About the project Edit

InterSchola sells surplus goods for school districts and public agencies on the online auction site EBay. Bidders can buy anything, from old flight simulators, to computers, binders, trucks, etc.

Interschola handles the whole process. They choose what can be sold, get approvals from officials, list the items on Ebay and handle the transaction.

Interschola takes a 35% cut and gives the rest to the school or government agency.
