We fashion conscious women know; buying a new handbag isn’t easy. Choosing the right one involves so many things. The perfect bag needs to be elegant, trendy, versatile, comfy, spacious and robust. And if it comes with a famous brand name on it and at an affordable price then this is everything we ever dreamed of. Of course, we can’t always get everything we want so we need to compromise and the most reasonable option seems to be a replica purse. This choice offers us all the above mentioned requirements except the brand authenticity. Bottom line, as long as the price is right we can ignore this minor detail and settle with everything else that matters.
Spothandbags.co.uk has spotted a new way of indulging our passion for beautiful designer handbags and this is by providing good quality replicas at a price that we too can afford. On its website we find everything we could possibly want from a fashionable purse and the collection is impressively diversified. Still, before going through with our purchase we need to make sure that this merchant is trustworthy and reliable.
Judging by its aesthetics, the company is your average replica handbags site. The homepage is so and so. Not too bad and not to great either. It has an elegant white, black and gray color scheme. The usability is enhanced by a simplistic layout with two menu bars (one at the top with the popular brands and one in the left side for all the available brands), a medium size banner in the center of the screen and many sponsored products in the lower part of the page. You have all the information handy, visible right from the first moment you access the site. The only thing is that the page tends to look a little bit dull.
Spothandbags.co.uk carries a very large selection of designer replicas. The names vary from Louis Vuitton and Hermes to YSL and Alexander Wang. La Crème de la crème is here, everything you could possibly desire for your look. And every brand includes a couple hundred products. Every single one of these categories is organized into sub-collections to make browsing a lot easier for us. The thing is that the website doesn’t carry just purses. It also has backpacks, belts and wallets to offer an even broader solution for your style needs. Unfortunately there is no advanced search option to filter the items by price, materials, colors or shape.
The website displays its prices in GBP and from what I can tell these are pretty affordable. The prices seem to reflect the size of the products rather than the qualitative and aesthetic qualities. The smaller purses cost less than 100 GBP while the larger ones are between 100 GBP and 200 GBP. Even though some are made from canvas and some from leather, I couldn’t see a notable difference as far as the prices go. Only the travel bags are pricier. These cost about 250-300 GBP.
The main problem is with the pictures of the products. These seem to be taken in many different places and not in a studio. Obviously, no professional photographer was assigned to take them. Some replica bags were photographed on an outdoor coffee table, some on sofas, carpets, chairs and just a few of them in a white studio background. It goes without saying that this merchant doesn’t use its own pictures, but images copied from several different sources. The problem is that this means what we see isn’t what we will actually get.
To see if the quality of these replica handbags is what it should be I thought about comparing the pictures of the clones with the ones of the original purses. As I was saying above the pictures do not seem to be of their actual bags and I was right. When comparing the Louis Vuitton Monogram Vernis Brea GM in cream color replica with the authentic item I discovered that Spothandbags.co.uk uses the original images, copied from the LV website. Once again, this raises the serious question if when you order something here you are actually going to receive it as seen in the pictures.
This company is able to accept only credit card payments. There are no alternative payment options available. Only Visa, Mastercard and JCB are supported on the site. I agree that card payment is the most secure option for buying products over the Internet, but sometimes it is really great to know that the company is liable enough to offer other payment choices like Bank Wire, Western Union or Money Gram.
Of course, like any other self-respecting company, Spothandbags.co.uk ships packages worldwide and the shipping is completely free. This is really great as most of us are looking for free delivery when buying replicas online. The only thing is that the free shipping is by regular mail and it is really slow. It takes about 14 business days to receive your package. The alternative is to choose to pay for a faster option like Fedex and get it in about 3-5 business days.
This online store offers two options in case you are not satisfied with the replica handbags. The first one is to send the products back for a full refund, but no later than 7 days from delivery and the second one is to opt for an exchange, and ship it within 14 days from the delivery. Of course, no matter what you choose it is important to contact customer service at once and express your desire of returning the goods so they can provide you with the shipping details. Please note that all return expenses need to be paid by the customer.
This website doesn’t actually have customer support. Even though it has a Live Chat button on the homepage, it does not work. It is there only for a dramatically effect. When you click it you are taken to the Contact Us page where you find out that the only option to contact the company is by using a Contac Form. There is no phone number displayed and certainly no email address. This shows how unprofessional the merchant really is and that you can’t rely on him for solving any problems that you may experience during your shopping experience or after receiving the products.
Spothandbags.co.uk is a replica handbags online store that looks fairly decent and reputable, but disappoints at a second glance. This site may look good, have a very large selection of replica handbags at very affordable prices, free delivery and a 7 days return policy but it fails when it comes to offering good quality pictures of its own merchandise, responsive customer services and diversified payment options. Nevertheless, trusting it with your hard earned money is something that only you can decide.
