Hi! You came here probably wondering whether Bidz is just another auction site that has a reputation for scamming its customers or is actually a safe and legitimate place to join. If so, you’ve come to the right place. We explore this very question and share our findings based on gathering information of many real user experiences with Bidz.com. (Updated for 2013)
What is Bidz.com?
Bidz sells branded products like Gucci and expensive high grade jewelry. The website employs a bid system which, by default, lets a member bid on items by increasing its price by a dollar if the item’s current price is below one hundred and by 5% of the current price if the cost of the item is currently more than $100. Every time a bidder bids on the item, this functions as a commitment to buy the item.
Is Bidz.com a scam?
One good thing to say about this website is that they’re actually backed up by the Better Business Bureau similar to QuiBids.com. Bidz has been reviewed and has even earned an A+ rating from the financial review company. The website also boasts several reviews by high authority security sites like TrustLink where real customers actually provide both positive and negative feedback about business operated websites.
The infamy of Bidz.com, however, lies in its problem with delivery time and items procured. Customers are complaining that items are not delivered in a timely manner and that items are not in the condition they were presented on the auctions.
However after going through a larger sample of reviews, a majority of the reviews indicate that the items were indeed proven to be authentic and did have the correct specifications shown in the auctions but that some factors were seemingly intentionally left out on the site.
Diamond Jewelry Issues
These complaints are mostly centered on diamond jewelry products since a lot of members are saying that the items from the company do not have the expected luster or beauty. One example is concerning the quality of the diamond cut. Despite the confirmation of the karat, color, density, and other factors, cut quality was never said to be mentioned and as professionals know the quality of a cut most often determine the luster and shine of the gemstone.
