Users of Sampler have had a great experience getting free or discounted items from the company. While the process of obtaining samples can take some time, the rewards are worth the wait. With Sampler, users have the opportunity to test various products before committing to ordering or purchasing them in bulk. This is especially useful for trying out different samples of foods, skincare products, and other useful items. By providing samples for testing and comparing quality, price, and personal preferences, Sampler helps users make informed purchasing decisions.

Not only does Sampler benefit users, but it also offers advantages to companies. Businesses can utilize Sampler to gather valuable feedback and improve the user experience of their products through real tests. The platform allows companies to offer opportunities for users to test a wide range of products, including kitchen food, snacks, personal hygiene products, and baby products. Applying to try a product through Sampler is easy, although it's worth noting that popular products tend to fill up quickly.

Once selected as testers, users may receive actual items or coupons/vouchers to purchase items for review. In many cases, users are provided with multiple coupons, including a 'free item' and a buy-one-get-one coupon, which encourages further purchases if they like the product. Overall, Sampler provides an excellent opportunity for users to discover new products and for companies to gain valuable insights to enhance their offerings based on real-world experiences.

Effective Testing Affiliate: Many users have found the product testing affiliate to be highly effective for both consumers and retailers, with several reviewers stating that it is the best in its category. This indicates that the product fulfills its purpose exceptionally well.

Simplicity and Accessibility: The simplicity of the product has been appreciated by users, who highlight its ease of use and accessibility. This makes it convenient for a wide range of users to navigate and utilize effectively.

Fast Delivery of Sample Products: Users praise the fast delivery of sample products, as it allows them to try various items whenever they want. This feature provides convenience and flexibility in exploring new products without any delay.

Limited Membership Tiers: Some users have expressed a desire for an increased number of membership tiers to offer a wider variety of monthly samples. They feel that having more options would enhance their experience and cater to different preferences.

Item Tracking and Inventory Management: There are reports from multiple reviewers about popular items quickly disappearing, indicating a need for improvements in item tracking and inventory management. Users suggest implementing better systems to ensure that popular items are consistently available for a reasonable duration.

Misleading Sample Availability Notifications: Several users have mentioned that the sample availability notifications can be misleading as the items go away almost immediately after receiving the notification. This has caused frustration among customers who expect to have enough time to select their desired samples before they run out. The company should address this issue by refining their notification system or providing clearer information about sample availability.

When we launched our health and wellness brand Frusirnag amid a pandemic - a time where in-store product sampling was not an option, we had to get creative and find new ways to reach our ideal consumer. We partnered with Sampler and built an engaging digital sampling program to distribute thousands of samples and drive trial and awareness of their Amino Complex & Immunity Blend supplement. Through the program, Sampler users were invited to complete a diagnostic questionnaire that matched them with products best suitable for their needs and lifestyle - ensuring that every sample was delivered to Frusirnag’s ideal shopper. Samples were delivered directly to their doorstep where they’d have an opportunity to experience the product at home and put it to the test.
  • Email opt-ins for consumer education.
  • Ensuring that every sample was delivered to Frusirnag’s ideal shopper based on the pre-sampling questionnaires.
  • Early product feedback from the subscribers.
  • I saw some Sampler parcel boxes distorted when they were delivered to the subscribers.
  • Varieties of product samples that available for subscribers.
  • The questionnaire can be further flexible to accommodate the brand's needs.
I have a skincare mini set and would like to partner with Sampler. However, they cannot come up with an immediate solution to suit my sampling needs. This means that their operations are sometimes limited by their current capacity. If the product is of small size, it seems that they are always ready for service.

I would like to suggest that you consider using this company. It has been a great experience getting free or discounted items from them. Though I'm still hopeful, I would like more samples to be matched to me. The process of getting samples takes some time at times, but the rewards are worth the wait. Except for shipping and handling, there is no charge for this service. Thank you so much, Sampler!
  • Best Product Testing Affiliate for Consumers and Retailers.
  • Simplicity
  • Perfect for growing the sales of your products
  • The number of membership tiers should be increased so that users can select from a wider variety of monthly samples.
  • Items that are popular quickly disappear.
  • Item tracking could be improved. Emails are sometimes delayed/slow.
The product can be returned if I don't like it without wasting the entire product. Business administrators can use it to make a perfect and appropriate purchase without missing a thing. A lot of the products sell out in seconds and the next batch comes a week later.

