People keep telling us that we're crazy. That it simply can't be done. That this is just how ecommerce works. But we don't want to live in a world where we're not in control of what we spend our money on, and that's why we had to build Try.com. We're tired of finding out that it doesn't quite fit right. That the fabric is itchy. That we have to wait 14-days for a refund. We built Try.com for the rulebreakers. The girls and guys who take risks. They embrace life. They say 'yes'. They say 'why not'. They say 'I'll Try it'. Try.com is invite-only, and we're excited to open our first ever batch of invites to Product Hunters today! We hope there's more of you who share our vision to fix online shopping, and we want to hear your thoughts here in the comments.

@4nkush wish you guys were in UK! And would work with shoes as well. I'd definitely give it a try if you do.

@matgosselin @4nkush Thanks Mathieu -- not in the UK yet, but Try.com does work with shoes and accessories as well as clothing! Basically anything that is sold on the supported sites that can be returned.

My goodness this is going to be dangerous. Just tried my first item. ๐Ÿ˜ A lot of these retailers already make returns p easy, but psychologically it feels like much less of a commitment when I'm just 'trying' something. Nice work!

@kelseymwhelan You nailed it, Kelsey! The psychology of being able to Try for Free without any risk or commitment is something that's intangible and hard to explain, but once you use it you get it. Thanks for the feedback!

@kelseymwhelan Kelsey - great to hear. Retailers are getting more savvy about returns, so are companies like Shyp and Uber. We're betting big that annoying returns are going to be solved soon, making the market to Try even more appealing for the general public

@ldesserrey Thanks Laurent! It took us a long time and a lot of hustle to get Try.com. It helps that our team doesn't take 'No' for an answer ๐Ÿ˜‰

@4nkush What a great get! Domain name sales can be a real pain so I'm sure it wasn't easy.

Love the product, used it a while ago and got the most awesome shirts I have. The guys are quite knowledgeable and love what are they doing, which makes this service the go-to spot if you are too lazy/busy to do shopping. Easy and super convenient.

Looks great guys! Excited to give it a whirl. Tried a similar service when Shop It To Me was doing this. UX comment: I would guess some users would get discouraged from entering their address as the first interaction with the site. It feels like this step should happen once more value is conveyed and it is a bit more clear how the whole process works.

@dpolaske Cheers Dan - look forward to more feedback when you get your first batch of Tries. Re: onboarding flow - you're absolutely right, next update does exactly what you mention ๐Ÿ‘

@dpolaske Absolutely. I'm signing up now and definitely discouraged by you asking for my address - I've barely even seen a value prop yet!
