When I have money, I absolutely love online shopping! I enjoy sitting at my laptop and shopping. Of course I also enjoy shopping at the local businesses and mall, but shopping online is just relaxing and great therapy for me 🙂
I am extremely visual, and when I shop online, I like a great online shopping experience with tons of selection and product to look and choose from. The site also has to be fast and EASY to navigate. I have been checking out a site called Higgle, lately and I think I am in love…
My very first Higgle!!!
Think Pinterest and online shopping in ONE place. I love how visual Higgle is! Higgle combines the Priceline and Pinterest online worlds and now shoppers can influence everything on the site from current inventory to new products to pricing! Too much fun and way too addicting if you ask me..
I joined Higgle the other day and have been browsing it ever since. I love seeing what everyone is into and ‘higgling’ a price to see if I win the item! It is not only exciting, but SO much to check out too.
As soon as I log in higgle, it will show me what is trending. I can browse those or I can go to my ‘feed’ and see what was handpicked for ME. I can also explore higgle and see what is new! The categories at the top of the page make it really easy to navigate. The categories make it simple to figure out where you want to go or what you want to do.
When name your price and make an offer on something, you’ve started a higgle! You can check out the ‘higgles’ going on and ‘join’ a higgle if you want to. For instance, there was a super cute bag that I liked, so I hovered my mouse over the picture and it said ‘Join It’. I clicked on that and it brought me to the description and purchase page of the bag I adored. The bag retails for $169 and it also shows the recent offer price, which is $120. It was a little high for me, but that is okay, I can continue looking! IF I wanted to though, I could have ‘Joined the Higgle’ and I will get that bag for the price of $120. Shipping is always free and there is also a section before you check out, where you can redeem a coupon code too. So that was nice!
When you hit that ‘confirm’ button, you are making a commitment to buy the product at the offer price listed here (which was $120). Your card will be authorized for this amount. If the offer price is accepted by the merchant, your card will be charged this price and your product will ship in 5-7 business days. If you receive a counteroffer, you will be notified via email, and you will have 24 hours to decide if you accept the counteroffer price from the merchant. You can track all activity in the My Notifications and My Orders section of your profile. See, super easy!!!
Tip To Ensure You Get That Offer Price Accepted!
To ensure you get that offer price accepted and get your merchandise for cheaper, you simply share and share away on your social media channels, about the product you are about to buy! After you click confirm, you will be able to share your Higgle through a shortened email link, on Facebook, Twitter, and with anyone on Higgle. The more you share this Higgle, the more likely the merchant is to accept, so share away!
In A Nutshell, How Does Higgle Work?
Higgle allows you to name your price on products and share those offers (these are called higgles). Higgles can be joined by anybody on Higgle, and you can share them on your own network/s. On Higgle, there is a point to being social – to get the most amazing products at prices you decide!
All the prices on the marketplace are set by us, the shoppers and everything on the marketplace you can purchase! It is a two-way negotiation which gives both sides (seller and purchaser) the opportunity to make a deal by bringing what you have to the table. For the sellers, it is their pricing flexibility for nice products and for us buyers, it is our influence and networks!
So, for the first time you can create sharable content that revolves around buying experiences and in return we get better prices for sharing things.
I think that this is kind of fun way to shop. Shopping is never boring for me, but this is a more engaging way to shop and I think I like it!

Higgle features thousands of products from the most amazing merchants across the US and Europe; in 18 categories ranging from Gourmet, Babies & Toddlers, Children, Cooking & Baking, Fashion, Beauty, and Design & decor.
