Sorry keeping this thread alive, but with a more recent problem about foxy......I totally have to say they are terrible when it comes to customer service but are great at taking your money.

Anyway I placed my order and my item status on the site said ready for picking or something this was the same for about 5 days....so I had to email them and ask them what was the holdup.....yep no reply to my email but then the status did change to now dispatched...."surprise"....

So about 20 days later may be longer, yep nothing received. I have several emails, no replies to any of them and they have been a few. I have done all the checks it says to on the website and nothing.....

John, if you still read this fourm???Quote:

Customer satisfaction, take some time out and read some emails or forums like this one and take note....

Overall foxy is a waste of time and I should have paid the extra £5 and got my item from Amazon, at least they send you actual items.

I will try the phone number above tomorrow and see where that gets me? But what I don't really understand that they state that all items are sent recorded so it shouldn't be a problem to prove it was sent or if it got lost, surely the delivery company can confirm this? So they can do some customer service and get the item resent or refund the customer there money back, at least.......

Reading these threads must be like deja-vu for everybody who uses Foxy.co.uk
After seeing a DVD £4 cheaper on Foxy than anywhere else, I ordered, yes it was in stock 9 weeks ago when I ordered and has been so ever since, I ordered on a Saturday night and recieved a confirmation within an hour that it was in stock and was being picked. The following morning my order now read sent to dispatch. - Amazing I thought! It then sat in "sent to dispatch" for the next 6 weeks. All emails went unanswered, yet guess what? unlike any other retailer who don`t debit your card until your order has been sent, Foxy take it straight away!. Amazingly after exactly 6 weeks my order then changed to dispatched - unamazingly this has now been 21 days ago and no DVD and still no reply to any emails.
I urge everyone who has been conned by these obvious fraudsters, to inform their credit card company that they wish to issue a chargeback against the purchase and then follow it up with an email to TV`s Watchdog programme. If enough people complain to them, at least their scam will be highlighted nationally and hopefully warn off future buyers. Another plus would be that the coverage may put them out of business (If they ever had one in the first place!).

FOXY.co.uk are brilliant !!!!

Hi Guys,

Sadly this thread has cause no-end of problems for us and it seems a shame because it is untrue and unhelpful and we are a group of people running an honest company with the aim of giving an alternative to the giants like Amazon and Play to give customers more choice.

I will endeavour to address the points made in the thread and would appeal to each individual poster to please also post details when your problem is resolved, it is unfair just to leave comments on a forum if you have a problem without 1st giving us a chance to resolve it and second letting people know when it is resolved.

Please, if you are going to post an order query or problem you MUST post the order number so that we can resolve the issue, you should not be able to make a complaint unless you can identify the order and give us a chance to resolve the complaint and when it is resolved you should post the resolution or remove the original complaint.

How is this helping anyone?

I`ve been awaiting dvds (about 65 £ ) from those bastards since... 18 AUGUST that never came !! After a dozen of mails, see the mail i received last week :

This is inflammatory, contains insulting language, is anonymous and is untrue.

Quote:
Shouldn`t there have been a card through your door to bring the above fact to your attention?

Yes this would have been posted Special Delivery. More delivery information can be found here: www.foxy.co.uk/foxy/delivery_information/ Please note the difference between dispatch and delivery. We use Royal Mail for UK deliveries.

Quote:
In any case it is down to Foxy to send you a replacement. If you do not receive goods within a month I would contact credit card company and do a chargeback.

Please not chargebacks are an absolute last resort and we would never want a problem to continue to the point where you would want to request a chargeback. Please note chargebacks will get you blacklisted from ordering on our website and may get you blacklisted wiith other mail order companies so should always be a last resort. We read and respond to ever single email so please just try to resolve any problems with customer services.

Quote:
I have never used foxy but their prices did look too good tobe true for a relatively new company.

Well, it goes to show that Amazon and Play are making more profits from you then. Hopefully you will continue to support smaller companies like ours as we keep prices lower and give customers more choice than just the giants would like you to have.

Quote:
6. Foxy.co.uk neglected to send the parcel and now don`t know whether they did or not due to insufficient record keeping and are trying to wriggle out of their responsibility to their customer.

This is simply not possible. All items are barcode scanned and placed in a postage bag and tied up and handed to the postal service. We have a record of every single item, we know it`s weight to the gram, the second it was scanned and have CCTV watching everything being scanned, packed and dispatched. These are all postal issues.

Quote:
guess i` ll wait one week more and after will complain to my bank

Please contact customer service with your order number, it`ll be quicker.

