This is my very first time calling New Balance customer service @ (888) 832-7084 in Toronto around 5:20pm on June 21, 2022; and it may probably my very last time too. I called as I placed an online order several days ago. I got an email today saying that they couldn’t process my payment through PayPal. The staff just provided me standard answer: try different payment method. But I could only find 1 payment method available, i.e. PayPal. There were 2 payment buttons available on screen, a red checkout button, a blue PayPal checkout button. Both redirected me to PayPal payment, and after several tries, the PayPal payment screen gave me ‘Invalid Token’ error message. I tried on different browsers on my computer, all gave me the same scenario. And the staff couldn’t provide any more advice. I told her I’m stuck here. She just keep telling me the same solution: try different payment method.
This customer service staff was not helpful and didn’t know about the way to solve my problem. Her attitude was not professional either.
In the end, after I finished my conversation with her, I then discovered that there was a feature to add a new payment method, such as credit card. Then I managed to get my online order through. Unfortunately, that staff didn’t mention anything about this feature.
I’ve been wearing NB shoes for years now. Store staff are usually very professional. Just very disappointed to realize that the customer service staff was so unprofessional. 🙁
I went to the shop on Robson st, Vancouver, and the staff was amazing, extremely helpful and polite. Highly recommended
