Charged for Backorder Items, Then Cancelled and Still No Refund
Posted by Freddie538 on 12/27/2012
RACINE, WISCONSIN -- We ordered (2) faucets, (3) sinks and (3) pop-up drains from eFaucets. The next day we received an email stating items were out of stock or on back order. We called to follow up on a timeline. eFaucets was unable to provide us with any kind of timeline. We decided to shop for the items else were. eFaucet still charged our CC and after (4) calls and 1 month later has not reimbursed our $800.

Again, we simply ordered items, they didn't have them, but still took our money and have not refunded it. They are total crooks. Don't order from this company!

We are having to file a dispute with our CC company. Totally lame.

Good idea to challenge/dispute the charge. It's very possible that your credit card company may have encountered problems with EFaucets before.

Alain is right on target - this is the ideal situation in which to file a dispute, and it wouldn't be surprising based on eFaucets' reputation that the CC company will be quite familiar with them. Good luck.

Dispute is right.

Very similar experience. After numerous calls, emails, etc. still have not received a refund for $600 order that was cancelled because they did not have it stock. Just sent an email to my credit card company. CROOKS!

Very Poor Customer Service and 15% Restocking Fee
Posted by Cyndeew on 08/20/2012
I purchase over $2500 worth of products and accidentally chose the wrong finish on one item. When I called to get information on returning it, I was told I would have to wait for 3-5 for a return authorization form and that it would cost me 15% extra. I gladly ordered my replacement product from another company that appreciated my money. Buyer beware - terrible service and rude customer service over the phone.

It's always a good idea to read the terms and conditions before committing to a purchase. That way there's no nasty surprises.

Confusing and deceptive
Posted by Mtcats on 06/01/2012
I agree that this is the most deceptive internet company I've had the displeasure to purchase. I ordered faucets and didn't realize that 2 showed 0 quantity when it also stated usually ships in 1-2 days. Next day I called about expedited delivery and was told order would ship on Tues from NJ. When order didn't ship, they told me items were out of stock and would not be available for at least 3 weeks. I cancelled and no mention was made of 15% cancellation fee. No where on the confirmation does it show items are out of stock. How deceptive can you be!!

I just sent them an email, letting them know that I will not be a customer of theirs, given the numerous complaint I have read.

It really surprises me how often a complaint about them is posted, given the specialized nature of their business.

Horrible Customer Service and Return Policy!
Posted by Kejm31 on 03/23/2012
Absolutely horrible company. Spent $70 for an item that needed to be returned and their return policy and service is TERRIBLE. They are extremely rude. DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY. It cost me $27.00 to return the item and they charged a 15% restocking fee, I'm totally out all this money.

If you look at reviews both here and on other sites, Efaucets has one of the worst records for poor customer service on the web. You're probably far better off going to a local plumbing supply or even big box store to do your shopping.
Posted by trmn8r on 2012-03-24:
Good advice, Alain. If you go looking for plumbing supplies on the web, you will start tripping over eFaucets complaints very quickly.
Posted by wjk898 on 2012-10-31:
You will also go tripping over their web site if you google an item. Its always one of the first 2 sites to come up. Jujst ignore it. I had the same exact experience only its now 3 months and havent seen a credit posted yet. I will call them but I dont expect much. I will get back about 30 percent what I paid for the article with shipping and that obnoxious 15% fee. Never use that outfit! Scheisters!

My first online complaint~~ever!
Posted by Karenjohnson on 01/10/2012
WISCONSIN -- I wish that I would have found this site before I ordered from Efaucets. My contractor had ordered a faucet from Efaucet and didn't have a problem so he recommended them to me. Here is my story. The day before Thanksgiving I placed an order for 5 items, two Kohler products and three Swanstone products. It was very late when I finally completed the order and after I hit 'send' I proceeded to work on my holiday plans. I realized the next day, on Thanksgiving, that I had made a mistake and I wanted to cancel the order. I also felt uncomfortable ordering such large items on line and really wanted to shop local. The day after Thanksgiving, which would be the next business day I called to cancel the order. The sales representative could not find it in the system anywhere. It wasn't listed under my name, my address, my phone number or my email address. I was completely baffled. She suggested that I might have gotten confused and ordered from a different company. Was I losing my mind?? Maybe I didn't hit the send button after all since I never received a Purchase Order or Confirmation email from Efaucet, The representative assured me multiple times that the order did not exist and it was not in their system. I thought this was very odd but assumed it must have gotten lost in 'cyber space' especially since I did not get a PO number. I told her that I truly hoped that it did not exist since I did not want that order. I want to add that I later found a similar complaint on My3cents with the very same experience that I did, ie where the order didn't exist. That was a big red flag for me and created additional doubts about this company's reputable business dealings.

Fast forward about three weeks when I get a call from the freight company wanting to set up a delivery time for the two Kohler items. I was flabbergasted, a bit confused and somewhat angry. I immediately called Efaucet and the representative was able to access my order right away. I proceeded to explain to her my attempt to cancel and that, according to her company, the order did not exist. How can I cancel something that did not exist?? She proceeded to tell me that it was my fault since had I entered my email incorrectly. I find this hard to believe since my email auto fills and I had received several emails from efaucet regarding in stock items and other questions I had on the products before I ordered. Having worked retail for many years I have learned that you never tell a customer that they are wrong. Bad business relations! I explained to her that I would not accept those Kohler products and that I wanted the Swanstone items cancelled. After that conversation I immediately called my credit card dispute resolution center to file a complaint.

