Cheated by amazon and GATI
Order id 171-7655643-6105941

I placed this order on 6th October and today is 31st October, I am a Prime Member , the order was Prime fulfilled as well as amazon fulfilled.

Some part of the order was sent by GATI and some part by other couriers. The part sent by GATI was undelivered till today. They extended the date of delivery again and again and now asking me to come over them to collect the order with is not less that 70 KMs

Since one week, the courier is lying about the status of the delivery and I made 4 complaints. Nobody is putting effort to solve the issue, all are lying, everyone is just escalating and understanding the situation after that forwarding to higher authority. But no such real action has been taken.

A courier service has the audacity to update wrong information that the order is on hold as per customer request and when I contact amazon they takes no action, already one week over, delivery timeline was also over but nobody takes responsibility.
This implies amazon customer service proved its customer as a liar, as no action was taken or the status of the order was not modified as amazon could able to deliver on time, instead you are making a false claim that the customer asked for delayed delivery???

Courier calls up and asked the customer to travel 70KM to take the prepaid order?? how ridiculous !!! and after informing amazon customer care they sits idle and makes a bunch of copy paste false promise.

This is not the first incident with GATI courier, I made several complaints to amazon customer service but nobody bothers, I requested many times not to send courier through GATI but nobody bothers.

Part of the same order was sent by different courier but you guys will never change and end up sending some part using GATI. great .. if I ask you will make some false promises, ask for apology and will assure that it wont happen next time.. this is amazon nowadays.

I wondered why nowadays people lost trust on amazon, now I can understand the real reason. If a Prime member can face this situation with amazon fulfilled order then I just cant imagine about the seller fulfilled orders. I was a frequent shopper from amazon and suggested many friends and family but now I am afraid to say that I have already moved towards other marketplaces.

Latest Update: They are returning the order, saying customer has refused to receive the delivery!!!! Strange people. I never received a phone call for this status change.

Why to tell lies, why cant you acknowledge your fault amazon cant fulfill the order, thats it. Why to blame the customer always.

Another mail received.

As I agreed for replacement they wont give it, issuing refund saying its not available with same seller !!!

Amazon Status:

31-OCT-2016 Customer refused delivery
25-OCT-2016 Delayed delivery on request

Courier status:

31-OCT-2016 Undelivered due to CUSTOMER /CONSIGNEE REFUSING TO ACCEPT DELIVERY
29-OCT-2016 Undelivered due to CUSTOMER NOT RESPONDING TO CALLS

Conclusion: amazon is no more customer friendly marketplace, full of cheaters.
So think twice before taking Prime membership as well as placing an order as amazon fulfilled orders are also not safe.
Thy cant fulfill on time, and full of lies.

I sent a mail to [email protected]..in and this was their reply

Hello,

I understand your concern regarding delivery service with GATI courier. I completely understand your disappointment. That’s definitely not what we want our customers to experience.

Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience you may have experienced in respect to the delivery of this particular order.

We currently ship packages using Amazon Transportation Services (ATS), Aramex, Blue Dart, FedEx, GATI, Ecom Express, Delhivery, the India Postal Service, and several local carriers for standard domestic shipments, depending on the weight of the package and the distance it has to travel from our fulfilment centre. Unfortunately, there is no way to request a specific shipper.

Being an e-commerce we rely heavily on courier service. In spite of our best efforts the courier services doesn’t live up to our standards, I hope you understand.

Due to the amount of time that has passed, the package appears to be lost.

Normally we’d create a replacement order for the lost item right away, shipped at no additional charge. I’m happy to send a replacement order to you. Given the delay, I’m not sure how you’d like us to proceed.

If this solution won’t work, I can issue a full refund. Please let us know which option you’d prefer.

If you’d like a replacement for the lost shipment, please verify the shipping address below is correct when you contact us again. Here’s the address we have for your original order:

We’re working hard to provide a stress-free and convenient shopping experience at Amazon.in. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience you experienced in this case. We truly didn’t expect this would happen.

This was my reply

Again a copy paste reply

>We currently ship packages using Amazon Transportation Services (ATS), Aramex, Blue Dart, FedEx, GATI, Ecom Express, Delhivery,
>the India Postal Service, and several local carriers for standard domestic shipments, depending on the weight of the package and the
>distance it has to travel from our fulfilment centre. Unfortunately, there is no way to request a specific shipper.

If weight of the package determines the courier type then why for the same location same order id, part of same order was sent by different courier service? Similar items of another order id was sent by different courier service.

>I’ve forwarded your feedback about courier to our shipping department—I know they’ll want to hear about your experience. We’re aware
>that our choice of delivery services reflects on our business as a whole, and we appreciate your feedback.

This is not the first time you guys are forwarding the feedback, I made several complaint against GATI but nothing happened. This time also 4 back to back complaints and you sent feedback but nothing happened so far.

>Due to the amount of time that has passed, the package appears to be lost.

See the level of copy pasting customer service. The courier is calling me that he wont come to my place and the courier is with them and you are saying its lost.. another low from sht heat customer reps.*

I wonder why this happens every time with GATI? and why you guys always save them? Otherwise this should not be repeated again and again with me(FYKI this is not the first instance I am facing trouble with GATI)?

