I ordered online 3 items and 2 items came in the mail 1 that was correct and one completely different to what I ordered. There was no packing slip and the shoes that were wrong even still had the security tag on them. I rang up and had expressed my issue, customer service sent me a barcode to send them back and said once they were sent they would have my correct order sent express straight away. Well I sent the wrong order back straight away after I was sent the barcode. That was on Friday at lunch time. It's been a week and not only has the ri...ght order come there was no correspondence. I rang up and was told the couldn't do anything because they had a computer program problem and whenever that was fixed they would ask the warehouse to send it so I'll probably be waiting another week. They said they couldn't do anything for me and I was met with an attitude of pretty much quoted 'bad luck'. This is disgusting I will never be shopping with city beach again because they dont care less about their customers and just Tried to defend their warehouse staff for there major stuff up in stead of trying to sort out my order and dissatisfaction with the whole experience. They 30min phone call ended with absolutely no resolve and I am still at square one. Save yourself the headache and shop with the other competitor that puts their customers first.
NO EMAIL CONFIRMATION
I can see that many others have written recently, I placed an order on the 4th of May and 2 days later I still have not received a confirmation email. The status of my order also says "order completed" yet I have not received my items so I do not understand how the order could be completed. I reached out to customer service yesterday but am still yet to receive a reply. I understand that COVID-19 has caused many problems but an automated confirmation email should not take over 24 hours, let alone 48 hours.
Ordered and paid for products 2 days ago and yet to receive an email acknowledgement - though online it shows that my order is "complete". I understand there are some delivery delays because of COVID19, but surely an automated response shouldn't be delayed too? I emailed customer service to follow up yesterday and am yet to get a reply. First and last time online customer, that's for sure!
Poor communication, wrong address
Ordered two items on the 22nd of April and even retyped my address, surprise suprise, I get a tracking log putting my old address (could have been autofill playing up although I manually changed it). Called citybeach they told me to change it with Australia post (covid19 made that impossible) so naturally wasn't returned (wasn't citybeach fault). Anyway, tried to call them about resending or refunding, rung out twice, emailed them, 1 week and still no response.
Worst customer service. Never buying from citybeach again.
I purchased on 12th of April and I opted for items to be express posted to me. On the 20th of April I reached out after I received no correspondence as to where my parcel was, on that afternoon of the 20th Of April I received an email stating one of the items I purchased was not in stock.
After many requests for someone to contact me regarding this then take me off their mailing list, I received the remainder of my order (on the 23rd of April) and have not received any correspondence regarding my displeasure with this purchase only emails about sales that are on.
So I wait almost 2 weeks for City Beach to dispatch my order, their explanation - “I can see our team are just awaiting stock of a couple of your items. Once these items have been retrieved your order will be sent out as soon as possible.”
After 3 weeks, my parcel arrives with 2 of the 7 items still missing?!? Items that I PAID for!!!
Their customer service has been shocking to say the least and now after waiting so long I didn’t even get what I ordered!
City Beach management - what’s your excuse? Is this what you call service?! Where is my money - or items I purchased?!
11 days after I payed for my order I’m sent a email saying my order has been canceled and the warehouse team can’t even say why. Shop elsewhere I know I won’t shop there ever again.
Constantly out of stock
Constantly out of stock, Santa Cruz socks, even though advertising 10 available on ebay, and stock available on website. Have tried ordering twice...wont bother anymore.
“Regrettably, our stock levels are not live and can still reflect stock being available for up to 24 hours after the product has sold out.
We do receive stock in 5 days a week so it is very likely that we will receive it back in. Although I cannot give an exact time as to 'when' it will be back in stock, the best thing we can suggest is to check back with us every so often to see if the item has been restocked. “

Mooloola - Absolutely Beautiful!
Stunning quality! Beautiful fabric! Flawless stitching.
I was actually SATISFIED with with the item, the design, and with that I paid.
A favourite of mine now and forever, thank you! (Double high-five!)