Quote:
But my suspicion is that the parcel was simply never sent.

This is impossible, we scan every single barcode as an item is placed into a postage bag and then tied closed until it reaches royal mail in the UK. If it did not reach Royal Mail we would know because an entire bag of items would be missing, this has never happened. 99% of these problems are delivery problems, not dispatch problems.

Quote:
You should tell them that due to previous problems with your mail going missing it`s now being monitored and you will be contacting the Royal mail investigations team so you will need more information about the package like description of package , date sent , weight , cost of posting etc.

If you email us we can provide all of this information, we are working on making it available in the "My Account" pages to make it even easier for customers to track.

Quote:
If they haven`t sent it the last thing they will want is Royal mail`s fraud team looking in to it.

Fraud is a criminal offence and to imply or accuse a company or person of fraud could be deemed defamatory and/or libellous in a court of law. I suggest this comment is inflammatory and should be removed. I cannot reply to this comment because this may prejudice any legal action we may be entitled to take. I will check with our legal insurance.

Quote:
Have you contacted Trading standards

We work very closely with Trading Standards, we invited them to see our operations and they were very impressed. All they do is pass enquiries onto our customer services and they get dealt with by them and Trading Standards copies in non the replies. Normally we find it was just a problem with the customers email or spam/virus blockers somewhere.

Quote:
Unfortunately i cannot trace it because the value of your items is under £18. If you have not received your order by monday then get back to me and i will see what i can do. I will most probably speak to my manager and he will authorize me to re-send your order.

We are considering sending ALL items recorded delivery dues to postings like this that might incite people to deny arrival of goods to try to get a copy sent out. Amazon can afford that, we have to be a bit more careful to please accept our apologies for the extra time taken to do checks. Would people prefer to save an extra 75p on an item and have it posted through the letter box when they are out or would they prefer to pay 75p more and have to sign for items and collect from the post office? I`d be interested to know.

I have sent over 60 e-mails[quote]
we received 4 in one day, within a few hours. Yes, there was quite a lot of bad language. It`s nice to be nice, we cann blacklist abusive customers if necessary. Polite will always get a swift response, try it.

I spoke to this guy and his problem was resolved immediately.

if anybody is still having trouble with this lot i got advice from consumer direct. thet told me to send them a recorded letter of complaint which i did ,my dvds came within the week.so you can give it a try good luck

An email will have the same effect, please allow 2 working days during busy periods for a reply and check you are sure we we are getting the email.

5 STAR excellent

We have hundreds of thousands of happy customers, sounds like this one was a bit of a techie, don`t know, could have been a friend of one of the staff, I couldn`t say.

OK I got them Grinning

I suggest that you order as normal but keep the pressure on.

I get the impression that they have got a really good website, but haven`t realised how much work is involved in keeping such a site maintained at the same time as keeping everyone happy and the customers returning.

I was impressed that the site generates progress reports... but then they dried up.

If you get stuck with them then use the number above, just don`t P them off, or post anything slanderouse else you`ll get in a right mess.

Yes, all problems are looked into individually, normally any delay is just a postage delay due to the weather, traffic or busy periods. Most items arrive very quickly. And, yes, please don`t flame or defame, its not nice or helpful. Be nice and you will find people much more helpful.

Quote:
Would not going through your record and contacting the people who have already been emailing you?

We read and reply to every enquiry we receive, if you don`t think we are receiving them that is a different issue. If you want us to look into or reply about a specific case please post your order number.

Firstly, order numbers, please post them if you want a specific order investigated.

Secondly, be nice, we are nice people trying to run an honest business, don`t be paranoid, we only want you to get a good honest service, help us to help you and keep bringing you choice. Imagine if all the smaller companies were not here, what kind of a service and price do you think the large companies would give you?

Thirdly, please don`t flame or defame or post names and phone numbers of staff members, it is distressing to those staff and is publicly embarrassing, we respect all your privacy, please respect our staff`s, they are all really great guys and all want to help you.

Lastly, if a comment in this thread is untrue or out of date, please edit or remove it.


Thanks for reading all this from all of us at Foxy 8)

iQue (Harmless) posted this on Thursday, 24th May 2007, 20:00

I originally come across this thread though searching on Yahoo! (in the first top 10 results) trying to get some contact info for Foxy after they decided not to reply to any of my emails......and I think threads like this one are very important for today, and the future.

It makes other people think twice before they buy from two bit internet shopping sites. Sadly for Foxy it was my first and last purchase.

I learnt the hard way.......so learn from your mistakes..... and others, stick to what you know (Amazon, Play) no matter how much the price is!!!!

