Hi I wrote a review and my experience with Doba and many of you had read it. I just got this letter which I am not disclosing personal infromation of sender but you can see how this company works:
Hi! I read your article about DOBA. I signed up with them 2 days ago... they called me yesterday and... I signed up for $299... idiot... I researched their prices and items for 3 hours yesterday and understood that I was riped off :( 50% of their items are out of stock... another 25% with only 1-3 items available. Prices are unbelievable!!! For example, 2GB IPod Nano (which is out of stock too) listed at the "Wholesale price" with shipping for ~$225... and it shoes MSRP of $384... IT IS SOLD ON APPLE.COM STORE for $149 with no shipping charge!!! There are so many other examples...
I called them to cancel but they said that will keep my $299... HELP!!! How can I get my money back? Can you give me any suggestions? I feel like a fool now :(((
unfortunately my only advise to him and all is to go to ripoffreports.com. You can find any reports against any company in any state. They have a form for you to fill out if you want help to try to get your money back. I also recommend going to the Federal Trade Commission and file a complaint there and also to econsumer.gov.
There are other ways to find dropshippers without paying monthly fees. Something interesting that I overheard on a conference a few weeks back, which they recommended Doba, (inside my head, I was like, yeah, right?), and they were saying that the way Doba works is by being like the man in the middle. Everything you do is thru Doba and they will do it for you . That is someone else you need to pay, is that what you want?
Just be aware and look for good resources. Salehoo.com has a one time fee for life if that is what you want and it does not reach $100.00 to sign up. I have not signed because I do not do dropshipping but you can also check wide world brands. They are based in Orlando Florida but I do not remember how much they charge. Just be on the look out and those of you who had just signed with Doba, hope you used a credit card and you can have them stop any incoming charges from them because they will continue charging your account.
Please if this has been helpful let me know. If you have any other comments of similar experience, share it. Thanks
