DID ANYONE GET THEIR PADDINGTON BEAR????

There was a great deal on Sunday for a Paddington Bear from buy it here & I placed my order as soon as I saw the deal. I just got an email from them apologising that Paddington won't be sent as they took too many orders:-( Did anyone manage to get one? I'm very disappointed as it was a gift for my little grandaughter.

It's poor form to say they processed them in strict chronological order when I placed my order as soon as I saw the post on Sunday and that was pretty early in the day. Really disappointed.

Sounds like this company has a habit of doing this going by past reviews. Must be from Scunthorpe :thumbsup:

I have not received a cancellation email as yet...what time did you order Holly? I am sure you were in the thread before me?

To be honest though I am not too pleased with Butithere so far, just come off the phone to them, whilst the CS operator was extremely pleasant I bought the offer of The Best Of The Doors, received today, clearly shows on website the 2 disk edition, received the single disk edition, and that is definitely all they have in stock....image error...sending it back for a full refund including postage, and in my covering letter "I would hesitate to utilise your services again, as this could be deemed as a trading standards issue, not to mention the unneccessary extra inconvenience it has caused myself in returning the item"

No bear here either, which is okish, but I was sent pot potpourri instead of Portmeirion dishes I thought I was ordering from the pic shown!! Maybe my fault too, as perhaps I didn't read correctly, but...good thing I never ordered 6 as I first intended...house stinks of false rose smell.

i would complain about that pot pourri cos look at the link it says bowl is decorated not that its pot pourri.I got two of the items i ordered the other said out of stock so i looked and its still in stock so ive ordered it again!!

buyithere.co.uk/pro…rri

My Paddington arrived today - he's cute - am v pleased HOWEVER ordered two other items and have been sent an extra one and been charged for it! Customer Services v unhelpful stating that I had ordered it. So have sent them the confirmation email and am awaiting reply... Not sure if I'll order from them in the future.

Well that's the first and last time I have used these, I ordered 6 items and have had various emails to say that not a single thing is available! I have never come across this with any online company before, shocking service IMO :w00t:

Got mine!! its brill

Got mine!! its brill



So you're the lucky one rudie111 - Congratulations on winning the lottery! :thumbsup:

mine arrived today-daughter loves it.

Commented in the other thread will post this here too.....

Shocking company, just called them, whilst the customer service staff are friendly enough they are just a face of a sham of a business.

Ordered The Doors Best of 2 CD, had to return that because it was inocrrectly advertised and was a 1 CD version..chased up refund still waiting on that...now this.....

Never received a cancellation email on this paddington order at all (have checked my spam filter) so was awaiting delivery, only to be told by phone my order was cancelled and they wont be having any more in....nice of them to contact me....wont be using this company again, unprofessionally operated, not aware of their stock levels and have a trading standards issue with what goods they advertise to sell

I am going to call them back up and ask for their head office address and write to them, if anyone else wishes to comment on how bad their ordering system/errors are feel free to post and I will forward this link.
