Fashion Shopping Platform ZAFUL Cut Out Mediocre Suppliers

ZAFUL clear product SKU, model information, add tracking supplier’s information in PDM system

Following establishing photography team, hire foreign models to shoot product images and ceased cooperation with suppliers of low-quality products or images last year, By the end of April, all the products on ZAFUL.com featured the only one SKU. And all vendors information can be found in the Product Data Management (PDM) system. ZAFUL believes that showing quality products and truth images play a very important role in extending a company reputation over all customers, especially for new users.

“The speed is a bit slow, yet,” said ZAFUL’s Marketing Manager Sara Lau “We did put a lot of focus on making sure the payment is security and the return and refund get easier. We used to be too confident and dependent on our suppliers. but with the fast increasing of customers and order volumes, things were a bit off the normal track. However, our desire to offer high quality and true images has always been firmly determined. and now, it succeeds.”

In the upper right corner of each product page of ZAFUL, there is a corresponding SKU number, which can be found in ZAFUL’s PDM (Product Data Management) system. It allows staff to track the product corresponds to the researcher and buyer, model information of the picture, copywriting and suppliers’ information and so on. For the supplier, ZAFUL PDM system added a score function, which through product quality, supplier inventory, stocking and sales dimensions to rate suppliers. Suppliers with low scores will be rejected.

“We only work with vendors that reflect our values of honesty, quality, and trust. We will end relationships with any suppliers that do not meet our standards. This standard is more stringent than in 2016. We not only to control the quality of products in the sample inspection time and pictures but also keep continuous supervise suppliers with the use of the scoring system in the follow-up cooperation.”

What You Have To Know About ZAFUL Delivery

“I ordered two bikinis on ZAFUL 2 weeks ago and I haven’t gotten yet, The shipping time for one was 3 days and for the other was 5-10 days”. what? it only needs 3 days with global shipping to deliver your order? And your order’s value may be no more than 10 dollars? how could it be?
There is no less than one customer misunderstand ZAFUL’s processing time. they take processing time as delivery, hold the idea that if they place an order, they will get it within 3 days, or 5-10 days. the common actual delivery time is of cause more than 3 days. then, they may think ZAFUL is a scam, it scammed us, take our money but did not send the item.

However, ZAFUL is really a scam? did you ever misunderstand it? do you know about it delivery time, shipping time and processing time? if you do, then you know whether zaful is a scam or not.

The total time for zaful deliver your order is processing time plus shipping time.

Why does ZAFUL need processing time?
the running cost for international trade is high. ZAFUL’s net margin is low. it means zaful need to keep a little inventory management. so zaful will prepare your items just after you placing an order. this is processing time. Usually, it needs 3 business days, 5-10 business days or 7-15 business days. you can know it under the item’s description like this:
Processing Time: Your item will be shipped out within 5-10 business days.

zaful processing time
many customers take it as shipping time or delivery time, it’s wrong.
and zaful is shortening the processing time and stocking some products. instead of showing the processing time, it said: Availability: In Stock Hurry! Only 3 Left!

ZAFUL Swimwear Review

We are always quick to said “scam” when purchasing with Asian online store because there is some amateurism and the cultural difference there when they first start out, Is ZAFUL scamming people? I personally don’t think ZAFUL is a scammer or that there’s reason for distrust.

ZAFUL swimwear review

most Asian online stores go through a time period where they’re still developing, making their service feel a bit more “amateur”. However, if you look at ZAFUL, for example, I’ve seen the website evolve to the point where they have a warehouse in USA so return shipping has become so much cheaper and easier.

zaful swimwear

Last but not least, ZAFUL has some really cute items on offer if you shop wisely. I also would advise you to pay with PayPal, so you have buyer’s protection in case items don’t show up.

Angry ZAFUL Customers Or Biased Journalist?

Did ZAFUL leave customers angry or Some biased journalist misleading customers? There is an Australian online article presents a negative review of several cheap online fashion stores. ZAFUL is named as one of them. However, the article is so biased.

biased news about ZAFUL

it only quotes a few unhappy customers, it seems like the journalist has done no research into finding happy customers to give an objective view. Actually, ZAFUL has many satisfaction customers. AngelicaAlvare leave reviews about ZAFUL on reselleratings.com which is a famous review site and said: “I came across Zaful via FB ads and i fell in love! Everything is always on discount and when my clothes arrived I was SO IMPRESSED!! They fit snd look amazing! Definitely my go-to online store!!”. We know any business has growing pains, and ZAFUL is keep improve itself always.

