Is Metrodeal Selling Fake Longchamp Bags?

[UPDATE: November 26, 2013]
I have been informed by Google that Metrodeal is going to take matters to court because of this post being a copy and paste of a case study they had in June 2012. I have republished this post because I can say with 100% certitude that this post is all mine and was written in May 2013 after I had bought a Longchamp Le Pliage bag from Metrodeal. I'll be updating this post as things progress.

[UPDATE]
This post has been taken down due to a DMCA request, the exact nature of which is yet unknown. I have filed a counter complaint, with the hopes that I will be able to reinstate the original content as I am 100% sure that it is all my creation, with no copyright infringement having been made.

Please bear with me as I wait for Google to sort things out. In the meantime, comments and feedback are still welcome![UPDATE]
=====

Some women have this thing for shoes. While I don't get that - give me my trusty Ipanemas any day - I do understand the concept of having a fixation. I do have a similar thing for bags.

That being said, I have never been able to make myself shell out tens of thousands for a designer bag. Not that I could afford to, anyway. I think that even PHP6000 for a bag is too much for me!

So when Metrodeal started advertising the Longchamp Le Pliage for half the price, I was totally interested. While the bag is nothing more than a glorified shopping bag, if you think about it, I just had (have) this idea in my head that it's the perfect everyday, throw it all in bag.

Being the penny pincher that I am (when it suits me, at least), it took me a while to actually make the purchase; but it did happen. And about a month later, I received the Longchamp bag at my doorstep. For less than half its original price.

Happy shopping ending, right? Thank God for daily deals sites like Metrodeal, which empower average consumers to purchase items that would normally be out of there range.

Trust me, I wish the story had ended right there.

Seeds of doubt

From the get go, I had no thoughts about possibly receiving a fake item. I was, after all, dealing with a big name, and supposedly a reputable one. There was no reason to doubt. 

So when the bag finally arrived - shipping didn't start till about a month after the deal was published - I was just happy to have another bag. 

Then a friend took a look. The initial reaction was rather emphatic, along the lines of "I'm not sure that's how an authentic Longchamp looks and feels."

Understandably, I didn't want to pay attention to such sentiments, but the seeds of doubt were sown.

"Unignorable" signs

As it is with many seeds, they tend to be forgotten. Until they start showing signs of growth. In this case, a mere 3 weeks (more or less) was all it took.

I was out with a friend when I noticed that the handle of my bag was damaged. The 'leather' handle had parts where the 'leather' was worn off. Not a mere scuff mark, mind you. Take a look for yourself.
Damaged Longchamp Le Pliage handle
So what do you think of that? I really don't think a brand such as Longchamp would make inferior products so much so that the handle would be like that after less than a month's use. Unless my sweat is ultra-acidic that it kills leather goods. (Totally not impossible, but even my bags brought from Greenhills don't break down this easily!)

Last weekend, I met up with friends, one of whom had a Longchamp Le Pliage bag as well. It was a smaller size and had the short handle, but we compared our bags anyway.

I suppose the pictures could be better, but the materials felt and looked different upon close inspection.


The two Longchamp bags look the same at first glance, but the plastic material feels different - the brown bag feels slightly coarser, more durable. The stitches are finer on it as well. The major difference lies in the leather parts. 


Here are the two flaps.

Spot the difference?

Doing something about it

Prior to meeting up with friends and comparing those two Longchamp bags, I already wanted to write something about the situation, with the hopes that I might connect with others who have bought the same deal via Metrodeal and who might possibly have the same doubts as to the authenticity of the bag. However, via a friend, my concern was brought to the attention of the no less than the founder of Metrodeal.

To be honest, I didn't have high hopes of someone actually admitting that the bag I got was fake; still, it was worth a shot. As you are reading now, though, things didn't go quite as I hoped.

Total disclosure: I was offered a refund as an in-store credit. I suppose that that is something, BUT a refund is not really what I want. What I want to know is whether or not the Longchamp bags sold on Metrodeal are the real deal or knock offs. The statement I was given was along the lines that "no such complaints have been filed". Obviously, I didn't get a confirmation as to the authenticity of the bag.

