The Most Hilarious Online Shopping Fails Of All Time
1 False Advertising
This man posted a total Amazon shopping fail and wrote: “I Got This Tank Top On Amazon And They Sent Me A Dress. On The Plus Side, It Does Make My A** Look Great”
He’s not wrong.
2 Limited Edition
This person paid $750 for Yeezy sneakers and ended up getting house slippers in the mail. “Love My New Yeezys,” they sarcastically wrote.
Those are the priciest slippers on earth!
3 Pitch A Tent
This gentleman wrote about his unfortunate online shopping experience, saying, “3 Years Ago I Unknowingly Bought A 2 Person Child’s Tent Thinking It Was Adult Sized…and I Still Took It To The Festival.”
We love he made the best of the situation. He actually looks pretty cozy in there.
4 Welcome To The Dollhouse
Another Twitter user posted this pic and wrote the caption: “My Roommate Ordered A TV Stand Off Amazon. This Is What Came.”
The lesson here is to always double-check the product dimensions before you buy anything online.
5 Not As Advertised
One reader submitted these side-by-side photos along with the caption: “My sister ordered a dress online.”
Where’s the other half of her dress?
6 The World’s Smallest Chair
Someone posted this pic of an epic online shopping fail and wrote: “so I ordered a chair for my room of Amazon and…”
No wonder the chair sold for only $10!
7 An Unfortunate Typo
A disappointed shopper posted this sad photo of a necklace on Twitter with the caption, “@halsey hi i ordered your hopeless choker and it says hoeless. I want to Die”
This situation was hopeless from the start.
8 Fashion Disaster
This lady was not impressed by the dress that arrived on her doorstep. Something about the dress on the right looks different than advertised.
Who wouldn’t want to wear coffee filters as a bra?
9 Cat Backpack
This guy took to Twitter to share this online shopping fail, saying. “My mum ordered my nephew a converse rucksack for school online and this is what came.”
That cat looks like it’s ready to go to school.
10 Magic Carpet Ride
A dog owner shared this cute picture of their pup sitting on a tiny carpet and wrote, “Thought The Dimensions Were Much Larger. Least My Dog Can Take A Magic Carpet Ride.”
They just need to dress their dog up in an Aladdin costume, and this photo would be perfect!
11 Tip Of The Day
The folks over at Trades Van Center posted this funny picture and gave their followers sage advice on Twitter. “Tip of the day—don’t buy your chainsaw from eBay. #trades #fail”
That is the most literal interpretation of a “chainsaw” we’ve ever seen.
12 Three Foot Pool
The tiny pool that arrived in the mail shocked this person’s pal. They shared a silly photo and wrote, “Check Out This Three Foot Pool My Friend Got On Special From Online This Summer. I Can’t Wait To Jump In.”
In the seller’s defense, three feet actually fit in the pool.
13 Toe Tights
This gentleman planned to dress up as Cat Woman for Halloween. He was not happy when tiny doll tights arrived in the mail.
Well, at least his big toes are warm.
A disgruntled shopper posted this pic of the “loafers” they ordered online. This has got to be a joke.
Something tells us they had no intention of buying bread shoes.
15 Crochet Cat
A mother shared this hilarious review online, “My 16 Y.O Daughter Bought This. It Is Ridiculously Small And I Probably Couldn’t Legally Post A Pic Of What It Looks Like If She Attempts To Wear It. It Does Cover Cat’s Nipples.”
Kitty is not impressed.
16 Bad Apple
Apple Watches are very popular these days for having apps at your fingertips. This consumer obviously didn’t get what they paid for when a counterfeit “i watch” arrived in the mail.
This knock-off is so bad, it’s like the seller wasn’t even trying to fool anybody. Hopefully, the buyer got their money back!
17 Little Deck Chairs
A Twitter user posted this pic of small deck chairs and wrote, “Mum Order Deckchairs For The Garden For Her And My Dad And This Is What Came.”
Here’s another example of why it’s crucial to read the fine print when purchasing online.
18 Super-Sized Dustpan
A reader posted this photo of an online purchase gone wrong, along with the caption: “My Friend Ordered A Dustpan On Amazon… Trying To Figure Out Where We Find A Broom To Match.”
That thing is bigger than her.
19 Mirror Mirror
A woman proudly displayed her ridiculously small mirror and wrote, “Bought This Floor-Length Door Mirror.”
Not to argue semantics, but that mirror can totally touch the floor.
20 Expectation VS Reality
This lady made the mistake of purchasing her wedding dress online. “Never again will I order a dress from China. Never again,” she wrote.
It looks fine. If she doesn’t mind looking like a green sherbert float when she walks down the aisle.
21 Xbox None
This poor guy paid $750 for what he thought was going to be an Xbox One, but ended up receiving nothing more than a piece of paper.
That is one expensive piece of paper!
22 Crazy Shoes
An online shopper discovered these ridiculous shoes in the mail. They look nothing like the pair they ordered.
Talk about A DIY project gone wrong!
23 Something Is Not Right
A woman shared her sad story of an online purchase gone wrong, saying, “So, I thought I ordered this really cute wifey nightgown, but this is what I got instead. Lol. Just don’t buy anything online.”
This seems like a case of one size fits nobody.
24 Online Shopping Probs
Someone posted about their mom’s funny mishap, writing, “My Mother Bought A Swing Set From Amazon… She Said This One Cost $17 The Other One Was $22.”
Totally brings a new meaning to the term “Little Tikes”.
25 You Get What You Pay For
This woman learned the hard way that you shouldn’t always buy dresses online at a discounted price.
At least she has a good sense of humor about it all.
26 Bad Hair Day
This pet owner was not happy with the costume they received. “When You Are Not Sure About Your Outfit. It Says Lion Costume Online. Really? More Like A Bad Hair Day Costume,” they wrote.
Doggie looks thrilled.
27 Another Bad Apple
Someone posted this pic of their buddy’s misfortune. “A Friend Of Mine Bought A Ipad From eBay For $5. Shipped From Hongkong. I’m Still Laughing.”
There’s a lesson to be learned here. If it seems too good to be true, that’s because it probably is.
28 What She Ordered Vs. What She Got
A woman ordered what she thought was going to be a cute white dress, but this nightmare arrived instead.
This would actually make an impressive Halloween costume if she wanted to dress up like the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters.
29 Special Requirements
A woman shared an online shopping mishap on Twitter and said: “Tried To Surprised My Mum For Mother’s Day. Put This In The Special Requirements And They F***in Print It On The Box.”
A closer look shows that she actually wrote her message as delivery instructions, so the message appeared on the outside of the box to alert the delivery person. Duh!
30 50 Shades Of Nope
This person shared a pal’s absurd online shopping experience. “My Friend Ordered 50 Shades Of Grey On eBay, This Is What She Received,” they wrote.
There really are 50 different shades of grey on that paper, so they technically received what they ordered.
