Testimonials

“Placed an order for the Otter box for the Xoom tablet.

Website happily took my money and said that it would be dispatched shortly. After a week, I sent an email as my order still hadn’t been sent – received an email back saying that the box was no longer being made and they wouldn’t be able to supply.

Can I get a refund? No, as I had received the money for the box as a gift in the form of a gift voucher (arranged AFTER I had found the product I wanted) they won’t refund. So I have $100 credit sitting on my Dstore account with nothing I actually want. I expect that come feb next year, my credit will expire and I will be out of pocket.

I checked with Otter – yes, they still make the box for the Xoom.

Dstore simply will not acknowledge this.”

“Ordered a Christmas present 3 weeks before Christmas to allow time for delivery. Was not sent within a week so contacted them daily for a few days and was assured ‘would be sent tomorrow, today’… Eventually asked for guarantee it would be sent by a certain day and by express post (at their expense as due to their incompetence, Christmas would be here before any present was sent). Couldn’t guarantee that so they cancelled my order without confirming with me that was what I wanted.”

Summary
There is no doubt that Dstore has a huge inventory of large categories of products, and this makes it one of the biggest online departmental stores of Australia. However, some concerns have been raised regarding both their customer and delivery services, which have shown some discrepancies in the past. You can visit Dstore by clicking here.

    Avoid dstore! It was simply the worse online shopping experience ever. They sent a wrong item to my order, and they didn’t even have the credibility to provide a store credit based on differences in price, as the original item purchased is more expensive than the wrong item delivered. It’s simply not worth it, best to purchase items directly from the official online shop. Worse online shopping experience ever.

    I would say stay clear of dstore. I ordered boots but thought I would exchange for something else. When they arrived I sent them back (unopened) paid for postage and returned to the address specified by the company. They said they received my returned boots, checked them and were going to issue me with credit on my account. Some weeks later the parcel with the boots were returned unopened and with a sticker on it to say they HADBEEN UNCLAIMED. Consequently they should not claim to have a return parcel policy that does not exist. Will never purchase from them again.
