Used to be good
Have used them many times before no issue.
Had a purchase the other day cancelled straight after ordering with the reason that my card failed their risk check or their CC merchant's Secure 3d check (Stripe).
This is a card I've used many times with them before, at the same delivery address - so it can't be Shopping Express' risk check.
I called my credit card provider. They investigated and told me my card passes the Secure 3d check.
Shopping Express advised me to use PayPal or Bank Deposit instead. Upon going to repurchase a mere 3 hours after I originally purchased, the price had gone up by $100.
No after sale support Don't buy from Shopping Express
Brought a printer on 21/9/2021 which was delivered 22/9/2021 and the printer would not work. Contacted the support email address with no clear answer to my problem and many emails later still no answer to my question on the printer.. I would never buy from this company again as they very unreliable
and don't respond to any emails and unable to telephone them only voice mail still
DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY..
Bad Taste - Laptop purchase no delivery since 22nd August 2021
Disappointed to say the least. Purchased a laptop on 22nd August, paid for shipping and insurance. To date no delivery. SE no longer answering calls. Sent 7 emails to [Name Removed], no reply and no refund. May have to go to Department of Fair Trading. Clearly a bad taste
Placed Order over a week ago, no updates since
Emailed support to confirm item in stock, response received within hours to confirm availability. I placed the order and checked out. This was over a week ago and I still haven't had an update since. I literally work across the road from their address listed online. Would have expected a dispatch by now or an update at the least. I've tried contacting support on 3 other occasions..
It's very bad experience with SHopping Express
I made 2 different orders of graphic cards and fully paid. They canceled both of them without notifying me. I contacted them and Shopping Express said that they canceled my orders because they cannot get the supply from the distributor. This does not make sense, because they still sell that particular graphic card at higher price up to a few days after my order was canceled.
It's a very bad experience with Shopping Express.
Would be 5/5 if they can only get there delivery service better using australia post is a shambles.
Would be 5/5 if they can only get there delivery service better using AusPost is useless 1-2 weeks wait when others are next day or two. Ive purhcased about 7 times from them but wont any longer due to 7-14 days delivery on average. Couriers please even sendle are 10 times beter that the arrangement SE has with AP
Need to LEARN how to treat customers !!
I have asked S.E. to contact me directly as Ive spent well over $15,000 on their website. Multiple CPU's, GTX 2080Super, 3070 Master, AORUS Motherboards, 1TB 2TB SSDs both M.2 and SATA - you name it I have purchased. I have asked that they call me MULTIPLE TIMES and I highlight this in LARGE TRED CAPITAL Letters.
[Name Removed] does NOT return my calls. NOT ONCE.
Covid has been around since March 2020, that's 1.5 years and other companies are open and have staff like MSY for one, CX another. Why can't they call ? I find it very frustrating when I have technical questions to ask and want an answer immediately.
Can't be trusted to fulfill your orders! Great sales, but order cancelled.
Purchased a laptop & was told they could not fulfil my order. Would not even offer an alternative or a raincheck.
Ignores good customers, no vision
For my new company I need to invest 60'000$ in hardware and started simply with a Synology 920+ and 4 WD Red Plus 12 TB drives. All in all 2500 $, but a great product. I usually buy these at another supplier, but now wanted to give Shopping Express a try. Tagged for 32'000 other products on their website. Should have read the reviews here first.
A few hours after I ordered the above server and drives, I got an email that from now on there was an action of 10% rebate on exactly my configuration. This would have been an advantage of 250 $ had I w...
Over a week before shipped, brand new (?) Hard drive failed within 3 months. Only went with them because it was cheaper
Scumbags selling over retail
Taking advantage of shortages and hiking up prices. Disgusting behavior. Do not buy from them. They are simply rorting the system at the moment
Bought 2k worth of items with insurance still didn't get express shipping wth are these people playing at?
Don't bother, i am tempted to get my items and send them back repurchase through amazon.
I usually don't leave bad reviews, but this time it's important to warn other people. Stay away from them!!!
Ordered a product and after paying for it I realised that the image and the description were different.
Contacted them, worst support ever, no answers for days. I tried to mediate the situation with them, they didn't even answer. Every time I had to open a new ticket to get an answer.
Despite of the fact they says "Dispatch in 24 hrs" after a week not even answers.
Cancelled the order, got a refund.
Stay away from them!
Worst IT supplier of the year goes to
Normally if I get bad service, I'll just take my business elsewhere, although this time I wanted to express a warning for others.... never order from this company.
A week after ordering, still no shipping advice to get an item from Sydney to Brisbane. Yeah, it's COVID and everyone is working from home, although other suppliers are able to ship overnight just fine, even from Melbourne.
Two weeks after receiving and following up with multiple emails, finally received some of what I ordered with no notification on partial shipping or what is ha...ppening with the other items. As for customer service, will can't call them, as everyone is working from home, and looks like they can't figure out how to forward a number. Email responses take days. This is one supplier who really needs to re-evaluate using express in their name.
Terrible process and customer service! Extremely slow and user unfriendly, unbelievable!
Made 2 purchases with duplicate items. Trying to reach out to the support to modify or cancel the order immediately. It takes ages for the support to respond, and when they do, they are not helpful at all, even if the items are still in their warehouse and I state clearly I am 100% going to return the wrong items. They still sent all the items to me. I am sitting here and cannot do anything about it! Very frustrating. And due to its slow response and bad process, I had to hold on all my other purchases to wait for a clear response t...

Questions & Answers
I saw a good laptop with a good price, however, I am not sure whether to order from this website, due to the mixed reviews. Could someone tell me whether I should order from this website or not?
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.
How did you go on with this SWCT ? I also have nasty experience with this bot called James. At least the email look like coming from a bot, not a person.
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.
