i received a notification from Gmarket that i was nominated for one of the best blogs for introducing Gmarket to the world. So they rewarded me with 50,000 won (estimate USD40). So its an extra reason for me to surf their site for beauty products... YEAH.
But for shopaholic like me, just can't settle to stay within the budget so of course i exceed. So top-up is required. But i was so excited that i click on the wrong choice, this is what i did.
Wrong demo by me:
Step 1: convert the gift cert value to Cash Balance
Step 2: Purchase Gcash payment via paypal (NOTE: If you charged Gcash with PayPal or Credit card, you are NOT allows to convert into cash balance. )
Step 3: I ask for help via their customer service through mail and their service is really top notch as they reply me like with half a day and immediately refunded me with no questions asked.
Step 4: They refunded me and gave me instructions in topping up my Cash Balance for purchase.
The correct method should be:
Step 1: convert the gift cert value to Cash Balance (if you do not have a gift cert, skip this and it will be just 1 step for you to do you top up or simply choose paying via paypal or credit card)
Step 2: Top up your balance by logging on to paypal, indicate the amount you want to top-up in USD and send paypal to email@example.com. When you send funds through firstname.lastname@example.org please put your Gmarket ID in Message to Recipient > Subject or Message.
Note: Top-up payment from paypal may take a maximum of 2 working days to be reflected on your balance. So don't panic like i did when i did not see the amount on my cash balance.
Hope this help you gals in making a smooth sailing shopping experience with Gmarket!!
Oh, if you wana know what i bought just stay tuned to my upcoming post. haha!
