So I pre-ordered from this site SRCVinyl.com since December of last year. The pre-order was supposed to ship Jan 26th, been emailing this company for the last few months. I decided to check the bands records label site ( Metal Blade Records) and see that they have what I want in stock and probably since the day they released these records. Not quite happy about this or the website at this point I feel like I was scammed, specially when I go to see my " Ticket " I did with them on their site and now it doesn't work after I try to cancel my order. Not really a nice thing to do to a customer who pre-ordered from you!
Tip for consumers: Looks really legit, don't fall for it.
So I've been using discogs.com since Nov of 2017. At first I was kind of shy to use it because I wasn't to keen on a new website to buy stuff from. So I started searching my music interests and was able to find pretty much everything on any band and whatnot. What's cool in my opinion on this site is being able to see what date the records or cassettes were released. The details of all items are usually pretty good ( at least what I look up). Also getting to see other things the artist released that you didn't know about in another country is cool because all countries usually have different styles or ways of doing the same album ( changing album covers or with way the records look).
The buying aspect of discogs.com is pretty straight forward and goes with a rating system, so if you have someone with low reviews you don't buy from. That's pretty straight forward. I would also suggest using Paypal as well so if something happens they have a pretty good policy to get your money back/resolve issues.
As a seller aspects I don't really have one considering I have only used this site to purchase off of sellers. As of this review ive had about 50 ish records bought off discogs. 1 was a different variant of record that I asked for and I guess I could consider myself lucky or I know how to choose well :)
Just as the title states, it used to be a good email service. I don't know what exactly happened but with all the new updates it makes the website slow and annoying to use. Even on a pc or cell its still bothersome for me.
I personally don't mind it, I rather Facebook than "Tweeting ". I mainly use it to talk to friends or look up funny vids and whatnot. Sometimes dip into the selling part of Facebook but only with trusted buyers from groups! Apart from that what else would you use this for, it serves its purpose!
I ordered 4 albums on vinyl from this site since Dec. 19 2017, we are March 09 2018, never got my albums, spent over 150 CDN, GONE! Never got a tracking number no nothing for how much money ive spent. NICE PEOPLE ( Sarcasm), DO NOT GET ORDER FROM HERE!
