The birth of various online shopping websites have given consumers a hassle-free shopping experience, however, this is not always the case for every purchase that people make online.
KAMI learned that Kapamilya actress Maricar Reyes has recently posted a photo of an item she bought online. Unfortunately, the item endorsed was different from the item she received.
According to Maricar, “PLEASE BE CAREFUL WITH ONLINE SELLER ZALA DEALS / REMEK-DEALS Im doing this because I don't want this to happen to others. The company seems to change names often. Ano na kaya name nila ngayon? AUG 2019 (4th week) - Bought "stainless steel kitchen drain" dish rack (SEE 2nd PHOTO). From FB sponsored post of ZALA DEALS THEIR SITE ishkvshop.myshopify.com SEEMED LEGIT.
“Madaming comments and reviews. SEPT 5 2019 - Delivery. The person who received it for me did not check the item thoroughly before paying. BASTA NAKITA NA PARANG DISH RACK, OK NA. Item delivered was a small chrome dish rack, not at all like the one advertised. Multiple emails, and DMs to Zala Deals were sent.
“After 7 days, no response (SEE 3rd PHOTO) I commented on their FB posts using my personal FB to get their attention. LATER, I saw that the sponsored ads for Zala Deals became REMEK-DEALS. But same logo. I think Zala Deals/Remek-Deals has blocked me because I dont see their ads on my feed anymore and I cant find their page.
“As of Sept 27 2019, they still have not contacted me about my complaints. If they did, there would be no need for this post. WHAT I LEARNED: 1. BUY FROM LEGIT ONLINE SELLERS (We've had good experiences SO FAR from Shopee & Sellers with actual physical stores like Mosaic and Henry's Camera) 2. Its so easy to make FAKE comments, websites, & reviews to look like a legit seller.
“3. If paying by COD, BE "OC" / MABUSISI. OPEN THE BOX & CHECK THE ITEM. If someone will receive it for you, leave DETAILED PHOTOS of the item with the person. (Make sure di tamad mag check yung magrereceive ng item mo the more OC/Mabusisi, the better) If u can't check thoroughly, DO NOT GIVE PAYMENT kahit magalit pa yung courier.
“Return to sender nalang, thanks. I am still a big fan of online shopping. And once in a while i may try a new online seller basta paying via COD. But this time i wont be so naive. My tuition fee for this lesson: P2,289 #ZalaDeals #RemekDeals #OnlineShopping.”
