Dropbox acquires Sold

Recommended Posts

Dropbox is a name that's usually associated with online storage where it finds itself pitted against the likes of Google Drive and Microsoft's SkyDrive. But now the company could be branching out in a new direction with the purchase of Sold, one of the simplest online selling services ever invented.

 

Sold existed as an iOS and Android app and the idea was that a user uploaded a photo and brief description and everything else was taken care of by Sold -- no worrying about determining the best price or calculating postage. Or as Sold put it "doing all the dirty work for" users. There are no details about what will happen to Sold now that it has been, er, sold, but for now the site has been effectively shut down.

 

A statement on the Sold website reads: "As of today, our service will no longer be accepting new items".

The title on BetaNews was very misleading for this article, "Dropbox gets Sold". I do wonder what this will mean for mobile and Dropbox users.
