Student Marketplace and Peer-to-Peer Payments: A Perfect Pairing
CampusWall Incorporates Venmo Payments into their Online College Marketplace
SEATTLE, Oct. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — CampusWall, the campus-specific marketplace for colleges and universities, has incorporated Venmo Payments into its website.
The CampusWall forum allows students, staff and administrators to buy, sell and share goods and services within their campus community. Venmo is a simple and free way to collect money and pay others from a mobile device. By linking your debit card, credit card, or bank account, you can instantly pay friends for anything from meals and drinks to textbooks and furniture.
“Since our inception, I’ve had the vision to tap into peer-to-peer (P2P) payment functionality, as it is a logical fit for our P2P marketplace. It’s been our goal to offer additional alternatives to the traditional exchange of cash when buying and selling through our site,” says Tina Snyder, Founder/CEO of CampusWall. “CampusWall and Venmo are a perfect pairing, and we are excited to partner with them to include such a great payment service.”
Venmo will also be teaming with CampusWall in an upcoming nationwide campus promotion.
CampusWall offers a virtual bulletin board specific to a campus community that affords the sharing of resources and services, promotes safety and savings, and cultivates sustainability.
A finalist at SXSW’s V2Venture Competition last August and awarded Seattle TiE’s startup of the month in December 2012, recent engagements include partnering with Babson College’s Experiential Learning Program and integrating via single sign-on with University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
