    Their site's been down for 2 days now as of writing, has anyone been able to contact them? Even last week it looks like people were having trouble with their orders. I also noticed their twitter & Facebook pages stopped updating in October.

    Yeah, I have some orders in limbo myself right now, not sure what's going on. The day after my orders were placed, I went to place another one and all payment methods were removed. Just be patient this happens with grey markets from time to time, patience is a virtue <3 :P

    I was able to get in contact with someone using their aliexpress email and this is what I got:

    Situation is strange, they effectively shut down right around Black Friday, when the site was still accessible but people were having problems. Now according to this, the site IS closed, but it's still possible to make orders.

    But why would they be using a yahoo email address for customer service??? Seems a bit phishy to me.... What email did you reach out to, to get a response from?

    Either way, looks like I'll be doing a chargeback, because as far as I know, none of my stuff was ever shipped out..... ><

    It shows up on tracking that my stuff shipped but should of got here this week. Nothing. I feel like I got played here and now i don't think I can get my money back because I would need contact them, which isn't possible since they went down.

    http://www.aliexpress.com/store/1231262. The taobaodao email means it's probably them, taobaodao.com linked to eachmall.com. (I didn't try this email, I used the one aliexpress provided)
    I don't know if the shop is still operating, looks like they're still getting decent reviews though.:unsure:

    If you paid by credit card, you can reverse the charge with your card company if you explain what happened.

    If was a debit card you will have to dispute the charge with your bank, again by explaining the situation.... However (at least in the US), you are less likely to get your money back ifyou paid with a debit cardbas opposed to a credit.

    @Sleet thanks,bill reach out to them first before calling myvcard company

    UPDATE: Just sent an email to their official address here: reply@eachgame.com threatening to do a chargeback if I don't find out what's going on here, and if they're unable to resolve this issue. Hopefully I'm not p****** in the wind here..... I don't trust that yahoo email, seems way out of place to me....

    Any news regarding this? The site is still down.

    On a side note, are there any comparable sites for flashcarts? To the best of my knowledge, they were the only ones selling R4i Gold 2016s for 5$ a pop.

    They were selling cheap clones, but if you don't mind the quality,vfor the price therebitems were good.

    I gave up on eachmall tbh, my guess is they were under a lot of legal/political pressure and decidedbto close up shop.

    There are other similar Chinese sites out there like www.tradetang.com, www.alibaba.com etc. I cannot attest to their reliability as I've never ordered from them, but ts the same type of marketplace. Wholesale clones/knockoffs etc

    Well, eachmall was good while it was here. It has like a 2.2 out of 10 rating but its a good site.

    I bought a genuine gateway for $60.01 + free shipping when gateways were going for $70 - $80. Arrived in less than 3 weeks during chinese new year.

    Fake dualshock 3 - Still use it after over 8 months and working fine. $8. Better than one that came with my ps3

    Free R4 revolution + $1.53 shipping - Came on time and works. I ended up giving it to my friend because i sold my ds lite. He isnt having problems with it.

    The customer support was great, they answered my questions.

    Eachmall was great for cheap flashcarts. I got burned on a 'wireless' DS3 knockoff that ended up being a wired-only clone with a removable cable, but I got a few R4i clones under $3 each over the years.

    Nope. No battery, nowhere to put a battery, no bluetooth hardware. I would've thought it was basically a DualShock 2 clone with a miniUSB port, but the motion stuff actually did work. I'd bought a different controller in the past and it worked as expected (still works, in fact, although there's a noticeable degradation in trigger quality), so I'm guessing it was an order mixup more than anything, but their support team never responded and it wasn't worth the $9 or so to try and do a chargeback.

    Yeah, I think the website ratings are so low because there were multiple sellers using the site. The guys selling the flash kits were great, always received my order in 9-10 days. Pretty quick coming from China.
