Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/08/2014 -- Seniors with mountains of used textbooks. Freshmen who need textbooks and furniture at garage sale prices. Students are a marketplace unto themselves, sometimes needing things and sometimes having too many things.

Many news sources have reported how criminals have exploited sites like Craigslist for theft. A new site, Explorite.com has launched offering Boston area students a secured classifieds site on which they can safely sell items such as textbooks, household items, or find jobs, internships and roommates.
Explorite.com is a secured online college marketplace. The site was created by students for students, helping them to save both time and money. Explorite.com currently offers its services to students at universities and schools such as Boston University, Northeastern University, Umass Boston, Boston College, Tufts, Emerson, Simmons, Wellesley College, and Lesley College.
It works by allowing students and faculty to list items they have for sale like textbooks, furniture, cars, clothing or just about anything a college student might need. The website also allows people to post rooms or apartments for rent, car-pooling needs, or any other type of goods or services.
Explorite.com is free for all students and is more secure and safe than any other classified sites because all members are verified by logging in with their .edu account. Account set up is easy and advertising allows students to interact with each other.
