For consumers looking to buy products or services at great prices and for sellers looking to list their own products and services, galoo.com provides the answer.
Galoo is a radically different approach to buying and selling online which has the potential to completely disrupt the traditional way we price goods and services, unlocking real value and bringing a correction of the market, globally, in alignment with social values.
By offering the reverse buying system (patented by galoo), buyers are able to purchase products or services in one of two ways. They can make a direct offer on an advertised price for a product already listed, or they can create their own request that is sent to sellers worldwide, at a price they wish to pay. In order to strengthen their enquiry, the buyer is able to invite friends through online social networks to join their request. This results in sellers offering lower prices for a higher number of orders.
For some products the price listed by sellers might already be acceptable to the buyer. If this is the case, the buyer can buy the product directly through the galoo's price comparison partners. Once a product or service is purchased and the transaction completed, the galoo savings calculator will display the amount the buyer has saved by using galoo. Should the buyer wish, there is an option to contribute part of their savings to a charity of their choice through the galoo save and donate system.
By offering an all-in-one service, users of galoo save time, money and effort in finding products, services, sellers and buyers that they need. It is this co-existence that sets galoo apart. Buyers and sellers are free to negotiate prices and haggle for the best buyer requests. It's an age old concept which has at last been delivered with a revolutionary twist into the digital age. If you're looking for the best buyer requests, want to save money on all your purchases or want targeted customers, sign up now.
The executive team is the "galoo" that binds the buyers and sellers together! (though we need to work on our sense of humour).

They do, however, share a skill set that allows them to help consumers get more for their money, whilst enabling entrepreneurs to expand and launch new and existing ventures. They pride themselves on seeking out and creating opportunities for robust economic growth and trade facilitation across the globe.
