WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—A group of students at Purdue are making it easier to purchase things around campus.

The group is creating a website named DormStall for all Purdue Students with a Purdue email. Their goal is to provide a an E-commerce website where students can purchase, sell, and trade items.

Students can focus on selling old textbooks, phones, or even game consoles. Sidharth Krishnamoorthi said this site will be a convenient alternative for Purdue Students to purchase common items.

"But the problem I noticed was after you post it, it will get pushed to the bottom and no one knows where it went. Textbooks, game tickets, anything, bicycles, a phone, xbox." 

Ambassadors for the new website like Derek Dervishian see its potential for the future.


"When they start introducing it to their friends and it just starts growing exponentially from there."

Student Josh Purevich can't wait to try it out when it launches at the end of the month.

"Oh wow, this is actually a need and I could really see myself using this to its full extent."

The site is currently going through beta testing and will be live by the end of January.
