Althea Korea will finally be launched here in the Philippines on February 15, 2016 and they will be having a big giveaway as part of their grand opening! Read on to know more :)
My Shopping experience at Althea
I was one of the chosen lucky ones to be a beta user of the online shop (yey!). There are so many items to choose from at such reasonable prices. I was tempted to buy them all, haha! Aside from the affordable prices, the site is very user-friendly. Just navigate the site to see what I mean :)
To give you an idea, here are several screenshots of the shopping site’s interface:
Paying for items is easy! There are two payment options. 1) Via Paypal account, or 2) Via Credit Card. Either option you choose, it will redirect you to a Paypal gateway.
It was the night of January 21, Thursday, when I shopped at Althea Korea. My pink box arrived on the morning of January 30, Saturday, after Althea’s rider texted me that he’s on his way to deliver it.
It took almost ten (10) days from date of purchase to date of delivery — a little longer compared to just purchasing the items straight from the stores here in the Philippines (well, the items came from Korea. The package went through several inspections in Customs before it reached my doorstep). But I still prefer to repurchase from Althea Korea because of the following reasons:
- prices are competitive
- free shipping for a single receipt purchase of more than Php1,500
- the products are authentic. If you can prove that it’s not, you can refund 200% of the purchase value.
- there’s a 30-day unconditional returns policy
- no hassle, no worries. Just order and wait for your package to arrive.
