Do you shop on Wish?

Recommended Posts

I keep getting ads from Wish that advertises counterfeit Louis Vuitton bed sheets, d*ldo shaped bongs, Nicholas Cage glitter pillows and more. 

 

All of the stuff on the app is extremely cheap, but at the cost of being made by underpaid workers, child labor, dangerous working environments, products that has been in contact with dangerous chemicals, ripping off independent artists, selling counterfeit designer goods, electronics that potentially burst into fire, makeup that glues your face together and generally every unethical production method in the book. 

 

It's the most used shopping platform in my country many years in a row, and one of most used shopping apps in the world... So do you shop on Wish ? :gaycat5:

**** no. 90% of those things are not what they seem or they end up being broken, etc. judging by what I have read.

Many years ago, when Wish was still new, my friend ordered a dress and she received a piece of triangular fabric :skull:

Everything said about Wish can be said about Aliexpress or Alibaba or other sites like that. Wish is just Aliexpress in a user friendly platform.

I never order from Wish or other sites like it because #1 I'm too impatient to wait for several months #2 I'm too scared something completly different will come and I will have wasted my money

I tried to buy a portable microphone on there, but I was quite skeptical of the site. It just seemed like a scam site.

I've never really had any big problems with Aliexpress tho

like 90% of the stuff I've received, are great

I guess u need to pay attention to the stuff u buy (like looking at the reviews of the item and shop)

 

Never used wish tho

Yes. I've bought their buttons and pins. Took about 2 weeks to get them.

 

I looked into only because I heard two co-workers talking about buying things from there and it being kinda legit.

To think we went from Woot.com to Wish.com. The downgrade.

The products are still produced in such a way it exploits underpaid workers, has strange chemicals in them, and everything I mentioned in the OT, not the quality of the products. :priceless:

I mean, okay but are those facts?

and as I already said, I have never experienced such problems as the ones u describe :dies: so I guess that's your experience with them

also, I wouldn't say some of the OP stuff to be problems :wave:

No. I love myself and have certain standards when it comes to products I use/consume.
