How do I purchase an offer?
There are 2 ways to purchase on Peddler.com. You can 'Buy It Now' or 'Hold & Wait'.
Buy It Now guarantees the product at its current unlocked price and your order is shipped straight away!
When you Hold & Wait, you only pay and your item is shipped if the lowest tier is unlocked by the time the offer ends. If the lowest price is not unlocked, only the Peddlers that opted for Buy It Now will be charged and receive their desired item.
To see more about how purchasing works, check this out.
When do I pay?
If you click Buy It Now, this will take you to the checkout to complete payment and your item will be shipped to you straight away.
If you Hold & Wait, you will only pay if the lowest price is unlocked, however we need your payment details now to make sure they are valid and have available funds.
For some payment types (such as iDEAL) you might be required to re-input your payment details when the offer ends. If so, we will always inform you by email.
All the payments are processed by Stripe. Their platform handles billions of dollars every year for forward-thinking businesses around the world.
What is the progress bar?

The purple bar shows how many Peddlers have opted to Buy It Now and the yellow bar shows how many have opted to Hold & Wait for the lowest price. To try out a simulation for yourself, you can click the 'What?' button on any product page.
What are the tiers?
Those circles on the progress bar are called the tiers - milestones that are reached as purchases are made. Each tier has a label showing the price and how many more purchases are needed to unlock that price. You’ll notice them changing colour as they’re unlocked.
What does it say underneath the progress bar?
The info below the bar is a summary. It shows the total number of purchases split between Buy It Now and Hold & Wait and how many more Peddlers are needed to unlock the lowest available price.
What does the timer mean?
All offers have a countdown timer. It starts when the first purchase is made. When browsing products from the homepage, you can see the timer in the bottom right hand corner of the product image, in this example there are 3 days left on the offer. You can also see the timer when you click into the main product page in the top right hand corner of the page.
Make sure to snap those great offers before the timer runs out!
What if the reserve price isn’t unlocked?
If the reserved price is not unlocked, only the Peddlers who chose to Buy It Now will be charged and will receive their orders.
