Try not to turn this into a whinging/lynching thread about your experiences when dealing with GameSeek, we all know that online stores can cause good and bad experiences, this is a heads-up/evidence gathering exercise.|
Anyway, on to the point.
Since sometime on Thursday gameseek.co.uk has been producing this error message:
Our site is currently under maintenance, we apologise for any inconvenience causedMembers of a Facebook group I'm in have been commenting that orders placed in the last week or two have not been shipped, admittedly, GameSeek are notorious for slow shipping at times, and attempts to contact them via email and phone have gone completely unanswered. Phoning, in particular, is noted as cutting off immediately, suggesting lines may have been disconnected.
It's not just orders, someone who was signed up as a Marketplace seller through them has not been able to contact them either, through their dedicated seller contacts.
So, if you've perchance recently placed an order with them and it's been charged already, you might want to start checking out your chargeback options.

The bullshit they pulled with those cyclonic deals was unbelievable.
Good Riddance if true.

Weren't they the ones who had Switch preorders up for 200 quid and swore they'd honour them? Did that end up happening?
@BigOrkWaaagh As far as I am aware, they did honour those deals eventually. Suspect it didn't drive up the regular customer base that they hoped for.
Annoyingly, they've been pretty good for doing boardgames at stupidly low prices, which I've been buying every so often and had been browsing Wednesday night; a while back I was buying a game from another site which said they would pricematch anyone, I used Gameseek to compare against to try to add another game which I'd been looking at, they said that Gameseek were selling below what their cost price was and simply couldn't honour a pricematch.

Their Twitter feed has also been dead since then, which is unusual as it's usually posting regularly throughout each day.

They are gone by the looks of it, some poor fucker is about £480 down with his pre orders and outstanding orders.

They'll be fine...as long as they didn't pay with PayPal.
