No customer support - Did not care - Do not recommend
After three conversations with Oroton and 2 weeks still waiting for my order to arrive. I thought if I ordered well ahead of birthdays I would have the products in time. I was just told garbage by Oroton Staff to make me happy. One promised the items would be sent out 5 business day after I ordered them.. Well It was over 5 business days, The next said they would be posted Monday as they knew I needed them for gifts... They were not posted and no one cared. Customer support and service is a ZERO. Has turned me off ever placing orders with them again. Good way to reduce sales... NO CARE - Do not recommend
Dishonest and poor customer service
I saw a bag I liked online, I wanted to see it in person so went to my local store and purchased. Did not realise that I was charged a different price. When I contacted customer service, they agreed to refund me difference on price, then they changed their mind. They then said they would issue a credit note for goods to purchase online. Tried to use online and didn’t work. Contacted them twice to advise that code not working, no reply. I am now an ex Oroton customer. Shame really as I was a loyal and long time customer. Prices in store are different to online. Not sure why.
Beware returns policy
Don’t be fooled and buy online. You will end up with a credit note if you need to return anything that can only be used online, not in store, so you’ll end up paying a fortune on freight. Go into the store and buy what you can see. Their website is deceiving, the colours are all wrong.
Wear and tear....really?
I purchased a medium sized handbag. There were three sizes available in the style I liked, however they all had the same sized shoulder strap and same sized hardware attached to the bag to hook the strap to. Obviously, the medium and large were greater in capacity so required different, larger hardware and larger straps and I did notice the anomaly at the time of purchase but because I liked the style, I bought it anyway. I had the bag for 3 years and only used it, at most, a dozen times because fortunately I have other bags to use. In any eve...nt, I never overloaded the bag, but the hardware pulled out of the bag's sides. On referring the matter to Customer Service, I was told "wear and tear" because I had bought it 3 years before. In fact, it had received very little "wear and tear". Such a poor response to a genuine fault issue with the manufacture. I was not requested to bring the bag into a store for assessment. Nevermind, I got the hardware replaced and a new strap at my own cost. Strap looks so much better than the original one. Incidentally, the bag repairer I used, confirmed the issue to be a manufacturer fault. Disappointed with Oroton's "brush-off". No longer support Oroton.
Cassia Texture Medium Shoulder Bag
I have received the bag however I’m not happy with the Gold, it’s tarnished. And bent.
the bag isn’t worth the money. The hard ware looks terrible, very disappointed.
I will return the bag.
Worst product and even worse cs
The brand has the worst customer service. Save your money for a bigger brand instead if you’re going for luxury. I ordered a bag and I was extremely disappointed in the quality. The handle and the logo suggested that bag has been used and then sold to me as new!
My Oroton bag. Leather peeling off. Crack all over in the bag.
I bought the office leather bag. Only used 5 times. I stored in my linen cabinet. No sunlight and cover in the Oroton store bag. Recently talk it out to use it again for my meeting. Found out the bag is cracked and leather is peeling off. Disappointed as the bag was over $500.
Got there in the end!
I originally bought a bag, which flipped open and tipped forward, resulted in everything falling out, each time I used it. I called to find out how to get a refund... but was told the bag would only be accepted for a full refund if in new, wrapped and unused condition. I explained that I couldn’t possibly know the bag would flip open on use, if I hadn’t used it. After much arguing, I asked for a Manager. The bag was finally refunded in full, and I then found they’d come out with a similar one - but which works perfectly... so I bought that one instead. Didn’t need the hassle, Oroton. Your products are great, but your customer care? Not so much!
Products are not well made
In the past two years two products I have purchased from Oroton were defective after 9 months use. A leather makeup case which is gorgeous the zipper broke within the first year. Oroton sourced out another one and exchanged it. Traveled around the word with the second replacement and after 6 months the zipper broke again. They didn't sell this make up case anymore and offered to give me a credit note, I didn't want a credit note because I loved the case so much. I found a very reputable bag repair company and they sourced out a brand new zipp...er and replaced it, it cost me $100 as it needed to be hand sewed. Their umbrella the large one with a wooden handle only used twice broke after trying to pull it down. It dis-attached from the top hence not being able to close again they don't stock the pretty cool pink colour anymore. Very disappointing. When their products were made in Australia they were very high quality unfortunately they are not made like that today. I gave Oroton another chance after having issues with their merchandise in the 2000's but yet again an epic fail.
Questions & Answers
I have a very old oroton handbag (my favourite) but the colour (reddish) has faded and showing real signs of wear (reminder it is old). I have not used it for a few years but do so want to again. Can the bag be dyed to get a nice all over colour? If so, where can I get this done or can I do it myself. I live in NZ but bought the bag from Australia. Many thanks. Paulette
Can my oroton handbag from about 20 years ago (havent been used!) be wiped/applied with leather oil that is used by leather repair shops? Is it ok to first wash the bag with soap and water?
