For god’s sake, read terms and conditions first

Or atleast inform yourself on what are you buying before doing so.

Apologies for formating, mobile, etc.

I work for a company named by a largest rainforest in the world.

I work for German department, and our membership (Prime) subscription offers free shipping within Germany and Austria, as clearly stated when subscribing.

I just had customer yell at me, as if it’s my or company’s mistake they did not read terms and conditions.

Here is how the call went :

Me : Hi, welcome to rainforest company, how can I help you?

Cm : I bought two items, and I am Prime customer, why was shipping fee applied?

Me : I see that you have ordered items to location in Finland. On our site, Prime shipping benefits are available only to customers within Germany and Austria.

Cm : THEN HOW THE **** DID I GET FREE SHIPPING BEFORE

* I check their previous orders for few moments*

Me : Yes, you had free shipping for some orders before. However, not due to Prime subscription. For orders of 39.00 euros and above, shipping is free to Finland.

*Customers take a second to process this*

Cm : WELL THAT IS NOT STATED ANYWHERE, YOU WERE SCAMMING ME!

Me : It’s clearly stated on terms and conditions page when you first subscribe. Also, if you click *there, there and there* you will clearly see that it is stated.

Cm : Well I want my money back

Me : As you haven’t used any shipping benefits, I will be able to issue a refund here, please hold on.

After this, I see that he has been subscribed for whole 8 months. We can issue refund for last 6 months.

Me : I can issue a refund, however we can issue a refund for last 6 months only, and you’ve been subscribed for 8.

Cm : WHAT.THE.F***!? I AM PAYING UOU FOR 8 MONTHS AND NOONE HAS INFORMED ME ABOUT THIS??? GET ME YOUR MANAGER ON PHONE INSTANTLY!

Me : I can get you a manager, but they will tell you exact same thing I told you.

Cm : SHUT THE F*** UP AND GET ME SOMEONE COMPETENT, YOU UNTRAINTED PIECE OF S***.

Me : I am now terminating this call since you have insulted me directly. Goodbye.

Cm : F***ING PIECE OF…..

I have immediately flagged him for abuse, warned my colleagues and left a notes in his order.

Good thing is when customer insults us directly, we are allowed to terminate a call.

I still have refunded last 6 months to him, I had to do that.

I just baffled at how ignorant you can be to not read what you are buying and then accussing customer service of scamming you.

I cannot wait until I leave this job.

What do you think?
