About Me

Natural purchaser with no tolerance to vendors bad behavior. If it's bad, I'll return it, if it's wrong, I'll return it; if service was bad, I'll let them know... but, if everything was great, you'll have my compliments and my loyalty

How I Can Help

I'm sourcing specialist and I know all the tricks to buy best things at an affordable price. I've returned more things that I've wanted just because of bad quality or things that didn't meet vendors promises. I know how to deal with scammers because they're like fleas on a cake and I know when to celebrate a brand.

Interests

Book writer, in love with my baby boy Noah and I love buying

Florsheim is a well recognized brand and it's not a cheap one so been able to buy to my husband 2 pairs of shoes at a very affordable price was a great deal.
Shoes were a bit on the narrow size but after the feet gets used to it they look and feel amazing. Their clearance and sales shoes are of great quality. Recommended

Tip for consumers:
Beware of sizes. They might run narrow

Products used:
Shoes and sandals

Poor customer service. They sent an email saying that if I don't want a service that I didn't requested I should respond to this email saying I don't want it. Then they contacted him saying a payment has to be done because he didn't rejected the service. My husband pays the link they put on the email but for their convinience this wasn't the payment they were requesting but a renewal of the membership. Now they are claiming that the payment hasn't been done and they can't return the money paid. Seems like a very poor level of service

My experience with my 1st Huawei Y9 was extremely good. I have a 2 year old boy and he throw it on a pool 3 times and the cell didn't shut. It definitely has some marks of water but I find it a very reliable cell phone been it's not water proof. Now I changed it to Huawei Y9 prime and hope it lasts as much as his little brother.

It has a lot of space. Moves very good. Does not freezes. I'm very happy with my buy.

I was still a Samsung fan until today. I don't like Apple products mainly because it is overpriced and I don't like their system. But Samsung, in my hands, has been a total mess.

Bought a tablet on a Cruise at St Marteen and making an update the tablet shutdown, was still under warranty but they sent it back to me worst and went to garbage.

Bought an s4 mini brand new and the screen cracked and it was cheaper to buy a new one than replacing the screen. Bought another Samsung to replace this one s4 with a couple of months of use it went off and when sent it to repair they damaged the wifi antenna, useless!

My more recent and hopefully last dissapointment was a 55" tv, after 6 months of use there was something on the screen and my husband called the company, they said nothing to worry about but he kept insisting and they took the tv. Whole screen needed to be replaced so they decided giving us another tv. As you should guess will not pick another Samsung even if that means paying more... still í have a j7 cell, once it goes off, no more Samsung for me

Update
After reviewing Shein, the Store contacted me and refunded me the items with quality issues, so, they do stand on their customers when we complain. THANKS Shein!

The ordering process was kind of confused since they has bogo 99% off. But when you put items on the cart they were applying discounts to the last items until they were almost in $0

Items seem to have good reviews but for what I received, I asume they do what other online stores do: they do not allow buyers to publish bad reviews so don't trust the reviews you see there.

There were some regular and some pretty bad quality items. Nothing of good quality and they do not return money and you have to pay like 8 dollars to return something, so be prepared to lose big money.

I'm very dissapointed with this buy and would not recommend it. Besides and this was my fault and my country's fault because I ordered many pieces even the amount was below $150 USA dollars I had to pay almost $100 dollars on duties even when we have a law that says that below 200 dollars you don't need to pay taxes but this is another way to steal from customs department and another $100 dollars for shipping, so what I thought would be a bargain became into a very bad decision. I'd spend same amount for branded clothes in USA.
There was a dress I will use as a mop. It is the most ugly thing in the World and fabric is something I could not explain with my little english knowledge. If you see pictures and reviews is not even close to reality.

Sizes are very random but not as bad as other stores.

In my country a pair of naturalizer shoes cost a mini fortune. I spent near 70 dollars in their webpage and bought 4 pair of shoes with free shipping in the USA. Bringing them to the Dominican Republic is a bit expensive but even with this international freight I paid much more less than what it would have cost here.

Quality is good, fitting is true to size. I'm W but has to order M and it's a bit narrow for me but they fit me ok. Only issue was one of the shoes had some glue visible but OK. I recommend this site and the shoes

I ordered some items on may 25th and I knew they would take time to get to me but I decided to make the purchase anyways. The 1st batch arrived at the beginning of july and quality wasn't good at all but for 1 dollar plus another one on shipping you can't expect a diamond jewel. They ship it thru our regular mail and for the 1st batch I didn't have to pay anything.
Now somebody calls me from mail and says I have 11 packages which i have to retire but it would cost me 2 more dollars because it was sent certified ir something like that. I requested them to return all packages to its origin and requested a refund to wish for the items that I was allowed to. But wish only refunded 1.70 when I paid 2 dollars each so refund is not complete.

I don't recommend buying at Wish unless you want to get a headache

• Updated review

I was going to delete my review but I rather to update it. Once they saw the review they contacted me and offered a solution. They refunded 50 dollars to my CC and 10 dollars to the zaful store and they did it in a couple of days.

So I might not be delighted with all the products but at least in my case they gave me a satisfactory response

Good shipping time, not so good quality

I made an order for more than 100 dollars and got free express shipping. Products came in yo the Dominican Repúblic in 5 days which is amazing. But most of the products are very bad quality and I'm trying to review them and just can't. It says I'm disconnected from the Internet más it's false. Tried on the app and on the website. There's a bathing suite which says is one size and fits from xs to m but it fits my 6 years old nephew. Some clothes are worth the money and are inexpensive but most of them are not even sellable
