Products and Services
There may not be any product to buy, but Skoob does provide an experience for its many users. People from around the world can interact with other people and explore, discover and share their favorite books with each other. It also acts as a platform for readers to discover new books, publishers, authors, and strangers to become friends with. Users get access to their virtual bookshelf where they can add their favorite books, books that they wish to read and other books that other users have recommended them. They can also rate the books that they have placed on their shelf and write their reviews which can be shared with friends or the general public.
One of the most exciting features of Skoob is that you can exchange your favorite books with other users on the website. All you need to do is sign up for the exchange program and list the books you wish to exchange. Afterward, you’ll receive various offers and requests from other people regarding the exchange.
People can also follow their favorite authors, writers or other people and take part in various literary groups where they can be among others with similar taste and preferences. You can also explore the shelves of other people and learn about their favorite books.
Skoob also has a special PLUS account where users can enjoy specialized search algorithms for finding their books and to see the list of all the people who are willing to exchange that particular book. People can also analyze other users based on their history of exchanging books before they even initiate an exchange. If a user doesn’t have a book for exchanging to get the desired one, then they have the option for transferring via credit.
These credits are received for submitting a book that a user wants, and it is later used for receiving the book that they originally desire without any exchange taking place between the people.
People can create an account for free on their official website which also has their smartphone applications so that it can be accessible from anywhere and at any time. It is a great place to discover and explore various books from many authors and writers.
