Turns out the #1 shopping app in Google Play and the App Store right now is Temu, a Boston-based online marketplace that sells low-priced items to U.S. and Canadian shoppers.

So, how can a new online shopping megastore appear out of nowhere and suddenly beat out Amazon, Shein, and Walmart? And is it true you can get free stuff on Temu? Let’s find out.

What is Temu?

Temu is a globalized version of Pinduoduo, a billionaire Chinese e-commerce company.

Launched in late 2022, Temu is an online shopping site that hosts millions of third-party vendors who can sell incredibly cheap items due to the low manufacturing costs in China. And despite being headquartered in Boston, it's a Chinese-owned multinational commerce group with a market cap of over $120 billion.

Is Temu legit?

So, is Temu legit? Despite some negative online reviews, Temu is totally legit. The company has been verified, it’s owned by a legitimate corporation, they support secure payment methods like PayPal and Apple Pay, and they have many different security measures in place.

And while their products are real, and you will eventually receive them, they might not look exactly like what you ordered, which would explain their TrustPilot average three-star review.
