Hangar Swap Debuts New Marketplace System
ORLANDO, FL - The past 7 months Hangar Swap has been breaking ground in traffic with over 10,000 unique visitors each month. The timing is perfect for the endless growth on the newest online marketplace in the industry. “We’re fully prepared to take on this corner of the market.” explains Rachel Lietzke Payne, creator of Hangar Swap. For just little over two years that Hangar Swap has been around, it has taught Payne what she needed to know to implement her ultimate goal: the launch of the new Hangar Swap platform.

Hangar Swap will debut its new system on Tuesday, April 3, at Sun N Fun in Lakeland, FL. The team will be demonstrating how the Hangar Swap site will perform in the coming weeks during migration. With over 2,000 customers and reaching 200 sellers, Payne has learned a plethora of knowledge to add to her endless notebook of goals for Hangar Swap. Not only has Hangar Swap took a major face lift, but this new systems gives the sellers and buyers exactly what they’ve been asking for.

Hangar Swap is now completely mobile friendly. You can buy, sell, and work on your inventory from your phone or tablet.

Excel Doc Upload
Sellers can now upload their entire inventory from excel documents. All parts stay “pending” until the seller chooses to make them “live.” Potential buyers can still search the pending items in the Hangar Swap search. Once upload, you can edit your inventory from anywhere.

Parts Radar System
The Parts Radar system allows the seller to sell their “pending” items to anyone searching for that particular part on Hangar Swap. Potential buyers can also put in a parts request that will go to a database for all sellers who participate in the Parts Radar system. This function establishes an easier search for schools, fbo’s, and other large industry leaders all in one place for a fraction of the cost of other parts locator systems.

Services & Opportunities
Utilizing a classified approach, Hangar Swap has made it easy to advertise for your services or find someone in the industry for your specific task.

Wanted Section
When a potential buyer can’t find what they need, they can post a wanted ad. It is in the same format as the Services & Opportunities section.

Ebay Sync
The number one request from sellers was the ability to integrate their Ebay store. Anyone who sells on Ebay can have their store synced to Hangar Swap. The system also ensures that you won’t sell a part on Hangar Swap twice with their integrated system.

Other Features
-Previous sold research: Seller’s can research how much past items have sold for to find the best price for their item.
-Communication between buyers and sellers have been introduced to a whole new level with in system mail and the ability to have comments on their items.
-Seller dashboard: The dashboard shows more features to help aid the seller with orders, communication, shipping, statistics, and research.

Hangar Swap provides the industry with over 7,000 parts (and growing) from over 300 different sellers from around the world. Sellers can list easily, communicate openly, and search in a clean environment. At 5%, Hangar Swap is half the commission cost of other online marketplaces, with a cap for larger priced items. “It’s important to me that we provide a lower commission fee so that fellow aviator’s have extra cash to go flying,” says Payne. Hangar Swap is also free to list as many items as you want, never having a time limit.

When Hangar Swap was launched, not many people knew it existed. But because of Payne’s relentless marketing and drive to make Hangar Swap known, it has grown at an astronomical speed. The online marketplace made its official debut at SUN ‘n FUN in 2016. Since it’s debut, daily numbers have doubled and officially tripled in November of 2016, making it’s growth rate over 100% in less than a year. The online marketplace projected to double it’s hits before Sun N Fun this year, but now has exceeded that expectation with reaching 10 million hits a month after the new year.
