It must be hard to be a billionaire. Apparently there's no easy way to impulse buy things such as yachts, jets and real estate.
The good news, however, is there's a new website called The Billionaires Shop, which allows you to throw millions of dollars away in a matter of seconds. Want an $8 million penthouse in Miami? Add it to your shopping cart and checkout. How about a new Ferrari 458 sports car? That will be $230,000.
"Luxury items and products are often hard to find and buy," a spokesperson for the company told Mashable. "At TheBillionairesShop.com, it's the opposite: easy, available and curated. It serves as an inspiration to all people -- not just billionaires -- who love to dream big."
The concept came after the Swedish-based team, which also runs an international gambling company called Multilotto.com, realized that -- like the classic comedy film Brewster's Millions -- big winners didn't always know what to do with their cash.
"Gambling companies don't always take care of the winners by offering advice on how to spend money," the spokesperson said. "We wanted to change that."
The most popular category on the site so far is its luxury yacht collection, with private jets not far behind.
