Don't shop about, shop to...

Advantagescheapest prices guarenteed and great community

DisadvantagesNone

"...large community on the forums. Shopto.net have a policy that if you find a game cheaper somewhere else, they will match it with no arguments, this means the prices are continuously shifting depending on what other members have found and postage is free, which is the icing on the cake and you can often expect to get your game the day after ordering. (Not even play.com can do that every time) You do need to register a free account to buy with ..." Read review

Shop To, or DON'T Shop To - that is the question!

AdvantagesCheaper than a lot of similar sites

DisadvantagesParcels go missing, terrible customer service, cheap for a reason!

"...purchased a Wii game from ShopTo.net on the 1st of December thinking it would arrive in good time to get wrapped up and put under the tree for Christmas. I chose this site because the game was cheaper than most other sites and it guaranteed next day delivery. However, after a few days the game had not arrived so I checked its tracking number on the Royal Mail website - to no avail - there was no record of it! I emailed Shop.To about this but never ..."

Why Shopto elsewhere?

AdvantagesNEXT DAY (FREE) DELIVERY!, Cheap prices, Great accessible site, Very security conscious

DisadvantagesMany products out of stock too quick!

"...things I can say about Shopto.net is unbelieveable. I'll start off with the prices, which in my opinion are superb, constantly at least £5 below high-street prices, Game/Gamestation etc. The delievery is brilliant, with products coming in padded envelopes, as you'd expect. What I don't expect is for games to arrive on my doorstep a day before the official release date! This was the case with Halo 3:ODST, which I was very impressed by. I do get a lot ..." Read review

best prices on Wii Fit bundle, but be careful

Advantagesgood prices

Disadvantagessome not so good prices

"...ANY GOOD: I came across shopto.net on the forums of moneysavingexpert.com, where it was listed as being the place to go for best prices on the Nintendo Wii with Wii Fit. Being my usual sceptical self, I still wasted another hour surfing the net to find better prices, but I have to say I completely agree - they are the best place online to buy a Wii and Wii Fit package (currently just £234.99 delivered). So there's the first point - the prices are ..." Read review

Great Company, Great service.

AdvantagesGood prices, fast delivery, easy website to negotiate.

DisadvantagesNone to speak of.

"This is the first review of a company that I've ever written, but with Shopto's level of service I felt I owed it to them. The best thing is that it was just their everyday run of the mill service. They claim that they dispatch items within 5 minuets of you completing your order. So their slogan is order today play tomorrow. I can attest that they do indeed keep this promise. Once you have found the item that you are looking for they offer the ..." Read review

ONE OF THE BEST! Don't hesitate for a second

AdvantagesGreat customer support, quick shipping, hassle free.

DisadvantagesFirst two orders have to ship to the card holders address, but at least they care about security.

"I've been a happy customer with ShopTo for 6 months now and have nothing but praise for them. Quick delivery, great prices and extremely helpful customer support staff. Knowing if I order before 5.30pm that I'll get my item shipped that same day is an incredible service and as somebody who doesn't want to wait for his games is invaluable! The only problem I've had was with my copy of Football Manager that the courier company unfortunately lost (not ..." Read review

Shopto ? Shop Now !

AdvantagesCheap prices, Fast delivery, Customer Service, Discounts

DisadvantagesNone

"...my personal experience, I find shopto.net to be way up there with the best of the online gaming retailers, their prices are extremely competitive - Usually cheaper than the most popular websites such as Game, Gameplay, Play, Gamestation, etc. In most cases new releases seem to be £2-£5 cheaper than those websites. It's not just cheap prices that make shopto my favourite though, pre-ordering games is an absolute breeze, if you already have an account ..." Read review

Customer Service in tatters!

Advantagesguaranteed ps4 before xmas

Disadvantagespoor customer service, and will delete your account at random that has a pre order on it.

"Right: I have been told by them that i should have access to my other account now (aragog@hotmail.co.uk), but i still dont. aragog@hotmail.co.uk, had a pre order for a Playstation 4, which i took out on finance, i have already paid the deposit and set up the direct debit payments for it. After they closed aragog@hotmail.co.uk account, what happened to that order? Is it still on there system, because if it isnt, they have taken my deposit and the ..." Read review

once great now just awful

Advantagesfast dispatched

Disadvantageslying, 14 day wait for refund

"used to love shopto but of late this has to be one of the worst company's i have ever used. two items have went missing, shopto will make you wait 14 days before you can do anything, ask you to checked sorting office which is useless advice as they don't give you a tracking number. thought item might of been stolen or lost in post, but all other items from other company's have arrived, its only shopto items that have not arrived. one item was in stock ..."

Reliable for getting games to you on release date.

AdvantagesGood prices, reliable shipping

DisadvantagesSlightly unusual pre-order method

"...bought a few games off Shopto.net now and in every instance they have managed to get the game to me on (and sometimes even before) release date. The first game I ordered from them was Rockband for the Xbox 360, which was supposed to be potentially in short supply. I ordered two days before the official release and it turned up on release day. I was truly and pleasantly surprised, because other suppliers, such as Game, were reporting that it was ..." Read review

AVOID AT ALL COSTS

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesNon existant customer service, Failure to honour promised delivery guarantees

"ALERT TO ALL POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS:- AVOID AT ALL COSTS 'Modern Warfare 2' Initially considered this online store after seeing their pre-order promise and guaranteed delivery prior to mid day on the release date. Was looking forward to being amongst the first to go through the game following all the hype. Pre-ordered the item with at least a month and a bit to spare, the cash having been debited from my account on the alleged date of dispatch, being ..." Read review

Okay

AdvantagesPrices

DisadvantagesLayout of the site just makes it that little bit harder

"I ordered from here a couple of times, I didn't really have a problem with their service its just the lay out of their website really confuses me and it takes me ages. Ok I may not be the best at using computers but I do find other websites I go on to be sooo much simpler and easy on the eye. Having said that when you order from here I have found the service to be quite prompt and I always select the delivery option recorded so that I can track my ..." Read review

AVOID AT ALL COSTS - WORST ONLINE COMPANY EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AdvantagesAbsolutely NONE

DisadvantagesAbsolutely EVERYTHING

"I recently pre ordered (more than 2 weeks before launch) a copy of FIFA 13 due for delivery on launch day (choosing to pay in advance via paypal.) When i didn't receive the item I called the customer services to find out why, whilst i was on hold for a total of 30 minutes, I was repeatedly told by the pre recorded message that if I pre ordered a game with ShopTo that i was guaranteed to receive it on the day of launch. Once I finally got through to ..." Read review
