I like it when replica handbags companies make bold statements like “Discover the meaning of true quality”. In 95% of the cases these turn out to be just exaggerations that have nothing to do with the actual quality they offer. Buyreplica.org.uk is one of the brave online sites that dare to promise us the perfect replica purse for a price that you can’t resist. As always we got to be smarter than that. We should really ask ourselves whether these promises have a shred of truth or not. And to find out what the true face of this merchant is we just need to follow the below guidelines.
The first thing that offers you a clue about the true nature of a fake bags company is the looks of its website. This is its calling card and it should be flawless. Everything about its aesthetics should suggest professionalism and superiority. Unfortunately, this is not the case with Buyreplica.org.uk, but on the contrary. The website is poorly designed. It has a very unprofessional appearance that suggests that this is just another average online store that carries questionable quality knockoffs. The brown and orange color scheme is terribly disadvantaged by the pixelated images and banners. These give the impression of an out-dated webpage that has nothing to do with elegance, luxury and everything a designer handbag stands for.
On top of the page there is a simple and short menu bar with buttons for the most popular brands available. Right under it there is a common looking banner that advertises the quality of the products and the company’s policies. Even lower there is a chunky section of text that praises the site followed by a few sponsored products. In the left side of the screen there is a bar with the available brands and the top selling models. Somehow the page seems disproportioned and difficult to browse. It lacks coherence and proper usability.
The company doesn’t carry that many brands. It includes only 13 company names that can be accessed and browsed by using the right side menu bar. Here we find notorious handbags designers that are surely among the top choices of most fashionistas. The thing is that each brand includes much more than just handbags. We also find belts, shoes and wallets. This makes the collection pretty diverse and attractive for those who are looking for affordable style solutions. There are products both for men and women and every sub-category includes other sub-categories that need to be browsed page by page. The collection is quite wide and unfortunately there is no Advanced Search bar on the page to make things easier.
The prices are displayed in GBP and from what I can tell by comparing the different type of products the prices of these replica handbags are for every budget. There are affordable purses that cost about 80 GBP to 150 GBP and there are more expensive models that vary between 200 and 350 GBP. It all depends on the size of the purse, on the materials and compartments it has. Judging by the default currency I would say that this store targets UK customers even though it delivers packages worldwide.
The photos of these fake purses are a big “no no”. This becomes clear after you browse a few of the categories and you start noticing that the pictures were taken in different places and not in the same studio. There are images that have a white background, some have a gray one and some are hanged from a metal base. And from what I can tell, most Louis Vuitton replicas have the original photos, the ones that are displayed on the real LV website. All these suggest that what you see in the images isn’t what you are going to receive.
To see what the aesthetical differences between one of its replica purses and the original version are I took the pictures of a Chanel Classic Flap Bag with black lambskin and silver chain. When comparing the photos of these two products the differences were immediately obvious. The quality is totally different. The replica has nothing to do with the genuine bag. The material should be high quality lambskin, but instead it is a cheap leather imitation that doesn’t have the same texture and shine. The unique Chanel stitched diamonds pattern that decorates the entire surface of the leather is less pronounced on the knockoff. Plus, the structure and shape of the imitation are not perfectly determined and seem flimsy.
Buyreplica.org.uk accepts only credit card payments and from my experience that’s not such a great thing. The company is able to process only Visa and Mastercard payments. Yes, I do agree that these are the most popular and trusted payment methods for online shopping, but not when the page where you are supposed to enter your card details doesn’t have the https before the domain name. This means that the page isn’t secured and that your information can be accessed by any third parties. Unfortunately, the store doesn’t offer alternative payment methods like Western Union, Bank Wire or Money Gram.
Regarding the shipping policy, this seems a little bit intricate. It says that for Europe the packages are sent with Hong Kong Post or by DHL whereas for other areas the available options are Express EMS or DHL. From what I know, Express EMS is available for most countries in Europe so this sounds very strange especially if you consider the fact that Hong Kong Post takes about 10-20 business days to arrive. Delivery by Kong Kong Post and EMS is free for all orders while DHL shipping implies a fee that varies depending on the destination country. Also, packages sent by EMS take about 7-10 business days to be delivered and those sent by DHL take about 4 to 7 business days.
I do not know about you, but I immediately recognize an unfair return policy when I see one. And Buyreplica.org.uk has one of the most unfair ones I have seen so far. The store claims to offer a 7 days refund policy, but you can’t return the replica bag just like that. There are a series of conditions for this. The main thing is that only products with quality issues can be reimbursed. You can’t ask for your money back just because you are not happy with the product or because you have changed your mind. The same thing goes for the replacement and exchange policy. And of course, all the return costs need to be paid by the customer.
Proper customer services mean a company that is easy to reach by phone, email and live chat. Or at least this is how I see things. If you are not able to contact the store quickly then you can’t fix your urgent matters and this may very well turn this whole shopping experience into a complicated and tiresome process. Unfortunately, this merchant doesn’t offer proper customer services as it only has a Gmail account and Contact Form where you can send in your questions.
I really do not think that Buyreplica.org.uk qualifies as a supplier of good quality replica handbag as it claims on its homepage. This website appears to be just the opposite. Indeed, it has affordable prices, a wide range of replica products and free delivery, but it also fails to offer some things that are essential in this business. These are a secure payment form where to enter your card details, a fair return policy, actual pictures of its own replica bags and reliable customer services.
