I am such an avid online shopper, a fact my regular readers know so well by now. Online shopping is just not fun though, all the time. I have had unpleasant experiences once in a while and it has only increased my wisdom as a shopper.
One of the not so pleasant experiences in my online shopping has been with Jaypore.com. It is an online shopping portal for indian/india inspired products. The story and theme of the curated products appealed to me when I chanced upon the website. I really liked the beautiful photography and well-designed products on the website.
After many months of window shopping and browsing at the lovely displayed products, I ordered a pair of earrings. The description of the product said – Hand painted Silver earrings and since I liked the image of the product, I promptly ordered them om COD.
The product arrived within a week (as per shipping time provided by the vendor) and it was packaged very nicely. However, when I examined the product closely, I found that the earrings were not hand painted but the image which I loved so much on the website was a actually a cheap print!! It was a mass produced, badly printed pair of earrings. See, my shipping order from the website below:-
