“The art of imitation”- this is the tag line used by HighReplica.co, an online store keen on convincing us that its imitation purses are of very high quality and can be bought at the most affordable prices. But no matter how good it sounds, we, wise shoppers, know how rare this is on the Internet so let’s see how accurate its statement really is.
HighReplica.co is a nice looking website, very elegant, modern and user friendly. It is full of buttons, menus, banners, and pictures, without being too crowded. Somehow, it is carefully organized and designed as to truly look like a professional store for high quality replica bags.
The website has two banners. One is located on the top of the page and it includes eleven of the most popular purse brands in the world, and the other one is in the left side and it lists all the available designers. In the center of the page there are three promotional banners and in the right there is a selection of new arrivals, with beautiful pictures and a suggestive description. In the bottom we find the links for the informative pages, right under a huge chunk of text about the company and its products.
The collection is pretty wide and diverse. The store sells ones of the most popular purse designer brands in the world. Each brand includes a very impressive number of models, and to ease our access to the designs that interest us, the categories are divided into collections. I was disappointed to notice that there is no advanced search option. There are collections that include hundreds of replicas, but there is no way to sort them by price, shape, handles or color. You just need to browse the whole collection page by page until you find the one that you like best.
The prices of the bags start at $100 and go up to $500. The price depends on the size, style and fabric of the product. The smaller ones as the clutches or wallets cost about $100-$150 while the large luggage bags cost about $400-$500. These prices are pretty affordable and justify the design, materials and utility of the replica bags. Furthermore, these are the average prices available on the online market of imitation purses.
The description pages are plain awful. The largest part of the text is represented by a general description of the collection, to which the replicas belong. The rest is an unorganized enumeration of some vague characteristics, and from replica to replica these vary in terms of quality and quantity. The description fails to correctly describe the particularities, functionality, materials, color, and authenticity markings of the replicas.
On the Payment Information page it says that the company accepts Visa, Western Union and Bank Wire payments, still after adding a product to the shopping cart, you are informed that credit card payments are no longer accepted and that the only available payment method is Western Union. Additionally, you also receive a free product as gift for using Western Union as payment option. I find this as a very doubtful business practice. I am very reluctant about buying a replica product from a website that accepts only Western Union payments. From my point of view, the only safe payment option when ordering online is by credit card. This way your bank will always protect the transaction.
The company ships packages all around the world and for most countries the delivery is free. The only countries that need to pay a shipping fee are: Africa, South and Central America, Russia, Eastern Europe and the Middle East. The orders are shipped with EMS and UPS and all of them are assigned with a tracking number. Once the package is shipped, you will be emailed the tracking number so you can track the order online.
HighReplica.co offers a 14 days return policy. This policy states that all replicas with a quality defect can be returned to the company for a refund or exchange, in which case the return shipping fee will be compensated. If there are no quality defects then the customer cannot be compensated for the shipping charges and a $30 restocking fee must be paid. Also, before returning a replica purse that is defective, customer service must be contacted and supplied with photos of the defects. Only after these defects are confirmed, the customer is authorized to return the product. Unfortunately, the company does not say anything about a repairs warranty. 14 days is a very short time frame for guaranteeing the quality of a replica. What happens if the knockoff breaks in a month or two? Are you stuck with it even though you have paid for it $200-$300 or more?
The pictures seem to be copied from two different sources. Some replica purses have images with a white background while others have images with a gray background. The photos are of very good quality, do not have any watermarks and show the products from many different angles. There are even photos of the dustbag and authenticity papers. Either the pictures were copied from different websites and do not show the actual bags that Highreplica.co sells or the store is just a reseller using two different suppliers. Either way, I wouldn’t order something from this place unless they send me a picture of their actual merchandise to prove that they are legit.
The company does not have a professional customer service. It cannot be contacted by phone, email or live chat. If you need to ask a question you can only send a message through the contact form listed on the website. I do not think that this qualifies as a responsive customer service and does not give me any reason to trust the company. My advice for you is to first try to contact customer service, and order from this store only after you have received an answer from them.
Highreplica.co is an online replica bags company that has invested a lot in creating a beautiful website, a wide collection of fake bags and suggestive product photos. The problem is that there are many things that recommend it as an unprofessional store and these are: lying about accepting credit card payments, unresponsive customer service, and poor product description.
