Shoppers share their most disastrous online shopping fails – and some of them will have you crying with laughter

MANY of us rely heavily on online shopping these days – but as this series of unfortunate purchases proves, it’s not always that reliable.

From cardboard iPads to seriously dodgy fancy dress outfits, it appears these less-than-satisfied customers have at least managed to see the funny side.

 Imagine ordering a new iPad and it arrives made from cardboard?!

Imagine ordering a new iPad and it arrives made from cardboard?!

Many items posted by bemused shoppers to social media show buys that look nothing like what they’d ordered.

One unfortunate customer was hoping to receive a sequined pillow – but admitted she should have looked up the measurements when a tiny, palm-sized version arrived.

Another purchased a navy jumpsuit, but what came bore zero resemblance to the picture on the website.

And imagine this shopper’s confusion when the £2,000 pair of Kanye West’s Yeezy Boost trainers they bought on eBay turned out to be made of cardboard!

Oh Yeezus!

Should have checked the measurements…

Sure it’s not meant for the bathroom?

Having a ruff day

Talk about two left feet!

What kind of game were they playing?

Isn’t this tie-dye for?

A new pair of loafers

Hope she was feeling chair-itable when this arrived

I guess I should read the dimensions next time… #thankskmart #onlineshoppingfail #nowwhat

Earlier this year we decided to test out whether eBay prom dresses ever look like the photos… with hilarious results.
