    I have heard some people say it's really good, It's a PayPal certified world seller so they ship overseas then!

    I think Im ordering it tomorrow, I just want to know if its a good, trusted site? And if people have bought from there before and there experiences with them!

    Thanks!

    I have a friend who said they're good, and he's the one who got me into flashcarts so I trust him.

    Well i had a problem with it, Paypal said that the exchange rates have recently changed and to look over it again. We did, and we looked for everything to see if it was alright but it would let us buy. So yet again, its going to take 3 or 4 days to put more money into my brothers account and we are going to try Gameyeeeah. Maybe 3rd times the charm!

    I send out like 4 emails after ordering and paying for a DSTT on the 17th.
    I have not gotten any reply nor a confirmation that my DSTT has been shipped.

    I'm starting to get rather worried.

    The thing is that I don't want it delivered at my paypal address. Seeying as they use the paypal information to ship I contacted them to make sure they would ship it to the right address. I got a answer on that email (the 18th) asking for my transaction ID and then never got a follow up email.

    I have no clue what the status of my order is now.

    If within 24 hours they have not replied to any of my emails I will file a PayPal dispute with this store.
    Untill that time I recommend everyone to stay away from here. My order should have been send at the start of this week but instead I am left completely in the dark.

    I ordered mine from this site and got a confirmation email within a day from the person who runs it, saying when it would be sent off and an estimate on how long it would take to arrive.

    the confirmation mail is just an automatic respons I think. I had 1 real email which I recieved exactly 7 days ago.
    I think I would have been less worried if I could just have it send to my paypal address. However that exactly what I do not want.

    Did you recieve an email when they shipped it? How long did it take untill shipping?

    I don't think it was an automated response as it had the paypal transaction copied and pasted in it. I haven't had any further messages, however they may not have shipped quite yet as i only bought it 3 days ago.

    When you order from places like this you should expect 1-2 weeks to arrival, and lack of communication. Not every company has someone sitting there to send emails to every nagging customer (I nag too, don't get me wrong). Imagine if every customer did what we did and emailed constant questions - it takes a lot to check if it shipped, tell them, check status etc. I would only pester them if it doesn't come after a reasonable time.

    I had only one question and that question was to what address my package had been shipped to.
    This seems like a valid question that needs answering. Even though they don't have an employee for that they can take the time each day to at least answer the most important emails.

    Paypal dispute worked like a charm. Instead of waiting around for a week for a respons from them they replied within 2 hours.
    Unfortunately they only mentioned my order being shipped and not the address it has been shipped to.
    When they provide me with the address I will drop my claim and everyone is happy again.

    Well, they have to ship to the one you specified in Paypal. I have had customers try to make a claim in the method you are, and I merely insert tracking details in the dispute and paypal closes it in my favor. Hopefully you specified the correct address, and they are able to help you one way or another.

    I know they automatically send to my paypal specified address but I contacted (through various emails) them A MINUTE after ordering to specify the fact that I wanted to recieve my parcel on a different address then my paypal one.
    They replied asking for my Transaction ID one day before they would ship my order out. That was the last email I recieved from them.
    I emailed them back with my Transaction ID yet never gotten a confirmation that my address had been changed.
    As of thus I have no idea which address the package has thus been send too.

    Furthermore, the trackingnumber I recieved from them does not work on the Hong Kong Post Mail Tracker website.

    I would be very dissappointed in both paypal and MiniOnlineStore if my dispute would be cancelled right now before my question is answered. It seems that if you are a PayPal World Seller with buyer protection policy it is not a terrible thing for someone to open a dispute through paypal when you are failing to provide enough information to make that customer feel secure about his order.

    Above that I warned them 24 hours before starting the paypal dispute that I was going to take these actions and promised them to close my paypal dispute the minute they would provide me with the exact delivery address.
