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
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.
Need to LEARN how to treat customers !!
I have asked S.E. to contact me directly as Ive spent well over $15,000 on their website. Multiple CPU's, GTX 2080Super, 3070 Master, AORUS Motherboards, 1TB 2TB SSDs both M.2 and SATA - you name it I have purchased. I have asked that they call me MULTIPLE TIMES and I highlight this in LARGE TRED CAPITAL Letters.
[Name Removed] does NOT return my calls. NOT ONCE.
Covid has been around since March 2020, that's 1.5 years and other companies are open and have staff like MSY for one, CX another. Why can't they call ? I find it very frustrating when I have technical questions to ask and want an answer immediately.
No order updates and no stock
Bought a monitor on their website. After a week I didn’t receive any updates, so I had to contact them by email. They said that they didn’t have stock anymore and they applied a refund.
It’s annoying that I had to contact them and ask. They should have proactively contact me to set my expectations early.
Ignores good customers, no vision
For my new company I need to invest 60'000$ 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
Do not recommend
Heard nothing until I contacted them, where they told me they had run out of stock. Even tho the site said they had some
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.
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.
Very rude customer service including after sales and warranty
Praying for not having any kind of issue after purchasing from them or your nightmare would start. I don't really want to repeat how friendy or rude their staff is, Just remeber there would be a reason that they have such a low price
Cost me $200- to shop through Shopping Express
Purchased an ASUS ZenBook laptop which carried a $200 cash back offer. This was a critical component of the decision to purchase.
Told to wait a week or two for the calim information to be provided.
Followed up via e mail with Shopping Express within two weeks - no response.
Followed up again and was told the promotion had finished - and now nobody wants to know.
Trust is a critical part of any decision to purchase online - and my trust in Shopping Express has been destroyed.
A warning to all potential and current customers of Shopping Express.
Terrible and can't go back
Been waiting over 3 weeks since paying for my purchase. Now I check up on the order and it has been cancelled with no email, no contact, no refund. This is not good. Now I've started searching for reviews and see this company is notorious.
I had spent > $1000 on computer parts. Pretty concerned at this point
About 2 months ago I was searching everywhere online for a new Gaming Laptop. Didn't really think I could afford anything decent at the time, but to my happy surprise ShoppingEx had the Asus TUF gaming range @the best price Anywhere online (I procrastinated for weeks researching btw) Anyway I ordered with part Zip-Pay & part debit card to make up the difference, another great service. Got my new laptop with-in 10 days (amazing) & it was Perfect! Not one problem & it was exactly what I wanted & needed. Great system- Ryzen7 16gb gtx1650 model bt...w. I cannot fault them so will be ordering a new monitor from them this weekend and will review the outcome ;p Only 1 thing stops this being 5star...I didn't receive the ASUS laptop carry backpack that is supposed to come in the box, was looking forward to that. But good job. C.Russell Albany W.A
I purchased two 12TB hard drives through Shopping Express as they had advertised a free SSD if you purchased two hard drives between certain dates. I received my hard drives, however, they had post dated the invoice making me ineligible for the free SSD. Numerous emails and even sent them a copy of my bank statement showing the date of purchase but they refuse to supply what they advertised. I will never deal with them again.
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.
