Today I wanted to talk to you about a new online auction website. When you think about an auction website, many thoughts go to the popular EBay.
However, the difference between these two sites is that Tophatter is a live virtual auction! The great thing about a live virtual auction is that you don’t have to wait days to find out if you won the item that you placed a bid for. As in any auction, the highest bidder gets the item.
Tophatter offers so many items from beauty, designers purses, jewelry, to electronics and etc.
The only thing that I recommend is that you do research. You don’t want to pay more than what you would pay at an actual store. Unless, it’s a hard to find item, or something that has been discontinued. I’ve seen other people pay way more than $50 for an Urban Decay Naked palette. Which just does not make any sense to me, but I guess that’s a great thing for sellers.
Also, just like EBay anyone can sign up to sell things. I sold two extra Temptu Airbrush Systems that I had, and was very pleased for what it was sold for. I even received payment for it right away. That’s actually one of the requirements. Once you win an auction, in order to continue bidding on other items, you have to make the payment right away.
So far, I’ve purchased 3 items from this site. Two of them I purchased a few months ago, and one of them I just bought, so I haven’t received it yet.
Here are the two items that I won (both brand new, never been used) :
Mac Eye shadow: Kelly Green
Swatch on the left is with Urban Decay Eden primer. Swatch on the right is without primer.
This retails for $10. I paid $6, which included shipping and handling!
Stila Major Lash Mascara: Black
This retails for $22. I paid $12, which included shipping and handling!
I really love this site! Oh and another great thing about this site, is that most of the sellers will ship internationally.