Don't get me wrong - it doesn't take a rocket scientist to deduce that I do buy "overruns". Greenhills, yes? But I do that with eyes wide open, and not expecting the real deal.

The Metrodeal Longchamp bag story is something else altogether. I bought into the deal thinking that I was getting an authentic bag. Since I am no expert, I had no idea that the authenticity of the bag was (is) dubious.

Now think about it...

How many other unsuspecting consumers have experienced what I have? Looking at this deal - screencap taken a few seconds ago - it is not ongoing anymore, but they have sold 564 Longchamp bags. 564 individuals who may have been duped. And they're open for preorders!


What now?

My goal is not to get monetary compensation or anything like that out of this. In case you missed my disclosure above, I have been offered an in-store refund, which is not totally unappreciated. 

However, I do want answers. I want to know that I can trust daily deals sites to deliver on the promises expressed in their not-always-brilliantly written copy. I want to know if there are other consumers out there - one of the 564 who bought that deal like me - who have had a similar experience.

If you've read up to this point, do you mind helping me out? Can you share this post and help me get to the bottom of this? If you have had the same experience with Metrodeal Longchamp bags, or you know of someone, please leave me a note in the comments, and I'll get in touch.

Salamat.

  1. My wife and I buy longchamp bags in Paris (which is the place where these bags are supposed to be cheapest in the world). I have never seen these bags reach a price of P3000 below (after converting). And I don't think anyone would be selling items below cost... so I am not sure that these bags are original based on pricing...

    ReplyDelete
  2. Here in Vienna, the original costs €70.00 (Php 3850.00) if it's ON SALE. I bought a copy in Istanbul (I was aware it's not an original) for €10.00 (Php550.00). After a few weeks, the handle fell off. :-(
    But I was not expecting much for the price.

  4. Hi!Thanks for the info. I just want to share my experience also with metrodeal. I recently bought a Tory Burch bag. Same thing happened to me. it's fake. and it is so obvious. the straps were not stitched together. so i complained regarding this issue. they replaced my bag but still the item was fake. made in china and the strap is still the same and is not even glued properly. the reply by their support team is this.

    Thanks for getting in touch again with us, MetroDeal is just a website where merchants can put up deals. Rest assured that products that they've post are authentic. If you have any question about authenticity you may directly contact the merchant for further assistance. We will inform them also regarding this so they could expedite the resolution of your concern. Rest assured you'll be receiving a communication from them.
    Kindly contact therefore the seller merchant of this deal to inquire about any requests you may have with regards to this deal.
    Thank you very much for your cooperation.


    i wish i can post the photos.

  5. i own lots of Longchamp.. one was given to me as a gift and it was bought in Paris. the rest i bought online from Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus.
    i hate fakes.. so when i chance upon this MetroDeal promo for P2599, i thought of buy 1 and have my relative in Manila claim for it. But when i looked at the picture, Man!! it's so fake!! if you look closely at the picture, the flap looks smooth. it shouldn't be. you should see the mini diamond engraved pattern (i dont know how you call it)...

  9. "Omg! just purchsed one via credit card today! how do i cancel my order? worst i used my hubby's credit card. :( @dreamwalker how can i contact you?" -> I'm sorry, but I don't know the cancellation procedure. It's probably best if you get in touch with their support team.

  11. Metrodeal should make a better effort of ensuring the authenticity and accuracy of the stuff they are selling / posting. They are the ones posting the ads and then they just point fingers at the merchant and say, ask them? If you buy stuff from a department store, do you complain directly to the supplier? There are so many complaints already that they are selling fake bags, but they still continue selling. Seems very unethical. I would try to get a refund, if you still can.

  12. Hello mam if its not too much can I have more photos of that bag you bought? I also bought one. I just recieved it now and it looks so real from the how do I spot a fake longchamp I see online most of the info shows the bag I recieved now is real but I still doubt it. I want to check if my bag is the same as yours I have processed a cancelation already and I was surprised to see I have a delivery... I hope I can get a feedback. Thank you so much...

