Still unsure

published

I bought a demo iphone 8plus, it came with scratches on the back, very bad accessories the features included: apple headphones, and such but only came with the phone and a knock off apple charger. And the phone had 88% battery health My other iphone 6plus have been used for more than 3 years and still 100% battery health. And the phone freezes consistently after 3 days. But they replied to my email quickly, I am asking for a refund or a fix on the consistently freezing screen. I bought 5 years of warranty

Refused Warranty

published

Ordered a X demo iPhone 7 through Kogan. Was good for about two months. Then had major hardware issues which was confirmed by Apple Australia. Had written documents to confirm this fact. Because of a small crack in the screen they refused warranty. Went straight to Kogan and PayPal. And lots of emails later Kogan refunded our money. Never deal with his company.
Kogan should not deal with them either. Be Very wary Kogan is a platform for bad companies.

Worst customer service I have ever encountered and the products are faulty and they are liars and each email contradicts the previous one! Have been emailing back and forth for nearly 3 months trying to sort out the issue and they are utterly USELESS!

Do not buy from this company

published

I bought two phones from this company. One phone had to go back for repair under warranty (at my expense). It took five weeks to return after complaining to zip-pay. When the product was finally returned, they'd sent it back with no sim and no case. This put me out of pocket not just for the month long plan I'd paid for, but also a new sim and new case. They won't give you any phone number for customer service and make every excuse not to answer direct questions like, where's my phone? When is my phone being returned? I can't begin to describe the painful process. Never ever again

Better than my previous phone

Just received the Samsung S8 which I bought few days ago.
Everything looks good and as a demo phone it is in very good condition.

Very satisfied with the purchase, even better than my broken S8 I bought from Samsung a year ago.

Terrible experience

published

I ordered and paid for brand new Iphone 7 Plus, instead I've received damaged phone that looks dirty in a generic box. Took me over two weeks to send the phone back with more that a dozen emails to get my refund. They failed to provide me with any explanation on to why they sent me a damaged phone in the first place. Instead they tried to convince me to keep the phone and give me free accessories. I refused. I managed to buy a much better model brand new phone in the BOX from JB HIFI by just paying very little extra, more importantly, i have peace of mind. I do NOT recommend this company. You can't even call them, they have no phone number, you have no choice but to communicate with them via email!! only!! and good luck.

Great price

published

Just had an issue with the phone not working properly. I then contacted Techrific to verify that authenticity of the iPhone as I only purchased it late last year, which they confirmed everything and I can even take the phone to Apple, so I did. Apple assessed the phone and to my surprise they gave me a new replacement as it is under Apple warranty. Very pleased with the service and for the price paid which is less than most other retailers.
Very happy.

Ordered an Samsung Galaxy S8 because my old S5 was at its last leg. Great service, no dramas at all.
Shipping status were updated promptly along the way and delivered safely with Australia Post.
Thinking of updating my partners phone in near future and will surely look for them again.

Great Purchase

Got my new iPhone 8 plus from Techrific last week. Was everything as they described and the price is the best I can find. Just came back from Apple store to get a new case and screen protector for the phone. Ask them about this phone and they also verify the authenticity of the phone. So no dramas there. A great experience for online purchase

Worst service you could experience

published

On a 3rd January I placed an order and the product never arrived. Every time I contacted them they said they would get back to me which they never did.
Eventually I got sick of this and asked for the order to be cancelled and confirm this. Got no reply for 2 days until today 25th January when I was told the order was cancelled. Still waiting for my money to be refunded.

Apple iPhone is fake news!

The ACCC have told TCF Global to refund customers for fake used I
phones. Not done from what I can see. I want my money back.

Everything perfect

published

I put an order for brand new Samsung S9 and after reading some reviews become a bit worried as I only wanted a brand new phone and with samsung warranty. After emailing them, they assured me that it is Australian stock and brand new. Delivery is extremely quick, I got the phone in 3 days only. Phone comes in original packaging and quick inspections seems ok so I took it to Samsung and they confirmed that I do have the full warranty with them.So far all very good.

Hassle free service

published

Very good and quick service. I bought an iphone 6, received in 3 working days then realised I wanted an iphone 6 plus instead. They accepted the return and I paid the extra to upgrade. A week later I received the 6 plus and have been very happy. The process is very easy and hassle free.

Good shop

published

Found them out from few years ago but never purchased anything before. I got an iPhone 6 from them recently due to breaking my new iPhone and service is quite good.
Delivery took less than a week and since I know they have been around for quite sometime, I could trust them enough to buy the phone online.

NO! from all my experience ( and others I had contact with) with these scammers emails and endless stalling delay tactics. If you go ahead and buy from them and you did read all the posts? well its all on you.

Go read up on "Catchdeal too" They are the same mob also Google the name and read up on the ACCC enforcements and note the date stamps and then look at all the posts scene then! Notice anything?

You will just end up with a second hand old phone that some one else no longer wanted for that reason.

Google China refurbished phones! notice anything?

I won all my costs back through my Bank and legal challenge as they were never going to refund otherwise, and the best part I got a big QQ after my Bank did a charge back ROLF.

You will never get a Australian Brand name warranty with the phone as it is not a Australian model. You will be stuck with their so called useless warranty, meaning you will have to sort your own problem out LMFO. GOOD LUCK!!

Techrific and catchdeals are both owned by the same man from Hong Kong, however, he resides in Australia. The accc has Placed an undertaking on his company. Techrific has traded since 2005, catchdeals since 2015, if you google Hendryk Wijaya (the owner) and accc or techrific you should find the accc court document .

Online electronics retailers, BXT International Ltd (BecexTech) and TCF Global Ltd (which operates Techrific and CatchDeal) have admitted to contravening the Australian Consumer Law (ACL) and provided court-enforceable undertakings to the ACCC.

Hi all, my dad purchased a phone off these guys and it gave him an electric shock before falling apart. Long story short we have been to NCAT and won but they havent paid up, we are considering lodging with Victorian courts and sending a sheriff to enforce the order from NSw but tgis will cost a bit of money (around $300) has anyone done this and been successful? Is it worth spending more money on this?

They are in China, good luck as they violate Australian consumer law and I have seen your problem before. In Australia it is illegal to sell electrical goods that were put into the rubbish cause of potential problems like yours. Buying second hand electrical items from overseas is full of issues. One is dose the item meet Australian standards? short answer NO. To find this look for the Australian standards sticker on the electrical item, then you have your answer. Check the ACCC web sight and follow the links to these and more questions buying second hand electrical items from overseas!

For Australian network check this if and when you find an issue with these phones. As I did when it was not working. https://www.whistleout.com.au/MobilePhones/Guides/Will-my-phone-work-in-Australia-carrier-network-frequencies

https://www.finder.com.au/what-do-i-need-to-consider-if-im-importing-a-phone
How can I find a trustworthy supplier? catchdeal / Techrific and all the other alias names by this mob scammers matches this post so well. They will never pay you as Australian law has no jurisdiction in CHINA. The sheriff is not going to travel to China. They have no address location here in Australia where they are here in person.
