The cubans are still ‘stumbling’ with the disaster of the virtual stores, now with the ‘combos’

The virtual stores that are kept running in Cuba while others do “adjustments” in order not to repeat the recent disaster of these businesses on the internet are still receiving a barrage of complaints by the users that have used their services.

According to Rosario Ferrer, vice president, commercial of the corporation CIMEX property of the military, they have “refined the whole of the returns identified until last Thursday”, but still 4.156 people are still waiting for solution by the bank.

The official did not rule out “that may arise” other “on the basis of the claims received from the customers.”

According to what justifies the official journal Granmathe transit of the trade a physical to a virtual “has not been the most happy in the majority of cases”. That’s why the chain Stores Caribbean and Cimex recently announced the temporary closure and gradual online businesses, in function “adjust their processes and redeploying them” to the sale of modules, with values of 10, 15, 20 and 30 CUC.

The marketing of so-called combos have been added to the store The Typical and 5th. and 42, in Havana, and also in the provinces of Matanzas and Camaguey.

However, the modules of food, toiletries and cleaning have also been made “happy” shoppers need and there have been many complaints for the products that are included in these.

According to Ferrer, Datacimex works to enable the platform TuEnvío the option that, once the customer adds the selected product to your shopping cart, this remains reserved for a minimum period of time that allows you to finish the purchase without which the desired article is out and out as not available, as has happened to dozens of clients.

Amilkar Odelín, commercial director of the Chain Stores Caribbean (TRD, also the conglomerate’s military GAESA), said on Friday the virtual store Villa Diana concluded with the delivery of the 19,000 pending orders, and as of Saturday began to market its offerings of combos, that will be 200 per day for the time being, and for the month of July increased to 400 in total.

“We know that such a supply is low, taking into account the high demand, but it is the figure that we can handle for the moment and thus ensure the 100% of the products that make up the modules that are expenderán”, he argued.

In terms of the returns said that they have streamlined the processes with the bank. “We have been able to repay the money by the concept of missing products to a significant number of customers, although there are still outstanding 5.400 returns”, he said.

Complaints associated with this shop had as a cause the assurances and the lack of foresight to ensure that the items to be sold, which also led to delays in deliveries, he said.

In the case of 5th. and 42 was determined to change the mode of sale and move on to the combos, at the rate of 200 per day, although as of Saturday had to include 100 more until you get to 500 combos in the day, in a future not specified.

The process of delivery of the pending orders, to reach 4,900, must be concluded on the 26th of June, just like the returns, according to the manager.

“We do not reject that in the future the virtual stores meet really their goal, which is to complement the service of the physical trade, but with the complexities of the current scenario we consider that the variants used are the most feasible. What cannot happen is that the demand we exceed, as happened previously, and that we can not provide an effective response and quick to that problem,” he said.

One of the latest complaints from users that want to access the virtual store 5th. and 42, with the new form of combos, lies in how difficult it is to successfully execute the purchase, because both the website and the application EnZona not respond and the payments are failed.
