This service is a rip off, not recommended. Over charged me, then stated there is a subscription charge plus cost of bids and you often not win anything and therefore no product. You are not guarented to get anything. I spent £28 then got charged another £59.99 subscription, won no product either. That is a lot of money wasted. I had complained about this and had an email back telling me to read T & C's. Strangely enough, the T&C's had just ben updated prior to sending me the info to cover themselves. If you wn a product, you buy at that price plus the subscription and bids. Can cost you far more than buying in shops. Totally avoid.

Won 2 items from this online bidding site 3 months ago, and still waiting to receive the items. They claim 30 working days for goods to arrive. Have emailed and phoned customer services to no avail. Everything gets ignored

I have exactly the same situation. Just want to warn you all that Bidwiz is exactly a fraud. I won an iPad2 3 months ago and there is not a single clue about my winning item. All that I received is just excuses, apologies and promises. Threw away 200 GBP stupidly for this ###. So take my advice: do not spend a single pence for this auction site, never!

I also reported this auction site as a fraud to the responsible authority. Anyone who is the victim of Bidwiz please report to http://www.actionfraud.org.uk/ to make them pay the price.

I have now spoken to the fraud squad part of my bank and they have looked at the terms and conditions they say the subscription charge should not be hidden in them and should be up front. I am hoping to get my money back as BidWiz are not within there terms and conditions as they did not send me the free gift they promise to do when you sign up. So they have broken there own contract.

I am also one of the victim, I spend more than hundred pounds to bid the ipod, but didn't win, that's fine as I cannot complaint about this if I didn't win the bid. But one month later, I found that they charge me £59.99 for monthly membership fee. I ask for the refund, and they said I have used the bonus bid so there is no refund. I ask them to closed the account in September, but they still charge me £28 in 13.10. That's was robbery. I contact the consumer advice bureau, but they said if the term & condition has said so, there will be unlikely to get the refund. Also, I purchase my bid via paypal and appear twice payment on my bank statement, one to paypal and one directly to bidwiz, they charge me twice for one purchase, I ask for the refund but they just ignore it. Everyone please stay away from bidwiz, it is robber.

AVOID BIDWIZ! If only I had read this before I got suckered by BidWiz for £150 thinking I was going to be able to get my Christmas presents. I immediately saw that it was impossible to find any items to bid on as they were all already bid to the maximum amount so I asked for a refund and after a wasted phonecall that dialled off after 45 minutes and 2 emails they sent a refund form which I sent back and BidWiz said they were processing and I had to wait 7-14 working days. Well Christmas passed and following illness I eventually thought I chase them up this week as there had been no refund. I emailed them and they have responded to my email and put £100 back into my Paypal which I do not accept as I want the full ammount refunded as I told them within 1 hour of opening the BidWiz account and well within the 7 day cooling off period. If anyone has the clout to make a case against BidWiz count me in please?

For how long will Bidwiz be taking 60 bucks from me monthly? I hope it's not forever.

Thank you all for making it clear that we should stay away from this site. I hope you all get your money back. I do not know if any of you paid with Paypal, but if you did, you can report a problem to them. I think you are supposed to do this in the first 45 days but if this is a widespread scam perhaps they would be willing to help. Good luck.

Do not touch this site I purchased only £20 of bids for a try out and 2 lots of £20 were taken from my account and now I have been stung with what appears to be a monthly charge of £59.99 which prior to this I get an email to say I have won free bids... free bids my ### !!! My bank have now put a stop on future payments and I am fighting for a refund and cancellation of my account... wish me luck
