The best way to make this idea successful is by developing a reliable app with no bugs and really easy to use. Then a good marketing campaign will make everybody to know about the app and start using it. In this way, the more people that use the app, the more products that will be available, and the more attractive the app will be. The main advantage is that there is no app like this in USA and if we become widely known we will dominate the market.
