After all, they learned from Amazon, one of the giants in the industry. This is why the site has more than 1 million active users. 

All is not rosy and shiny on the platform though especially when it comes to user satisfaction. Users are not happy with a lot of features on the Wayfair app. 

The customer service on the app does not rate high on the satisfaction quotient along with the issues with the delivery timings. You might have to wait a long time for your products to get delivered.