  13. Hi Stephanie,

    I honestly don't know if they're selling fake bags, but maybe you can take a closer look at the photos in the posts to compare. If you don't want it anymore, I think they give refunds? Good luck!

  17. An incredibly unique idea is to acquire longchamp bag that has photographs printed in it. There are many longchamp websites that this, and Snaptotes puts together many of the highest quality versions. They have a wide selection of longchamp bag styles and forms available.

  18. i just got my delivery from QWT trading yesterday. i actually have an original long champ le pliage bag and tried to compare the two, actually all the details you want to see from the original to QWT bag are there, except that you'll be doubting in terms of the leather, zipper, its gold plating and the smoothness of the plating made, and it is just packed in a a clear plastic bag and the paper bag i think is not an original long chmap paper bag. even the card, is different,its like its just copied, the size is not the same as what the original has, damn!metro deal, i think its just a class a bag, so please take note of it!

  21. Hi dreamwalker...thanks for your feedback. I have been thinking for months now to buy or not to buy this longchamp offer by metrodeal...i have been tempted to purchase today since its price had gone lower to PhP 2345, but have been doubting its authenticity. I decided to check if there had been posts about this, until i found yours....i've decided not to purchase anymore...thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  22. i sent an email complain today to QWT trading about the bag i received, doubting if they will reply. yes, saw the latest ad and now around hundreds bought this bag again... try to calculate how much they earn and pity those who just want to have a genuine bag... 2,345 is not so easy to earn nowadays... its just a mindset that your bag is authentic, but its actually not, unless you know how to spot a fake from a genuine one. I actually read a blog that others do sell long champ bags for a cheaper price because these bags are the QA rejected bags from the factory, but still, you can know the big difference of a real long champ le pliage bag from a replica one. lesson learned

  23. Perhaps you should copy Metrodeal in the email, too? Even if they don't reply, at least it's on the record.

  24. Hi! You may use this link for your peace of mind. It's easy enough to follow.

    http://www.ebay.com/gds/How-to-Spot-Fake-Longchamp-quot-Les-Pliages-quot/10000000006532305/g.html

    Basically, look at the zipper, the leather flap, the logo, the snap, the size (I've noticed that replicas have never gotten the sizes right). ;)

    It is possible to buy authentic longchamp in the 2500-3000 peso range. These bags are from China (not Paris), but they are authentic. Meron din kasing factory ang longchamp sa China (and I think Vietnam). Yun nga lang, di ko alam kung mga rejects yun at di pumasa sa quality inspection o di kaya smuggled kaya mura. :)

  27. Thank you so much for your post! I've been thinking of buying a Longchamp and Tory Burch from Metro Deal for quite a while, and decided to do it now. Before I did, I thought of doing a little research first since I also have doubts and came across your blog. Buti na lang! I have doubts din kasi nga the offer is too good to be true. And another thing, I've read the details many times but I can't find the word "original" or "authentic" anywhere. For Longchamp, at best it has "genuine" but then it refers to the brand not the actual products they're selling. Thank goodness talaga I came across your blog, you saved me big time! :)

  29. Hi just bought a longchamp bag on an on line store (bag r us II) in fb and got the bag the next day but upon closer inspection and comparing it with my longchamp which i bought in duty free i have this inkling that it is fake so the next day i went to Rustan's and ask them to help me validate the authenticity of the bag and they told me that they are 100% sure that the bag is fake. I texted the seller and was told to return the item for them to inspect and refund the payment. It is one form of misrepresentation/fraud to claim that they are selling authentic when in fact it is not.

  32. I ordered bag from metrodeal. MJQ, QWT and to other merchant of metrodeal...merchant is honest enough to tell that their stuff are coming from the factory in china. so what's the big deal? they are not selling it like the "mall" price. let's face it guys, we all want branded stuff right? even if these items are from the bazaar of what so ever, if you really really want to be sure that you will get an authentic stuff, better go to the shopping malls were you can find the authorized outlet. online shopping is definitely not for those people pretending that they don't know that these stuffs are just overruns or should I say over production...

