I ordered the item on weekend (I paid extra charge for the next working day delivery) I didn't got on Monday because of Ebuyer. I didn't got on Tuesday because the courier (Yodel because the Ebuyer wanted save money on me). I didn't got on Wednesday because Ebuyer office. They offered me (after I had to call them!!!!) again a next day delivery. Ridiculous company!

One Star is too much for this company. Complete Scammers, and thieves. I bought a £4.5k gaming PC from them and from Day one it has never worked. The PC was sent back for repair/ replacement then returned to me. Same issue again does not power up. I don't think the even looked at it. Called and arranged for the machine to be sent back a second time. This time i received an email saying the pc would not be repaired as it was damaged due to poor packaging and is no longer covered under warranty. It was sent back again and still doesn't work. Which has"no physical damage!!! They provided the packaging for the item to be returned (i even added extra polystyren) and they arranged dpd. This PC has never work from Day 1 Called their customer service twice and was told they nothing they are will ing to do. Unless you want to buy faulty equipment please avoid this company

Would give them 0stars for customer service ordered a gpu paid for next day delivery and wasn’t dispatched was told I would get the delivery refunded but that never happened. Do not care once they have your money no phone call to say it’s been delayed that’s all it would take to keep your customers happy especially when charging over rrp for a gpu

Purchased an AMD 5700G from Ebuyer which arrived today. Upon unboxing, noticed that a pin was slightly bent in the corner. Assuming the product would be in working order when I received it, I chanced my arm at putting it into the PC to see what would happen, of course that was to no avail. Upon calling customer service, I was met with a rude technician who from the start of the call, sounded like he couldn't care less about my issue. He put me on hold, came back and immediately sounded accusatory - stating that by letting him know I proceeded to check if it worked, I was admitting liability. This is ludicrous to say the least, by explaining that it was damaged in packaging, was a clear indication that liability was on the manufacturer.

Bought CPU for Son as a present in November. Come to install it and found one of the pins was bent in the packaging. Ebuyer keep stating they only offer returns on unopened items and refuse to offer refund or replacement. Avoid!

DO NOT USE EBUYER. After having paid for next day delivery the product was delayed. Upon calling they confirmed there was an internal issue and pushed the order through. The product never came even though it was marked down as delivered. There was never any proof of delivery provided and they are unwilling to provide a refund. £114.38 including next day delivery FOR NOTHING. DO NOT USE EBUYER.

Wiggle out of warranties Bought a Asus GPU from Ebuyer, all was well until it started drawing to much power, burnt out 5 HDMI cables, melted paint off the back of my case, gave off sparks and HDMI ports died. Asus do not deal with issues and said to send it back to the retailer. Sent it back to Ebuyer hoping for a fix or replacement. Due to the melted paint on the backplate of the card they claimed the warranty was now void as it was liquid damage done by myself. I sent it back with the PCI cover on, this was not removed for testing and their 'technician' admitted it was not tested, 'we didn't need to, we just looked at it.' Curious as to why they would lie to this extent and knowing there is a shortage I asked if they repair cards at a charge to myself and my response was, 'no and we wouldn't be able to get the parts anyway.' When I send it back I had a feeling they would try to wriggle out of the warranty due to these components currently being double the price and there being a shortage of parts and I was correct. Used Ebuyer for years, family have for their jobs as well. None of us will use them again.

On 26th November, I ordered a CPU and motherboard for £592.95. This is a fair amount of money for me to spend on these items. The website said that the motherboard awaiting stock which was due in "26th November". I was able to select a delivery date of 29th November for this order. On 27th November, the item still said it was out of stock so I emailed in. On 30th November, I had not received a reply so I emailed in again. I had not received a reply by the following day, so I rang up and after 10-15 minutes I spoke to someone who checked and said there's absolutely no details for when the motherboard will be back in stock. However a few hours later, I had an email back saying the item was due back in stock on 17th December. This was too long for me, so I asked for a refund on 1st December - which was processed on 2nd December. I was told on the phone (when getting the refund) that the transaction was pending so the money would be returned to me "in 24 hours". On 6th December, there was no sign of my £592.95 refund so I emailed in to chase this up. I received a reply saying that it will take 3-5 working days. On 9th December, there was still no sign of my £592.95 refund, so I emailed again and they said they'd check with the relevant team. I had no reply, so today (10th December) I chased again and was told the "refund" was processed fine, so I should check with my bank. I checked with my bank, who said there are no "pending refunds". They said to check with ebuyer. I emailed back, and was instead told this was a "reversal" not a "refund" as they previously said. They said I should check with my bank (again!) I checked with my bank, who said that there IS a pending reversal - but ebuyer's payment was taken as a pending pre-authorisatin, which holds the money for 31 days. So as it stands, I won't get my £592.95 back until the New Year. This is not acceptable. I have been: 1. Given 4 different delivery dates for my motherboard. 2. Told my "refund" was due after 24 hours, then 3-5 working days 3. Told my "refund" was definitely made 4. Told it's actually a "reversal" not a "refund" 5. Told I should have my £592.95 back already, even though apparently this isn't actually due until the new year due to how ebuyer handle their payment transactions. A very poor experience. Hopefully I get my money back soon...

