Paid £40 for an item i was forced to pay by Shpock based in Austria saying it was legally binding despite someone telling me the seller was dodgy! No item recieved! Shpock say seek your own legal advice and call the police?! They will not help you at all. No one is protected. Thieves operate on this site! If you still want to use it BEWARE you will be robbed at some point and Shpock do nothing trust me!
It's very good app for the people who sell & buy, but most of the time loads of jokers they just like to make an offer, when the offer been accepted they won't get back to me. So hopefully this people should lock up their account
I have made several such good bargains thanks to this app, and have also sold things quickly! There are no sales fees, and it's easy to list. No bad experiences so far, despite often paying in advance and having the items mailed, including some pretty valuable ones.
Lots of old ads. Many sellers abandon their adverts or accept but back out if deals. Very little buyer protection and getting through to shpock is impossible. The big joke is the legally binding sale thing they make a thing out of when you use the app. Good luck trying to enforce that or get any help from shpock at all. This is effectively the digital version of the bent guy down the pub who has a mate that can get you..... Just don't expect to see the thing you bought or your money again or if you are selling, the buyer will not turn up or haggle further when they get to you or come mob handed or, as has happened to me, come back and pestered for a full refund a few weeks later because they had changed their mind. Or the classic one that has done for me today, "cex won't give me more for it so I want some money back off you"
Selling should be able to delete offers that you feel your not happy with with a message as buy can delete theres. Users can delete there offers but a seller can not. Why? Also you should be allowed to message a user that has no ads or share a ad with another user on shpock.
Beware of Scammers! This website provides a platform for counterfeit products and criminal activities of some individuals similar to Gumtree. Only support you will get as a victim is that Shpock will write a message to Suspects.
In addition to general bug fixes and improvements, with this release we've:
