Hard to Find Cheap Prices

Reviews from previous Doba customers on BBB.org and SiteJabber reveal that the prices of the items in the Doba catalog are higher than the going prices on Amazon and eBay:

“My experience with Doba.com is that I seriously looked into Doba.com as a source for items… Their wholesale price points were not competitive enough to make an investment in their company worthwhile.”

- Steve M (source)

“The “wholesale” cost of items through DOBA are consistently higher than what you can buy the same item for through other online sources… We closed our site after 4 months of no business.”

- K. G. (source)

Difficult to Access Refunds & Support

Customer reviews show that if you want to get a refund with Doba, you must call the company on the phone to cancel. Doba will not accept requests by email. Previous customers have indicated that this phone support was not very active and they were waiting on hold for a long time:

“I have been on hold with this company for 30 minutes because their Terms of Service state you must call this phone number to cancel. That’s fine if someone will answer. I emailed support. All they did was point me to the TOS.”

- Trudi G (source)

“Every problem I had took forever to get a response IF they even responded at all!!! I had placed several support chats or support emails that they NEVER responded to.”

- S. T. (source)

Aggressive Marketing Tactics

Previous customers have indicated that Doba has aggressive phone marketing practices, and will call you after the initial sale to try and upsell you on products that cost hundreds of dollars.

In 2014, Doba violated the Telephone Fraud Prevention Act in Utah for making or causing telephone solicitations while unregistered to do so. The company was fined $15,000 by the Utah Division of Consumer Protection.

“[Their] claims of having the best online wholesale price is false… [they] up sell you after sign up. [O]h yes they do with phone sale to the tune of almost 500.00 USD... Customer service is rude when you do inquirer [sic] about the return of YOUR money.”

- Edward V. (source)