Worst company ever. Purchased TPLINK home plugs for a friend. Used an old business account as it was already set up. Friend was away for a few days so couldn't do. Set them up and they were awful. Older units worked better. Not fit for purpose. Phoned ebuyer told I couldn't return as my 10 days was up and no refund because I used business account. I explained it was an accident (using business) and friend was away till recently but they said tough, if I had called a day over then they would have refunded as a gesture of goodwill.. I said I'd cancel all my outstanding orders and they did so seemingly enjoying it to prove they didn't give a .. I was a customer since 2007 and have spent THOUSANDS on that account. Eventually after I found that the items were not fit for purpose and cut and pasted thier return terms to them, they accepted. Well they took 20% of my money from the refund although these things were not fit for the purpose they were bought for which is about £40! Never again and I'd avoid the best you can. Worst business I've ever had the displeasure to deal with.

Ordered 3 times from them in the last month - website and voice says they are shipping as normal BUT .....they use Yodel - every order paid for next day delivery and every order turned out to be 'next week' delivery, 8 days, 3 days and now been waiting for 7 days on the last order. WHY do large firms use the worlds worst delivery firm just because they are the cheapest, especially when they can pick and pack an order within an hour of getting it, only to be let down by their courier!!

Really disappointed with what the company's after-sale process and customer service. This is a shopfront and while the buying process is quite good after you paid for the order the troubles begin. 1. I made/paid for an order with available stock for the next day delivery (Friday) as I really needed it for business purposes. 2. 1st I received some postcode checker issues (I had other orders delivered at the same address). 3. I immediately called and was told everything is fine and the order will be on time for tomorrow. 4. called the 2nd day as the order wasn't `fixed`. 5. was told again that now the order is fixed and that the colleague from yesterday didn't actually do anything... 6. I finally received the order Saturday and they sent THE WRONG item!!! 7. had to wait until Monday morning to call and they gave another disappointing answer. 8. I had to send the wrong sent item back, wait until they receive it and process it. 9. Wish they would at least send me the right one back but was just told that as they don't have the NAS configuration in stock anymore they will refund. Basically, I lost around £400 up2date (I just sent the item back today) and they are continuing to fix their mistakes on my account and money.

After two graphic cards failed they have not refused to replace the second one. Less than ten days old. Do not buy from Ebuyer

I've had an account with Ebuyer for over 10 years. A few weeks ago I bought the highest-spec laptop on the market from them for £3000. When the parcel arrived, it was empty - the laptop peripherals (charger etc) were still inside. But no laptop! On closer inspection, the parcel and the product box had clearly been opened and resealed. Lots of clear plastic non-branded sellotape. So obviously it had been stolen! I called Ebuyer immediately. The lady was helpful and pleasant and said she'd refund me straight away, asked me for pictures which I took and sent immediately. Next day - no refund. Called and spoke to someone else who told me they can't refund me, because they have to wait for Yodel (the courier) to reply. But she made it sound like no big deal, just a formality. A week later, still no refund. Terrible communication - always me chasing. I asked five times (by email and phone) for the case to be escalated so I could speak to someone in management and each request was ignored or not acknowledged. Eventually they asked for pictures - which they'd already had on the very first day. It was a total shambles. Eventually I got an email saying (this is an exact quote): "We have also interviewed the currier who have delivered your parcel, the checks confirm the parcel was delivered correctly. The item sent from our warehouse have been sent correctly as the weight is correct to the item we were going to send as said on the below email. Unfortunately, we are unable to process a refund or send another item to you." Imagine the situation. You order a top-spec laptop from a reputable online retailer. When the parcel is delivered, there's nothing inside. You contact them and they keep your money and give you the run-around for nearly two weeks. Then they finally come back to you and say "it was delivered fine" while you're LOOKING AT THE EMPTY BOX NEXT TO YOU. I had to contact the courier myself, obtain CCTV footage from my building, make a Subject Access Request to Ebuyer to get everything on my file so I could submit to Trading Standards, contact the ombudsman etc etc. Eventually I got Yodel to confirm to me in writing that the package wasn't delivered properly - and then finally Ebuyer relented and agreed to refund me, nearly three weeks later. This was the single worst experience I've ever had with a retailer. I get that it's a rotten situation for everyone; stealing from the mail like that is a real low way to make a living. It's probably not Ebuyer's fault that the laptop was stolen (although who knows, it could just as easily have been stolen in the Ebuyer warehouse before being passed to the courier for all I know). But the customer service from Ebuyer was so bad, and they were so incredibly unhelpful to me as the innocent customer. It felt like their aim was to prove me a liar and offload the problem onto me instead of actually investigate what happened to the package. Their response to emails and phonecalls was intentionally obstructive; I'd write them an email with a series of points and questions and they'd cherry pick one to respond to, and purposefully ignore everything else I was asking - I guess because I was asking reasonable questions that were uncomfortable to answer and didn't fit with their agenda of making this my problem. So overall; the single worst experience I've ever had, anywhere. I probably wouldn't recommend :>

