We are merchants and sell on wish.com. we sell good products, but unfortunately, from the third month of selling on this platform, the site became full of scammers ("buyers") who receive the product and ask for a refund ilegitimately.

Wish freezes the money and tell the merchant that the money was refunded. we as merchants cannot dispute or appeal the decision, and no real person will contact us ever. we send several emails with no reply. there is no way to recover our money. cheaters can easily say "the product is bad" and wish immediately refunds (or at least they say so).

3 times in 1 month we were victims of scammers who got free stuff from us. today it was the fouth!. the easiness to cheat is so amazing, that I think that maybe wish scams also the buyers, they don't pay back the refund, and they don't pay the goods to the merchants either. please do not buy or sell on wish.com!!! be careful!!!

If you are a merchant, better look after another selling platform, or after a few months of good selling, you will start losing money and effort. if the platform cannot provide full assistance with real people, if they cannot answer an email, if they don't let you dispute a claim and let you negotiate directly with a buyer that may have a problem with your products, then don't trust it!! it may be a scam!!

Wish.com is by far the biggest disappointment iv ever had deal with before. Iv had the worst experience and I am livid to say the least. I tried to load my details onto the wish application because I wanted to purchase afew items.. It said " card declined" about a half hour later I received a bank notification about almost R300 (R271 to be exact) has been deducted from my account by "context logic" totally freaking out I get on the fraud line with my bank and they tell me this was a online purchase.. I then explain that the application declined my card so how could money have been withdrawn. I contact wish support and explain what happened to one of their agents by the name of Amber. This girl was cocky and bursting with attitude ..telling me for a lack of better words that I'm lieing they didn't deduct money! I then sent her a screen shot of the bank notification and she tells me PayPal will refund me within 2 days. After 2 days I contact support again and spoke to another agent who now has decided to ignore me. It's been two weeks and no response. I have absolutely no reason to go through all this effort for a "freebie" and iv got all the emails and screenshots as evidence. These people are CROOKS AND THEY MAKE UNAUTHORIZED DEDUCTIONS FROM YOUR BANK ACCOUNT !! I WILL BE PUTTING THIS ALL OVER SOCIAL MEDIA BECAUSE NOBODY HAS THE RIGHT TO TAKE YOUR MONEY WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION. ITS DISGUSTING HOW THEY OPPORATE. I'm not going to throw my hands up in the air and leave it like this.. If anyone can get back to me on this .. I urge you to do so because iv got paper trail on the above mentioned!

We have had exactly the same issue with Wish.com. We tested the marketplace for about 21 days and did $1500 worth of sales. We were debited (without our authorization) $352 worth of refunds. A whopping 23% refund rate. Six orders were refunded unilaterally by the "customer service team". As a 3rd party seller do not list on Wish.com as you will definitely not make money. We pulled all our listings from the site today.

Bonjour a tous, J'ai été moi aussi vendeuse sur WISH, moralité, j'ai perdu plus de 1300 euros. Soit disant des clients qui n'ont jamais recu leur commandes. Non seulement les clients ont recu leurs produits mais en plus ils ont été remboursés. Et pourtant, j'ai moi aussi fourni des preuves de mes envois. Wish m'a répondu que je n'avais choisi un de leurs transporteurs alors que mon envoi n'était pas valable. J'ai envoyé mes articles en mode so COLISSIMO en fournissant achaque le numéro de suivi des envois. Mais WISH exigait le tracking de l'URL. En France, la Poste Francaise ne fournit pas le tracking de l'envoi. Il faut aller sur le site Colissimo.fr et taper le numéro du colis. Je leur ai expliqué de long en large comment cela se passait. Rien a faire, ils n'ont rien voulu savoir et m'ont retenu le montant de mes ventes>. Ce sont de véritables escrocs qui arnaquent les vendeurs européens. Ils ne répondent jamais. Wish est a proscrire pour tous les vendeurs européens. Je suis tres en colére et dégoutée. J'aimerai tout simplement que WISH disparaisse mais cela semble bien difficile. Je hais ce site au plus haut point !!! GROSSE ARNAQUE !! Ils devraient eller en prison pour fraude. Melle Sylvie KORENFELD, Boutique frenchymarket.com.

As a buyer, I agree that it's extremely easy to get a refund and keep the product. I've never scammed a seller on wish, but my first time shopping on wish I was amazed at how easy it was to request a refund. I ordered some markers that had completely different colors as advertised (some were the same shade and half of them were grays), the zipper on the bag came right off, and it was a different brand than advertised. All I had to do was send a picture to them and my money was back in about a few hours to a day. Also, I recently saw a listing that showed 168 markers for sell for 2 dollars, but what the seller failed to mention was that it was only 1 marker per order (I read the reviews). Basically my point is, while the refund system does screw over genuine sellers, I think it's the only solution Wish has been able to come up with for complete buyer satisfaction and avoid faulty sellers like those.

I completely agree with that. I was a seller on WISH the kept my money about 2000 euros, never refund me. My last orders were before noivember and I have never been paid. WISH= BEGGAR.
My shop frenchy marlet is located in France and we are telling the french and american and chinese justice so that wish pays its sellers. Melle Sylvie KORENFELD. Regards from France.
