⚠️ Don’t buy if you’re in Australia.
Buy from an Australian based company and not only support aussies but be protected by Australian consumer laws. Aussies be warned they purposely named and advertise their site so we think they’re an Australian based business, hence the au. THEY ARE NOT and They ship out of Hong Kong and will send you an overseas versioned product if you’re lucky that’s similar to what u ordered, and PayPal Won’t protect you as they will just send a link to confirm something arrived so if you want to return it you have to pay the shipping fee and you lose out a...nyway. This is after the fact that you will wait 3-4 weeks for it to arrive in the first place. They don’t respond to emails, and if they do u will get a generic “blah blah blah” response ignoring what u at actually asking. Positive responses you see below must either work for them or are family members
Scammers sent me a a Chinese copy after advertising in english
Scammers sent me a Chinese copy of the game after advertising in english then PayPal made me send it back for a refund. The return delivery cost more then half of what the product was worth and I did not get the delivery refunded. Watch out these guys have more then one site where they scam people. The cheaper prices are not worth the headaque
This company is a scam do not buy products from them, they did not commit to shipping dispatch times and refused to respond to order cancellation requests 2 weeks after order was placed still no shipping confirmation. Then after the issue has been escalated to PayPal they send out and email saying they are longer in business . Do not buy from Tobydeals or tobydealsau

Not worth the hassel
Website states processing time three days. Waited 5 working days before emailing themg waiting another 5 working days for a response stating there was delays. Waited another 5 days then raised paypal ticket. Still no response through paypal or email. Esculated to a claim and paypal forced a refund.
Not worth saving 5%,
Order was cancelled after 3 weeks
Took the chance with this company because of the attractive prices.
Was sent 2 emails stating the order is being processed and dispatch would happen soon but 3 weeks later the order was cancelled by Toby Deals. Big waste of time. Not worth the ~$60 saving
Not happy with the service at all
I brought a phone which was horrible and even after I did all the things they asked me to do and showed them video proof, I was still told to pay $104 to send it to them to look at and determine if it is faulty. I can't afford to waste more money for something they couldn't garauntee.

If you are looking at buying camera gear from TobyDeals, save the extra $$ and shop elsewhere.
Item was purchased on 29/11 (Lens for a Sony Camera) with the top end shipping so that I could hopefully score it before christmas. Item was on processing for a full week before I sent enquiries to ask what is the hold up, to no response. I then took to reading the reviews for TobyDeals and realised that I should probably look to these places more frequently before splashing $700+ on items. After 7 business days of no response and still no sign of the item being shipped, I raised a paypal dispute and of course moments later, I get the generic "...Sorry about the delay, we'll ship it as fast as we can" response. I asked for a personal response from a human and got nothing so after another 3-4 business day wait of no action, I escalated the paypal dispute and within 2 business days, a refund is apparently being processed. So in summary, going off the reviews that I read and now my experience, this company is very sketchy, avoid at all costs... I'll save up the extra $250 and shop at a camera store that actually possesses stock! At no point did I get a genuine response from this company to discuss the processing delays with this lens.
The parcel arrived fast and quick with perfect packaging and tracking information are also provided by the company. Well done!

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.
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

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!!!
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.
5G on my Samsung S20 ULTRA 5g not working
The 5g on my device is not working, i asked them for help since the phone is under warranty and it will take over 2 months for the device to be back in my hands and this is even if they decide to fix it.. So untrustworthy, pay that extra 20% and get your device from a local seller. WASTE OF MONEY I also paid for the express shipping 3-5 days and the phone arrived after a month. COMPANY IS A JOKE
Second Hand Phone
Bought Sa m sung A71 three months ago, on opening and setting up phone found numerous personal reminder dates in calendar in another language which I can not remove! Also screen is not seated into phone correctly and is sharp when running fingers over screen. This phone has been used before and this company will not give me a refund until I return the phone and they agree about the condition. Paypal will not refund me until I agree with what the seller has asked. Shocking customer service from both companies, I don't recommend buying a phone from this company nor use PayPal any more.

Scammed... Ordered an S20 phone and received a small clay brick
Ordered an S20 Samsung phone. Service was great and package arrived within a week however when I opened the box I am shocked to find the charging cords, a clear case and instead of the phone inserted was a small clay brick. BEWARE DO NOT SHOP FROM THIS OUTLET. I have contacted them and also reported this to paypal.
If I could leave a zero star.
These guys would get it. Absolutely horrendous communication, they don't respond to any enquiries with regard to order details such as tracking. I got tired of waiting and decided to cancel the order and get a refund. Still waiting on their response to the first email. Horrible service.
Do not buy from Tobydeals
Do not buy from Tobydeals. Their 14 day returns policy is void if you open the packaging. They will not take it back. They also forgot to send my order and I needed to prompt them 3 weeks after I made the purchase and processed my payment
No stock, poor service, delayed refund
I purchased a pair of wireless earphones as a birthday gift however they were delayed as they didn't have stock. This information was only shared with me two weeks later after two attempts to contact them. This is despite the original email confirming that the products would be shipped within 2-3 days. When a refund was requested, they also stated that it'd be processed in 2-3 days, however it's been a week and I'm still waiting on confirmation that the transaction has taken place.
Don't take the risk if you're buying for someone else or have time constraints.
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?
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 .
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!
