Sold focused their services on people too busy to use Ebay, offering users a special algorithm that provided a much better average price on goods. Their services also included packaging solutions, adding that extra value for their users. The company had secured $1.2 million from big name investors like Google Ventures, Greylock Partners and Matrix Partners.
The whole acquisition process took approximately 4 weeks, and the 9 people that make up Sold’s team will join Dropbox, creating a separate team within the organisation.
