So I used shoptemp last week so order an acekard 2 (not 2i). I remember when I picked shipping there were three options: 3-5 weeks, 3-5 days, or next day. I chose 3-5 days. This was LAST thursday night. That makes this past week 5 whole days, plus the friday the previous week when I had ordered it. Also, is it supposed to say that the order is from "ZhiFeng Wang"?

Where the hell is my box?

wow, just my luck. But I mean, I ordered it on the night of september 23rd. Honestly at the very least it should have left hong kong and should be in the US somewhere, and then it'll get finished being shipped b/c US mail doesn't take this break. Right?

so you paid for express and didn't get it..
you're not the first, that's why never pay for express shipping at shoptemp
it's like throwing away $20

By 'last Thursday', I'm guessing you mean the 23rd, correct?
You say you ordered it 'late' on that Thursday, so lets figure 8:00pm EST. That puts it at 9:00am Friday (24th) morning in China.
Figure a day to process and pack your order, puts us at Saturday (25th).
Figure there's no shipping on Saturday/Sunday, so we'll jump to Monday (27th) for the day they ship the item.
3 to 5 days puts you at Thursday (30th), Friday (Oct 1st) or Monday (2nd) to receive it.


Though honestly, I doubt that the fast shipping will get you your package any sooner than the standard "3 to 5 weeks" option, which will typically take 8 to 15 days in my experience so I'd say you'll get it before Friday the 8th.

Ouch.

Since you were willing to pay that much and you live in the US, I'd suggest RealHotStuff next time.

-.- Stop advertising that website

That's where I bought my stuff, but I'm positive I'll be using ShopTemp for now on.

Right, because paying the same money for a clone is a good idea...
But at least you get the bonus of them lying to you about it being real! oh wait.

That link is kind of old and outdated.


RealHotStuff has lied about updates:

And knowingly sold clones which they lied about being real:

Thats all well and good but tell me why the DSTwo I got from them last week is legit?


And why is the Acekard 2i I bought from them 3 months ago legit?


Shoptemp has had some bad threads too man. Doesnt take away from them, does it?


I'm just suggesting a faster solution for the same/a little bit more money for US citizens.

No one said EVERY card from RHS is fake... But rather than owning up to the fact they got bad cards, they decided to lie about the clones being real and then lie about an update to fix their "real" cards.

I haven't seen many... other than people getting impatient about ordering from a company based in China.
You're not going to get your package from them in 3~5 days. It'll take 3~5 days to clear customs alone.
Admittedly, their 3~5 day shipping is a bit of a scam, but it's not really THEIR fault beyond offering it.

And I'm just suggesting that people don't buy from a place that has knowingly sold clones, lied about them being real, then lied about an update fixing the problem (of it being a clone).

Might as well the way you're going on in here.


I'm gonna go ahead and leave since this is going nowhere and getting boring.

RHS took back my clone and shipped out a legit one no questions asked, even when it was 3 months past the return policy. They even sent out a prepaid envelope to send back my clone.

Pardon me for not trusting a company who has knowingly sold clones, lied about the fact they were selling clones and then lied about an update to fix the problem with said clones.
I realize that's getting repetitive, but it's the truth.

And apparently "boring" means "because I lost an argument based on a 3 year old topic".


But hey... if YOU want to buy from a company that is known for lying about selling fake products, be my guest.
Just don't expect others to recommend them or back them up.

I too recommend RHS

I bought 3 dstwo and 2 R4..with no problems
3 day shipping is better than 2 weeks

shoptemp, is too slow to reply to support tickets
for me, it took a week to get a return address from them

but I guess, people goes with what works for them
If you like shoptemp than go with shoptemp
If RHS works better for you than, buy from RHS

edit:
I think RHS works better for people who lives in the USA,
most if not all of us flash cart users are very impatient, so the free 3 days shipping is a big plus

I was quite satisfied with all of my Shoptemp purchases. I ordered a Acekard 2.1 on the 23rd of October and it got here two days ago.

It is unfortunate that you have not gotten your package yet but I am sure it will get to you. Just now you know your lesson about shipping yo.

Also, RHS's rep has been exaggerated a bit and blown up a little more than necessary. Some people have had terrible experiences but there are a larger majority of people who have not. They have been around since before the "R4 vs M3 Simply" (lol wut? same cart IKR) days and have had pretty good Rep until most recently.

I have not ordered from them for a while but I do think you should consider them next time if this shipping thing is an issue.

After all, like TwinRetro said, they sent him a genuine cart in exchange for the clone -- to my knowledge a majority of people had the same done for them.

So people, stop sucking Shoptemp's dick. There are other places to buy from, you know. (Also, just for the record, I have used Shoptemp for my last 6 purchases so don't say I am hatin'.
