Daraz.pk SPAMs its Customers Ruthlessly, and There is No Way of Opting Out!

Have you ever bought anything from Daraz? Yes, even just once in your life? Then there are chances that you are bombarded with SPAM emails and text messages almost round the clock.

Daraz apparently spams each and every email address available to them with endless promotions that are usually irrelevant. As mentioned above, they don’t end there as your phone is also spammed with text messages at every possible odd hour of your day.

Interestingly, there is no way of opting out from these emails and promotional text messages, which you never subscribed in the first place. The un-subscribe link in the mail simply won’t work while we don’t have a way of opting out of their SMS subscriber list.

There is no way of opting out from these emails and promotional text messages, which you never subscribed in the first place. Even calling their support doesn’t help

The worst of all, repetitive requests at their support number won’t help either, we have checked. Hence there is no possible way of opting out from such spam and unfortunately you can’t take them to court as well since there’s no cyber law available in Pakistan yet.

By doing this Daraz is essentially standing in-line with local plumbers or rent-a-car walas, who use email and SMS marketing to run their kitchens.

Its a shame that World’s renowned companies, when doing business in Pakistan, forget all the ethics and business rules that they practice in western markets. But let me assure you, by doing this SPAM in a ruthless manner, you are only going to lose customers, instead of retaining them.

If you have been a victim of Daraz’s SPAM, then go ahead and share your thoughts in below comments!

  • I have tried to un-subscribing and it says You have been unsubscribed from our newsletter
    Lets see if I still get their newsletter.

  • Lets report this to Google. They have very strict policy for spammers, they will struck down their site from index. :-)

  • Mr. Salman Qamar has suggest the correct thing.

    create rules. & send it to specific folder skipping inbox.

    supported in gmail , yahoo & hotmail.

    Mr. Amir you must have added a suggestion like this & create a new post” how to filer promotional messages by creating filters in email.”

  • Just Pathetic and nauseating…they are the worst spammers ….and I have also tried to call their support but useless response….only reason I have stopped buying anything from them..

  • we recieve thousands of spam e-mails from abroad but no issue…. but only issue is with our own local brand….!!

  • It’s not only limited to Daraz.pk, every other vendor of any kind you visit and provide your cell phone no (email) to, will always send you these spam messages. There’s no customer consent in this regard.

  • Same here, they always give successful message on unsubscribe and then received another news letter…..wtf is this ?

  • I am also a victim of this bullshit, I created spam filter for daraz.pk and also reported to google as its a spam.

  • yes i am a victim…and you are right in that way they are only gonna lose their potential customers ….

  • main aj hi apne mobile se fazool SMS delete kar raha tha and when deleting a lot of SMS from Daraz.pk i was thinkin the same as how can I unsubscribe from them. I even never bought anything from them. Can PTA help us?

  • The awkward moment when I am anxiously waiting for an sms from someone special, my phone rings and I am expecting she has responded, everything is fucked up when you know that the sms is from Daraz.pk

  • Not only Daraz, Dealtoday, Foodpanda and the likes all do this. Their unsubscribe buttons do not work. I have reported all of them as SPAM after trying to unsubscribe multiple times. On their SMS’s I am going to make a complain to PTA as well.

  • I wanted to unsubscribe daraz.pk and clicked on un-subscribe at the end of the email (Outlook) when Outlook replied that daraz.pk has not defined any way to unsubscribe. But Outlook offered me to block all newsletters originating from their newsletter address.

  • They’ve lost me already. I’ve blocked them. God they are so irritating they won’t leave me on phone. I hate them for doing this.

  • so am I :( I feel i made a huge mistake of purchasing from them. Now they won’t leave me till i die or change my number.

  • BC Daraz walo ghalti hogayi thi purchase kar lia.. ayenda nahi karengay maaf kardo!!

    I hope Daraz guys read this and feel shameful know that you guys are pathetic I hate you guys. I’d never buy from you again.

  • Muje bhi daily emails ati hain. pta nahi kahan say meri email id ka pata chala inko..mene kuch bhi nhi buy kiya per manhoos daiy email bhej dete hain.

  • Seriously !! fedup of their spam Ads in my gmail… I wonder I never subscribed or checkin for any buying or selling on site but still it keep sending me spams… do they sumhow get the email id ? of guest user logged in on other browser on any account ??

  • Daraz, Kaymu, Lamudi and Carmudi, all are companies under one umbrella and take full advantage of spamming. They have got Millions in investment but using cheap tactics of marketing.

  • u can call it spam but we call it promotions…. as the nature of business is ecommerce. if you have 20,000+ products on ur website then i think there is no wrong in doing promotions through emails.
    secondly whenever you place an order there it ask that if u want us to send you promotions and updates
    so stop proving urself as a pro idiot

  • My Daraz account has been hacked in Pakistan and there is home delivery with shippment without my Knoweldge plz help me

  • Not to mention the Spams where random sites with ads just Open it, And the Virus that used to attach itself to Computers. All buy Those Morons. If Cyber Police Stood for Anything They would have Taken down the Site already Just for infecting so many Computer Browsers with Viruses. Alas!!!
