  1. Despite having completed some sales with Lazada, I cannot find a website in English and all have no visual link to change language. I am now frustrated with the company and ready to close the account when possible. Emails to me are unreadable unless translated. If Lazada requires more business they need to redress this problem.

    • Sorry to hear that you are having problems; the link on top of the page should take you directly to the English version of Lazada Vietnam.

      Please try this link — and try to open it a few times in case it doesn’t work.

      Does that help?

  2. The link on this page does take you to the English landing page of Lazada VietNam.

    Unfortunately much of the rest of the website is in Vietnamese.

    But you can use for rough translations.

    Still, it is still a good excise to fly to Singapore or HongKong to shop.

  3. Hello, I’m going to Da Nang this month and I want to buy some things from Lazada. I saw that there is a Lazada store in Da Nang. Can I just walk in and buy stuff, if what I want isn’t in stock can they order for me and if the have to order can you tell me how long it usually takes for things to be delivered? Much appreciate your assistance, Thank you

    • Lazada is an on-line sales outlet. My experience with them is good (their ultimate ownership is a well-known Chinese outfit. They have no store, anywhere.

      Their website advises time to delivery for each product. They deliver anywhere couriers go – which is almost everywhere in VietNam.

      The biggest pain is having someone wait for delivery.

      And standby for a confirming SMS (English code is Answer-Pause-0-Pause-1) Pauses are 1 second. Miss the SMS and they will cancel order!
