You will get a PM (personal message) and an email to tell you about the PM arriving.

Have you bought from Amazon before? If so, you’re already set. If you haven’t might need to create an account there. Does anyone know for sure if you can order through PayPal without an account?

I have a PayPal and an Amazon account. I’ve ordered plenty of things on Amazon. Dunno if you can use PayPal on Amazon though.
Thanks Jason

Your right. I had to look at my Amazon account settings. They use debit/credit cards, not Paypal. I guess your set for either way. Thumbs Up

Aliexpress also uses debit/credit card.

You don’t want to use Aliexpress because shipping could take 2 weeks. Just go ahead and use Amazon which should be much, much faster.

If you have some extra money in your Paypal account, you can simply transfer it to the card it is linked to.

I never keep money in my PayPal account. Whenever I buy something with PayPal it automatically transfers it from my card. So the only time I have money in my PayPal account is when I get a refund.

Let me edit: From post #1.
Quote:
For the aliexpress store, order the light but do not pay yet! Instead, while still in the unpaid order, leave a message with your BLF-name, Barry will check if you are on the interest list and will lower the price for you. Then (I hope it will be quick) “refresh the order” and finish paying.

I assume Aliexpress buyers should still wait for the group buy to start so as to minimize their wait time from Barry.

Just found the Q8 at the Sofriin store on AX.  Ok, will wait then until the group buy starts.

Hello I’m already in the list but I didn’t say I want to buy this flashlight in Aliexpress.

And I have a question. This flashlight needs top button batteries like the original Q8 or It’s possible that It works with flat batteries?

Ordered from AliExpress.

What I did:
1) “Place Order” but DO NOT pay yet (select “other payment method”)
2) send a message to the store about this group buy discounted price
3) mention your username here in BLF (your username should be listed in the interest list)
4) wait for the store to adjust the price
5) confirm payment

If the group by has not started yet, you may be waiting a very long time.

If I understand the post well it seems that he completed the transaction, so he waited, got the discount and payed. The sofirn Q8 is listed on AI, so why not, if Barry or whoever is ‘attending the store’ it may just have worked Smile

You will need to ask if d_t_a has completed the sale. IDK.

I was just thinking that the AliExpress store has plenty of lights so there’s no need to try and order early.
