I am very satisfied with my purchase of thick curtains from Bellacor. Before ordering, I checked the reviews online and they were mixed. But the Amazon reviews for Bellacor curtains were terrific. I decided to take the chance as the curtains looked beautiful and thick--I sometimes work night shifts and sleep very late, and it's hard to sleep in the morning without thick curtains.

I stay in Asia and international shipping for the curtains was pricey, understandable because it's a bulky heavy item.

I placed my order, but a week later, I still had not received tracking information. I was worried since they state items are usually shipped in 2 business days. I called Bellacor, intending to cancel my order.

The customer service rep I spoke to was a polite friendly guy called Joel. He told me I could cancel my order, unless it had already been processed. He checked and found that my order had already been shipped by the manufacturer to Bellacor, but I would only receive my tracking information when Bellacor shipped the item to me. That was why I hadn't received a tracking number yet. He said the item would ship from Bellacor the next day, to Asia. I was relieved and happy!

The item was shipped and I received a tracking number. A week later my curtains arrived at my home in Asia, from the US! That's pretty fast! Altogether, I received my curtains 2.5 weeks after ordering them, which is a reasonable time for an international order.

The curtains are thick and BEAUTIFUL, and great value for money! I'm happy and may order more thick curtains from them in future. Thank you Bellacor, and to Joel!

Tip for consumers: For international shipping, be patient. The product must be shipped from the manufacturer to Bellacor, which could take more than a week. Then Bellacor ships the item overseas--only then will you receive a tracking number. After that, the item should arrive pretty fast, in about a week.

I love this website. It has free next-day local shipping if u spend at least S$10. I can usually get at least 20% off if I use certain cards to pay, and sometimes there's 30% off too. The products are fresh, authentic and received in good condition. Great website!

I first bought from this store about 2 months ago--got a 3 piece outfit (long sleeved top, capri leggings and sports bra) for about $30. I love the outfit, it's cute and comfy and I get loads of attention in it--frankly a bit too much! Lol. The capri pants in particular were really flattering. ;) The sports bra was a bit too tight so I didn't use it, but even then I feel the price was a bargain for the great clothes I got!

I've never bought from stores like Juicy Couture or Lululemon as I think it's overpriced. But I love my Fabletics outfit.

I've skipped the next 2 months so far, as I haven't been working out much recently. :( But once I start working out regularly again, I'll definitely order more outfits as I saw lots on the website that are cute, comfortable and reasonably-priced! I'm a happy customer :)

I had a good experience with this website.

I ordered a skincare product not found on many other websites. I got a 20% discount, whereas i only get 10% off at dermstore.com.

I asked customer service a question, and someone got back to me within a day. I think that's great.

I ordered it on saturday, and i received it on friday (4-5 business days). Shipping was free. This is about 2 days slower than dermstore's shipping which would reach me on tues or wed (2 business days).

However i still gave 5 stars because the money i saved makes up for the slightly longer shipping time. Customers shouldn't be unreasonable :) I think I would pick drskinspa over dermstore, although they're both fantastic.

I've had really good experiences with Dermstore. I've ordered roughly 10 times from them, over the past 1 and a half years. Every purchase went smoothly. There were sometimes minor delays because the system sensed an "Address Problem", because I address my package to a shiping forwarding company, as I'm not a US resident. But those delays were quickly sorted out by the customer service.

The products are genuine and high-quality. U can get at least 10% off each product, by saving that item into your "Favorites" list. There's free 2-day shipping, which is really fantastic. And the customer service is SO AMAZING. When I email them, they quickly solve any problem. Twice I had to call them, and the customer service representatives were polite, cheerful and helpful.

Dermstore has truly great service. I have a hard time believing a few of these negative reviews. Someone said she left items in her cart but didn't checkout, and got sent the items and charged for those items. REALLY? I'd bet a significant amount of money that that's a lie, because I've left items in my cart many times after deciding not to order at that time, and I've NEVER been sent those items or been charged for those items.

I recommend dermstore. :)

I love drugstore.com.

