Shopping at Lazada.com.my ? BEWARE !


You're gonna shop at www.lazada.com.my ?
THINK TWICE !



If you have never heard of it,
lazada is a Malaysia online mall which is trending furiously lately.
At least I could see its ads everywhere !
facebook, forums, blogs and blah blah.

Recently,
I'm planning to get myself a DSLR.
After doing a little bit of homework,
I found that the little Nikon D1500 would just be right for me.

So I came across these products on this sc*mbag
website, lazada.



From the picture above,
the 4th item on the first row,
it's Nikon D5100 Body only - RM1648.00
and there's another one on the 2nd row,
Nikon D5100 Kit 16.2MP - RM2048

Since my budget is around RM2k,
I'm looking for one that comes with a 18-55mm kit lens.
By looking at the picture above,
the one with RM2048 is definitely the perfect deal.
Why ?
Check this link out :
http://www.lazada.com.my/Nikon-D5100-Kit--16.2MP%2C-3.0-68024.html

It's stated on the page,
it comes with a 16GB of MC instead of 8GB
+ 3rd party lenshood
+ 3rd party ir remote.

and check out the description of the product.


BODY ONLY ?
So your "KIT" stands for all these 3rd party accessories
which make it RM400 more expensive compared to the "BODY ONLY" package ?
In the product picture itself, we can see it's equipped with the 18-55mm lens,
while the one in BODY ONLY doesn't have one.

Actually, I'd called them once to ask about the stock availability, but not on this,
because I did not notice this.
and I HAD DROPPED an order with a random discount code (-RM50).
but the smart me chose COD as payment option ;)

To clear my doubt,
I gave them another call.
I called the customer service hotline.

I asked them about items included in the package.
Without surprise, he read me what I can read on the page myself. lol
Then I started explaining my problem.
He told me that he COULDN'T take a look at the product,
everything will be dispatched as described.
Suddenly, there was an interruption.
The conversation's gone completely silent.
Idk if it's done on purpose or .... who knows ?

So I called again,
another representative answered my call.
I explained my problem again.
This time, I was told firmly THAT
1. Description FIRST - it says body only, it means BODY ONLY !
2. Picture - it's for ILLUSTRATION PURPOSE

So those bloody 3rd party accessories are worth RM400 ?!
So what does that "KIT" stand for ?!

Ok. This is not my main concern though.
So now, since I don't know whether the 18-55mm lens is included and
THEY couldn't really "take a look" and check out at the package with their OWN EYES for me,
so I asked him,

Q : Since I've chosen COD, do I have the right to REJECT the order if the item delivered doesn't meet my so-called requirements ? This is the main point of COD, isn't it ?

A : Yes, you have. But .........

Oh well.
I insisted NOT to cancel my order and
I hung up my phone after saying "nevermind..."

I tried to login on lazada.com.my the next minute...
INCORRECT USERNAME OR PASSWORD.

WTF ?
I'm SURE that both my username and password are CORRECT.
I tried re-typing and logging in for several times.
(Firefox saved my password, so it couldn't be wrong!)
All in vain.
MY ACCOUNT IS DELETED.

Out of anger,
I tweeted and mentioned @LazadaMY on twitter.


Take a look at the time. 2.55PM.
WITHIN ONE MINUTE after I tweeted this.

I received TWO EMAILS from lazada almost instantly !


Take a look at the time again !
It was still 2.55pm !

Now my order shipment is IN PROGRESS ?!
and what the heck on earth is with that "Welcome Email?"

MAGIC.
WOW.
My order's processed right after I tweeted them ;)
Then I tried to login again,
well, my account's BACK LOL.

Oh well,
I gave them a final call to cancel my order and tell the representative about this frustrating experience.
Imagine how FAST and SHORT in duration all these shits happened.

I'm holding myself back from lazada anyway.
If you'd like to know,
You could probably check out their page on facebook.
There were couples of neg feedback from the buyers as well.
Do check out these links as well.
and YOU JUDGE.

  4. I bought my current earphones from there, and paid COD. It turned out fine although, the staff is a bit confused of the things that they sell.

