Khristine Joy Fornillos says
Lazada is the worst online store in the country. They are sending wrong items that are not your orders and worst if you make a refund they will give you a voucher which you never asked for. You gave them cash and why are they giving you a voucher? Your service sucks. The refund takes a very long time. Can you just imagine they took your money on the day of delivery with a wrong item and then they have the audacity to hold your refund for months? There are so many bad feedback so to speak and i am one who had a worst experience. I ordered a smart watch and the delivered a mosquito killer. It did not happen once but twice.
