    Jeez -really?! :eek:



    I pretty much expect my orders to sit "in process" for 2-5 days, and then take between 5 and 7 days to arrive after that. Nothing's ever got to me in 4 days. Ever! I'd love it if it would, because when I order stuff I get all excited waiting for it to arrive!

    I'm very interested in what you said about beauty taking longer. I wonder why that is? :confused2: Most of what I order is probably from the Beauty Department. (On one of our accounts at least!)

    possibly the way they are stocked, but really have no idea Love A'kin, apart from the fact that this pattern is pretty consistent.

    I only ever ordered beauty/skincare items, but, after a year or so of poor delivery times, on top of the astronomical p&p, I looked elsewhere, and now buy all my beauty supplies from Jayne at JBD, Beauty Expert, SalonSkincare, Bath and Unwind, and Look Fantastic. All of these places offer realistic p&p, don't charge it for EVERY item purchased, (ridiculous), and have free p&p for purchases over a certain price. I invariably receive my goods within a couple of days and can't fault the customer service, which is uniformly excellent, especially at JBD. For everything else, I shop with Amazon, and get free p&p for ordering things over a fiver, and receive my goods a few days later.
    It seems that, for some reason, QVC is slow to deliver to some areas, and reasonably efficient in its timings to others. Bizarre.

    Well watersiren I think they ought to have yours and my address labels on speed dial so we can get despatched quicker!

    There ought to be some benefit to being a "Frequent Flyer" huh? ;) :D

    I'll be very interested to see how long my Leg Magic from yesterday takes to get here, since it's one of the few non beauty items I've bought lately. Fingers crossed! :D

    Default 5-7 working days for delivery eh?

    I am SO relating to this!
    Ordered a Stone Mountain bag on Saturday, it is still 'in process', whatever process is required to sit on a shelf. Also a Kipling bag ordered on Sunday or Monday, forget which, has just been shipped.

    I have never shopped online with any other company that does not despatch its in stock goods the next day!

    I am wondering if they have cut down on their dispatch/warehouse staff to cut costs, as well as increase p&p prices.

    In future shall buy from other sources whenever possible.

    if i had the experience some of you have had with qvc, i would never buy from them again, even if they were the only stockist. i wouldn't give them my money to receive hassle and upset. there are so many retailers out there... people may not be aware of them, but if they just put a question to the forum it is quaranteed that some peep will come up with the answers. xxx

    I just had a look at my last-but-one order from QVC and it was ordered on the 24th of July. Despatched on the 29th and I got it last Friday the 7th August! :eek: It's only 10 working days but it felt like an AGE!

    Especially when contrasted with something similar I bought on eBay on the 24th which arrived on the 25th! (I was well chuffed!)

    Well my SBC TSV arrived this morning and I only recieved the despatch email this morning too. It was delivered by the parcelnet man in a car and he wanted a signature for it too.

    Only jewellery comes quickly, I find. Everything else - especially beauty - takes about a week. The only retailer who did worse used to be La Redoute, but I notice they're sharpened up considerably and often get goods to me within two days.

    Mind you, I ordered earrings from another place via shop.com, and only when I looked up the retailer did I realise they were a few miles down the road from me. The goods were dispatched last Wednesday, first class, but only arrived today. A whole week to get ten miles and that's FIRST! Apparently. (Maybe they only dispatched them Monday, when I emailed to enquire?)
