I ordered online 6 weeks ago. No sign of my goods. Nigh on impossible to get a response by email, phone or Facebook. Contemplating stopping the payment with my credit card company since I have no evidence this is a legitimate business which will ship my goods.

Worst shopping experience ever. This business owner takes your money when you purchase online and then you never receive what you ordered or hear from them again. Does not respond on phone, email, or Facebook (except to delete your question!) though is obviously about on social media. Fraudulent.

Ordered products that were shown as in stock on the website. Then to be told (2 WEEKS LATER) that they actually weren't in stock. Each email response took an average of one week and still has not been resolved. I've lodged my complaint through paypal resolution centre and am still waiting for a response from Weirder the Better. Absolutely terrible.... More

I purchased from the online store and after several weeks waiting for my products I emailed and phoned. As a last resort, after waiting another week I posted a Facebook message on Weirder the Better's Page and received an almost immediate response assuring me this was not the normal practice and my products were in the mail. I later received... More

Amazingly fast to deliver. It was here almost before I had ordered it, even in and amongst the Chritmas chaos! Looks like a quality product. (Devil Stick) Friend bought the same and is really happy. Can recommend as a quality company.
