This is an awesome app 5/5
Although it will cost you a lot of money if you get addicted to it and it does take at least 3 to 4 weeks to get your stuff in but everything I’ve ever bought on here showed up so have fun and bid on some things
Great App!! 4/5
First purchase was a Bluetooth smartwatch and I rate it four stars because the delivery took a month and four days. But other than that the watch is absolutely amazing! It fully works and is easy to use.
The product I got looks and is nothing like describe to me that’s false advertising
This is a great way to save money and it’s fun too!
over indulge 1/5
By for ur information
just because i got carried away one time i was kicked off the bidding site for good. The customer support is not very supportive in customer service. i would like to be allowed back on the site as i stated to Tophatter reps and yet they are rude and mean.
I would like you to respond thank you 1/5
That would be nice if you responded to talk about some serious issues on hand.
I absolutely am addicted to this app and site. It is a rush!!!!
All Fake Junk!! 1/5
Everything I ordered was Fake! Or false descriptions! When contacting support they were no help! Now I'm stuck with junk unless I want to spend twice what I paid to return it. Will be filing a complaint with the BBB!

I have just learned that the prices of things adding shipping at it together is sometimes more thing you have.
Rad tech 3/5
It’s a good site. Watch & learn. Be sure you want it. Check it out. Oh cool!
Miss leading 1/5
Do not expect what you see on the photos that you will get in the mail it is a scam and it’s wrong
they do it.
I placed three orders and none of them were the pictures that were described when I bid them.
items that were not even close to pictures
beware when bidding on this website
CHEAP OVER SEAS ITEMS ! BEWARE 1/5
By Gus Lavidas
most of the items come from asia and they seem to post inaccurate pictures to make the item listings look much bigger then how tiny and cheap made they really are. then to return you must be knowledgable to know how to make special labels to ship back over seas and can cost u more then what any item u are returning cost u and u paid at check out. waste of time and just only a few good legit listings that are actually good items but when its up on auction you can not see description on what u really bidding on due to the clock timer and simple bidders getting for fraud!
They need more legit sellers and not show a items in a person hand that shows item is as big or bigger then what he is holding and only for your items to arrive and be shocked the money you paid for something that cheap plastic and tiny as “DOWNSIZING”
reply to developer post:
problem is not many like my self know how to fill out over seas label and what is required and its very complicated to do.
the post office employees do not help with filling the over seas labels and one item cost more to ship back to Asia then its worth to refund as it does not make sense all.
Sellers on the site should not show items and make bidders think its bigger then they are. Also most of my items i won and got honestly are truly cheap made and no quality or actual size as a buyer would expect. You have a good idea but when u have a fast clock ticking u have no time to look and read the items true description or see actual size or where it is made. sorry for the negative post put im just being honest

False Credit 1/5
By Fun fun 79647994322
If it was possible to give a lower rating I would. I was sent two messages telling me I was being given credit. After bidding on an item, the credit was never applied and I never had the option to apply the credit. I cancelled that order, because I was denied my credit. The credit offer was still valid by he more than $10 rule and the time period allotted. I tried, once again, with a $5 credit given to me for beginners, and was once again denied the option to apply the credit. After cancelling, yet again, another order, I’ve been blocked from bidding or purchasing anything from Tophatter for the next week. This company is ridiculous and is offering credit without actually giving it to customers.
This wed site is saling fake stuff I order something from them right when I open the package the item fall apart
Buyers beware 1/5
By Jsebv Ayala
If anyone wishes to purchase items that are Fake, counterfeit, Not Real than This app site is for you! The retail price that are shown are not true! Example- (true example) They would advertise and item like an Apple Watch and put a retail price of $799 but what the customer really gets is an item that’s an imitation ,cheap and worth at most $5.00 dollars , i guess that’s the reason why the bids/price are so low. Again if anyone wishes to purchase Fake ,imitation/counterfeiting items >than this app/site is for you! Definitely don’t recommend!
