For blog writting contest held by G-market every month, I’m going to write this post in English ^^;
Last month, I decided to brace myself up to place an order at G-Market English website. Before shopping, I did my research : How to pay, how to order, how much I have to pay for tax/shipping fee, and read other blogs about their experience with G-Market.
Ordered stuff :
- INFINITE Second Invasion : 1st Concert Live In Seoul 인피니트 첫번째 콘서트 공연 영상 from Synnara
- BAP – Recording Take 1 (80p Photobook) – this is my sister’s from Synnara
- 2 pcs of Pet clothes from PETIA
Total Estimated Weight : 3.92 Kg
At first I want to pay using my credit card (VISA) but it was rejected because it didn’t pass the verification with 3D Secure. I tried my 2nd card published by Mastercard but it also got rejected with the same reason. ლ(ಠ_ಠლ) I was so upset. I thought I couldn’t order from G-Market. Then I remember I had Paypal account linked to my Bank account already so I tried using that option to pay and IT WORKED! ~(‘▽’~) (~’▽’)~
I read at some blogs that Paypal rate is higher than credit card. But I don’t care lah, I just wanna succeed purchasing stuff from Gmarket xD.
The next morning, I checked my status order and Synnara already proceed my order and they shipped it to Gmarket office just in 1 day. How fast is that! I really like their service.
Now I only need to wait for my pet clothes from Petia. The seller took 5 days to proceed my order!! And what annoyed me the most is the clothes are ready stock! Not custom made. I was so upset and impatient. I sent them a message twice, asking when willl they send my order. I sent a message on 23rd (yeah you can see how Impatient I was), they replied immidiately (good!) and said my item will be shipped out on 24th. (I used Korean, btw. Thanks to Google Translate)
My order still hasn’t been shipped out until the 25th. So I sent another message and they said they would ship it on 27th. :| They kept they promise and around 28th morning, G-market HQ already received all my items ~(‘▽’~) (~’▽’)~ They shipped it out right away! *i luv you gmarket for your quick service*
Now I only need to wait until the items arrive in Indonesia. I check my EMS tracking everyday. kkkkkk.
My items arrived at Soekarno Hatta airport on the 30th. Stuck at the custom until 03/09 :| Btw I’m using EMS Pos Indo for tracking. GMarket also provide tracking service but I was so worried when the status was written “held by custom – invoice missing” :| I ignored that status and just trust EMS Pos Indo tracking service.
They discharged my package on 03/09. By the way I will write about this custom problem on a separate post. Let’s just skip it to the happy moment xD
I received my package on Wed, 05/09. So in total it takes around a week to order from G-Market. That’s pretty fast right?! When I ordered from Japan before, It took me 2-4 weeks until my package arrive.
The package arrived in a big tattered box Ծ_Ծ But my DVD & Photobook are safe! They’re covered in bubble wrap.
The pet clothes are also good! Really similar to the picture. I ordered both in XXL-size (had to pay extra 1000 won ><“) But it turned out it’s too big for my Dachshund :)) Although their service is slow but I’m satisfied with their products. I will order from them again ;)
My dogs look cute in their new clothes, right? XD
By the way the female clothes are cuter than this. I couldn’t resist the tempation so I just purchased the pink one. wkwkwk. I wish I had female dog :))
And how’s my sis’s photobook? It’s a bit crumpled. hahaha. She’s disappointed a little. It’s really BIG! B4-size (364mmx257mm). TS Entertainment always comes up with this concept for their photobook. My sis had their second photobook and the size is the same like this. Same quality, HQ Pictures, using nice photo paper (dove/soft paper) too instead of the glossy ones.
INFINITE SECOND INVASION IN SEOUL DVD
And the main spotlight : MY INFINITE 2ND INVASION DVD
It’s thick and heavy (around 2kilos)! The size is about half of BAP photobook. It comes with ENGLISH SUBTITLE *international fangirls scream and rejoice together* (งˆ▿ˆ)ง I was so happy it comes with SUBTITLE throughout the concert and behind the scene xD
DVD in details :
I LOVE THE PACKAGING! I love the members’ sillhouette embossed on the back of the box. I can’t stop watching the DVD too XD Will definitely purchase their DVD again. I hope Woollim release “In The Summer” Concert DVD too.
And that’s some of the photos from the photobook.
I will definitely order again from G-MARKET english site. I’m now a Gold member ahahaha :))
BTW, the Actual weight after it arrived at Gmarket HQ was 3.11kg. I saved 2000 won (งˆ▿ˆ)ง
