“Pleasantly surprised!”

Written on: 18/11/2012

I was so leery of ordering from this company... as there are a wide range of reviews out there, and I had never ordered from overseas. I was able to find my favorite pair of discontinued Arnette sunglasses here. They contacted me immediately to confirm my purchase, constantly updated me on it's status, and I received my item quickly. I was greatly impressed with the condition and packaging upon arrival - I ordered a similar item from another company. - where the box came all squashed. A… Read Full Review

I know they say on their website that all of their eyewear is 100% authentic. This is a complete lie, as their glasses are 100% FAKE. Yes, they do come with authenticity card and stuff, but those are fake as well. The authenticity card is missing serial and model numbers, and therefore has no use. I filed a dispute with Paypal, and I will copy what I wrote to them, so I don't have to type it over again. I ordered the sunglasses from this company after much hesitation. But the company's… Read Full Review

Interesting, i just received a pair today that i bought after to-ing and fro-ing with the website. I went into some retail stores to check the sunglasses i wanted, model make and style so on so when i was ready to purchase online i would know what i want.

The pair i received are nothing like the ones i tried in the shop, and as you mentioned they do seem fake and cheap, despite all the packaging and so on.

Think ill go into another retail store tomorrow to compare.

I would much appreciate if you tell me what did they tell you the retail store. And if they confirmed whether the glasses are fake or not. I opened up the Paypal dispute, and after a month the closed it. I sent those glasses back to the seller on September 4, and they say they still haven't received them. Since I was sending them using USPS (because I can not afford to send UPS of Fedex to Italy) and didn't have tracking number Paypal considered my claim to be fraudulent. Sad, because I neither have glasses, nor $200...

“Why are people complaining about duty? LOL”

Written on: 29/07/2012

Tell that to your Government on why you should pay duty and tax. If you are stupid and have no knowledge on importing then go read a book. My transaction with Otticanet was on top. Email response is really quicky. Always ask questions before you make the purchase. Shipping was fast. Sure Duty & Tax are high but compared to buying it from a retail store, total cost is still less. Thank goodness they ship it with Fedex, if it were UPS the brokerage fee would have been really high. Once I bought a… Read Full Review

“Billed import duties after receipt”

Written on: 04/10/2011 by AcceptableUserName (2 reviews written)

FedEx sent me a bill for $30.60 a week after I received the frames. Looking at the bill, the shipper ( was aware of the $4.60 duty but did not pay it, resulting in additional fees being billed to me. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY. I would like to return the frames but cannot. Typical Italian BS. I wouldn't be surprised if Otticanet paid their expeditor the duty and they just withheld it. No matter, I'm the one stuck with the bill… Read Full Review

“I paid for a pair of sunglasses from”

Written on: 18/05/2009 by nishoe (1 review written)

I paid for a pair of sunglasses from on the 30th of April, 2009 and according to the website their items ship in 1-2 days and take 3-5 days for delivery by fedex. I wrote to them on the 2nd, 4th, 6th, 8th, 11th, 14th, 16th (some days multiple times) and finally called on the 18th. On demanding to know the reasons for delay on 8.05.2009 they told me, "we are still waiting your glasses as they are a bit delayed in production".
On 11.05.2009 they wrote, "I confirm you that we… Read Full Review
