Zappy – The Revolutionary Sharing Economy App

Introducing Zappy – The Revolutionary Sharing Economy App

Given the continued economic strife so many countries face in today's world, it's little surprise that the sharing economy has continued to see substantial growth – with thousands of households in the UK alone still feeling the effects of the 2008 recession, many of us are struggling to manage work (full- or part-time), raising our children, and accomplishing all the daily chores we need to: times are hard, and feeling as if you simply don't have the time can only make them even more difficult.

So, what is the sharing economy, and how can it help you save much-needed money & time?

The sharing economy covers various areas, but most commonly-recognised is buying or swapping goods/services for another – for example, you may rent your home out to holidaying families in exchange for a stay in theirs, or rent your car to people if you don't use it and feel you can actually earn money from it rather than letting it gather dust.

This really began with online peer-to-peer marketplaces (such as eBay and Amazon, where countless second-hand goods are sold day in, day out), and, once people realised they could safely and securely do business with complete strangers from around the world, the idea of swapping services caught on.

Various startups have begun building enterprises around the sharing economy, and the industry continues to expand at an impressive rate: this is expected to increase to $335billion in the US by the turn of 2025. One such enterprise is Zappy – a new sharing economy app set to revolutionise the way in which people find the services they need with just a few taps of their smartphone.
