Developers & Store Owners

We’re always looking to add more secondhand marketplaces to the 2Hand search engine.

If you’d like to have results from your platform appear next to Ebay, Freegle, TrashNothing and Preloved, we’ve got a few simple ways this can happen:

  • API – most ecom platforms provide an interface for other applications (like us!) to access product listings. We’re currently working with Shopify and BigCommerce to produce platform apps you can simply connect to your online store. In the meantime, we just need read-only API access. Get in touch and we’ll walk you through the process for your ecom platform.
  • Data file – you can provide us a daily listing of your products in any common format. We’ll process the listing and turn it into searchable results in 2Hand. We can either pull the listing from your server, receive it as an email attachment or provide a landing area for you to upload the file to every day.
  • Scraping – if neither of the options above are available, we can always scrape your website for secondhand items. This takes a little longer for us to do but the end result is the same – products listed alongside those from other secondhand marketplaces.

If you’d like to have a chat about getting your products on 2Hand, please just drop a mail to office@2hand.co.uk.
