E mail today:
Dear Customer,
We have had an unexpectedly large demand for our Bird box camera and we are sorry that we are not able to deal with your order.

A refund has been issued to you.

[COLOR=Red]This large demand within a very short period of time is due to somebody placing this bird box on a Deals website without our authority and was beyond our control[/COLOR].:roll:

We removed the Bird Box camera from our website early on Monday Morning 17th November, immediately we became aware of this situation.

I would like to assure you that the bird boxes are being issued strictly first come first served.

Kind Regards

xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Well i htink they dont like disapointing people. It being put on here and them having to cancel the orders can have a negative effect

They didn't care about disappointing me - tried paying by paypal, and the payment went through, but realised an hour later, according to their website, I hadn't placed an order. rang up, and was told I must have done something wrong, and anyway,... they've ran out now, so I'd have to cancel my payment.

Terrible customer service....

But surely they have a stock system that allows them not to place orders when stock is depleted ? It does astound me that they need to sl*g off a deals site when surely it's their own business' inadequacies :?

The thing is probably 99% of their orders were because of it being posted on this website... they'd have probably still had them sitting there otherwise... I mean, how many people had even heard of the company before aliandk's post? I certainly hadn't....

I paid by Mastercard and the refunds back today :)

Can't understand why mine was cancelled as I ordered about 2 minutes after it was posted up ??? 60 orders in under 2 mins :?

You would be suprised. Many sites do not have a live stock system. Some are based on the ammount left unpicked etc.
I seem to remember the reason many small websites are not allowed is because one deal caused a company to go out of business.

yea

i got the same except i didnt get an email advising me, i just saw the refund in my bank account. phoned them and they had the cheek to say someone posted it on a website.

woooo, big wow,
