The shirt you ordered isn’t the same color it was in the picture. The backpack you bought is already ripping at the seams.

If you’re anything like me, you spend way too much time researching purchases online. You want to make sure the products you buy are high-quality. You need to know they fit your needs. And you want to be positive they’ll last.

We all know the feeling. You’ve waited all week. You rush home and tear open the package, only to discover some cheap, chintzy junk inside. What a disappointment.

Today, my team and I launched Hipmatic, a website that makes researching purchases easier by crowdsourcing recommendations from people who’ve bought the same types of products you’re looking for.

We’ve already seen some really good questions and product recommendations from our little community, and it’s nice to see such a positive reaction from our friends in the startup community. So check out Hipmatic, and let me know if you have any feedback!
