WAYFAIR

Wayfair has everything you need when shopping for barstools on the internet. With a huge selection of barstools to choose from, free shipping on most orders, and a customer-friendly return policy, Wayfair has gone above and beyond that of their competitors.

Wayfair offers numerous search methods to find the particular barstool that you're looking for. With these choices you can quickly narrow down your choices from among the hundreds of barstools in their inventory. Some of these search options include:

  • Height
  • Customer Rating
  • Frame Material
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Swivel
  • Seat Material
  • Finish
  • Style
  • Features
  • Application

One feature we particularly liked was the large, clear pictures of every barstool they offer. We feel that seeing what you're getting is very important when shopping online, and Wayfair gave us the confidence we needed to make our purchase. Wayfair uses a safe and secure online system to protect your privacy when ordering.

Another aspect unique to Wayfair is their shipping charges. Wayfair offers free shipping on almost every barstool they sell. This feature is unmatched by their competitors and reflects their attentiveness to the needs of their customers.

Wayfair has the largest selection of indoor and outdoor barstools, and they offer these at prices below their competition. Combined with a superior shopping experience and free shipping, Wayfair earns our highest rating.

CYMAX

Cymax has an impressive variety of barstools to choose from. While they provide a number of search options, using them can be a little confusing at first.

You can narrow down your barstool choices using selection criteria on the left side of the page. Some of the search options include:

  • Price
  • Height
  • Style
  • Seat Type
  • Swivels
  • Frame Material
  • Configuration
  • Arms
  • Finish
  • Brand

While we liked all the search options that are available, using them can be a little confusing. Once you select one of the search options, it disappears from the left side of the screen. The only way to know the options that you've selected is by looking at the top of your barstool search results. Also, since the search option is removed, you can't select multiple choices. For example, you can't opt to look at barstools that have both a Black and a Cherry finish. You must first look at Black barstools, then go back and change the search options to look at Cherry barstools. We found that a little frustrating.

We did enjoy the Cymax low price guarantee. If you find a lower price online for the same barstool from one of the seven major retailers listed, Cymax will beat their price by 10%. Cymax also offers free shipping on most barstool orders.

In addition to barstools, Cymax also sells a large number of home furniture including tables, home bars, wine racks and much more. Customers can easily furnish all of their bar-related needs at Cymax.

Customers can order by phone, mail or online. Cymax offers a "Bill Me Later" option that allows their customers to pay without using their credit card. You just answer two simple questions and accept the payment terms. There's no separate application process, and this lets you pay in full or over time.

Overall, Cymax offers their customers a wide selection of barstools and other bar related items. With affordable prices, free shipping, and several ways to search, customers may be able to forgive the clumsy website navigation. Cymax is worth consideration.

ONE WAY FURNITURE

One Way Furniture seems to be a reputable source for online ordering of barstools, but the information is difficult to locate on their website. While they feature furniture expanding beyond barstools, unrelated items crowd the website and could overwhelm users. With selection options such as barstool type and material, customers can narrow down their search fairly easily. Unfortunately the searching mechanisms are few, which leads customers to looking through a lengthy list of products rather than having the option of continuing to narrow down their search.

The customer service section is greatly detailed, but customers could have difficulty locating it on the website. And while One Way Furniture does offer a 180 day price guarantee, its not enough to keep customers coming back. All products featured at One Way Furniture come with a full warranty, but they also come with a $8.99 fee. This fee is standard on all orders and covers extra shipping and handling costs. While One Way Furniture claims to have free shipping, they do not fully support that with this additional fee.

One Way Furniture offers many bar related items such as tables, wine racks and other bar accessories. They also feature several other types of furniture, which crowd their website and could possibly interrupt customers looking only for barstools.

Overall One Way Furniture is an mediocre website that offers a wide range of products,but their website is not organized and is somewhat confusing.

BARSTOOL DIRECT

Barstool Direct is an online retailer of a wide variety of barstools, from manufacturers such as American Heritage and Stone County Ironworks. Their website is very easy to navigate; the sidebar allows customers to shop by stool height and type, price range, and brand, and a bar stool height guide makes it simple to determine the right stool for any given countertop or bar height.

At first glance, Barstool Direct looks like a very customer-friendly business. Free shipping within the 48 continental United States and a 10% discount are featured prominently on the home page, and their return policy initially says that customers can receive an exchange, refund, or replacement within 30 days of delivery. However, reading the fine print, there does not appear to be any refund or replacement if a customer is unsatisfied with the quality of an item or if it doesn't match the item as described on the website. We found many customer complaints regarding stools that were of poor quality or did not match the description and that Barstool Direct refused to refund.

Barstool Direct operates under a parent company known as Peazz or TSCShops, which becomes obvious as users see references to aquariums and pet urns within the Barstool Direct return policies. While there is little information available about Barstool Direct's customer service history, we found an overwhelming number of issues with both Peazz and TSCShops, from backordered items that took two months to arrive to orders that never arrived but the customer was charged for anyway.

While we appreciate that Peazz carries an A rating as a BBB-accredited company, we are not impressed with the 108 complaints registered with the BBB in the last three years alone.

Barstool Direct has a wide selection of products at competitive prices, but we'd need to see a noticeable increase in customer satisfaction to award them a higher rating.

Perhaps you've even spent the last several weekends driving across the city and shopping at the furniture warehouses, looking for a good mix of quality and selection? If so, there is an alternative that many people have found success with.

Shopping for barstools online can provide you thousands of choices in various price ranges, styles, heights, quality, and cost. The benefits of shopping online are numerous. Not only can you save the cost of gas and your precious time, but you can perform a side-by side comparison of your top choices and make a decision that is stress- and salesman- free.

Additionally, many stores offer free shipping which is helping to change our perceptions of buying furniture online. The best stores also offer excellent service and exceed consumer expectations with quick problem resolution and overall service.

Before you move forward with making your barstool purchase, you'll want to consider certain factors when making your selection. Those should include:

  • Products. Does the company offer a wide selection of barstools from quality manufacturers?
  • Shipping. What are the costs of shipping your barstool? Is it going to blow your budget?
  • Website Navigation. Is the barstool website clear and easy to navigate?
  • Return Policy. If your barstool arrives different than you anticipated or damaged, is getting your money back a hassle?
