12+ Cool Online Orders That Didn't Live Up To Their Photos

Lex Gabrielle 31 Jul 2020

Everyone loves shopping online — there's no denying it. Especially when we can find some pretty cool things on the internet, online shopping is where it's at. When you're in a store, things don't hit the same way they do when you see them on your computer screen. Plus, it's easy to put in your credit card and order absolutely anything you want. But, the problem with online shopping is that not everything shows up the way we think it will.

1. A bench the size made for a Barbie doll.

Always read the fine print when you shop online, even on sites like Amazon. Clearly, this bench is made for a Barbie or a doll of that size, not a human being.

2. This dish rack is definitely not what this person ordered.

Reddit

Everyone would want that dish rack that looks stunning and high-tech. Getting this small, tiny, holder? Well, that's a disappointment in itself. Plus, it's really more of a basket than anything.

3. I'm so confused.

Why would Wet Ones make a package that is this size? Who is it even for? A tiny bird? A doll? Definitely not a person with real hands or real needs.

4. There's definitely something missing here.

Reddit

Unless you're a magician who can see the non-existent numbers on this scale, there is something missing completely. How can you measure anything with no numbers?

5. This looks... gross.

Reddit

How can anyone eat this? It looks like this cupcake was moldy and sitting in the packaging warehouse for years before this person ordered it. Send it back — don't risk the moldy cupcake.

6. Size matters.

Reddit

Whenever we order something, we expect it to be the right size especially when the picture shows it to be a specific proportion. But, it looks like this just is for a dog. Maybe a tiny dog at that.

7. Teeny, tiny carpet.

Sure, this product claims to be a shag sheepskin rug. But, this looks like it's made from super cheap materials and it is definitely not the same as the photo. Photoshop, photoshop, photoshop!

8. How?!?

Reddit

I would want those awesome cool cloud lamps, too. But if I received these cotton balls in the mail and a water bottle, oh man, I would write a terrible review. The ad did not specify that this was a DIY situation.

9. Camping chairs for...who?

Reddit

Researching the type of chairs you're going to take on your camping trip with you is vital. But, these are made for... I'm not quite sure who.

10. Two left feet? No problem.

Reddit

While this is something that cannot be helped, it's definitely disappointing to look forward to getting a pair of new shoes and getting two left shoes instead.

11. She ordered a copy of 'Fifty Shades of Gray' and got... this.

Reddit

This is a hilarious outcome, but also, if I paid for a book I would want a book. eBay sellers have some tricks up their sleeves, so watch out!

12. Should be labeled "less stuffed."

Reddit

These aren't even stuffed as much as a regular Oreo cookie. They should be labeled as "less stuf" and not "the most stuf." The poor, poor people who fell for this package.

13. How does this even happen?

Reddit

This one makes absolutely no sense to me. How can they advertise a giant and insanely large cushion and then send a throw pillow? Yikes. Get your money back.

14. What is this EVEN?

That bed is absolutely stunning and of course, anyone would want one for their own room. But what she got in the mail? Oh my gosh, return immediately! Get a refund! Write a nasty letter!
