Tophatter is an e-commerce and auction marketplace founded in 2012 by Ashvin Kumar ( current CEO) and Chris Estreich.
Tophatter is an online marketplace like Amazon, eBay, and Wish; however, the CEO Ashvin Kumar states that it’s more of a next-generation QVC or Home Shopping Network due to its auctions discovery shopping format.
Tophatter is currently live in the US, Austria, Australia, Canada, Germany, France, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United Kingdom.
The company is known to use games to help enhance not only the customer experience but to increase sales.
Unlike Amazon, which looks for similar items consumers have searched for, Tophatter prides itself on helping consumers find things they didn’t know they needed, wanted, or that even existed.
Tophatter maintains a corporate office in San Francisco, California.
