From my experience:

When I started online shopping and online banking (a long time ago), my preference was to always call customer care and get a quick answer. Over time I realized that in any customer support organization, those who can speak decent English are in Phone support, they are usually dumber. Those who can’t speak so well are in email support, they are slightly more sensible. 99% of the cases I send email instead of calling – be it Bigbasket, vodafone, airtel, banks, wallets, shopping. Advantages – saves time, helps me retain my temper and above all, higher chances of issue resolution. Sometimes, they may not have an answer immediately, email gives them time to find an answer.

This is only opinion and I am not stating it as a fact. Different people may have different experiences.

Email is best and slo gree that they talk really nonsense on call. One other time a CC told me that she even can’t register my complaint (without giving any resson) on call and I really controlled myself from abusing her. Later mailed them and issue got resolved. It takes time but then you can be very sure to get a solution using email.

I prefer Twitter & FB followed by chat,e-mail and phone call. Most of the time twitter is enough. During daytime it usually takes less than few hours and sometimes even within minutes.
E-mail support comes handy when you have complex or confusing issues which needs to be explained in detail or attach several references, follow-up etc. Call mostly if you’re feeling violent. https://cdn2.desidime.com/assets/textile-editor/icon_toungueout.gif

Also the plus-point for email is you have the written evidence for the concern
