yea I'm wishing i would've waited for them to get back into stock somewhere else instead of buying from alibaba (ebay, or maybe from dunu directly if they do that) (obviously not the 0 sales $80 ones lol)
>Delivery Time:15-45 Days
>Processing Time:15 Days
^that second one sounds very suss.
yea definitely should have waited for them or Shenzhenaudio. (especially given paypal support being absent via aliexpress)
Already have trouble with aliexpress.
Paid the order by card (incl the card provider second factor token verification for the payment)
After < 24h:
'link to the order # where the claim button is'
Unfortunately, your payment could not be verified and Order No. # has been closed for security reasons.Please be assured that the payment for this order was not deducted by AliExpress.
To avoid order cancellation, please follow the below steps to submit a claim:
1.Sign in to AliExpress
2.Go to My Orders and locate this order
3.Click “View Details”
4.Click “Want to Claim”
5.Submit the following documents:
•A copy of your personal ID/passport or driver’s license
•A copy of your card and bank statement if you paid with a credit/debit card or a copy of your bank statement if you paid with your checking account
a) (in the online bank) 12 Apr 2014 PENDING - WWW.ALIEXPRESS.COM LONDON GBR-$... <- kinda looks like it was deducted to me given when it does that, it doesn't show up in available funds. I hope I don't get any trouble having that reversed, or for it to reverse itself by say, Wed.
b) second - their security team is sure doing well given
I'm i) asked to click a link in an email and upload personal docs (strictly speak i can follow the sensible instructions below the links but people are lazy) ii) it all happens over http and not https. iii) I do understand they're like ebay, but I don't really want to upload my card or passport pic for buying earphones? (not that ebay and paypal don't do the same, but I trust those a whole lot more than aliexpress).
c) mmm sure, picture of my card and drivers license. coming right up. (only their login and checkout/pmt pages are https btw. Even their password reset pages or 'myebay' type profile/history pages aren't https , but hey, who's counting.)
needless to say, I won't be returning to make a purchase via aliexpress or alibaba anytime soon
should've waited and bought from elsewhere.