When they use OnTrac shipping, your package will arrive in 2 days, very fast! But they sometimes use UPS Ground shipping, which is SLOW and takes like a week. So I try not to order pricy skincare items from them, as if it takes a week to ship and is subject to lots of heat and adverse weather conditions, it can reduce the effectiveness of the skincare product.

However for my sunscreen, vitamins, shampoo/conditioner and other such basic items, drugstore.com is my choice. Cheap and reliable :) Oh by the way, their customer service is excellent.

I had a great 1st-time experience with Escentual.com.

I was ordering some perfumes to send to my sister in London for a present. I was originally gonna order from House of Fraser. For House of Fraser, the prices are no cheaper than a department store if there's no sale. I was okay with that, but on top of that if u want fast shipping, you have to pay between 6 to 10 pounds. On top of the 140 pounds i was already spending on perfumes for her, I was reluctant to spend another 10 pounds for shipping.

Then I happened to find Escentual. Not only was there a good discount on each perfume bottle, they also provided FREE 2-day shipping! And free gift wrap! I was really happy. Instead of spending 150pounds at HoF, my Escentual bill was about 100pounds!

I will definitely re-order again when I want to send cosmetics/perfumes to my sister. And maybe for myself too, because I see they have very cheap international delivery!

I do like this website.
I recently ordered a Paperdolls floral dress from their website and had it delivered here. The shipping fee of 10 pounds (for delivery from UK to Singapore) was a little expensive considering that many international clothing sites (e.g. ShopBop) that I've ordered from will provide free international shipping with a minimum purchase. ShopBop's intl shipping was free and faster and also had tracking information, unlike House of Fraser.

Nonetheless, my clothing arrived within 10 days as promised. I'm happy with that. :) The dress is lovely, and at 60 pounds it's a bargain.

What annoyed me was that I wrote a great review for the dress, and the website told me it was rejected as it 'didn't meet their review guidelines'. I said really good things about the dress! So I know that the reason it was rejected was I said the dress was very similar to a dress from the Dolce and Gabbana 2013 collection. That's the whole reason I bought it, as that D&G dress was sold out. House of Fraser must be scared that people will think the dress is basically a designer knock-off, which it WAS. U can even email me and i'll show u pics of the 2 dresses, lol.

I'm a new, very happy customer of Shipito.

I used comgateway for more than 1 year, shipped numerous packages thru them. But I find their charges a bit high, and they scrapped their rewards program (used to give a small rebate to reward CGW prime members and they took that away suddenly). I still use them (they're fine overall) but decided to try another shipping company. So I decided to try Shipito.

I chose FedEx Economy, tracking number *******02958. It says signed for by "Jusnia Maid" because my domestic helper answered the door and collected the package, I was out. Btw my suite number is J3098.

My shipment took 1 week to arrive ( from Nevada to Singapore), in perfect condition. It's slower than Comgateway, but that's cos I chose Economy delivery. Thanks to some bad reviews i saw, i only dared to ship 1 package first, so I didn't consolidate packages. As a result, it was too costly (per package) to choose any option other than Economy delivery. In the future, I will consolidate packages and choose a faster shipping method.

I've paid the $10 monthly fee and will see how it goes. I think it's worth it because they really only charge a $2.50 processing fee along with the amount that FedEx/DHL/USPS charges them for shipping. If you consolidate packages there's a $2 fee--but their 'consolidation' includes repacking into smaller boxes if u want to reduce shipping volume. Comgateway also charges for repacking, so no difference really. I think all the charges are very reasonable.

Overall, my experience with Shipito has been great. I honestly wonder if some of the reviews written online are fake. Those who honestly have bad experiences with shipping companies should share their views. But I feel there are some people who badmouth a company online because they work for a rival company, and those people should be disgusted with themselves. You know who u are.

I really love comgateway. I started using their services about 1 year ago, and have sent more than 10 shipments thru them already (roughly 1 shipment monthly). Their service is PERFECT!
I know it's more expensive than Vpost, but the shipment reaches me within 3 days! (From USA shipped all the way to Singapore) It's much much faster than Vpost.
Also it's cheaper than Borderlinx, and less problematic.

I really can't recommend comgateway enough.