  5. I had a very bad experience with Lazada too, bought my item on 19 June, and was told several times that items are already in warehouse and it will be sent out to me the next day. Spoken to their out-bounders Anne and Satia, and was told that there are 260++ stocks in the warehouse. However, called them again on 10th June and check the whereabouts of the parcel, and was told that there're out of stock???! I had ask for refund and will be stupid if I ever buy anything from them again.

  6. Initially, I have planned to buy a New iPad from Lazada with RM200 discount code. But after reading your blog, I decided not to buy from them. Thanks for sharing your experience.

  10. i had an extremely bad experience with lazada as well..ordered samsung galaxy tab 2 on the 16th July 2012 with a RM50 discount voucher that i got from Starbuck...called them back on the 18th July, asking for the status and they replied that i need to wait for at least 7 working days based on their policy for the item to arrive. Then i called them again on the 24th July as i had not receive anything...I was shocked as they claimed that i might be under suspicion of credit card fraud..Hence,i called the bank to rectify the problem and according to them, the payment has gone through and they gave me the transaction code as the proof to be given to lazada. Then i called lazada again the same day and mention the code. The customer service representative could not confirm there and then about the status so he promised to call me back. On the same day, they did call me back and said the transaction has been approved on the 20th July..It was funny as when i called them previously, they could not detect that it has been approved on the 20th july..only when the transaction code was given that they could confirm..and i need to wait 7 working days from 20th July for the item to arrive. Even though i insisted that it was unfair for me to wait for another 7 working days and they should have called me earlier to inform me about the problem with the transaction, the cs representative was still emphasizing that i needed to wait for 7 working days. So i waited and waited as if...then the moment of truth..on the 27th July (5 working days), I called just to check the status of the item...then the cs gave another different answer..they are having problems with the stock as they are moving to a new warehouse(now i assume the real problem now is not credit card fraud..it's just their way of postponing the date of delivery because of the warehouse problem...excuse of credit card fraud in the first place was just to delay the ordering process)..So i threatened to lodge a report to the consumer tribunal for providing with misleading information..then the guy suggested that i could ask for a refund..and they said start counting another 8 working days from 27th of July then call them back to check the status..Finally on the 9th august, i called them and again i got a different answer...start counting 8 working days from 6th august then call them back to check the status..i could not accept anymore with this unscrupulous technique used by lazada...I gave them final warning...if they did not call me back at 12 noon on the 10th august and rectify this problem once and for all, i will lodge the report to consumer tribunal for undelivered promises, misleading information and irresponsible...u know what...they dont give a damn i guess...not is 10th august 5.13pm..no call from lazada....this is going to court

  11. I gave my feedback and comment on their Facebook page. They immediately deleted and block my access to their Facebook. They are the German company, so the way they work just like NAZI..

    FUCK YOU LAZADA..

    Please do beware of Zalora, Home24 and Food Panda. They are from the same company and management.

  22. My friend bought me an iPhone 4s from Lazada previous Saturday. It's suppose to be delivered by today but there's still none. So I called Lazada in Manila (Im in Cebu) only to be told that my friend needs to send documentations of his credit card and ID. I do understand this policy as airlines do that, but prior to charging or accepting card payments, a declaration is being made to this effect. Lazada does not have that. I asked why we were not told of this, the customer service said an email will be sent to us. What?! After ten days of waiting all we get is an email? And until now there's no email. We will never know this if I didn't call. Not only that we were left in the dark as to what happened to our order, I am also suspected of fraud! Wait, Lazada did not contact us, Lazada already got our money for ten days without telling us of the needed documentation, they don't have a manager to speak with at their customer service, they have not returned my email inquiries... Who is fraud now? And for ten days, if the order is indeed a fraud, the bank would have called them by now and the owner of the credit card filing a complaint. I demand that Lazada ship my phone immediately without delay. They cannot compel us for a policy they never declared in the first place, and they already have our money for ten days and counting! The customer service suggested that I refund the purchase. I wanted to but that would take several transactions again to get the money back plus surcharges from the bank, not to mention interests. No, I will have my iPhone 4s which we have already paid with our money, money that is now earning interests for Lazada without delivering the product, and this shameful post is for Lazada to have for that "bogus" method of getting our money!

