Reviews“I can say their customer service is the best compare to the others. No problem getting refund if there is any problem. For local seller usually you can get next day delivery. For China seller you have to wait around a week or so. I found their price (for China stuff) far more cheaper compare to the others. Any problem with delivery just email/msg their online support directly, no need to deal with seller.”

Reviews“Been using Redmart for a long time and absolutely no issues. With Lazada liveup the discounts & free deliveries/40 means ordering redmart every few days.
Among the shops, redmart is the better one. Fresh stuff like vegetables etc, we do rely on wet market or near by ntuc.”

“I think they’re really good. They’re very rarely late, if they do then they’ll text you ahead of time. They’ll also text to inform you that your driver is near. They rarely make any mistakes in my orders as well. The return/refund process is also very efficient (in app). I submitted the relevant info and pictures and I got the refund in a day or so. I think their UI is one of the better ones (prime now, all for you, honest bee etc). I also like how they have in house brands, cheaper alternatives. Sometimes they also carry “niche” items, where you might have to buy from a specialized grocery store otherwise.”

Reviews“I’ve bought items from Zalora twice and had generally positive experiences both times.

The items they sell are well organised according to category and items are shipped fast. However, I wish they would list all the available colours of each product in one entry instead of having multiple listings for different patterns of the exact same product.

Do sign up for their newsletter as well! I got $10 off my purchase immediately by leaving them my email address. They do email quite often like 4 times a week so you might want to leave your secondary email address with them instead. Otherwise, their emails almost always contain discount codes that range from 5-20 percent off listed prices. I just got a coupon code today that could be used for sale items as well!

My sister recently got an Eastpak backpack for just $45 when we saw the same bag at a shop in Plaza Singapura for $90! The discounts on Zalora can be pretty awesome if you know the prices of the stuff you’re buying :)”

Reviews“I have used ASOS for years and it has been mostly a good shopping experience. This is a large range of clothes which can be easily filtered to size and price range. The items range in quality, however, the prices are reasonable and with sales being a constant theme there is not much to complain about. The returns procedure has been quick and easy, and in the cases where things have been misplaced, ASOS have been quick to reply to emails. I usually buy two sizes of each item because most items are from different brands which have different size measurements – this should not come as a surprise.”

After having this app it is so easy to list and sell my new and old things without any”
