iScrap App Launches New Website, Including Reported Prices for Peddler Customers
The time has come for the iScrap App Team to announce what they have been working on over the last six months. Since back in 2011 when iScrap App launched, the goal has been to bring the most relevant and important information to scrappers across the US & Canada. The mission is to connect scrap yards and their customers in a more current form of communication the online world on their website and mobile apps.
Now available on the iScrap App mobile and desktop website, peddlers will be able to report scrap prices in and around their area when visiting the scrap yards near them. Logging in with a social media profile, users are able to post prices for any materials listed with the Premium Scrap Yard or Basic Yard that they visit. Users can choose what kind of metal (or metals) they just sold to the scrap yard and the price they received based on market value.
Peddlers can also review and check Reported Prices around their area from other fellow users. There will be a date stamp and the price reporter’s name associated with it, so users will be able to see how relevant the price is for that day. There will also be a flag option if the price that has recently been reported seems to be a mistaken amount or the system is being abused with incorrect information.
This new feature will allow all daily visitors to the iScrap App Website to interact and contribute to the scrapping community. It will provide information to those that are looking to get the best price for their scrap metal in their area. Premium iScrap App Scrap Yard Members will still have the option to post their own prices on their iScrap App Profile and should always be taken as the primary source of information when looking for current scrap prices.
Besides the new Reported Prices feature, there are some new changes to the iScrap App Website, including a brand new homepage design and interface. With users in mind, the iScrap App Team wanted to create something that would be easy to navigate and simple to use. With the new designs, it is easier and quicker for users to get the information they need, whether it be reported prices, contact information, location directions, company information, or hours of operation.
Along with the new redesign Premium Scrap Yard Members, will be able to upload new photos and videos showing off their facility and what their business looks like. This will allow iScrap App users to connect more visually with the scrap yards in their area. Also Premium Scrap Yards will be able to add more information about their company history or their company logo. The iScrap App Team feels that this will help bridge the communication and interaction gap between scrappers and the scrap yards.
The iScrap App Team is moving forward by allowing our users to share and research their local scrap prices with other users. This free feature is now live on the iScrap App website and mobile site, will allow those in the industry to have a voice and contribute to the scrapping community even better than before.
