When you sell name brand electronics, etc., especially at a discount, a popular question is always going to be if the items are authentic, fake, or knock-offs. To answer that question…
Let’s take a close look at their recent feedback history. Amazon buyers have a really good way of weeding out the good sellers from the bad. If an item even SLIGHTLY looks like it might be a counterfeit or knock-off, they will leave you bad feedback. And any and all flaws will usually be reflected in a seller’s feedback. With that being said, over the past 12 months, Calumet has received about 1,900 positive feedback ratings, compared to just 1% negative feedback comments. With that sort of lop-sided ratio, it definitely appears as though Calumet is an honestly run business, selling authentic merchandise.
All items are guaranteed to be 100% authentic, and come with all the manufacturer paper work, in their original authentic boxes as provided by the manufacturers.
What I like or don’t like
Their storefront is very organized. You have a product menu on the left side with all of the brand categories available, as well as top menu with store categories. So you just find your desired category, and go from there. Once you get into a listing page, you get a left hand menu with all of the brands available. So this store is very easy to navigate.
Another thing I appreciate is their attention to detail in their listings. Each listing has multiple clear and large pictures, so you can clearly see what is included in the listing. Their descriptions go into a lot of detail, and provide all the specifications that you might be looking for like the model they work for, size, color, etc. The quality of their listings is about as good as it gets on Amazon. You get all sorts of pictures, sizes, weights, package contents, etc.
Their attention to detail, and their excellent feedback really makes you feel secure in shopping from this Amazon store. As does their 30-day hassle free returns policy. No need to email back for a return authorization, or deal with with annoying emails back and forth. You just click on return, and send it back. And having a month to do so is quite convenient.
