  1. I totally agree with all the above statements as I am one of the customer facing the same issue.
    When I highlighted the issue every time I am getting the response as damaged due to usage where as if you look at the damage it clearly shows the quality of Wood used is not up to the mark.
    Pepperfry is not at all bothered about the wood quality to make the furniture.. They just look for some cheap quality good make the furniture and makeup it such that it looks excellent and sell it to customer and just forget.. it is customer who will suffer.
    My humble request to all reading this post not to purchase anything from PEPPERFRY and save your self from the torture

  2. Pepperfry Customer Support sucks big time! I placed an order of a bed and spring mattress on 6 Nov through their studio shop in Pune.. it was meant to be delivered between11-13 Nov and 16-19 Nov, respectively. Took delivery of the bed on 13th. But the mattress never arrived. Visited the same studio on 20th, was told the mattress was delayed due to Diwali on 14 nov, and will now be delivered between 24-26 Nov. Today on speaking with customer care, am told to WAIT till 30 Nov, and if I want I can write to them too, and a reply will come in next 48 hrs. Now here’s the irony of it all – on 7th Nov, I received an e-mail from P’fry stating the mattress has been collected by Gati logistics. The Gati tracker also confirmed the same on 8-9 Nov. But no delivery took place. On visiting their store on 20th, I was told they’re tracking it, and after a day another e-mail stated it’ll reach by 24-26th. Another email confirmed the delivery would happen on 26th. Today, 26th, they’re not sure of it. The Gati order tracker shows the mattress has now been collected on 19th Nov from the company – earlier it showed collection date as 7th. Today, 26th Nov, another e-mail received from P’fry states that delivery is “scheduled between 19 Nov and 19 Nov”…. So much for an update. Call centre agent is useless, and only trained to apologise for the inconvenience and delay. Meanwhile, my bed rests empty at my new home, awaiting the mattress. Written now to their Grievance Cell. So much for their much hyped Customer Support.

  3. Plz don’t buy any product from Pepperfry.. it’s only a name that’s it we get good and same products from other places like Insarf who give better customer support.
    We got the coffee table and dinning table in the month of June and we told them we will be shifting and will unpack in Nov they told let the Pepperfry person only come and unpack we were ok. Person came in Nov unpacked fixed and left we were busy shifting we didn’t check dinning table bush is not right coffee table chair is broken. The rude customer support is saying we cannot do anything it’s more than 7 days. Person who delivered never told we need to unpack to check the product. We believed it’s a brand and they cannot cheat but they did and not ready to replace. Don’t think the product will be good From Pepperfry.

    1. My case is not different than yours.
      In my case, i bought entire furniture from Pepperfry. One wardrobe was defective. They took it back. I had to order it again. In this transaction, For same wardrobe, I had to pay 1k extra. Customer support team sweetly said we will give you cash back of 15% which you can utilize. Little did I knew that it was valid only for 14 days. Second wardrobe delivered was also defective!
      I was again forced to buy new wardrobe.
      Same story repeated. Now this wardrobe was of less amount and the extra cash is in my Pepperfry wallet. Which again I can use only if I buy something.!
      Basically they are opening market for Ikea.
