Mart of China online company false advertising

May 11, 2012
review #317939

Mart of China is an online China company selling clothes online which I had numerous issues with. Setting aside the smaller ones and only concentrating on four major issues:

Firstly, false advertising. They advertised a jacket as leather. Made of leather. So I bought it. I arrived (it arrived almost a month later although I was charged for UPS) and it wasn't leather! I chatted online with the supplierr and they confirmed it was PVC and when I said it was false advertising, was merely told "ok, we'll remove the leather from the description". I don't want PVC, my skin can't breath in it.

Secondly, another item which arrived was of a totally different product. After taking pictures of the product and sending it to them, they admitted the blouse I ordered was out of stock so they substituted with a tube. I don't wear tube and don't want it.

Thirdly, I asked for refund of the two items and they refused. Still in dispute after 3 weeks.

I wrote a number of reviews of the clothing I bought (15 pieces) and obviously the bad reviews failed to be published on their site.

Lastly, they overcharged for shipping costs. They probably charged me for around 6kg but the actual weigh was only 4kg.

Hi everyone. I thought I would quickly throw in my two cents here :) I own an online merchandise website that has been really starting to pick up on the traffic and was looking for a way to keep my customers on the site longer and hey buy some stuff. I had heard about Mart of China off Instagram and had a look through their stuff tonight. It was a well made site and so far my only complaint is the high cost of shipping. I've just purchased two dresses and a pair of leggings to test their quality, service and shipping time. I actually had found this blog afterwards doing a little more research on the company. To be honest it scared me and I even started to head to PayPal to cancel my order. Instead I read just a little more on here and came to the realization that maybe just maybe they are being unfairly persacuted by a competitor as all the major players in this convo are not willing to give a purchase order #. So for the sake of all those reading this after me and for my own *** curiosity I kept my order :p Stay tuned for the conclusion of my experience with MOC. Cheers

We always take customers' feedback seriously especially the terrible ones. Because It is the ones that tell us where we can improve that are valuable
So we asked the reviewers to tell us the order number to help resolve their issue. , But none of them replied us back. The truth is they never purchase from our site and therefore cannot provide an order number. All their make ups is nonsense and pointless.

This online clothing store has great clothes, jewellery, basically items for cheap and affordable prices. There is also an in style, trendy, chic fashion sense on their clothing. I would order there again. My only problem is that their material for the clothing is very cheap i.e But it is a good place to shop especially shoes.

I chose the DHL as the courier, and they delivered the package door to door.I was

extremely surprised when my orders arrived in 7 days! wow!

My co-worker saw my orders and they all love it. I recommended this site to them

Their site maybe outdated, and I found their lack of user reviews to be very wary of at

first, but I personally love this site. And I hope any potential buyers have the same luck

I did. Keep in mind that this isn't some gold mine. You need to treat the staff with

respect when they give you the same in return. Trust your gut and use common sense.

The designs on the websites were what I got in actuality in person. I was a bit worried about that given what some other reviews for other wholesales were like, but this wasn't the case.

I did make sure to check all the measurements and I purposefully did not order anything that could turn out problematic (e.g. chiffon, shirts that might be too transparent, etc). I think with these wholesale sites it's just a matter of avoiding potentially bad materials and/or designs that might be hard to pull off/replicate. There was a dress that didn't turn out right for me - but that was because it didn't fit me the way I wanted to, the material itself was fine.

Given what I paid for, and that I received everything more or less in less than two weeks, I'm pretty happy! Prices don't always correlate with quality either - one of the t-shirts I ordered was around 7US dollars and had better material than one that cost double that.

For reference, I'm 5'4", 117lbs, wear normally a S to an M in North American clothing. I have bigger shoulders too because I do work out a lot. I'm not a skinny Asian model like the ones who wear the clothes in the pictures -_-;;;

Maybe I was lucky? But here's my experience....
I recently ordered 20 pieces of clothing from Martofchina.com. This was after much googling of other asian wholesale websites such as wholesale-dress, wholesale7, CCT, etc, etc. - this site seemed to have overall good reviews. My order consisted of cotton-mix t-shirts, sweaters, and dresses. I had to change a size of a certain dress that I ordered, and I found the customer service to be prompt and polite. I had replies to my emails within 24 hours (often faster - I'm ordering from Canada and have a tendency to stay up late at night, so when I email them late at night in Canada, I usually get replies within 5 hours - probably working hours in Shanghai). I tried their chat too and found the clerk to be helpful and polite too.

I like the site and I like the clothing. However shipping is very very high. Paying $90 in shipping charges is out of reach for me.
A friend of mine ordered a few dresses here for a big event, unfortunately the dresses didn't fit and some of the buttons were broken on arrival. We didn't really think much of it, or I guess we didn't mind it at all.

A few months later I start my own order! Mostly leggings and tops, and I found out everything is done through e-checks in PayPal which saves me so much time. Anyway, their customer service is really on pointe, consistent, and extremely polite. I had a few out of stock things in my order and not once was I pressured or even worried that I'd be scammed if I said to refund my PayPal. Sure enough, they were true to their word. I honestly love this site for their staff, so don't knock these guys too much.

Before I made the order, I asked the customer service about the size.they told me to choose one size larger for men's clothes and women's shoes. My size is 37,so I chose size 38. When I got them, they just fit me perfectly.I guess it is truth that their size run small.
