This retailer has existed since 2015. However, for a long time the site had an outdated interface, which many buyers did not like. In July 2017, global changes took place: the store’s interface was completely redesigned, making purchases became much more convenient. Small bugs that appeared as a result of the update were quickly eliminated, and customers who helped in finding errors received gifts.
The resource has an easy to learn interface. Moreover, he is completely Russian-speaking. The upper part of the site allows authorization. Here, the buyer sees the amount of goods in the “Wish List” and “Basket”. Below is the search bar, as well as buttons to help you find out information about payment and delivery methods. Here you can track the order.
The left side of the start page is reserved for the directory. It is always disclosed, allowing you to immediately evaluate the range of goods. That is, it immediately becomes clear to the user that Umka Mall sells not only smartphones, but also sports accessories, tools, all sorts of things for adults, computer equipment and much more. To the right of the catalog is a slider with current promotions - it helps to make the most profitable purchases.
The lower part of the site begins with new product cards. Further, all sorts of banners and cards of the most popular goods are located, which we are less interested in.
As for the display of goods, it is also implemented very well. Most of the page at this moment is occupied by a photograph of the device, which allows you to see the device in all details. On the right are the price tag, buttons for adding to the “Cart” and “Wish List”, as well as a flag for choosing the color of the case. If you order several copies, then the system immediately calculates their total cost. Below is a brief description of the smartphone. In separate tabs are characteristics and reviews. There are few of the last ones on the site, because the new version of the site has very little time. Unless you read this article in some 2020. As for the specifications, they talk about all the important components of the device. Sometimes even the frame rate when shooting movies is indicated.
If you go to the "Phones" section, a fairly wide range of such products opens. Basically, all these are smartphones manufactured by Ulefone , Bluboo , DOOGEE , AGM and other Chinese companies. The left side of the site at this moment allows you to select a specific brand. It is strange that at least one of them is spelled incorrectly. Also, the retailer for some reason added Redmi to the list of trademarks, although all Xiaomi smartphones are hiding under a common brand. By the way, they are still very few.
Another site allows you to choose smartphones and mobile phones by price, color, diagonal of the display, the number of SIM cards and many other parameters. In this regard, the developers have worked wonderfully! Separately, you can even cause the display of devices with a waterproof housing!
Of course, the site also sells accessories for smartphones. Among these products are safety glasses, external batteries , lenses for phones , memory cards , cases and much more. Umka Mall also offers smart glasses and VR helmets .
Prices and affordable payment methods
The prices in this online store are comparable to what sellers selling on AliExpress ask. Some devices may even cost a little cheaper. But you should not rejoice, because as of November 2017, Umka Mall does not allow you to receive a cashback.
An example is the smartphone DOOGEE X9 mini. At both sites, it costs around 3,900 rubles. If the relatively new online store has any problems, then only with the content. Here you can easily not find any Chinese smartphones that have long been popular.
Delivery of any device is free. Apparently, all the goods are already in Russia. Therefore, Moscow residents will be able to receive the desired smartphone after 4-6 working days (while sending by courier is possible). Residents of the regions will have to wait a week or more. However, everything is better than a month of waiting with GearBest and AliExpress, so this is the main advantage of the retailer. However, nothing bad can be said about the possible payment methods. Among them:
- Bank card (MasterCard and VISA);
- "Yandex money".
The choice is not the widest, but most buyers use these payment methods.
Umka Mall is a very good online store with a number of advantages over competitors. Firstly, it uses a convenient interface. Secondly, the delivery of goods does not deprive the buyer of a month of waiting. Even if it is located in Kazakhstan or Belarus (smartphones are sent to these countries too). Of the shortcomings, it can be noted only not the widest assortment and the minimum number of reviews. However, gradually, I want to believe, both of these shortcomings will be eradicated.
