About four and a half years ago, I started my journey in the world of software development and digital commerce.

Together with my partners, we launched FlareAIO, while we started the EscapeNotify project with Marten Enders. Our main goal from the beginning was to maximize profits for our users. At a time when hype sneakers and electronic items were trending, we provided them with the best tools and monitoring systems to maximize profits for a minimal monthly fee.

The concept proved to be very successful over the years. But over time, our interests changed and we looked for new challenges. Marten began to focus on new side projects, while I, together with my partner, turned my attention to the Amazon and arbitrage market. This market was still fresh and largely untapped at the time, unlike the increasingly saturated sneaker and retail market.

One of the main criticisms in our earlier work was the dependence on brands such as Nike or Adidas. When these brands increased their stock levels, prices dropped immediately, leading to disappointment among our members. Our ambition was to change this. Despite our efforts to save the market, brands continued their practice and some products eventually lost value.

However, the love of software development remained deeply embedded in us. Our passion to develop products that add value to others remained unchanged. There was nothing more fulfilling than the positive feedback from our users thanking us for helpful updates and the profit they generated.

When the FlareAIO and FuzeLabs projects faltered, we made the difficult decision to close them after a few years. Thousands of hours of work and customer satisfaction were at stake, but we knew a change was needed.

During this time, we continued to work on EscapeNotify. Leon Bendzko and I were constantly exchanging ideas about Amazon since both of us were selling on Amazon very successfully, while Marten and Dominik were working on their own projects. Dominik, who was working on NexosSolutions at the time, was also looking for new directions.

As neither of us was completely satisfied, we came together to pool our experience. The result: we decided on a new software project, this time on the Amazon platform. Our vision was to develop software that would allow users to effortlessly browse stores and resell profitable items.

We stuck to this idea throughout 2023 and worked intensively on it. We brought in developers from our old projects and dedicated ourselves to the work. The vision of launching such a product was so deeply rooted in us that we didn't want to let it go.

After about eleven months, our product was ready. We were amazed at its functionality and once again decided to go for a community-based product with a user group that could generate real profits.

On January 15, we launched our project to a great response and after a successful beta phase. The development was a rollercoaster of emotions - full of desperation and creative solutions. We put all our heart and passion into this project.

Now we are fully focused on taking our project to the top and making sourcing as easy as possible for our users.

We hope you enjoyed this little story and look forward to welcoming you to ProfitPath.
