Most items are expected to worn and used; this may bother some consumers.
Buyer beware! It’s definitely a treasure hunt which I enjoy. However, the shipping costs have gotten VERY overpriced. They also charge a handling fee on top of that. Seriously, they get the items for free. Total profit but gonna charge ya extra for packaging it up. Plus, now Shopgoodwill is charging sales tax even for out of state destinations. Won’t be shopping with them any longer. Farewell
Terrible shipping, descriptions, and service. If you want to overpay for broken items to ship slowly, this is the place for you.
I was high bidder on an auction that was posted to end at 7:03 pm . However Goodwill allowed and accepted a higher bid at 7:50 pm which is unfair. I contacted the seller and was told they had no answer for me but would send my question to their corporation. i have not received any response from them.
Buyer Beware. Shop Good Will has gotten greedy. In many cases, starting prices have increased to retail value or a high reserve established. The total cost (after adding on handling charges and shipping costs) aren't competitive with other auction houses. Shop Good Will doesn’t disclose all issues but doesn’t accept returns. So yes, you might find something unique, but the odds are it’s in poor condition when you get it, you’re going to pay too much for it, and you'll have no option to return it.
Separate charges for every step , and above acceptable shipping rates.
SHIPPING IS TRIPLE OF ACTUAL CHARGES, ITEMS AREN'T DESCRIBED CORRECTLY
