Processing time: expected December 8, 2019??????
Banggood as usual, he continues to use my money. Tired of their constant lies. Once again, the change in terms of processing orders from their side. Why are you pre-ordering with this lousy store?
I paid for the copper and brass lanterns Oct/25/2019 05:06:07, with the start of term and delivery November/22/2019. Banggood – Lying shop.
M4DM4X, Why do you organize group purchases and pre orders from them?? You are also involved in their fraud??

pre ordering allows the shop to see the demand and so they can offer better discounts. 

 

I try to get a info about the delay, but you can cancel any time.

I think you are too demanding. If you can buy cheaper and faster elsewhere, than quit buying at BG. The thing is you can’t. So if you consider what you trade for longer waiting period (payment -> item arrival) it still seems a fair deal. Thanks to BLF members, you can buy it at very favorable price and you are informed soon enough to have a variety of choices and stock guaranteed.

I can see you are a new member so I don’t blame you. If you’ve been on BLF long enough and participated in enough group buys or preorders, you will know this is actually a very short wait. It’s call a PREorder for a reason. I’ve bought about a hundred items from Banggood and never failed to receive a single one. Recently I had an extension tube for the MF01 arrive crushed during shipping. Banggood asked me to send photos which I did and they immediately sent me another one. I’ve used the customer services for similar defects previously too and although it is very cumbersome having to send videos of the defect, they always follow through with the replacement. Also I ordered this on Oct 25 just like you.

If you want to buy cheap and get first dip on new products, expect to wait. I rather they spend the time to iron out bugs than to rush out an unfinished or under tested product. Otherwise you can buy it from a local store when it’s released for a higher price of course.

Just got an email from Banggood saying they will give me 50 points if it’s delayed less than 7 days or 100 points if delayed more than 7 days. You just got to laugh a whole 50 cents or a dollar!! Why even bother writing that email. I’ve been screwed by Banggood multiple times them canceling my order for no reason, their crappy customer service or trying to get an honest answer out of them is always a loosing game. Saying they shipped orders that never shipped or trying to get tracking numbers. Honestly the list goes on. Unfortunately if you want to buy astrolux lights you got to play their stupid game.

I used to think the same way regarding shipping/tracking. After buying over 200 flashlights, I realized many times the tracking number can’t be tracked until it arrives at the US, or sometimes I never get tracking numbers at all but the light shows up at my doorstep. So now I just give them the benefit of the doubt. It always arrive eventually.

And my order is back in “BACKORDER” status...

Martin i would kindly ask to confirm your next deal or interest list and GB with manufacturers dates and not to phish and lure buyers.

Waiting for a product for over a month after money was taken is no go for me from now on.

No matter how big shop is this looks like a cheap chinese market deal.

its not ok to hold customers money as ransom and just keep delaying producs over and over again ,it happend before and will continue.. cant they just be honest about the shipping dates? then there will be less frustration from buyers if honest info is given out long before..

...where Frugal meets with Flashlight!

banggood told me the delay is caused due to the led/material choices 
if there is just one LED and color its easier...

they also expect all orders to be shipped this week!

As usual, expectations did not come true! The week is over, and my orders are still “in processing”! Banggood-lying man, so fond of interest-free use of other people’s money. I will wait for December 5, to once again be convinced of the false promises of Banggood.

banggood just updated me and asked me top express that they are very sorry too!

the manufacturer is delayed due to some new requests by the chinese government
but they hope to deliver within 10 days


we will think about a better way for the groupbuys from now on to avoid such long delays.

Don’t you think it’s strange that AliExpress doesn’t have a problem with the Chinese government’s new requests? AliExpress successfully sells this model of lights in several stores. Due to this pre-order, I did not buy these lights on aliexpress sale.