Not the best
I last went to the Watertown store in Perth and found a top in the sale section with a $19 sale sticker on it. When I went to purchase said top, the girl scanned the label and it came up as $34.95. She tried to tell me that was what the price was meant to be so that's what I should pay. I usually dislike speaking up about these things but I really wanted the top and so said I would be paying $19 or I'd just leave it because it was in the sale section with a sale sticker attached. She then questioned whether I actually found it in the sale secti...on or not. Like sorry but It's not the customers fault that your staff incorrectly priced an item and put it out on the sales floor. She eventually put it through at $19 but I think she just couldn't be bothered with it and wanted to move me on as quickly as possible. Another gripe is the swimsuit sizes - a size 12 top is more like a size 8, I am by no means large but I was spilling out of every top I tried. Because of these things I tend to avoid City Beach in favour of more affordable shops with better range of sizes.
I ordered a pair of home brand ugg boots in December. In less than 3 months the soles started coming off the boots. When I contacted customer service I was advised that they were out of warranty! Very disappointing, I think the soles of anything should last longer than 3 months. Not to mention it was summer so rarely worn, and not worn outside.
Have spent 540 just last month and bought discounted z_flex cruiser and they then said they couldn't provide at all
I didn't receive due to their error and I'd made plans already for my new skateboard which has left me super depressed, and they couldn't even try get me another
Bad customer service
Went in City Beach store in Townsville and as i was walking into the changing room and there’s one male staff had a good look at my face and the two tops I picked and afterwards I decided to buy one top and leaving the other top in the changing room and the same male staff stopped and gave me a dirty look for couples of seconds Without saying anything thinking I stole the other top. Then i stopped and said to him that the other top is in the changing room. This is such a poor customer service. And on top of that he didn’t even greet me when I walked in the shop. He looked at me with no smile and walked away.
Exchange/refund process terrible
The exchange/refund process is bad. I was refunded 90% of what I paid for 2 items after returning them. No email or communication either on why it was 90% not 100%. I only noticed it from looking at my credit card statement. I can't be bothered ringing customer service and going through the merry go round to find out either I just want to be done with the process. The actual items are great if you get them and in the right size
Excellent customer service
I spoke with Lachlan at the Harbour town store Gold Coast. He gave me accurate advice and I'm very satisfied with purchase. Very happy with my buying experience. Will definitely buy here again.
I am so incredibly happy with my purchase!!! I ordered the Lexii boots on sunday, paid for normal postage, NOT EXPRESS, and got them on Tuesday! only two business days, i'm so impressed!!!
Wrong size delivered
Delivered the wrong size.
When calling City Beach, customer service lady was condescending and refused accountability.
Kept telling me it was my fault, when I had evidence that it was not.
Rude Rude Rude
Shipping time: perfect! Quality of clothes: appauling
Purchased a pair of Tommy Hilfiger Tights for $90 and the quality of them is atrocious! They are transparent in the back without having the need to bend down. Very disappointing
Worst Customer Service!
Faulty Fossil watch took 11 weeks to replace under warranty with City Beach when Fossil themselves could have sorted it in 1 week. This company have no idea how to service their customers. Their Returns Department are complete idiots. They just gave me the Fossil tracker info to use myself when they couldn't be bothered to get an update themselves. They said - "we don't have the replacement". Fossil said "City Beach signed for it 2 days ago" What joke. Someone there hates their job. Management don't give a crap. Complete idiots.

Ordered a almost parodies dress for my partner. It’s was only worn once an she got two holes in the seams an shrunk after the first wash. We are finding this happening more an more with city beach products. After the amount of money we are paying for the product you think it’ll would be a lot better quality. I was spending approx 200 month on mad Huey shirts. Tho I’m finding BFC is giving me better selection an better products so if your a male an want good Huey gear head there now over city beach. An the girls anywhere others then city beach.
Questions & Answers
Hi I was just wondering if anyone didn't receive a confirmation email but still got their order?
Hi Trinity, I'm yet to get mine. I spoke to and Customer service today and she told me their systems had been down since Friday so there would be delays getting the emails. I got an email late today to say they are processing... So it's a waiting game. In saying that, placed an order with platypus a day after city beach... And I got that parcel today.
Are the jeans stretchy and is a 14 big or tight fit
