    About Faircado - Making re-commerce the new e-commerce

    Faircado is at the forefront of the sustainable shopping movement, making second-hand the first choice for consumers everywhere. Faircado simplifies the search for quality pre-owned items by aggregating listings from various trusted platforms, ensuring a seamless and eco-conscious shopping experience. We’re building Faircado to disrupt and make circular the €200 Billion resale market in Europe, making the planet a better place at the same time.

    Currently, the online second-hand market is fragmented, messy, and time-consuming, so Faircado is creating a movement where the experience of buying second-hand is better than buying new. To date, we’ve built a browser extension that finds second-hand alternatives as you shop online as normal (check it out it’s pretty cool). We're on a mission to scale our user-friendly platform to millions of users, making a tangible impact on the environment and consumer habits.

    Recognized as Product Hunt’s “Product of the Day” on Black Friday, our innovative approach to second-hand shopping earned us the prestigious title of winner at Slush 100, the largest investment pitching competition of its kind. Consequently, we’ve received investment from top-tier investors like General Catalyst and Accel. Moreover, Faircado has been acknowledged as one of the top German startups to watch, a testament to our commitment to growth and impact in the tech and sustainability sectors.
