As an online buyer, you have to be aware of all the ins and outs of any online website before you go ahead and shop with them. Wish is a shopping website that was created by an ex-Google and an ex-Yahoo employee. Although all this sounds tempting and our fingers are just finding a way to land on Wish and start adding items to the cart, we would advise you to take some time and read out this post.
Through this post, majorly will tell you how you can get free shipping on the Wish app, we will also give you some insight into this website. Is it legit or is it a scam? these are all the questions that should be popping in your minds right now. Do not worry, we will try to cover up all those legit questions of yours via this post and also tell you if at all you still go ahead and want to buy from Wish, how you can save those extra bucks which you would otherwise spend as a shipping fee. So, with that being said, let us take a look at the article itself:
Is Wish Legit or Scam?
When you open any website, the appearance of it would tell you a lot about it. If you have surfed the news quite a lot, then you would remember the difference between Alibaba and the likes of Amazon or Flipkart. On one hand, the articles listed on Amazon or Flipkart seem genuine, products on Alibaba look scammy as hell. But, that does not make it a fishy website. The same goes for Wish as well. Basically, there is a reason why these websites, including Alibaba and Wish, can offer products at a very cheap price.
Just to give you some perspective, Wish is available as an app and as an online website, and it promises great discounts and cheap prices on various products. Now the burning question would be, is it legit or not? Well, we would leave you here with a YES and a NO.
Wish offers real products and all the items are generally listed directly from the real manufacturers. Which means this app negates the wholesalers or retailers and fulfills the customer orders directly from the factory and send it to the buyers. The app cuts all the in-betweens of the retail chain and thus promising products at a very cheap price and heavy discount.
But this also takes us to our NO point, where there are products that will not always match the size and description mentioned in the Wish app or website. Which might be like a scam to some of the buyers. Manufacturers are trying to gain the buyer’s attention is buying their product and as there is no branding or anything as such, there can be several items which once delivered will never match the description you saw on the Wish website or app and its quality can be very unreliable and unpredictable.
So, our advice to you is to go buy from Wish, only if you are desperate for the item or you cannot live without that product at that price for a day. However, you should also note that there are high chances of you being scammed.
How to get free shipping on Wish?
Well, if you are still not bothered about getting missing out on a few extra bucks and do not care whether the products match the actual description on the Wish app or website, then you are at the right place. Though shipping would not cost you much but saving a few extra dollars is what you should always go for, whether you are buying from Wish or Amazon.
There is a code 3shipping which is very popular for getting free shipping on Wish app on any product. If your account qualifies for free shipping then this code has done its job and the shipping fee will be taken off from your bill. However, it is not guaranteed to work for everyone. So, our advice is to check for free shipping on Wish app codes and your best bet would be Googling it. You can also search for coupon codes on Facebook to get that shipping fee out of your bill.
That’s about it from my side in this post. I personally do not prefer Wish as my go-to shopping platform. Because the reason is pretty simple, to give slightly extra for genuine products and no headache rather than pay less for unpredictable products and a severe headache. However, if you liked this post, let us know in the comments below if you have also been a part of Wish scam or you have received always genuine products from Wish. Until the next post…Cheers!
