Great Service, Great Quality fast shipping!
These guys were great to work with, I've order up to $1000 worth of stuff with them and the service was superb, the quality of the products are as of expected and it arrived safely and moderately fast!!! A+
On more than one occasion I have bought an item and a week later they refunded my money with no explanation.

Incompetent with inaccurate information on their own stock
I spent a few weeks making sure I had the right parts for my order, (especially the BIOS being upgraded to be compatible with CPU) Customer service reassure it's updated, when I receive the order the motherboard is still on the release F1 Bios, and it's nearly bricked. Didn't acknowledge they screwed up.
Excellent product and service
I purchased this through shopping express as I've made many purchases through them before and have been very happy each time. Nvidia as far as I am aware didnt sell this in Australia till recently and have seen great things about it. There was meant to be a delay in delivery but to my surprise it arrived a couple of days later. To say I'm happy with it is an understatement. If u want an all in 1 device for making your TV a really smart TV then this is it. It certainly lives up to all the hype about it. This review isn't being paid for and I ha...ven't been asked to write the review, but if nvidia are seeing this I'm not against receiving gifts etc. Lol. But seriously if you want a device that does all your streaming, gaming and video playback then this is it. The play store is limited but if u look online or YouTube you can find workarounds. As for shopping express, I can't rate them any higher. As per other reviews, I'm fully aware that there can be hiccups now and then with processing orders etc, but with all my experience with these guys, I can't complain. Will return again for future purchases.

Stop using Fastway!
Shopping Express is a good site/store, I bought what I wanted easily, website is easy to use and love your cheap prices. Would be a 5 star review but I Gave 1 star because they use a crappy postal service. Fastway is a joke, please switch to Aus post. Fastway advertises "am pick to pm delivery" in Sydney. My parcel was picked up within the same day, but according to their online tracking it was delivered between 3 Sydney depots over 3 days. So, I was forced to call them on the fourth day and they finally put in a request for urgent delivery. I ordered the same PC piece from PC case gear and it came from Melbourne faster than my delivery with Fastway.
Good Price and Product BUT!!
The product and price were great; however, after the abysmal service from their FASTWAY courier - 8 days delay from consignment in Sydney to attempted delivery in Canberra - I would buy elsewhere in future.
Totally agree that they are incompetent, not to mention blatant thieves. They will steal 15% off you if you want to return an item. 15%. For what. Illegal and immoral. They should be put out of business immediately.
Good prices but everything else lacking
Good prices but it ends there really.
Sensitive products shipped loose in a box banging around - why not 50 cents of bubble wrap?
Emails ignored even when trying to do a bulk order of something (doesn't give me confidence if anything went wrong).

Prices are great. Slow to ship, and use Australia's worse courier service
Searched around for what I wanted to buy, and Shopping Express had the best price, by a small margin. If I had known at the time that they'd be using Fastway as their courier, I would have shopped elsewhere. Doesn't matter how good the company itself is, or how good their prices are, your package won't come on time, and may never come again due to the courier company Shopping Express uses.
I'm still waiting on something I ordered 9 days ago (Sydney to Brisbane). Took 5 days to ship, and has been lost now with the courier for 3 days.
The m...arginal savings aren't really worth the risk, from what I can see right now. After reading other reviews, I'm nervous that I'll either never see the products I ordered, or that they'll come broken. Update: Was able to get through to the head office (after failing completely dealing with the courier directly). They escalated the issue, and it was resolved within 24 hours. Total of 13 days to receive goods, and goods were as advertised, as previously stated a slightly better price than competitors. It is possible to elect to ship through Australian Post, thus avoiding issues with the courier service.
Just Read My Review
I waited a week until having to contact Shopping Express myself to find that even though they had committed to an order, they were unable to deliver. By calling their number, I spoke with a girl who always had to ask someone else something on all questions asked by myself. Shopping Express needs a new person on the end of the phone to handle customer service and to be able to manage orders better. Emails also took a phone call or two to be able to get a response. A total of 2 weeks had passed and I decided to purchase the model up and EVGA 1080...ti Black edition for $1180 initial price ($1189) and was offered a discount of a whole $9. My initial purchase $850 + $9 shipping. They offered a $9 discount which only covered shipping which in theory I had already paid in my first order so thus, no discount for the time they have wasted. Once the order for the 1080 ti was through, the postal service was great and there tracking was on point. The EVGA card, once I got it, is absolutely exceptional and performance is great. I'm sure that if you order a product and its shipped that day or next, I would recommend Shopping Express. If you have to deal with the Customer Service, get a refund.

