In the details of various products, some scorching comments about missing components, long delivery times, as well as a poor processing find until down to the complete not functioning.

For rewards, you can go as a customer on www.wish.com/gift-cards and check in there, what rewards for you are available. Rewards are not permanently, but expire according to provider already after a few days.

Conclusion

So far, the provider looks quite serious. The FAQs provide all important answers to questions. It should be noted that geek/wish provides only the sales area for products of different suppliers. Thus, enormous differences in the quality of the goods, costs and delivery can not be excluded. The presentation of the service of platform is okay, but more like the a junk dealer.

Unfortunately, often cheap and non-functioning products are represented by third-party, which in turn move the platform in a bad light and are a clear no-go. Nevertheless, the run on the products seems to be unbroken since the price for some buyers seems to play a greater role, as the quality.

Also, why do the provider only more or less holds two same apps with different names but with the same functionality turns me personally. Possibly this is to believe a kind of dummy competition the customers. The only difference I could find so far was that on geek more gadgets and wish more clothes – but not exclusively – be presented.
