What I like or don’t like
There one feature of Power Hobby that I really like is that their storefront is extremely organized. With an average store on Amazon, you can’t really look at their inventory, you kind of just have to go through their inventory, item by item. In this store, they have more of a traditional web store set up, with a left side navigation menu, organized by brands. And if you click on the “+ See More” link, you’ll go to a page of a full brand links page.
Another thing that I really appreciate about this store is the quality of their listings. Each listing is described in detail, so you have all the necessary information. It’s really frustrating when a listing isn’t accurately written, and you have to sit and wait on a reply from a seller.
Their attention to detail in their listings, and their stellar 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. That’s it!
