Review of Glasshous: A Glasshous Review for the People
In our Glasshous review, we cover everything from their customer support to their aesthetics to their packaging methods. While at first glass the site appears to be professionally made, it's apparent that the content is thin at best and is a poor knockoff of the larger, more popular online headshop Billowby. The poorly made graphics (and believe us, there's a ton of them!) slow down their WordPress site tremendously allowing for a less-than-stellar browsing experience.
What's even going on in this image? An astronaut?!
Their product selection is mediocre at best as they have a handful of pipes and vaporizers -- pretty much the same ones that most other online headshops have. While we were browsing their site, we found many of their products out of stock and no sign of when they might come back into stock. The images of the pics are pretty large and well-taken but overall we weren't impressed by the selection of products that Glasshous offered. Especially not compared to sites like Billowby
. In this Glasshous review, we've go to give them a 3 out of 10 for product selection.
Purchase Experience and Customer Support
After browsing the small amount of products listed on Glasshous.com, we finally purchased a simple pipe to see how the rest of the process went. The checkout flow was solid, albeit a little bit clunky, and we were charged shipping fees. We bought the shipping price that said we'd get our order in after waiting a good while. The product came in and though it was poorly wrapped, it was an overall okay experience. Fortunately for us, we did not have to contact their customer support so we can't really commit on that for now. For this Glasshous review, we give them a 5 out of 10 for their purchase experience.
Glasshous' Shipping Policies and Packaging
Like most online headshops, Glasshous offers pretty generic shipping policies as well as discrete shipping ... so that's good. In this Glasshous review, we give them a 8 out of 10 for these policies.
Site Speed for this Glasshous Review
Probably the most annoying part of the Glasshous shopping experience is their very slow site speed. Because of their large and clunky images, it sometimes takes seconds for a page to load. While this might not be the worst thing for some Glasshous reviews, we've found it to be a terrible shopping experience and will probably not shop their again because of this.
Final Thoughts for this Glasshous Review
While Glasshous is definitely better than some of the other sketchy headshops online, due to their site speed and their poor selection of products, we at the College of Cannabis cannot recommend Glasshous to anyone. Perhaps if they redeveloped the site and offered more products we'd be more inclined to shop there, but as it is, we're done with this Glasshous review.
