Never ordered from them but if they are up to practices like this you have my full support, hukders should not be treated like this!
#2
Referring back to this thread where another hukders has been told about virtual stock by them and has been promised their order will be fullfilled just an hour prior to the cancellation.

They are a waste of time. Don't use them.

It's getting to be a bit of a joke with them now, even non-mispriced items have not been fulfilled for myself as well. It's more annoying to think that there are people honestly purchasing things for themselves or others, holding out from using another retailer, only to be played around. I don't trust them enough to actually order anything off of them now.

Wouldn't touch them again either. Shambles.

So if this has been going on for 4 years (mind I'v been buying occasionally from them for nearly just over a year now) why MODs are not doing anything else about it? When people had issues with Video Game Box, they immediately kicked the retailer out and this has been going for 4 years (or more?) and everyone is quiet? Is this because Gameseek is paying good commission or what?

never had an issue with them

Another recent example that I just saw (cancellations); mind they are still advertising the item for the price of the so called "mispriced" on their website up until today:

Evening folks - we're going to suspend the merchant for an initial 3 month period whilst we monitor this issue. It'd be great if you could keep us looped in on your experience (good or bad) with the merchant during this time. Thanks!

You could mention it in the newsletter. I am not sure how many people visit feedback or is it quite a lot?

I support this thread and wish to express my dissatisfaction with Gameseek. Thank you for your response admin.

I am glad they have been suspended. 5 orders over the past three months have been cancelled for the same reason as above. Seems like they are playing silly tactics! Will not be using them again in the future!

You have my support with this mixmixi, I've had orders cancelled (misprices) where they just lie and say they don't have it in stock, but when they fix the misprice mysteriously they have stock of said item, it's happened on their site and through Tesco direct as well

What's the difference between GameSeek and The Hut Group? Similar kind of practices and poor feedback yet continue to be promoted on the site

I support the ban, my last order at the end of August was listed as dispatched within 24 hours and delivered in 3-5 days. It took 10 emails and 3 weeks to actually come,so keep them off the site imo.

I think the difference is in number of repeats we see from each retailer. gameseek is using this sort of practise as a regular part of their standards. I also bought that IWOOT deal but tbh I think no one expected them to send us a £200 item for £4. That was clearly a genuine glitch which wasn't honoured but for example gameseek sells the mighty number one for around £13 on their website, when people ordered it, they cancelled the orders stating it was price error and then keeping the price unchanged on the website assuming everyone is out of their minds and no one knows the rrp of the game is around that price anyway!

Fair point. Hut Group have a fair few glitches though which usually end in a painful refund process but hey just my personal opinion around that specific company and if it was up to me wouldn't feature them on the site.

I think you are confused between a real glitch and a made up one Chanchi. The issue here is almost anyone who buys from Gameseek will go through their "virtual stock" bait trap at least once. I am curious to know how many times you've personally purchased things from Gameseek?

We're going to start allowing Gameseek on HUKD following this period of suspension. Please let us know how things go and we'll be happy to review again if needed. Thanks.

I haven't suffered from this issue. However, when I purchased Killer is Dead for PS3 they took rather a long time to dispatch it.

Virtual stock, selling games that they are unable to fulfill, should be against the law, how can you sell something you do not have.