  35. When Metrodeal was offering the Longchamp bags for less than the price from Rustans I thought of buying one, in fact I already ordered and asked my husband for money to be deposited. However, as I was thinking about it further di ko na lang tinuloy yung pagbabayad sa bank kase naisip ko lang na its dangerous to buy deals online which my husband always say. The price of the longchamp bag Metrodeal is giving definitely is a steal for most of us but if your going to think about it, we are not really sure if its authentic or fake and yet we will be paying thousands, di man yan 7k just like in Rustans still money is so hard to earn nowadays. Mag greenhills ka na lang or buy from someone that you really know. Whether replica or not, they should be telling the truth behind what they are selling. Or better yet, save money for the real and authentic bag and buy na lang from Rustans or some reputable stores that distributes these bags...thats if you really want to be secure in terms of what your purchasing. :)

  36. Dont get me wrong, I dont know who Dreamwalker is but let me just remind everyone that reads blogs from the internet what blog means (according to my own understanding) Blogs are there to make people aware of whats happening. True or not, mapanira o hindi. Most of the bloggers intentions are to show other people the truth and their personal experiences where others may associate their own dealings with similar issues. Dreamwalker is just simply asking and authenticating his/her experience. It should not be whether he/she is destroying someone/somebodys reputation.
    Lets just be open minded when reading blogs, if you dont like what your reading, its best to investigate further, malay mo tama nga siya, then it saves us from making a big mistake ;D JUST SAYING

  38. Sharing my experience , I bought a Troy burch bag from metrodeal at P7499, from the same supplier QWT trading. When I got the item, it was a fake tory burch. I complaint about it, and asked for refund. Nag refund naman sila. Since base in province ako, I asked if shoulder nila ang shipping fee, and they didn't react about it. So I guess kasama ang shipping fee, and they return 8k. So clearly, I thought shoulder nila ang shipping fee. Isip ko pa nga eh, wow! Ang bait naman, very responsible. But after a month, there, nag email c qwt trading, asking me tO return the 500 excess. And I said I thought it was included the shipping fee of 480 via LbC. And she was pissed, starting to be so rude, saying, kapal ko, abuloy nalang sakin un 500, blah blah....
    First time ko makaencounter ng ganun ka rude na supplier, parang Walang pinagaralan Lang mag salita.
    Lesson learned tlga, will never buy from metrodeal.

  39. First week of August I bought longchamp from Metrodeal (qwt trading). When I got it and checked it, the button and zipper are not the same color. The stitches inside the bag are not neatly done, madumi pagkakatahi. Because of these, I reported my complaint to metrodeal and they suggested REFUND if I have doubt with the authenticity of their product. I asked for refund, their bag is fake! September 17 na wala pa refund ko!

  41. hi. altho i am not a fan of longchamp bags, i have bought a number of lacoste bags (at least 5) fr megamall and gateway lacoste shops. and all of them are made in china. 2 yung nasira ung zipper few mos after my purchase. at isang bowling bag ung nag crack ung handle. recently, i purchased a small lacoste tote bag on line via CCP. meron konting peel sa handle few weeks after my purchase. which i also experienced dun sa iba kong bags purchased sa store nila kaya, i dont see the difference between buying on line and buying thru their authorized dealers. unless cguro u buy in europe/US. my husband who is a seaman would always tell me na although some bags in US/Europe are already made in china, they could have higher standard para makapasok ung product dun. just posting for information. thank u

  42. ako biktima sa mga lacoste na bags nila i will return it sana dapat may action tayo dito ipa media na natin ayaw talaga tanggapin ng metrodeal kasi authentic daw talaga ang bags nila. I planned na ipa media na natin ito kasi tayo tayo pa rin ang niloloko nang mga ito.

  43. totoo talaga METRODEAL is tolerating their merchants to sell fake bags esp lacoste bag. pa refund sana ako ngunit ayaw ng merchant kasi authentic daw talaga ang ibinibinta nila so i went to lacoste ayala cebu at doon confirmed talaga na FAKE so i informed metrodeal about it and took pictures from the shop para ma compare ko sa kanila. I even told them na hindi ko ituloy yong ibang hindi pa na deliver na bags but still pinadala nila sa akin. dapat tayong mga biktima saan tayo kukuha ng tulong dito. its not a small amount na binayad natin sa kanila.dapat parusahan sila.

