Still waiting for them to ship my boots and nobody answers the email sent!
I ordered a pair of boots last week, and they still haven't shipped! I tried to contact them but nobody answers...
Not sure if it was a scam... they took my money but still no news from them!
My order is number #356597
I would think it twice before buying from them.
Worse Shopping Experience
I ordered 2 pair of boots in my normal size and they were too small so I contacted customer service. They said to get a full size up. Then the second lot of boots arrived and were too big! $86 out of pocket in shipping to return 2 different boot orders and then get charged for the shipping of incorrect sizing! Still waiting for my refund and the items have been back at this company for 10 days! Every time I ring I am told that it will be done and I will get an email notification of my refund. I ask to speak to a manager and they are never available. This is the worst online shopping experience I have ever had and I will never shop with this company again. AVOID THIS COMPANY!
Avoid this company at all costs
Our order took almost a month to arrive despite calling them on several occasions And only came when we said we were cancelling. Boots didn't fit and now waiting for 6 weeks for a refund and again no response to our complaints.
Dont buy from brand house if you want delivered in a reasonable timeframe
22nd May 2020 ordered
Delivered 1st June.
Now I am 60 years old I have worked out what size I take. 11.5 in joggers and in thongs a 12.
Thier sizing chart is wrong.
Usually a size12, on arrival far too small not even near it so returned for a size 13 these just fit
(Scholl Sonoma thongs)
Should have bought a size 14 but I am not going through this again.
Never take a size13 in my life.
Note, the product looks alright.
But this outfit does not make them,...
Ordered a pair of slippers, size was too small. Paid postage to have them returned. Waited 4 weeks for another similar pair to arrive, which I was not able to wear with the arch support. Called them and was advised I would have to pay to ship them back again and also pay for them to be shipped back. I asked if I could bring them in and pick up a new pair from their warehouse, but was advised no. So basically my $60 slippers will now be costing close to $100. Will never trade with this company again. Also after reading so many poor reviews, I'm most surprised how they have remained in business and disappointed I did not see these prior to ordering.
Worst customer service
I bought a pair of comfort shoes (Alegria Glee) from Brand House on order #329004.
I’m a nurse. After the first day of wearing them, I experienced very sore spots on my left foot, including red broken skin. This was due to a manufacturing defect. They were just too painful to continue wearing.
I have asked for a full refund as these are unfortunately not fit for purpose. I have been emailing and calling Brand house customer service multiple times. No one has responded my emails.
I tried calling over a 2 week period, and nobody ever got back to me. The last time I got hung up on. I would like to add I was never rude or aggressive while on the phone, just annoyed I was kept in the dark.
Customer service never reply
Their customer service is very poor, as the shoes are a size too small, I am always a 7, but with this I need an 8 as the sizes are very narrow and small. The process of a simple exchange is too painful and time consuming. I had faster responses and easier exchanges from overseas companies who exceeded my expectations and always put customers first. I will never deal with Brand House Direct. My only hope to stop the payment from Afterpay for a product which is not what is not as the advertising.
3 weeks and nothing dispatched
Ordered some merrell shoes on 21st August 2030, after 8 days rang customer services , oh they take 8 dayd to come from watehouse we will get back to you,
Sent an email to the paypal registeted email address no response, payment taken out on day of order
Rang again today 21 days out, “ we will have to look into it”,
Getting to the point if requesting a refund.
On line shopping was to be tge saviour of lock down, this experience is not good.
Dispatch problems for me as well
Same as Graham Rogers. Took a week to find my shoes in the warehouse and only after I sent 2 emails, both unanswered, and called them do I get an email confirming dispatch, I reckon they woke the guy up today. Not sure with covid delays we need to wait 5 days for dispatch on top. Also I submitted a kindly worded review on their website which was taken down after 5 mins..... Pointing out that the website claims free standard delivery in Aust, but they charge u 13 bucks at checkout. They only appear to like 5 star ratings, how convenient. You guys need to take fair criticism as well.
Return of shoes too small
Due to Covid19 most retailers were closed so I thought I'd buy a pair of shoes online from an Australian business. I don't usually buy shoes online because I'd like to try them on. I am having a terrible experience with Brand House Direct. Their customer service is nothing to boast about, as the shoes are a size too small, even though I am always a 7, it looks like I need an 8 for this shoes! The process of a simple exchange is too painful and time consuming. I had faster responses and easier exchanges from overseas companies who exceeded my expectations and always put customers first. I will never deal with Brand House Direct.
6 business days to dispatch.
Only order if you can wait and wait and wait!!! No option for express post for obvious reasons!!! It took 6 business days for this company to put my shoes in a box and create a postage label. So slow!!! I got a slow response when I asked about shipping so I will never order from this slow and unhelpful company. [name removed] said "expect dispatch in 4-8 business days from our Melbourne warehouse". I couldn't find anything about dispatch times, just delivery times which stated 5-7 business days for delivery not dispatch. Shoes I received are as advertised. Brand House Direct were sadly very disappointing but Aus post did a great job despite parcel volumes!
