SHEIN REVIEW ON QUALITY, DELIVERY AND RETURNS
SHEIN REVIEW: WHY BUY ON SHEIN?
Shein.com is a site very similar to Romwe on so many points that one could almost wonder if these two sites do not belong to the same company … (See our Romwe Review) The clothes available on the site make us dream more than one, not only by the more than attractive prices but also by a certain sense of fashion that surprises us even a little for a Chinese site. So, what do you really expect when you buy on Shein? As you will probably notice, the positive Shein reviews do not really fuse on the web but, yet the number of consumers is completely exploding especially female consumers recurring. Shein aim to create a pretty solid fan base.
All of this is due to the fact that Shein is an extremely responsive website and most of the complaints that were valid a few years back will not be valid anymore … Size problems that were not adjusted to the U.S market, absurd delivery time, crappy after-sales service … Not everything is optimal yet, but Shein has made a great progress on the subject. You will still find some negative Shein reviews on Shein that are still valid today:
- Delivery times are always a bit long (2-3 weeks now, instead of 5 weeks in the past)
- Poor product quality
- A service always in English, or then carries out with Google translate
- Products not received (Just all other Chinese sites)
These problems are still present and despite all the efforts of Shein whose number of consumers has probably increased faster than its staff … Some of these annoying points, however, cannot be blamed on Shein. The products are all sent from China, which also allows you to benefit from such low prices (manufacturing, labor, no USA taxes …)
SHEIN REVIEW ON THE QUALITY OF THE CLOTHES. IS THIS A RELIABLE SITE?
As for the quality and size of the clothes, it remains a little bit haphazardly. Some clothes we received pleasantly surprised us, but others are a disaster, especially about their quality really. However, some types of clothes are much safer to buy than others. In general, it is mainly because of the materials they used which is far from noble, generally similar to those found at Zara or H & M. For your first Shein shopping, we recommend buying clothes whose materials are simple to avoid disappointment. Here is the style of clothing that we recommend avoiding unpleasant surprises 100% on:
- The tops without lace
- All the jeans and denim
- Shorts and swimwear
- Clothing below 30 dollars
- Faux leather bags
- Ballerinas and boots (Do not take heels!)
Among the clothes to flee at all costs, we advise against buying any wool products that taper too quickly, clothes with too much fantasy (Although the prints are ok).
DELIVERY TIMES FROM SHEIN
Just like ROMWE, your items will take times to arrive. Shein.com does not specifically require the time, but you can trust the table below that we found on ROMWE website. The wait is rather similar as both sites using the same carriers. Shipping costs, however, will be slightly different from one site to another, although both offer you delivery when your cart reaches a certain amount. SHIPING TO USA
|USA||FREE for orders over US$49.00|
|6-8 days||FREE for orders over US$99.00|
As with any imported item, you will normally have to pay a customs fee. However, these fees apply only to products whose value at the sale exceeds 25 dollars. And this depends on the products you buy, you will find very few items whose price is above this number. In case your product exceeds 25 dollars, it is possible that Shein changes the amount of your bill and caps it at 25 dollars.
This practice is obviously illegal but very common among Chinese sites that want to keep prices down for their customers. In some very rare you will have to pay customs fees, good luck! It is also possible that you receive your order in several parcel at different time intervals, once again, a trick on the part of Shein. Everyone’s opinion on the subject but hey, you’re winner in the end. Shein.com does not sell fake products. Unlike Aliexpress or Wish.com. No problems on this side with customs!
SITE IN OTHER LANGUAGES
As most of the blogs did not really mention the languages of this site, our Shein review is going to talk a little bit of it. Except USA, many other western countries are becoming the Shein’s biggest market. And that’s why the site is totally translated into several different languages like French.
In addition to that, for any language except English, if you have any problem on the site, you can contact the after-sales service who will answer you in your language (They may don’t speak perfectly I grant you …). But this is still a big bonus compared to Aliexpress, where you have to speak English for any claim. Shein attaches great importance to customer satisfaction, that’s why it is possible to return your products within 30 days. The whole procedure is clearly explained here: https://www.shein.com/Return-Policy-a-281.html
SHEIN OR ROMWE, WHICH CHINESE SITE TO CHOOSE?
We often conclude our articles by comparing the two or even three most similar Chinese sites. At the end of our Shein review, we decided not necessarily to compare it to Aliexpress ( click here to read our Aliexpress Review)which is more a generalist Chinese site, but rather to compare it to Romwe ( read our Romwe Review). His twin sister somehow. Romwe and Shein are almost identical and the comments of the consumers are similar. Two shopping platforms where you have to be wary but still very interesting.
Our opinion on Romwe is perhaps slightly more negative because the site has been around for less time than Shein and does not necessarily have its experience in the Customer Service that we consider superior at Shein.