Would never buy from Ebuyer.com again Purchased a Motherboard and CPU as well as GPU and other items, spending around £2500. When everything arrived, I put it all together and found out the Motherboard was faulty (dead). I used another Motherboard from another project to complete my build and get everything working. I contacted the company and they asked me to send it back along with the CPU, I explained what I had done and that I didn't want to send the CPU back as I would be without a PC. They insisted and asked me to take photographs of the pins as well. Then they refused to let me send back any of the items because I had used thermal paste ( as you need to) on the CPU and they said I had invalidated the warranty. When I appealed against that decision I received a terse email stating there was no appeal procedure and it was tough. Needing my PC I ordered a new motherboard from Amazon which came next day, and and reassembled my PC and everything is now working brilliantly. I left a review on Trustpilot of Ebuyer.com and was contacted by their customer service team, stating that they had changed their mind and would accept both items back if I would remove my bad review. The problem is that they want me to send the CPU back as well as the Motherboard, because it was a bundle price. I have told them that I didn't want to send it back because I would have to 1,strip my PC down, 2, be without my PC while they do a refund 3 wait for the refund, which looking at other reviews could take weeks. 4 order another CPU and have to take time off work to wait for it to be delivered. This is all a massive inconvenience which I could to without. All I want is a credit for the Motherboard, I'm not after compensation, I just want what's fair but they insist that as it was a bundled price they have to have both items returned. I have no idea why, the came in separate boxes, why is it so hard. They have no interest in customer service only their procedures Can't they understand that I have already been inconvenienced, Why do the need to make it worse

My package was sent to the wrong address. E-buyer and the shipper were informed of this before delivery. They obviously received the notification but nevertheless delivered half the order to the wrong address (despite a requirement for my signature which they didn't have) and tell me I will have to wait for two weeks or more for the remainder of the order to be delivered to me (on what was supposed to be an overnight delivery).

I’ll leave it to the reader to decide the stars. Due to urgency I made a quick purchase of Lexmark MC3224 printer for our busy office. Bought it on the 6th July 2021 after couple of days it had to be returned due to software and a problem with the duplex system. It took about week to ten days for the collection and replacement. Got a replacement, but this time issue with the screen. So called the business helpline and was on hold for 45 min for some sort of approval. When approved, I get told to call Lexmark as it’s under warranty. After several discussion and letting them know that it was still within the 28 days then they accepted to give another replacement or a refund. Replacement could take up to another two weeks, as the faulty has to be collected and checked again before another can be sent. It was purchased for an office, and we’ve been without a printer for nearly a month. I really don't think it’s wise to make any business purchase from Ebuyer, as a business customer to do not get any help what so ever.

Extremely poor service. Ordered a 3060 GPU with next working day delivery. It didn't turn up and I had to phone to find it's whereabouts. I was told it had sold out and that I had been put on a waiting list and the next delivery would be a month away! No courteous phone call, email, to tell me this- I had to chase them. No alternatives available, nothing. What a waste of my time. Won't be using Ebuyer again.

I have bought a video card which died in few months - nothing too unusual, this happens. I am waiting for replacement since February 2021 but Ebuyer does not do anything to send it to me in reasonable time or provide with alternative. They have alternative on stock but ask me to pay extra £260 (for the same spec!) Good shop would fulfil their warranty responsibilities and provide me with replacement with no cost...

To sum this up i had the worst ever service in my life with them and i don't recommend dealing with them at all they have 0 customer service
