    I ordered a Silver/Gold Cross Pen. A silver and black one was delivered. The pen was returned as this was not what I thought I ordered. I sent an image of the Gold/Silver pen and price that was depicted. On investigation it was found that the wrong picture was depicted - false advertising. I advised that I want a refund or the Gold/Silver pen as it was advertised. The same pen that was sent back was re-delivered to me 6 days later. I have since logged it as a Return once again!! What don't these people understand - I do not want the Silver/Black pen - I want the Gold/Silver pen as it was advertised or my money back!!! I still have no answers. This pen was ordered for my daughters BSc Hons Graduation which is tomorrow (19 April) - I still have no gift or money return!!!

    I will never order from Takealot again or recommend them to anyone.

    Just like the name, you really do want to take-a-lot of goods from this online store, with so much variety and good prices, one struggles to resist. Takealot is always one of the first places I go to check out prices, as i know I will get quality service and fast delivery, and when a problem does arise, it's so easy to lay a complaint which quickly gets sorted out, ensuring you stay one happy customer

    I regularly buy from Takealot! They always seem to have what I want when I want. Delivery is always on time. I've also had no problems on the odd occasion when I've had to return an item. They are reliable & consistent!

    Recently ordered me some coffee capsules from takealot, and it's nice how they actually have stock of the goods i want, unlike certain other stores which take 1 week or more to ship. Great using the app also.

    We have been a Takalot (Take 2) customer for more than 20 years. The last year our experience with them are very bad. Placing orders and pay for them, waiting for a few weeks and when you follow up sorry but out of stock and then refund your money. Check on the site the item is still available. Recently it was a bit better and with the last order I ordered and paid for and received a sms to state delivery will take place which then never took place and on phoning them it was an issue to get it sorted. Yesterday I order some stuff, paid for it and then received an sms that delivery will take place today. Order was received and on arrival at home discovered that only half of the order was in the parcel. When phoning them I was informed they have to escalate the order and have to investigate but to their records it was sent of to be delivered. The turn around time could not be given. I will never again order from Takealot. They have now lost a very loyal customer (20+ years). Their attitude so what there are far more customers that will buy from them. Losing one is not a big deal. Time that people start sending their complaints and put it on the web.

    Outstanding customer service and delivery!
    I live in the USA and am visiting family in SA. In the US I always use Amazon because their deliver times and customer service are both great. The family here all use Takelot and told me about their super service. Firstly – returns: my grandson received a faulty disc, emailed Takealot and the next morning Fedex collected the disc and a replacement was delivered the following day. So … when I wanted to purchase a tablet, I was advised to try Takealot. I have ordered three items from them in the past week, all at different times, expecting to receive them within 4-6 working days. Each time the items arrived within 2 days. I ordered my last item on Wednesday at 11.33 pm and Fedex was at my gate on Friday 11.30am – 36 hours !!! I am astounded at this wonderful service. What can I say, Takealot beats Amazon hands down – if I could give them more than 5 stars, I most certainly would.

    What a fantastic online shopping experience!!! Not only do they have everything and anything, they have loads of specials and really good competitive prices!!! Their delivery is super fast and your parcel arrives in good condition. The safety and ease of checkout is magnificent. I really recommend this great site if you want to shop from the ease of your lounge - or your bedroom :-) Whatever you need you will find and if it is out of stock Takealot will let you know when stock is available.

    You do not have to worry about getting broken goods or goods that do not work as Takealot is guaranteed good quality products.

    On Monday morning ANOTHER parcel arrived at our home for my daughter - this time from Takealot.com. This evening she excitedly came to open her parcel - a broad good quality guitar strap which she been waiting for. I'm not sure whether it was confusion or disappointment on her face when she saw her "black strap" was brown. No-one contacted her to see whether brown was acceptable, her order clearly stated "black". I'm not sure whether she is going to just accept the brown strap or whether she is going to insist on getting the colour she ordered. I do know that if these online companies want to be successful, they need to provide the option their customer requests.

    Sometimes I find the takealot.com website a little disorganised but price-wise - they're great. I often price electronics etc. on takealot and find that the price is always better. And their delivery is super speedy! If it's in stock, you'll have in a day or two which is the next best thing to buying it and having it straight away. So handy to have trusted online websites with good prices.

    My iPhone lightning cable has been acting up for weeks so I finally decided to just buy myself a new one and when I went into the iStore they were over R350 each! I was not impressed but I remembered seeing some on takealot.com a while ago so I took a look and found loads of third party options for far less than in the store. I was able to pay with my eBucks (thanks FNB) and the cable was delivered THE NEXT DAY! Talk about amazing service! Thanks guys for the speedy delivery. And my new cable works perfectly. Definitely a good buy.

    I was most surprised to read that kalahari.com will be merging into takealot.com within a month!! Hopefully this means an even bigger variety of products will be available!! The convenience of shopping online is wonderful - having it dropped off at my home makes it even more tempting to buy.

    This was a great decision. I am usually a bit cautious when it comes to online shopping (for obvious reasons) but friends recommended I try out takealot.com and I was not sorry when I did! Not only did I manage to get a copy of a DVD which I cannot find in any store, but I was able to pay with eBucks and it was delivered to my door in less than no time!! I thereafter bought a book for a friend for her birthday, again an unusual copy which I hadn't been able to find in stores, and it was delivered long before they said it would be!
    Great service and great selection of products! I also get happy vouchers in my inbox every now and again for kicks - love it!

    Talk about false advertising , Takealot does not offer COD orders regardless of what it says on the website.

    Don't bother querying it , the support staff will give you one BS answer after another , the simple truth is that
    they don't have that facility.

    Go elsewhere, their staff recommend it.
