My experience with TATA CLiQ


First time experience with Tata CLiQ app

As you know one of the biggest business houses in India, TATA entered the e-commerce space with an intelligent platform called CLiQ. The platform is user friendly. To make users download and use the app/website TATA had a promotional offer of RS 500 off on any items bought upto 28th May 2016. A large conglomerate like TATA Group has enough funds to come up with a “better than the best“ platform and they are only looking for profitability through this e-commerce arm.

TATA Group has a strong brand name and unlike other e-commerce platforms they do not need to depend on discounts to generate revenue. TATA also has apparel and electronic stores around India so they do not need a warehouse for the product storage. Their service of delivery or pickup from store is similar to WallMart in USA. CliQ will help them tap into the middle class retail segment. I believe in TATAs since JRD TATA started expanding business in India. Listening to this news and a 500 rupees discount coupon I quickly downloaded the app and decided to buy a product. Couple of observations

  • The 500 rupees off discount coupon (Promo code CLIQ500) did not work for me on May 28th. When I entered the coupon I got a message saying “Expired Code”.

My order summary

  • The mobile app has couple of glitches like you see below. You cannot view your orders, available coupons and transaction history. There are some bugs that need to be fixed


  • The look and feel of the app is good. I could easily browse through various products, and categories made it much simpler to discover them.
  • The mobile app and web definitely read my mind when it comes to arranging products.
  • The brand TATA speaks for itself. All the products seem to look genuine and even though the promo code did not work for me, I am sure the ordered product (ordered a juicer) will be of good quality.

One feedback I want to give, if more than “couple of millions” are spent on an intelligent platform, make sure that the production level mobile app has no bugs. Bugs and invalid promo codes pave way for competitors like Amazon, Flipkart, and Snapdeal to get a stronger grip on existing market share. On the whole the TATA CliQ is a good store like Westside and Croma and I hope it delivers the experience that was promised.

    Worst service. Despatched low priced different model than the ordered item. Poor customer service. No reply to mails or unjustified call responses. Saying new venture so takes time. No co-ordination between mail dept and customer service. Std reply from customer service that they dont have access to mails. While mail dept sends automated response mails that they will get back within 4 hours but no one has contacted after 4 days also.

    Awesome disgraceful Customer Service to Awesome Customer (as addressed by them in mails).

    Such services will bring disrepute to well established TATA group

    Pathetic services a lot of glitch and a big shame for Tata , their customer care services are horrific , unprofessional staff , they commit to revert back by 4 hours and reply after two days and if commit to revert at 24hr reply after 5-6 days and still no solutions and blames customer instead.
    I have purchased canon camera(no problem with product ) and I am in complete loss with their payment flaws and after service ,no solutions more than a month.

    Never ever saw worst level of customer care services in my lifetime.

    I was foolish enough to order from Tata Cliq without looking at feedback because I stupidly trusted the Tata name. Ordered 2 pairs of Bata shoes which did not fit so asked for a return pick up. The pick up guy turned up on 25 Sep without contacting me and I was not at home. I phoned him and asked him to come a day later- he never came. Phoned up customer care and gave them the dates when I would be available and they promised to arrange for the pick up. This was on the 28th Sep. Nothing happened. Yesterday 12 Oct they first fapped about Festival etc, then the rep. Santosh by name puts me on hold then comes back and then tells me the team told him that they do not service my pincode and I will have to send the item back. I lost it and gave him a dose and then told him to connect me to a supervisor. He put me on hold and never came back. Made several calls to them, no reponse, I was on hold and had to listen to a stupid, irritating tune extolling their non existent virtues. The worst part is that I was stupid enough to have paid by card beforehand. Is the company not interested in reading feedback and salvaging their reputation ?

    Worst online e-commerce site & worst customer Care.

    Worst customer service. Tata Brand, but poor customer service is not unusual from the group.
    Delivered defective product on 28.10.2016. Return ticket no: 4000262000 created on 29.10.2016. Till today, after many call to call center, many mails which had standard or automated responses and after promises of “action within 24 hours and personally looking into it” from supervisors at customer-care, the defective tablet PC is still lying with me and my Rs 4999 is still with Tata Cliq. No complaint escalation mechanism available at their website.

    Pathetic and nearly-criminal behaviour.

    Worst e commerce site ever.purchased a fitness band which arrived late but on complaints they took it back the very next day and now it’s been four months but the money not refunded yet. Pathetic customer service and frauds they are.called them hundred times and they are least interested in refunding your money. They eat it all up!

    Recently I bought vivo v5 mobile from Tata cliq. When i received it the camera was not good. So as per their policy of 15 days return (if not satisfied), I requested for return policy. None of them turned up. I again mailed their customer service. They simply said for this reason it cannot be returned back. These reasons was not mentioned in their website. They simple flash like 15 days return policy but it is absolute fraud. They never care about after service. Their toll free number wont work & if somebody attend, they simple divert to other person. Worst ever service from a brand like TATA.
    Also the products mentioned in their website are fake & not original.
    Beware of Tata Cliq & don’t get trapped in this website by their fake promise.
    There is no review of products or feedback of customer in their website. In other e-store like flipkart or amazon we can read customer feedback. But Tata Cliq literally hide those because all customers are unsatisfactory about the fake produts.

    Order No 101075657. Most pathetic Company. Never recommend this to anyone. Placed the order on 22nd Sep as Express Shipping – Delivery in 2 days. Its been 10 days already. First the customer service guys say its a technical glitch so the order has not moved forward. They re-submit on 29th and commit for 48 hrs. Nothing happens. Multiple follow ups yeilded no result. Even escalation did not help. Got 1000 different type of excuses from them. Still not resolved. Just a suggestion – never purchase from Tata Cliq.. They are cheats.

    Please don’t ever buy any thing from Tata Cliq app or web site or any other way. They are selling fraud only, once you bought any product from then 99% you will get damaged/ low quality/ used product and then don’t expect any return or refund of money from them. Check all web site/ app of Tata Cliq you don’t find any product review/ user review option, because they know well the people will bang them in reviews. As well there is no refund or return options actually options are there but they only guide to nothing. So friends don’t buy any product from them. I bought washing machine from them and I got damaged, dented machine really crab, so beware don’t waste your time any money on them.
