Following a chat with Trampt founder, Keegan, at DesignerCon last November, you could sense his level of excitement at the plans that he plans to roll out to Trampt over the course of 2019. This was followed up, at the back end of December, with Keegan writing about the Trampt Reboot heading our way! We figured, as we are super excited for this, the great Trampt news deserves a little spotlight from your friendly TTC, so here is what’s in store from Trampt in 2019….
It’s 2019, every website you visit on your daily adventure should be responsive to the device you’re viewing the website. It’s a travesty when a site is stuck in 2001 with their website structure, but that’s not going to be the case for Trampt in 2019 for they are building a responsive website. Meaning you’ll be able to fully enjoy your Trampt experience on your desktop, iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy 9 etc etc! This is a great development for Trampt!
The one aspect of Trampt that many Designer Toy collectors have been waiting on is the Trampt Marketplace. Not a simple feat to create, but one that Keegan and his Trampt developers have been working on and now it looks like 2019 will be the year when we see it rolled out.
Instead of building an e-commerce platform, Trampt have decided that aggregation would solve 90% of their Marketplace problems, and they looked for ways to improve peer-to-peer selling found on most forums.
So they group links to eBay, retails, artist shops, etc where you can buy a specific item. Trampt users who are Royale Members (!!), will be able to post direct sales or trades for items. Your one stop shop for buying your Designer Toys! The way Trampt should be!
With over 175,000 toys, customs, art prints, and original art pieces, Trampt is definitely one of our go-to places on the WWW. In 2019, Trampt are improving their Library with improvements to the item grids including larger images, hover states for title and actions (adding to your collection, comments, buying, and selling), and improved filtering system!
Trampt Royale Members!
Royale Members!! Yeah, we picked up on that too! As mentioned in the Marketplace section, Trampt Royale Members will be able to post direct sales or trades for items. Interesting. Perhaps tiered membership to Trampt is in the near future?! We look forward to more details!
So as we say a goodbye to old school Trampt in the near future, we look on with baited breath for new 2019 Trampt! If you wanna follow Trampt on Instagram, you can find them HERE and can be found on Facebook HERE. 2019, the year of Trampt! We are fully behind that. Roll on more Trampt!