My fear is that I won't get the bag since it states that delivery will start from 30 October to 14 November. It's already 12th and still no bag. I will be giving it as a gift too which makes me really sad if the bag that will come to me is fake. Lesson learned, do research before purchasing online.

  51. Re: MARDI GRAS

    I placed my order Monday last week. It should have arrived within 5 days or last Saturday. I called Metrodeal several tmes since Sarurday to know the cause of delay because Mardi Gras is not replying to my texts and emails. Metrodeal told me kanina na the boutique owner was on lunch break. What a freakingly annoying response. Please let us know how your visit to the boutique will go. As of now, I was advised by Metrodeal to call back at 3pm so I can talk to Yohann, their supervisor. I totally do not appreciate the lack of urgency and proper customer care.

    I am contemplating on seeking compensation for this inconvenience due to metrodeal and the boutique's negligence. The late delivery is a clear breach of the purchase agreement without clear and justifiable reason.

  54. Re: Mardi Gras

    I sent a demand letter to the boutique to deliver my item without prejudice to any legal action for damages should further delay incur.

    The boutique owner called me and said their products were held up at customs and would not be available for another week. And that the courier lost my item during transport. I asked for the courier details so I can verify the excuse. The next day they called me up and said they would deliver my item. How it was possible to deliver me an item all of a sudden, I don't know.

    I'm just glad that it is over. Disappointed though that i had to resort to legal threats to get my end of the bargain.

I was just wondering how were the people able to cancel their orders and had their refund? please help anyone. you may email me through beyondfashionph@gmail.com thanks!

  62. i called metrodeal and i asked them why are they tolerating this kind of sellers, with a fake address and phone number, never got a reply from them, only from email. i told them its fake, i even told them that i will report this to DTI, metrodeal said seldom lang daw ang ngrreklamonsa QWT trading, really? i said. myabe u wanna check sa online reviews, wala daw cla access, kaloka.. almost 2 weeks na still processing pa daw refund ko, grbe i will never buy sa metrodeal tlaga.

    ReplyDelete
  63. @cassey aiye, they ARE aware of online reviews. My latest update mentions DMCA takedown requests from them and "Case Studies" they have published online...I hope you get your refund!

    @beyondfashionph, sorry I am not associated with them; They do have CS so you can follow up with them, but I suggest having everything in writing so you have a record. There is also DTI to file complaints with if your refund request is not dealt with properly.

  70. Ohmygod I just bought an MK bag worth 8k from metrodeal and now i'm already starting to doubt its authenticity. I paid thru credit card also and i've been trying to call QWT Trading's phone number but they can't be reached!! :( :( i've been trying to call them for 3 days already to see if I could still a refund since my bank told me that they couldn't revoke my purchase if the merchant hasn't cancelled it yet. Any help? :(

  71. Thank you so much for writing this blog. You saved me and many others from making the mistake of buying a fake bag from Metrodeal.

    I've been tempted to buy a Longchamp or a Tory Burch bag from Metrodeal or CashCashPinoy for a couple of months already, but only decided to push through with it now, as my everyday bag was already worn out. But as I was about to place my order, I still found it too good to be true. I thought to myself, why do they have so much stock of these luxury bags at such a low price? That was what first made me doubt. Second, I tried asking for larger pictures of said bags (from another online store), and I got excuses as to why photos could not be sent (wherein I provided a solution for it, but then never got a response). Third, I actually found local wholesalers of Longchamp care cards and paper bags, which you can buy just by themselves without the bag! That was pretty shocking, and proves that a Longchamp bag that comes with a care card/paper bag means nothing/does not validate authenticity.

