When you sell designer & name brand sunglasses, shoes, handbags, watches, etc., especially at a discount, a popular question is always going to be if the items are authentic, fake, or knock-offs. To answer that question…
Click the link above, and let’s take a closer look at their recent feedback history. Amazon buyers have a really good way of weeding out the good sellers from the bad. If an item even SLIGHTLY looks like it might be a counterfeit or knock-off, they will leave you bad feedback. And any and all flaws will usually be reflected in a seller’s feedback. With that being said, over the last year, AreaTrend has received about 4,700 positive feedback ratings, compared to just 2% negative feedback comments. With that sort of lop-sided ratio, it definitely appears as though AreaTrend is an honestly run business, selling authentic merchandise.
All items are guaranteed to be 100% authentic, and come with all the manufacturer paper work, in their original authentic boxes as provided by the manufacturers.
AreaTrend has their own website as well. The Google Customer Reviews for their site are also outstanding. Over 600 reviews (91% positive), with a 4.6 overall score. The graph indicates that the majority are 5 star ratings.
Other Things to Consider
AreaTrend is a stocking dealer for all of the brands that they offer in their store. Why is this significant?
Most Amazon sellers, and the majority of online stores for that matter are drop-shippers. What does that mean? It means that a drop-shipper is basically a middle-man. They take your order (with higher mark-ups), and pass it on to the manufacturer or main distributor, who then sends you the product(s). In other words, they are just ordering it on your behalf.
Have you ever had a messy return on Amazon? Gone through a bunch of emails back and forth, and waited for weeks, or more to receive your refund? Then you know this problem all too well.
That is the basic problem with drop-shippers. The more distance you put between yourself and the actual shipper of the product, the more you increase the potential for problems to occur.
Since AreaTrend IS a stocking dealer, that means their products come directly from their warehouse. All returns and exchanges are dealt with directly in-house.
What I like or don’t like
Their storefront is very organized. You have a product menu on the left side with all of the categories that they sell. So you just find your desired category, and go from there. Once you get into a listing page, the menu carries over there as well. So this store is very easy to navigate.
Another thing I appreciate is their attention to detail in their listings. Each listing has multiple clear and large pictures, so you can clearly see what is included in the listing. Their descriptions go into a lot of detail, and provide all the specifications that you might be looking for like the model they work for, size, color, etc. The quality of their listings is about as good as it gets on Amazon. You get all sorts of pictures, sizes, weights, package contents, etc.
Their attention to detail, and their excellent feedback really makes you feel secure in shopping from this Amazon store. As does their 60-day hassle free returns policy. No need to email back for a return authorization, or deal with with annoying emails back and forth. You just click on return, and send it back. And having two months to do so is quite convenient.
If you are interested, you can check them out their Instagram profile. They have some interesting content up there as well, including the latest styles in fashion, new inventory, and any online specials or deals they are currently offering.
