What is Thingtesting?

We’re on a mission to build the corner of the internet where people can come together to talk honestly about new things. At Thingtesting, we believe that with the ever increasing number of brands launching online, coupled with the rise of fake reviews, paid influencers, and cherry-picked endorsements, it’s becoming outright impossible to know who and what to trust.

As a place to discover and authenticate new brands, Thingtesting is not sponsored or paid by the brands on our site. Our only incentive is to help you make more informed purchase decisions. Our success is based on participation from people like you, and we’re excited you’re here to test things with us!

Frequently asked questions
How does it work?

Thingtesting is a database of internet-born brands. Collectively we’re building a trustworthy go-to resource for making purchases online. Discover new brands. Vet a brand you saw on Instagram. Dive into our editorial lists of round-ups, or create your own lists, whether that’s because you love them or because you want to try them or you want to get them for someone else. The first step is creating a profile.

Are brands paying you to be featured on Thingtesting?

No.

How do you make money?

The Friends of Thingtesting Membership enables us to produce unbiased content. Brands do not pay us to be featured or reviewed. Become a friend for exclusive discount codes and unique opportunities to test new things!

Are you planning to turn Thingtesting into a marketplace?

No.

How did Thingtesting begin?

Thingtesting founder, Jenny Gyllander, was working at a London-based venture capital firm when she started to see tons of new brands popping-up in her social feeds. She wondered if the things these brands were selling were any good. With a strong conviction that consumers have the right to trustworthy information, Jenny started @Thingtesting.
