Company Summary

ThingShare runs a web/mobile platform/marketplace that enables gamers to easily (frictionless) list video games they own & find video games to rent. ThingShare makes the user to user shipping process simple. Our current focus in on the video gamer and how to help him/her save or make money. We're hoping to expand this beyond the video game sector to other verticals. Collaborative Consumption needs to be as easy as ebay or craigslist for everyone