Fast delivery, initially was sceptical because of other reviews
Bought PC parts worth $900 from Shopping Express, sent it within 3 days but that's due to Anzac Day happening in that period. They did use Fastway and arrived the day after (I live 3 hours from Sydney) but no one was home so they took it back to their Newcastle warehouse (don't know why they wouldn't drop it at the local post office). Luckily they have a redeliver service and got it on Monday. Shopping express is cheap and their delivery service is fast if you live somewhat near Sydney, let's see how they hold up if I have to return a product or something.
I'd have to include that the pc case box had a bit of damage in it but the case itself was fine. Although both boxes were placed on the side of the front door carefully.

Firstly Unsure after reading reviews, but overall good experience.
I ordered all parts for a PC build and all parts arrived in the next five days with no hassle. After a few months my Hard Drive began to fail so I had it replaced under warranty. Customer support responded quickly and after I confirmed the Serial Number, I had it replaced in the next two weeks.
I would shop again at this business and I was surprised to have such a good experience despite the negative reviews.
Yes I am a real customer...

Slow to ship.
Ordered parts totaling $1250 late Sunday. All items were shown as being in stock and stated that they would ship in 24 hours. My order shipped on Thursday after emailing them the day before asking what was going on.
+1 star for being cheap.
Let's see how long it takes for Fastway to deliver (even though the delivery method selected was "Auspost, courier", very ambiguous)?
Unlike other people’s experiences
I bought 5 PC parts totalling $400. The parts were shipped the next day (unlike other people) except they used Fastway Couriers which I know from past experiences are TERRIBLE.
Very slow service
Takes a long time to receive an order. They appear to be very slow in processing an order. It would seem around
2 days before it leaves their premises.
Nightmare to deal with, Do not touch!
Bought a brand new phone with them, had no reception, took five months couldn't fix it. I was then issued a refurbished unit as replacement in accordance with their "Company Policy". Don't risk it!!!! Just don't!
SSD Hard drive was dead on arrival. Said I have to wait 2 weeks so they can check if it's faulty. No follow up. No response to calls. Useless.
I ordered a motherboard from them because its price was good.
I got what I ordered in fairly good time.
Don't trust them or their couriers!
Not only does it take 2 weeks for you to get something that is meant to come within 5 days (I ordered on a weekend so they had 10 working days to process and deliver) but the company they ship with left my box of computer parts on my front door even though it says signature required.
I would not recommend to anyone. Go local or to other companies as paying a little more is worth getting sooner and making sure it doesn't get taken or destroyed while sitting on your front step.
Do not trust this company. If you ever have to return a product, they will take 15% of your refund without warning. This could amount to a large sum of money. It is a scam. It is illegal and it is totally immoral.
They will only accept returns by mail. Obviously, so that they don't have to personally take responsibility for their blatant theft.
I will never use Shopping Express again.
Questions & Answers
James, We are still waiting for our desktops we paid for last week?!. We promised delivery Yesterday/Monday 06/07/2020 and you have not responded to phone calls or emails.
Shocking customer services.
Is there any possibility of any connection, association, affiliation, or common antecedents between Shopping Express and a company called Shoppingsquare?
They appear to operate from the same general area of Sydney, close to the same suburb it seems?
They have similar selling formats, sell the same type of goods, advertise goods "in stock" when the goods are "not in stock". Both engage in heavy "spam" type advertising, and certainly appear to treat customers in the same way.
I am not suggesting that they have any real connection, but because of the unfortunate similarities in location and operating methods, I am just asking if any one has any evidence to suggest that a connection is a possibility.
It would be an unfortunate coincidence if we have two separate, unrelated, on line organisations, marketing the same type of goods and who have evolved at the same time and place, and with the same or very similar attitudes to advertising, delivery and customer support.
Don't know about Shopping Square but I have been to Shopping Express premises in Botany Road, Alexandria concerning a non delivery and they are associated with KS Computers at Auburn, Sydney, NSW. I was given the goods by Shopping Express but the invoice said "KS Computers". Recently I ordered some SD cards from KS Computers, and received delivery notification from "Shallothead" and the goods were delivered by Shopping Express. I have bought several items from both companies without any problems.
Interesting that these clowns are associated with KS computers. I ordered a hard drive from KS, thinking that it was in stock. What they actually meant was, it was in stock with their suppliers. Once the suppliers delivered it to them, they would deliver it to me. It toik a lot longer that I had hoped. Both companies are on my naughty list now.
1 - why wont you respond to my emails, calls, posts? (This is not good enough when you sold me a product which does not work)
2 - why would you treat a customer like this?
