Megabuy is a scam website
I did a Google Search to buy a WD My Book 10TB Hard Drive to match the one I already own. I got several results with Megabuy the lowest cost so I bought the product. I did not realise the Megabuy website had defaulted to a similar but different product. WD Elements 10TB Hard Drive. I received the product, realized it was not what I thought I had bought and contacted Megabuy. They will give me a refund after deducting a 25% restock cost. This is a ripoff. I am not the first person to get caught by this website defaulting to a different product and counting on the customer not to notice the difference. I think Megabuy is deliberately practicing misleading and deceptive conduct. I want to return the product for a full refund.

Caveat - Buyer beware
* Easy to navigate the store - yes
* The range of products available was acceptable - tick.
However, based on a number of terrible customer service experiences with this organisation, we have made the decision to never use them again. We are a corporate buyer and have become extremely dissatisfied with their ethics, their misleading website that describes items as in stock when they are not, and their failure to deliver orders within their advertised 1-3 days - and their appalling after-sales response to complaints. These people burn hours of y...
Navigation of the store wasnt bad. The range was really good. The quality of the products were great and the responseon my purchase to the time of the items depart from the store to my house great.

No delivery to PO Box but will take your order
Checked in their Shipping & Returns page whether a PO Box is Ok. No mention of PO Boxes. Ordered my item entering a PO Box. Accepted the order, which will be rejected at some time in the future.
I live in a rural area where ALL mail goes to the local Post Office, who receive parcels up to 100's of kilos from a range of couriers for the community.
The fact you charged me two postage charges for one order did annoy me and I nearly didn't order with you because of this. I will be unlikely to order again if this continues to be the case.
Nothing but lies
This company lies about having stock on hand, I Intensely bough outside of NSW and VIC due to the latest covid outbreaks as I am in the high risk category before ordering I contacted the store and was told all item were in stock in QLD and would come from QLD. Than after ordering I received a tracking number showing half of my order was coming from a current covid hot spots and the other half was who know where so i contacted them to find out what was happening with it to which the sales person that had no idea on what they were doing and where...my order was. After several days only half my order shows up and there system now says order sent so I rang them just to get ran around in circles again. So I say don’t waste your time with this company they lie and are hopeless its not worth the headaches.
Disappointed with stock being filtered as instock but is dropped shipped from supplier taking way to long to arrive
I used the website to find a power supply that would suit my build I used the sites inbuilt "instock" filter and found a suitable item, ordered on Monday, I am only 40min drive away... It is now late Friday and still no item..... The carrier does not know where the item is and Megabuy has not been extremely helpful at all.... Item ordered and paid for on Monday, apparently was not shipped until Wednesday and will now maybe turn up next week sometime website states 3 days delivery. Megabuy does not include the "processing" time in this 3 days..... So be aware if you order...
Unfortunately I have no confidence the item will actually turn up..
shocking after sale service
bought a Zebra 2D scanner from these people and within 2 weeks it stopped functioning properly. Zebra referred me back to Megabuy with the issue and all it is, is Zebra want me to try replacing the cable that connects the scanner to the PC. 3 weeks after contacting Megabuy with the problem, they kept asking ridiculous questions and no cable to be seen. The sort of questions they ask: Did the cable come with the scanner? What sort of cable was it? this product came from them and they don't know if the cable came with it or what sort of cable it was.. I will never ever buy anything from these people again.

I looked up a second hand Lenovo laptop for a friend on Megabuy.com.au. It had an FHD screen. The page did not state the screen was LCD. The general product description Megabuy copied from Lenovo said it was "Available with 10-point Touch Screen", so I thought the 5 years old laptop with a touch screen was a good buy for $629, so I advised my friend to buy it.
It was delivered to my address. The delivery driver dropped the box outside the door, no knocking, even though I was at home. There was no signature required, though postage insurance wa...s paid. It turned out the laptop had an LCD screen only. Since we expected a touch screen we asked for a full refund in an email, the request was declined claiming the ad stated "Available with Optional 10-point Touch Screen", but this was a lie, as you can see the "Optional" word was not in the ad. (Luckily I took a screenshot of the ad before writing to them, for the ad was still online when I received the laptop, but they deleted it immediately when they received our email.) The next day over the phone the man called [name removed] claimed the ad never said it had a touch screen (it never said it did not either) and told me many people complained and reported them to Fair Trading in the past, but nothing ever happened because they could legally display the manufacturer's general product info. HOWEVER
Price was right and product was good.
All the contacts were very good, product was recommended by staff, delivery was prompt.
Product performed great, could do with online or hard copy manual.
Just a small critic.