  25. Good Faith, I order two items from Lazada using my Credit card. I received a quick confirmation that my order is being processed. The specified delivery date set by Lazada is five days in my area. After two weeks I have not received my purchase and decided to call their customer service department to inquire about my order.
    The first representative took my ordered number and during the long wait the phone was disconnected. I called back and spoke to another person and asked about the status of my order again. The representative stated they received my order but they have not received copies of my ID and Credit card to process the order. I explained I was NOT notified in any way that this is part of the ordering procedure. Added it is NOT mentioned in the ordering process or any other place else. The rep. stated I should have been sent an email about the necessary copies. Checking my email during the call I confirmed that I did NOT receive any emails other than my original confirmation. In discuss I cancelled my order and now the rep. stated they will refund my money back to the credit card. I question the fact that if they are still waiting for copies of my I.D. and credit card, why did they charge my credit card without them? Now I have to wait so long to get my credit. Please DO NOT DO BUSINESS with Lazada if you value your money and time.

  27. I bought a 32" Panasonic LCD TV from Lazada.com on 22/12/2012 and requested to ship to Kota Kinabalu. Today I received my LCD TV in a good condition via GD-Express. I don't understand why there is so many negative feedback about Lazada.com. Shouldnt we Malaysian give support to home-grown setup online companies in order to make Malaysia a better place or more advanced in e-commerce industry? Look at UK, USA or even China, these countries are so advanced in their e-commerce services which benefited their residents for online shopping.

    Last but not least, I don't represent Lazada.com. If anyone would like to challenge my words to support Lazada I can produce receipt from Lazada, shipping status from GD-Express, signed consignment note and even the images of my 32" LCD TV I bought.

    1. Are you an idiot? Lazada is as much a home-grown setup as Starbucks is in Malaysia. Use some common sense. Check out who owns it.

    2. Miss.Phan only said that because she is the lucky one who is not one of them whose had difficult/bad experience with lazada, she should be thankful for that. But, hey, what if she is one of those who got scammed by lazada... i don't think she got the guts to give the statement like she mentioned above ... think through before type ...

    3. Lazada is a German company owned by a German venture capital group called ''ROCKET INTERNET'', also backed by Jpmorgan. They are not at all even 1% an asian company. They have absolutely taken over the internet in Asia. I feel sorry for internet entrepreneurs in Asia because they wont experience that golden internet era where everyone can start online businesses and enjoy the success, instead from day 1 they have a GIANT already operating making it very difficult for entrepreneurs to compete.

  33. Regret to share our experience @ Lazada has been terrible. We ordered some books and till now we haven't received it. The books were ordered in late January and we got a call from their services department that they are out of stock!!! How can u sell something that you have no stocks

  35. @MrKrahoz We, as in the victims of Lazada actually don't get any benefits by sharing our experience with Lazada. You know what, the thing is, your successful deal with Lazada doesn't kill the fact that some people out there have encountered problems with Lazada. It simply means that you aren't one of the victims, period.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Tips for everybody.LOL You need to call them and ask for a commit a delivery date once you place your order online,then there won't be any problem.

  37. I am about to place an order for samsung note II on Lazada, thanks god i saw this post. I prefer to buy from shop lots or Digi instead then ==

    But regarding zalora, i had made two orders, bought shoes. First order, the sport shoes come with yellow spots, so i make a return and zalora gave me store credit (the amount of the returned shoes price). Then my 2nd order is to use the store credit. Still bought shoes, goods received within 4 days, in good conditions.

    I think problem all goes to electronic products perhaps... Suggest online buyer not to buy electronics online... Better go to shop lots for a promised service.

  38. bought few books. but delivery x3 times.

  40. I experienced a good buy and delivery within 2 days with Lazada.com. But after reading these negative comments I am worried with insecurity. I purchased Eos Canon 600D cam with a cheaper price. And I have been very happy, this was a dream come true for me. I chose cash on delivery (some say they do not allow that anymore but I just bought last week).

    Nevertheless, after reading these comments, it makes me want to ask, does anyone know if Lazada.com could be selling fake dslrs? :S Mine is good and smooth, but when people question me in person about whether or not I know if my dslr is original, I feel disturbed.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Just made an order for some mobile phones. But I chose COD. I heard got RM5 for COD? But when speaking to the customer service, they said no hidden charges... only chearges thats stated on the order page... Wonder how its gonna be.

    But just wondering... for COD, can check items first right? Before paying the money? ....

