Fix the wish list


The wish list is not functional on the app. Every time I open it, the items appear in a different order. This means that I need to scroll through the entire list every item to find what I want. If I move to cart or remove an item from my wishlist, the list is re-ordered and the items appear in a different order again.

To clarify (because your FB team did not understand this no matter how hard I tried), when I say order or re-order or different order, I mean the sequence in which the items appear.

The wishlist is impossible to work with. No filtering option, no sorting option. It’s the middle button on your app (meaning it’s what you think users use most often or what you want us to use most often) and the user experience is ghastly. I’ve stopped adding things to my wishlist because it’s actually a deep dark hole.

Developer Response

Hi there, we have noted the issue with the re-ordering of the wishlist. Please keep an eye out for an update regarding this in the near future. We appreciate your feedback and in the meantime don't be shy in voicing any other issues you come across. We strive to create the best shopping experience for all our customers 😀

Terrible service


I ordered a package three weeks ago and it has yet to arrive. I have been in contact with numerous consultants, none of which can figure out why my package’s delivery keeps being delayed. Eventually I figured out it was due to a mistake in my delivery address (the address was correct, but the suburb was wrong) , yet they have no section on the app that allows for one to amend such a mistake. This forced me to email their offices and call several consultants over the course of a week. However, none of them have been able to fix my delivery address. What is more frustrating is that the address I have saved in my address book on the app as my delivery address is correct. So I do not know how the address came out faulty in the delivery step of the process.