Performed better than expected
Spoke to the Brisbane store regarding online advertised products re description and availability (wanted to pickup from store). It seems most products are only available as online purchase. Placed order. Later received email requesting that I check my bank account for small "test" transaction as a security check which is applaudable. It would have been better if they hadn't already taken the full purchase value as well. After the security check would have been more appropriate. The following day, the order was released and to my amazement deliv...ered. First experience with Megabuy. Still would have preferred to buy from the store in person and avoid the courier and CC charge which take away most of the competitive edge. Today I am buying a SD card to go with the Samsung Galaxy Tab. From you $166, from Umart $175. Umart are transfering stock from one store to another to facilitate local pickup (without cost to customer). Please consider. Mark
Happy to take your money then just keep putting you off about delivery of goods.
Rang Megabuy and was assured that they had stock (4) of the photo scanner I wanted to buy, so ordered and paid for it....eight weeks later and many emails promising the world....NEVER GOT IT!
Nice admin staff that regularly respond to your emails, but the content is placating and never honest.
Will never order from this company again!
Good range and great prices
Easy to navigate and great range at very competitive pricing. Reasonably fast. Overall good experience. Tip for improvement; show stock levels on website and more shipping options for website purchases would be nice
No Refund and The Worst Customer Service
Purchased powerboards through the oneline store and they sent me the incorrect ones. I asked for a return and they flatly denied. They said the product may vary from image and is exactly what I ordered. It was absolutely not what I ordered and then they quickly deleted the image. This is how they make their money by stealing from people. Be aware of this company as I have noticed on other websites they do this regularly.
The guys at Chermside were extremely helpful in helping me buy a gaming monitor providing me with lots of price options whilst explaining the advantages and disadvantages of each unit. i will shop there again.
Great service. So far excellent products
I purchased a small business laptop. I was undecided between and all in one desktop or a laptop. Any questions I had about the devices were promptly answers by Megabuy. Product came within a week.
HDMI and DVI/VGA Dual-Video Docking Station
Very happy with my purchase. It was delivered within a week and has made my life easier working across multiple screens. The documentation and DVD weren't much help, but I downloaded the software with no trouble.
WARNING! Stay away from Megabuy. No refunds and no customer service. Worst experience ever!!
Received a faulty product which I could not return a day later. HP sent me an authorization letter that the product could be returned. Megabuy let me pay for the shipment myself ($43) and would refund the shipping costs. Guess what? No refund as well! I paid for the printer, the delivery and the return shipment. Their customer service communicates with incomplete names (hence why) and they constantly hide themselves behind HP. First HP has to compensate them before they will compensate me...... Even though I claimed warranty within 24 hours aft...er receipt! By far the worst experience ever. They do the uttermost just not to compensate you. They wait until you give up after months so they can keep your money and leave you with nothing. This company smells!!!! Be warned and stay away. Companies like this should not be around because in the end it is simply customer deception and theft! If you have a comparable issue with them please go to the police. Megabuy must be stopped.
Total failure to sell products online.
Account set up and item paid for in full but they refused to sent the product without verifying a tiny refund done to my account which takes days. No time!
Avoid at all costs.
Absolutely abysmal service. These guys are straight up thieves. Ordered a PC from the Megabuy website and what was delivered had the wrong processor, drives, and was completely missing the graphics card as advertised.
After hours of back and forward explaining the issue over email with great difficulty, I was told to lodge a returns claim. Days later I have heard nothing back even after following up via email.
A paypal dispute has been launched but I have no hope that this will be resolved satisfactorily. And now I am going without the PC I needed as it's in a box on the floor.
Do not go anywhere near this business, you will be robbed blind.
