Awful customer service, products not delivered - avoid!

published

Products ordered were not delivered even after 3 weeks. No response via emails, online chat or phone calls. Raise cIaim via paypal and hey what do you know they are dispatched the next day.

avoid.

published

No response to emails, online chat or phone calls. I finally get through to be told that my items won't be posted for 2 weeks. Nothing on their website suggests that the items are not in stock or that there is any lead time. Hopeless.

Order arrived quickly and without any hiccups

I ordered Kudzu. WIthin a day I have confirmation and the product had been dispatched.
I could track it
And it arrived by Aus Post in good time.
So I am hoping that Swanson has learned and doing a great job now

Worst customer service ever

published

I ordered some protein bars on 22 January 2020. Hadn't arrived by 4 February. Called 4 times and left 4 messages. No-one returned my calls. E-mailed once. No reply. Used their Chat service twice. No response even though I was "First in the queue" for almost 2 hours. Called today and finally spoke to Paul who told me he would investigate and get back to me within 2 hours. At 4pm, after no call from him, I called again twice; finally speaking to him again. He told me that the parcel had been "damaged." He said that, had I not called, nothing would have been done. They refunded my money, even though I said that I would prefer to have the product replaced.

Worst customer service I have ever received.

DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY

published

Purchased and paid for product on 14/12/2019. Did not receive tax invoice or confirmation of order. Emailed them and they sent both to me. Emailed them again and asked for dispatch details. Was told would receive details that same day. Dispatch details not received. One week ago emailed again and was told goods had been dispatched but Australia Post had not issued tracking details. Today 31/12/2019 received details that they received goods and should be delivered early January 2020. What shonky people to deal with!!

DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY!!

published

Ordered from these guys.. no product after 2 weeks, I called them and they said oh yeah we dont have that in stock but we can send you other brands, I accepted because I just wanted my supps.. when they arrived another 3 weeks later they were cheaper swanson brand products rather than the more expensive brand that they were selling that I wanted, seriously dodgy set up.. do yourself a favour and buy somewhere else.

Seriously dodgy company...DO NOT BUY

published

Order 18th Sep. Nothing by 4th Oct. I called and noone answered. I left a message and emailed.
I got a callback advising it had been sent by Aus Post on 24th Sept and he would follow up and call me back. Received an email telling me customs had stopped the product coming to Australia and would I choose another brand.
Called again with an Indian gentleman answering not even advising it is a business, just hello.
This is a dodgy group and I am finding the right authority to report them to

Payment taken, no product.

published

I ordered two products and recieved one, when i emailed them about the product missing they responded that the product I ordered wasn't available and did I want a different product. I replied asking why I wasn't notified before they took my payment? And I asked for a refund. 8 did not recieve another reply. A week later my husband called them to ask for refund and was told they will refund on that day. Still no refund!! Will call them again

No Problems

I bought my vitamins before I read all the bad reviews and thought, well that was a mistake. But I received them in about a week, it was the correct product, expiry date was fine and there were no issues. On this experience, I would buy again.

do not buy from them

published

I placed an order for a supplement and paid for it on the 7th of July and didn't hear anything. When i called them on the 16th of July to follow up, they told me they have sent me an email on the 8th saying this product is on back order. I never received any email on the 8th. Also, they MUST say if something is on back order at the time of ordering not after they have taken your money. Not happy at all with their service and asked for a refund.

Terrible Customer Service

published

Ordered a henna hair dye. It took over 2 weeks to arrive and when it finally did it was the wrong colour. It happens right? So I contacted them letting them know and received a passive aggressive message back saying that they still sent me a hair dye therefore the product is similar and I should be happy with this. They also said the colour I wanted is out of stock and has ‘probably’ been discontinued. Uh.... couldn’t you tell me that at the time I am ordering or at least before dispatching something different and hoping I won’t notice? I have asked them to send me a prepaid envelope so I can send the product back and have requested a full refund to my card. I have yet to hear back.

Don't buy from this company--you will get spam mail from them and you cant unsubscribe--awful

published

Bought from them some time ago and get emails every day--tried to unsubscribe but it doesn't work--they keep changing email addresses so I cant even put them on spam watch list. Damned annoying so beware and don't get caught

Total lack of customer service

published

I have placed an order, paid straight away, then 5 days later it's still not despatched. I have sent 2 messages already asking for an ETA of goods and enquiring how come it's still waiting to be packed. No response to either emails. Will not be a return customer.
Order N26412.

Takes WEEKS to receive

published

I would not recommend anyone purchase from these guys. Honestly it's faster to order a product from America and pay a little extra in postage. I've ordered from them probably 4 times now, and it takes roughly 2 weeks to be even SENT. Then it's another 3-4 days in the post. When I contacted them about one particular order the lady said she will have it marked and sent as express post.. with an authority to leave as well. Nope.. was sent standard post, no authority to leave and took an extra week to receive. I seriously cannot comprehend how bad a company can be? I work in a similar line of work to these guys and it takes around 10 minutes to grab an order and pack it.

Terrible customer service

published

I made 2 orders of henna hair dye one was one box one was 5 more 5 days after the initial order there still wasn't any shipping information or email updates as to why so I tried the live customer chat thingy SO I'm not saying it was this person's fault but they obviously had no idea what was going on first I was told " it will be there next week" then when I told them to cancel my order the response was "I'll let warehouse know but if its been shipped you will need to return it"..... What!? Would not recommend unless you don't mind wondering if you have been ripped off or not I'm still wondering weather they'll actually cancel my order or not I didn't get any confirmation that it was cancelled besides the warehouse comment. Not happy.

Waste of time. No products and no refund

published

Terrible. Have been waiting 2 weeks for my order with no suggestion that it would take weeks to receive from the supplier. Have called them twice and emailed them 3 times with a complaint on their website to cancel my order with no reply at all or confirmations. Still waiting. Don't bother placing any orders with this company.

Update. I have finally received a refund of my money after placing a further 2 phone calls and an email. I asked to speak to his manager which he declined and advised to call back. He did suggest he had passed on my message to the credit department but they had not followed through. It's easier to order on ebay.
