Hi ladies I am back today with a different kind of post. First let me start of by saying this post is sponsored by Tophatter, but all opinions are truthful and honest. I did receive a $10 credit to shop on this site/app for a complete review. So if you love to shop and are looking to shop fast this review is for you.
Tophatter is the world’s fastest, most entertaining marketplace, with live online auctions every day in a wide variety of categories. (but you can buy items without auctions as well). I have downloaded the app on my iPhone, but they also have a website as well. So if you don’t want to use it on your mobile devices, you can access it on a laptop or desktop computer also.
Tophatter features shopping events with incredible brand name fashion, jewelry, beauty items, electronics and more, for prices as low as $1 in some cases. But unlike Amazon, eBay or even popular flash sale sites like Gilt or HauteLook, Tophatter’s shopping experience is fast, fun, unpredictable and really exciting.
How to get started
First you have to sign up for the site/app. Once you have done that, you are ready to bid on items or buy them outright. There are usually multiple auctions going on at a time. There are different tabs such as live now, that showcases new and bestselling products. The browse tab, which lets you browse by categories and price. Bidders can also heart a item their interested in buying and it will notify them when it goes for auction!
Bidding Vs. Buying
When bidding you click on the item you want to bid on and read the description. Make sure you carefully read the description, as with anything else you buy on the internet to make sure it is what you want. When you are sure you want to bid on that item, click the bid button and it will ask you to confirm you want to place a bid. Beware the auctions are immediate, you know within minutes if you won. (90 seconds to be exact, lol!) Each room has an auctioneer, who controls the bids and gives you play by play on bidding and finally says “sold to (persons name)”, Once you have won you will have 24 hours to pay.
The Buying option is a lot faster then the bidding option, but unlike bidding you have to pay the buy it prices, were as you may get it for a lower price if you bid. For people who don’t like to bid or wait to see if they won, you can just buy a item outright in 90 seconds or less as well.
Prices can vary depending on what you are looking to buy. There are items as low as $1.00 while other designer items can be as high as $200 +. They have brand names such as Coach, Micheal Kors, Kate Spade and Urban Decay. What I like about is that is has items for every budget, so everyone will be able to find items to purchase.
Overall I had a great experience with this app. It was super fast like they stated. After finding items that I was interested in I hearted them to get a reminder when a new auction would start. Although I didn’t get to actually participate in an auction, it appears to be super easy and simple. I did get to purchase a buy it now item, the transaction was simple. They give you several options to purchase such as using your debit, credit card or a PayPal account.
After browsing I, finally chose to purchase a Women Chiffon Long Sleeve Shirt Dress in green. The dress was reasonably priced and it shipped out 4 days after my purchase. Super fast in my opinion. I have yet to receive it , but I will notify you of how I feel about the shipping and product review in a later post.
you will receive a $10 buyer credit that can apply to your first purchase of $11 or more. SWEET! After you purchase your item come back a leave me comment letting me know your experience!
