“WORST INTERNET COMPANY EVER”

Written on: 25/03/2015 by JamariClifford49 (1 review written)

I have given them a few chances and each time they failed. The clarity of areas of their website is appalling, probably intentionally so, so clients are deceived (e.g. hiding delivery estimated dates if they are longer than what one would expect). Their third party sellers are untrustworthy, slower than they promise and slow to respond, and Play.com just don't care. Each time I have been forced to involve Play.com because third party sellers have performed poorly and then not responded… Read Full Review

“What went wrong!!!!”

Written on: 24/08/2014 by Cannga (1 review written)

I used to shop at play.com all the time but never again. Since they started with this 3rd party rubbish their prices have gone through the roof! It's blatant profiteering. I had a few vouchers I needed to spend and decided to buy a console, play.com sellers were selling it with £100 mark up compared to the sellers own website, when I questioned the seller they stated it was to cover play.coms commission. Thanks but no thanks!!!!!!!… Read Full Review

“Poor Service With Even Poorer Customer Service”

Written on: 05/07/2014 by GlenUK (5 reviews written)

Ordered a cd from www.play.com on 16th June, only for them to incorrectly inform me that my payment card had been declined. So, re-ordered the cd on 18th June, unaware the first order was on its way. Although, it got worse, as www.play.com sent my second order to my former address, forcing me to drive a considerable distance, and ask the new occupants for it back. I contacted play's customer service to complain and demanded a refund, and was met with a very unhelpful response, more of a… Read Full Review

I used to love Play.com and if i had a problem the telphone staff were quick and poliet infact they were top class. Now from they have changed to 3rd party selling it is rubbish. I placed an order from zoverstocks on 19th May, it was supposed to have been sent on 21st May. today 2nd June and still no game. I have sent loads of emails, contacted play.com I have had no reply form zoverstocks and play.com on their help chat just told me to wait. If i had know i would have bought elsewhere… Read Full Review

“Merchants be aware not worth your time or money!!!!”

Written on: 16/05/2014 by lddiamond (2 reviews written)

We signed up to Play.com as a merchant in December 2013, and have to say as a merchant it has been the biggest waste of money. Their systems are not user-friendly and comprise of having to fill out excel spreadsheets to get products listed followed by messing account with yet more spreadsheets. Play then told us if we use a Channel Unity we will be able to automatically upload products from our inventory database. Obviously as nothing had gone to plan up to now this failed and resulted in 2-3… Read Full Review

“Don't buy from!”

Written on: 12/05/2014 by Rooney28 (1 review written)

Purchased a highchair online & estimated delivery was up until a week later. Once the week had past & no highchair I e-mailed baby.com asking when they expected to deliver...no reply! A few days later I emailed again but still no reply so then I spoke to a sales person on live chat & apparently they had none in stock & estimated delivery would be in 4 months time!!!! When I asked why they'd given me the wrong delivery dates was told not their fault & I could contact the seller. I requested a… Read Full Review

weird that. When I didn't receive a dvd I contacted play and they raised the fair play thing and told me that I would get either a refund o r the item. They ended up giving me a refund when the seller didnt refund.

“Play review”

Written on: 28/12/2013

I was trying to get some MP3's from them last night, for half an hour their system was telling me my card details are wrong and then my order wasn't showing up anywhere in there either. Meanwhile it's all deleted from the basket. So I quit and go buy 'em from itunes and amazon. 4-5 hours later they send me an automatic email saying they've managed to process the payment and it's all available in my account. I contact their support to tell them to remove the MP3s from my download area… Read Full Review

“Use Amazon instead or go to the High St”

Written on: 27/12/2013

Used Play.com for years and never again. Since company sold, service is terrible. Don't waste your money as the order takes weeks to process and never arrives. Gives online services a bad name and maybe the high street is he way to go from now on. At least when payment is made the goods are handed in fair exchange… Read Full Review

“Just awful... no help at all when things go wrong”

Written on: 23/12/2013 by gglasgow2013 (1 review written)

If you can at all use an alternative like Amazon, please try them before using Play.com. I had a problem with one of their partners Base.com that was made worse by Play.com's awful account interface. When there was a problem with the order they were just completely unhelpful and I ended up just closing my account (and they still haven't managed to do that properly yet). Given that big companies should be getting better and better at this type of thing, Play.com just seems to get worse and… Read Full Review

“Play.com-It just gets worse”

Written on: 19/12/2013

So now you are at the mercy of suppliers, unable to contact Play.com and no longer any help; merely suggestions. Just how are they still in business. I feel very sorry for the play traders who are really worth trading with. So now I will switch all my trade to E-Bay where possible, Such a shame… Read Full Review

“What went wrong?!”

Written on: 14/12/2013 by Lhgtog (2 reviews written)

Play.com used to be my favourite site for buying DVDs and blu-rays but now that's changed! Not only are the delivery times unbelievably slow but there's no longer any customer service for all the traders that now trade under 1 mask! And that's now what it is - a mask for lots of small retailers who don't want to deliver good customer services or look after there customers. They don't have to accept any responsibility when it comes to dealing with customers. I might as well use amazon from now… Read Full Review

Have Play.com stopped trading? I cannot get further with my order than the basket. I have tried to phone them but just get endless music without an answer and when I emailed them it bounced back and could not be delivered. Even if I could proceed with my order I wouldn't risk it now and would not trust them to deliver… Read Full Review
