Replictivity is an open marketplace community for passionate people - artists, entrepreneurs, makers, tinkerers, manufacturers, and early adopters. Interacting and building. Sharing words, pictures, and ideas. Building teams. Prototyping dreams. On Replictivity, sellers can create a storefront and sell inventions, prototypes, and parts (no matter how bizarre, wacky, or ingenious) directly to early adopters and innovation-hungry consumers; additionally, skilled sellers (makers, woodworkers, tailorers, 3d printing enthusiasts, etc.) can apply to fun fixed-price job projects, submit bids, and be hired by inventors and entrepreneurs in a team setting to help create a prototype.
Here are some sections of the site that you'll hopefully find pretty cool.
Sellers can create a storefront and sell goods and services directly to consumers. By specializing our marketplace for inventions, handmade items and parts, we make it easy for entrepreneurs to build brand recognition (as their products will not be listed alongside large, established brands like in other marketplaces), lower the cost of customer acquisition, and stand out as the innovative leaders in their category. It will also, most importantly, help innovative products maintain visibility and make it easy for early adopters and innovation-hungry consumers to browse, find, and buy inventions prototypes, and parts (and also fixed-priced services).
For shipping, sellers will ship direct to consumer as we don't hold any inventory. They'll be able to pick the quantity they want to sell, select (and limit) the countries they want to ship to, set different shipping rates depending on location (and whether it's a single or multi-product order), and input the sales tax. It's pretty easy to set up and we're using Paypal as our Payment Processor so it's secure.

Hubs are unique, creative content (such as Articles, Q/A, Tutorials, Product Stories, Industry News, Startup Developments etc.) that users can create to drive traffic to their shop, leave comments, and to interact with potential customers outside of the standard shopping cart workflow.