    I researched "how to spot fake Longchamp bags". Though the information was helpful, it didn't do much since Metrodeal only provided stock photos of the original products and not the actual product they are selling. And be warned: the fake bag sellers know this. They know what details to add to their item descriptions to pass off their bags as authentic, get photos that are shrunk down so you can't even see the details, etc.

    So I decided to search "are cheap Longchamp bags original?", and voila! I found this article.

    Please take note that, the fake bag sellers claiming their items are authentic, are not limited to MD and CCP. They are also scattered all over ebay.ph and sulit.com.ph.

    These bags may cost a fraction of the original's price, but we're still dealing with thousands of pesos here. For a bag whose true cost is probably only a couple hundred pesos because it is fake, this matters and this is clearly deception and false advertising.

    It is better to just buy an outright fake one (knowing it's fake) for the fake's price, than be deceived into buying a fake one posing as an original. And in the meantime, do not buy from these sites so you can just save the money you have to buy THE original, 100% authentic bag.

  72. Could anyone validate if the seller Bags R Us II from facebook is a legit seller? I bought a MK Hamilton bag from her yesterday, got it today., Though the bag "smells" like genuine leather, now i'm starting to doubt its authenticity after reading this blog, and read a comment mentioning the same sellers name. I should have known sooner *sigh*. Anybody had the same experience with the mentioned seller? Thanks.

  74. All the Emporio Armani watches from QWT Trading, through Metrodeal, are fake! I purchased one last December. When I received the package, I went to an authorized agent of Emporio Armani at Shangri-la Plaza Mall. They confirmed that the watch I had with me was not genuine!

    I intend to file a criminal complaint against the company officials/owners of Metrodeal and QWT Trading. They should be liable under Article 189 (Unfair Competition/False Description) of the Revised Penal Code. They should be incarcerated!

    I also noticed that QWT Trading changed its address to Cavite! (Formerly, it was located in Parañaque.)

  76. I just got my Longchamp Le pliage bag this afternoon. Excited ako kasi after 13 days of patiently waiting ay eto ang second Longchamp ko (my first 1 was bought in Rustan's). When i opened the courier's plastic bag, nagtaka ako bakit sa plain plastic lang nakalagay yung bag. When i finally touched the bag, i immediately felt the big difference between the one bought in Rustans and the one from QWT trading. Ibang iba ang texture ng flap. Malambot ang pagka leather ung authentic compared sa bagong dating kong longchamp. Fake nga! Sayang lang ang pera ko.

  79. Hi Nagpunta ng Paris ag sister ko last year at namili s'ya ng ilang LC bags. Iba't-ibang kulay at sizes at ibebenta ko ang mga ito pero nawala ang receipt so check ko muna sa Rustan's ang prices kasi baka malugi ang sis ko. Nabili n'ya pala ang mga bags sa LC outlet sa paris at made in China ito pero du'n sa LC outlet nila ibenebenta.

  80. Nag reply ang metrodeal sa email ko regarding sa nirereklamo kong fake ung LC ko from QWT trading. Eto ang reply:

    Thank you for contacting MetroDeal.

    In line with your concern, we would like to inform you that the merchant stands by the authenticity of the item.

    We hope this answers your inquiry.

  83. I ordered one longchamp bag yesterday from metrodeal. luckily i havent made the payment. i have been thinking why metrodeals can give a very cheap price. now i understand the reason why. and i will not make the payment, which is plan to be paid tomorrow. thanks for the post.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I knew from the start there was something fishy in those deals. There were just many tell-tale signs. Imasgine na lang yung legit distributors here in our country cannot produce hundreds and hundreds of pieces of 1 item tapos ang metrodeal can accept unlimited amount of orders. Then, ang price alone can make you think twice. It is true that anywher e you go, pwede magkaroon up to 90% off ang original item pero in limited quantity lang yan pinauubos lang ang stocks but for 200 300 400 orders WHOAH!!! also kung big time trading and supply business ka, i don't think you'll put your office in a remote, hard to reach area. pwede pa kung factory ka, which is not the case here. In the end, the moral of the story is CAVEAT EMPTOR and always remember also the old saying "if it seems too good to be true, it probably is." CUIDAO

  87. Hi May Mendoza,

    I think it's best to get in touch with their customer support first; if you don't get any positive results, then you can probably go to DTI to file a complaint: http://www.dti.gov.ph/splash.php.

