And it’s all just a click away.
According to Clarke Levidiotis, a digital content marketer at Fiverr, there are “so many feature updates coming out that are really going to take this platform—that’s already amazing—to the next level.” Though founded in 2010, the company is on an incredibly upward trend as it heads into its 10th-year celebration.

Carvana is already reinventing the face of car shopping. Historically, the car-buying experience has always been largely in-person and dependent on two humans making a deal. Carvana takes that process and brings it into the digital age. Advertised as a better way to buy a car, Carvana is 100% online and puts the power in your hands, not a dealership. Functioning similarly to a car vending machine, shoppers can browse thousands of used vehicles, choose a payment plan that works for them, and even get their shiny new used car delivered straight to their door.
