Hoscomm is an initiative started by college students who realized the need for a portal where students can sell and purchase products/services amongst each other. Someone who is leaving their college could sell their furniture and unwanted products all in one place while on the other hand someone with a car could charge people from his own college to run errands for them. Our aim is to build a commercial community along these lines in every college in the nation.
We require the city and college you study in so that we can provide you with optimized search results that will only show you what people in your college are offering or requesting. This makes our portal more efficient and saves a lot more of your time.
We have just launched and are updating our database everyday to include every city and college that we can. Our aim is to cover every college in the country, so don’t worry. If you’d like you could request us to include your college by sending us the details and we will prioritize your college.
Students can request services that they can provide on our portal. For example if a student has a car, he/she can offer a transport service. You could even request for services for instance if you need help with an assignment you could advertise it. The services category can help make many students lives easier while also help you make a quick buck by offering something your peers need.
If you need some help with an assignment or maybe want someone to pick up some food for you, you can utilise our services option. Once you have made an account just click on the request a service tab, write down the title, a brief description, the time period and the maximum amount of money you are ready to pay. A warning though, your request WILL BE DELETED if the mentioned time period expires..
Maybe you saw a service request that you are capable of completing. You can click on the request and contact the student who needs help using the information provided. Once completed the student who initially requested it can delete the request or let it expire.
Being in college ourselves we really understand the importance of a quick source of income because we all run out of money too soon. When someone requests a service or maybe if you offer up a service you also must list down the amount of money to be paid. Then once you get in touch with the student who needs the service you can chalk out the payment details with them personally.
Students face a lot of common problems like lack of a car, problems with assignments etc. Through the services tab you can request or offer your help and charge some money for it at the same time. If you need help with an assignment or need a ride to the mall, well just put up a request and someone will reply. The services tab can help solve a lot of common issues as well as help students earn a bit of spending money for themselves.
