Avoid Rediff and Indiatimes by all means.

ebay is comparatively safe to deal with. Their Paisapay system is very good. I purchased quite a lot of costly items from ebay - so far good experience. The nice thing is if you report that the item is not as described or defective or the item is not received by you, you will get back your money (of course the complain must be true!!).

Hope it was not costly. I never do anything on the net and am quite wary of the happening but I let down my guard and bought a book from rediff.com sometime back. It cost a measly 99/- and it was the main reason i bought it.
The book never arrived for nearly 2 weeks after which I got mail informing me that the book was out of stock and then I had to fight with rediff to get my 99/- back.
So all the best with your book.

I had a bad experience with Rediff shopping some 3 years back. I ordered a wrist watch worth 2.5k. I had to pay the cash on the delivery and the guy did not allow me to open the package while delivery. He just wanted to pay the cash and later when I opened it, I did find a watch; but I think it was worth only Rs.100. It never worked from the day 1 and I tried couple of servicing on it. Still no go..
Rediff shopping was a horrifying experience for me.

Unfortunately, I am seeing this thread after I ordered Rs 1000/- worth product yesterday.

I just cancelled the order today after seeing this. In my credit card transaction details, I did not see this transaction before I canceled the order. Even now, it is not reflecting. I called up Credit card service provider and asked him to stop payment but, unfortunately, there is no provision to stop payment.

Do you guys think I would get the money back from Rediff since
1. I canceled the order even before they dispatched the product?
2. They have not yet claimed the amount from my credit card(As per service provider)

Guys, Please help me if there is any other better way of handling this

Wow, so rediff shopping still exists. Heard a friend's experience like almost 8 years back and I remember it wasn't a positive one. Having said that, I don't think there is a risk to your money. You should get a refund as you canceled before the dispatch is actually done. Just follow up once with Rediff customer care and you should be good. Do let us know, when you get your credit.

Thanks for the confidence provided. As suggested, I followed up twice and raised a complaint and got a ticket number.

Yesterday, I got my money credited back to my card. Finally, I am happy that I did not get cheated

Does Rediff and Indiatimes still have operations in E-Commerce ?

They should have been shut down a decade ago.
