I paid for mine but it says payment failed please try again, i assume Ric has a BLF handle i can PM?

Also after you have ordered did you get any confirmation e-mail from CNQG, i’ve never bought from them so i don’t know if they send one or how long it takes, i got the paypal e-mail confirming i made payment

I think I ordered two in NW. Did anyone else get a payment failed message after paying? My Paypal account still shows two $23.00 payments, but on the vendor’s site it says payment failed.

You are not alone. I have the exact same issue and it leaves me wondering.

Mine says ‘payed’ (paid) and unshipped.
Hope they ship it out soon Smile

Lights out! That's when things get interesting...

You won't get any confirmation of purchase immediately.  That's standard operating procedure.  You'll get shipping notice from Ric when they ship.  

As far as getting Payment Failed screen, I haven't had experience with that issue. But I wouldn't worry too much.. Ric always takes care of us.

Bought 1 NW w/tracking.  No issue with ordering though I did find it a little cumbersome / confusing. 

Thanks!

I haven’t received any e-mails either, but I can log in to my account on their website & view my order. It does show confirmed & payed but not yet shipped. So, although I didn’t pay the extra $2 for tracking, I still have a pretty good idea about what’s going on.

This is what they show after I have made my payment.

Anyway I just realize something that if you go to User Center > My Order the status is shown as “Confirmed, Payed, Unshipped”. So I think CNQ has received our payment in their system, while the payment failed status may be just an error.

Yes. That's what occasionally happens with CNQG. Nothing to worry about. (If Paypal shows the payment, it means that he did get it)

Ric's profile is here: Ric-CN

For the people which never have ordered from cnqg, the street, zip and town is all filled in the adress field and the error after paying with Paypal and going back to the sellerspage is normal. You also don’t get an email from them just one from Paypal. After ric sends it out he usually send a notification email which contains the tracking number.

You guys should read the previous posts….

Their process is a mess, but once they made email contact with me, they were extremely helpful.

I ordered one for a female friend that I am trying to get hooked on flashlights.

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

I just ordered one for the sake of it not a bad price really and a lot of my friends always ask if they can borrow one of my lights whether they are at my house or going somewhere else, I figured this would be a good one to lend them so they don’t damage any of my more expensive lights.

Hi! first post here, been a long time lurker and chanced upon this light while looking for a light upgrade!

Ordered 1 without Logo with XML2 T6, had a tough choice deciding between nw or cw but the wallet says only 1 !

Well crud…somehow I bought one in NW without meaning too. But what’s done is done and I’ll have to live with yet another unintentional purchase Smile

At least flashlights are way cheaper than guns!
