This company will pop up on a Goggle Shopping search, giving them the air of a reputable business – don’t buy it! They will advertise a product at a much lower price (ex. Nikon EN-EL14A battery for $18.88) than other legitimate businesses. Once ordered, the customer will receive a call from them stating that their item is backordered (never mind that the website continues and will continue to show it in stock) but, that for an additional fee, they can send you a better item than you ordered (ex. a higher capacity battery). The customer will then be sent a cheap knock off, rather than the name brand item originally ordered. In my case, I requested a new receipt with details of the new item and pricing before I would agree and was told that it would be sent in 10 minutes. Didn’t happen, but the bogus item was still sent and my card charged for the higher amount. On the site, as well as at, there are many complaints regarding this same scam, showing that it is not a one-off incident but rather their normal "business" practice that has been going on for quite a while. As for the complaints filed on the BBB, this shady outfit will respond by saying that the victim was taken in by "another" Photoland, not them. There is only one online ThePhotoland and they are it. Apparently the NY is either unable or unwilling to put a stop to it.

Yes it is. Based on the user review published on, it is strongly advised to avoid Review in any dealing and transaction.
Not really. In spite of the review published here, there has been no response from Review. Lack of accountability is a major factor in determining trust.
Because unlike, other websites get paid to remove negative reviews and replace them with fake positive ones. Review is rated 1 out of 5 based on the reviews submitted by our users and is marked as POOR.
Never trust websites which offer a shady ‘advocacy package’ to businesses. Search for relevant reviews on Ripoff Report and Pissed Consumer to see more unbiased reviews.