  42. Lazada is sucks!! I had a very bad experience with them yesterday. And there is only ONE person in their customer service i suspect. I called and wrote a feedback to them, the same person replied to me. They never provide to the problem and close my ticket!! LAZADA sucks!!

  46. In any business dealing, trust is the integral part in getting customer's support.

    Such is lacking with LAZADA.

    They can keep posting that certain item is "in stock" but when ordered and paid for, suddenly delivery is delayed despite the item being "in stock" all this while. Some people buy certain items with real intention of using them for work within certain timeframe. So such "inaccurate" ad is enough for me to shun this online as it has affected my work!

  48. I know Lazada had some really shitty problems but are they still like this though? I just made my first purchase about 2 weeks ago. Ordered three items from them. The first 2 arrived two days after, but before the third one that was out of stock, so it arrived only last week. I wouldn't say the service sucks, but I agree that some products always run out of stock. But other than that, I would definitely buy from the again.

  49. A lot of Lowyat members do not recommend Lazada Malaysia anymore.

    Too many "I DONT KNOWS" from their service and TERRIBLE FOLLOWUPS.

    Wasted money and time. Better get your electrical goods from the original distributor like Sony or Apple etc etc direct online people not these kind of 3rd party company who will delete customer accounts for complaining publicly

  52. just bought a PS3 with VISA promo (extra 15% less), yesterday, the instruction said upon checking out, the promo price will be displayed, but upon checking out, the price i the one w/o discount, and confirmation mail was also showing the price w/o discount, so i called lazada but the response was "the promo is over"// but it is showing in their web even today. So i called my bank to cancel the transaction but the bank is too eficient, they already release payment. So fast, so i called again and again and talked to 2 or their indian (i think from india based on the very thick accent) which i hardly understand, maybe the labor is cheap. So they promised they will check with finance, and will refund the balance as according to their promo and will call back today, today no call, so i call back, the same indian guy picked up and give me the same sh*t, the delivery status in Lazada is showing that my order is being processed in their warehouse. as its just been 2 days, i will see how this will turn out. A VISA promo but charges full? this is beyond funny. wish me luck lol.. PS3 aint cheap haha

  53. Ok just to note that i made the order on the 16.12.2013, i got my PS3 today, 18.12.2013, delivery wise this is very fast, i had made a call just now, and they CS informed that they will make a refund of the difference between VISA promo and the original price back to my credit card. But i am not opening the package until i had an email confirmation on the refund.

  54. I have extremely bad experience with Lazada. I placed my ordered yesterday at 4.27pm. Then I checked the status at 4.35pm. It is processing. I checked again the status at 5pm. I was shocked that the status changed to payment unsuccessful. I straight away called their cs. Below r the reasons:
    1) first cs rep: due to wrong info of my credit card.( If it was wrong why did the transaction went smoothly and the amount has been successfully credited from my credit card?)
    2) 2nd cs: due to my username of my lazada account which is a combination of my name n a number. (What the ...)
    3) 3rd cs: due to our system error which we cannot do anything except refund the money within 10days n advised me to place new order. (Go to hell with that!)
    4) 4th cs: we did not receive payment from u n our finance also confirmed the money is not with them. (When asked to speak to finance dept, even their cs manager are unable to pass to finance)

    My credit card bank confirmed that they have released/approved the transaction so that they are unable to revert back since the money arrived at lazada account. But bank finally revealed that lazada has not claim it. (Oh why is their system complicates thing?)

    Lastly bank advised to wait for 7 days for lazada to proceed. If no action (claim) within that period the bank will automatically refund the money to my account.

    Please be careful with them.

  55. Lazada after sales service is horrible. Customer Service promise to call you back but never do. Write email to them, dont bother to reply. Customer Service manager is also rude. They answer calls but don't solve problem. Just give empty promises. They should have a feedback button for customer to rate their service. Hope the Lazada Malaysia Head Of Customer Service, Rajan Manoharan is reading this. If anyone has his email pls give me. I want to write to him and complain. I can provide him all the emails and case number.

  56. I've ordered something it's been a week already I did not get any update on that, no email no text no email even, I've sent an email but no reply on that, LAZADA is FRAUD, They're lucky because in Philippines there is not consumer law if there is I'll sue them first, but I've still sue them under credit card fraud, because I've already paid it and did not get anything, sent email but no reply it means they are fraud. Guys don't ever buy anything from LAZADA, anyone has good experience with LADAZA they're lucky but this is my experience with LAZADA. For me they are Just a Fraud Company.

