What's New in Version 3.12.5
Tons of fixes and improvements
Not a Scam
So I ordered like 50 bucks worth of stuff before I read review online about the app. Once I read reviews I was worried it was actually a scam but because I payed with PayPal I wasn't that worried.
So I ordered the fashion personality notebooks with a compass on them. I got them before their delivery date! Let me tell you they are a great bang for your buck if you like writing in cute little journals. Yes they are small, slightly bigger then the palm of my hand. But they are surprisingly good quality. Yes the leather looks slightly fake but the pages can be taken in and out they are on a binder clip type system. I'm going to use these notebooks as a diary when I go on vacation. They are small enough to fit in a purse without taking up to much room, but cute enough that I would want to display it one I get back from my trips.
Now be smart about what you order and realize the stuff of from China. You aren't going to get moleskin quality items. Or Mac quality makeup. Or designer quality clothes(order up a size or two when ordering clothes, also if your plus size they clothes most likely won't fit). So just really keep your expectations in check. I'll updated once the rest of my stuff comes or doesn't come. So far I'm happy with what I have purchased. Now I know the return process is a joke! However if something doesn't arrive I am going to take it up with PayPal and see what they can do! It's worth a try!
I've ordered tons of things from this app. The items are posted by various stores [many from China so keep in mind the clothing sizes are smaller] and everything has unrealistically low prices which are the actual prices yes you can trust them. Some things are cheaply made but it's ok since you're still paying less than its worth, while some things are beautiful and well made which makes the pricing even better. It's very easy to place your order and some things come very quickly, however, there are a few things that have taken months to arrive [we'll forgive the stores I shopped from around the holidays, that was my own fault for procrastination, BUT..] then there's the rare no-show. It is absolutely impossible to get a refund if an item never makes it to you because of the ridiculously extensive return process. If you never received the item, there's no way to return it, so the whole *take a picture of the item before and after packaging it and we'll refund your money when it reaches the return center* thing totally screws you.
BUT!! I can't knock the whole app based on one failed delivery. Many stores on this app are very efficient and determined to please the customer even if the mistake was the customer's fault, they'll gladly accept returns or exchange your purchase for a different size or colour. But if Wish doesn't improve the refund process, there's going to be a chain of lawsuits coming at the creators.
Like Shooting Craps
In a gambling sort of way. The app is either fantastic or awful with no middle ground. Let's start with the good. Some of the items are unbelievably inexpensive and as long as you realize you're buying directly from Chinese merchants and that the quality may or may not be good and the item may or may not work and you may or may not be able to return it, you know that every purchase is taking a chance. Sometimes you get an amazing deal on a great product, sometimes you get a box full of broken pieces that you can't return.
The bad news is that Wish is only an agent for these merchants, so each one has a different shipping and return policy. Overall, shipping is slow and returns are either impossible or very difficult. Just know that going in. Also, the app spams you with notifications once or twice a day guiding you to items you've probably already seen. They are pretty relentless in their in app notifications. One other thing, any clothing you buy is sized in the Chinese sizing structure, so it is much smaller than American sizes. Buy large, really large.
I sort of put this app in a category with my blackjack game. Every time you use it it's a gamble, sometimes you win big, most times you're lucky if you break even. But what do you expect for a 2 TB flash drive for 20 bucks?
