They Lied - They're Quicker Than 7 Days! Review with images

AdvantagesThey're fast and cheap and reliable

DisadvantagesNo contact number available in case of queries

"... One of the complaints about 7DayShop.com is that additional taxes have to be paid on purchases – the site states quite clearly that items under £18 in value are exempt from VAT and all other items are priced inclusive of VAT. This might not have been the case in the past but it certainly is now, so maybe it’s an improvement they have made in response to customer feedback. They do say you can cancel orders for items which have been placed on back ..." Read review

BE WARNED: 7dayflop! UPDATE Diamond review

Advantagessome cheap prices (on sub- £18 value goods e.g. batteries, film)

Disadvantagespoor customer support, no telephone number, slow delivery, no UK warranty with many cameras (US imports),lack of refund, cancellations difficult

"...are the names by which 7dayshop.com has been referred to by past customers! So, what is 7dayshop? 7dayshop is just another online photographic goods retailer with a difference; they are based in Guernsey, meaning cheaper prices or so you’d think! Before writing this opinion I was reading other 7dayshop.com reviews on Ciao; they seemed to follow two distinct patterns; either they were full of praise, saying how fantastic the prices were or were ..."

7dayshop.com

AdvantagesV V good prices, large range

Disadvantages7 - 10 day delivery

"INTRODUCTION 7dayshop is based on Guernsey in the Channel Islands. As such it has the ability to avoid VAT and this, together with purchasing power, gives them the ability to offer extremely keen prices. Established in 2000, 7dayshop has become one of the largest internet / mail order suppliers to the photographic enthusiast market. This is not the first – and probably will not be the last – review of 7dayshop: I have attempted to be objective ..." Read review

CHEEEAAAAAPPPPP! *drools*

Advantagescheap, quick to deliver

Disadvantagesyou might have to pay taxes on the more expensive items

"BACKGROUND ******************* Most of you know me. I am a pure bargain hunter. I don't like to spend money. But I like to get stuff. So I try my best to get them for free, or close to that. WHAT IS 7DAYSHOP? **************************** This website is very similar to Pixamania, but with a tinier range. They sell digital cameras and related accessories, camcorders, printers, outdoors gadgets, mobile phone accessories, computer accessories, ..." Read review

Bargain shoppers' seven heaven

AdvantagesCheap offers, Good overall range of products, good stock supply

DisadvantagesExpensive delivery

"...IT DELIVER? I've ordered from 7dayshop.com twice and can say from experience they've kept to the 7 day delivery deadline every time. The first was when they had a free post and packing offer on(fantastic!) The other occasion was when P+P went up to 99p (still very good.) The prospect of low P+P and its offers put me into a mild buying frenzy. Now it P+P is a (rather pricey) £3.95 for normal 1-3 day delivery service. The price hike is probably ..." Read review

7DayShop, VAT Free Only For Low Priced Items

AdvantagesUnbeatable prices for items under £18 (VAT-free). For the rest, know your prices and assume nothing

DisadvantagesNot very informative order progressing.Check a shopping robot before committing to a high-priced item.

"I’ve been using off-shore shopping sites for while now, a good example being www.play.com, which is based in Jersey, C.I., and which supplies Region 2 DVDs at something approaching the price of North American sourced Region 1 disks. Given that they are also post-free helps too. The major advantage of such purchases is the fact that the Channel Islands are a VAT-free zone outside of normal UK and CE trade tariffs. PUBLIC WEALTH WARNING Of ..." Read review

fantastic value for brand name film and batteries

Advantagesvery cheap, good selection

Disadvantagesslow delivery

"7DayShop is based in Guernsey and so can exploit a loophole regarding small exports -- if an export from the Channel Islands is worth under a certain amount, £17.50 I believe, the purchaser does not have to pay VAT. The end result from this is the cheapest place by far that I have ever found to buy camera film and batteries. The shop sells other accessories too, such as printer cartridges and stationery, but I am only interested in the photographic ..." Read review

AdvantagesCheap if you actually get what you order.

