Great store but returns can be tricky!

published

I have been buying stuff from Core Electronics for a few years now and have found the service to be reliable and their web site to be easy to use. I did have an issue with a brand new LoraWAN gateway that I bought and found the returns process to be a bit cumbersome in that they kept insisting that I was doing something wrong with the configuration. I did get the product returned in the end and they refunded me promptly but it felt like a bit of an ordeal and it is a minor blight in what has been otherwise a pleasant shopping experience.

Simply an awesome group of people

published

I have purchased numerous times from Core, and each and every time they have gone further than I expected. They are fast, precise, and super friendly. When you need to speak to them, they are super helpful, friendly and informative. If you need electronic components, please look no further.

Friendly order and got exactly what I needed.

published

It was an amazing place to buy from, I bought from it and got exactly what I needed. The people there were even nice enough to reach out and make sure all was well after what I had ordered came. If they have something you want to buy for a good price I would recommend buying from here.

Stock levels accurate and quick to process my order

published

They have a good range of items for projects and their website stock levels appear to be 100% accurate. Postage and shipping has been really quick every time.

They do process it that day if you get your order in in the morning. I also find that since they are in Newcastle and I am in Qld the shipping is super fast (avoids bottlenecks I assume).

I like the fact they stock DFRobot parts, which means quick access in Australia to some otherwise hard to find parts.

Their project section on the website it actually pretty useful and worth checking out.

Good fast service

published

Core is just about the only online store that I actually like getting email offers from, because they are offering things that I am interested in. The store is easy to navigate, the range is good and the quality is good. I haven't been disappointed with anything I have bought from Core.

Needed a Raspberry Pi 3 in a hurry

published

Needed a low cost Pi 3 for a project in a hurry. Checked Core Electronics web site, and able to order and get it a few days later with many other sites completely sold out.
As always expected from Core Electronics, the part arrived on time and well packaged. 30 mins later, it was installed and working.
