Way back on the 7th May 2013, I ordered a cracked iPhone 4S phone case from Shopjeen.com. Finding the company on Instagram, as my 2013 mild-hipster self did far too often, I eventually paid $23, which was roughly about £17 at the time of conversion. The price also included the $5 postage, of which I value as incredibly reasonable with future issues seen in purchasing items from the USA to be shipped to the UK.
However, what is not reasonable is the wear and tear it accumulated. Now in three years, this would be somewhat expected but in the space of just a few months, it’s rather concerning with the price that was paid.
Originally disillusioned with the prospect of Shopjeen being anything but a great company, there were many occasions which proved otherwise. After trying to contact them about customer complaints via Instagram, obviously an immature and the wrong move in hindsight, I was eventually shut off and blanked by them.
With feedback suggesting Shopjeen’s unethical trading, I’m not surprised looking back. I have seen no entirely positive responses from customers since June 2013 and in such a view, I wouldn’t purchase a product from them again; even if I felt the desire to.
For those who read this post and have purchased products from the website that have not been delivered, I’d advise you to seek legal assistance. In no circumstance should such a company gain from such immoral and illegal means.
My experience with Shopjeen as a consumer though was positive, my order was delivered within nine days from USPS and the order was correct even with my now negative perception. In retrospect, Shopjeen proposed an ideal fit for what I wanted, which I then received although it’s obvious that not all have experienced such.
I hope that those who have seen a detrimental financial impact from Shopjeen have found a solution and when in doubt, don’t purchase.
