This company is totally a Scam.
I wish i can take them to court !!
This company has absolutely no regard for Australian consumer guarantee laws
Terrible service if any fault developes with your product
This company has absolutely no regard for Australian consumer guarantee laws. at least some 5star reviews appear fake: the accounts seem to have a random object photo, the review wording is generic and do not appear to specifically relate to any product and if return/warranty claim is listed, no mention is made of the service experience.all the halmarks of copy paste and random box ticking... If a fault developes, they will hide behind the manufacturers warranty with no investigation into the fault itself and will try to extort and additional $104 from you to ship the faulty item back. Do do trust them with electronics.
Best deals but if there’s a problem you may as well chalk up the loss
Bought a poco F2 Pro phone and got it for a great price. They really were so much cheaper than the rest of the market. So if you purchase and nothing goes wrong, you are golden... BUT
I had an issue with the phone. I sent it back under warranty. They received the item and processed sent it back. They didn’t fix the issue. I’ve resent it back to them and they are working on it. I’ve pretty much written off the phone now. I’ve been in warrant for 4 months (and counting) and no result.
Super prices when doing comparatives
Based in HK
Warranty service takes a very long time...
Denial of factory warranty.
I purchased a Dyson V11 and after 13 months the trigger broke. When I approached them for warranty they told me the warranty was only 12 months so bad luck. I approached Dyson looking for the part to repair my machine and they told me the machine had a 24 month warranty and they sent me a vacuum head with no hesitation. Tobydeals would still refuse to accept the item was still in warranty.
Beware, they are scammers.
The worst service you could ever imagine
Bought a Samsung Active watch and the watch stopped working after 6 months. The service teams did not offer any support and dismissed my arguments.
If I could give zero.....
My gripe is the terrible service. They sent me a broken screen protector and wouldn't replace it. I sent pictures which they quibbled over. Ridiculous.
I also bought 2 phones and it was near impossible to get any service support. They are terrible. I will never buy anything from Toby deals again. These are the type of guys who give online shopping a bad name. We now pay more and shop at JB Hi-fi where if anything is wrong or broken they simply replace with a smile. I learned my lesson.
⚠️ 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.
I received the incorrect game and have sent 3 emails now to sort it out and still no reply. This is a Xmas present and I would like it sorted asap please.
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.
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.
