One of the questions we often get is: Are the products sold in your store genuine? Without a doubt, the answer to this question is: Yes, all products in our store are authorized by the brand or distributor.
In the infinite space of the Internet, 42Shops is a very small online store. However, we fully respect the intellectual property rights and interests of the brands. Our value is that we will only be rewarded mentally and monetarily if we truly create value for the world. Selling pirated products may reap huge profits in a short period of time, but it is a very short-sighted and unsustainable act that violates the interests of brands and consumers.
President Abraham Lincoln famously said: You can fool all the people part of the time, or you can fool some people all the time, but you cannot fool all people all the time. We are always wary that people who fool others end up We are always alert to the fact that people who fool others will eventually be punished.
We always think differently
Due to the convenience of the Internet, many people shop online and can only judge whether it is worth buying through pictures and videos. Many of our customers have purchased imitation branded goods. So they are cautious and worried about buying pirated products. We understand that. We think differently about what we want to get when we shop online. What kind of service do we want to receive? We provide the products and services that we want for ourselves.
There is no doubt that we all want to buy what we want.
- Products that match the seller's pictures, text, and videos
- Reasonable prices
- Fast logistics
For cross-border shopping, fast logistics depends on international shipping costs, for example DHL, Fedex will be very fast, from Beijing, China to anywhere in the world in 4-6 business days. But as EMS, it will be much slower, usually takes 10-20 days. If it is a normal postal parcel, then the speed is even slower, it takes about 1-3 months. We are very lucky that our customers tend to be very patient. We are very grateful for that too.
We try to offer as many logistic options as possible for our customers. If you want to get your product quickly, then you can choose a commercial courier such as DHL, Fedex, etc. If you are not in a hurry, you can choose a slower but cheaper logistics option. We always put the choice in the hands of our customers, not in your place.
Logistics is not under our control, once the package is shipped from our warehouse, its fate will be decided by these logistics providers. Let's go back to products and prices.
Your interest is our interest
Whether for the customer or the brand, the way we think is that our interests are bound together. To harm our customers' interests is to harm our own; to harm the brand's interests is to harm our own. We don't do one-time business, we expect to be a long-term partner for consumers and brands.
Long-term interests are always the starting point of our thinking. Our profit will be slower than those infringers, but it will be longer than them. Take Changed products for example, many of our early customers were Changed players who had bought pirated Puro plush toys from other sources. When they first came to 42Shops, they always had one question: Is 42Shops selling authentic products?
Without a doubt, we will always tell you that yes, our products are sold under license. However, other sellers of pirated copies will give you a positive answer when they encounter the same question. So how can you, as an average consumer and player of Changed games, recognize the real thing? It's easy, we have a long relationship with DragonSnow, the developer of Changed games. You can see that we have a lot of interaction with DragonSnow on Twitter.
You can also see from our store's Everything about Changed game and Puro page that we are running this IP with great care, and whatever product is in our hands, we will do our best to make it the best it can be. When we enter a niche, we redefine what the best is in that niche. We aim to be the best in the world.
Finally, as always, our vision is to bring happiness to every consumer. Thank you for your support, without which we could not move forward.