I use Sampler to learn about new products in the market or in general, to test products of companies that want to know the opinion of their users, besides helping companies to improve the user experience of their products through the critique of real tests of the products they offer.
  • Good amount of test articles
  • Availability
  • Ease of use and access
  • Improve the number of options in the user interface
  • Improve the appearance of the site
  • Facilitating access to more programmes
I think Sampler is a very good tool or platform for companies to make their products known, whether new or known in exchange for criticism and comments that help to improve their products, both in appearance and in the experience they offer.

On the other hand and as a user, I think it becomes somewhat complicated to access certain programs offered on the platform, perhaps making it easier to access the programs would allow companies to receive a greater number of reviews from users.

Sampler has lots of opportunities to test products. Products range from kitchen food and snacks, personal hygiene products, baby products, and so on. It's easy to apply to try a product, but more popular products tend to fill quickly. Before receiving a product, you'll usually take a survey. Most surveys are pretty quick and easy. After the item is sent, you're asked to write reviews, but you don't have to if you do not want to. Sometimes the actual item is shipped, but other times, you're mailed a coupon or voucher to allow you to buy the item to review. In my experience, for a single thing, I'll get two coupons. The first will be a simple "free item," and the second will be a buy-one-get-one coupon. The idea is that you use the free coupon to obtain the item for review. If you like the item, you can go back and get more or even buy them for a friend to try.
  • Encouraged reviews.
  • Easy to use and understand platform.
  • Email reminders.
  • Lots of offers.
  • Emails can quickly add up.
  • Popular items disappear quickly.
  • Emails are sometimes delayed/slow.
  • Item tracking could be better.
If you're looking for new snack foods or personal hygiene items, Sampler is excellent. You're given the opportunity to try products you've seen but questioned and thus did not spend money on, or you're exposed to products that you simply didn't know about or have frequently overlooked. It's worth a quick look just to see what they have in the least.

Sampler allows me to try out different samples of foods, skincare products, and other useful items. This helps us in a way as I provide meals for my employees and having samples of foods help me determine what foods are good to purchase for them to eat during lunch and sometimes dinner if they stay late.
  • Provides samples of different types of items ranging from food to beauty product.
  • Site GUI was straightforward and sign up was easy.
  • Getting samples of products help me determine if they are a right fit for my team.
  • I rarely get samples.
  • Emails of sample available to try seem misleading as they go away almost immediately.
  • I get the wrong items sometimes.
The one great thing about Sampler is that it's free to use and sign up for. Getting samples to determine what to buy for my team is great. However, the bad thing about this is that the samples came very infrequence to the point that it's not that worth it to use sometimes. But when we do get the samples, it's all good.

The sampler is a great product when you want to test some products before ordering them or purchasing them in bulk. So in our day-to-day operations, there are stationery items which we need to order in bulk quantity for the office, so getting a sample of those before actually getting to make the purchase makes the experience really good. As there's less chance of quality issues or expectation mismatch, also we try the same product from different brands, ultimately comparing the quality, price, quantity and various personal preferences check and then can get the finalised items. This is how Sampler has helped me in both professional and personal life to make product purchasing decisions.
  • The sampler provides great quality sample products with blazingly fast delivery, ensuring we can try various products whenever we want.
  • I get to try new brands without wasting the whole product if I don't like using the product. So it is eco-friendly in that way by reducing chemical waste.
  • It helps the professionals who are in business administration responsibility, to make a perfect and apt purchase, without any miss.
  • One get to learn about a lot of new products, trying them and end up being loyal to the brand/product. So Sampler helps in establishing the necessary customer acquisition part for a new brand.
  • They needs to handle their inventory more efficiently as some of the products gets sold out in seconds and the next batch comes after a week or so.
  • Their notification system can also be optimised by adding more channels like through whatsapp, telegram or facebook.
  • They should be more in social media campaigns so that many people gets to know about the beautiful product.
  • This is not an area of improvement rather a suggestion, if they can build some kind of recommendation engine and recommends group of items to users, it can be very interesting.
Scenarios where Sampler works like a charm,
  1. When you have some confusion about multiple products and need to make a purchase and use and take the decision, but don't want to really purchase a retail unit or waste if it doesn't turn up to be good.
  2. When you want to just try some products ( window shopping with a taste of the product )
  3. When you want to both learn and try new products in some particular domains that you are interested in
Scenarios where it is less appropriate,
  1. it doesn't help you in your regular purchase flow
  2. you can't purchase in a discount from there
  3. you can't certainly order samples in bulk to resell them
