As we know, write bad review on flipkart and you are pretty much gone. The most you can do is give them 0 stars and not leave a review because it wont get published and your account will get flagged.

Amazon also wont publish bad reviews.. I posted 2 stars for email gift cards saying, Once ordered it wont allow you to cancel or fix errors like wrong and non existent email address.. So you threw away that money for the card.. Since it wont allow you to block or change or even use that card yourself or cancel the order.. The only bad reviews they will allow is the normal 3 star with you dont like it. Not much details..

So I posted another 2 star review about sending me a opened food item.. They rejected it saying its not about product.. Amazon.US is not like this. If its relevant to the product and how it was delivered they will publish it.

Remember the guy who injected hormones into children’s food at the warehouse and over 30 died? But I get flippant answers here about how they know better.. Say that to the parents of those 30 children..

For this to have happened something very heavy fell on it. But you would think the box would show damage. I will ofcourse make ti worse because I hate people not taking responsibility. I dont know what happened and I have to consider the worst as a factor… This would be another throwing in the garbage event.. I sure would not buy this from the super market or any shop and I dont know anyone else who would. Sorry to say but I know very few with canine like behavior or even desperate enough to develop one. Its not like buying a slightly used car or TV set..

I bought books that showed wrong mrp + extra 100 rs delivery charge for each book from Amazon’s 3rd party seller – ADITYA BOOKS PVT. LTD.
They showed over 1000 as mrp and showing 70% off @ 350 but when I got the book, they were Indian editions and the price was 225.
I posted pics about it on both amazon as reviews as well as emailed them. To take action against that seller + refund tge difference.
They said it was ME that violated rules and that I was given a warning.
My review was asked to be modified i.e sweet talk about the seller or else they won’t publish.
They deleted my review 😑
This was last year.

P.S. @alienteck have you tried complaining to this email – [email protected] Today they took care of my dth delivery problem… albeit in a very weird way… 😅

I am going to take them to consumer court just to cause trouble.. Involved in so many cases right now its a joke.. I figure it will cost amazon a few lakhs to settle it (their in house lawyers and fees to file counter affidivates etc. I just want to cause trouble.. I have not started yet.. But I need to learn twitter and the like.. If nothing else ban amazon from shipping food to the city.. Everyone at the health dept was a student and wont take much to classify all food items shipped by amazon as a health hazard.. They have special rules for the city apart from the state and such. let them try to get that lifted from a government bureaucracy..

What I found is that amazon.in’s normal customer care email has become worthless. One has to call or email to higher ups for solving any issues.

This is when they claim :- “Earth’s Most Customer-Centric Company”.

Where are those words gone?


Overall I haven’t had a much of issue with Amazon and I am shopping with them from past 4-5 years. They were always helpful and solved my queries.

But deleting/not publishing bad reviews is just too low/cheap tactics. A good company is who face criticisms not just let away from it.

Flipkart :- They always do cheap tactics so don’t have any word to describe them.


+Ha for transparency. @alienteck

For what it is worth I dont like flipkart but their products on average ends up being much better than amazon which I use often. Have so much trouble with amazon it is pathetic but CC usually takes care of it but it is the point where I stop being a good customer..

You can only handle so much crap without being able to yell at someone.. They also dont publish half my reviews.. Although I am generally positive.. But the last one where I entered a wrong email address and adding that in the review that there is no way to fix it and they saying they cant post that?? WTF is that? And then not dealing with a food item thats compromised? or the review on that????

Two or three reviews of mine on Flipkart are still pending. I said against the seller on the reviews and those cowards didn’t pass it through for public’s view. Total morons those in Flipkart. Amazon, at least so far, has accepted all my negative reviews and posted them publicly. This is a rather serious thing, but consumers as usual don’t care for reviews and stuffs like this. They just purchase and upon receiving a working product forgets. But those who receive faulty/damaged products suffer a lot. This topic should be made sticky or something. Extremely bad practice by Flipkart.

Thankfully I never had that problem… tho what would happen in a Re. 1 deals…. would they send empty packet 😂
But I would like to add something here for everyone – One can RETURN and get refund or replacement in non returnable categories, e.g. Beauty and Personal hygiene products
But the problem should be genuine like damage or expired or serious health hazard problems, with full pics and if a video is posted from unboxing the package then thats even better!
I didn’t know about this at first but when I ordered a nivea summer combo box 2 years back but it was half the bottle leaked out + face wash missing, I was so angry that I wrote a long email and posted pics. They send the standard apologise copy paste email BUT asked whether I want refund or replacement.
I choose the latter and they send a new good package.

Yes have this happen often and they offer refund. Which is not what I want since it screws up with shipping and cash back.. Is actualy more trouble than it is worth.

But with food especially it should be no questons asked replacement. The delivery guy can check the product to see if someone ate it or not.

Their refund or replacement policy for non-returnable items is really good but only if your account has no history of abusing this feature.

I had face similar issues a few times in the past where I had to raise a complaint for wrong item delivered or I received a broken product. In one of my account they always ask me to email them image proofs but in my main account they never ask for anything and simply issue the refund. I don’t opt for replacement for obvious reason. wink I always tell them that I have pictures and video of unboxing which I can send them if they need it and the cc rep always says, there is no need, we trust you.

They ALWAYS offer me refunds. The last 3 times I refused and just kept the items.. The one time they lost an item.. Had to go through a lot of hoops because they cancelled the order and the total ended up under their 5000 limit for CB. Remember the the SBI rs1000 cashback last year.. No way would they send a replacement.. So either I lose the 1400 package or lose the CB. And since it was a month later the other items did not have return. Yes it took a month since they kept sending SMS with will be delivered today for almost 2 weeks, sure pissed me off with that one.. Then delayed and then delivery missing.. Then entire amazon center got washed away..

Had to order the item from china then as it was gift and by the time it came the festival was over.. But you can imagine, a refund is just not enough to deal with many situations..

ps.. CC gal got me to cancel the order in the end… Spouse was very upset and ready to delete amazon.. So just wanted to get out of it. But next time I wont cancel.. and then delete the account. Amazon should take a note of Act Of God.. maybe god is not pleased..

Its like trouble comes looking around for you laughing
I have the opposite problem. Flipkart has always published all reviews of mine, even the bad ones. But Amazon blocks half my reviews, especially for sellers like Cloudtail, Appario, etc if you give less than 3 stars for them.
And there’s also the fact that Amazon sells substandard products half the time. Maybe that has got something to do with it.

You know the problem I had recently… where I got the dth stuff but are still showing as “on the way” even after 3 weeks?
Well after finally complaing to the higher up and then finally asking why I’m after changing the delivery status, I told them I’m after the cashback from both amazon and a 3rd party site.
They asked the amount that I was supposed to get and gave that Full amount as gift card!!! But the delivery status is still on the way because of some great internal red tape BS LOL!
But since I got my cashback I don’t care about the status changing problem.

How?? There is no option to change anything in order status.. In fact there is nothing to even check anything. Order details just show the amount paid and email address it was sent to..
