Tophatter and other online auction/market sites.
« on: May 18, 2017, 12:34:25 PM »
Don't know if many of you have used some of the online markets or auction sites that have sprung up in recent years but I wanted to share a couple of experiences I've had using these auction sites.

Most of the things are Chinese in origin (or at least the goods they sell seem to be) and are quite cheap. You bid from a very low point and hope nobody else wants the same item as you pushing the price up. I've bought a couple of things from them and am yet to find one that is exactly what I would have wished... trying to be polite. For example, I bought a 'hovering globe' that doesn't hover, a really nice watch that is unfortunately tied to the Optus network so isn't able to fulfil its full potential for me, a USB SD card reader that's quite nice and handy to carry around. I also bought or tried to buy, a small magnifying lens through a site called Tophatter.

I ordered it (cost $9 inc shipping) on March 29th and it was shipped, so I was told, also on 29th March 2017. So far, on May 18th 2017... still no sign of it. I asked for a refund through the support and mediation service and learned that I can't claim a refund until at least *50* days have elapsed since the shipping date!!

Seems to me this is a gigantic ripoff. Most people would probably not bother to follow up such a small cost and put it down to experience but what concerns me is that if this 'seller' has done this to a sufficient number of people, the interest they earn on the deposits could eventually become quite substantial let alone never returning the purchase price!!

I've complained yet again to Tophatter and am awaiting a response but to be honest I think I've seen the last of the lens and more importantly... my $9.

Be warned, you *might* strike a bargain but it's more likely you'll be ripped off or be less than pleased with what you bought! Buyer beware.  :(
