    Box.co.uk legit? 9th Sep 19 at 6:09 PM
    I ordered a couple of days ago an electronic product on Box.co.uk - once payment had been made I then saw a My Account screen showing what Iíd bought which shows it had been paid for. I know Iíve paid for it as my bank required verification.

    But, no confirmation email was ever received and looking at the order in My Account shows no invoice number. Also the delivery target date looks extremely slow.

    Either this stuff they are selling is coming from some remote part of the cyber universe or they donít actually acquire the stuff to sell before itís ďboughtĒ by the end customer ie. me.

    Any views?

    What delivery option did you select when you ordered it and does that correlate to the date you are seeing now? A quick look on the site shows anywhere from next day delivery to 16th September as options.

    What did they say when you contacted them about the lack of confirmation email?

    Have you checked your bank account to confirm the money has definitely left your account?

    A few of their reviews refer to people receiving used goods instead of new.

    I've never used the box.co.uk website but I did use saveonlaptops.co.uk - both websites are the same company, they were just different trading names.

    Used them a few times for laptops for myself and other people, first time no issue. Second time the delivery never materialised. They sent another one 2-3 days later which was received and refunded the delivery charge. Other ones after that, no issue again.
    Money doesn't solve poverty.....it creates it.

    I have used Box once last year. New goods supplied, no issues in my case.
