Zalora Philippines: First Purchase Experience + Discount Code

9/03/2013 06:31:00 AM

Zalora, one of Asia’s biggest online shopping websites has been operating their business in the country for about 2 years now, but I haven’t had a chance to try their service… Until recently.

As it was my first time to transact with them, obviously I had to research before purchasing. Most of the reviews I found gave positive feedback.

I had my eye fixed on the Kayla Bracelet because of it's resemblance to a very famous accessory, besides the fact that for only Php395 it does actually look better than the other knock-offs you'd find in a tiange. I also fell in love with the Php380 Jean and Rosz Wrap Bracelet due to it's vibrant color. My total bill was Php875 (including Php100 for shipping).

I was about to check out but feeling that it wasn't worth paying close to a thousand pesos just for 2 items, I looked for other stuff that may interest me.

So I ended up purchasing a Mick + Marty Black Leather loafers called "Francis." Previously at Php1250 but got it for Php937. I don't really buy shoes online because my size doesn't remain constant across all brands, but with Zalora's return/exchange policy I thought there's nothing to lose.

My total bill amounted to Php1712 (shipping is free at this point) but I only paid Php1400 after using a Php250 discount code (from newsletter sign-up) and an additional 8% promotional discount only available the day I made my purchase.

The package arrived in this box after 2 days. I was impressed.

What I like most about the package is that it included the special instructions we entered in the website upon confirming purchase.

There's paperwork about the company's return/exchange policy together with the invoice.

The shoe box wasn't really in good condition. And the bracelets were in plastic. I mean, come on!!! Plastic?!? Plassssttttiiiiccc?!?

It would have looked better if they placed the bracelets inside these cheap see-through bags. Good thing I still have a few left to spare.

I was relieved that the loafers fit me. At least I wouldn't have gone through the hassle of exchanging the item for another size.

It was a little disappointing that the wrap bracelet's hardware wasn't "gold enough" compared to how it looked like in the website. But I still adore it regardless.

Love. Love. Love.

Too much for some people? Not for me. The chunkier it gets the better.

After confirming our purchase, Zalora gave another coupon worth Php500. To get return customers maybe? I'm looking forward to use it soon.

A lot of people are not comfortable using their credit card(s) online, may be too busy for the bank deposit method, or may not know how to utilize Paypal services. Thus, Zalora's COD payment option is definitely a big advantage for the general majority.

Overall it was a great experience for me. What are you waiting for? Shop online at Zalora Philippines now and get a 15% discount using a brand ambassador coupon code! Click here to find out more. Enjoy!
