Why not buy a sex toy on aliexpress or wish


If you’re looking to buy sex toys on e-commerce platforms, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Obviously, e-commerce giants like AliExpress or Wish would have the widest range and the lowest prices, but you can’t be sure that what you see in the pictures is what you’ll get. On these sites, people sell dropshipped products they’ve never even touched or seen. The quality of sex toys from China could be dubious and you could even get a counterfeit toxic product delivered to your door. With these low-quality sex toys flooding the market, there are more reasons you should avoid AliExpress or Wish.

Quality

AliExpress is just an e-commerce retailer and it doesn’t vet the materials used to manufacture the products sold there, nor does it do any quality assurance to ensure that the products are of high quality. The sex toys sold on the site may not be body-safe and could stop working after a few uses. Some are made of cheap 306 steel which can get rusty, others are made of porous material. If you run into any issues, you can forget about getting any customer support.


On the other hand, Oxy-shop only uses stainless steel 316L which is medical grade and body-safe for its sex toys. From sourcing to polishing, we have full control of the manufacturing process to ensure high-quality sex toys that are made to last.

Would you buy ONE OF thOSE for 20 USD? 

From Aliexpress or Wish after few uses

Bad quality material is porous and rust easily after few uses. 

Even tough a good quality steel might be mentioned on the product listing, it is not always true. 

Would you buy ONE OF thOSE for 50 USD?

Go for quality. Oxy shop only uses stainless steel 316L - Non porous - Medical grade,. thus body safe. An investment for the long term. 

Authenticity

Ordering sex toys from sites like AliExpress is always a gamble. While AliExpress has a counterfeit policy that verifies genuine products and gives you a refund if you can prove that what you received was a knock-off, you can’t always be sure. Popular brands like njoy, Magic Wand, LELO, We-Vibe, and Tenga have all been ripped off.


It’s not uncommon for buyers to receive faulty counterfeits or products that look nothing like the photos. Counterfeit sex toys also make many unverified, unsafe claims that are harmful to your body. 

Price

Here’s a good rule of thumb: If the price of a sex toy from a well-known brand is much lower than the product’s actual price from a reputable sex shop, you’re probably not getting the real thing. And yes, you could save a lot from buying a sex toy off AliExpress but you could end up losing more if you suffer an infection from using that sex toy and have to pay a big hospital bill. Don’t skimp on sex toys, but don’t blow your budget on the most expensive ones. Going with a shop like Oxy-shop which offers mid-range prices will give you bang for your buck.

Oxy-shop is a trademark and recognised brand in the industry. 

Service

Customer service from a third-party reseller who dropships sex toys on AliExpress is pretty much non-existent. The reseller doesn’t care about how their products can serve your specific lifestyle needs, but speciality sex shops like Oxy-shop do. Oxy-shopoffers a wide range of sex toys catered to different fetishes, and you’ll be sure to find something for your kink. What’s more, Oxy-shop also offers an after-sale service and customer support if you run into any issues with the toys you’ve ordered from us.

Oxy-shop is rated "Excellent" on trustpilot / For the quality, the large choice and the service provided. 

CONCLUSION

When it comes to sex toys, you should be buying from trusted retailers instead of third-party resellers on AliExpress. Before buying, do your research to find a brand or specific product for your needs. Some of the most reputable sex shops include Oxy-shop, Stockroom and LoveHoney, so remember this the next time you’re shopping for a sex toy!
