This "company" will take your money, claiming to have the lowest wholesale dropship prices. They call your membership fee a "deposit" so it is not refundable. They don't let you see the prices until you pay because they are at retail on them. They will tell you that you have to purchase in quantity to get better pricing on their products, which research shows they don't even ship if you order them. I requested a refund the same day my account was created. Jeremy told me to file a charge back on my credit card. He told me his "back office knows how to get around that" and that I will never get my money back. They immediately closed my account. I filed the charge back and they created a fictitious log of me "accessing my account 8 times during a 5 week period." This is a complete scam!
I signed up quite a while ago and have made every effort to work with these folks. My first order the site said they had over 500 units. I ordered one and they tied it up for two days saying "Nobody makes such a large order their first time." It was for one laptop. After all the hoopla of sending them multiple forms for a card they had already charged (for my membership), they told me it was out of stock. I let it ride and tried again, this time told that all 900 units declared in the data feed were on hold. Someone JUST bought them that morning after I had been watching them in the data feed for a week. A week later, all 900+ units were still in the data feed. I watched the feed for a month tracking 18 products and wrote to tell them none of them had sold a single unit, so I wondered if the updates were correct. I was told they sell what the they sell, so they just must not have sold any of those particular items. There are over 10,000 products in their data feed, and only a few thousand of them are allegedly in stock, and it appears you can't buy any of them. After being told on the phone I could get discounts on volume purchases, I asked about buying 100 units of something and got a reply email those units sold too well to give a discount. So I asked about a second product and was told they don't give discounts at all. EVERYTHING with these guys is a constant runaround, and this guy who answers the phone is just as rude as he can be. It's like he purposely tries to make you feel like dealing with you is an inconvenience. He'll talk over you. He'll insist nobody told you what he just told you on the last call. I built a web site based around the data feed for their products, and now don't feel I can take a chance they're going to mess up the orders. I have to take it down and start from scratch within the first month of launching it on the three strikes and you're out rule. Whatever they may have been a when people were leaving good reviews (and I checked everywhere before I signed up and found very little), things have definitely changed. You can see it yourself in the new reviews here. I think they're just around to take the $59 membership fee (which went up to $59 from $50 this year) and don't actually sell anything. I mean who turns down a $10,000 order and won't even discuss it? Save your time. This is a complete scam that's cost us over 200 hours in development and countless hours working with their antiquated data feed that is completely dishonest about the inventory.
This scam company has no merchandise. His actions has cost us over $25,000 so far. Anything that you see online about albany distributing being a good company is a review by this one man show and should be disregarded.
Greg - the sales rep in this company is the only one who will talk to you for everything. I dont think there is anyone else working in this company.
He gave me 50% discounts on all the products and in response he wanted me to sign an agreement for $999. Once I gave my first order he just closed down my account giving me reason that "its in company's discretion to break the agreement" and that amount is non-refundable. He is just a scam!! Fraud
The person Greg who takes the call everytime you hit customer service agent is a big time liar.
Not only he will keep making false commitments but he will call you back via "unknown number" to fool and take you in confidence until you fall in his trap.
He is just a " Bastard".
