Root758581yI investigated further.
The site also apparently uses React, but every action causes a page navigation? What's the point of using React, then?
I just wouldn't use such a crappy website because that makes them think they're doing it right. Ideally, they wouldn't sell anything via such a shitty web store.
Root758581yI almost forgot:
There's a heart button next to products. This doesn't mark them as favorites like you might expect; it's a "add to shopping list" button. Except I didn't find the "shopping list" I created anywhere.
The "most popular products" list curiously includes a $3500 bottle of cognac (boasting 3/5 stars), next to two identical entries for cheap boxes of White Claw.
The "products you might like based on your cart" contained only entries for wine despite my cart containing absolutely no wine. I never even looked at any wines.
There's a way to leave a star rating on products, but no way to leave actual reviews. Totally sucks.
The product detail page doesn't really list details about the product. You would think it would, at a minimum, list the alcohol %/abv/proof. But you would be wrong. I also ran into a few photos that are too blurry to read. High res, but blurry.
Just. So so so many issues.
(But yay, I can make drinks again!)
I hate how fucking stupid websites or pretty much every app is these days. They only need to do something simple and yet they focus on design and fancy visual crap - all horrible too. They are made for convenience and yet they barely accomplish being usable.
Considering the time (and sanity) you spent fighting their website, buying from another seller would probably have been cheaper, even if it had cost more money.
kamen60451yDirect that feedback to them and it might actually be productive.
@hash-table I would hope most people are using virtual cards when purchasing on shady websites. It's so easy to set them up it'd be silly not to.
Condor347711yYikes.. You'd start drinking for less with such a crappy website. Cheers!
"manufactured" I am glad I am not the only person who thinks this. I don't know if any of you were around during 9-11, but this whole crisis feels like 9-11 all over again. Overzealous government taking away liberties and removing all due process. Then over time information trickles in and you find out the whole event may have been planned.
