Aria

Easy website and excellent order-history available

I buy a few thousand ££ parts every year from the likes of Aria, Misco, Overclockers etc, but I use Aria as my main supplier because they usually only hold the latest raft of products at very competitive prices, which makes selection more cutting edge and faster on my admin.
My latest order suffered a shipping delay because a part went out of stock at the moment I hit send, but the office were very prompt in phoning me and providing an alternative, with a courtesy discount too. I would have preferred a prompt part-shipment, however.
The Order History and access to previous invoices is excellent, and almost a single good reason to use Aria (for the admin value!) Shipping is (normally) extremely fast.
I thoroughly recommend Aria.

Broadbandbuyer.co.uk

A no-snags transaction.

BroadbandBuyer listed the product I wanted at a competitive price, took the order on the web site efficiently, delivered promptly and kept me notified of progress. Ten out of ten.

GlobalWebPay

Useful low-cost cash payment service for foreign purchases, but no warranty

This is a good value method of paying cash from my current account into foreign bank accounts. I use it for occasional low-value purchases from foreign auction web sites where I am prepared to take the purchase risk, in other words, GlobalWebPay cannot help me with a refund if the goods never arrive or are faulty.
I chose to use GlobalWebPay because their transaction fees are a fraction of those of my current-account bank, although the GlobalWebPay fees are still significant for small purchases.
GlobalWebPay security appears to be good, and the recipient of my cash does not get to know any of my private details like my address or bank account number, unless I tell them.
One downside is that they keep your cash in limbo for a day, or at least for some hours, but I guess this should be seen as part of the transaction fee.
