What is Basket?

Basket is a mobile app and browser extension that lets you save products from any online retailer. We'll keep checking prices and let you know when there's a price drop on the things you've got your eye on.

What can I save to Basket?

You can save items from over 100,000 online retailers! And if you find there's a store that you are struggling to save from - simply get in touch by heading back to the app 'Settings' and selecting 'Submit Feedback'.

The price or item isn't showing correctly

Sometimes this happens - the product info hasn't quite landed right in the Basket, if you 'slide' the 'item card' to the left you'll see a 'bin' and a yellow 'warning symbol'. Tap the 'warning symbol' and report the problem, we'll fix it for you as soon as we can!

How to add a cover photo to a Basket?

Make your Baskets shine by adding a cover photo and create a gallery by adding more photos that are relevant to your Basket, or just photos you love! When you open a Basket tap the 'three dots' in the top right hand corner and choose 'Update Cover' - this will bring up your camera roll, and make your selection.

Can I buy through Basket?

Basket is a safe storage place for all of your future or desired purchases and ideas, you cannot spend money on Basket - only create, grow and organise your items until you are ready to buy. When you are ready to buy, just hit the 'Shop' button and you'll be taken through to that retailer to purchase as usual.

Price Drop alerts

Never miss a deal again. Basket tracks the prices of all the items saved in your Baskets - multiple times a day! When we find a price drop, we'll let you know about it. To ensure you get the most out of this smokin' feature, make sure you head to your phone 'Settings' and toggle 'ON' for notifications from Basket.


How to delete an item, or a Basket?

All in a swipe to the left. Simply hold the item or the Basket that you wish to delete and swipe left. This will give you the 'delete' or 'cancel' option - just in case it was a mistake.

How to organise and re-organise items?

You may have items that are sitting in your 'Quick Saves' from times that you were in a rush or wanted to organise later - simply swipe right on these items. You'll see this purple tile with a Basket, tap that and choose the desired Basket from the pull up sheet. You can also use this same action on items in your created Baskets, if you want to move things around a bit.


How to report or share an item?

Tap any item which hasn't quite landed in your Basket correctly or an item you wish to share - FYI, reporting an item will make our team aware of the problem faster!

What are 'Quick Saves'?

'Quick Saves' is the safe place where your items go when you're not quite ready to organise them into a particular Basket yet - but you don't want to loose them. When you open the Basket app you have two areas to choose from. Area one with the 'lightening bolt' at the bottom is the 'Quick Saves' area and the next area with the 'Basket' symbol at the bottom is where your 'Baskets' are.

How to submit feedback?

Feedback is our greatest way to connect with our users, fix bugs and hear what other features you'd love to see on Basket (we can probably do it!). Simply head to 'Settings' in the Basket app and choose 'Submit Feedback'. We'll be right on it, and glad to hear from you!

Back In Stock Notifications

How does Basket make money?

You might be thinking... how can Basket be a free app? Well - with every item your 'Basket' a link is created between that retailer and Basket. So when you hit 'Shop' on an item from one of your baskets and then purchase that item from that retailer, we get a small commission.
