I'd like to know too - the site seems pretty well laid-out and designed...but I would wait on purchasing until someone here confirms. Sometimes new sites spring up and while some are authentic, a lot aren't.
Thanks for letting us know - so all in all, it all worked out. But I would've been very nervous too, especially with not knowing up front what the actual price was going to be!Let me tell you a story:
I looked all over the internet for info on this ite but found NOTHING. They have some fantastic prices on Giorgio Armani bags. I was afraid of getting scammed so I emailed them and asked "what's the catch" and "why are your prices so low" and "why can't I find a single person who has bought from you?"
They were very helpful and sent me magazine articles about themselves and assured me they were on the up and up. So I decided to try it, totally expecting to get ripped off. There is a GA bag I want but I ordered a different bag, an older GA that was 360.00. as a dry run for the $1000. bag I really wanted.
So I added the bag to my cart and it kept kicking it out of my cart? I'm gonna get ripped off. Then I created an account and it went to my cart just fine. Oh well I haven't paid yet. So I add it to my cart and it won't give me a total with shipping UNTIL I PAY! Good grief this is going to get ugly. I email them, mind you they aren't open 24/7 like American online shops. I ask them why I can't get a true amount and they were very helpful but that's just how it is. So I'm thinking my $300 bag will end up being $600.
It took me 3 days to finally get the nerve to press that PAY button! This was my first international purchase so I didn't know what to expect. So Friday night I'm having a few cocktails with my husband, I get a little tipsy and go hit that PAY button. ERROR! Problem with your transaction. please contact us ASAP! Dear Lord please help me. So I contact them but you know it's Friday night and they're closed.
They get back to me Saturday and tell me my card put a hold on my possibly fraudulent purchase and to call them. My conscience is soo telling me to stop now, but I need that bag. So I call the card company and take care of it. Then I stew over this for a few hours and then I did it. I pressed PAY
And then the strangest thing happened. I got an instant email from Italist thanking me for my purchase and here's your receipt and heres an email to refer a friend and they'll get 25euros to spend and your bag will be there in 3-10 days heres your tracking number and it is leaving first thing monday morning.
It left there Monday and I just got it today(Thursday) and it is brand new and properly packaged and authentic and beautiful and smells so good. Whew!
So They are a lovely company, I give them 5 stars!
