Let me just put this out there. The people who bought things from Zulily (and are unhappy with their purchases), probably didn't research the brand before they bought it. Think of Zulily like Marshalls or TJMaxx. That's what Zulily is, in online form. I just bought a hoodie from them, and researched the brand before I bought it. The particular hoodie was being discontinued, so they were selling it very cheaply. I bought it, and it is the real deal, originally $89. So research the brand. And don't expect your purchase quickly. They wait until they have enough orders to bulk purchase (another reason why their prices are low), before they buy. So it'll be a few weeks before you get it. I hope this helps.
It depends - I have bought the same brand of perfume through Zulily 3 times. The first one I bought was definitely the real deal, so I felt safe to buy through them again every time my perfume came up for sale. I just discovered that the next 2 bottles I bought are definitely fakes! I am just starting the process with them to get it taken care of, but it is a real song and dance, and I'm not sure they're actually going to make it right for me.
Incidentally, I once found this perfume cheap on Amazon, and it turned out to be a fake, and Amazon IMMEDIATELY refunded my money with no questions asked!
I agree with Edwin this is a big front for Chinese sales at ridiculously high prices. I would check once you get the item to make sure its authentic I have ordered perfume before and makeup and it ended up being really good fake Chinese versions. Got a refund but it was a hassle to prove it.
The only thing worth buying on here is children clothing that's it
I purchase from this company constantly for a my family's clothing. Every single item that I have purchased has been real.
In fact I received a beautiful Steve Madden coat yesterday and it was so perfect that I went and bought the other collars the next day.
I am very familiar with the Chinese clothes and junk they sell on eBay because over the years I have tested all of it. I think it's pretty easy to identify what is a good deal zulily. When I found the original Steve Madden coat I was ready to purchase it on eBay for 100 and I got it on this site for only 54. Best deal ever and extremely authentic.
I find it easy to shop there because of the high quality items they put out every day and the fact that you can pay it into payments which makes it really a lot easier for me to buy.
I'm a member of Sitejabber snd although I can't answer re: perfumes, after lodging a complaint against the company Annie Cloth, just learned that Zulily is a front for lots of Chinese items. The Radley London wallet they sold me in Sept. This year is a fake. All the metallic gold on the back is so thin, it comes off at the slightest touch and one third of the back of this little wallet came off and is currently residing all over the sticky back of a post-it note. The area on the wallet is cardboard grey now. Another fine quality piece of Chinese junk!
Does no one research anymore? Zulily was started in Seattle by Blue Nile creator and his wife. Purchased by QVC in 2015. Not a Chinese front. Do they sell products from China? Yes. As does EVERY retailer. In fact, Amazon was found to sell up to 48% counterfeit products in an independent study of over 1000 products. I buy consistently from Zulily because they have affordable plus size clothing and adorable kids stuff. Not every item is a winner but it's usually clothing if there's an issue. I have complained on those items and been credited every time. Name brand items have been authentic. Yes, Burberry perfume too. However, anymore I only buy cosmetics from reputable retailers who focus solely on that. Amazon? No way. Sephora? Absolutely. Like others have said, research the brand. Good luck!
I use Zulily nearly every month. Much of the goods I got are made in China with good quality, as those we got from shopping malls. The only difference is the price you paid for them. Always double check the brand before you order online. I only pay for the brands I'm familiar with. By the way, I live in Australia, and the delivery is always from US.
I am puzzled by these comments about Chinese sales. Just about everything in my wardrobe is made in China. Oh, apart from my Zulily tunic which is a USA brand and labelled 'Made in the USA'. You need to toss up price against brand. If the perfumes are cheap and prove to be copies, they will probably be good anyway. Why do people order cheaply from a company that clearly states the shipping times, then complain? I have had great items and service from Zulily. But you have to be a smart shopper.
Not sure about perfume but I can tell you the blouse I ordered looked like it was made by a 10 year old. And it wouldn't even got my 10 yr old granddaughter! I ordered the women's xl purposely just in case the ran small. What a waste of $$!
It was the heather gray long sleeve lace sleeve top. I will NEVER order from them again!
