They have no system in place that prevents sellers from using the same gc themselves or from re-selling gc on another venue other than Raise. Check reviews on bbb: others have exactly the same issue as we had. Save yourself some grief, buy elsewhere. Bought a restaurant gc back in May and tried to used it for the first time in October and it turned out it had 0 balance. Raise said it was used in July by someone. Since i was out of the country during that month until mid august, there was no way this gc was used by me during that time. This gift card was worth $50 and was used in 1 go. I have never been to this location of ihop restaurant in my life. They denied refund based on pure conjecture: they have no proof we used it.

Tip for consumers: sellers can still use the gc they already sold on raise themselves before you use it or they can re-sell on another site without you knowing. either way, raise can't and won't do anything about it.

We ordered a new audio book (CDs) on 18 December that we intended as a gift for someone during Christmas/year end holidays but got a used CD-set instead. Contacted the book seller multiple times via email and they claimed they couldn't find our order, which was ridiculous. Their telephone contact is merely a voice recording message, no live person to talk to. They sell books via multiple channels such as textbooksrus but we purchased directly from their own site. We think it's just an excuse not to refund our dues.

Tip for consumers: Don't order from them. If something goes wrong, you can't reach anyone live to talk to. They only reply to email once every 2 days. Their customer service phone number (888-215-0780 or 800-910-8249) is useless.

We filed for dispute for 4 fake soaps that were sold to us 3 wks ago. Seller pinkbellaworld refused return for refund. Ebay adjudicator ruled in seller's favour denying us returning the remaining 3 soaps (for refund) that we never touched. Technicality upon which they based their ruling: IF YOU USE 1 OF THE LOT, YOU CANNOT RETURN THE REST EVEN IF THEY ARE COUNTERFEIT BEAUTY ITEMS, and even IF THEY ARE INDIVIDUALLY WRAPPED, SELF-CONTAINED AND SEPARATELY BOXED as our soaps were. (ours was NOT a case equivalent to one half used fake perfume or shampoo or a1970 bottled french wine that was half consumed/used and then discovered to be fake and the buyer asked for a refund for what's left in the bottle) Basically, the ruling sent a message to this as well as to other sellers: you can continue and are welcome to sell fake beauty items with no penalty whatsoever. Even AFTER we reported the said listing to ebay, the fake soaps *******38516 are still being up for sale by the same seller pinkbellaworld. We found a few threads on community page that many buyers were denied counterfeit claims in various cases. The 40 minute telephone conversation with ebay consisted mostly of the appeal rep's (Nathan) monologue repeating himself and at times interrupting our input: Case closed, I will hear no more of anything you have to add or say. Furthermore our feedback was removed when we pointed out that the soaps were fake, just because the dispute was ruled in seller's favour.
