This week, we are pleased to announce the launch of a major new feature called ‘Item Hunter,’ which is now available to use and totally unique to BuyCharity! Whether you’re looking for something special as a gift, an unusual collector’s piece, or just something a little bit specific, Item Hunter should be perfect for you! This feature allows our registered users to submit requests for whatever they’re looking for directly to all of the charities selling on BuyCharity.
Many charities only post a selection of their current stock on BuyCharity, and Item Hunter is designed to give you the opportunity to search all of the stock of our participating charities, without needing to take hours visiting every single shop. You don’t need to commit to buying anything, and submitting a request is completely free! To use the feature, all you need to do is register for a free account.
With Item Hunter, there’s no need to bid against other customers, and no pressure to buy if it isn’t quite right! If we can find what you’re looking for, we’ll let you know, and you’ll have three days to buy (if you so choose). After three days, the listing will be made available to the general public.
Item Hunter is designed to save you the time and legwork of trawling around multiple charity shops looking for that one specific item. Just let us know and we’ll do our best to find what you’re looking for!
Launching alongside Item Hunter is another feature for BuyCharity called My Interests. This allows registered users to save certain keywords and product types as ‘Interests’. Then, whenever a charity posts an item that matches one of your keywords, we’ll send you an email to let you know right away!
With these two new features, we hope that BuyCharity will make the process of buying from and supporting charity shops even easier than it already did!
