If you’ve recently stumbled upon Temu then you might find it overwhelming trying to choose the best shops to buy from.
Trust me when I say this, but their wide variety of products and affordable pricing make the platform a rabbit hole and i’ve gotten lost a number of times trying to find shops and products that are worth the buck.
Luckily there is a feature on Temu (website & app), that helps make choosing the right sellers a cakewalk and that’s the Recommended Shops section.
To help you learn how to navigate Temu to visit the recommended shops section and find out which sellers to buy from, i’ve compiled this short guide on how to find the best Temu sellers and i’ll include some of my favorite shops to buy from on Temu.
How to Find the Best Temu Sellers & Recommended Shops
How to Find and Follow Recommended Shops on Temu?
Finding recommended shops on Temu is easy thanks to the section that’s available on the homepage of the website and app labeled “recommended shops”.
While using this section, I found that it lists only the top rated shops on Temu along with some of their best selling products.
There’s even information like the total number of sales the store has made since joining Temu as well as the overall store rating, and this made it a whole lot easier to quickly choose a shop to visit.
Upon tapping on the name of the shop, I was taken to the shop’s home page where there’s an option to follow the shop or send them a message.
Clicking the follow button then added them to a favorites list that i could access at any time and find out if anything new has been added to their inventory.
To check my complete list of followed shops, I had to sign into my account and then open the Followed Shops page to pull up the entire list of shops I follow.
Guide on What to Consider When Selecting a Temu Shop to Buy From
Just like how you cautiously shop on sites like Amazon or AliExpress, it pays to be safe when purchasing things from Temu’s marketplace.
Here are a couple of things I would like to share with you before you can go ahead and buy from any random shop on Temu.
- The first thing to do is to check the store rating and see if the seller has a rating of 4.5 and above. I found some stores with a 4 – 4.5 rating to be quite decent too, but the best products, service and delivery is always provided only by those stores with a rating closer to the 5 star mark.
- Another thing I would like you to keep an eye on is the number of followers the shop has and how many items they have sold in the past since joining Temu. Look for stores with thousands of sales and a large follower count as these are generally the most reliable shops to visit.
- If they are available then I’d also recommend checking out individual shop reviews and see what their past customers have to say about their experience buying from them. Some reviews will come with images and this helped me figure out whether or not the products listed on the store are legit.
- Finally, it’s always important to reach out to the seller before making a purchase. Some sellers will have a quick turn around time whereas others will take their own sweet time to reply to a message. I found that asking questions about the products listed on their shops is the best way to go as this way I could pick out the best seller simply based on how quickly they replied or how knowledgeable they are about the products they sell.
Top Rated Shops on Temu That I Personally Liked
With over 1000+ sellers and shops listed on Temu, it’s rather difficult trying to find the best ones to buy from. This section will showcase a few of the shops I came across while using Temu that I recommend checking out.
These shops were chosen based on various factors such as how many followers they have, their shop rating and reviews as well as my personal experience dealing with them.
Lenovo Audio is probably one of the top rated stores on Temu with over 167K items sold since September 2022.
They currently stand at 4.8 stars and the best thing that I could say about this store is that the products listed here are sourced straight from the Lenovo manufacturing plant in China and the prices are to die for.
Earbuds, headphones and wireless speakers are all available for under $15 with the cheapest going for $3.30. Products are authentic and are not sold by a middleman or a third-party vendor, so warranty is included in every purchase.
Another fine shop to check out if you’re interested in home improvement products is Felicity. This seller has only around 60 products in their inventory, but the quality and pricing of these products are so good that over 186K items have been sold since the store first opened.
They specialize in storage equipment, fixtures and accessories for the bathroom and kitchen, power tools as well as personal care and even healthcare related products.
However, while going through their store I did find that the larger items are better in quality whereas the smaller trinkets they sell tend to break or get damaged in transit.
So, i’d recommend checking them out for products such as hangers, drip systems for plants, wall mounts and kitchen utensils.