And that article is also a misleading article because – even though she names ZAFUL only once in the first list of stores – none of the examples are from ZAFUL. There were other news take the same way – referred one brand in a negative report but take no examples.

She refers to a Buzzfeed article, but gives no link to that article and no references to her “facts”. It is also poor journalism in that she quotes the head company profits from 2014, in fact, ZAFUL seemly established on 2014, the profits is not suit for ZAFUL- this makes me think she is just patching together snippets of information she has found elsewhere and has no real or current source.

As such, this makes the entire content of her article sensationalist and unreliable. But it do misleading us to hold the ideas that ZAFUL is a scam or offers rubbish.

I feel this is not only poor journalism, but verging on libelous content. I wrote an email to the journalist (her email address is included with the article) but no answer.

Do You Get What You Looked On ZAFUL?

Online shopping is a risk. You may get the wrong size, or different with what you lookded. In these cases, complaints always happened, some angry reviews even said you are a scam. ZAFUL , a cheap fashion e-store which specialized in boutique-style clothing from both interior and designer brands, now would like to announce the release of a new function- ZAFUL Model Stats to help customers get what they looked on ZAFUL.

Many websites have their own unique strategies for retaining and attracting customers, 3 cheap e-retailers ZAFUL, Rosegal and Sammydress have realized this at an affordable price for high quality clothing. Rosegal focuses on the fusion of retro and modern styles, and Sammydress have the most complete product line. Their customers which often causes confusion in size are all over the world.

zaful-scam-model

But Different regions have different size charts, for example, a medium in one country may be considered small or large in another. These 3 sites are looking for different ways to mediate the issue of choosing the wrong size.

Take ZAFUL for a example. now ZAFUL would like to announce the release of a new function- Model Stats. customers can compare the model’s statistics with their own statistics to understand the size dimensions by this function. ZAFUL will display Model stats below its the sizes guides. Model statistics are information about the BWH of models and their height and weight. All model statistics are approved by ZAFUL models and will be published and shared on items’ page of ZAFUL. Customers can compare these statistics with their own stats to get the right size for them. Model statistics are intended to be used with dimensional drawings for best results and to ensure that the delivered product dimensions are appropriate. In addition to helping customers choose the right size, model stats will help customers see the real product. The pictures taken directly by the photo team used by ZAFUL.

Are Negative Reviews On The 3-Part Review Site True?

I am an reputation protector, when I Google some key words about some businesses, found a lot of scam and other words, when I click in them, I found that most of reviews are the negative even angry. Are these negative reviews really true? Do a business can continue to operate itself with these bad reviews?

I chose zaful as the analytic object. I tried to leave a comment in the outscam.com, i wrote a positive reviews, wrong e-mail address, a few days later, outscam posted my reviews, and then I tried to leave a bad reviews again, another wrong e-mail address , Then outscam posted my reviews again. which makes me ponder, are these reviews on third-party reviews online true? Why do not these review sites filter out false comments by non-real users?

So I contacted outscam, want to tell them some reviews are not true, and hope a re-check, and then I got these replies:

Hello,

Unfortunately the complaint cannot be removed. Please send us a rebuttal describing why the review cannot be trusted. Provide as many details as possible, including your customer support phone number, email and address.

If you still insist the reviews to be removed, this can be done through our paid investigative program only.

Then i try to provide a rebuttal describing to them and ask how much i should pay for it? Below is my email:

Hello

1.if a user want to leave a review, he or she just need to provide a email, and the email maybe random, you can’t make sure whether he or she is zaful’s customer or not. i have a wordpresss blog, i know some comments may be not true. then i try to leave 2 comments to this page, and it do appeared. there is no users’ name or order number under these reviews, it’s hard for our customer service to contact them and solve their problems. I’m not say every reviews is unreal, i just want you check all reviews and collect customers’ information for our customer service to solve the problem.

2.i still insist the reviews to be removed, if this can be done through your paid investigative program only, pls tell me more details about it, If this is within a reasonable range, I will take it into consideration.

Looking forward to your reply

Best Regards

Next day i receive a email from outscam, wow, money, it’s really a good thing, that’s why so many people want it. The following is outscam’s reply.

