This is the 2nd part of my Gmarket Shopping guide, you might want to read the first part here.

Gmarket Korea Shopping

When you search an item, you will see the listing page as shown above. First, click on the “Customer Rating” on the right top to sort according to “High Rating”. Sellers with Power rating are those who earned higher customer satisfaction rating. Once you click to browse the page, under the seller info, if there is a tag states “CS BEST”, that will be even better as the shop has high sale performance on top of the customer satisfaction score. I will try to buy from those which has “CS BEST” tag.

Next you might want to take note of the small blue plane icon next to the product image. This indicates shops that provide international shipping, those without can only be shipped locally in Korea.

Gmarket Korea online shopping, another eBay shopping platform, well, I know, I heard of it for a long time but never bother to try on it. The reason, not a fan of eBay kind of shopping platform and yes, I never shop at eBay before ๐Ÿ˜ฏ . But what tempted me to try on Gmarket Korea is the Korean skincare and cosmetic products.

I have been trying out various Korean skincare and cosmetic products by buying them via Taiwan online shop. You heard me right, from Taiwan. At that time I was not aware that I should have shopped directly from Gmarket Korea. So by paying quite some extra costs to get Korean products outside Korea, oh my gosh! :roll:

Finally after I have made my first purchase on Gmarket, I decided to write this guide, although not a comprehensive one(there are already many guides out there) but it will still be a lengthy article and therefore I will have to split it into 2 parts. Hope this will help those who are like me, heard of Gmarket million times but couldn’t be bother to look at it or try on it. But please, don’t blame me when you are hooked on it later, deal?

All reviews written here are based on my personal experiences during the whole shopping process till I received my items. I am not in any case affiliate to any of the sites below. If you have your own shopping experience, feel free to drop a few lines of comments here.

I have stop writting about online shopping reviews for quite a while and decided to resume it again. The third review is on Bebe.com. I started to shop at Bebe only from Jan 2011 and this is my 4th purchase. I will be adding some pros and cons in the review from now on..

Shipping: Although Bebe offers direct shipping back to Singapore and I found that it is much cheaper to ship via VPOST. It takes about 5 days with Bebe Standard shipping to arrive at my Vpost USA and another 5 to 7 days for Vpost to deliver to me.

Quality of clothing: Overall, Bebe clothing is good in quality. I have ordered some of their signature logo T-shirts and they are sparkling gorgeous. However the white color logo shirts is too sheer to my liking. If the fabric can be made slightly thicker and it will be perfect.

My most recent purchase include a nice black lace top as shown below, the quality of the fabric is pretty good.

The second review is on Victoria’s Secret. I shopped less frequent at VS but started my first purchase on Aug 2008. The reason is simply they don’t add in new stock frequently as compared to RalphLauren.com.

Shipping: VS provide direct shipping back to Singapore and I find that it is much cheaper to ship direct rather than using a 3rd party shipping like VPOST.
Initially the items took more than 2 weeks to reach me but over the time, the shipping improved and took about 10 days.

Quality of clothing: Sweaters are pretty good in material wise and I really love their styles especially the sweaterdresses. I simply can’t resist my temptation and have recently bought this dress(see picture below) even though I might not be able to wear it now in my humid and warm country.
