Ordered some ear buds on 27th nov. received email on the 28th saying item picked and ready for shipping. 11 days later nothing from them at all. Sent 4 emails asking for an update No reply at all. There is no contact details like phone number or nothing. Just an email address.
BUYER BEWHERE in Australia.
Sometime's it's worth paying more
They do not post negative reviews to their own website so am posting my review here.
Goods point: faster delivery than expected, around 1 week shipped and tracked from Hong Kong (have added a star for this)
Bad points: Not Australian stock - came with massive UK charger (though they did include a UK to AUS adapter, how considerate)
Not convinced that this is new stock - scratches on bottom of phone which leads me to believe that it is refurbished. I could be wrong though if it is new stock then Samsung's quality control is poor.
lucky you if they have the stock on shelf
lucky you if they have the stock on shelf, they will ship it but if they don't then your order will get stuck in "Processing" and good luck hearing back or having any response from their customer service even if you msg them ten times! This is not an AU company and name is also misleading.
No customer service at all
Order the product then if you have any problems no one is going to reply to you. Even if you message them 1000 times no response. Ridiculous website to lose money. Complete scam.
No customer service
I brought an Apple Watch for my partners birthday. I paid the additional $38 for express registered post. Over a week later the website states it’s still being processed at the facility. Even if it were to leave tomorrow, it’s not going to get here in time. I emailed the company regarding this. No reply. No apology. No further business from me. Buyers beware. I highly advise everyone to pay via PayPal so if your items don’t arrive you can just claim it back
This lens is a fantastic piece of kit to get into macro photography
The lens is very nicely made and feels solid in the hand. All the controls are very smooth and easy to use. The images are very nice and exactly what I had hoped for, being able to capture incredible detail off small objects, surfaces, and bugs. The lens is extremely compact and lightweight and easy to carry. It's suitable for macro photography as well as general portrait and landscape photography. It really does everything quite well except telephotography. There are a few things that are either non-features or less than perfect though.
Non-...features: Don't get too excited for the 1.2x super macro mode, it turns off image stabilisation and auto-focus, and 1.2x is not that different from the standard 1x mode, so I'd call this a non-feature. I also think the ring light, while it could be useful for close-ups on stationary objects, isn't that useful for insect photography, and it definitely doesn't replace a flash. It might do adequately in shady areas during the day at best. Don't expect the ring light to compensate for slow ISO, small apertures, or fast shutters on its own. You'll definitely get more out of this lens with a traditional flash and diffuser setup than relying on the ring light. On the plus side, if you don't use the ring light, you can put the lens cover on and then mount filters to the lens that you otherwise won't be able to do if you like lens filters. Less than perfect: One inherent downside of a 28mm (45mm equivalent) lens is that you do have to get quite close to your subject for a good photo and it may scare away more camera shy subjects. It still works though, and insect photography is my primary photographic interest. Conclusion: All that said, the photos I'm getting out of it are very nice and I don't regret the purchase at all. If what you're looking for is a compact and easy-to-carry lens for general use and macro photography, this is a great solution. If you're desperately looking for some increased working distance, get a longer lens, but then you're trading off for weight and size. The only real downside to this lens is the relatively smaller aperture for portrait photography and the like.
Reasonable price reasonable performance
It's easy to navigate through the website, very accurate description and amazing speed of delivery.
Value for money amazing, I found cheaper website, but I got more value with Toby Deals.
Product quality so far looks good, but too early to said, it less than a month since I bought, but it's got warranty anyway.
Scam Site! Read The Reviews!
I made the mistake of being sucked in by their prices, and paid the price...
no shipping, no contact.
hopefully Paypal come through with the refund.
No answer , no stock, no refund
Bought xiaomi mi 10t pro 2 weeks ago and waiting for order shipment . Its been 2 weeks and no response . I sent 5 emails still no response . Only answer apology email for delay. If not able to handle shipment then shut the business. Why showing in website that phone in stock. Disputed with paypal yesterday regarding no order confirmation. Now have to wait 10 days to seller to respond . Very bad experience of tobydeals. Recommend to buy from local shop instead of waiting for months and still not sure what you will get.
No stock, no communication. They are scammers
Ordered a phone 2 weeks ago and still no shipment confirmation. Tried to contact them literally 5 times and they finally responded when i threatened to open dispute in Paypal. They said they dont have phone in stock and will try to ship as soon as possible. Still no confirmtion after 2 weeks. I am going to open dispute and claim my money back. They are scammers so stay away from them.
Haven’t received my item yet ask for a review. Chased up company and I’ve had no response, very poor service.
No delivery. No stock.
5 weeks and no shipping update. Each email response took days where they mentioned tracking will be sent within 80hrs. Order placed 17 Oct finally raised PayPal dispute 25 Nov and bought the product in store. Fortunately refund arrived within 2 days.
Spam spam pam
I have unsubscribed from their nuisance emails at least 5 times, and still they arrive. They seem to pay no heed to privacy regulations.
Do not buy anything from Toby Deals.
Do not buy anything from toby deals. They don't have any stock as promised. Their shipping is non existing. They promise to have your item shipped within 1-3 business days and 15 days later no correspondence. PayPal refunded the money in less than 24hrs and after they ruled in my favour I received a shipping advice saying that my item had been shipped but no shipping or tracking information. Pay the little bit extra and use local companies rather than scamming overseas garbage!!
