My Online Shopping Experience with Porkdaisy.Com

My first online shopping experience with

Hi All..

Today I am writing a post on my very first online shopping order with This is actually not my first online purchase though but this is the first time I used my credit card to buy something from a site about which I had not heard much. I was so doubtful rather scared while placing my order for I thought neither I’ll get my stuff nor any refund even, but I was totally wrong. 😀

pork daisy review

Porkdaisy is a website that exclusively sells Nyx cosmetics and that too at discounted rates. One can find the entire Nyx cosmetic range available at this website and that too at a lesser price than that available with the other equivalent sites. The items are always on discount/sale on this website and one gets a 10% additional off too. You can check it out here:

I wanted to try getting my stuff from ebay first as my bill was coming out to be the minimum there and also there were a wide variety of offers on many products, but as PayPal is not working in India now and moreover ebay does not allow any other mode of payment (I tried using my CC but didn’t work) so I had to go for the next available option of

I was hesitant from the starting in placing my order so decided to order only a few items first. I would have ordered just 1 eye pencil initially but after much checking and calculation, got to the result that shipping for 4 slim pencils would fetch the same shipping cost to me. So I placed an order of 4 NYX slim pencils using my credit card.

I placed the order on 28/3/2011 at 5PM and it was dispatched the same day in the night. Very Fast 🙂 . For placing my order, I got some reward points too which could be redeemed while placing my next order. Reward points are different for each item ordered & I got a total of 12 points for the 4 slim eye pencils. 1 point=0.1$ which means that 1.2$ can be reduced in my next bill. 😉

Now comes the delivery part. I opted for the least shipping payment mode which is the ‘USPS First class’ and it was supposed to take 7-14 business days to deliver the item. I thought even if my item comes in a month then also I would be super happy but to my surprise, I received my parcel on the 15th day itself. 😀

As USPS is not a traceable shipping method (that I was unaware off) so I was not able to track my order. And on 9/4/2011, I wrote them on their 1 on 1 support system about the whereabouts of my order for which I got the response the very next day. So they are very quick to respond to their customer queries too. Again a plus point. And 2 days later, I received my parcel.

Although I knew about through fellow readers at IMBB but when I compared my same order with both websites, I found that with cherryculture, the bill amounted to 6-7$ more. Actually they levy a high shipping charge; major difference in the prices was because of that itself. Even porkdaisy have a better reward scheme than cherryculture.

Good points about this PorkDaisy.Com

• Ships items the very same day.
• Huge discounts on all items.
• Additional 10% off on your purchased items.
• A great reward point system that helps one to save while buying.
• Prices are less compared to its counterpart websites.
• Less shipping charges which increases with the number of items bought.
• Quick response to the customer queries.
• Speedy delivery.
• Proper packaged parcel received without any damaged or used piece.
• User friendly interface of this website.

Drawbacks: Not of this website but in general:

• Risk is involved in online shopping of non delivery or damaged goods.
• I still prefer using Paypal over Credit card purchases as it is a much safer way to shop online.

Would I shop again: Definitely yes. I like Nyx cosmetics a lot. Although it is available in Hyderabad to me still because of the big price difference, I would like to purchase the stuff online itself. Already thought of my second order which I will place this month end with this website.
