The Biggest Scam in Online Fashion

The Biggest Scam in Online Fashion | Social Media | Scoop.it

It's been a great year for JustFab.com--the "subscription" shoe website just pulled in a $40 million investment, bringing their total VC backing to $149 million. The service boasts millions of users...

 

When you go to JustFab.com, there's no hint about how the site really hauls in its money. It just looks like any other shoe store—think Zappos, with a drunk 10th grader sloshing some pink paint around. Beneath the mall-chic facade is the "JustFab VIP Membership Program," a near-compulsory subscription shoppers are pushed into joining upon checkout.

 

The pitch: you can get a pair of high quality boots for just $40!

 

The reality: you'll be charged $40 every subsequent month whether you want more boots or not.

 

This fact is presented to you in the most obscured—you might say deliberately!—manner. The VIP Membership isn't mentioned on the front page, it's not mentioned during sign-up, it's not mentioned when you take a "style quiz"—only when you hit checkout do you have a (slight) chance to read the very fine print....
