Recently we exposed HexPress Shop, hosted at HexPress.Shop, as a scam! We have been notified by one of our visitors that they have closed shop and reopened another a new name – GoodTop.shop. Indeed, the layout of the site is exactly the same as that of HexPress Shop.
Presenting their platform as a bargain-oriented online retailer, GoodTop Shop is an illusive and poorly constructed scam operation.
Rendering minuscule sums of ownership information, GoodTop Shop functions as a rather anonymous operation, or at least they use to until we investigated them.
To find out more information, along with our investigative findings, we invite you to continue reading our unbiased review.
GoodTop Shop is structured to appear as a highly discounted online retailer.
Most of the prices that you see right when you land on their site show drastic price decreases of nearly 75% to 95% of alleged retail market value.
These huge price decreases are used for one purpose alone which would be lure consumers further into their platform.
How the Scam Works
GoodTop Shop functions under the same capacity as iDepot Mall, another retail scam we recently exposed.
First, both platforms bait and lure in prospective consumers by grabbing their attention with ridiculously discounted prices on a wide range of consumer products and goods.
These categories of ‘available’ consumer products and goods cover jewelry, clothing, electronics, seasonal goods, toys, arts & crafts, home appliances and office, and much more.
By driving in consumers by marketing price points that are just high enough to avoid suspicion from some gullible online shoppers, GoodTop Shop has been able to swindle consumers when it comes to the check out process.
Just like with iDepot Mall, GoodTop.Shop checkout process sometimes goes through smoothly and other times not at all.
Some consumers claim to receive confirmation emails that they purchases were placed while some online shoppers report not receiving any sort of confirmation.
Two common denominators amongst consumers who have fallen with GoodTop Shop would be how their credit card was charged shortly afterward and no consumer goods were ever received.
GoodTop Shop appears as a legitimate online retailer, which is why their platform is so dangerous for unsuspecting online shoppers.
Apart from trying to save money by comparing prices online, GoodTop Shops makes their platform an easy mechanism to lure in and illegally steal money from innocent consumers.
They do not support any inventory nor do they employ a drop-shopping model either.
Instead what scams like GoodTop Shop rely upon to build credibility would be by creating phony UK based corporations.
As I am sure you have likely deduced from the heading above, the corporate entity we found in relation to GoodTop Shop would be Qandies Limited.
According to a CompaniesHouse report, Qandies Limited is an active corporation filed under company number 09121418.
Oddly, GoodTop.Shop did not disclose Qandies Limited as their corporate entity though.
Where we found the connection between Qandies Limited and GoodTop Shop would be on their About Us page where they disclose this following physical address: 2.27 Romer House Lewisham High Street, London, England, SE13 6EE.
When that address is searched we found it matched the corporate office address of Qandies Limited, hence the relation.
Whether Qandies Limited is truly associated with GoodTop Shop is another story since no reference to Qandies Limited can be found anywhere on their site during the time of writing this review.
Furthermore there was this following phone number: 852-66282369.
GoodTop.Shop was a privately registered domain that was acquired last month on November 5th, 2018 through the GoDaddy registrar.
According to findings found at SimilarWeb, GoodTop.Shop reflects a global rank of 33,010,731 and a US rank of 8,519,809 as of December 15th, 2018.
Given their rather poor web rankings, we do not believe GoodTop Shop to be a popular or widely sought after online retailer.
GoodTop Shop is a relatively low-key online retailer that does not receive much consumer traffic.
Fortunately we caught the GoodTop Shop scam early on because sometimes fraudulent online retailers like GoodTop Shop become viral and deceive thousands of consumers out of hundreds of dollars before getting shut down by authorities.

Is GoodTop Shop a Scam?
GoodTop Shop is a misleading online retailer that baits consumers by employing a ruthless and tactless business model.
Essentially just stealing consumers hard-earned money, it is obvious that GoodTop Shop is a scam.
Do not only yourself but others a courtesy by sharing and avoiding this deceptive scam.
Presenting their platform as a legitimate online retailer that offers staggering discounts, nothing is authentic in regards to GoodTop Shop.
Also don’t forget that GoodTop Shop failed to close any verifiable ownership information.
So if you do experience a complication with your online orders, which you likely will, then you have no means of recovering your hard-earned money unless your financial institution is capable of reversing the payment.
With these facts in mind we obviously are not advising consumers to shop with GoodTop.Shop.
Outcome: GoodTop Shop is a Scam!
Blacklisted Site: GoodTop.Shop