I got some nice items from this auction
Great site 3/5
So far they stand by the merchandise. Delivery could be a little quicker. If the seller does now respond, then you contact Tophatter and the get you your money back. Sometimes you don’t even have to send the product back.
Very Disappointing 1/5
I have ordered 3 different items and all 3 were a waste of money. The pictures are deceiving and 2 of the 3 only worked for one day. Very Unhappy with Tophatter and won’t be ordering again
I’m in love 5/5
By Mike D 007
Best auction site ever!!
Something's up and the in-app reviews in products are fake 2/5
By Not a sub
There is no way, that any $2,000 product can be sold for only $5. Also, all the reviews clearly fake. For one thing, you can't write a review on a product, another thing is that all the reviews on products say "Came to my house very fast" or "Great product, glad I got it" or even " This "light" is the best and arrived very fast!." Sometimes the product mentioned the "reviews" have "" for some reason. I've made an order for beat headphones for $7, to see if the product is legit. I'll write a review after I've got them.
Might update this review 2/5
By Freaken sweeeeet
So far the bid that was won. The quality felt cheap on it. The battery the dash cam came with was dead and finished on arrival . Unless other orders improve I will change my rating
Neat site!! 4/5
By My Daddy is a King!
My only complaint is, it takes too long to receive most orders.
Shippers and sellers 1/5
The people in China shipping these items must hate Americans. None of my orders have shown up on time. When they do they smell like someone intentionally puffed cigarette smoke into the packaging and put ash into my orders. All but one item has had to be trashed. More than half of the items are nothing like described. And they never show up when they are supposed to. Most of the descriptions are very misleading and false. And all of the items are cheap worthless items. The marked out prices are ridiculous. A cheap Bluetooth headset resembling the ones Apple put out had a retail price of $600 and starting bid of $1. I won’t the item for $10 and they sent one of the earphones when the description clearly said head set and shoes two earphones. And there are many more instances. I definitely fell for the excitement and purchases allot of items more than half I still haven’t received and it’s been more than a month. The ones I have received were not as described and/or did not work or they smelled like cigarettes with ashes in the packaging or the package was empty. Don’t download this app. It’s a scam in a half.
Cheap-cheesy-overpriced items 1/5
Most of the items auctioned on this site can be purchased on online shopping sites like Amazon for a fraction of the cost. I’ve bought on TopHatter coins that cost me $42 while on Amazon, they go for $6. It’s a rip-off!
Do some research 3/5
Do some research before buying anything. 95% of the electronics I purchased were ridiculously small compared to the photos in the site. The Jewelry...they look astonishing but don’t be fooled. Most of them are plated. Look into the catalog and find the high priced jewelry, research and click the heart for a reminder when it is being posted. But stuff that are repeatedly posted for days on end, there's no reason to think they're low quality. If you get them for a buck why free shipping, more power to you.
Nothing shows up 5/5
By Ryan schmallenberg
Rip off (cont) 1/5
By Dirty P 1975
On top of my last comment that you be paying more than you would if you bought the item online, it’ll take over a month for you to receive it in the mail. Complete rip off
Great prices and great items almost all the little things that make a difference
Best Policy 5/5
After I received a product broken, I was refunded my cost immediately without a hassle. I didn’t receive one product and was advised that if it didn’t show up in a couple of days they would refund my money. They did. I will be looking for this at auction today.
Entertaining- fast- honest 4/5
Delivery in most cases is slow.. product quality better than I expected for most items..
Fun site but be smart and read descriptions 4/5
Most of the stuff I have purchased is cheap quality stuff made in China. The shipping can take as much as six weeks. Some of the descriptions and pictures are deceptive. For example; a wrench set pictured may represent that your bid is just for one of those wrenches, not the whole set. Or a tablet in a case is only for the case and not the tablet but the buyer only knows that after bidding. The photos and descriptions have to have more transparency before I will recommend the Tophatter site. I enjoyshopping this way but there is s consumer learning curve in Tophatter. Let the buyer read the full description of an item carefully before bidding.
