A lot of us know that online stores can’t always be trusted about the products they are trying to sell. The photos on the site often look impressive but many online buyers will tell you that they have been duped at least once, with the actual product not looking anywhere as lovely as the ad photo.
While browsing for gowns on AliExpress, a Chinese company owned by Alibaba, Andreea Patriche found a lovely bejeweled backless chiffon dress that came in several color options. The gown looked stunning on the ad, but she knew the actual item might not come even close.
So, Patriche messaged the seller to ask for actual photos of the dress.
She probably expected the seller to send photos of the dressed laid down on the table or even worn by a mannequin, but the Chinese store owner had a brilliant idea. He wore the dresses himself and posed for the photos. Surely, this would be the best ‘actual photos’ of the dress, right?
“I found a shop that sold prom dresses and wedding dresses so I asked for real photos rather than stock photos and the seller sent me these of him trying them on,” Patriche shared.
The dresses actually looked great and appeared to have the jewels and beads on the cloth, but netizens had more fun at the fact that this seller went beyond the usual approachto provide his customer real photos of the dress.
“If I was in need of a dress right now, I would buy from him. That type of service is worth paying more for,” one netizen commented.
Others think Patriche is now obligated to at least buy one of the dresses.
“I think you’re obligated to buy at least one of them now,” one netizen wrote.
“Pre-worn by a real life princess to boot,” another netizen chimed in. LOL
Still, this was impressive, right? Excellent customer service.
