These peer-to-peer business innovations range from share economy insurance platforms to beauty bartering services that are designed to connect vendors with consumers who are seeking convenience and affordability.

In addition to e-retailer platforms and shopping apps that close sales with the click of a button, other notable examples include P2P yard work platforms that connect homeowners with gardening enthusiasts who are looking to earn some extra cash.

Similar examples include premium car insurance platforms that allow subscribers to receive top services while sharing costs with fellow drivers. P2P pawn shops, lending platforms and secondhand exchange marketplaces round off this list of peer-to-peer business innovations. These particular businesses allow users to trade antiques, heirlooms or collectibles in exchange for monetary funds that are offered without hidden fees or interest rates.
