The new platform made for mums that takes the hassle out of selling online!
Every parent is familiar with the problem; babies, kids (and pregnant bellies) grow, but our clothes do not! Keeping up with the ever-changing wardrobes of growing families means we are often left with mountains of barely used clothing and empty pockets.
Melbourne mum of two, Sarah, has made it her mission to solve this problem with her online platform, Jumping Jack, which is dedicated to simplifying how Aussie families can buy and sell second hand baby, kids and maternity clothes.
"Babies and kids outgrow their clothes so quickly, and it can put families under so much pressure," Sarah says.
It is estimated that a baby will have outgrown 3 clothing sizes by the time they are 6 months, and up to 8 sizes by the time they are 2 years!
It can be hard to keep up and so frustrating when you buy items that they barely get to wear. Many of these clothes end up in landfill, simply because itís too hard for parents to sell them, putting enormous pressure on both families and the environment.
"Selling our stuff online has become a challenging and frustrating process for many families - resulting in us storing way too much in our house, or giving up and sending it all to waste facilities."
Thatís why Sarah has re-imagined the buying and selling process for busy families to take the hassle out of selling online, with innovative functions to make it easier and safer for busy families.

How It Works:
Jumping Jack is an online marketplace designed for parents to buy and sell childrenís clothing and accessories.
Parents can choose to list their own items, or have Jumping Jack to do the work for them by sending in a 'clean out bag' of their items.
"As a mum of two, I know how busy life can get, which is why I have created a platform that is not only simple and safe but that also gives parents the choice of how they want to sell."
For families that elect to sell their own items, they can be confident in knowing that the Jumping Jack marketplace is safe and secure, with transactions going through PayPal and without the hassle of hagglers and no-shows. Sellers can choose to set their sale price and get paid as soon as their item sells.
"I love taking the stress out of selling online, giving parents confidence and control over their sales."
For families who donít have the time to photograph and list their items for sale, Sarah has a new service where they can send in a clean out bag with their items and have Jumping Jack do all the work for them.
"Itís great to be able to offer families a choice in how they want to sell. Do it themselves, or have us do it for them. Either way, the process is super simple and helps put money back in their pockets whilst helping to do their bit for the environment too - itís a win win!"
Why Youíll Love It:
Now itís so simple to make some much needed space in your home, put cash back into your pocket and do your bit for the environment!
When browsing for items, Jumping Jack is just like an online shop - with detailed categories for size, brand, type, age, gender. Itís so much easier to find the clothing you want and like, which of course makes it easier for sellers to sell too!

Sarah hopes Jumping Jack will be the refreshing change fellow Aussie parents need, enabling them to clear the clutter in their houses, boost bank accounts and help other families access affordable high-quality brands. Plus itís good for the planet too!
