Great Shopping Site

by Charlie
(FYI Denmark)


For those of you living in Denmark (or for that matter anywhere in the world) and find that so many things are overpriced or just too expensive, let me share a shopping site that I have found to be very interesting and affordable.


For the past several months I have been shopping on WISH.com, which is a site that is based in China. I wanted to test out the merchandise , customer service and security before recommending it to my readers on FYI Denmark. Several of my friends have also been buying on the site for awhile and we have pretty much all had a positive experience.

Pros and Cons: The best part is that the prices are very very cheap. Many things are FREE and you only pay for postage which is often 7kr or 14 kr. The highest postage I have paid is 32kr and that was a pretty heavy and large package. Would have paid 50 kr to mail it in Denmark and 100kr to send it outside Denmark. Large and fun assortment of goods. The quality of the items I have received has been good to very good. Nothing yet has been “bad quality”.

I have ordered dozens of items and nothing has had to be returned or refunded due to disappointment or quality.

The bad part of using WISH is that the delivery time can vary from quick to slow. So far I have purchased 36 things on WISH.com. Quickest I got anything is 14 days from placing order to 44 days. They say that the mailing process can take up to
2 months, so you have to be patient.

I buy mostly Christmas gifts, birthday gifts, things that are not needed immediately, but will come in handy when they arrive. So if you can wait, it is well worth checking it out and trying a few things. Remember that you pay postage per item, so often postage can add up quickly. Keep an eye on that cost. Each item is sent from a different seller so postage is not combined - not even if you buy multiple items from the same seller.

At FYI Denmark, we have gotten curtains, clothes, shoes, household goods and decorative items and each one was well packaged and decent to good quality. Note that there has yet to be any instructions or manuals included not even washing instuctions. You get the item, no receipts, nothing else. Bare bones.


If you decide to check out WISH.com and download the app, remember to use this code: jvwsxkd when you check out and get up to 50% off your first purchase. This code is only valid with your first purchase. We tried it with our 2nd purchase and it was not valid.

You can also earn additional rewards like 5- 15% on future purchases when you give product reviews for items you purchased and send in photos/videos of your product.

P.S. FYI Denmark and friends trust and like this site VERY much. We do not earn commission on this recommendation or your purchases. This is just such a great site and so many of our friends really enjoy shopping here and we think you will too.

Happy Shopping.

It's true that you don't need the passport to cross the borders but, you do need a passport to identify your self to a police officer if they ask you.
