I ordered two items on April 15th and paid the extra $16.99 for expedited shipping as I absolutely needed the items to arrive by April 21st. Realizing after I made the purchase that they take days to even ship the items, I went ahead and submitted a cancellation request prior to the shipping. I received no response from them whatsoever, instead receiving a message that my items had shipped two days later. After sending them another message about this via their contact form, email, and social medias since I could not be sure they would answer, I finally get a response out of them. Given their lack of response, I told them I was expecting a FULL refund, including shipping and that I refused to pay the $9.99 return fee as well. They didn't respond until after I messaged them TWICE, to which they doubled down and told me I would have to pay the fee. I messaged them three times regarding escalating the issue and they refused to respond after several messages. On the 30th when it had more than two weeks since I had placed the order and had yet to receive it, I opened a dispute with AfterPay as KOODING could not be trusted to actually respond to open customer inquiries, even after emailing them twice, sometimes three times in a row. They doubled down and tried to claim that I refused delivery, which I did not. I even reached out to DHL to confirm such and KOODING still refused to respond to me. AfterPay helped mediate the dispute and KOODING tried to resolve the matter by refunding all but $31.99 of my transaction for shipping costs and return fee. They seriously tried to charge me $31.99 for an order I NEVER RECEIVED. After many messages and escalation, it wasn't until I said I planned to sue in small claims that AfterPay (not KOODING) agreed to give me back my $31.99. Throughout all of this KOODING refused to respond to my emails and only corresponded with AfterPay. I would not recommend this company to anyone in fact I would strongly advise AGAINST doing your business with them unless you plan on being ripped off and continually ignored. There is some seriously shameful incompentency here and a sincere lack of care for their customers. When my package didn't arrive I should have been met with an immediate refund and customer care coming to a proper resolution, not with blame. I shouldn't have had to fight tooth and nail for something where I so clearly needed assistance and was deserving of a refund. It looks like they have a tendency to reply to reviews on here so let me preempt that by refuting some things they said to AfterPay: I did not make false claims in my dispute against them, nor did I ever refuse delivery of any package (and I have the chat transcripts with DHL attesting to such). Yes, I was upset at first about my order not arriving when I expected it by and did try to cancel it initially, but the order simply NEVER arrived, and they tried to use my initial cancel request as a smokescreen for them simply never delivering my order. Don't let these people fool you, they don't care about you or your happiness as a customer, they literally only care about your money and will fight you tooth and nail for every single penny if they find any opportunity. Do not give these fools any of your business. There are much better websites out there which offer similar products. You can also usually buy directly from the brand without KOODING's markup.
