I CANT BELIEVE I DIDN’T FIND THEM SOONER
As I have worked in customer service my entire career, I have always had extremely high expectations for any company and their employees for going above and beyond with Customer Service. Until I started shopping at Wayfair, I have never seen a company who consistently has the best customer service that goes above and beyond the call of duty on every single issue they encounter. I love to shop, but it is an absolute joy to purchase from them because you know if there’s ever an issue they will do any and everything they can to correct the problem at their expense and make it as easy for you as possible. In my opinion they are the best company with the best customer service standards that are currently in business. If I have a chance to buy something at Wayfair, I would buy it at Wayfair , even if it was more expensive, which it never is, but even hypothetically if it was, I would still buy at Wayfair because I know I would be covered and guaranteed wonderful customer service every single time. Congratulations to upper management of this company you have done an amazing job with your people. Keep up the excellent work, and you have a customer for life!!!
Replacing a damaged item
I received my order and part of it was damaged. I contacted Wayfair immediately to report the damaged item. I was assured that I would receive a replacement. But I have still not received any confirmation in writing that the replacement parts are indeed ordered. I’ve checked my account online and sometimes I see that a replacement was ordered, but most times it just says my order was delivered. When I’ve contacted again I was assured that it was being sent the next day and that I’d get tracking information. Still no confirmation or tracking information. I check my account again and no reference to replacement parts is there. I try and find a number or chat to contact again and can find nothing. I just get sent in circles. Your application is terrible. Nothing gets updated consistently. One time I find a contact number and the next time no contact number. I’ve found chat. But can’t find it again. I’m not that stupid. But your application makes me feel this way. While the people I’ve spoken to seem nice at the time I can’t seem to make any progress. Everything about this process has been frustrating. I’m very angry and I have a child who is very upset because we can’t put his bed together because it’s broken. Terrible. Terrible. Once I get resolution you can be assured that I won’t be using Wayfair again.
The Facebook of E-commerce
While I love most of the items I’ve purchased from Wayfair, it startles me how targeted the ads are when I mention, out loud, what I feel like I should be buying soon for my home. The combination of Instagram/Facebook and Wayfair “intelligence” is something to be mindful of and alarmed by for every consumer. I don’t recall feeling this anxious when first started using the app. Now if I mention anything, an alert pops up on my phone highlighting something I am thinking about getting.
Most recently I needed kitchen chairs and it magically appeared in a badge alert and on instagram and Facebook. I went to the app, perused a few selections, and saved a few to my board. Next day, magically the price went up on a set I liked the most (consistent with chairs I’ve looked at for my living room in the past). This combination prompted me to NOT go with Wayfair, and to choose another vendor.
I appreciate the customer service I’ve received in the past but I think twice now about buying from a company that listens so intensely to what people are thinking about when they don’t realize they’re being listened to. Shutting off the mic access for them and all apps that fit this mold going forward.
Love this companyI!!!
I have been ordering from Wayfair for almost two years. The items have been great. My first purchase was bar stools purple with stainless steel bases. They are an eye catcher setting off my room perfectly. The second was a patio se. it was a shock to have to put it together but I managed it by myself within two days, never having out anything together before in my life. The next items were smaller bedspreads one that I returned easily with prompt and very satisfactory customer service interaction.
Two months ago three metal beds, all easy to put together and superior in quality, the bedrooms look fantastic. Lastly draperies and sheers fast delivery. The items are of excellent quality so much so that I am ordering another set for my bedroom as well.
My experience thus far has been one of ease professionalism and integrity. I love the confidence, the quality and the products my home, apartment looks beautiful. I receive many compliments. I am not sure why others are experiencing difficulty for me this company is simply a adventure into decorating heaven!!!
Employees Are A Breath Of Fresh Air
I just purchased 2 vanities and had a few questions before placing the order. The first women that I spoke to Roxy, was amazing and very knowledgeable. I really appreciate your vast knowledge, how much you cared about making sure that you answered all of my questions and that I was happy! I was then transferred as I had some questions about about potentially opening a business account. I cannot remember the name of this employee, but she was a breath of fresh air to speak with as well! She was very informative, thorough and wanted to help in any way that she could. I do have to say, that in my limited experience in dealing with Wayfair, they seem to have great customer service. I believe that this will suit them well over time. In an ever changing landscape of online shopping and difficult retail conditions, it was a pleasure getting this type of information, care and service. I believe that Wayfair just put themselves in a “must look at option”, every time that I have to shop online. Thanks again!

