Gmarket… ahhh I LOVE YA!
What’s Gmarket? Gmarket is Korean no. 1 online shopping site and it’s my current favorite place to look for good deals. I first learned about Gmarket when I was following Faith 신의 novel news. At that time I thought Gmarket cater for books only. Later in another blog, I found out Gmarket offer a lot of other cool products from Korea such as apparel, accessories, beauty, electronics and so much more.
Basically Gmarket consist of many sellers. Each sellers will then send your order to Gmarket warehouse. Once all items has arrived at the warehouse, they will be packed and combine into 1 box and ship to you. How do you pay for your stuff? Either by credit card or Paypal.
For my 1st Gmarket haul, I bought a total of 10 items. Oh yeah… is that crazy or what? Some of them are SUPER DUPER cheap especially beauty products because I bought them during deals of the week. Seriously I cannot belief they would offer such prices. Are they crazy? Haha Read on below and you’ll know what I mean.
