I’m honestly shocked that anyone is going to buy from them next time around with this level of service.

Sure it is sold as cheap but if you never receive the item it is actually very expensive.

1 order is arrived in my country, customs are playing with it.
The two others are arrived on hk post today.
So the other orders should be trackable today too.

I wait sometimes 1 week for a DX order until they ship it, so there’s nothing special about this. You have to think about Christmas, holidays and new year.

Nothing to cry about. Everything is fine.

but we are a bunch who have received our previous orders. and they have had several days off in china around the new year. And CS said they have a logistics company taking the outgoing goods to hong kong so they can use hong kong post instead of china post. so i can understand that there are some delays right now. and for the prices i paid i’m willing to accept those delays right now…

i guess it’s hard to get budget prices and not the budget service Wink (i don’t see fasttech do such a sale?)

Ordered December 25, shipped December 29, and tracking shows it’s currently in Chicago so it should be here very shortly.

No complaints from me and I’m going to put another order in during their new year sale.

Just got item sent 21th December and two trackings from 31th Dec. showed up at HK Post.
So far everything is good. It’s only delayed because of NY hollidays.

Your order is in Chicago already?? Wow!  Now that was fast!  I can finally see an update on the HKP site and it was just posted as processed today and still in HK obviously.

Yeah, I was surprised to see that. It compares pretty favorably with my experiences with other companies in China. I’m impressed, especially considering the volume of orders they must have had. Hope everyone gets their orders soon!

I'm just amazed because the rest of us are still looking at ours just now being processed in HK and yours is already in Chicago.  You got real lucky with your order. Wink

My order from the 25th shipped on the 29th, and arrived in Hong Kong today, the 8th.

My other order which was shipped on the 28th and arrived in HK on the 31st, is still in Hong Kong.

Not what we have but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.

Ok I will describe my Wallbuys Christmas buying experience.

I think they suck. And that is being polite. I rate them about as bad as Dino-Defect.

After all this time and not being able to track my order I find this today under my order at their website.

You entered: RC146236045HK

Your Item’s Status Your item was accepted at 6:00 pm on January 08, 2013 in HONG KONG.

I won’t be buying from them again even if they give me 75% off.

You guys are pathetic. Terrible service.

Original post updated. Finally, my tracking number shows up on the USPS tracking site. The first one. It shows “acceptance” 9 days after it was supposedly “shipped.” Honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever seen that before. We’ll see.

My name is indy, and I've been a flashaholic since 2004.

I have NEVER been able to track anything via the tracking numbers ANY Chinese vendor gave me. I don’t even bother to look at the tracking info.

Very few of us have received our orders so until they start coming in, we don’t know if we are pleased or not.

It’s never worked for me, either. Like I said, my order is stopped off in Chicago but the only reason I know that is from putting the tracking number into the USPS tracking form. The Chinese tracking never did show much of anything.

I got an update from cherry, they refunded my 5599 small sun and said they were ‘looking into’ the tracking number issue. I don’t know if that means the order was or was not shipped.

I haven’t yet seen the refund in my card but PP said it was there, sometimes it takes 2 or three days for changes on my card to appear from PP.

+1, I got an email from Cherry about my sku 5599 small sun, and they immediately refunded me.

+1, I never even bother to check my tracking no’s as they rarely ever work. I just keep note of order dates, ship dates and arrival dates (if they arrive knock on wood)

Other than that, mine have been shipped and I’ll report back here when it all arrives!

I’m with you on this. I would rather pay full price to get a good service. Wow they did a 50% off sale, it doesn’t mean if their prices ate half their services should be half.

Common guys. Take into account this is new shop (not like DD), they are still learning and setting things up.

Next it was delay during NY hollidays they also had few days off. For comparation here was tracking RA3xxxx86CN from DX sent out 26th Dec. and it left HK on 3rd Jan. So it is DX so much better?! It was Christmass and NY rush that made additional delay.

Yesterday got shippmet from Wallbuys which was sent 21th Dec. Item as described and working. Also tracking worked but showed very late 3rd Jan and yesterday I could see it reached my post office.

Just relax, wait and see…..

Of course I’m not happy with all aspects of their business (specialy with latest price change), but if you spit on them, they won’t do us any favor in the future.

Well they said my order was shipped on Dec 31. If that is truly the case, why is it still in Hong Kong?

That’s deceiving their customer. If they lie to me once, they will lie to me again. But they won’t get another chance to do that.

Mine is already in Spain according to the tracking info, another order I placed days bfore at DX now says some items are not in stock…

This is a bit like playing the lottery, but I have had many problems with DX compared to others, even DD has worked better in my experience.

It might possibly mean that they packed everything, and brought it to the post office, while the post office had a few holidays, and probably a lot got stacked up, and they started to get through there pile which took a bit longer than normal.

Just my assumption!
I received 2 orders from them, 1 was 25th but before Christmas sales arrived in about 10 days, other was Christmas sale order, arrived 1 day later,
Since shipping date, 28th it took 7 days to get to my door!
That’s fast in my books, but I must admit that my other orders have been shipped on the 30th and only got a working tracking number from the 8th, not a biggie for me.

In contrast,my DX order, from the 25th hasn’t even been shipped yet!
