New Website for Sample Box Trades

By Melissa Meisel | January 23, 2014

What's the latest online hub for swapping beauty bits?

The sample box craze is still going strong, and the latest website to cash in on the growing trend is building on the community mentality. For those who are hoarding unusable or duplicate products leftover from their Birchbox, Ipsy or other monthly beauty services, eDivv.com rolled out the first online community providing users of all beauty subscription boxes a free marketplace to negotiate and trade their samples.
 
According to the company, eDivv.com facilitates the swapping of these items through an interactive, negotiating-like platform never before seen on the Internet. Trading, or as eDivv.com likes to call it, “divvying,” is an interactive way to swap products online.  Through the use of “Divvy” Requests, users can accept, decline, or counter their trading partner’s offer through checking or un-checking products listed under their trading partner’s account. 
 
The website allows users to post products to their page, search for products of interest, negotiate potential trades and rate their trading partner’s reliability at the completion of a trade.
