Upressor.com Review (& Plexlate.com)

Upressor.com is a trending and minimalist shopping website selling furniture, such as tables, beds, recliners, sofas, etc.

Its web address upressor.com looks legit, however there’s no such word in English as Upressor, and this name doesn’t appear to suit a furniture shop in our opinion…

Preliminary Checks

Let’s move on and do some basic checks. We run a Whois on the domain and find it was registered in April 17, 2021, just 2.5 weeks before this review is written.

It was registered for just one year, which is a red flag. A serious company would probably go with a longer registration period. Scammers know that in one year from now this domain will not be worth anything anyway thanks to reviews sites such as ScamFinance.com.


Now, we’re ready to visit the website.

We notice the connection is secure and the people behind Upressor did set an SSL certificate. However, they chose a free Let’s Encrypt certificate which hides ownership information.

Not a good sign…

At least your data is safe from any third parties, but can you trust Upressor?

Let’s move on and see who are the people who work for this company and where they are located…

Unfortunately, no information is provided in the About Us and Contact Us pages. Not even in the Privacy Policy and the Terms of Service documents.

The only contact detail provided is an email: hoffpa244hoffpaverge@gmail.com.

The terms of service documents however says that their services “shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of UK” and that this “website is operated byplexlate.com.” [sic]

What is byplexlate.com? There’s no such website, however, we did find a plexlate.com, which looks exactly like upressor.com, indicating both sites are operated by the same owner.

Both sites also have the same registration date and registrar (NameSilo, LLC).

Sometimes we’re not even sure which domain we’re on. For example, read this excerpt from their About Us page: (Emphasis not in original.)

That’s why in plexlate.com you will find a custom collection for every profession, hobby, sport, passion or anything you might think of. So whatever you’re looking for, we plan to have it there for you. And if it’s not, then hit us up and let us know, so we can negotiate or produce the best deal for you in no time. We are and would like to be here for YOU for a lifetime. Whatever you need, it’s right here on upressor.com.

Reputable businesses provide legitimate contact information. With Plexlate and Upressor not only that we are not provided with a telephone number and address (or even a company name), the email address is from a free provider (gmail).

When we try to make a purchase using PayPal, the owners’ real email address is revealed: isabeli@simapkin.co.uk.

They have buttons linking to social networks (Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter), however, they are not linked to any specific pages or profiles on those networks.

Errors on the website are also very bad signs indicating a possible scam since legitimate shopping sites go through an editing process. Notice for example that part of the labels are uppercase (e.g., ABOUT US, TERMS OF SERVICE) and some have only the first letters of each word in uppercase (e.g., Return/Refund Policy, Privacy Policy).

They also left some placeholders. For example, one widget on their page says: “Use this text to share information about your brand with your customers.”

And there’s a dysfunctional menu item which says “New Arrival,” when you would expect it to say “New Arrivals.”

The About Us page has many more errors, such as:

At upressor.com. we love every passion and interest on Earth because it is a reference to your UNIQUENESS. And to spread exactly that…is our core vision: To help you Express Yourself. To support you at upressor.com. Since we know you want all sorts of custom products, we got you covered with highly professional suppliers and production houses that we keep in close contact with and vet daily so that they fulfill our intense selection process.

With “Free Shipping Worldwide” in the case of Upressor and “Free shipping in the US” in the case of Plexlate, and with prices that are way too good to be true (such as products worth $700 sold for $50)…

…Always remember there’s truth in the old saying that if something seems too good to be true, it probably is.

The products themselves seem to have been taken from other websites. For example, one of the products listed is called Twin Platform Storage Bed Wood Bed Frame with Two Drawers and Headboard, White. Searching Google for an excerpt from the product description reveals it was taken from wayfair.com.

As for payment methods, they claim to offer PayPal as a payment method. If that is correct, then it’s good news for people who may have been scammed by them. If you don’t get your product, you can file a dispute with PayPal and get your money back.

Never use non-secure payment methods, such as wire, bank or international funds transfers, money orders, pre-loaded gift cards, and cryptocurrency like Bitcoin, with such obscure websites.

Finally, we would like to mention that high pressure sales tactics are a sign of scam. In this website a “flash sale” widget is used on some “discounted” products where a ticking clock counts down the minutes you have to respond to the offer. Don’t worry. Use a different browser or clear your cookies, and the timer resets.
