Amazon...a website to be valued on the whole.

AdvantagesGood prices Honest review system

DisadvantagesNothing yet...but they need to keep their prices keen.

"I've used Amazon for years and I'm hard-put to remember when I was dissatisfied with their products and service. One important criteria for me is honesty in a company's review system and I've never found cause to question Amazons. Sure there must be dishonest reviews in there somewhere but, overall, it works well...and anyone with half a brain can spot the fakes. I remember occasions when they've been actively PROMOTING a product and STILL allowed ..." Read review

Advantagesshop in the comfort of your own home

Disadvantagesthe gift wrapping option can be expensive

"I have been a regular user of Amazon for around 5 years, and I have no idea how I managed before- It is very rare that I cannot find what I want, and the prices are generally the best that can be found online, although I do always check other distributors just in case. and far outstrrip the high street for value for money. Although you cannot actually feel or touch the product, there are nearly always a selection of reviews made by ganuine Amazon ..." Read review

Fabby Amazon!

AdvantagesEverything for me!

DisadvantagesCouple of things never arrived but it was sorted out very quickly so I can't moan

"Thanks to writing reviews on Dooyoo.co.uk I receive rewards for writing which I really enjoy. I usually opt to cash out when I get up to £20.00 and receive an online code via my email to tap in and spend on Amazon.co.uk. What Is Amazon?: Amazon is an online store which pretty much sells everything you can think of from socks to power drills. The beauty of this site is that although you can buy new and unused goods most of the time you can purchase ..." Read review

Poor Experience

AdvantagesCan be quick delivery. Easy to order.

DisadvantagesReturning faulty items can be Very expensive. Customer service issues.

"I am not a regular customer of amazon buying in fits and starts over the years so am not fully aware of amazon's business or it's practises. But recently i had a rude shock when dealing with two sellers both overseas, one from an external website. Basically i was practically left on my own to try to retrieve my money or get a replacement ( a Non Fake! cable) with the very minimum of assistance via amazon. Secondly trying to get an overseas sellers ..." Read review

Amazon, a great place to shop!

AdvantagesQuick delivery, a wide rang of products, cheap

DisadvantagesPrice for first class delivery's

"Whenever I need to shop for stuff, whether it be Christmas or birthday presents or even something for me, I use amazon! Amazon is a cheap and reliable website that seems to have everything you need, the website is very easy to navigate though and has a very appealing and simple layout. Although you have to pay for first class delivery (1 day delivery), you can also go for a free delivery service which doesn't take that long, its usually a 3-5 day ..." Read review

great website - plenty of choice great value for money

Advantagesgreat value for money lots of variety quick delivery turnaround

Disadvantagespostage and packing costs if your only buying few items returns procedure

"In my honest opinion this is a great website , plenty of choice and variety and great value products too and you don't have to wait long for delivery either . I feel that the only thing that could be improved from my point of view is the returns procedure is a bit tricky I would like to see returns labels provided in with the item to send back instead of having to print off a label and drop at a local collection point I think that its best to order ..."

Disadvantagesprices aint the full prices

"i have been a member of amazon for over a year and over that time, i havent had many problems with the site, it is extremely handy as now you can have an app on your smartphone so you can buy on the go. The site is very easy to navigate around on and find what you want, and also has a brilliant extra, called the wishlist, i use mine to work out what i'm getting my partner and the kids for christmas, and seeing as you can use gift certificates on this ..."

Great when linked with Amazon Credit Card

AdvantagesCheap, easy awsome

Disadvantagesminmium order for free delivery

"Awesome site ... where I buy 90% of my products including nasal wash. The only disappointing that they have recently introduced a minimum order amount of £10 for super saver delivery. Oh well - still my favourite site. I use an Amazon credit card which gives me 2% back effectively on purchases here - awesome Another great thing about Amazon is the site design which is very very intuitive and clear. I would love to see the ware houses of this company. ..." Read review

Fantastic service coupled with cheap cheap prices!

AdvantagesGreat price & selection

DisadvantagesYou can't print out the new laptop you've just bought :)

"I have been an advocate of online shopping since it first began. Amazon has, for me, been at the forefront of the boom for online shopping. The first "one stop" shop - started with books, but now you could, if you felt like it, kit out your whole house, garden and car with Amazon alone. In the past I've had issues with something not being delivered. One email to Amazon "not a problem sir, we'll send out a replacement straight away. As you've already ..." Read review

Still waiting for my in-stock item to ship six months later!!

Advantagesfair prices and a good selection of items

Disadvantagesfriendly but unhelpful service if there is a problem with your order

"...I still have no amp. Amazon.co.uk customer service has been of no help, I get replies from representatives in an outsourced customer service central, that are unable to do anything for me except to send internal emails and to simply promise that "this time we really will deliver by the delivery estimate". During this entire period the item has been in stock, and the delay is due to a "technical problem". Overall I am very unsatisfied with Amazon.co.uk ..." Read review

Amazon.co.uk: Not to be trusted!

AdvantagesDelivery is good.

DisadvantagesCan received stock that has been used.

"I placed an order with Amazon.co.uk that was “Temporarily out of stock”, after a few months I enquired when I would be getting the order. I was contacted that they had no idea and thus they cancelled my order. When I wrote back to Amazon.co.uk, they replied with an offer that I place the order with a fulfilled by Amazon seller and they would refund the difference in price from the order originally placed with Amazon. When I got in touch to do this ..." Read review

Great for everything!

AdvantagesLots to offer, easy to look around website.

DisadvantagesCan be unreliable.

"Amazon is great for anyone and everyone. Whatever you need or want to buy, amazon is there for you to search through. I range from searching for phone cases to clothing to educational books to help me with my education and always find something I want/need. It is so easy to search through the website, and everything is split into categories. There is also a search engine for you to type in your key words of what you are looking for. Amazon also offers ..." Read review

Made an ex-customer after years of loyalty to them!!

AdvantagesFine when you do not have a problem with your order. Usually quick delivering.

DisadvantagesVery poor customer services - rude and unhelpful staff. Zero aftercare when needed

"Ordered and paid for 2 copies of the LTD Ed Halo 4 Games (£60 each) but only got one set of download codes. Contacted Amazon and having spoke to Gracie Mae, Kerry-Ann & a follow up customer rep Kevin it is clear Amazon couldn't care less!!! I have been advised if not happy to return one copy (completely pointless as I have have tried to get across to deaf ears as I am still left with a disappointed child and cannot pre-order anywhere else as the game ..."

win win situation using amazon

Advantagesalways on time, good prices

Disadvantagescould't think about any now

"I became more active on Amazon since the beginning of last year. I moved to Florida for half a year for my studies and had to buy some pretty expensive business/marketing books. Some of those we not even available at the University Bookstore. Thus some friend suggested me to use Amazon. Some of the books I bought were used but in a really very very good condition. Most importantly, I paid less than in any Bookstore I'd checked and the books arrived ..." Read review
