@steemshop turns one with a simplified system

in steemshop •  8 months ago

@steemshop was created a year ago with the intention of providing a system here on Steemit which enabled us users to buy/sell goods & services using the STEEM & SBD in our wallets.

It was my belief at the time that further accounts would be required to make it a functional system:

phase 1 steemshop accounts (version 2).jpg

The 4 phase vision proposed a further expansion of accounts by separating products from services before bringing it all together under one website from which live feeds of all the accounts would be easily accessible with further categories/accounts being added over time to meet demand.

How successful has this been?

Short answer, not very.

Without consistent reminders from the @steemshop account few people were even aware of its existence and fewer still took the time to follow the guidelines, creating posts with the correct tags, photos, price & description.

In short, the system was over complicated.

One account / One tag

With just one account the whole system will be simplified. If the demand is there, the system will be expanded organically.

The only guidelines will be these:


(one tag to remember)

  • If you are selling - describe your product/service/price & use the tag

  • If you are searching - describe what you are looking for & use the tag

  • If you have ideas for the development of @steemshop make a post & use the tag

  • It is your responsibility to be clear in your posts what you are selling or searching for.

  • It is your responsibility to create & honour terms & conditions of your sale or purchase.

this is a very good idea and if organised properly can be very successful. What kind of help would you require, I can help out.


You are a star! For now it would mean checking the active feed on a daily basis:


I will do this too but with two of us on the case we will be less likely to miss anything.

Let me know an email address for you and I will send the posting key for the account :)


ok great, my email is claudia.zunker@gmail.com

Ah yes @steemshop still lives! I hear you Sam, with so much potential I feel a team will help make this service a realization. I am thinking on this and will get at you in our private group. Let's do this! 👍


Potentially the old idea I had in mind could have worked with a team. Let's chat and see what comes. Great that @claudiaz is with us now too ;)

Thanks for your optimism bro!


Perhaps we can compile an ad for roles and responsibilities and post in our communities and discords?
Thanks @claudiaz for stepping up! :)


@kenistyles and @samstonehill why don't we set up a discord channel just for the shop. There we can create a general chatting area for people who have questions and we can have a chatting room just for us so we can discuss this further?


You're welcome to join my discord to discuss this further and I'm happy to make a channel for the shop there too. Of course it will be better to have a specific server for the shop, however to get started brainstorming and plan out some ideas you're welcome in there.


thanks @kenistyles will do so.


Hey bro. This is the existing discord steemshop group: https://discord.gg/8Pfk3qe

Have been working on the @steemshop banner today. Let me know your thoughts.

Great application!!!


errr... it's not an application

great bro . you might be one man today but we will be a million army soon. l like to use your tag with your permission.


No permission needed. Use at your own discretion but please remember it's a shop... so it's just for buying and selling stuff with STEEM/SBD :)

So if we offer products where is the best place to show them? Can these items be put in the official shop?


As far as I know the official shop (https://thesteemitshop.com) only sells steemit branded items.

If you have something you want to sell just make a post to advertise it and use the tag. I will resteem into the @steemshop account... and fingers crossed people will check out what is available from time to time!

extra applications without the need for extra apps ... great :D


sig etc ... vote resteem follow/followback (which i do, tit for tat) im not a bot lalala the whole shebang im truly sorry for the lack of comment but im in a bit of a hurry today


No need for apologies! Onward and upward we fly :)


given the nature of spacetime and the direction in which it goes there's hardly any other way :p

I am afraid I am one that got lost in the complexity. I will be using this system again. For my beekeeping mentoring, countrystores buy and sell, and my hosting services. I will be available to help in any way I can. Keep up the good work.
