If you are like me the kind of person that loves a good deal then Wish.com is one of the places you need to check out and if you are keen enough you will get some high-quality stuff for almost nothing. For those who don’t know Wish is an online e-commerce company which was founded in 2010. But unlike Amazon or eBay, Wish has more prominence as a mobile phone app predominantly on iOS and Android. Don’t get me wrong it has a dominant website too.
If you’ve ever shopped from Wish then boy Oh! Boy you know things are pretty cheap. Yes! When I first opened the site I was shocked to see items that I see on other high-end e-commerce websites being sold at rock-bottom prices. However, you should note that goods take a while to arrive. Well, this is the downside to buying products dirt cheap. The reason for the long shipping time is because most sellers are actually based in China and if you buy a product it will take about a month or a month and a half to arrive in the US or Europe.
You see what causes these delays is not just the speed at which the ship travels or the time it spends docking to offload and reload cargo in other ports along its shipping route. The real delay is from these sellers. Take for example if you buy a single Shirt or an iPhone case from a seller based in China. You do not expect him/her to ship only that shirt, do you? So the seller waits around gets other stuff to ship and then ship at a lower price. This is one of the main reasons for the low prices listed on items.
One way to speed up your delivery is to buy in bulk from one seller. That is to say, if you need a combination of things like for example, a Shirt, Shoes, Phone, Watch, Skin Lotion etc. and you contact a seller that sells only shoes, ask him/her if he/she is willing to purchase the other things for you and ship all at once.
The next tips are very important when shopping so make sure you use them.
Make sure you use Wish Promo Codes. For my very first order, I got a 50% discount. Sweet! I couldn’t believe it until it arrived. Your next purchase won’t have that much discount it’s usually low. If you are already a customer look around for Wish Promo Codes for existing customers you will at least get a 10% off, you can also use the referral codes of others too.
Lastly always read the reviews. And also if you are buying clothes or foot ware know that the sizes are Asian. That means if your shoe size is 10 (US) or 7.5 (UK) = 42 (China). Little details like these are important if not you will end up with the wrong product, get frustrated and curse the seller for nothing.