DisadvantagesNo customer support. Do Not want to help after they have had your money

"...DO NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING FROM 7DAYSHOP.COM YOU WILL BE BETTER OFF IN THE LONG RUN IF YOU ORDER FROM A MORE REPUTABLE SUPPLIER. I ONLY WISH I HAD READ THE VIEWS ON THIS SITE BEFORE I ORDERED FROM THEM. WELL YOU LIVE AND LEARN. NEXT TIME I WILL MAKE SURE I CHECK THE CIAO SITE BEFORE ORDERING ANYTHING ELSE OVER THE INTERNET ** ..." Read review

A Repeat Customer, So It Must Be Good.

AdvantagesGood Prices and Good Service

DisadvantagesPostage From Guernsey

"My Husband required 3 compact flash card, 64mb last year, so I surfed around on the internet and found 7dayshop.com. A little unsure at first because of the extremely low prices about £17.95 each, on the highstreet they retail @ £25 each. A good saving of £8 on each card. We read a few reviews on the site and thought well lets give it ago. Sure enough 4 days later the package arrived 3 cards @ £17.95 each + P&P @ £4.95. One happy customer. This ..." Read review

Great products, great prices and fast delivery...

AdvantagesGood site, great prices and product range, 2 day delivery

DisadvantagesNone that I know of?

"...ordered a Bluetooth receiver from 7dayshop.com for my Apple speaker dock and was really pleased with the product and the price. Its a neat little gadget that makes my speaker dock wire free, meaning I can now make track and volume changes across the room wire free! The site was easy to navigate and I found what I wanted quickly. The checkout was straightforward and the delivery time to my door was just 2 days from ordering. I have used 7dayshop.com ..."

Very cheap, very slow delivery

AdvantagesVery very cheap, great selection on films and storage cards

DisadvantagesSloooooow delivery and website is slow to load.

"I first came across 7 Day Shop when I was told that my university photographic society purchased their films from them. When I checked it out I was absolutely amazed by the prices of the Fuji films! I have recently bought a bulk pack of 20 Fuji Superia 400 36 exposure 35mm film for about £25. I think that works out at about £1.25 per film! I’ve seen them retail at £4 in other places. I also bought some film dated to December of this year for ..." Read review

Unexpectedly good

AdvantagesLow prices, wide product range

DisadvantagesLong wait for delivery, reliability issues

"Having read a number of critical reviews, I was somewhat reluctant to order from 7dayshop.com. I was finally lured by its very low prices and my creditcard's guarantee clause. My order was wide-ranging, including a 4xD-cell Maglite, a few dozen AA batteries, lithium cells, USB cables, a Hama film-retriever and a battery tester. The Maglite, which was just under £18 (rather than £30+ elsewhere), was unfortunately out-of stock. I was informed of ..." Read review

7dayshop.com - on line 7 days a week

AdvantagesSome very good prices on photography & computing accessories

DisadvantagesDont expect your order straight away. Items are not always in stock, but put on back order

"I've used them over the years & they have always been reliable, although it can be embarrassing opening the door to your postman with a handful of little white envelopes from "Guernsey"! Because of the VAT rules here in the UK, they are able to offer a price with NO vat on items below £18.00. Hence your large order may arrive in many packets with a value under £18.00 in each. Do check out their clearence lines, we had a fantastic belkin video carry ..." Read review

AdvantagesCheap prices

DisadvantagesAppalling customer service, non-existent products

"i was recently in the market for a new digital camera (and thanks to this lot i still am!), and eventually chose the nikon coolpix c3100. after a price comparison on kelkoo i saw that www.7dayshop.com had the camera at a very cheap price indeed, as well as the relevant accessories (memory card, usb card reader). the site was quick and easy to use and i'd ordered the goods in no time. the accessories arrived 5 days later, but no camera, and here's ..."
