Wallapop is a Spanish company founded in 2014 used to exchange used goods, similar to Craigslist as a classifed listings website.[2] The marketplace primarily is accessed via mobile app.

In 2014 it signed a commercial agreement with Atresmedia.[3] In 2015 it was cited as the startup company with the highest revenues in Spain with $1b of transactions completed using the app.[4]

In May 2016, the company was merged with Letgo but continues to trade under the Wallapop brand.[5]

Large venture capital investors include Mangrove Capital, Northzone and Eight Roads Ventures.
