As mentioned last week in my blog on internet shopping, I did the only thing a girl could do and ordered an item from net-a-porter last week. I had previously placed an order with Amazon.com many weeks ago and could not believe when both purchases appeared on my doorstep together on Monday. Trying to figure out which one to open – it felt like my birthday all over again, except of course that I knew the surprise inside.
Countless emails later, I guess you could say that I am currently in the negotiation stage, where the supplier is now offering me a 40% discount, which initially started at 20%. Am I being unreasonable to expect a full refund if they can’t deliver what has been paid for? How long will I be waiting for some resolution? Do I just give up and put it down to ‘a bad experience’. I guess it’s not always smooth sailing when ordering on-line, and you just have to accept that to try and sort the problem out from so far away, isn’t always going to be easy.
Meanwhile, has it put me off Internet shopping – definitely not. I’ve already seen a great pair of shoes onwww.ShoeSales.com.au that I’m keen to purchase. (Like I need another pair of shoes!!). It can get pretty addictive this whole Internet shopping – so beware. Before you realise, you’ll be converted into the comfort of shopping from home.
