Acting upon the promise I made in my post about ecommerce sites in India, I shopped for some stuff from myntra.com and shared my myntra.com shopping haul and review on my youtube channel.
Myntra.com is an online shopping fashion website/mobile app that deals with men’s and women’s clothing and accessories. The site has a wide range of clothes available at affordable prices. The website started a few years back, was then bought by the Indian E-commerce giant Flipkart.com and is now only a mobile app i.e. it is available only on mobile (which is a thing I dislike or maybe I just dislike my phone).
Myntra.com Shopping Haul
In case, you’e really not interested in listening to my usual blabber, here’s the youtube video.
What I bought was a combination of men’s and women’s clothing. This is what I bought:
1. Pink top from The Vanca For Rs. 489/-
2. Blue top from Q & A For Rs. 499/-
3. 2 women’s t-shirts from the Quotient Rs. 199/-
4. 1 t-shirt from Flying Machine
5. 1 Men’s Shirt from Flying Machine
6. 1 Elle 18 Lipstick
7. 1 pair of flats from Lovely chick
Experience while ordering and Shipping
Though my previous shopping experiences have been through their website but this time I was forced to shop through the app. The interface of the app is quite good and ‘refine’ and ‘sort’ features available on the app make it easier to shop.
Also, I loved the sizing help section. It has been created really nicely and it is easy to understand. Also, they allow huge discounts even without using coupons. You can also use myntra.com coupons to avail extra discounts.
I received the products within 2 days after I placed my order. But it took a little long for the lipstick to arrive (4 days). The products were sent in pretty good packaging. All the clothes except the shirt from Flying Machine were in a normal plastic wrap covered by myntra.com wrapper. The shirt came in a box which is pretty good for the collars would have got ruined without the box. The Shoes also came in a box and so did the lipstick. Lipstick was put in a plastic box and then covered with a cardboard box. That was too much of packing for the lipstick but yeah! lipstick still got ruined because of summer. I hope I will be able to use it after I put it in refrigerator for a while.
I didn’t get any call about the arrival of my shipment. So, yeah! the delivery guy basically just popped up at my door and surprised me with the delivery. I don’t like it. What if there wasn’t anyone to receive the order? They must call before they come to deliver. They do send messages about the delivery updates for example, they messaged me today that the shipment (containing lipstick) would be delivered today.
Quality of the products
Clothes were of really good quality. All of them. Good fabric, the same design I saw… it was perfect. You can’t explain more after you have used the word ‘perfect’. Right?
The shoes turned out to be bad. Like really bad. The buckle was off within an hour… I put on the shoes, move out and walk around a bit and then I see that one buckle is gone. It was glued to the shoe with cheap quality glue which came off really easily.
Overall experience and return policy
I used the return policy for the men’s shirt. Got the wrong size first time, filed for a return and got the refund and reordered again. I loved that. All I had to do was apply for return and hand over the courier to the courier guy at my own doorstep and that’s it. It was done. Cool!
I have had a pretty good experience with myntra.com. Easy to use app, easy shopping, good interface, quick and proper shipping, good quality products and great range of products. It is all perfect. No doubt Myntra.com is so popular in India. It deserves to be.