The following day I found My3cents and realized it could possibly turn from bad to worse after reading other customers trials and tribulations from this sorry company. I thought if I accepted the Kohler products and tried to return through their system I could end up in a deeper hole since so many people had trouble with returns. I had lost all confidence in this company to be straight forward in their business dealings. In the end I did refuse those items and documented their return. I also tried to cancel the Swanstone products but they claimed it was not possible since they had already left the Swanstone warehouse. After many phone calls with Efaucet and my credit card company they wrote me a congratulatory letter claiming that the Swanstone order was cancelled and they were planning to give me a credit for two Swanstone products~~I ordered three. The credit amount doesn't make any sense. It doesn't add up correctly and nothing is itemized. I am disgusted with this company and I cannot believe that they are still in business. My next move is to file a claim with the BBB and the Attorney General in the state of Wisconsin. I want a complete return, every cent. I've taken so much time trying to resolve this issue. In my mind they owe me plus interest! I have never, ever filed a complaint like this in my entire life. In my opinion, their business practice is unethical. Do not shop with Efaucet!!!

I would agree that wisdom would suggest you purchase major items locally. Not doing so is inviting trouble.

With that said, however, I've got to point out that you did ultimately make the purchase with eFaucets. Some people feel entitled to being able to arbitrarily cancel an order being, "only two days later". This is not necessarily the case. Many vendors now do not house product independently. Their website becomes nothing more than an ordering system with the manufacturer. In such cases, THE VERY MOMENT you make an order, there are steps taken and costs produced which are not reversible.

They should have had a way of tracking down the information the day after Thanksgiving when you called, even if you did enter the incorrect e-mail address. However, even if they would have it doesn't mean there would not have been repercussions for placing said order.

Hopefully, all will work out well Karen. Even though you may have the frustrations and costs associated with placing and then later canceling the order, you will hopefully wind up with what you like and be able to place this all behind you.

Best of luck.

It is probable that the email address on the forms that you've filled out for questions before the order and the email address that you entered on the order form (supposedly mis-keyed) are logged separately --- so getting answers to questions and promotions might have been through one email and not the other*.

Since the item did not arrive until several weeks later, did you not notice the charges being made to your credit card?

In a way I'm jealous that something actually did arrive for you. I am still trying to recover a charge made by a vendor immediately after my order in August. Nothing ever arrived (supposedly to their facility so they can ship). I eventually did get a "refund" ... but then like the experience of many other customers, they turned around and "inadvertently" made a fresh new charge.

Whenever I am dealing with a new web portal, I do a Google search for it and try to locate complaints. My one failure is buying a Dell without seeing all the complaints about customer service.

It is interesting if you do that with eFaucets - they created a few web addresses that come up first, with "complaint" in them. One says "To reduce complaints we've created a Complaint Resolution Center..." Sounds like a red flag. Of course if you look further you will find a ton of complaints.

When ordering online, it is really best to be 99% certain that you want to follow through. web portals are set up to efficiently process orders, and unfortunately cancelling orders is too often not a smooth process (if possible at all). If you have to get into return shipping that is another can of worms.

I hope you get all your credits.

Only got part of the item, the button, of a garbage disposal air switch. Over a month now, still not received other part. They said it will take weeks to get the part. They will not refund until they get the button back from me. They failed to notify UPS to pick up button from me. All their fault but they won't refund.

This is typical behaviour for E-Faucets.
Posted by Disaster Worker on 2011-04-13:
Too bad you didn't check on this site before you purchased from EFaucets. I don't believe anyone has ever received merchandise from this company. I don't know why the AG in the company's home state hasn't shut this place down. Does anyone know if there is a physical address or is this business being operated from a home?

Terrible Service and Attitude!
Posted by Pici on 03/07/2011
I will never use this company or their products again. Their product are cheap, designed poorly, and use inferior material.

eFaucets will lie about everything. They say they care about their customers but only thing they really care about the $$.

Once you've paid, you mean NOTHING to them. I installed some of their products and now, when the products have failed and I am facing enormous plumbing bills for replacements, and repairs.

Do not purchase from this co
Posted by Consumerpass on 02/07/2011
An earlier reviewer had said the relationship ends once they have your money. That is very true. Not even 2 hours after I sent the order, my emails, concerns and questions were ignored. When I finally got someone on the phone, they told me sorry order is placed I cannot help you now. Worse customer service of all time and not consumer oriented.

Costly Mistake
Posted by Pandahansen on 02/04/2011
Almost immediately after ordering I received an email saying my order had been processed and would ship the next day. After 2 weeks, I contacted them and asked where my order was. They replied that they didn't stock that item. it would be shipped from the manufacturer and I might get it in "one or maybe two more weeks." When I told them that was too late and I needed to cancel their story changed again. This time the item was supposedly in transit, not to me but to them and it was too late for me to cancel. Their solution?? I should send it back when it arrived. All I will have to pay is freight ($120. each way) and a restocking fee pf 15% ($75.). I am now out over $300. on an item that I finally had to buy from someone else. I truly can't believe anyone does business with these people more than once! I know I won't.

I feel your pain. I am replacing my garden tub and instead of selling me the fiberglass tub and walls that I thought I was ordering, the lady ordered my a nice tub but with plastic walls that you glue on and to make matters worse the color doesn't match the tub. Can't return the tub because the plumber already installed it, trying to find tub surround to match tub and will return the surround. Still will be stuck with plastic glue on surround. The lady is trying to tell me that almond and bone are the same color which they are not. This happened after repeatly asking if walls were made of fiberglass and if they matched the tub.

If you paid by credit card, try to dispute the charge.

I've got a beautiful stone surround, thinking of getting a stone tub too.
