"On the Best Buy website, and found Buy.com advertised an Asus laptop computer for $345.99. I placed order for Asus-11.6" Touch-Screen Laptop - 4GB Memory - 500GB Hard Drive - Steel Gray-Q200E-BHI3T45 which I already read all specification and warranty for 1 year from category of "New condition". I received a refurbished Asus netbook with 90 days warranty. I contacted Rakuten (former buy.com) and they informed if I want a replacement, they would send again the refurbished one. Later day I found the same model / same sku advertised again for 480.xx usd instead of 345.99 usd. They did error on advertising and did not responsible for it. This is NOT PROFESSIONAL company. I already returned the item and would not buy from them again."
"I ordered a $1000 camera with two day shipping, I track the order and signature is required (understandable) I have the shipment held at the UPS office for pickup as I would not be home to sign. I rush to UPS after work and find a $3 camera CLEANING KIT!! and my order is flagged as completed. I went through the HELL of 30 email and 10 phone calls screaming and yelling and 3 weeks by the time it is over. They treated me as if I was a liar even after providing the UPS documentation with shipping weight and tracking numbers. How does a $1000 camera fit into a UPS shipping envelope and weight less than 1 pound? I stopped doing business with them over 10 years ago, I guess I needed a reminder. I WILL NEVER DO BUSINESS WITH THEM AGAIN!! "
"This company ripped me back in 2006 when I had bought a refurbished laptop but instead I was send a used and very old laptop. When I complained to the company, they refused to take it back and I lost my money. Laptop never worked. Since then, I learnt a lesson to buy from Amazon or only other good retailers even though I have to pay little bit higher amount.Beware this company has changed its name to Rakuten."
"I ordered a Synology DS213+ NAS through Buy.com Market. The transaction went poorly with the 3rd party reseller, and Buy.com completely failed to help fix the situation. While on the phone with me and a rep from my credit card company, they agreed that the FedEx tracking showed my returned item was received and that I should have received a complete refund for the order. I was told I would get a confirmation call a few days later, but this never happened and neither did the refund. I'm currently involved in a dispute with my credit card company over the charges, no thanks to Buy.com."
"Our last experience with buy.com was not good. We moved and as we checked out we updated our address, check and double checked. The address update was not passed onto the third party vendor who shipped it to the wrong place. buy.com would do nothing to rectify it. Luckily the third party company stepped up. We will not do business again with buy.com"
"Buy.com is terrible as a seller they are going to charge about 25% with a monthly, per item plus percent fee. They can't fix your listings or photos. There is no phone support and to list items it's like pulling teeth. This is the worst selling site ever. Do not sell on buy.com it's not worth it. If you buy there will pay more because all the sellers are charged such high fees. Terrible lay out and so hard to list. Stick with amazon or ebay as so much better."
"I bought a computer off Buy.com and two weeks after ordering (9 days after it was supposed to arrive) they told me that when it had arrived to their local shipping contractor it wasn't accepted (because they were closed) so they rerouted it to another customer and now he has it. Furthermore, that was the Last of those computers and they could no longer follow thru with their end of the deal and that I should be expecting a refund........wow. I begged them not to issue a refund as this purchase was a calculated tax write off for my business for the 2012 year and any purchase in 2013 would negate the entire purpose of me (planning for 11 months) on buying this computer. They refunded my money immediately after telling them that. Completely unacceptable. I will hate Buy.com forever now."
"Do not waste your time with this merchant! I should have done my research before placing an order with them. They have been unable to properly authorize my credit card, which I guess may actually be a good thing based on other's experiences. So far I am not out any money. They are holding my order because they can't verify my phone number, even though I am shipping to my billing address. My credit card company tells me they approved the charge the same day I placed the order, however buy.com has not completed the transaction. Poor customer service trying to resolve the issue - nobody ever contacted me; I've had to do all the communication with them. Every contact is with a low-level "customer service" rep who passes the issue off to some "specialist" who never follows up. Give buy.com a wide berth when doing your shopping. "
"Excellent customer service. I recently bought an external disk drive. It took me 5 weeks before I got around to trying it. It was DOA. I thought I'd have to return it to the manufacturer, but Buy.com has a, generous, 45 day return. It was very easy to use, and they paid for shipping, both ways. I had a new, working drive, in a little more than a week.I've bought a few things from Buy.com, and hadn't ever had any problems. It's times like this, when you find out how good their service is.After reading some of the other reviews, I had to make sure we were talking about the same company. I clicked on the Buy.com link, and logged into my account. Yes, it was Buy.com "
"Just like the other reviewers. I ordered a watch winder and was sent a curtain. The merchant,wayfair, verified that it was an error and they dont evenstock the item listed. They did agree to offer a full refund. Good on wayfairs part. Sad part is, because of waiting to get the order, I am have to pay expedited shipping to order the same from somewhere else. I would advise to stay away from buy.com."
"I placed an order from this website on December 2nd 2012, I bought this Cross Edge Pink pens for a Birthday present (the birthday was the 15th), so I received a totally wrong (and cheaper pens), I called the store Ivrs Luggage the next day, they admitted that they sent the wrong items but they said there was a mistake in the website pricing so they couldn't sent me the product I wanted if I didn't pay MORE MONEY, I told them that then they were lying but the representative told me that there was a Buy.com mistake, so I called them and they told me that even though when she went online she could see the same item in the same price, they told me they would contact the seller co fix the situation and everything would be solved by next Tuesday (the 11), I waited and nothing happened not even a phone call nor an email. So I called back on Saturday the 15th (the birthday date) and they again told me that they were going to call me back the same day. Today (the 17th) I had to call back and they finally told me that there was nothing that they can do, that the Pen I wanted was even out of stock (lie) and that I would have to wait some more days to get a refund...I won't ever buy from this liars site again, I have been buying from Ebay several years and I'VE NEVER HAD any issue with them. My biggest mistake trying "new options". Thanks for nothing Buy.com and Ivrs Luggage."
"Run from this company. I repeat, run from this company. Customer service is horrible and they do not take responsibility for their mistakes."
"My credit card was compromised when buying from this site. Purchases for thousands of dollars. My credit card company got them. Do not buy from BUY.COM you will be sorry."
"Ordered a portable harddisk from them. Price was good and shipping was fast. buy.com is my top 5 resellers for computer accessories."
"Hello all, stay away from this lousy company, they have no stock for most of the items sold on their site. I would never come again anymore. It's safe for a woman like me to buy dress on the fashion store LonelyTrends.com. "
