Zaarly Anywhere, meet Ubokia Everywhere.
Ubokia, the reverse Craigslist where buyers tell sellers what they want, is releasing new capability called Ubokia Everywhere, which will enable any site on the internet to create its own unique marketplace of wants.
And the new update seems to be a direct response to sort-of-kind-of competitor Zaarly.

Y Combinator-backed RegistryLove is officially debuting its universal bridal registry service today, and it already has 3,000 brides-to-be signed up to use it. And 750 of those signups occurred before the website itself was even finished. That speaks to the demand – and also the potential – in the newly hot “weddings” vertical which has recently been under attack from all sides, from wedding websites to photo-sharing apps.

No single store has everything a couple wants to register for, and many couples would like to include unique items they adore from smaller merchants, or even local shops without an online presence, on their registries.« go back — keep looking »
