"One of the most difficult tasks facing modern retailers is managing the conversion from offline shopping to online shopping – or eTail as it has become known. This is an equally difficult task for the catalogue shops – but in all cases there are great benefits to be had for both the retailer and the customer.

Poor services received with first order.

Advantagesnone

Disadvantagesbad services all round on my first order

"My boyfriend wanted to recommend me to Great Universal and I was keen to become a customer of theirs. I looked through his catalogue and saw a few things I was interested in. Then on the 27th November I ordered something over the net with them for him. He wanted a bed set for Christmas and chose one out of the catalogue.

Defective Goods supplied by Great Universal

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesSupplied Defective Goods, Very Poor Customer Support

Easy to use

AdvantagesQuick delivery

DisadvantagesSometimes things are out of stock

"I find this site very easy to use. If you have a catalogue at home like I do, you can sift through it and write down your catalogue numbers, then enter them on the order form online. Easy peasy!

best catalogue

AdvantagesFound great universal cheaper mostly than other catologues, Service is usually very quick

DisadvantagesI have found by ordering online that more often than not when wanting goods for comission it never happens, I have ring after to do this

"I have been an agent of many catalogues in the past and I have always found and come back to great universal. I have found it so much easier recently to buy online, browsing through the catalogue at my leisure and actually buying things that I would'nt have before. Love the sales, I have bought many a bargain, and I'm well and truely sorted for christmas. The only thing to complain about personnally, is that when I order anything on my commission ..."
