TideBuy - dress return

My wife ordered a couple of dresses from this company not knowing there return policy; her hopes were to keep the one she liked and return the other she did not realize these were coming from China. The dresses arrived and were just not made or appeared as advertized, in short crap!. Fine we will pay the shipping and return them. The company wanted pictures of specifics and as to why we didn’t like them many emails later and pictures back and forth and no way you’re stuck with both crappy dresses and we are out 246.00. I tried getting Bank Of America to help (visa transaction) and they just kept putting up roadblocks. BUYER BEWARE TIDEBUY is terrible!.

What can consumers do to stop this company.. I lice in Australia and their customer service is disgusting. How do they get away with their poor business practice? Did you complain to anyone and if so did it do you any good? I would be very interested to hear. I have resorted to leaving negative comments on their facebook page..

TideBuy - I haven't received my order yet and i'm already having problems

I haven't received my order yet and I'm already having problems. I placed an order with this company website on June 28, current year. I paid this order # 263082 through PayPal, and sure enough the money was withdrawn in a matter of seconds. When I received the confirmation of my order I noticed they have changed the color of my original order. I didn't know what to do. On July 8th I have asked them to change it to black via e-mail, which was the color that I always wanted. Since they didn't response to my first request, I decided to contacted them by the Live Chat service they offered, some lady name Nicole, at the beginning she was eager to help but always claiming that the the tailor person was working on that dress and insisted that was the color I ordered. I told her that I didn't, this went back and forth for a good hour. I was call a lier, to be honest that I have made the mistake. At 2:32 a.m. our eastern local time I received an e-mail from this lady Nicole that they are sorry, but they wont change the order, that they are sending me the Ivory. I don't want it, especially when you get this type of treatment. Here in the States, even if the customer makes a mistake, they try to help and please the customer. I want my money back as soon as possible and I am canceling this order. I will go to the press, or whomever if I have to. I already ask this people to cancel my order and want my money back, by the way I should not get a shipping and handling deducted from the total paid, since it was free. Also in their refund policy they state if the cancelation is made after 72 hours and the item is alredy paid, they will give me a partial refund. They never mentioned how much. This is a nightmare that by reading previous reviews I should follow my instinct and never order from them. Bad bad way to run a business!

TideBuy - they rip you off and they are a joke

I bought a new tattoo machine through this site. The machine is awesome, but you can buy the same one off different sites. I did not recieve half of my order. I was missing 100 ink cups, an ink cup holder, 50 O-rings, and 50 rubber bands. All in which I kind of need.Then when I tried to dispute the order the never contacted me. So I wrote a bunch of emails, got one phone call and could not understand the guy at all. He said he was going to email me a page that explains what I need to do to get the rest of my order. Well they never did send the email. I have sent numerous messages and made numerous calls and still nothing. I will NEVER go to this site again. I recommend to just stay off of it. They rip you off and they are a joke.

TideBuy - I do not think that anyone is paying any attention to my emails

I ordered one dress for my son's wedding in July and it was the wrong size from Tidebuy.com (my measurements were accurate but the dress was too small and they did not honor the mistake... and had to keep it..then ordered another in size 12. My account payment said that I had not paid for it after waiting for awhile and I made another payment and they kept making me dresses and ended up with 4 of the same dress! One dress was refused at the door as I expected that they would refund my money for at least that dress, but No... They are still saying that they did not receive the dress even though the tracking number says they did and will not refund or return the dress to me as I have to try and sell all of the dresses. I have had such a runaround from them and their emails do not make sense. Communication so bad and frankly I do not think that anyone is paying any attention to my emails as each time it is the same confusing response...I will take some blame for not paying attention to their payment web site carefully..but any other company would honor those dresses and refund my money. I have contacted the Better Business Bureau and they have filed a complaint with them. So frustrated! any ideas?

TideBuy - tidebuy is kind of fraud

I bought a flower girl dress for my daughter. But what they sent me is just a " rag". The dress was made wiht reused cloth. I could see a lot of sewing holes on dress cloth. and even lots of long threads were fluttering out. The dress skirt laces are cut and attachend on dress cloth. The problem is the edges of laces are smoked dirty. The worst thing is they are not refunding me, saying it's still beautiful! Tidebuy is kind of fraud!