>Normally we’d create a replacement order for the lost item right away, shipped at no additional charge. I’m happy to send a replacement
>order to you. Given the delay, I’m not sure how you’d like us to proceed.

If replacement order is possible why the other reps informed me about that? I could have received the order long back then!!! FedEx took only two days to deliver the order at the same address.

>If this solution won’t work, I can issue a full refund. Please let us know which option you’d prefer.

Refund is not at all a solution!! I placed an order that means I need those items, so why shall I go for refund after wasting so much time?

>If you’d like a replacement for the lost shipment, please verify the shipping address below is correct when you contact us again. Here’s
>the address we have for your original order:

In this same address you guys delivered a part of the same order id i.e. Order # 171-7655643-6105941

Therefore how can you have any doubt that the address is wrong???

Anyway, if replacement of the undelivered orders can be possible do it ASAP. Moreover it was a paid order order and amazon prime fulfilled therefore this much delay and misguiding from courier and customer service is totally unexpected.

Why don’t you update the delivery status of the order as original i..e. you are not able to deliver?
As it is wrongly written as I have asked for delayed delivery.
I thought of getting the orders before Dussehra but Diwali passed and still I am waiting for the orders!!!!

Good going amazon in association with GATI. why dont you just through away GATI? I wonder what you guys love in GATI, which is the slowest and worst courier service service in India.

@GoogleCA @ZIZER Yeah , while first there was an update in amazon order status that I asked for holding up the courier
the fact is I told no one to do so##!!!

Later they called and asked me to take the courier from them!!!

Last update: They are returing the order as I refused, but when did I refused the order???
Through which mode they approached me with the order and I said I will not take the order.?

In fact I made 4 consecutive complaints on amazon chat in one or two days gap for each complaint
but everything they will make false promise nothing else

The mails send to they were unanswered.

Finally While I mailed qla.. they replied with the above mail

Actually one of my packages sent through India post has also gone missing from 10 days with the last update having left Mumbai. Anything they tell about escalating, contacting the courier service, contacting shipping is a big lie. Just ask them to put the carrier on conference and insist on speaking to a supervisor if the agent doesn’t respond properly. Tell the supervisor clearly that you are done waiting and ask them to raise a replacement order as it was amazon’s mistake. Prefer chat when you have enough time to keep them on hold as they try the delaying tactics on phone to frustrate you. Just do you browsing and stuff while speaking them on chat which is when they can have all the time to speak to the supervisors are raise a replacement request.

That’s the reason asking for a replacement is the easiest option. Also if there was a bank offer availed and if this item was used to cross the threshold you would end up not receiving the CB.

No offer dost
In fact I bought all these without offer.
Still the price same.

I bought around 26 T-shirts for my village kids
16 of which were delivered
remaining left
I thought of giving away during Dushera but you know the situation now

Why I am not placing the order again?

Why should I cancel a paid order, and you know its not easy to select T-shirts fro different age group boys and girls in large number??

Secondly, my concern is why they need to lie?
If you are not able to deliver the product, you should convey that to the customer.
Rather the customer care making false promises every day. escalating and escalating….

Again they updated another false claim that the customer had rejected the order.

So if I dont react it implies I am the lier and refusing the order ???!!! This practice should not be continued for long.
Previously flipkart also had similar kind of bad practice to blame customer during any cancellation from their end but they have corrected the same.

@no fpd

Yes from what I am reading I guess it has become rampant on amazon to blame the customer when they don’t want to deliver or miss delivery deadlines (courier has to pay for SLA misses and they have employed this tactic). Don’t cancel it even if it is without offers and agree only if they are ready to give a replacement as there are multiple shirts. Also ask them for a one month prime extension.

@no fpd I can completely understand how you must be feeling. Of late, I feel the same about their pathetic services. They have clearly understood that in a fucked up country like India, customer service does not matter. The only thing that matters here is promotions. Out here, people will buy even used condoms if given free of cost. Such wretched dogs this society is full of! So, the customers who think ethics and dignity are more important in business are no more given any concern by them. Almost every online store has understood this about us. However brutally they screw us, we will run behind them with our tongues hanging out once they announce an offer.

Yeah who cares the service, only price matters is the mentality. But they can’t go on forever with that mentality but it only requires them to be best among worst in the current situation. But I see many of them are so hesitant with mobi**** for the things they did. In fact there is a thresh hold and if they cross that mobi situation is sure to repeat https://cdn3.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_wink.gif

Still it gets to the front page when the offer is valid on Airtel. https://cdn2.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_toungueout.gif

Look at OP’s case. Full of lies and deceit! Can they do this in the US and just walk away?
In my case, they have processed a lesser cashback amount (SBI promo). Complaint raised till the resolutions level but no update even after two weeks. They have clearly understood that the customer will write some nasty mails or make some angry calls and then keep quiet. Because that’s what we can do in this country. A few complaints in social media at the most! What consumer protection is available here, in practice (there is a lot in paper, of course)? This is a land of cheapos and dumbos! Talk of noble India, my ass!
