“Useless, should be put out of business.”

Written on: 26/05/2016 by 328Copeland (1 review written)

I had to give a star to review this terrible company. I ordered a blueberry plant and it arrived a couple of days ago. It was bone dry and broken. I have tried to get through to Customer Complaints but they are always busy. It is an extremely poor company and I will certainly never use it again!… Read Full Review

“Rubbish Presenters!”

Written on: 11/03/2016

I used to love to watch the Friday Fashions. Where did they find the so-called experts?! If it wasn't so awful it would be funny. I worked in fashion for years and some of the comments are really misleading, surely any fool can tell a gather from a pleat?! Seems not, on Ideal World! This show has really gone down the pan over the last couple of years, same clothes week after week. I've noticed that some of their suppliers have changed shopping channels, can't say I blame them!… Read Full Review

“Terrible company with shocking customer service...”

Written on: 07/03/2016 by Sandbachholidayer (1 review written)

Terrible company with shocking customer service centre, my advice to anyone I speak to is don't use Ideal World actually taken money out of my account without authorisation! Not one thing I have ever bought has ever worked for more than a few months. They make it impossible to return things and then loose them when you do!… Read Full Review

“Taken my money - no goods”

Written on: 03/03/2016 by Allisonc293 (1 review written)

Today I ordered a vacuum cleaner from ideal world, I chose to pay using the flexi pay option. The order summary confirmed one monthly payment plus p&p. About 30 mins later I checked my bank account, and discovered they had taken the full payment, over £105.00!!. I called them straightaway, and got a call centre in India? Was charged 13p per minute for the call, and was told they couldn't amend the order, but they would cancel it. I told them I needed the money straight back into my bank… Read Full Review

“They take off your review if not favourable ”

I have bought lots off ideal world and been happy with the products and service, but I was dreadfully annoyed the other day, I sent back a Nicole empire line dress I ordered has it didn't suit me, granted I received a full refund promptly within 48 hours, But I wrote a review on the dress stating on me it looked frumpy and resembled a maternity dress, but good quality non the less, the review was published I got an email stating has such, By chance the other day I was reading other reviews of… Read Full Review

This really seems to be a common theme with Ideal World Shopping channel. I bought an exercise bike in January. I wrote a review and said it was difficult to get on and that you'd need to be a certain height to get on comfortably.

It has a back support at the seat, and handlebars at this point that you can hold while sitting. I couldn't use the backrest as I'm only 5ft, so made this point too. I also felt the tension wasn't really a challenge at it's highest setting, even having done no exercise for years. The review either never appeared or was pulled as it didn't suit their..."Everything we sell is the best in the world" attitude.

I bought a set of Tower ceramic( cerasure) coated pans, and although the presenter said they flew out the door, I just checked for reviews on them and there's none there. This leads me to suspect that people are having problems with them.

I've only used one pan from the 5 pan set, as I want to see if the ceramic will stay non stick before I use the rest. I'm afraid I may be beginning to realise the reason there's no reviews, this pan is starting to stick, even using low heat and a silicone fish slice to protect the coating.

I haven't been asked to review the product either. There must be something that can be done about this biased reviewing of products. If anyone knows please let me know.

“rip off comany who trick customers when making faulty...”

Written on: 31/01/2016 by jamesharding (1 review written)

after emailing ideal about a faulty iPhone it took them 17 days to reply they told me to ring them after the third time of email with my complaint. after ring them l checked my phone bill and it cost me £4.50 and now they want to charge me £3.00 to send a faulty product back . I just can not believe that you have to pay to send a faulty product back and they charge you around 18p per minute which they try to keep you on line. I took the iPhone in to apple they fixed it for £35.00. l… Read Full Review

Written on: 18/01/2016 by Reyes290 (1 review written)

Received a letter asking for payment in the name of a female (I'm a single male)- explained this was a mistake and evidence shows my details and that I always clear my account. A barrage of emails later (they don't read emails properly, along with bad grammar, poor spelling etc) and my account has been blocked until I pay someone else's invoice! Received a letter from a debt collection agency, demanding payment- have replied with the evidence of the mistake and fortunately the agency have taken… Read Full Review

“AVOID THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS”

I ordered a Prestigio phone to take to Spain with me, when the phone arrived it was faulty, I rang to explain I needed the phone for my holiday, was told I had to return the phone via recorded delivery ( at my cost ) and only once the phone was received by them would they send a replacement, 5 weeks later after a phoneless holiday the phone arrived. We bought the phone on the 3 payment account, owing to a bank error the final payment was not taken out, at no point did Ideal World contact us to… Read Full Review

When I first bought this product I found that it burns the skin so stopped using it, some months later I had a letter recalling the pearl, the choice was money back or a new one would be sent, I opted for a new one thinking that this would not burn my skin but I was so wrong this one is the same. I do not recommend this to anyone… Read Full Review

“Does not do what it is advertised to do sadly”

Written on: 28/11/2015 by 316Greenwood (1 review written)

Purchased Beldray 2 in 1 and could not get handle off to make it hand held. Contacted both Beldray, who didn't recognize the product or product number, and Ideal world could not help so they arranged pick-up. I only wanted to get the handle off !!! There is a more substantial Beldray product that seems to work better, from reviews. Very disappointed as wanted to use while crafting but filters clogged quickly and didn't pick up. Sad… Read Full Review

Just taken delivery of my 2 in 1 vacuum cleaner from beldray why would anyone buy a Dyson when you can have a excellent product like this for just £20 6, picks up superbly and with the crevice tool you can get into those tight spots other cleaners can't . I would recommend this product to anyone who has arthritis problems as it's lightweight and easy to handle . Thank you ideal world for this great product… Read Full Review

Bought a duvet at £80. They sent me the review link but I still had no product. Forced to call at my expense to chase. Supplier problem I was told and they would reorder product.

“Dreadful Customer Service X-Hose”

Written on: 14/10/2015 by xqRoss54 (1 review written)

I bought an x-hose from Ideal World. After every use I coiled it up and put it in the garage making sure I never left it outside. I hadn't used it very often when suddenly it burst. I rang Ideal World who agreed to send out another hose, which duly arrived. Sadly after a couple of months it too burst for which another hose was send only because I was still within the warranty. I hadn't used the x-hose for some months and surprise, surprise when I was watering plants the other day it too burst… Read Full Review

Placed an order with them, item arrived however parts were missing. Called them (at my cost - No freephone number just a premium line which costs 3 arms and 2 legs) several time, basically fobbed off saying missing part will arrive, 20 days later the part still hasn't arrived, and i still carn't get a resolution....I am now thinking its basically a rip off company ! DO NOT USE THEM - IF YOU DO YOU WILL BE SURE TO HAVE PROBLEMS WHICH WILL NEVER BE RESOLVED - EXCUSES EXCUSES THIS WILL BE ALL YOU… Read Full Review

TOTALLY AGREE. They are the WORST SHOPPING PROVIDER, orders often missing parts or broken. They are notorious for charging you "even when you have returned the goods, they claim they have never received them...even when their "own couriers" Hermes or Yodel collects them. Ideal World mysteriously seems to lose the notes on your account or your conversations mysteriously didn't get recorded. They are sloppy and rubbish and needs investigating by the industry standards. Stay away
