SHOPTO appreciation thread • Page 34
I don't get any information at the bottom of the screen and all the text at the top is near on unreadable because for some reason it is pretty much the same colour as the background.
I'm thinking it might also have something to do with works crappy IE.

Costs 5p a minute, just a heads up.
Woops late reply.
Cheers for the effort Joey
Mubal - I know, I think they keep it to try and stop you using the internet so much.
Heh, I rang, placed my order, walked straight back to my desk and I had an email saying my order has been shipped with an attached photo of my package with my name and address on already.
Those guys are rapid!

I can't rate Shopto any higher. I think the latest I ordered a game was at 16:40pm whilst at work and still received it the next day. I know some people have problems with them but I think it's more to do with Royal Mail more than Shopto.
Sorry if I'm late, but just went to the Shopto site for the first time since the redesign to make some preorders for the autumn winter rush to see if they've got Demon's Souls. Um... yeah.
It's fucking terrible. Like, really, REALLY abysmal. What were they thinking? I can't seem to find the option anywhere for a simple A-Z search of a system's games, no forum anymore. In fact, it's so minimal it feels like a game website equivalent of those avantgarde shops you get on the outskirts of a city centre the have whole shelves full of literally two items to make it look spacious and 'cool'. In fact they've gone from one extreme to another, before it was JD Sports or Primark where you have to walk sideways to squeeze past the masses of aisles and clothes stewn across the floor, to this arty shit.
And who signed off the 'white on white' colour scheme? It look me a few seconds of frantic clicking just to find the goddamn search box.
edit: Oh wait, it seems they do have Demon's Souls after all after checking Gamestracker.com. It's just the search function is so borked it kept coming up with "No results found". Actually no, it's because they spelt it wrong. Good job.
Hopefully the delivery service is as impeccable as before.
Heh, I go to order it and it just directs me to a blank white page. Christ sake. It keeps taking me to that same blank page whenever I click 'Buy'. As well, I can't actually find where the hell you sign in on the main page. So it seems I won't ever find out whether their service is still as good as before, because they won't actually let me order anything.

Hmm, could be teething issues or a browser specific bug? I just put in 'demon' and hit enter, found it, clicked it and buy, no problems.
Using chrome btw.

@SomaticSense What browser are you using? I always used to use IE but after having problems with their site they suggested I used Firefox (which is better all around anyway imo), since then i've had no problems with their site even since the redesign, though I haven't used that much.
It's worth trying a different browser anyway.

Using Chrome, the search box appears as white on grey, takes up a good chunk of the top middle of the page, says "Search" in it and is nigh on unmissable, I'm guessing something's not working right on your browser.
I'm using IE, which I know isn't the 'go to' browser, but I've had way too many problems with both Chrome and Firefox so ironically find IE to be far more reliable on this PC.
It doesn't matter now though, I've gone back to the delivery punctuality lottery that it is Amazon, as they also have it in stock for a similar price, and were pretty good in delivering the Spidey graphic novel which I ordered yesterday and arrived today.

Yeah it definitely sounds like a browser problem, it works fine for me on Chrome and Firefox.
And the delivery is still impeccable, my copy of Darksiders 2 was dispatched last Friday and arrived Saturday morning, and is only due out today!
Looks like their PSN instant codes have gone
Hi, this is the first time I've pre ordered with Shopto and not sure which postage to go with. If i go the the royal mail first class odds are I will get it thursday but if I pay the £6 fancy postage will I get it Wednesday or will it just guarantee it for Thursday? Any help is very welcome.

Wouldn't pay the extra postage mate, as Duffman said it is extremely rare not getting a game the next day with free delivery
Thanks guys will save the cash
My DPD driver Dave will apparently be delivering Pandaria at half four. not long to wait now!
I suppose in the meantime I could try and get my head around the new talent system.
@PenguinJim Weird, because both me and my partner have accounts with shopto and they are both registered using different cards for the same address.
Mine originally wasnt though, so maybe theres a loophole there that can be exploited.
I've followed the Twitter account, and when they put a games price up they tweet that it's 'recently reduced'.
Recently Price Reduced: Lollipop Chainsaw GBP22.85 http://goo.gl/TEvbk #shopto #xbox 360
@shoptonet this was under £20 this morning, how is that 'price reduced'?
They don't half spam the 'offers' out too. Had to unfollow.

Since the recent site downgrade, 85% of the time I try to login I just get an error message. It's a great piece of work.
Is the site down for anyone else? All Im getting is "Property Customer.codcli is not defined"
Not their only blunder recently either. Yesterday they canceled an order of mine, asking me to update my card details when they were already up to date. Meh, utterly irksome.
Yep up and down for me. I'm trying to check my broken PSN points order has been refunded.
I believe the four letter word they are uttering is FIFA.
I have a love/hate relationship with Shopto.
I'm also a hypocrite.
I love them as I get my games early...... yet that breaks the streetdate which is a tad out of order.
I love them becquse of the price........ in the past I've been sent European versions which I belive is why they are so cheap and I thought they shouldnt be selling them (please correct me if im wrong).
They also lose the odd parcel and you need to wait 20 odd days for a replacement.
But their site is rubbish and always up and down.
