Has anyone here used these guys before?

 

There are a couple of things im after that are ridiculously cheap on there.. 

 

The first thing that puts me off is that their site isn't secured by ssl and secondly that the item I was after was half the price of the next cheapest I can find online

 

Their facebook is just a bunch of reposts and google doesn't reveal any customer interactions with them either

The 'about us' page makes for some funny reading.

Dodgy.. tried calling the number on their website, no such number.

 

Domain registrant seems optimistic though, registered the domain name for 10 years..

Would avoid myself. As mentioned, no HTTPS, phone number non existant. Also looks like typical drop-shipped goods.

First impressions last, and the first thing I saw was right on the header.

"hypermarket
Inpired by you"
.
...inpired?!? Unless I'm getting really old and thats kids slang for something hip, I think that's a hard to miss error that stands out like a sore thumb.
