WeFlip was launched in October 2018 by the GoCompare Group. In true GoCompare fashion, they’ve opted for a cheeky (if annoying) mascot in the form of an Australian chameleon. Like Switchd, they are an automated energy switching service, although there are a few very important differences between us and them.
As an automated energy switcher, WeFlip search for better energy deals for you and automatically switch you to that deal. However, WeFlip make money by taking commission from the energy companies that they switch you to. This means that, whilst they might be checking every tariff in the UK, they will in reality only switch you to a tariff that pays them money. On average, just one third of tariffs pay a commission, meaning that you’re missing out on the majority of available deals.
WeFlip is free, but there is a hidden cost to signing up with them. The money you save by going with a free switcher is almost always less than the money you would be saving by getting the best deal with a fee-charging service.
From just £1.99 per month, we can get you the best energy deals out there, as we search the whole market for you (not just the ones that pay commission), switching to the very best deal available. For a small fee, our service saves you over £100/yr more than free automated switching services and comparison sites. We’re so sure that we’ll get you a better deal, we don’t even start charging you until we’ve saved you at least £50 on your energy bills.
80% of the time, the cheapest deal was not shown. Hidden within the website the best deal was available, but as shown through Flipper's research, 97% of people can't find it.
45% of the time, the cheapest deal was not shown. Since free auto-switchers make money through commissions from suppliers they do not offer the best deal to their customers.
