This Christmas I want to be thoughtful with my gift shopping and support local makers as much as possible, Trouva makes this so easy with it's huge selection of beautiful products.
Great idea and beautiful website. Are sales completed through Trouva or through the independent boutiques you work with? Thanks!
@antonis_tsagari thanks for your question! All sales are completed by our community of independent boutiques, we provide them with the technology & integrations (logistics providers, packaging etc) required to make the process as convenient and streamlined as possible :)

Have ordered shoes from the website. Very happy with the goods and the service. Amazing and friendly people, fast reply and quality items. Keep up your great job! Thank you!

Pros:

Great service, interesting products, fast handling of the order.

Cons:

more delivery options?

I bought a food processor and later, was informed that there's no stock. Trouva refunded me. But, I'm not happy with the fact that I lost USD18 in the transaction because of exchange difference in the charging and refunding, which is totally not my fault but Trouva's. My only mistake was that I trusted the site and believed that it would have the goods I ordered before advertising it! This gives me little faith in ordering from Trouva in the future because any mistake on Trouva's part will incur an exchange rate lost for the customer. If the company is new and still have some kind of teething problems, it shouldn't charge at all but just put the amount on hold instead, like many hotels do, until it has confirmed with the actual merchant about the stock availability or until the merchant is ready to ship. The company is dealing with an international community, using credit card or PayPal as payment modes, which always involves exchange rate lost in each refund.

Pros:

Trouva ships internationally.

Cons:

You get penalised when they refund you because of their own teething problems. They make no attempt to compensate you for this.
