Bidz.com Pros and Cons
We definitely like the free bid model of Bidz.com and the fact that some jewelry auctions end pretty low. However, Bidz mostly offers jewelry auctions which makes it less appealing and we don’t see the deals that we do on some penny auctions. Overall, Bidz.com is worth a try.

NOT GOOD. 3 or 4 items never sent. Kept my $ over $100 ..... In the beginng it seemed to be ok, so i ordered more and more. For months talked to 2 people in CS....nothing. Sorry....dont use this site. First they delay it, then you dont get it...but they keep the cash!!!!
The would not ship items won, nor issue a refund but store credit. Store credit doesn't do any good if they don't ship the item. I just received an email from BIDZ claiming BIDZ has been rebranded as EBIDZ, when in fact it is now MODNIQUE. They deleted my account from BIDZ/MODNIQUE. No item or refund and now no account
I have been using this company for ten years and was very impressed. Then in 2017 I ordered a "sterling silver" watch, but after a week of wearing it, almost all the "silver" was off and the base metal came out. They just shrugged off my complaint and told me to take it up with the service provider.
Late last year I ordered four items and when I wanted to track the parcel a few weeks later, saw that it had not been dispatched. My enquiries were ignored and then the website disappeared.
No star from me if the option were available.
I never received my orders or money back. I contacted them several times, but never received my orders, they even tryed to keep me calm, (Tracy Munteanu) replyed to my email giving me false story of the items, that I was specting. Since December 12, 2018, I didn’t receive no more replies via email from her. Now I noticed, that they changed the company name to Ebidz.com, to continue with this corruption,and abuse to clients. Crooked company not sending anything, just taking their money.
Is bidz selling under a new name? I came across a site titled modnique when you try to go to bidz. Is this another scamming company? I don't want too get ripped off.
My daughter used the site in December 2018 and paid extra for expedited shipping. Never received her merchandise, or her money. Couldn't contact anyone and when she sent an email, they lied and said she would receive merchandise in early 2019. They even have the nerve to keep sending emails to get people to use their crooked company knowing they aren't sending them anything, just taking their money.
They took my money and never sent anything either!, they are being investigated by the Attorney General of CA and they are Rated F by BBB...they need to be shut down the their assets ceased to pay everyone back they stole from!! file your complaint online https://oag.ca.gov/contact/consumer-complaint-against-business-or-company
They took my money & then emailed me saying that they were the victim of fraud and could not give me the item I purchased, nor could they refund me. They then instructed me to contact my bank and see if my bank will pay me back. HOWEVER, The site is still up and running for unsuspecting bidders. What they have done too many consumers is illegal, and many are seeking legal action against the company which is headquartered in California
Order on 28/11/18 and still waiting nearly a month with no message at all - tryed emailing quite a few times with no success.Hundreds of complains from people stating they have not received they goods so if it is not a scam i dont know what is and how can they get away with fraud.
Waiting for an order from October 04 2018 ,now January 11 2019 ! If you don’t want to loose money don’t buy anything from them !
My value judgment is that it’s a scam. I bought a ring with a certificate of quality, where I evaluated the “jeweler specialist” with whom this company cooperates. On the site and in the certificate, the estimated price was $ 21,000. When the ring was bought by me, for $ 3,500, I saw a terrible stone, in three days I was at 5 jewelers who were simply in shock. Each of them gave its price, and it was no higher than $ 850! I could not do the return, because I had to go abroad, on a business trip for 45 days. I think that the prices they put on the site are fictitious, they do not correspond to reality. If you go to the site, take any ring, bracelet, watch and look at their characteristics, then show these characteristics to decent professionals. To not be sued, they sign this fraud in very small print, which is almost invisible: * Appraised values ??are determined by 3rd party appraisal companies. These companies are not affiliated with Bidz.com. The appraised value is usually the highest retail value for the item. Bidz.com does not guarantee the appraised value to be accurate nor the ability to resell based on the appraised value price.
Thus, they mislead customers, these scammers use other people’s money, since it is difficult to get money returns from them, there are many victims on the websites who have not received any goods or goods.

I have another bad story with this company, not receiving a refund (for canceled order) of money, my second order was a clock of $ -190. I did not get a watch or money. Amanda M. (Customer Experience Specialist) is an automatic robot that responds to the mail, but only once, then you will be completely ignored !!! So this robot-Amanda) promised to return the money in 7-14 days. But, more than 40 days have passed, no money, no response to emails, no opportunity to get through. Completely ignored!
I think the actions of this company are criminal, buyers mislead, use other people’s money for personal purposes. If anyone has suffered from this company, I propose to unite and apply to the appropriate state structures to protect American citizens from fraud. Since, on the territory of America, unscrupulous people can not do business and invent their own rules of trade and deception.

The BBB did NOT give Bidz a star rating.. but an “F”. People.. do your homework.. they LIE !!!!
I made a purchase December 27.2017. Contacted bidz.com several times leading up to may about the status of my order. Every time a received a generic response stating that the supplier was back ordered and I would receive my order shortly. After submitting another complaint ticket (7 in total) I received a response claiming I needed to dispute the charges with my credit card company for a refund as I was not receiving my order as bidz.com was not doing business with that supplier any longer. My order was cancelled. I contacted my credit card company to find out it was past the 119 days they allow for a dispute. Bidz.com well no longer respond to my questions. I have lost $500 to bidz.com.
PLEASE DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM Bidz.com. If you do please be advised you well need to dispute your payment with your credit card company within 119 day.
Bidz was great a few years ago but now Bidz is the worse auction company ever. YES, they have an “F” rating from the BBB. I also cannot get the items I won shipped to me. This has happened twice now and I’ve contacted the BBB and getting ready to contact the California Attorney General and an class action attorney if needed.
The first auction I won I waited for my items. They kept stalling. I finally got store credit. Here’s the bad thing. Once again, I won more auctions in which my store credit was used along with more money out of my pocket. Again, THEY NEVER SHIPPED MY ITEMS. I requested a refund but once agian, they gave me store credit, I did not want store credit. I have been in dispute with them since. They are stealing from the customer. They will not refund your money nor will they ship your items. I have every single email to prove they are scamming the customer. DO NOT SHOP AT BIDZ.COM,
