“Before Panjo, we tried a mix of rules and plugins. Sellers were getting buried in a confusing pile of emails and private messages. Buyers suffered from poor search tools, terrible product presentation, and lackluster communication from sellers. As the community owners, we got sucked into dispute resolution. Panjo helped us improve the classifieds for everyone.”

- Rachel Blaustein,

“The Panjo team is responsive, agile and creative. The new source of revenue has been welcome. My marketplace is now much more visually appealing. I like the insight I now have into my marketplace activity.”

Our Story

Somewhere in Santa Monica at the end of historic Route 66, the Panjo team is busily toiling away every day to provide a great and secure experience for buyers and sellers alike.

And it all started with one man’s fixation. Panjo Co-founder Chad Billmyer is a hybrid and electric car enthusiast. (His first car was a bright red 2000 Honda Insight.)

After turning to web-based communities to learn how to get better gas mileage out of his hybrid, Billmyer quickly learned that buying and selling with fellow auto enthusiasts left much to be desired: Sellers flaked. Communication was slow. Payments were difficult.

Billmyer thought there had to be an easier, safer, and less frustrating way to buy and sell among like-minded community members.

So Chad set out to build a community-based marketplace that removes the fragmentation, frustration and fraud from more singular enthusiast transactions.

With the support of cofounder Tom Gerken, an epicurean, Panjo was born.