Make sure the company is established....first so do a little research like read these types of threads, before you read the price tag. Because it might not be saving you anything.....you will be throwing you money away and not to say your life!!!!!

:D

iQue please supply you order number so that I can check the status of your order. I assure anybody else reading this we NEVER, EVER would keep anyone`s money without them getting the goods they purchases as expected or fail to refund a genuine complaint made allowing for investigation time with the post office.

Yes, this is unfortunate, we have hundreds of thousands of happy customers but a few very vocal people on this thread seem to be shouting disproportionately loudly, I recommend taking such comments with a pinch of salt. They are opinions being expressed which is the wonderful thing about our society, so please de feel free to form your own opinions and provide us with any feedback so that we can keep improving. We have a very high positive feedback rating and are proud of the work we put into offering the best possible service and prices. I will gladly look into any order personally and verify the exact situation if anyone wants to post an order number here or contact us in any other way.

Yes, the contact form is quicker, we can`t read all the forums alll the time unfortunately.

Good advice!

Quote:

I have also purchased items from Play and Amazon, they really are very good. However, if you want the same quality items at a lower price you will find us cheaper on many things. We use the same postal system as them, the same suppliers, the same packaging and all our post goes in the same containers. The biggest difference is our website is focused on being less cluttered and our prices are keener for many titles because we have lower overheads. However, if you prefer Amazon then we can recommend you try the Marketplace for even more choice, you will find we also sell there as foxycouk and you are fully protected by the Amazon A-Z Guarantee. On our website you are protected by the Alliance and Leicester merchant bank clearing house which is an equally good protection system for you.

We have been selling reliably and successfully online for 4 years and have hundreds of thousands of happy customers, check :B

Quote:

Yes, and get both sides of the story! iQue, if you wish to reveal your order number which will not identify you then I can look into your case. I presume you claimed a refund and received it?

Hmmmm, untruth followed by scaremongering, where`s the icon for a pinch of salt :p

If anyone would like a discount voucher off of their first purchase from Foxy to re-assure you of our commitment to value then please just send us a message through our website and we`ll email you one back.

If anyone has any questions about our delivery or refund policy you can find more details here:

www.foxy.co.uk/foxy/delivery_information/

and here

First of all, thanks for the warning to be aware that you`re on Marketplace.

Now, would you like to explain why your "keener prices" means that Amazon is selling the #1 DVD "Pirates Of The Caribbean - Dead Man`s Chest" for £9.98, the cheapest it`s on Marketplace is £8.29, 10 other sellers have it under a tenner, and you are "keenly" pricing it at an astonishing £18.50?!

The other top 10 DVDs you are peddling are also more expensive than Amazon! :o

Unfortunately Foxy lack several........well for now let's call them elements "" but let's focus on Customer Service thing.......

1. Customer Service

Customers like to be treated with respect. If a customer emails you they expect a reply back???

But if like me, your order disappeared in the post ......"or never go sent in the first place"......you expect to get a reply from the 30 or so email I sent over the course of 6 weeks..."give or take a few days"....."which might I add I received back from Foxy.......yep nothing , zilch, nada....... despite adding my order number, address, name, date of purchase, and my autobiography"....you failed to reply to even one of them....and they were polite and nice.....may be Foxy can post a few on the forums as proof.

Simply because of this very important element, it's highly unlikely that people will use you, no matter if you give them voucher codes.

And Foxy is cheap but they can be cheaper if they want just like the many more two bit internet shopping sites, that are all based in "Jersey". It`s something to do with Tax?? not 100% sure I think I read it on BlahDVD's or Blah!! website which are also based in Jersey and have very good Customer Service skills...."They actually reply to your email's"...."WOW"..... new stuff or what!!!! .......and then there is Amazon Jersey.

With that said , again thanks for reading and i hope you guys/girls/people learnt a few things.........if not read the whole thread from page 1.

PS: Marcus, "PS Does nobody here have real names?"......that would be a firm NO!!!!...............

Hi "xfg",

For many top titles yes you will find the big companies have the best prices, that is because they buy in much larger volumes and sell at amost cost to help create the illusion they must be the cheapest for everything for the average shopper. You will find us much better with harder to find products and rare or deleted items.

At the time of writing we have 49,479 products available to purchase through Amazon Marketplace, we are the cheapest for 2,749 of them and for many others we are in the top 3 best prices by only a few pennies or are the cheapest seller in the UK or Jersey. I won`t post links because they will go out of date but needless to say you examples are not completely representative so please do look out for our great deals.

Kind Regards,

Marcus
