buyincoins.com review: What I bought and troubleshooting issues.
Most of you have been waiting for this review. So, without much dallying, I would jump right into it. I needed some good quality brushes and having tried the buyincoins brushes before, thanks to my friend Nidhi, I wanted/needed more because a few of my older brushes now need to retire.
|The entire order. Excuse the dirty ones. I can't stop using them.|
My Experience: I had heard that buyincoins.com offers free shipping. But, while adding products, I did not find such options. But, the tracked airmail was not only
cheap, the more I added to the card, the lesser it started to become. It would have become zero, but, I did not want to risk my money on my first purchase.
|Trying to give a better view|
Anyway, including sets, my entire order consisted of 11 brushes and including tracking airmail, it amounted to around $14 only!
Delivery: Once my order was confirmed, it was sent out in 5 to 6 days and in my account, I saw the tracking number. It can be tracked on 17.net or Indian Postal Service's section. However, after a few days, the package location still remained in Beijing. by this time, almost 21 days had passed.
Through the message section in the account I reached out, and they kept saying that it may take around 35 days.
|My entire collection from the site.|
Right on the next day, my package arrived!
There was one brush missing and the way the order had been packed, twisted the bristles of one small brush. I took photos right away to share and in two days, they refunded the price of the missing brush as well as the damaged brush.
Conclusion: The promptness with which my refund and everything had been handled is really impressive. Since the executives are not all adept in English, if you feel they are being evasive, I think it's just language-skill. So, while writing to them, write in very short and simple sentences. :D
Once you order, you would need to be extremely patient.
My suggestions while purchasing:
- Using PayPal is always a good idea.
- If you are looking for 'dupes', don't buy. The products don't claim to be say 'MAC' or anything. They are similar. If you need them go for those.
- It takes a lot of time to deliver. Since shipping expenses are extremely low and sometimes even free, order in small quantity. Your money would be in lesser risk and the uncles and aunties at the customs wouldn't bother you.
- Go for tracked airmail shipping so that you can track your order and actually argue about your case in case of disputes.
I am neither encouraging, not discouraging, but, I myself would definitely purchase from the site again.
What do you think? To try or not to try?
