Just because an item is cheap does not make it a good deal so be careful when buying things, only buy through trusted platforms and know just how to spot a fake designer brands – even if it’s online.
Unfortunately, it’s not any easier if you shopping the conventional way, by going to shops, because it only leaves you at the mercy of persuasive sellers who would convince you no doubt even when it’s fake to buy… after all they need to make money right?
Here are a few ways to avoid buying fake items.
- Business Reputation. The best way to avoid being taken advantage of is to purchase luxury goods through reputable businesses. We recommend you shop from amazon or directly from a designer site with a good reputation. Buying any product is quick and easy once you have an assigned warehouse address with Shoptomydoor. On Amazon, Ebay, you get to see real reviews left by buyers of same products to help your buying choices. If you aren’t okay by the reviews search for similar products.
- Train Your Eye. Looks can be deceiving and there’s no quicker way to learn that than by testing yourself. Quiz yourself to determine whether you can tell if a Versace shirt, Christian Louboutin shoe, Gucci bag, Swarovski jewelry or Jersey is real or fake. According to experts, some tip-offs include poor stitching, crooked labels, or misspelled brand names. Also, certain brands have hardware like zippers, clasps, screws and colours that are specific to their brand. These are identifiers that help shoppers know they’ve found the real deal.
- Look for Red Flags. It’s cliché, but true: If a price seems too good to be true, chances are, it is. Sure, there are bargains out there, but be realistic about what name-brand luxury items typically fetch. If the price is significantly lower, chances are you will get what you pay for.
