Tophatter is a live marketplace for the entire world! The auction house is virtual of course and you’ll find live auctions online every day where buyers purchase sellers items in a wide variety of categories. Not only is tophatter a fantastic community where you can to purchase items at super low prices but buyers and sellers also connect and some even develop friendships!
It operates just like a real auction house. Bidding on items was exciting and addictive, and really brought out my competitive spirit. The best part is that it is so easy to use! Daily auctions are hosted on the site where you can place live bids for items like jewelry, accessories, home decor, crafts and so much more!
So here’s how it works:
The auctions are held in online rooms with a virtual auctioneer. Anyone attending the auction can chat with each other, you’ll see the conversation pop up in a bubble over the person’s head.
Each individual item up for auction is called a “Lot” and each lot usually takes 2-3 minutes to auction off. Bidding starts on each lot with a set opening bid, set by the seller and it will list the item’s description, seller’s name & shipping cost. Each bid increases the going price for the lot. The amount the “lot” increases for each bid is set based on the total worth of the lot. The final winning bid is the price at which the item will be sold. When you win an item it’s so easy to pay, just use paypal, credit or debit card.
Tophatter has a really neat feature where you can have them text you to let you know that an auction is about to start. Let say you see something you would like to bid on but it’s down near the bottom of the queued items up for auction. All you have to do is click on the item you have your eye on and then click “Send Text Message Alert” and enter your mobile number. Tophatter will text you a few moments before the item goes up for auction. This way you don’t have to sit in front of your computer waiting!
I think this is a really great site and if your like me, looking for a great deal then you will want to check out Tophatter!
