[Harp-L] Ordering Harps (or anything) online
"Dave" was upset about his online harp ordering experience...
<<<< I was actually able to talk to someone at the company the other day.
He said the CD was back ordered, would I like the harmonicas sent anyway?
Well, YES, of course I want the harmonicas sent. And by the way Harp Depot,
thanks for telling me about the backorder (after I called you).
I think we need to get the word out to people that want to buy harmonicas
online, that if you want one in any thing approaching a timely manner, avoid
Harp Depot in all its various incarnations. >>>
Dave, it doesn't seem overly horrible or confusing. There's usually a phone
number on any online site, and just simple common sense to back up your order
by calling AS you order, just to make sure communications are clear.
I agree you should have been contacted about the back order. But in the same
situation I probably wouldn't automatically assume the rest of my order
would be sent ahead of backordered items. Everyone's got their policies and
protocols and its a good idea to ask about them....follow up your inquiries and
orders with some old-fashioned human interaction.
I've never had a problem ordering from Harp Depot/Express etc.
I think I'd give benefit of the doubt (and be a little more proactive)
before using a public forum for disparaging or down-talking people for a single
slip-up. Just an opinion, your mileage (and/or patience) may vary.
