Bonanza has quickly risen to the top of our "go-to" list for a fun and easy online shopping experience. It's hard to beat the variety of products and reasonable prices offered by sellers at Bonanza. If you haven't heard of this gem yet, it's similar to eBay or Etsy in that it allows a wide variety of sellers to pedal their goods in a sort of giant, virtual, online mall. However, unlike the mall, you don't have to worry about finding parking or deal with unruly holiday crowds. It was also recently selected as “Best Overall Marketplace” by more than 50,000 sellers over similar marketplaces including eBay, Amazon, and Etsy.
They make shopping a breeze because everything is categorized under a few easy-to-use navigation tabs. Looking for women's fashion? Just click the link and you're instantly browsing over 1 million clothing items. You can sort by brand, price, type of clothing or even what country it's made in. They have everything from modern fashion to vintage apparel and even wedding dresses!
Not sure what you're looking for? Check out a few of the Bonanza "hand-picked lists." These give you ideas for all types of fun categories like "Office Supplies" for cute, cat-shaped tape dispensers or "Cold Shoulder" for a collection of off-the-shoulder blouses and dresses. Our current favorite to browse is the "Breakfast Gadgets" list because where else can you find both Stormtrooper and Darth Vader toasters? Sorry Luke, looks like we're going to the dark side.
Bonanza is a seller-friendly site because it doesn't have listing fees, and selling fees are only a fraction of what other online marketplaces charge. They also share buyer information with the sellers so that sellers can actually create a customer base of loyal buyers who come back to the same seller's shop again and again. This means that buyers can get access to exclusive coupons and other discounts offered by sellers that they love.
Buyers also can shop with confidence because Bonanza offers buyer protection through it's two payment portals. That means if something that you paid for never arrives, or doesn't arrive in the condition it was advertised as, your purchase is protected through either PayPal or Amazon Payments. Checkout is also fast and secure. Buyers don't have to have accounts or memberships with Bonanza in order to make a purchase, and every transaction is encrypted through their SSL security. Plus, Bonanza has a ton of products with free shipping, and they make it very easy to see which products ship free on every page. Seriously, it's that easy!
