We recently sent out a request for PR agencies to tell us about new sites and this one came through and to be honest it’s quite a nice idea. The process is fairly simple – You go to the site and list on it what you are looking for (e.g. An XBOX) – you then say what you want to pay and how much you will tip the person who gives you the lead. Fairly simple really.
What we like about the site is that you set the price your willing to pay and then wait for the offers to come flooding in. If you go for the deal then you pay the tip – hence www.tipatipa.co.uk.
On the downside we don’t think the home page tells you enough. At first look we thought it was another ebay copy but it is definitely not. I am sure that in the near future more content will be added so this might be something worth considering.
We can just see this site been used by some very competitive ebayers clearing stock – a good way to stop users having to trawl through lists and lists of rubbish and get to the real deals.
All in all a good site – three stars at the moment as it’s only just got going but when more people use it we’re sure it will catch on especially as if you spend time on the internet you know where to find deals and could make quite a profit. Another credit crunch busting idea.
