"7dayshop.com - Read the small print"

This site has low prices and is a must...... if you live in Guernsey!! Be warned, check their conditions of sale. I was looking for a digital camera and had picked the model I wanted, so went to a price comparison website to find the cheapest supplier, which was displayed as 7dayshop. I ordered the camera, costing £459, and sat back happily to await it's arrival. Days passed and then more days passed with no sign of the camera. Eventually it arrived, along with a bill from HM Customs for £93.01! The fact is that the price shown on their website does not include VAT. As soon as they post the goods to this country Customs slap the extra charge on it, plus an extra charge for having to inspect it in the first place. VAT is not charged for goods under £18 so by all means go for it, but personally I would prefer them to be upfront with their prices. Of course this would mean that they wouldn't appear as the best price in comparison sites. So, in conclusion, there's far better offers available on digital cameras from other sites who may seem to be more expensive at first but just turn out to be telling you everything.

    Hi. Welcome to Ciao. Your review is a good start but for someone making a decision as to whether to use the site or not it would be useful to have additional information. For example, what other types of product are available, how easy the site is to navigate, etc. Have a look around at some other reviews to see what is expected. If you update your review, let me know and I'll happily come back and re-read. Have fun. Cheers. Christina ;-)
