If you are always on the look out for a bargain, it is unlikely to have escaped your notice that a shopping website and app called Wish has gained popularity over the last few months and that popularity shows now signs of waning. However, if you are still a Wish newbie, you may be sceptical about it. With lower prices than those on the high street, it is understandable. It does ring alarm bells, but mostly you save a lot of money on things because you are buying direct from Chinese factories.
In our experience, it is not a completely perfect system – but then, nothing really is. However, if you want to have a successful time buying things from Wish, we have put together some tips to help you.
Make Use Of Promo Codes And Coupons
Although you can make savings shopping using Wish without them, it makes sense that If there is a Wish promo code available that you can use, you should use it. Even though the first order is where you are likely to benefit from the biggest savings, there is always a Wish promo code for existing customers too. So it pays dividends to sign up.
Always Read Customer Reviews
With any beauty or fashion item you are looking at on a website or via an app, where the picture may make the item look better than it actually is – it is imperative that you take the time to read some customer reviews.
With Wish, for instance, there is even a section that highlights comments about the sizing of a piece of clothing. This is customers who have purchased the item giving their opinion. As clothes are often made and listed following Asian sizing charts, you need to make sure the size you normally buy is going to fit you correctly.
Remember To Read The Shipping Information
When using Wish to shop for items, it is important that you check out the Shipping Information for items. You may find that an item is only listed for £3, which obviously sounds like a bargain. That is until you see that it is going to cost £9 to ship the item out! Included in this information will be some indication also about how long it may take for the item to be delivered.
The Good and The Bad
It is often hit and miss with Wish. However, don’t let that put you off. Pictures can be deceptive. Which is why you need to read reviews too, as noted earlier. However, sometimes, because fashion is relative and everyone has their own opinion about what is nice and what isn’t, even the reviewers can be wrong.
That being said, we have generally had good experiences using Wish.
Use The Buy With Others Option
On the majority of items available on Wish, there is the chance to buy with other customers. This means, you can save some money. If no-one else wants to buy something with you, you will have the option to just buy it at the normal retail price and when anyone else buys it along with you, you will be credited the savings.
