What do you get when you combine a fun game and an auction site with amazing discounts into an app? iBuySell!
Here is how it works: a new item is shown for sale every minute, and the price drops until you freeze it and buy it. But don’t wait too long, or someone else might buy it out from underneath you. I saw an Urban Decay Naked2 palette for under $25!
iBuySell has jewelry, clothes, shoes, electronics, phones, tablets and laptops, accessories, beauty and health, home and living, toys and games. There are two ways to shop on this online shopping site. There is “Live Sale” and “Static Price.”
It’s like a game of strategy: as each second on the countdown clock ticks by, you watch the price drop lower and lower on these Rapid Fire sale items. You have to decide when to freeze the price and buy your prized find (click the blue FREEZE TO BUY! button). But you also have to guess if there is someone else who has their eye on your desired item too. It’s a game and a live auction at the same time. I lost out on a lot of items that I liked by waiting too long, but it is so much fun when you get the item you want at a great price! Who doesn’t love discount online shopping?
All items for sale within the app take a turn rotating into being offered as a rapid-fire Live Sale item. If no one buys the item, it returns to its’ standard static but discounted price.
When an item is not for sale as a Live Sale, it is available at a static price that is still a deep discount over retail price. However, you still have to act fast if you see something you want since iBuySell has a lot of users with great taste and items sell quickly. Plus, you never know when a Static Price item might turn into a Live Sale item and disappear!
This is one of the perks about this online shopping app: Unlike the standard seven day auction period we’re used to on other auction sites, you don’t have to wait to buy your item. You see it; you can buy it right then!
MY EXPERIENCE BUYING ON IBUYSELL
I am looking for a new everyday Spring tote that will hold all of my stuff but looks sharp at the same time. I found three amazing ones on iBuySell. They were the Rebecca Minkoff Large Mab Tote Bag, the Kate Spade New York Cape Drive Hallie Leather Tote in Pink, and the Rebecca Minkoff Unlined Feed Shoulder Bag.
I really couldn’t decide between them, so I asked my Instagram followers to help me decide, and the majority loved the Kate Spade New York Cape Drive Hallie Leather Tote in Pink. Excellent choice, Style Chicks fans! I thought that the Rebecca Minkoff Large Mab Tote Bag would be great for work as well. One of the bags was already purchased when I went to get it for myself, and I’m guessing it was one of my Instagram followers, but good for them! That is the fun of iBuySell – you have to move fast before another savvy buyer picks out the same item!