Think twice.... 1/5
The return policy is great. However....To return items to China would have cost me more than double The purchase price.it was not worth it. The photograph of the two wigs a purchase said human hair. When they arrived I learned what they were synthetic.
I was on able to contact Tophatter to let them know that I would not be returning items for refund as I indicated because the price of shipping was more than double what I paid for the items.
Know what you’re doing 3/5
App works really well, bidding can be addicting, most merchandise is NOT top shelf. It is too easy to spend too much money on stuff you don’t need. Thus only three stars.
Watch for the really good deals, and know what you are bidding on. Also look at shipping cost for the cheap stuff.
Fun to bid 5/5
So far so good! Love the deals.
It is just too fast 3/5
I like the concept and I do like the app., but if you don’t know what the selling item is, once you look, the item likely will have sold once you read the description. I wish there was a way to look up item descriptions an d then bookmark the items of interest. Then I wish the app would only show you your bookmarked items. So then one could bid on a more focused basis.
Poor quality 1/5
The merchandise used to be great but now you never receive some and most of the things you get are poor quality and don't work
Mainly mainline Chinese junk 2/5
Very misleading products from China!
My Credit Card Got Charged $89 instead of $10 1/5
I got a fraud alert from my credit card company. I had to close account and now go online to change all my "autopays"..
Coincidence or Not... .? Please
By T Jay 52
Tophatter allows too many postings of items wherein the posters want to get your email address so they can sell it.
Fun and amazing
Loving it 5/5
Got 2 pairs of headphones for way less than in store . Very simple & easy
Buyer Beware!!!! 1/5
By D's Wife823
Just to let you know... a majority of the products ship from China. So when your item(s) come and they are completely fake or not new or better yet they don’t work like the description says, You get to pay double if not more to ship them back. You email customer service and you get the same blah blah email in response every time. “ The seller has met their threshold, shipping falls to the responsibility of the buyer.” Every time, no return shipping label. You pay to ship it back and you are our double the money you paid for the initial item. The seller that scammed you gets their product back and you are out money and then they turn around and sell it to someone else. Or you keep the crap and they get paid and you are out that money, so it’s a LOSE LOSE SITUATION! Just please be aware of what you are getting into before you buy!
Very entertaining and I love the rings I've purchased. Also if you make a mistake the transaction is dealt with very speedily.
Pretty awesome 5/5
Youll prolly feel ripped off if you bid high, but you can get some really awesome stuff for just a couple bucks.
Delivery seems to take way to long
The Kylie lipstick box was broken and torn
But contents ok
By peaches 28
Everyone loves a deal. Especially if you’re bidding against someone who recognizes a good thing when they see it.
DO NOT PUT YOUR CARD INFORMATION IN ON THIS APP!!! 1/5
I had my debit card information stolen and used until my account was negative. I’ve heard about this kind of thing happening on the Wish app but not Tophatter. Not until it happened to me. If I could give this scam of an app negative stars I would.
No hassle app 5/5
This is legit. I love this app. I know many people are hesitant about receiving shipment from China because of not getting what was advertised; however, this company will refund every red cent if you are not completely satisfied and offer free returns. I’ve ordered 100’s of items from this website and have yet to pay for return. Well worth it!
Keeps cancelling orders 1/5
Used several different payment methods that work and it keeps refunding the orders saying they couldn’t be processed... bummer, they had some pretty cool stuff
Horrible customer service! 1/5
I ordered a item and did not receive it though it was showing as delivered. I did everything they requested. Look outside my home, check with neighbors and loved ones to see if they picked it up. I live by myself so that was easy. Verify my address online to make sure it is correct. And speak to my mail carrier. Nothing, it was no where to be found. I contacted their “customer support” and was told they could not refund or replace the item since the tracking said it was delivered. So now I am out money and and my item. Absolutely horrible policy!
