    About Us

    Welcome to Jawa!
    We’re super excited to launch our marketplace!

    To make sure we get it right, we’re starting with a closed beta, allowing us to test features before opening the platform to a larger audience. We are looking for feedback from you so that we can make this the best PC part buying experience for enthusiasts and new builders alike. Come talk to us on Discord and tell us anything you want about the platform-- and how we can make it even better!

    Founded in 2020, Jawa helps gamers and PC nerds to build their dream computer.
    The first sold item was our own

    Jawa Story

    Jawa was founded by gamers

    Jawa was founded by a group of gamers frustrated by the experience of buying and selling PC parts on the existing marketplaces. We knew there had to be a better way -- so we’re building one!

    Great parts are sold at reasonable prices

    Our Mission

    Great parts are sold at reasonable prices

    Our mission for Jawa is to be THE community where great parts are sold at reasonable prices between gamers (not scalpers).

    We know there will be hiccups along the way. As we fix bugs, roll out new features, and listen to your feedback, we’ll be working hard to make this the best place on the internet to gather, discuss, and buy and sell PC parts.

    Our Core Values

    Good parts. Fair prices

    Good parts. Fair prices

    We pre-vetted all of our Jawa Verified Sellers to make sure that they are aligned with our values. That means they have working, high quality products and they aren’t looking to price gouge.

    Better and simpler transaction fees

    Better and simpler transaction fees

    Our beta version will have no transaction fees! Once we expand our audience we’ll charge lower fees than eBay and other marketplaces

    Buyer and seller protections

    Buyer and seller protections

    Trust is one of the most important factors in considering which marketplace to use. If you encounter an issue, we are committed to making it right.
