Users can also “like” specific clothing items, or post comments and questions for the owner to read and respond to.

When users find an item they’d like to purchase, Totspot sends a prepaid, addressed label to the seller to simplify shipping. The seller receive 80 percent of the transaction total, while Totspot keeps a 20 percent commission.

“Launching Totspot for Android is a huge milestone for our platform and community,” said Vijay Ramani, CEO and co-founder of Totspot, in a statement. “With this rapid expansion, Totspot is now everywhere a mom is. Totspot provides no-sweat shopping so moms can quickly find the perfect sparkly holiday dress, new furry boots or the latest in outerwear to keep kids warm and fashionable this winter.”

Totspot is available to download for free on Google Play. The app was previously released on iOS. Totspot recently raised $1.8 million in seed funding for its platform.