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
2 WEEKS AND NOTHING!
I ordered a pair of Doc Martens 2 weeks ago and I Have not received anything. I have called three times with the first two calls ensuring me it would be sent by COB that day, after 7 business days on my third call they 'checked with the warehouse', i then received an email saying they were mistaken and it would take 8 Days max. ( I then saw this in the fine writing under the description so fair enough) however extremely poor customer service for the first two calls promising other wise?
so i waited, have sent 5 emails to and from and still hav...
Hopeless.. shocking customer service
Terrible service.. canceled order but they still sent package. I delivered to Post Office return to sender.. but brandhouse wanted me to pay return post costs. What a joke of a company.. shocking service. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
Deceptive product reviews- their system seems to not accept or publish less that 4 or 5* ratings.
I just tried to leave genuine feedback for 2 pairs of shoes that I had just received and it seems that Brandhouse Direct's review system will not accept below 4 star ratings! I then realised that, ,up until now ALL the feedback on this site, on all their shoes is nothing less than 4-5 stars! ... how is that even possible?
When I raised this with Brandhouse Direct, they stated that " not all reviews are 5 stars" .... and it appears that a small percentage of 4 stars has also been allowed/filtered through.
This is misleading and deceptive conduct, buyers are influenced by feedback and we expect it to be genuine and NOT filtered and misleading!
I bought 2 clark's school shoes, a black and white from this website. I was told it will reach in 2-5 business days. Plenty of time before school starts. I kept on contacting them as I saw the items were not being dispatched. I called up and they assured it will be delivered the Friday before school starts. Guess what, it din't reach. I had to buy both shoes from the local shop. And then the next week I got half of the order and my order tracking was updated as delivered when actually not everything was delivered. I emailed a couple of times an...d finally got a message saying that is not available. I asked for a refund. It's been more than 2 weeks and still nothing. I told that I don't need the black shoes either as I had to buy it locally and they din't keep the delivery date promised. No response for that either. I would never buy from these people again. I am going to raise a complaint with ACCC
The worst online retail site I've ever used
I've been shopping online for nearly 25 years, never have I used something so poorly designed. There is no customer account to check on the progress of your sale or return, the phone number is never answered, the online chatbot is woeful. No-one can give you any information at all. Absolutely abysmal, if i could give it 0 stars I would.
Terrible customer service
After numerous attempts to contact Brand house direct, I received a “holding” email saying they were contacting supplier.
Followed up a week after the holding email by email and phone, phone line just cuts out after a couple of rings.
I’ve been duped off nearly $90.00
I am always a size nine in sketchers
I have lots of different pairs of sketches and they are fantastic
These shoes fit horribly
Too tight and uncomfortable and not long enough
Scholl shoes poor quality
Scholl shoes appear to be not same as shoes from store.Cheaply made with no or little arch support .Will not be buying from Brand direct again.They are very hard on the sole of your feet
Never never never again
Note similar post on google review - mine wouldn't load there.
Ordered 2 Jan (same day as other post)
9 Jan i rang to inquire, since there was no dispatch, and they advertise 1-4 days.
the 1300 number sent me to a disconnected number with a FULL message bank. my stress levels went through the roof. The landline number listed, also disconnected.
So, i thought i'd been scammed.
Eventually got a chat line, no apologies, she??? thought 9 Jan minus 7 Jan = 4 days.
Got boots today (11 days). Rubbish, rubbish
Haven't even received them yet so how can I review them. Postage way too expensive with no reward for loyalty unless you purchases again very quickly. How many shoes do we need?
comfy shoes but bad contact.
Finally received my 2 pairs of shoes and was happy with them
BUT No Emails or any contact to tell me when my shipment was to be very unprofessional company .
Sizes were way smaller than normal. Boxes came badly damaged and guess what, I can't return them now!
Bought 2 pairs and both were fails and I am so displeased about this website. I do shop regularly online and found their products to be disappointing
Pair 1 was a present for. Christmas. The box was almost falling apart so I threw it away and wrapped them up. They didn't fit.
Pair 2 was for me. I ordered my normal sized shoe I couldn't even get my feet into the sandal. I asked about possibly getting an exchange or refund and I can't. My sister who is 3 sizes smaller than I fit them perfectly. Weird right???
pool quality and faked brand
Purchased a pair of shoes from their website and take more than 5 days delayed and then arrived.
Only put on the shoes for half days the products just have problems.
Wrote to them you won't get any quick reply. Ring them and they said you worn the shoes and can not return the products. The customer service is pretty bad. 30days return policy is a not applicable to this one and appears a job. As their explanation is 30 days return policy is not applicable( their excuse is after wearing, you can use return policy.) The product is really of poor quality represents the service I received.
The products itself does not worth too much money but the time and energy I spent, and, bad service made me disappointed and exhausted.
Disappointing service response regarding poor quality shoes
I ordered four pairs of shoes order #288990, time frame from ordering and delivery was good. I wore one pair the next day to work and a section of the heel broke off on both shoes. I informed the company that evening and their response today was: "Thanks for getting in touch with us and sorry to hear this - if you take this pair to your local shoe repairer he will be able to fix this for you." Unfortunately based on that response I cannot recommend this company, nor will I purchase from them again.
I have a second pair of shoes from the same manufacturer so I will see have they hold up when I wear them.
I wore another of the delivered shoes today (different manufacturer) and they were comfortable and remain intact.
