What this means is that with the app one can independently connect directly with buyers and sellers online from anywhere at any time. Just like the other peer to peer trading apps, the Pepapa app is more dynamic in bringing buyers and sellers, closer to each other.

How Does This App Works?

If you have ever traded on the OLX or Tonaton, then this app should not be puzzling to you. The app works similar to that of these two platforms but with extra plus features which may not be available on the other platform.

This will ensure that your transaction will end up with each party being happy with what he or she has gotten from the trade.

The app as I said is designed to make the life of the thousand-plus users of the Pepapa platform simple and ease.

Security-wise, according to Pepapa they do not think only about selling and buying but also about your security.

They provide the almost-perfect platform for you to conduct your open trade. Once there is a mutual agreement between the buyer and the seller, Pepapa encourages each party to exercise due diligence by choosing a secure place to finalize the transaction. That, no party should send or receive the subject of trade prior to the meeting of the two parties.

What are the flaws of the app?

Every good thing has its downsides. Pepapa is not an exception. The app as seen is somehow still in the development stage and like any other app, there are some bugs which needs to be fixed.

Most of the users of this app have lodged a complaint about their inability to register for an account on the app whiles others also said the app crashes most too often. However, in our test of the app, we didn’t face any of such issues.

A quick chat with the providers of the apps shows that they have taken note of the feedback and will do their best to fix the challenges.

Being an infant platform which has just evolve to add up to the already existing platform, the Pepapa app, if properly manage and maintain will have a great impact in the Ghanaian peer to peer trading platform. The success of the app will also depend on the ability of the developers to constantly include the feedbacks they get from the users and into each update.
