Cycling clothes on wish.com, especially Rapha seem very cheap

Anyone tried it?

Think they're usually cheap because they are unauthorised copies.

That’s wish.co.uk not wish.com which the op asked about. The latter, however, wishes you to register before you can view it. Probably best avoided for thst alone.

I've done a bit of research and they are a legit company. A rival to ebay and Amazon, and they are a market place for traders in the same way. Their USP seems to be that you deal direct with the traders in China and this can make them cheaper.

They are a big company. They were Facebook's biggest advertiser, and spent a lot on TV advertising during the World Cup.

They say that they don't sell fake goods. Experiences seem to be mixed which you would expect from a market place with different traders

Delivery takes longer as it ships from China, and I don't know how returns would work.

I'm going to pass for now, but watch with interest

Wish. com doesn't fare much better on trust pilot either
