17 Year Old! Launches Social Shopping Site…


Rasba is a social e-commerce platform created by a 17 year old, that connects sellers of the hottest brands and trends with young and hip buyers. Brands can create a simple, fast, and customizable store within the website while users can discover and buy awesome new products/brands. What makes Rasba special is the awesome social networking and affiliate program that buyers and sellers can take advantage of.

Miriam Brafman, the young founder of Rasba, didn’t have any programming knowledge when she came up with the idea for it. So she sought out developers through LinkedIn and other means. She now has a full-time Yahoo employee working on the site for her. She spends most of her time these days traveling to meet with retailers who might want to set up shop on Rasba.

Whenever a user buys a product from a Rasba store, it goes to a public profile page where the user displays each product he/she has bought (see and each time a user sells a product displayed through their profile, they get a commission, which varies from each product.

Nice one Mick! I’ll have a look, I don’t mind whether my customers are young or old, are ‘hip’ or have had a hip replacement – having money to spend is the main thing!!!