  57. Lazada sucks, I ordered three items from them, 2 items arrived in 2 days and the last item still missing, when I call them they dont know where is it as they say it was shipped by LEX, what is that I dont know and they also dont know..I keep calling them emailing them but their customer service really sucks..so until today I am still waiting for my item to come.....dont buy from Lazada or you will regret it sooner or later.

  58. I also have a bad experience with them.I have made purchase on the 9th february. however, then i notice there a voucher code when i open lazada website on my handphone. the strange thing is when i open the website on my laptop, there is no voucher code shown. so, i decide to cancel the order and make a new order. However, it took more than 5 days for me to get the refund back on my credit card.at first, lazada's email said it takes 3-5 working days. on the fifth days, i check, there is still no refund, the amount has not been deduct but been hold. and then i email again asking the status of refund. now then they said it takes between 5-10 working days. they really have waste my time waiting for an email said the refund has been done. luckily i have cancel the purchase although i have waste my time waiting for the refund. no wonder the price is so cheap. I've been doing a lot of purchase on ebay website and other online store but this thing never happen.

  59. Very bad experience with Lazada, the first time (last year), they service was good, but this year I got mad with them, and I got worry whether they really have been shipped my order or not, because this time they shipped with LEX without tracking number and I got no way to track where my item is right now, keep call customer service and they said will call back but eventually no. event email, feedback form and facebook message no reply from they as well. BAD customer service and BAD shipping method they provided, How can they shipped an expensive order with no tracking number ?

Had my bad experience.. ordered a gopro and some accessories on the 12/3/2014.. status online shows item has been shipped, called them on the 17th, one of their support member said item is being shipped from taiwan, and has already arrive in KL, and will be shipped to me in Penang by 18/3/2014. Then on 18th March called to ask what happened to shipment, another person replied saying item still has not arrived in KL and will take another 1 to 2 weeks. Got really mad coz their are not consistent with their shipment status. Then called again to cancel, asked me why i wanna cancel, told them i rather get the stuff else where given that their service is bad. Was pretty civil with them. Then told them to confirm my cancellation and send me an email, which they still have not for the past 24 hours. Did a follow up with them via email, fb, etc, still no response. Lazada, epic fail. I must say, there were times when they were really fast with delivery, then this happened. I am ok if they had communicated clearly with me that item is coming from Taiwan and have to wait for 2 weeks if they had told me right after i placed my order, but not after a week waiting and wondering what happened. Then each support member gives a different answer, one even told me, yeah sir, please cancel, only then Lazada will know how its losing customers.

    Now I am not sure if the item is cancelled in their system or not and kinda stuck in limbo, coz I dont want item to be shipped to me even after cancelling it. I never do online transactions with them because i dont trust them. Would not recommend them to anyone anymore. I'm done with them.

    Ipmart is so far my preferred one, no bad experience so far except that they dont carry much options. They are very consistent with their communication, they even call and let me know that item order will take x number of days, and if i am ok with that only then they proceed. Also when item is shipped, details with photos are emailed to me. I really that, but they don't carry much choices.

  61. I have ordered once before and received item within the 6-8 business days they promised. And use COD method of payment. The quality of item was as expected. Now I'm buying an inflatable sofa, which I assume will have the risk of being punctured or something. But its not that expensive so I mean loose a lot if there are any issues. But I read on here that one customer received a China-made version and Lazada said that the customer changed it themselves...sooo that is scary. I guess they could say that I damaged the item myself if inflatable chair has a hole or something when I try to pump. Now stupid me not even sure if they include the pump. Never mind it will be as before, and I'll be satisfied with my purchase

  62. Hi! Wow, this is a popular website with so many people commenting, hahah. I am going to buy my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 from Lazada Malaysia by cash on delivery since it is RM 500 cheaper ( COD is much more reliable according to my reseach if U buy from Lazada ), but after reading all these comments, I'm confused because the feedback is mostly positive on the Lazada website. I even found people claiming that Lazada sell them a faulty/counterfeit products on the internet. So, do anyone has a good and reliable place/website that I can buy my phone from? ( I prefer shops rather than website )

    Really appreciate if someone can help me... :)
    and I live in Kuala Lumpur by the way ( so recommend shops from KL :) )

    # and I decided that I am not goin to buy that phone from Lazada XD

    1. Hi.

      Have you ever heard of Directd in Subang Jaya ? Their price is probably the lowest in KL/Selangor area. Visit them if transportation isn't an issue for you !