Hello,

The service costs $4000.

Once the payment is made, the report will be removed within 24 hours (working days).

If a new report is posted by the same person, or the same text is used, it will be removed free of charge. As an option, we can offer a filter for all future complaints ($49 per month).

Then i refused and have not receive reply from them.

Is ZAFUL a scam? Or just someone want to get money from destroy others’ reputation? Pls feel free to leave comments here.

Zaful is NOT a Scam

Is Zaful scam? Maybe not. Zaful is a online retailer of clothing. Bikinis from Zaful are very popular among young women. Every day, thousands of customers receive their beloved items with super quality and afford prices form Zaful.

Zaful is not a scam. In order to ensure the financial security of every customer, Zaful has set up a professional team named Risk Control to make sure every transaction is made or authorized by the payment account holder.

  1. Why am I being Asked to “Verify” My Payment after I have Paid the Money?

Some customers may receive a email asking them to verify their payments after the money has been transferred already. Some customers may feel confused. “I ALREADY GAVE YOU MY PAYMENT DETAILS – WHY DOES ZAFUL NEED ANYTHING MORE?” Zaful has receive my payment, why does it still hold my order, what does it want to do indeed?

This is because your order has been held for a standard anti-fraud check by Zaful. Please rest assured Zaful just want to ensure the safety of your money.

Sometimes, unfortunately, thieves gain access to people’s credit card details or Paypal accounts. The thieves often try to use the stolen details to pay for products bought online. When you pay us your credit card or bank card payment is processed BY A THIRD PARTY (IE PAYPAL, GC OR OTHER PAYMENT COMPANIES) AND NOT BY ZAFUL DIRECTLY. THEREFORE WE HAVE NOT SEEN ANY OF YOUR FINANCIAL DETAILS OR YOUR CREDIT CARD DETAILS.

This is why Zaful has to confirm whether the payment was authorized by the payment account holder or not. To protect everyone against a small number of fraudsters, Zaful has to apply these payments ID verification checks randomly.

Checking more details here: http://www.zaful.com/m-article.htm?id=100

2.Why Zaful NOT Verifythe Payment before Getting My Money?

Payment verification is a common practice for online stores to make sure all transactions are authorized by the payment account holder. The goal is to prevent fraud and ensure customers payment safety and security for both buyers and sellers.

Zaful cannot review the information until the payment process is completed. Payment safety and security can only be assessed once received. This verification procedure is necessary only once to make sure the payment has been authorized by you.

3.The Privacy Policy——How ZafulProtect My Privacy after Getting My Personal Information?

Zaful wants you to have an enjoyable shopping experience and while it is necessary for Zaful to collect certain personal information. When you purchase products on Zaful, Zaful may ask you for personal information, such as your name, email address, gender, age or birth date, zip code, country, IP address, browser information, social media name, telephone number, billing address, shipping address, credit card number and so on. Zaful uses this information to process your orders and to communicate with you about the status of your membership, orders, and other transactions with Zaful.

Zaful’s server stores some of these information so that placing future orders will be quicker and easier. BUT, it should be emphasized that Zaful will not sell, rent or disclose your information to any third parties.

If you have provide the requested documents to verify your payment, Zaful will delete all the documents immediately after finishing the payment verification. The goal of payment verification is to make sure all transactions are authorized by the payment account holder, NOT gathering customers’ information. Zaful guarantees that your documents WILL NOT BE STORED, SOLD, RENTED OR DISCLOSED TO ANY THIRD PARTIES.

4.Paypal Never Insist Me to Verify My Paypal Account, Why Zaful Insist Me to Do That?

At this time Paypal may not insist you that verify your account. However, if one day there is refund on your Paypal account, or request that an order be shipped to another address, you may have a Paypal inquiry. To avoid these trouble, Zaful kindly ask you to verify your Paypal account.

It’s quiet normal that customers complaint that a online store is a scam as they are unable to touch the real items when they decide to buy, let alone a online store from another country. But before consider Zaful as a scam, please kindly check the safety of Zaful online payment, the privacy policy, shipping, return policy and so on. And you will find that Zaful is a safe and legit online store, not a scam. It is quiet different from what the rumors has said.

Beware that a scam website will do nothing for you. Zaful ensures the payment security and keep the information privacy for you. More information about this debate will be posted on this website.
