    I ordered a supercard dstwo from here www.r4i3dscard.co.uk about a week ago and it said it had accepted the payment but hadnt started shipping. So i was thinking that i had been scammed and wasted £40. I was looking around the internet for reliable sites and some of the said that they dont ship in the holidays. So if i wait until school starts again then will my dstwo be shipped?

    If you read "don´t ship in the holidays" on a site thats ships from china, they mean holidays like the chinese new year.

    I would write an email to your shop and ask when they will ship.

    1. I read the holiday shipping thing on two sites, one was http://www.digitopz.com which is us based according to shoptemp, and there was another one that i cant remember.
    2. I did contact http://www.r4i3dscard.co.uk 2 days ago i think and i had no reply.

    I think http://www.r4i3dscard.co.uk ships from china and after only one week you shouldn`t worry about being scammed when you ordered from china. You can start to worry after a month.
    Maybe you should write another email next week.
    One thing is sure: They don`t care about your personal summer holidays.

    how do you know they shipped from china because i thought ".co.uk" on the end of a url meant they are uk based.

    They say shipping "shipping to the UK", a shipping time from 4-6 days is typical for royal mail from china to uk, the cost and shipping time for fedex etc. is also typical for china to europe and the site is owned by a chinese guy.
    Also there many flashcart-stores with a european website that ship from china. Some say it clearly, other try to hide this. (The sites with .de are easier to identify because normally the geman of the chinese guys is much worse than there english. :lol: )

    O maybe that explains the bad english on the site andI'm not worried about the shipping taking so long after being dispatched, I'm worried because it hasn't been dispatched at all.
