I've tried several times to order items from River Island and have never been able to. Firstly, there is no manual way to enter your home address and the website did not recognise my postcode, therefore I had to have my items delivered to a friend's address. Or I would have, but when it came to processing my order I had entered my card info only to be told that my order could not be processed for whatever reason. This happened repeatedly, even when I tried a different card. Useless… Read Full Review

The absolute worse part of the whole river island online ordering is the delivery, they use the worst company imaginable, hdnl, you should read some of the views online regarding it, its always late, theres always some type of problem delivering, also some people are seying they go to the there shopping basket on there website and it wont let them buy anything after they click continue, the reason this is is because the bit that you have to enter your card details on is a pop up, so turn you… Read Full Review

I bought a very flattering navy blazer, in a soft jersey material with nice nautical details on the buttons. I loved it, and thought the design was very well thought out and it all looked lovely. I was very upset shortly afterwards. The material bobbled after wearing if twice and the buttons fell off! Plus the material seems to attract all the static there is in London, including fluff and pet hairs. It hasn't been laundered or gone through any rough treatment, it is simply not made for anyone… Read Full Review

FIRST TIME ORDERED ONLINE AS NEED ITEMS FOR HOLS EXCEPT THEY USE A COURIER SERVICE AND IF YOU ARE NOT AT HOME THEY TAKE IT BACK THEY ARE TOO FAR AWAY TO COLLECT. WHAT WRONG WITH POST OFFICE AT LEAST ITS A FRIENDLY MORE ACCOMODATING DELIVERY. ITS A NIGHTMARE TRYING TO ARRANGE A SUITABLE TIME IN ORDER TO GET GOODS. WHY THE HELL DO THEY NOT HAVE A MORE SUITABLE AND CHEAPER SERVICE LIKE PLACING ORDER ONLINE OR IN STORE AND COLLECTING FROM STORE FREE OF CHARGE. WHICH IS THE IDEAL ANSWER. NEVER EVER… Read Full Review

The absolute WORST of the worst!! Shop very regularly at river island stores and have never had a problem, customer service is fine, always willing to help. HOWEVER, ordered online for the first time recently and will NEVER order again. As I have wanted a belt for a while now that has never been available to buy in my local store, I decided to order online. However, as I think the postage charge is quite hefty, and refused to pay £3.95 to have just one belt delivered, I decided to order some… Read Full Review

Ordered 6 items, delivery 3 weeks late, then 2 attempted deliveries during the week I'd informed them I'd be out of town. Items no longer available (!?!?!), although paid for - they do not read emails, just send template responses. Shocking!… Read Full Review

The worst online shopping experience one could ever undertake, useless website, says items are in stock that arent, says they are ordered when they are not, then numerous auto generated responses from the order system and Customer services.
No actual human feedback to my complaints.
Your better off using someone like Next their so much slicker than this shower, I would say its like dealing with a business entirelly staffed by Remploy, but that would do Remploy staff a severe injustice, as… Read Full Review

i was impressed with the ease in which i could make my purchases on the riverisland web site. I was actually encouraged to buy more than I anticipated as the layout was very customer friendly. I purchased several menswear items such as trainers, shirt, coat and jeans and they all arrived very quickly and on time. I would recommend the website as it's much nicer than the stores and they had all my choices in stock - which was fantastic. A very good site in comparison to other retailers sites… Read Full Review

River Island fronts itself with an attractive, easy to navigate online site that means its easy to make regretable purchases.
Compared to the other major retail outlets River Island overprices its goods. What do we look for when we value an item? Personally if I am going to pay above the odds I'd expect quality and durability. The clothing fails misserably on both. Clothes perish after only a few wears/washes and given the price tag I find this particularly dissapointing… Read Full Review

It took 3 working days for the dress to be despatched from River Island(this was ordered on 7th Sept 09). The courier company mis-sorted it. Since this time I have made 8 phone calls, no one is getting back to me re this parcel. River island said they would call me back on two occasions and I have heard nothing............I am still waiting… Read Full Review

I had nearly been put off from buying from this site, as a friend spent £200 on items that never actually left the warehouse, even though she'd got an email to say they'd been dispatched, and taken the money.
She eventually got a refund after 3 weeks.
I love a lot of the clothes from River Island so it would have been a shame to let that get in the way. The website was a bit of a nightmare to navigate, but I was happy with the delivery time and packaging. But looking at previous reviews… Read Full Review

Received unbelievably good service the first time I ordered-I'd seen a pair of shoes instore but they didn't have my size. Found them online, placed my order on a Saturday, selected Standard Delivery as Express seemed pricey especially as it wasn't a Next Day service. I couldn't belive it when they arrived on Monday! River Island had actually shipped them on a Sunday and Homr Delivery Network, although the were sent on a 48 hour service, delivered them the very next day! The shoes were well… Read Full Review

Not happy - ordered 6 items from River Island - came to around £215 with next day delivery
then went on to my account to find they had cancelled one of the items as it wasnt in stock - NO EMAIL TO TELL ME THIS
THEN... to make matters worse they then charged my card again for the total without the item!!!!
Sent them an email and NO REPLY - bad customer service
Customer service not open on Saturdays - so now I have to wait till Monday to get my £215 back!!!!!
Ruined my weekend as I needed the… Read Full Review
