E-commerce has become more popular in recent years, thanks to the pandemic. So, many new online shops have popped up. One of them was Gameyore, a website selling toys.
Based on the information that we collected, we conclude that Gameyore is not a trustworthy website. It is based in Hong Kong and does not sell authentic products.
It is important that you research an online store before making a purchase. Remember, it is your hard-earned money that you will be spending. Of course, you would not want that to go down the drain.
Yes, you will receive your order if you order from Gameyore. But don’t expect it to be of high quality. Several people have made that mistake and ended up receiving cheap counterfeits.
Is Gameyore a scam or legit?
Gameyore is a scam. When Scam Detector.com reviewed the website, it gave it the benefit of the doubt and gave it a score of 14/100. But a YouTube video has exposed everything wrong with it.
Scam Detector pulled some content on Gameyore’s website to see how well designed it is. The company found that Gameyore’s website is poorly designed. Furthermore, it doesn’t contain elements in the metadata that could help its online presence.
That makes Gameyore immediately lose credibility.
Scam Detector used 53 factors relevant to the Toys industry to check Gameyore’s authenticity. That includes customer feedback, customer service in the Toys niche, and Gameyore’s Domain Authority.
The review company found that the domain name is very young. Hence, it gave the company the “New. Suspicious. Dubious.” tags. The Scam Detector says there’s little chance the company can be trusted.
On the other hand, the YouTube channel “Learning Crave” says you should not trust the company – not even slightly.
Learning Crave has listed everything about this website that is fake. Those would be the About Us information and the details on the Shipping Information page, for starters.
Learning Crave also claims that the Contact Information is fake. However, someone has claimed that they had reached and talked to the company regarding their product.
What they discussed supports the next claim, though. Learning Crave says that the return and refunds policy was fake. And this customer learned that the hard way.
We checked the next claims ourselves. It is about all the products having no customer reviews. That appears to be the case, and we agree that it is shady.
Another factor worth looking at is the product descriptions. They are suspiciously short. Bulk buy is also always an available option.
Trustpilot also says Gameyore is not a trustworthy website.
What are the pros and cons of buying from Gameyore?
The good thing about buying a product from Gameyore is you are almost guaranteed to receive it. While all reviews are negative, no one but one said they never received their order.
Another pro of buying toys from this online shop is it offers very affordable products. But that relates to its biggest red flag. This product sells cheap products because they are fake.
Another con is that Gameyore’s refund/return policy is fake. One customer has contacted them and was told they should return the product. However, the company did not provide them with the information needed to send the product back.
Gameyore review: customer service
According to customer reviews from different websites, Gameyore’s customer service is terrible. They get dismissive and sometimes even aggressive replies when they contact the company.
Gameyore review: delivery process
a. Delivery Time
Gameyore’s website says that delivery takes 7 to 14 days with Standard Delivery. Meanwhile, with Express Delivery, it would take only 2 to 4 days. But again, Learning Crave claims this information is false.
After your order has been shipped, Gameyore will send you an email to notify you. You should then be able to use the “Order Status” tool on the website to track your order. Simply copy and paste the tracking number or your order on the carrier website.
However, Gameyore says tracking information may sometimes not be readily available. Sometimes, it may even take days to activate.
c. Payment Methods
You can pay with Visa/Mastercard, debit, and credit cards.
You can cancel an order as long as it has not yet been prepared for shipment. Otherwise, you need to arrange for an order return. However, customers found its return policy not trustworthy.
Gameyore review: refund/return process
The website says that Gameyore accepts returns for a refund for all situations. But as Learning Crave said, this is false information.
A customer has confirmed that and even posted their conversation. The company responded to their email but never gave instructions on how to send the package back. And since they only give 1 – 2 business days, time quickly ran out.
So don’t trust anything on this website.