TideBuy - the dresses from tidebuy were nothing like real ones

I purchased 2 prom dresses for my daughter that were to be from dave & johnny collection. She tried on at store so we researched to see if we could purchase cheaper elsewhere. Should have known too good to be true. The dresses from tidebuy were nothing like real ones, too short for her to wear and not close to right fabric, beading or fit. I immediately emailed customer service about issue, they said send pics. Then those pics were not good enough, send "this way". Then wouldn't refund because it took too long! I am pissed and will tell everyone I know how bad this company is and a ripoff!

TideBuy - I wasted $300+ dollars on an ugly rag

I ordered a wedding dress and got it in 2 weeks. I was excited how fast it arrived to the USA from China. However, when I opened the package, the dress did NOT look like what was pictured/advertised. I then immeidately contacted them by email with intensive writing and even took pictures to proof how horrible and cheap the fabric used...3 weeks and a half later, they finally responded with a NO for return. I was so sad and disappointed. I even tried posting a my dress and the real picture together on facebook, but she deleted them. I will never order from this site again. I wasted $300+ dollars on an ugly rag.

TideBuy - refund

I placed an order with tidebuy. com over a month ago for a wedding dress... After reading terrible reviews, I contacted them immediately and cancelled my order. Its states on the website that refund will be sent if cancelled within 24 hours (Which it was) over a month later and around 40 e-mails they still havent refunded me. They keep saying I havent given them the information they need, even although I have sent them exactly what they need... Information given to me by the bank. I threaten to take it further and they appologise and then ignore me agin until I complain... Then they send more e-mails saying they still need more info. Does anyone know how I can report this company?

I bought an evening gown as per the picture shown and made payment in full. When the dress arrived it bore no resemblance to the original picture and did not fit although it was supposed to be custom made. I have lodged a complaint and even sent photographs as proof. There has been absolutely no response! This is disgusting. It will be the last time I ever order anything online. I wish I had contact details of a "policing forum" for sites of this nature? Surely it's in the interests of the legitimate sites offering a genuine quality garment to stamp out this type of site which gives them all a bad name? If anyone out there knows of one please let me know. Thank you.

TideBuy - dress not as described

purchased a dress for my daughters graduation ball. It took a long time to receive it and when it did finally arrived I was horrified. It was totally the wrong colour ( we ordered deep blue and got pale lilac), it looked nothing like the dress we ordered and the workmanship was disgraceful. I emailed tidebuy immediately with pictures of the dress we ordered and the one we received. I waited 8 days and having received no reply I contacted paypal who withdrew the money I was charged from tidebuy and investigated by claim. They found in my favour and returned my payment in full after I returned the dress. I found that shipping companies very expensive so I sent it by registered post at a fraction of what I was quoted from a shipping company. I will never order anything from this company again and would advise other people not to buy anything from them.

TideBuy - tidebuy is very misleading and extremely disappointing

Bought a long gown based on the picture on the website. The gown material and details are way off from the original. Sent them an email regarding the return and after 2 emails, they replied and want pictures to substantiate the claim. Learning from the other reviews that they won't give a full refund, I may have to give up the effort. No wonder, they are far cheaper than the same gowns shown on the other legitimate websites. Tidebuy is very misleading and extremely disappointing. Have used other websites before in ordering gowns, but this one is such a bad experience.

I have had the same experience from Tide Buy. I purchased a prom dress for my daughter from their website. It was pictured as a elegant, classy and quality dress and what I received was anything but that. The tulle on the dress had polka dots on it which were not in the picture, and the overall dress was mismatched and poorly sewn. After sending pictures to them describing my complaints, their response was sorry but we can do nothing for you but give you a discount on your next order. I would never order or recommend their website to anyone. They are clearly a fraudulent company that takes peoples money and it needs to be shut down.

