So i have decided to cancel the order on 1st april, reason is pretty clear…wait for 4 weeks is very time consumimg and you don’t know a lot is going on. The order supposed to be ship on 20 april. Ok, BG response team are delay by just 1 day. I see it within 72hours. Its was not as immidiate, they will asking again as for comfirmation. Then they will send “list” of online payment methods with specifying process period/time for each individual methods. E.g Me, via Credit card will take 7-14 days to show up in my acc. Others, I just note paypal withing 1 bussiness day(say on the list). Last, notfying email come after as notify cancel order details and came with “list”. I check order status also been cancel.

So i need to wait. I think patient cost more than flashlight. Anyway til here so far so good.

Today[13th april] I check up my account to see whether BG has successfully did my refund. I was surprised, the refund was show up..but early then from what i’ve expected. I thought was 7-14 days process, it was in 3 days[cancel in 1st april and refund show on the 3rd april].
So BG manage refund pretty quickly on my pre-order cancelation. Cancel it bcos I couldn’t hold my addict[flasholic] which supposed to be shipped on 20 april.
If ask whether I’m going to use BG again, I would try another one and this time using paypal. I also had learned that before purchased with BG you need to see the date, the stock and etc, so keep it out of trouble. So far so good for me this time,..

In search of the most ideal flashlight in town:
1. BRIGHTNESS
2. Durabillity
3. Design
4. Quality
5. Price$$$

Losers said they shipped Astrolux FT03 on April 6th 2019 and gave tracking that only says shipping label created, now today they send this;

Dear Banggood customer,

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for shopping with us. (Sucker)
We are sorry to inform you that your order 619XXX would be delayed 7 business days due to the strict customs inspection in the peak season. The tracking information will be updated in a few days after the order is dispatched. (Sounds believable right?)

Best regards, (SUCKER!)

After waiting 60 days (as requested), and some more days (as requested) I have still not received one of my orders. I didn’t opt for shipping insurance so Banggood are telling me I’m SOL. Do I have any recourse via PayPal or is this a lost cause?

do paypal dispute, i did that and now i must wait to april 29th and then paypal will decide.. i mean if an order or tracking havent arrived in 50 days almost then its obvious i should get my money back.

so do a dispute and things will hopefully end with your money back.

BG shipping insurance has nothing to do to with it. You paid for goods, they did not arrive.

Forget dealing with BG customer service, too much hard work, they try many tricks to delay you, ask you to jump through hoops all the way. As a last resort, tell BG customer service they have 3 days to refund you otherwise you will make a PP claim. Or just make a claim via PP.

Yeah, I’ve had a few bad experiences with them this year already, really putting me off. Last year I had a faulty A6, got a replacement driver after sending a video. Relatively simple and painless process. This year, same cs rep, completely different story.

I’ve raised a claim and will escalate to a dispute in a few days. As you say, it is pointless speaking with their cs if they are not immediately receptive as they will just keep giving you the run around.

File paypal dispute immediately. The shipper takes your money, they are required to deliver. If there was no insurance, that is Banggood’s fault, not yours. You wouldn’t be able to insure or collect on the insurance even if you wanted to. Only the shipper can do that. If Banggood didn’t want to lose packages, they would require insurance for everything, and charge accordingly not giving customers the choice. Fact is, these chinese companies just swallow the insurance money anyway. They never insure anything even when they charge for it.

Ordered 4 batteries from BangGood on the 29th April from China to the UK. Was told they were shipped on the 1st April (now i read that, i’ve just noticed the date on there…) and have an EXPECTED delivery date of the 1st May 2019.

Now i KNOW that things from China can be held up and delayed and i wasn’t too worried as i had bought a flashlight from Aliexpress at the same time which apparently left there on the 31st March and arrived on the 25th April! But these are batteries, the box is tiny, surely it can’t take up that much space on a plane that it is put back and back and back?

Never had any issues with previous items from there though. All the others turned up in 5 – 15 days!

Finally, after 2 months waiting for an order that never arrived or probably never will i got my money back.. so much for help from BG.. all i got was keep waiting 5 more days bla bla…. so always use paypal when buy from them and they cant do anything…

yeah i mailed them several times, asking where is my package ,tracking never updated only one time march 7 item is pre-advised that made no sense.. only got back same response, “wait 5 days shipper will soon update” i mean what lame response was that lol ? good thing there is paypal otherwise many customers would lose money on such..

so if anyone is waiting one month or more and still not arrived, just do a paypal dispute and u should get money back hopefully like i did.

Glad you got your money back. Thumbs Up … Stuff just happens sometimes.. for no reason.

Don’t let one bad experience outweigh all the 15+ good ones.

It sucks that the law of averages caught up to you. Your package is lost to who knows where. Might even show up. That is probably what they were hoping for. Next year I am staying away from CNY even if the deals are good. Too much drama.

For several years, I considered BG to be a trusted seller.
Something’s wrong this year.

XTAR VC2 paid 27/02/2019 – not yet delivered, NCR18650 paid 7/7/2019 – not yet delivered,
DQG Slim paid 14.4.2019 – money back offered, allegedly not in stock but on stock,
Sofirn SP36 paid 25.4. – offered a refund.

I don’t understand the point of sale that doesn’t sell.

I wanted to add one more data point to the discussion:
- ordered a flashlight on banggood
- tracking showed up 3 days afterwards (on all relevant tracking sites)
- arrives at customs/import border check about 12 days afterwards
- at my door 5 days afterwards
In total 21 days with tracking.