  63. They send me a wrong item, not only that they changed the item on my receipt to look like i ordered that item while charging me the same price.

    Still waiting for my refund, its been almost a month, they gave the same bs "your refund is being processed you should get it by this week," week after week is the same.

    How is this company still running after years of doing this?!

    1. Please don't said you care about customer.

      I bought a digital camera on 15/Apr, the details mention 2-3 delivery date (I AM PRETTY SURE BECAUSE I NEED IT FOR MY WORK!) and didn't mention IMPORT! I received sms on 16/Apr that the camera is courier out. 18/Apr i haven't received and i make my 1st called to C.S. Your C.S told me my item is on delivery and i will RECEIVE on 21/Apr. Ok, Fine since i need it on Tuesday. But unfortunately 21/Apr i didnt received and i called C.S again. C.S told the item is currently on CHINA (WHAT THE HELL?! I am not buying import item) and only arrived on Wednesday but i can't trust this Malay man (not recist but i am sure he doesn't know what he is talking!). I log an email to C.S again for confirm my delivery time and i received a reply told me the item currently on HONG KONG custom. Do you understand how my feeling? Is ok, i log a complaint letter and try to confirm again about delivery time. This time your C.S is worry about reputation and call me to explain but this is still a stupid fella to handle this case! I want to know when is the delivery time please do not answer me MAYBE THIS FRIDAY! what the hell you means MAYBE? You don't need to reply if the answer is STILL MAYBE! So stop telling peoples that you or LAZADA care about customer.

  66. You're RIGHT! Lazada provide a bad services! THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU CHOOSE LAZADA!

    I bought a Digital camera at LAZADA, in the sales page i saw 2-3 delivery day but after my purchase they change to 6-10 delivery day! what the hell?

    LAZADA is consider stupid company who provide stupid services and hope all of you THINK TWICE before buying somethings at LAZADA!

  67. I like Lazada and I totally don't care what you guys say, the products are cheap and also they have cash on delivery, if you are not happy with that product or service, cancel it, and if they block your account just make another one, and if you don't like shopping at Lazada, I guess u r happy to pay extra money for petrol and as well as going to the shop and paying extra RM50 or more for the same product u could get at Lazada, and also if your product is broken at these shops you can't return your item, once you pay for it. All your guys complaints is so unmatured

    1. Yes the price offered by Lazada is indeed extremely low. But hey, is that the only factor you look at when you purchase something ? Warranty and service mean something when it comes to buying expensive stuff/gadgets.

      Would you pay few thousand bucks for something that you know it'll take forever to arrive ? COD ? Yes, but not through Lazada especially when you need your item urgently. Waiting for Lazada's delivery is an eternity.

      Sometimes it's worth paying RM50 or even RM100 extra for something you can check/inspect to make sure it's in good condition before you buy it. Not to mention about the warranty. Who knows when you claim your warranty through Lazada, they are going to twist everything round and round without the knowledge of where your item is being stuck at ?

      We are not happy ? Yes, we do cancel our order. We do request refund. But heck, even cancellation or refund takes WEEKS for lazada ! Didn't you read all the comments UP THERE ?

      Also, I don't see any problems with sharing experiences.You see them as complaints, I see them as feedback. Now Lazada certain has some problems with the way they deal with their customers. All the victims are sharing their painful experience with Lazada, so that people get to know that these are the problems that exist. I don't see anything wrong with that. I don't see how this is IMMATURE.

      So whenever you encounter a problem, you just keep quiet and avoid confronting it ? If this is how you live your life, God Bless You.

      To be more precise, the one who said "I totally don't care" but at the end bothered leaving a comment here is the one who's truly IMMATURE.