A complete letdown and disappointment!!!
I ordered a trampoline on April 3, it said estimated delivery may 15th. I waited patiently and NEVER received any email stating the status of my order. I called a couple of times (ever time waiting for a minimum of 30 minutes) just to check on it and was never told there was any problem. It was expected to ship to me on time! On may 11, I called again since the status online still said preparing to ship, I spoke with Bernard and he informed me I would receive an email because it would be on a truck for delivery that day. On Tuesday the status still said preparing to ship so I called again and this time the customer support representative actually looked into the supplier and found out there were no trampolines in stock! Why did Bernard lie???? Why didn’t the manufacturer inform Wayfair that there were no in stock trampolines (I could wait until mid July for one....ya right!!!), and most importantly why does Wayfair not send any confirmation emails letting you know what’s going on???? I’m so disappointed and had to inform my daughter who has been waiting for over a month, that our trampoline is not coming!!! This was my first and LAST time shopping with Wayfair!!!! Thank you for being nothing but a disappointment!!!!
Cannot cancel an order even if cancelled within an hour
By Lola ZENY
This is the worst company I’ve ever had to deal with when it comes to canceling orders. I ordered 4 chairs. Within one hour I know these chairs were not what I needed so I canceled the order. I put the correct order # but it only cancelled 1 chair . When I tried to cancel the rest of the chairs it won’t let me because of course the order number would be the same for the 3 chairs as it is for the one chair. I had to call customer service the following day because they’re in the East Coast and they were already closed. I called at the earliest time possible and yet they said that that the order is now in their warehouse ready to ship and although she can cancel the order it might still show up. I beg her not to do that because I’m a tiny woman and I cannot carry three chairs to return them . Still she said she couldn’t do anything but she acknowledged that I had canceled this order. Wouldn’t you know I get an email today that supposedly three chairs were delivered by FedEx to my house. I was home all day and my 4 security cameras never showed anyone delivering a box . I would never ever order from Wayfair again!!! Now I have to fight to make sure I don’t get charge by this very inefficient company
Wayfair and Me For About 4 Years..❤️❤️❤️❤️
By Gail in Maitland, fl
Review-- Updated after 2017 Black Friday....I think my shopping with Wayfair is at or near 4 years now. I have many bigger ticket items (vanities, love seats, consoles, pantry, wool rugs, etc.) & other small beauties from Wayfair. People online have commented on their wonderful customer service and helpful nature and the quality/selection in all price ranges...Yep. True. No BS... After mom had passed on, I donated literally all in the house to downsize and make the house more to my oddball, more Bohemian taste. Try doing that on very little money. But Wayfair was there with the big stuff. And the funky little stuff. And the prices are... well...so fair. Plus delivery right to your door. What more could a person ask for? Even my UPS driver shops on their site...he has seen how well items are packaged so it's helpful to him also. (And this is not fake news...blessings.) Gail in Central Florida...OMG...I forgot. I found my stainless steel double walled Bodum French Press on Wayfair...no more stinkin pods!! Hello Trader Joe's Columbian In a huge mug...heaven...
Best customer service EVER!

I’m not sure if this is the right place to share this review, but I want to share my recent experience. I have been looking for a beautiful ceiling fan for awhile. I finally found one that I like on Wayfair. As it was being installed, we found a design flaw. I was devastated. Not only would I not be able to use this fan, but the thought of boxing it all up and sending it back made me want to cry. I called Wayfair and just knew it was gonna be a headache. Instead what I got was a very professional, polite representative that quickly understood that replacing parts or even the whole fan was not a good option since there was indeed a design flaw. He was incredible. I have never experienced such a smooth and easy return. I will DEFINITELY be shopping more with Wayfair. Amazing. I’m sorry I can’t remember the gentleman’s name, but if you can hunt it down, you should most definitely give him a gold star. I have told so many people about my pleasant experience. Well done Wayfair. Well done.

So far wayfair has been great and a pleasure to deal with! Always friendly and courteous when I call them. The products are all too notch for the most part- I’ve only had a couple of issues and I called about it and wayfair is always happy to make sure I’m satisfied. I just have to call again because I was supposed to get a refund for a table set I ordered and I only received a partial refund and am confused about where the amount came from. The table set I purchased was around 597 and they gave me a refund for 394 so I have to call again and I don’t have the time to stay on the phone for a while and it normally takes 20-40 min for a result so that’s my only issue is getting the refund or issue completed correctly and the time it takes to do it as I’m injured from an accident and disabled and have young kids to take care of and I get overwhelmed and easily confused and wish the help provided didn’t tAke S long on the phone.