Product was shipped timely and arrived very fast.
Very prompt is sending the items. It arrived very quickly. However post sales service could be more prompt. I had contact support a few times before getting a response.
Do not buy from Toby Deals
Toby Deals sent me a fake pair of Samsung earbuds, which should have been obvious from the low price ($169 vs $299 RRP). On arrival one ear bud didn't work, I troubleshooted them with Samsung store technician who confirmed they were fake and not working. I contacted Toby Deals and organised to have them pick them up and returned. They then said they 'inspected' the item and found it working, contradicting the authorised Samsung technician. I have now been trying to organise a refund for months, sent evidence from the Samsung store and even retu...rned with the 2 week free window and have had no luck. Most recently after 3 months found a scratch which they are trying to say existed even though it was sent back in new condition. DO NOT BUY FROM TOBY DEALS
It never arrived
Ordered a Samsung Galaxy S20 FE G781 5G 8GB/256GB Dual Sim - Cloud Navy. It never arrived. So after a over a month and multiple emails, that were never answered and a tracking number I never received, I contacted Paypal. Paypal achieved a refund for us. All of a sudden Tobydealsau sends me an email!? Theirs arrived after the Paylpal email stating that they found in my favour and a refund wad granted. Toby deals send me one stating:
We are processing your refund for your order either we have received your refund request for refund or due to be...
Delivered as stated but room for improvement
I bought some audio gear from them and duly delivered, but user manual was in Chinese and had to get another printed at my own cost/ inconvenience. However, audio item was delivered in reasonable time and in good condition which is the main thing. Definitely not scammers...you will get your order but maybe a little later than if you got it in Australia. Recommended...but remind them to send all instructions in English-lol!
STOP!!! don't buy anything from Toby Deals!!!
I got a camera from Toby Deals a month ago and the order is not even processed yet. I have tried to contact them multiple times and they decided to ignore my emails, at this point I will have to start finding out a way to get a refund which will be a painful and long process not to mention that I wont have a camera till I get the money!! STAY AWAY FROM TOBY DEALS!!!
Pleasure to deal with.
I recently bought a Samsung Galaxy A31, took a bit of time to get here due to covid, other than that excellent service.
Good updates by seller.
Will deal with again.
Great Purchase Experience
Site offered a very good price for the Sony WF-1000XM3. Processing took 2 days which was slower than expected but arrived in 8 days as per the site. Great product and good site.
They claim 72 hours shipping from purchase, item paid for 2 weeks ago and still in processing. Another buyer mentioned they got an email saying they were out of stock I didn't even get that. If that's the case they are bait advertising which is against Australian consumer Law. I've raised a ticket with PayPal hopefully I can get a refund.
Great prices at Toby deals!
Ordered Samsung galaxy s20 fe 5g for my wife at a much lower price and the transaction was smooth and got genuine product. Packaging was great, bubble wrapped .Shipping took 1 week. Will definitely order again next time.
Been waiting for weeks and never respond to emails
I ordered a phone but didn't receive any shipping details. When I inquired by email they said it wasn't in stock and I'd have to wait until they get one in. They haven't responded to any follow up or refund requests.
9 Days since ordered - still nothing
Ordered a phone 9 days ago... after 7 days I emailed support, took 2 days to respond with
"I am very sorry to inform you that there has been a delay in the processing of your order.
We would like to offer our sincere apologies for this.
We are working hard to ensure we can ship out your order as soon as possible.
Our expectations are that we can achieve this within the next few working days.
We hope this delay won't affect any plans you might have made."
Now a few days later still no notification that its been sent.........obviously they dont have it in stock even though on the site when I ordered it indicated it is in stock and still does! So fake! Cant be trusted.
Questions & Answers
I bought a Nikon camera and need this by end of December. I've sent email to them but no one response, I'm thinking to buy it from other store but I have put a dispute in Paypal, how do I escalate my dispute to get money back? The status in my dispute is waiting for seller's response, and the status of my order is "Paypal Reversed", what does this mean?
It is in the paypal resalute center you have to let paypal review the case.
I had the exact same status but they never actually reversed it. you need to make paypal do it.
I ordered a phone on 3rd of December and paid $25 extra for the express delivery which supposed to be delivered in 5 days but until now nothing ,sent 4 emails but no reply not even estimated time or anything at all ,the order number is TAUW380167782, any suggestion or help will be appreciated .
I emailed their support email but only got a response 4 days later.
They can be a bit slow with the dispatching and replying to emails but you will receive your phone.
Pls raise to PayPal asap. Toby deal closed business
If you paid by credit card company than raise with them
Where is my phone? TAUW380168383
It's on its way. Calm down. 9 days is nothing. These guys need at least two weeks to ship anything, despite the times quoted on their website. I ordered the same Xiaomi smartphone on the 24th of November, and it only just arrived today. Although initially it ships via a courier called DPEX, it'll be transferred to Toll once it enters Australia. You can then continue tracking it via the Toll website using the same tracking code Tobydeals provide shortly after dispatch (not your order number).
Thank you very much, they finally replied to me via email, saying that it's out of stock and they are sourcing it... Hopefully I'll get it eventually, thank you!
Toby deals are closed down (bankrupted ?) as of 19 December 2020. See if they shipped it before that, if not... you might have to get your money back.