  88. Hi Dreamwalker,

    It's more that a month now, I even sen them the item hopping that the process will go faster but they accused me that the item was used already and in that case it is still subject for evaluation. Even if, I only tried it on for less that 30mins. Grabeng scammer nila.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Hi @Dreamwalker. I'm glad your post is still up and people are still able to see the complaints. Just wanted to share my experience with them.

    After several bad experiences with them, I was wondering why there were so few complaints or bad reviews online. I decided to put up a M*deal complaints page so people could post their complaints. After some time, I started to get harassed, M*deal had their lawyer file complaints to the site operator. First they started taking down one post at a time then eventually, the entire page (and my account) got banned.

    Now we know why there are very few complaints about M*deal. Instead of investing in customer service, they invest in lawyers who seek out any complaints online and harass them into pulling the page down.

    Wishing you all the best on your campaign to keep your posts and this page up.

    Hoping many more people will read this and realize the true situation in that online deal site. God bless.

  90. I experienced almost the same thing with metrodeal. Thats why i unsubscribed from their newsletter already. I bought two shoeracks. The first one was delivered pero pagkareceive ko sobrang waley nung shoe rack. As in parang nabibili sa bangketa level at i couldnt even fill it with my shoes without it falling off. Tas other shoerack i ordered and paid for using my credit card, ayaw ideliver ng supplier until di ako nagddeposit ng separate payment for delivery. Nabv ako kasi hello, di ba pwede cash on delivery. Tas i had to follow up with the supplier several times before the supplier delivered. So parang ang role ng metrodeal was to post the offers, beyond that, wala na. Sana they make sure they provide quality products muna. Never dealt with metrodeal since.

  94. Hi Anonymous (latest comment), sorry I am not affiliated with either Metrodeal or QWT. Kaya sinulat ko tong post kasi I had my doubts about the authenticity of the bag I got from them. Usual route, unfortunately, is to get in touch with support. Email ba ginawa mo? (Para may record). I suggest getting in touch with them again, and if they don't cancel the order (baka policy), I know they have a refund process in place, although malamang in-store credits lang and the cash won't be returned to you. Good luck!

  99. Same thing happen to me when I bought a lacoste tote bag from metrodeal under Six A's merchant last april 2014. I doubted the authenticity of the bag as the inner stitches & cuts are poorly done. I even went to lacoste gateway branch just to confirm. To my dismay, I bought a fake one. I complained to metrodeal and they advised me to contact the merchant directly. Even though I sent them the photos they keep on insisting that they are selling originals & authentic items. The last response I received was disgusting as she said that my case is an isolated one. And they already dispatched thousands of items without such complain as mine. I told myself never to buy from these on line sellers as here in the philippines there is consumers rights protection.

  101. Hi, Dreamwalker. I hope you don't mind me posting this here.

    I'm a dissatisfied customer of MetroDeal. Through them, I ordered a Longchamp Le Pliage from QWT Trading. My purchase arrived late and was in the wrong size/had the wrong style code.

    To be fair, what QWT Trading delivered to me was authentic (made in China), but it was not what I ordered and paid for (wrong size/wrong style code; I don't think QWT Trading knows what standard Longchamp sizes are), so I asked for an exchange or a refund.

    It's been almost a month, and MetroDeal and QWT Trading still have not satisfactorily resolved my issue. It takes them so long to reply to emails as well.

    That said, I've been planning to file a complaint against both MetroDeal and QWT Trading with the DTI, thinking that DTI intervention might expedite the process. I already have a draft of my complaint, but I thought that others might want to contribute to it as well.

    To those who want to contribute to my DTI complaint against MetroDeal and QWT Trading, prepare the following pieces of information...

    - Full name, address, contact number (optional if you want to remain anonymous, but please do provide some kind of name to avoid confusion)
    - Narration of facts (i.e., testimony/complaint)

    ... and send them to complaints-dot-metrodeal-at-gmail-dot-com (I'm avoiding robot-spam by not posting a link).