The store has a decent rating of 4.6 stars and the best part is that things can be bought from here for as low as $30 along with free shipping.
Ideal for auto-freaks, this shop on Temu has everything a bike/car enthusiast needs, from keychains and windshield cleaners to decals and even tools to clean the interior and exterior of cars and bikes.
While they do have a positive rating of 4.8 stars and have sold over 252K products till date, I did feel that they could improve their inventory just a little to include at least helmets or gadgets such as mounts and dash cams.
But otherwise, the quality of the accessories they currently have up on the site is quite good and they are competitively priced, so stickers, decals and reflector strips were listed under $50 a pop, whereas the most expensive item they have is a double sided steering wheel tray that costs $25.
Probably the best makeup accessories shop I came across on Temu was Beauty Tools. This store has everything I could ever ask for especially since I love pampering my wife and what stood out about this store is that nearly half of their inventory is up on discount at almost 50% the regular price.
Beauty Tools currently has only around 200 items uploaded, but they are gradually adding more items to their inventory.
With a shop rating of 4.9 stars and over 143K products sold, it’s definitely my go-to shop for cheap makeup finds. A few of the popular items they deal with are makeup brushes, beauty blenders, jade rollers and nail art.
With Christmas around the corner, it’s a good thing that there’s a shop which deals only in Christmas items and decorating for the house.
Global Goods is a store I came across while searching for decorations for my tree and it’s definitely one of my best finds till date. The shop deals in seasonal decor for the home and kitchen as well as party supplies.
I’ve bought a couple of items from them such as chair covers, wine bottle covers and little ornaments for the tree and not one of them set me back over $5. The materials used are good quality felt and cotton and there’s free shipping so each order was a fraction of the price I would have paid if I had to order it from DHgate, Wish or AliExpress.
There’ over 350+ items to choose from and the store has a 4.99 star rating with a massive 233K sales till date.
Novo is a top rated makeup brand that’s based in China and provides great service for those on a budget. While they are no M.A.C or Huda, their products are actually quite good and safe to use.
The shop has a rating of 4.9 stars making them one of the leading makeup vendors on Temu and they’ve sold a whopping 14K products till date which is pretty impressive considering it’s makeup and not clothes or household products.
Among their 30 odd products, I personally loved their eye-shadow palette and selection of tinted lip balms which didn’t cost more than $2 – $5.
However, I’d recommend checking out individual reviews to see if any of the products lead to skin conditions as I did not face any problems with the ones I picked up.
Looking for denim apparel and jeans for women? Well then why don’t you check out Jessica Jeans? I mean, they’re the only handmade and eco-friendly jeans shop on Temu and they’re worth every cent.
Products here are not too expensive and the most you’d have to spend would be $23 for a long sleeve denim jacket.
Their jeans, jackets and skirts are quite comfortable to wear and the shop has a positive 4.7 star rating with over 13K products sold.
I’ve always been a fan of high quality streetwear and what’s better than finding a brand that’s as “Forward” as this one.
The quality of the clothes here are top-notch and there’s a lot to choose from such as hoodies, sweatshirts, and joggers. Forward has sold well over 15.8K products so far and from what I can tell, the fit is always on point as long as the size guide is followed.
Products here cost between $6 – $20 and there’s a handful of hoodies and joggers that are up on discount right now with around 40% off the original price. One of the main reasons why I chose Forward is that all their sweatshirts and joggers are in black and there’s no other color to choose from.
Do Temu Shops Offer Returns?
In short, yes, all shops on Temu offer refunds up to 90 days from the date of purchase. The policy will remain the same for all stores and you can return any item as long as it’s unused and the tags are still attached to the item.
If the product is returned in its original condition and packaging then the full refund of the order will be processed back to the source account within 7-10 days from the date the seller receives the returned item.
So, while using Temu remember that there are a mix of reliable sellers as well as new sellers that no one has heard of.
Keep the checklist in mind while searching for the best Temu sellers and don’t forget to check the shop reviews and stats before finalizing on one to buy from.
