About MeanBuy

I have never seen a website like this before, what is MeanBuy?

At MeanBuy, you only Pay What You Wanna Pay on many of our top quality products! Also, MeanBuy doesn't allow Your Price to ever go above the retail price, leaving you with great personal savings guaranteed.

How does MeanBuy work?

At MeanBuy, you can submit Your Price on any of the products you love. Your Price determines the shipping date of your product. The higher the price you submit, the sooner your shipping date will be.

Your shipping date is determined by the following factors:

1) How much of your product there is in stock
2) When you submit Your Price at MeanBuy
3) The amount of interest in Your Product by other people

If your product is still in stock on your shipping date; just sit back and relax, your product is on the way! If it's not, no worries, try again on many of our other products. Submitting prices is ALWAYS FREE.

Am I guaranteed to get my product at My Price?

Well, it depends... There are other people who also submit their price on your product. So as long as your product is still in stock by your shipping date, you are guaranteed to get your product at Your Price. So, are you up for the challenge to get yourself a Mean Buy?

For how long are the products typically listed on MeanBuy?

This varies greatly depending on the amount of people who submit prices. A product could be listed anywhere from a couple of hours to a few weeks.
