theestoreonline.com is a complete scam!!!
They pull you in with cheap prices. Then they call you the next day and tell you your item is out of stock. Then they "upgrade you for free" and send you some cheap Chinese knock-off worth about a quarter of what you spent. Then they won't do a return. STAY AWAY from these people. You work hard for your money don't let them steal it from you.
I actually ordered 2 batteries and a charger for a Nikon D7100 camera. All name brand stuff at really great prices. That same day I called back to cancel the order because I no longer needed the merchandise. A male told me that it had already shipped and that I should just call when it arrives and they would send me the RMA for return. When the item arrived, I didn't even open it, I called and spoke to a female who put me on hold, then came back with an address for me to send it to. I said "that's it, no RMA, just send it back and you'll refund my money? She said yes. I was a bit suspicious and then finally checked these guys out. This seems to be there MO. That's when I opened the package and found this cheap junk. I can't even hope to sell it to recoop my loses ($101.00). Fricken crooks!
You will get some chinese replacement for what you offered. Then they will tell you they are sorry and will make it up...depending on your patience, they will keep telling you lies till the end of your life.
stay away -scam!!!
Never buy from "TheEstoreOnline". They are a classic bait and switch operation. Every single time, they will bait and switch. They have phone operators who act super nice and will suggest an "upgrade" of your item when they are supposedly out of stock (even though items are always listed as being in stock), but in fact the item upgrade is a cheap generic item, simply listed as costing more on their website.
I purchased a canon battery charger, and instead received a $#*!ty portable charger that only costs about 13 bucks online elsewhere. I tried to cancel the order but they lied and told me it had already shipped, even though it hadn't and my card hadn't even been charged yet! So I wrote a bad review, and sure enough they called me the next day, telling me that if I changed my review they would give me the item for free. I refused, saying I wanted people to know they sucked. 2 weeks later I received another call, this time saying I would be refunded if I edited my review to a mediocre one. HA! This is literally the only reason they have good reviews anywhere. Because they bait people to change their poor reviews.
THEY WILL NOT SEND YOU WHAT YOU ORDER. AND EVERY SINGLE GOOD REVIEW YOU'RE LOOKING AT IS BECAUSE THEY GIVE PEOPLE REFUNDS IF THEY CHANGE THEIR REVIEW TO A GOOD ONE. Seriously. I'm pissed off. They will probably call me again and offer me a refund and something extra if I change the review to a good one.
This company falsely advertises items they do not have at cheap prices than other websites. As soon as you place your order, you will get a phone call saying the item you ordered is either out of stock (even though the website said it was "in stock") or delayed. But, "I can get you a much better product for a little bit more money." They are really good at this bait and switch, and they even come off as knowledgeable on the items you originally ordered and the switched item. When you balk, you are made to feel like you don't know what you're talking about. DO NOT ACCEPT THE SECOND ITEM. STAND FIRM AND CANCEL THE ORDER IF THEY DON'T HAVE THE ITEM YOU WANT. EVEN IF YOU TELL THEM YOU'LL WAIT, THE ITEM NEVER ARRIVES, according to other reviews I've read on this company (www.resellerrating.com). They will promise you that if you don't like the item, you can return it in 14 days. Which is true, but they fail to mention that there is a 15% restocking fee if you do. Buyer Beware. Stay away from this company and order from a reputable site.
