'Yerdle' Lets Its Users Earn Credits from Items They Give Away

In order to encourage people to give up items they no longer use and help them serve a new owner, Yerdle was launched as a peer-to-peer second-hand store. New Yerdle users are rewarded with 250 credits, which is the currency that's used to buy items, rather than money. To earn more credits with Yerdle, users must give away more items that they find are no longer of use to them. This includes an assortment of items, including everything from toys and electronics to household appliances to wearables.

To further the community aspect of the service, users can make arrangements for a free local pick-up or organize the shipment of an item across the United States.

Rather than implementing a traditional monetary system, Yerdle challenges its users to see the value of purchased products in a new way.
