Beware! Souq.com is Cheating their Customer

admin 07:45 Add Comment
Is Souq.com a cheater since they are advertising a Go Pro Hero 3+ Black Edition for AED 1,699 and if you are not aware of the specifications, they will deliver to you a GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition only!

Beware, just ordered GoPro Hero 3+ from Souq.com but they delivered older model.

Just got my supposed to be GoPro Hero 3+ which I ordered from Souq.com. After waiting for 6 days before they deliver the item, a different model from the one I ordered was delivered.

It is very clear from the description that the item which cost AED 1,699 is the GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition and not the GoPro Hero 3 Black edition only.

You cannot say that it is not intentional since the GoPro Hero 3+  clearly has a plus (+) sign on the camera unit itself.

This is what I got from Souq.com, an older version of the camera and not the Hero3+.

NOTE: Please share this article to all your friends who used to shop online for them to be aware of what might me happening on their order as the online shopping store will try to cheat on them so it's better for them to know the specification of the products that they are buying otherwise they might settle for second best. Just hit the share button at the top left side corner of this page.

Check one of our most visited page on this blog for Top 5 Online Store in UAE as we eliminated Souq.com already, please click HERE!

UPDATE: January 19, 2014- Souq.com with seller dod_uae is cheating their customer. I just returned today the GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition to Souq.com which was pick-up by QExpress. I telephoned their customer service thereafter and asked how about the replacement since they deliver the worng item. The operator told me that they will just return my payment since the item is not available but when I check the link of their advertisement it is still very much active. http://uae.souq.com/ae-en/gopro-hero3+-12-megapixel-hero3-camera-black-edition-6324339/i/

Therefore when you order this item dod_uae seller from Souq will deliver to you the older model, so beware!
On their Facebook page another person is claiming for Souq.com's taking and vanishing tactics in the name of Bebe Pinkya

She wrote:
"I have bought from u an item and paid trough ur website by card.. i had been waiting more than 1 month for it nothing happened n nobody called...?????? Ur costumer service fone does not work at all ...shall we consider it as taking money n vanishing ??!!!"

 

Hero3+ should be this one as described from their website: http://uae.souq.com/ae-en/gopro-hero3+-12-megapixel-hero3-camera-black-edition-6324339/i/

The worst thing on this is that the QExpess will pick-up the item which according to the telephone operator will take 3 to 4 working days and it will be returned to the seller and I might wait for another one week before they send me the correct item, knowing the delivery service from this online store, you have to have more patience. So with a small difference on the price it is better for you guys to check-out other online store here in UAE with a better service and a way faster delivery service, the likes of JadoPado, CrazyDeals  and much more. The two mentioned online store can deliver your item in a couple of hours only after you placed your order or at least within the next day unlike in Souq where the delivery will take 7 to 10 days or more if you don't follow-up and request to expedite your order.

Right now my goal is not to order from Souq.com again since it's very stressful and a waste of time to communicate with them, especially they don't have a free hotline like JadoPado and CrazyDeals to make a follow-up, you have to wait for a long queue and so you have to have enough mobile load for you to be able to speak with them.

This item actually is only AED 1800 in Apple Store UAE and they even sold it at AED1,650 during Apple One Day Only sale during Black Friday, I should have brought it from Apple Store and delivered with 24-hours only without any need to follow-up.

From Souq.com- delivery 7-10 days or more:


From Apple Store UAE, delivery winthin 24-hours only:


Description of GoPro HERO3+ (12 Megapixel, HERO3 Camera, Black Edition)

 Smaller, lighter and 2X more powerful, again.
The Wi-Fi enabled HERO3: Black Edition is the most advanced GoPro, ever. No expense was spared during its development, resulting in a GoPro that is 30% smaller, 25% lighter and 2x more powerful than previous models. Wearable and gear mountable, waterproof to 197' (60m), capable of capturing ultra-wide 1440p 48fps, 1080p 60 fps and 720p 120 fps video and 12MP photos at a rate of 30 photos per second, the HERO3: Black Edition is the world's most versatile camera. Built-in Wi-Fi, GoPro App compatibility and the included Wi-Fi Remote (normally a separate $79.99 accessory) make the HERO3: Black Edition all the more versatile, still.

Smaller, Lighter...Better
Weighing in at a scant 2.6 ounces, the HERO3: Black Edition is 25% lighter and 30% smaller than previous models.

Why JadoPado is better than Souq.com

admin 21:46 Add Comment
I have been a long customer from Souq.com since we all know that it is much cheaper to purchase electronics here in most items. However, if you want your item to be delivered earlier, you should consider JadoPado.

Right now i just placed an order for a Dell a laptop at Souq.com on January 2 and the their estimated delivery time is just too long from January 7-11 as you can see from the screen capture of my account from Souq.com.


I requested on their website if they can deliver it earlier but received no any response from the seller. I called them if they can be considerate enough to deleiver it earlier than the estimated time but still no update on the delivery status.

Meanwhile in JadoPado, I heard and read some articles that they deliver your ordered items the same day you place the order. So when you want a fast delivery of your online purchase, better visit JadoPado.com, but if you can wait 7 days or more  you can take a deal from Souq.com.

Update:
After i cancelled my order from Souq.com, I try to order Dell Inspiron from CrazyDeals.ae and they deliver it to my office the next day.
