Advantage of SM online shopping

10. Fast shopping
Disadvantages of SM online shopping
1. They only allow card for pick-up items. I hope they will allow cash payment since it’s in the malls and there are counters.
2. You cannot check the quality of the items. The sizes and texture of what you ordered.
3. After check out all your items are already gone and you cannot check it again. And you will wait for the email confirmation.
4. The update takes too long and the shopper have no idea what happened to their order.
5. The email contains days of delivery but it seems they days are not reliable. They should at least inform the shopper the days from preparation and pick-up by courier and if the items have been fetch.
6. Text message from the courier that it will be delivered but arrived after 2 days.
These are just the things i encountered but despite all of it. I was satisfied with the packaging, it was neatly sealed with SM packaging tape and plastic wrap to protect the box and the items delivered. Thank you for our items are in good hands. My overall rating for SM from 1-10. I will give it a 6 rating. So they could have room for improvement. Looking forward to another delivery from SM. At ShopSM you can still earn points if you input your SM advantage card no.