    Thank you, Dreamwalker. I hope this comment finds you well.

At first she was answering my calls and apologizing for the delays since dw ngtagal yung mga items sa custom, just send her dw the details like the voucher and security codes, and so i did. I told her to make sure that the bags are authentic, sabi nya authentic dw kc dumadaan p cla s customs. 1week after our conversation, im calling her and shes not answering my call or even replying to my msgs!! I am really frustrated. Sabi s metrodeal it should be less than 5days delivery if u r within metro. Tsk! If the bag will not be delivered within this week or if they did not give us refund, I'll sue them! Guys, dont buy na in metrodeal.

Aside of that ginastusan ko pa sya sa Paris ... kasi ipinasyal ko sya kasi pinadala sya ng company nya sa Germany kaya pinapunta ko sya sa Paris.

  110. i don't know how to even start my unfortunate situation with METRODEAL AND LONGCHAMP AND SIX A's merchant. i have purchased this item:
    http://www.metrodeal.com/deals/Metro_Manila/Longchamp-LM-Cuir/820194030

    from december 2014 and up until now i still have not gotten the bag.
    what i had though, were all the NEVER-ENDING PROMISES from the seller (include METRODEAL on this for useless / time wasting communication that has solved NOTHING AT ALL)

    not only that i feel like the item is FAKE --- I've been wanting to REFUND my money since the item NEVER ARRIVED. they keep saying next week, after this after that... it's all bullshit. so I've had enough -- and that's IT! they only keep dragging the issue... now on its 3 months!!! from december 2014 to mar 3 2015 -- to i don't even know until when.

    they are all dead-ma after i say id like to REFUND.

    i'm done with it. i will file a case against them, and something should happen. if you like to work with me through this -- please send me an email and let's work together to beat all the sub standard, fraud and scam monkey business.

  112. Hi. I purchased 2 bags from Bags r us. Sayang late ko na nakita 'tong blog. The longchamp planetes large long handle is a fake. I compared it with a medium size bag that I have which I bought from Sweden. Yung texture ng bag sobrang tigas. The other bag is Guess Clarksville. Mukha syang authentic pero I doubted na nung nakita ko nga kasi yung LC bag. So I check for the tag na nakakabit dun sa Guess bag, it turned out na para sya sa ibang item. Ang tag na nakalagay is Belleville Multi Bag. Nagmessage na ako dun sa seller and hopefully magreply naman sy. Meron na ba snyong nakapagrefund kay bags r us? Thanks!

  116. Hi, I would like to share this.

    2 years ago, I tried applying in Groupon as a merchant. I have few accessories to offer. They asked me magkano ko daw ibibigay, (sa pagkakaalala ko), I said 100 something each. Then sabi nila, they will post it as 1000 plus something daw ang original down to 300 something para malaki daw ang discount blah blah. It so happened na yung kumausap sakin na agent ng groupon is fresh grad, and he said na ang minimum quota per agent is 10,000 pesos. Im not sure if this is per deal or per merchant.

    About the bags, the past days, naghahanap ako ng Izzie lacoste bag online since nakabili na ako sa Lacoste store mismo. To my surprise, 2000 plus lang sya sa online sellers, may 1800 pa! Ang pinagtataka ko, bakit yung interior shot na kinukuha nila is yung interior shot galing sa Lacoste site mismo. Iniisip ko na bumili kay Bags R Us since mura, pero naisip ko, im sure may "patong" na yung price nila, still mura pa rin. You get an Izzie med bag for 5000 plus sa Lacoste store, pag online seller 2000 plus. So half the price. Clearly, fake. One more thing, yung Izzie ni Bags R Us, naka wrap ng plastic yung handle, pero yung sakin na new stock from lacoste, insulator yung mga naka cover sa handle and metal parts nya. Isa pa, yung ibang sellers, nagtataka ako bakit lukot yung mga Izzie Lacoste nila, samantalang hindi ganun kadaling malukot yung material ng Izzie.
