FastTech, I ordered an Olight pistol light March, 4th. It listed in stock and still does today. Twice I’ve written to see when it’ll ship twice the reply was it’ll be back in stock soon. However it’s description still list in stock. Is this common practice?

Do a support ticket with them asking your question in simple terms. They have never failed to get back to me within 36 hours. They do advertise 24 hours.

@ Noel,

We understand the shipping delay; that’s acceptable. The issue is FastTech’s listings show items as “In Stock” when they are not! In stock means they can be picked and shipped immediately. We just want a little more honesty in our ETAs.

@ FastTech:

Here is a perfect example of issues caused by FastTech’s errant stock reporting:

On March 01, I ordered four pieces of SKU.4348605:
https://www.fasttech.com/p/4348605
As of today, this item shows as “In Stock” but my order has not yet shipped. But I’ve received the following support ticket update regarding this item:

“_We are sorry to write here that during packaging, we discovered that the item SKU 4348605 (UltraFire 18W 1*COB 1890LM 3000K LED Emitter)—(2 pcs) we were about to ship out is actually not ready for ship because we had mistaken the stock in the system.

Please note that the status of your order is displayed as packaging in the system, but actually it is not ready due to the above mentioned item. Your order will be shipped once this item is restocked. And a shipment notification will be sent to you at the same time._”

I would be much happier with FastTech as a vendor if you were more honest with your stock/inventory reporting!

Hi keltex78,

Sorry to hear that. The reason why the inaccuracy information shown in our site is mainly caused by the delay of our supplier. I have urged the merchandiser to push our supplier and let them provide the goods as soon as possible. In addition, I understand that the updating time of our stock status is really slow which may mislead customers. I have reported to our IT department and warehouse plenty of the time before but the improvement is still not obvious. I am sorry about that and will pay more attention on it and make sure we declare the correct status as soon as possible once we received information from supplier.

If you have any questions on your order, please feel free to contact me in private message and I will take full care on it.

Thank you for your understanding.

Noel

This sounds disorganized.

You’re updating the stock too fast — showing a product for sale that you expect to have, before the supplier actually delivers it.
and
You’re updating the stock too slow — showing a product for sale after you sold out and don’t have any more.

Maybe a “please check the stock and tell me if it’s available” button on each page would be helpful?

Is there someone the support people could telephone at the drop shipper or warehouse, and ask if they actually have the thing?

Sorry Noel but seriously, that’s the best you could come up with? Facepalm
An “Authentic” crappy SK68 clone with an obviously FAKE LED, plus throwaway battery and charger.
This is BLF remember, most members here know a thing or two about lights and you insult our intelligence by promoting such rubbish here.

Hi everyone,

On last Sunday Sale, we have offered six ultrafire flashlights and in the coming Sunday Sale, another 6 will be available with great discount. We will like to know more your opinions on this flashlight Smile

Or any other brands of flashlight you want us to promote?

Just tell me your ideas here and we will make it true Smile

How about promoting truthfullness. I just recieved the replacement light for the one that Fasttech sold me, with fake Crees.

Suprise suprise, the replacement, that I was ASSURED would have authentic Cree emiters, has more fake Crees.

I might have been born at night Fasttech, but not last night.

Fasttech has squandered every last bit of any benefit of doubt that I had ascribed to them. The plausible deniability of Fasttech being “mislead” by its suppliers is all long gone. Used up.

I am not in the consumer electronic business. The very first I had heard of fake LEDs, was when I recieved one.

In a few seconds, it was clear to me that Fastteh had sent me another POS light with fake LEDs. I uploaded a pic here, just to make sure I was not wrong. Fasttech sent me fakes. Again.

If I can identify a fake, WTF can’t you Fasttech? Its your job to ensure that your suppliers are not ripping off your customers.

Can’t you be bothered to check that what you are selling is what is described? Or do you think we are too stupid to know the difference?

Perhaps your business model is based on letting your customers vet your suppliers for you.

Who knows. Perhaps whatever the situation actually is is irrelevant. The bottom line, is that Fasttech is either incapable of exercising a minimum level of due dilligence in ensuring that they are not cheating their customers. Incapable, or unwilling. Either way, the outcome is the same.

Shame on you Fasttech.

How about promoting some honesty?

Piss poor stock management policy or something. My 02/23 order got home on 04/12 give or take. It included batteries, of course. Facepalm

My latest one, placed on 04/01, was shipped on 04/15. Again, batteries all between. At least I could change one of the order items a couple of times, lets hope I don’t receive one of those Lattice Crap emitters on that new SKU UltraFire SK98. Facepalm

Af if this were not enough, I’ve recently posted a pile of questions about certain items on the product pages and… 0% answers. Customer service rating: UltraSux. Facepalm

C’mon FastTech, need support? I’m unemployed right now, what’s the wage? LOL! Big Smile

Cheers Party

P.S.: I’ve been seeing the “Ships in three business days” message on those XHP70 nano-plates, ordering one this Sunday among other stuff “in stock”. Gonna screw up this time again?

Just ordered some bits and bobs. Always nice to have 15% off! Now wait and see when the postman rings.

I always think long and hard before I say something really stupid.

Hi OneBadWolf,

Sorry to hear about the experience. FastTech pay seriously attention on the fake products we have received from supplier recently. I have requested all of our QC staffs to be more careful on checking the products and blacklists the suppliers that provide the fake Cree.

We understand the importance of the product quality and we will try all our best to maintain this. We apologize for the fake Cree you have received and feel free to contact me in PM if you need help.

Thank you for your attention.

Regards,

Noel

Hi ri chevy,

I am sorry to hear your experience. Please make sure that the coupon code has been placed in a correct place. The code should be placed in “Have a coupon code” in “Summary of cart”. You can refer to the picture below.

Find me when you need help.
