ROMWE REVIEW, EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS CHINESE E-SHOP.
Another new Chinese site that we want to talk on this blog is Romwe which is totally made for American fashionistas… Designed items and delicately presented, prices more than surprising and especially no risk of counterfeiting. Not bad for a Chinese site! So, what are the pitfalls to avoid? Below is our Romwe review.
OUR OPINION ABOUT ROMWE
Believe it or not, ROMWE is a site with more than 8 million buyers around the world each month. Although rather recent in USA, ROMWE begins to gain popularity, several bloggers give negative opinions. So this article aims to give you an objective Romwe review.
It is true that surprisingly low prices can be confusing whether it is the quality or simply the reliability of the site.
However, the site already has many regulars, and especially by sending an email to the team of Romwe certifies that more than 4 buyers out of 5 return to the site to make new purchases. Given obviously unverifiable, but we still said we were going to ask them;).
So, we did our own little test, after all the site had everything reliable at first sight and the products are interesting. Our review, 5 out of 6 products arrived and they were all at the right size. Interesting to know that we had read a lot of negative comments about sizes. It seems that Romwe has reviewed the size of its different collections to better satisfy its European and American customers.
However, as you will see later in our Romwe Review, the quality may leave something desired, especially on certain types of products. For everything in denim or simple shorts have no problem, but for dresses with more complex designs are not so good. More details are in the next paragraph.
ARE THE PRODUCTS ON ROMWE GOOD QUALITIES?
To judge the quality of a product, it must always be compared to its purchase price. Obviously, the clothes you will find at Romwe are not of high quality … How could the site offer prices as attractive otherwise? To be honest, you will even meet some cases where these clothes will be totally importable ….
So, do you still can buy clothes on Romwe? In our opinion, whether it is on Shein or Romwe, you will always find golden opportunities, but we recommend you purchase the products with the least risk.
For example, avoid lace clothes or dresses with too much artifice, otherwise you will be 100% disappointed!
Conversely, a shirt or a denim jacket are “must-have” at Romwe.
However, it seems that even some wool products taper easily after washing, which is a bigger problem.
Stay simple on your purchases to avoid disappointment :).
WHAT ARE THEIR PAYMENTS OFFERED?
Paypal and credit card payments are available on ROMWE.
We strongly recommend paying all your purchases by Paypal on the site, as you will not only be protected against a package not received up to 180 days for refund, but also protected against any malicious use of your credit card.
THE PRICES ON THE SITE, ARE THEY ATTRACTIVE?
The price of products on ROMWE is the big highlight of the site. Any type of product that is between 5 and 30 dollars per purchase can confuse you, because it is very different from some other sites, like Etsy (read our Etsy Review). The discounts flock, however, should be careful not to be trapped by these 60% “offered” on your first purchase. They did not work for us ….
Very good news on this point. Unlike the majority of other Chinese sites, ROMWE supports customs and VAT charges. A big news when you know the nasty surprises on Aliexpress … Indeed ladies, buying your future pair of shoes from China makes you normally be obliged to pay customs fees and VAT. ROMWE solves this problem for you! What’s more, the site offers you 60% discount on your first purchase, it’s worth a try, no?
ARE THEIR DELIVERY TIMES LONG?
In this case, ROMWE still stands out here. The delivery time being up to one or two months on Chinese sites. However, ROMWE has managed to reduce the delivery time significantly- allow up to 21 days to receive your package.

ROMWE REVIEW: THE NEGATIVE COMMENTS OF IT
Indeed, for a Chinese site it does not bad … but it does not prevent errors remain very common. The clothes available on ROMWE rather well to the chest and hips, however, the sleeves tend to be quite short. No worries to note in shoes and jeans. Another downside, you will find only three sizes available by product.
WHAT ABOUT ROMWE CONSUMER ADVICE?
Unlike other Chinese sites, ROMWE does not offer customers the opportunity to comment on purchased products. This is unfortunate because consumer feedback could have helped to judge the size or quality of an item…
PRODUCTS NOT ALWAYS CONFORM TO PICTURES
Have you seen the product of your dreams on ROMWE? It is quite possible that the final rendering is not exactly the same, even more for shoes. Keep in mind that at this price becomes very difficult to clear a margin with quality products. We advise you to be prepared to receive a very different product from what you expected. Realize the difference before any purchase for cheap product like this.
ROMWE SERVICE IN ENGLISH
The fact that the site is a foreign language version translated by Google translation does not pose too many problems to be honest. However, the problem could become a little more serious when you have to deal with the service that speaks only English.
For all those who have a problem with English, this can be a problem, but nothing insurmountable, isn’t it?
Verdict: ROMWE is a reliable Chinese site when you know the pitfalls to avoid.
Remember that with such a low price you will not have the quality, but that does not stop you to find good deals if you know how to do it. We advise you to read this Romwe review in the first place to avoid problems.
