Flip is the Sneaker Retailing Application for the Snapchat Generation

Flip is the newest sneaker-selling app to infiltrate sneaker culture. While other buy-and-sell sneaker apps have gained their own buzz and success, Flip is the first app that specifically caters to speed when selling.

Founded by Kemar Newell, Flip has been described as the "eBay for the Snapchat generation." Much like other sneaker-selling apps, this application provides a platform where sneaker enthusiasts can buy-and-sell through a curated marketplace. However, what sets Flip apart is the guarantee that every item will sell within 90 minutes. Within the app, buyers can tap auctions that interest them to find all relevant details and be instantly notified when an auction is live so they can place their best offer. For sellers, Flip carefully considers each listing and approves the best ones with a Guaranteed Sale Price (GSP) to start off each auction.

Flip makes buying easy, fast and exciting for dedicated sneaker buffs.
