Chika Pow Wow – a genuine, fun, and reliable online auction site

An avid techie, I follow technology developments closely and I buy way too many gadgets for my own good, all when it was newly launched.

The feeling of getting your hands on a mint new gadget, powering it up and exploring its power and capabilities. Awesome! :DD


Yes, that’s tech addiction for you.

But I’ll let you in on a secret; I always buy my gadgets at better rates than retail. One of the ways is via bidding sites.

Knowing my affinity for such buys, a friend told me about this new online auction site.

Chika Pow Wow

It has a really cheeky theme!

From the name of the bidding site to the website design and even the tokens used to place bids is cute and all in the theme of fun.

ChikaPowWow (yes, that’s the name, I kid you NOT!) aims to separate themselves from other bidding sites by providing a platform which is reliable and dependable through strong ethics and integrity.

Well, online auction sites are a dime a dozen, but for any online transaction that I do online, my priority starts with the security features. passed, for now.

Since I haven’t transacted yet, I decided that I’ll just explore its interface for now.

The site is actually offering new products which aren’t available in Malaysia yet, such as the Monster headphones from USA (highlight it’s the Bluetooth version of Solo HD which is currently only available in the USA). So, ChikaPowWow would be an ideal site for tech geeks who are looking for cool, imported gadgets.

The mantra of ChikaPowWow is Fun, Excitement, and Bargain, and they aim to provide an alternative shopping experience to users.

From what I could gather, the steps to participate in the auction is fairly simple. All you have to do is choose a product that you want, purchase tokens which are called Chika tokens, start to Pow (which means bid in their language) and when the auction closes, then you win – Wow! Hence, the name ChikaPowWow!

Hmmm.. all seems well.

Based on the site, the products they offered are mostly tech gadgets. And the price of the final bids are really small, with people winning an iPad 2 with just RM1.00!

Well, I won’t complain getting an iPad for RM1.00. After all, who wouldn’t want to grab great products at great offers?

So yes,  I’ll update you guys once I start bidding! Let’s see what new gadgets can I add to my collection 😛

    What’s the catch for this auction website? I’m sure there is a fee to pay, before you start bidding, which I have noticed on a lot of auction websites, for me Ebay is still the best because they have no registration fee to start bidding and there is buyer protection if payment is made via PayPal.

    1. rebeccasaw

      True that. Can’t beat eBay. Anyhow for this you need to buy chikas (points to bid) so yes you need to pay first. The site gives you 15 chikas free when u sign up.

    ooo. i actually wanna sell some of my cds, dvds and comic books. i wonder which site i should use. 😀

    1. rebeccasaw

      CDs, etc.. try mudah and low yat! They sell everything there!!

  3. Kash

    Some sites charge a monthly membership fee, so please read the T&C before signing up/bidding. Thats the way these sites make money.

    1. rebeccasaw

      None for this. Anyways Im happy with my winning bid yesterday.

      1. Kash

    Like the name. It actually sounds like a classic children’s story – Chika Chika Boom Boom.

    So, this website only charge you for the price you bid (aka Pow Price?)

    1. rebeccasaw

      Yes and No. U have to pay for chikas (the tokens) to bid. And how much u spend depends on the price of the item you’re bidding for and your competiting bidders..
      Then u have to pay a fee for delivery as well.

  6. Martin

    What if I lose the bid, will I get back my chikas? Can I get refund then?

    1. rebeccasaw

      Oh no it doesn’t work that way. That’s how they make money!

      1. Martin

        Ok.Thanks your info

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet
    effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a amazing job
    with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely quick for me on
    Internet explorer. Outstanding Blog!

  8. Thanks for sharing, this can be a fantastic publish.Truly thank you! Awesome.
