  1. Hi,

    I am writing this post with heavy heart because amazon has crossed all limits of irresponsibility, I have experienced worst kind of customer service from amazon.

    Last week I ordered

    Occasions Mid-Sized Foosball, Mini Football, Table Soccer Game For Indoor Football Soccer Game For Birthday Gifts

    but I received entirely different product. I then requested amazon people to replace it, took it and ordered replacement.

    Today I got the replacement product but it still not what I ordered.

    I have realized that Amazon has zero respect towards their customers.

  2. If one need to buy any electronic item (example TV), don’t buy on Amazon. It’s most unprofessional and non-customer centric. You’ll find customer care (outsourced) to be most pathetic. You can’t reach any employee in Amazon. CEO Amit Agarwal doesn’t bother to reply. I purchased 3 nos 43 inch TV (they sold model that’s not available in open market) Since this didn’t fit the slot, I requested for replacement with 32 inch. Despite agreeing not to claim any difference, outsourced customer care response is without empathy.

  3. Dear Amazon team I have ordered mobile phone rs. 16999 and my order automatically cancelled by Amazon agent . I bought this phone for my father as birthday gift and I need this phone tomorrow onward this is not my mistake this is agent delevery bit mistake he called him many times but he didn’t pick my call please helo to get tomorrow

  6. Hii
    I had made an order from amazon of sony company The lead I sent is a very fake lead. Local leads provided to me. I want to know from amazon why they are selling in such a fake way? I Called Amazon Customer Care Twice The customer care people said that you will receive the complaint ID on your mail.
    You people ask for feedback, those customer care people think about it. Customer problem solved. No, why do you give false consolation? I want to know that you customer care give me comfort When will the money be returned, I have not been a complaint yet. I haven’t received any complaint. I want to know why this lie was told?

  7. Hi,
    I really don’t know this is the right way to showcase my complaint or concern in front of The Amazon king of online sale, and made their own Policy which Company supportive not for Customer’s, with the one famous tagline ” Bika hua maal vapas nahi hota ” this is the way online sale & profit going Up and Up and Amazon’s pockets are going full & safe,

    I also like to share my worst experience with Amazon and the customer service team said ” do whatever you can do”. I bought a product Smartwatch Order # 403-5660773-9673125 (GOQii Smart Vital Fitness Spo2) delivered on 17th Aug 2021 on day one Tried to coordinate with respective support team regarding replacement or change of product because the dimension & features showing in advertisement this product is not supporting the all feachers, Now in return policy they provided limited options which completely showing the intentions to make customer fool passing the days so that return policy also not to support like Customer Care.

    My suggestion to all online buyers before closing any purchase with Amazon please ask them for policies which they follow because it can change product to product, rest after this I will completely delete Amazon from my life. Because Promotion of CHEETER’S & BAGGER’S are illegal in my Country.

    Thanks & Regards
