The Berlin start-up company gebraucht.de is an innovative and transaction-based second-hand online marketplace. gebraucht.de offers complete and integrated transaction-based shopping: The buyer chooses a product and then selects one of the payment options. The product is subsequently directly shipped to the buyer by a dispatcher. The buyer is able to track the shipment at any time and gebraucht.de will not release payment until the customer has had the opportunity to inspect the merchandise. Tamedia invested in the German start-up company in 2017.