  68. Recently wanting to buy a gopro from Lazada and as soon as I click proceed after completing my Payment method, the website screwed and go under maintainance.

    a few minutes after that i got a message from my bank telling me that the amount for my order is charged for Lazada.

    got excited and check my order on Lazada's account and it stated my payment was unsuccessful. wth.

    called and their customer said they will refund my money in 7-14 days. do they know if i invest that money in 7-14 days i can get double amount than i paid??

    ridiculous inefficiency which is troublesome to the customer.

  69. Well Guys... You Cant find Perfect Seller.. I been buying stuff from LAZADA.MY since last year.. I will say they are not the best... yet I still prefer LAZADA.MY... why? Return policy 14 Days.. ( I have return item and got full refund + postage).. At times yes there is delay in product delivery.. TIPS for all the LAZADA Shopper.. Check Who is the seller ( lazada or 3rd party) you can find that details when click on products.. Usually if its from LAZADA, delivery within 1-3 days, unless OOS. I had bad experience with them too.. but their discount price and payment method option is awesome... I always compare price with lelong.my and mudah.my before purchase.. Not everything is cheap in LAZADA... My Rate : Lazada 80% thumbs up... Why again (Item sold are not refundable typical Malaysian shop/seller policy).

  70. I havent had a bad experience and ive bought a bunch of things from there, what you need to do as with any online shopping is research the product thoroughly before you buy it, do some googling of model numbers etc etc, read the description. be a informed buyer.

  71. Was thinking of buying a product costing almost RM1k. Before coming to this site, I noticed the product description was too brief and did not state what are the accessories included (i.e. what's in the box is blank). Also noticed the photo of the product is different from what is shown in the official website of the company of the product I am interested to buy. Now after reading all these mainly negative comments, I am going elsewhere. Lazada, buck up or you will lose lots of customers.

  73. Never had a problem with Lazada. At times delivery may be slow, but I think they offer great deals. Most of the time I'd buy from LAZADA itself but I do have several experiences with buying form 3rd Parties. So far, all went well. In regards to customer service, the rep behind the phone are also human beings and are subject to emotions and life circumstances so do not ever expect a perfect service from individuals. Btw, to those paranoid people out there, I am not from Lazada and I am not related to the company in any way. Well, the only relation I have with Lazada is that I am their customer and they are my dealer. So yeah. Bad mouths here and there, in the end, its mostly just a bad experience or two and they start becoming drama queens. Society can never be satisfied and that's just all about it.

  75. My personal experience, i made 2 previous purchases with lazada before, it was smooth and fast, even delivered on time. But the 3rd purchases seems to be the problem, i purchase a psp 3000 from the selection, all went well, in processed and will be shipped, the next day i get an email and call from lazada saying the item is currently out of stock, funny really, and so the next thing i do is visit the page again, the psp3000 is still there status available, this time i click it, i doesn't allow COD, and the next day i check again, only they put the items is out of stock. HAHAHA, seriously lazada, you need to re-categorize all the items, and check the availability status of the product, some product appeared on both category, i even notice, some products from different suppliers are not COD available, only credit transactions, different suppliers different payment approach. No offence, just a piece of my thoughts. Thanks for sharing.

  78. I ordered an i-rova from them, GDEX worst courier, They dont even bother to call you even if you place a note outside, they will just hang a note at your door knob that there's nobody home.
    after 6 days, finally 1 smart GDEX courier called and I was able to open the door(Sorry we got a steel gate and cant hear even if you knock) and got the item. I thought the nightmare ends, but to my surprise. The item is used already. Dust box got dust and hairs in it. even the side brush is not in good condition, the unit itself is dirty as well.

    well, called them and sent them the pictures of the item. the only thing they can say is if you want to cancel, you will received the money within 3-5 business days or you can return the item to our warehouse(WTF) I told the CS, is it my fault, why would i bring the item, have someone to pick it up. 1-3 days again...then after that delivery of 1-6 days...it's been hell with Lazada.

  79. Hi, I had twice BAD experience with Lazada so called 'best online purchase' bla bla in Malaysia.
    1. Items bought is not as per illustrated.
    2. Item bought never arrive in 2 weeks (5-8days become 2 weeks??). Online tracking status says ' ready to despatch'.Only come to know when you call. no stock so they cancelled and will reimburse the money.WTF !

    Lazada is just a lousy company. They are just doing such dropship. I prefer to buy right from the shelf. Bloddy bastard Lazada !

    Please warn our family and friends about this. Or will regret for for life.
