The worst. I am simply letting everyone know to NEVER EVER buy anything from them 'cause it's either gray market with no warranty or plain counterfeit. I left negative feedback on eBay and they told I can get my money back if I revised it. They said they issued the refund and asked me to revise and to "wait" to my refund to be completed. They NEVER issued anything. It was just a ruse to get me to change it for selling me a FAKE product using a brand like Apple. Well, I'm not that slow, my negative is there and I will go to every single review site to leave my experience.
Stay away from this seller!!! They are scammers! They sent me a damaged used camera instead of sealed new one. The return process took maximum possible time, so they were not interested to fix their failure. The communication was slow. And finally they deducted 30% of the refund!!! About $775. I guess the number of good reviews they have is just a fake or scam. Don’t make mistake like I did.

These guys have no business being in business. I purchased a camera and after purchasing, they have this weird way of authorizing it's you who made the purchase by sending in your driver's license. Once that's done, then they save it (weird as hell). And the next time. you purchase something of a larger amount, then they have it on file and they have to apply that verification to the next purchase (wow!). Once I paid and confirmed with 3 different people to make sure it would ship the same day (which they've done before) all 3 different reps said (yes it will ship today and we will send tracking asap). Of course, that didn't happen. They ONLY ship FedEx Ground and use ABSOLUTELY NO packaging to save money with package weight. Fedex of course delayed my package after having to wait the whole weekend.
Finally, I get my package, barely any tape on the box, half way opened, razor cut on the top of the box and the camera box, camera box was opened with paperwork EVERYWHERE, charging cable was outside the box and placed in the shipping box next to the camera box. On top of that, they sent the wrong camera. At this point, I'm laughing at how stupid this is and how livid I am does no justice. I asked the manager if they can send me my actual camera once they see that fedex has the item and it's being shipped back, you would think they'd do the right thing, NO! the manager says, "We have to have it in hand before we can ship yours out." Are you kidding me? NEVER AGAIN!!!! And I will copy and paste this review anywhere I can. Save yourself the headache and shop elsewhere. Saving money just isn't worth it!
Purchased a Nikon camera set for a large sum. Opened the box and the whole camera was rusted. Took photos & request a refund. 6th is saying I didn't ship back what they sent me and are refusing refund.
I ordered a $1200.00 Nikon camera from their eBay store which they had listed as 'in stock' when every other major camera retailer on the planet had it as 'not available' or 'not in stock'. I'm a pro photographer and this was something different and not a camera I usually keep in my arsenal, but I had read the reviews and thought it might be a good fit. Turns out it wasn't, but that wasn't the problem. The problem began when I used eBay's return policy and returned the camera. eBay supplied the return labels and paperwork and I packed it up and shipped it back.
Two days later I get notification from eBay that the refund has been issued but not for the full amount. eBay then said if I wanted to challenge their claim, to do so. They refunded $884.00 with the claim that the camera was returned with a scratch on the screen. It wasn't. The camera was in as pristine condition as when I received it. What these folks didn't know is whenever I need to return an item, I take photos of it from every possible angle and save them as proof of condition. I shared those with eBay. eBay said they will investigate and give me a response in 24-48 hours. 30 minutes later eBay provided the balance of the refund that was held back and closed the case in my favor.
Evidently this is a favorite trick of this outlet. Once they have the merchandise back in their hands, they can claim all kinds of damage to it, blame the consumer, who can't prove otherwise and make money on returned items. Their return history with eBay indicates it is a common practice with them. Beware of this company. You may not even realize you are dealing with them as they sell on eBay, Amazon, Walmart and several other online sales venues. Read the small print on these sites to see who the seller is. If you see '6ave' as the seller name, I'd suggest you steer clear and find the item somewhere else.
It's close to Christmas really close for me and I found the iPad bundle on Walmart.com. I ordered it thinking I could trust the Walmart brand name but I was wrong. Walmart says I can send the bundle back for a refund. It's close to Christmas and this is the gift I was looking for over a week ago... so will I find it again? Who knows! I'm keeping the tablet but scammer is how I feel about 6th Avenue Electronics. They opened the bundle and STOLE the Apple Pencil before shipping the deconstructed remainder to me. So I lost about $140 after I purchase the pencil from somewhere else. The sad part is now I distrust Walmart.com because they are allowing this company to bamboozle their loyal customers. So Disappointed.
I recently ordered over $3000 worth of product from 6th Ave, selected “do not require signature” as we are in a pandemic without the small biz bandwidth to have people on-site for deliveries, provided the door code, and still they enforced a signature and would not deliver without it...not even after a 3 way call with Fedex itself. I understand they want to protect themselves but my health and my purchase are my right and yet, they would rather compromise the sale and safety of my staff for an in-person exchange. Needless to say, I won’t be ordering from them again.
I ordered a new computer from Walmart not realizing this was a third party situation. I cannot return it at the store and 6Ave won't even call me back. I really hope someone cracks down on companies like this. Or, maybe karma will take care of them.
6ave is a con artist. They intentionally scam a small percentage of buyers to make up the margin. The majority of buyers would not have problems, but a small number of us will be victims for sure. That's their business model. That's how they undercut everyone's prices. Guess what, I bought from them many times without problem and finally my number is up. Just got scammed. They sent a defective Canon RF 24-105mm and claim the returned RF 24-105mm's serial number does not match (they accused me of switching the lens), which is a blatant lie, 1000% false. Now it makes sense.
What they're doing is criminal. When we buy from these guys, we take a chance with our money and support their unethical business practice. No more from me for sure! They're at this for a long time they know the system. They invent documentation/s for disputes. If you go to disputes with eBay, Rakuten... etc, they show their phony document/s and you are screwed. Stay away. A federal investigation is necessary. State authority must look into this business! How do we start one?
I bought this magic keyboard Swedish from 6th Ave Electronics on Google Express. Some key did not work and I contacted Apple and provided the serial number of this keyboard. Unfortunately the serial number on the product is not in Apple's system and obviously company is selling fake product. When I contacted them they said the product is beyond return time. That is ok but they wanted to provided me with another serial number which did not belong to this product and asked me to claim it with Apple. It's totally dishonest merchant and please avoid buying from them in the future.
