“Buyer Beware!”

Written on: 24/11/2012

Just FYI....hope you are reading these reviews before you order. I'm another one who never spends money online without checking reviews and (unfortunately) did not do so before spending around $300 at Simply Be. The clothing looked great in the catalog and I have to say the quality of the fabric was nice when my shipment arrived. The design, however, on all--the jean skirt, the sweater, and the dress--was goofy to say the least (looked nothing like the pics in the catalog!!), and the tights fit… Read Full Review

“No problems at all”

Written on: 20/11/2012

It took it about three days to be released for shipping, and a week and a half later it arrived at my door. In fact, it arrived the same day as an order from a US company placed the same day and located much closer to me. I ordered extended calf boots and they were great… Read Full Review

“Some issues, but not that bad. ”

Written on: 16/11/2012

I've had an account with them since 2006 and have never had any major issues. Shipping times are usually fine. Once I paid for Next Day delivery but the courier messed up (very obvious from the parcel tracking info) they refunded me the difference in shipping costs immediately one I requested them to via email. They do bother you over the phone occasionally when you don't order for a while and you account is paid off. They'll offer you discounts and whatnot to place an order right there and… Read Full Review

“A bunch of thieves”

Written on: 06/11/2012 by Carmie (1 review written)

Do not buy from these people, you will never receive your merchandise or money back from them. I had to file a dispute with my credit card company and district attorney's office. My over was for over $300 too. The clothes and shoes look nice but it is all a scam. BUYER BEWARE!!… Read Full Review

“Black Mark On Credit File for oweing them £0.00 ”

Written on: 30/10/2012 by LindseyD (1 review written)

Last year I look out an account with Simply Be. I ordered 3 items, then returned the 3 items as they were faulty. I called their helpline who confirmed that I would not be charged for delivery or any other charges. In August I recieved a letter from a company called UK Search Limited, demanding that I pay £111.95 to them as I owed Simply Be the money. I called them to dispute this, but all they said was "pay up" I then called Simply be, and after almost an hour on the phone, was told that it… Read Full Review

“Slow Shipping For The Few Items Not On Backorder!!”

Written on: 23/10/2012

The shipping is VERY SLOW! You have to wait weeks for an item, if you receive it at all! The first time I tried them was almost 3 years ago and I ordered two pair of jeans. The first pair took forever to arrive and the second pair never showed up at all. My experience with customer service wasn't bad, in fact they were very polite and issued a refund relatively quickly. I'm in the US so I can kind of understand long waits, but I've ordered stuff from as far away as Japan and Thailand and… Read Full Review

“Incompetent in the extreme”

Written on: 23/10/2012

This company does not understand the meaning of customer service! I ordered 2 items; after 2 weeks I had not received anything so checked my account to find the main item had been cancelled due to lack of stock (although it was still showing as available on the site). I emailed to find out what was going on and to cancel the other item in the order (which was shown as delayed 7 days after expected delivery date) as I didn't want to pay delivery charges just for one small item - 5 days later I… Read Full Review

“They don't have a clue!”

Written on: 16/10/2012

Seen some items I wanted for my bedroom and was given £125 credit to spend. I placed my order and all went through. Left it a few days and checked on the progress of my order and it had all disappeared! The £125 was still available to spend so I phoned them up to see what was wrong. I was told I cancelled my order (I did not) but I was told it was in the system I did. They put me through to someone else and I was then told they cancelled it because I was already with another one of their… Read Full Review

“No respect for the customer”

Written on: 06/10/2012

I placed an order 14 days ago and parted with my money. 8 days later when tracking the order online it still hadnt been processed. I contact them and a customer service guy called me. In all fairness the quality of his call was very good. He too couldnt understand how the order was yet to be processed and assured me it would be processed that monday. A week later I still am without my goods??? A mail order company in the UK who takes over 15 days to get goods out? never heard of it and quite… Read Full Review

“HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE”

Written on: 05/10/2012 by VeryVeryVeryUnhappy (1 review written)

I absolutely would NOT recommend to a friend! I would tell a friend to STAY AWAY!!!! I placed an order on 9/12/2012. I was so, so, so excited about this order as it was to be the dress I would wear at the meal portion of my wedding!!!! Anxiously anticipated delivery. After not receiving, and hearing nothing, I called the company earlier this week and was told to give them until Friday (today). Today still no package. Called and was told would have to be considered lost package, that… Read Full Review

“Still waiting for my order....”

Written on: 25/09/2012 by ElleD (1 review written)

I don't understand why my order is taking so long to ship if they are shipping from the US now? I ordered 9/3 and still have not rec'd my order. They tell me the order is being shipped via usps so there is no tracking #. I have never made an online order and not been provided a tracking # . I hope this is not a scam… Read Full Review

“Slooooooow dispatch, poor communications, poor stock...”

Written on: 19/09/2012

I have placed 2 orders with Simply Be now - and will not be placing any more. Orders going missing, couriers delivering to the wrong address, massive delays on certain stock (Joe Brown items are NEVER in stock despite the website saying differently)This time they have taken a full week to even process my order - let alone dispatch it?! Buyer beware....in my experience an inefficient and disorganised company… Read Full Review

“Order cancelled for no reason, no-one told me!!”

Written on: 11/09/2012 by Sammi83 (1 review written)

Placed an order about 3 weeks ago. Got an order confirmation email 2 weeks ago today. Waited for my order to arrive...and waited, and waited, nothing arrived. So today I checked on the website and next to my 4 items it says 'cancelled item' I called simplybe TWICE to ask what was going on and had the phone put down on me both time. I've had no email telling me my order was cancelled or why it was cancelled. Absolutely RUBBISH customer service. RUBBISH site if they cancel your order for no… Read Full Review

“What a mistake!”

Written on: 05/09/2012

I received a catalog in the mail stating that Simply Be is "now in the US." Great, never heard of them but the clothes in the catalog looked fantastic. They were a little pricey but I thought I'd treat myself to a couple of pieces. Free shipping, you say? Fantastic! 20% new orders? Even better! The only thing they left out is the international finance charge that will hit your credit card along with the duty you have to pay at the post office. I ordered four items (~$200 with… Read Full Review

“Horrible Company!”

Written on: 31/08/2012

I received their catalog in the mail in July and fell in love with the clothes. I ordered Joe Brown's Parisian Jacket 7/24/12 without knowing it would be backordered indefinitely. I called their customers support who had no idea if/when they will get the item in at all. What a horrible way to run a company! Sad part is that after I ordered from them, I saw the eBay U.K. website had an official Joe Browns store that was selling the Parisian Jacket, with shipping and handling to the States, for… Read Full Review

“Great purchasing experience, love the clothes”

Written on: 30/08/2012 by Marti2cs (1 review written)

I placed an order with Simply Be on 8/13 for a Jeffrey &Paula dress. I had no idea the clothing would be shipped from the UK, and immediately started to worry after reading the reviews here. No need. I received the order yesterday, 8/29. There was no customs tax to pay or anything, which is what I had feared. And the dress is simply fabulous, exactly what I had hoped and expected. I ordered a 24 and it is very true to size. All in all, the experience was great. I will definitely be… Read Full Review
