Yardaroo - Our Team
Andy Mitchell (Founder, CEO), Andrew Then (Co-founder, Business Development)

Yardaroo started from humble beginnings in the summer of 2018. A textbook definition of a bootstrapped startup, founders Andy Mitchell and Andrew Then have dedicated their time and resources to building a business that will change the on-site buying and selling experience forever.

Founder/CEO Andy Mitchell as a lifelong learner and problem solver. When he saw people in his own neighborhood having garage sales with no traffic or sales, he immediately started to formulate a plan to help boost sales for local sellers. Now several years into the young life of Yardaroo, he has built a marketplace platform that is ready to permanently change local on-site buying and selling.

Co-founder Andrew Then brings a decade of professional selling experience and domain knowledge to the team, helping to drive product and business development. His background in appraisals and estate sales keeps the Yardaroo product moving forward, building value for everyone from hobbyists to professional sellers nationwide.

Yardaroo is the comprehensive marketplace solution for on-site sales.

Yardaroo is the comprehensive marketplace solution for on-site sales.  Our innovative offer system allows buyers to make offers on multiple items within a single picture, enabling sellers who have large lots of items to quickly upload products and take offers without the need to itemize product listings.

The benefit to this type of marketplace is obvious for on-site sales where there are lots of random items and high turnover.  Garage sales, estate sales, consignment shops, flea markets, farmers markets, conventions and pop-ups are all great examples of sales that would thrive on Yardaroo.   Any type of liquidation sale can leverage our marketplace to move inventory online quickly.

Yardaroo offers an integrated and intuitive point of sale system that is accessible to anyone, from the hobbyist garage saler to professional sellers and small businesses.  Yardaroo Pay is a QR code-based POS system that works on any smart device, only takes minutes to set up and enables sellers to accept all major credit cards on-site.  If a buyer can’t be on-site, sellers can easily collect credit card payments remotely by sending a payment request via text, messenger app or email.

Most sales have multiple people working it, whether they are family members, friends or employees.  Yardaroo’s Cashier Mode enables sellers to allow other people to accept credit card payments under their account, streamlining the checkout process.  Cashier’s don’t even need the app to be installed on their smart device.

Yardaroo increases trust and integrity through community engagement.  Buyers and sellers can stay in touch with each other via our integrated social media platform.  People can follow each other and engage with each other’s activity.  Our internal messaging system offers a convenient way to communicate and ask questions about sales.
