Lazada the best online shop in Vietnam?

Looking for household appliances and some sporting equipment.   Will Lazada be reliable to order from?

If you are a Citibank customer, Citi will pepper you with promotional emails about discounts at Lazada if you use their cards.  It does give them a certain credibility though.

Lazada worked for me one time. It is the amazon of Asia, they have country websites in at least Singapore, Philippines, and Thailand. You pay cash on delivery in Vietnam though which is weird, maybe someday they will figure out how to do credit cards on the internet,.
I don't know where you live, but if in a city, I would buy appliances in a showroom instead. Also sporting goods, most are available in malls, but then my reference is Sai Gon.

Goreme:  I didn't read your post carefully and just focused on the Lazada aspect.  Gobot is correct.  Buy it showroom.  I think the biggest shop for appliances has to be Nguyen Kim.  In Da Nang it is on Dien Bien Phu across from the lake.  They take Master Card and maybe Visa.  Sometimes they run sales with 15% off for using Master Card.   They will deliver and install plus do warranty work if needed.

Sporting goods tend to be in smaller shops.  Look close to the big sports centers.

Ok thanks for additional info, I'll have to take  a look.

I also have good experience with Lazada service for electronic equipments

Well, I found Lazada to be quite expansive and to mix to many things (Refurbished, new, second hands, through official shops, individual resellers, etc...)

I like tiki.vn (Good experience in delivery) but not so much products and price is not always competitive...

So I simply use http://websosanh.vn to compare prices first. Then I decide if I want to pay a bit more to get it from some shops like tiki or lazada.

Vietnam is still a cash dominant culture. Plus many locals do not have credit cards yet.
