The Good

A company like Boohoo that has won multiple awards obviously has many good qualities that keep their customers loyal and entices new fans to browse their website.

  • Affordable merchandise
  • Large product selection
  • Amazing promotions for international as well as local customers

Boohoo.com is known as a bargain online fashion store. They offer great prices on all merchandise with most items being under fifty dollars. High fashion items that keep up with current trends are hard to find at such low prices. The website also features a clearance section located at the top menu bar and has a drop down selection of not only discounted merchandise but items that are at a last chance to buy status and are marked down significant amounts.

The product selection at Boohoo.com can keep any shopper busy browsing their store for hours at a time. They have merchandise for both men and women and the website breaks down products into subcategories to make pinpointing what any shopper is looking for easier. The site is easy enough to use and features a drop down menu that breaks each category down into subcategories including clothing type, shoes, accessories, brands to shop by, and more. While both men and women are serviced, women products outnumber those for men. The amount of merchandise is seemingly endless with up to 100 new pieces hitting the store every day. A brand new collection is featured each week, making it truly a 24/7 shopping experience.

When coming to the Boohoo.com website the first choice a customer has to make is what country they are shopping from. The site strives to be completely international and the dropdown menu of countries to select has a number of options. Once a country is selected, the homepage of Boohoo.com is launched and a shopper will instantly see deals and promotions making shopping more exciting. The homepage has several promotions going on at once but one that is a permanent fixture and a fan favorite is their free shipping on orders over fifty dollars for most international destinations. Not only do they give free shipping on these orders, the company will also pay any duties and taxes associated with receiving the merchandise. Another great promotion available at Boohoo is their student discount for all US students. Any student in the United States can register as a student on the site and get an automatic ten percent off on purchases.

The Bad

Although there are a ton of positive aspects, there are a few negatives that need to be addressed.

  • Poor customer service
  • Difficult return policy

On the website, customers can find links to a customer service department. However, the link only leads to frequently asked questions about policies and procedures and then directs customer to ask questions via twitter if they need to speak to a representative. There is a form to fill out and send in if a customer wants to ask a question or get help but the website suggests going through twitter to get all information and questions answered.

The return policy is laid out fairly clearly on the Boohoo.com website with returns being allowed up to fourteen days after an item was received for all United Kingdom customers and a thirty day window for all shoppers outside of that region. Customers must follow a step-by-step process to return the purchased items. As long as everything is done correctly, the company promises a full refund. They do not allow exchanges but suggest instead customers return the items and then make a different purchase. The problem however, comes from the online reviews of the returning process. All reviews found online were negative when it came to dealing with Boohoo.com’s return policy. Most customers said they never received any type of refund nor any confirmation from the company saying their return was sent back correctly. When trying to contact a customer service representative about the return procedure, most reviews stated that no one reached out to them and those that did were not helpful.

The Bottom Line

Boohoo.com is an exclusively online international retail store. They are truly a twenty-four seven fashion store and continue to impress customers with their endless amount of merchandise. They have great deals and promotions for shoppers with their enticing free shipping on orders over fifty dollars and their convenient student discount option for young customers looking to save money.

    Ordered 3 items, which were delivered in a timely matter. I tried everything on and none of it fit, so I put everything back in the original packaging with original receipt, put the return label on and went to the post office. First of all, their return label is just their address. You have to pay for the return. Fine. I mailed everything back, WITH a tracking number. Nearly a month later, there is no refund. I have emailed them twice. The first time, the customer service person emailed me back saying the items haven’t been received. I provided her with the tracking number that gives the day and time of arrival, and never heard back. A couple days later, I received a standard form email thanking me for my interest in returning an item. I responded, again with the tracking number and my order number. I stated that the items were in fact received, and I want a return ASAP. Once again, no reply. Definitely do not recommend buying from here.

    I love that shipping is free over $50 because it is so easy to spend that amount while also getting a good deal with the items purchased. They have a great student discount deal, but typically there is a better sale going on on select items. Returning the items is easy. The only thing that sucks is that the customer has to pay to ship the items back and sometimes it may not be worth it. Their customer service is really good – although they don’t have a phone they do respond to emails within 1 to 2 business days. Lastly, I would give them a ten, but it took them the maximum time to tell me that my order of returns had been received even though I knew three weeks ago that they were there since I kept my tracking receipt. You’ll get your refund if anything doesn’t fit as long as it’s unworn, but patience is a virtue. It could take up to a month. I just stick to dresses and stretchy items instead of denim.

    You will be the one going boohoo if you order from this company. They sell cheap clothing at a cheap price. That would be alright if they didn’t have such lousy customer service. If you order from them, be prepared to be one big unhappy customer. To prove it, try and find a contact phone number so you can call them. They have so many problems, they can’t handle the calls so they don’t give out a number. And if you try to use their system of tweeting and direct messaging, expect it to take days to resolve your issue. I just gave up!! Oh, they will say they’re sorry and think that should fix everything. Stay away!!!
