Boomerang is an online community that facilitates the requesting and delivering of those hard to come by items from across the channel.
Users become either requesters or deliverers (or sometimes both), where both parties agree on the item’s price before it’s all confirmed, and then pay securely through PayPal. Once both parties meet and the item is delivered, the money is then paid to the lovely traveller who delivered the item.
Boomerang was built as a mobile-first web app, compatible with a vast array of browsers and operating systems that allowed it to be used by as many people as possible. The platform featured smartly translated dual-language functionality, as well as real-time updates via automated emails and a user-centres progress dashboard.
