About Shopiginie

Shopiginie is striving to become the most trusted product recommendation service on the internet today. We rigorously test, recommend and report on thousands of items each year to recommend the best of everything. Our goal is to save you time and eliminate the stress of shopping, whether you’re looking for everyday gear or gifts for loved ones. We work with total editorial independence. That means nothing appears on the site as a recommendation unless our writers and editors have deemed it the best through our rigorous reporting and testing.

In addition to relying on our own expertise, we at Shopiginie gather interviews and data from the best sources around, including engineers, scientists, designers, and innumerable subject-matter experts, ranging from fitness experts, barbers, skincare experts, home décor experts, barbers to residents and sporting champions. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the things we’re assessing. In a world where overpriced, top-of-the-line models loaded with junk features are often seen as the gold standard, we aim to recommend high-quality things that warrant their price and don’t push extra features you’ll rarely use.

If a reader chooses to buy a product we recommend as a result of our research, analysis, interviews, and testing, our work is often (but not always) supported through an affiliate commission from the retailer when the reader makes the purchase. There’s no incentive for us to pick inferior products or to respond to pressure from manufacturers—in fact, it’s quite the opposite. If a reader returns their purchase because they’re dissatisfied or the recommendation is bad, Shopiginie makes no affiliate commission. We think that’s a pretty fair system that keeps us committed to serving our readers first. And of course, our writers and editors are never made aware of or influenced by which companies have affiliate relationships with our business team.

The most important thing to us is reader trust. If we were to recommend something due to bias or laziness, readers wouldn’t support our work. At Shopiginie, we put our readers first.
