    1) signed up for the newsletter, never got an email about the presale Supercard (missed the cheap price) Yes I checked my junk inbox.
    2) created an account.....now I can`t log in (won`t accept password/email)
    3) No Paypal?..........AlertPay (whatever that is) won`t take a visa/mastercard gift card.
    WOW..what next? or is that some incredible bad luck?

    1) sad to hear about the SCDS2, but you're not the first one to complain, some people didnt receive the newsletter... they're looking into it
    2) you should contact the support to tell them about that
    3) Paypal automatic payment has been disabled temporarily, contact the support to arrange manual payment via paypal

    Every site has its problems here and there. [​IMG] They can all be worked out by keeping your cool and posting your issues in a mature way.

    Bad luck. I ordered an R4 to try out R4 wood. It arrived fairly quickly. Works great. Payed with paypal.

    Paypal is temporarily disabled. They should fix it within a week.

    thats a completely random statement, Alertpay works great and it's our recommended solution.

    The service has been riddled with issues. I can't call the company a "scam", but it definitely has had A LOT of issues. I would sincerely advise against using them.

    We haven't had any problem with them. Everything's perfectly smooth at the moment.
    Perhaps some people have had issues with them before, but I can tell you a LOT of people have had issues with Paypal aswell (for example ShopTemp lol) so don't be too quick to judge.

    tKo HaXoR: no, they can contact the customer support to arrange manual payment no later than today. No need to hold out.

    Ouch. I disagree. I bought my products and it arrived extremely fast, and it was cheap too. There may be better sites... but at least ShopTemp is extremely reliable.

    Personally, the customer service (getting questions answered, updates from Costello and such), makes up for the little kinks in a NEW website.
