In light of this post, please always be careful when you use the shopping services of fellow fans, even if they are someone in the fandom that you might have heard of (because they’re popular or whatever).
- Check out their feedback page (if they have one, it’s usually a good sign if they have one!)
- Do not hesitate to leave negative feedback if your shopping experience has been a bad one (for example: that’s kind of a common discussion on the Lolita fashion sales comms, because people might be afraid of leaving negative feedback - but no one will gain anything from false feedback)
- Remember that unforseen things can happen and that it’s not always the fault of the ss (the mail service losing your parcel etc.), so before you warn others about someone you really should have a valid reason to do so (as in the above mentioned case)
Now, in order to balance out the negativity for a bit: there are also very good shopping services!
I recently had a very nice experience with this shopping service. They seem to have had a lot of orders but still managed to get everything at the lives. Well, I certainly could never manage to organize such a huge order and keep an overview over everything XD; Besides, it must be quite stressful to try to buy all the goods, not forget anything and still enjoy the lives.
If you know other good shopping services, please tell me, I think these people need more credit for what they are doing ♥