TideBuy - never received dress

Do not buy from this company! We ordered & paid for a dress an feb 13, 2011 and still have not receved a dress. They asked when I needed it by and I said april 3rd and rita said she would tell the factory. This correspondence started on march 13. She kept saying all the things I wanted to hear because I didn't want to believe I just got screwed. But after being told time after time to be patient and then asking for more time I got fed up & requested a refund. She had the nerve to tell me to be patient because its their busy season - well no $#*! Sherlock! It's prom season and you claim to make amazing dresses at a low cost in a relatively short amount of time. When I asked for a refund because it was obvious I would not get the dress in time she told me no that whenever the dress got here I should just be happy & that if it came too late I could just give it away. So after I went on to tidebuy to log a dispute - which is next to impossible as the page refreshed after every 20 seconds & you lose everything you type. But I copied & pasted and it finally said my dispute was successfull. Well guess what when I went back the next day there was no dispute filed on the purchase. Luckily I went in to paypal to see what my options were on day 44 because to log a complaint you only have 45 days from the day you made payment. So I logged a dispute with paypal & the next day I got a response saying I would have a refund if my dress could not be delivered on time. Then once that dispute was logged rita at tidebuy got real nice & insisted my satisfaction was important & my dispute on their site turned up. But since then rita has gotten back to being unconcerned with my satisfaction & insists I can't have a refund & no one will respond to my paypal inquiries. So today I will escalate my claim in paypal if I don't have a refund. My daughters best friend also ordered from this company but she didn't get it custom sized and she did receive her dress but it looked nothing like the picture & was the wrong color. So they are having all new tulle & beading put on the dress so they now have no savings to show for the dress. Buyer beware! Do not order from this company & if you do be aware of paypals 45 day policy! We need to make sure no one else falls for their false claims and they no longer get to have a busy season.

TideBuy - I would not recommend this site due to incorrect sizing and very poor customer service

Ordered 2 dresses on 2 feb 2012, 1st dress came within 4 weeks, 2nd dress came today 62 days from ordering. Sent them quite a few emails asking why the delay, kept being told to be patient it is going through quality control. Although the dresses are made ok, the sizes are not what you ordered. Luckily for me I have lost weight since date of order and have dropped 2 dress sizes otherwise they would not have fitted me. I would not recommend this site due to incorrect sizing and very poor customer service.

TideBuy - tidebuy is a complete scam

Tidebuy is a complete scam. I'm trying to file a lawsuit against them at the moment. I ordered my wedding dress from them for 281 US dollars. It is completely horrendous- very poor tailoring and the fit is extremely bad, I sent them over 10 pictures proving the faults in the dress. Their customer service team is of very poor experienced and they keep copying and pasting the same sentences in their e-mails- I have sent over 20 e-mails back and forth and they are only ready to give me 20 US dollars in compensation. I even rang them today, but not to surprise- they don't speak English properly! NEVER EVER BUY FROM TIDEBUY!

TideBuy - total scam

This business is a total and complete scam. I ordered two dresses that don't come near the measurements I sent. Materials used in it are seconds and the quality of the work is nothing short of shamefull. Seams that are not even stiched, while others are reversed with the actual stiching line exposed to the exterior. Eagerly takes payment but pretends not to understand english when I call them. I wish I had read the reviews online before ordering from this crowd. Typicl very low quality Chineese scm business of which you will never het any satisfaction from. Non existant customer service.

OH MY GOSH! STAY AWAY FROM THESE PEOPLE! I AM GLAD YOU MADE ME AWARE OF THE COST TO SEND IT BACK. I WILL AVOID THROWING AWAY GOOD MONEY AFTER BAD. MY DRESS WAS MADE FOR AN AMAZON FEMALE. IT WAS MADE WITH TWO VERY HEAVY LININGS. I FINALLY BOUGHT A DRESS MADE IN THE USA AND IT IS BEAUTIFUL AND WEARS LIKE A CLOUD. THAT STUPID RAG WAS HUGE, HEAVY AND THE LINING DIDN'T MATCH THE FABRIC. I PAID ONLY $40 DIFFERENCE FOR MY MADE IN THE USA DRESS. WE REALLY NEED TO START BUYING USA AGAIN. THAT CAMPAIGN WAS SO PATRIOTIC AND REALLY DID HELP TO CREATE JOBS HERE IN THE USA. I THOUGHT I WAS DOING A GOOD THING BY BUYING FROM THEM, BUT NOW I REMEMBER THAT THERE IS NO FREE ENTERPRISE IN CHINA...IT'S ALL RUN BY THE GOVERNMENT. SO, IT IS THE "PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA" THAT WILL NOT GIVE US OUR REFUNDS! DO NOT BUY FROM THESE PEOPLE. I HAVE WARNED YOU!

Don't even think to buy from tidebuy. I am having a very bad experience with them. They sent me the dress after almost a month as I placed the order. The dress is very bad sewed, very poor quality. I have e-mailed them, but there answer was like "please keep the dress, we hope you are a good customer". How can I keep the dress if I will not wear it as it's very poor made? I have called them. Very poor English speakers Chinese (with American names). No result. Now they tell me that one month has passed away and there is nothing to do. One month of no customer help and theres nothing to do further. Very disappointed and bad experience. Be AWARE! don't go with this company
