Dick Smith taking money but not delivering orders

Dick Smith recently upgraded it’s website.  Over the past couple of weeks, many OzBargainers have placed orders for various items using Paypal, only for Dick Smith to lose their order including any record of payment. Their customer service department have promised to contact affected users to resolve the issues but have left most people in the dark. This has resulted in users having to open a dispute with Paypal. DSE acknowledges the issue and have removed Paypal as a payment option.  There is no ETA on a fix so it’s recommended to initiate a Paypal dispute before the 45 day window closes.

Surely, this must be the most expensive parking lot in the world? Woolworths responded and has now increased the free parking period to 1.5 hours with 1.5 to 2 hours charged at $25. Never underestimate the power of social media in the hands of consumers.
