Whenever a platform is successful, there are usually others willing to enter the competition.
Alibaba didn’t want to be left behind and, in the face of Shein’s success, created allyLikes, an online store incredibly similar to Shein, which ships worldwide.
In this article, we’ll tell you about the promising features of this new online shopping platform.
Highlights of allyLikes
Below we’ll tell you the reasons why allyLikes is stepping up to become one of the main competitors of other online stores.
Wide variety of fashionable clothing
The allyLikes catalog is similar to Shein’s, and it’s full of the latest trends and copies of famous brands.
Every week, the allyLikes catalog gets bigger, as more dresses, shoes, coats, and other articles are added, and within which you’ll probably find something you like.
allyLikes presents itself, just like Shein, as a fast-fashion brand. In addition to the incredibly low prices, there is also the possibility to get discounts and coupons.
If you want to get a €3 discount for being a new user, just register here.
You will find more benefits on the allyLikes homepage.
The quality of allyLikes clothing is excellent and resembles the clothes sold by Inditex or Shein.
Despite being a fast-fashion store, the coats and pants will last a long time if you take good care of them, which shows the product’s good quality.
Some items, such as T-shirts, may last less with washing, but this is the same as you’d get when buying them in a physical store.
Cheap or free shipping
If you buy from allyLikes, you’ll be eligible for free shipping starting at €19. This is a good way to compete with Shein, where shipping is free from €29.
With this low amount, you wouldn’t have that much trouble reaching it and enjoying free shipping.
The shipping delay for allyLikes in Europe is usually 10 to 15 business days.
Since the clothes are shipped from China, this is an acceptable and even fast period of time. However, you should keep in mind that buying from online stores with shipping from China will not be a good option if you need to buy something urgent.
Warranty and Buyer Protection
allyLikes stands behind your purchases, and you can have extra protection by using PayPal as your payment method.
If the order arrives incorrectly or damaged, you can return it free of charge within 30 days of receipt, as long as the product is unused and in its original packaging.
For hygienic reasons, we do not accept returns of underwear, pajamas, or swimsuits.
How to return an order?
Log in to your account and go to “My Orders” (on this link). You’ll need to click on “Return” under the item in question and fill out the form with the reasons why you want to return the product.
We suggest that you give lots of details and make your email address available, to make the process as quick as possible.
allyLikes will take about 5 days to process the return, and you’ll receive your money 7 days after the package has arrived.
Variety of payment methods
In addition to PayPal payment, which ensures security and transparency in the purchase, allyLikes supports Visa, Mastercard, Maestro, and JCB payments.
Aspects to improve
Due to its recent incorporation into the market, allyLikes still has some points to improve.
Free returns in all cases
As we’ve mentioned, allyLikes will take care of the return if it’s due to an error in shipping or product. But if it’s because you’re not satisfied with your products, those expenses will be on your account.
To us, it seems like a good way to attract users, and a point to improve that this return is free in all cases.
Allow size exchange
If you get the wrong size, you must return the product and buy it again in the correct size.
Even so, if the measurements of the product you bought don’t correspond to the size chart indicated on the page, you can ask for a free return.
You just have to attach pictures of the size chart as proof, and photos with the measurements of your products.
The standard shipping of €4.99 for shipments under €19 is a little high if we compare it with the total amount of the purchase.
Due to its recent appearance on the market, allyLikes does not yet have a section for large sizes, men, or children.
It’ll be a matter of waiting for it to expand its catalog over time.
You can contact the allyLikes customer support center at this link, and you will receive a response within 24 hours (excluding weekends).
For faster service, it’d be nice if the site had a live chat or a chatbot to solve the most frequent doubts, but you can find some of them here.
