What is FLIP?

FLIP is everyone’s sneaker connect — the premier specialty destination where people find and sell hard to find, rare, limited edition sneakers. We have created a community where our members can buy and sell with confidence and ease. Never miss out on an opportunity to place your bid on hard to find sneakers in 90 minutes from a curated list of quality sellers who really care. Our mobile only platform is currently available for your iPhone and coming soon to Android. We strive to keep an open and trusted environment for our community.

How can I trust buying on FLIP?

You are protected every time you win an auction on FLIP with FLIP Protect. When you purchase an item on FLIP, we keep your payment safe until you tell us you’ve received your order. If your item does not match the description, please notify us within 24 hours of delivery. After we verify your claim, we’ll refund payment. If we don’t hear from you by 2 days after your order is delivered, we’ll assume everything is OK and release your payment to the seller. Once we release payment, all sales are final and no refunds will be available.

How do I use my FLIP earnings to make purchases?

FLIP makes it very easy to use your earnings or FLIP credits to purchase on FLIP. When you make a purchase, we first apply any credits you have and then your redeemable balance. Any remaining cost will be charged to your credit card. We always require a credit card to make a purchase, but rest assured that if the total cost of the item you’re buying is covered by your credits and/or balance, we will not charge your card.
