    Hi, I have questions about Eachmall (I already asked in "Cheapest GW" thread , but no response)

    The item (the Gateway 3DS) says "Free shipping"... However, in shipping method selection, there is no "free shiping": Standard Shipping US$14.73 / HK DHL US$17.99.
    How can I benefit from "free shipping"?

    Also, about payment methods... There is no paypal, I already expected that... but... No Visa? No credit card?
    I don't know to use that Wester union or that Webmoney methods... In their payment guide they talk about VISA but I don't see VISA in payment methods...

    If it matters, my country is Spain.

    If I can't overcome this situation today, I will surely buy from Yeah Geek. Some says that YG is fishy, but I see Eachmall's contradictions on "free shippmen" and payment methods fishy too.

    Thanks in advance.

    Update:
    Finally I bought it from Yeah Geek. But, I have a quite odd situation with the payment.
    Price shows in EUR in the web, however, in the banc account's movement description, it shows that they charged me on "Yuan Renminbi", 395.25 exactly. WTF? Why that divise?
    They converted those yuans to 53.33 eur, so, they are charging me 3,33 eur more. I don't think that it's bank charge, 'cos drescriptions says "Comision: 0,00"
    Im going to contact with YG to see what happend with those 3,33 eur.

    I know that is MUCH cheaper buying with Yeah Geek that "official resellers" (Spain resellers priced GW3DS for 70 eur, shipping price included - 65 without shipping, so it's 20 eur more) but the shipping time are worst and, If you put a price in your web, the best should be to maintain that price, with no surprises...

    Update2
    I received shipment confirmation from Yeah Geek, (still no word about Payment issue of +3.33 eur charging) and I noticed something funny:

    From Switzerland? Wasn't this web a chinese web-shop??
    Well I asume that if it comes from Switzerland it will arrive faster to Spain, but is strange that they ship from there.

    Their free shipping said it would take 10-20 days to arrive for me, so you're probably better off with one of the other shipping methods anyway, though it's strange you didn't have the option.

    As for the credit card thing, when I purchased a gateway from them last night, it gave me these two options for paying with a credit card

    Credit Card (by Tenpay)
    accept Visa,Master and JCB card
    • Credit Card (by GC)
    • Visa , MasterCard , Discover , Diners​

    Well, I have tried changing my shipping country to check if something changes.

    I noticed that with some countries, in shipping methods, it adds "Free Shippment", or it changes shipping price of "Standard Shippment", so I asume that NO FREE SHIPPING to Spain (Misleading advertising??)

    Also, no Credit Card option with any of the 4 tried countries (I tried China, USA, Spain, Czhec Rep.)

    Maybe is that seller specifically?
    Item Code: GT-RS40000
    Seller: G016
    (The only one that has Stock)

    I will mesage the customer support to see if they can help me.

    paying with western union is simple, I paid it that way. you go in a place where they offer the service, give the money and the payment details, sign 1 or 2 things and they do the rest. search for "western union points" or something like that for your city.

    I placed an order at Eachmall yesterday and today I get a mail asking for a photo of my credit card and some ID. Is this standard? This seems very dubious to me.

    I once bought a GW there, shipped to France.

    Paid by Tempay with credit card, took some times from Tenpay to validate my card.

    Free shipping of course but if you can't have this, try yeahgeek for another good website.

    The verification is only if you choose tenpay to pay. It's safe, but next time you should use GC instead.

    Thanks for the replies. No way am I sending any photos of anything . I contacted their CS and they are refunding me, and will accept payment from another method. Seems crazy to me but there you go.

    Reading all you guys, I reach the conclusion that Eachmall is more obscure than Yeah Geek.
    So, I will buy it from YG... only 2 eur of shipping is really low. I don't mind the wait.

    Same problem with TC. Tried ordering 2 GW cards from Eachmall.me and the only payment method for me is Western Union. I want to pay via PayPal so I contacted them but no reply.

    TC? Sorry I don't know what TC mean.
    Anyway, I asure you that there is no Paypal option (in ANY flashcart shop). Some users say that Paypal doesn't want any relation with Flashcard purchases (I asume they have legal issues with that, or they want to maintain a "we don't like piracy" reputation)

    Also, this is what EACHMALL.me answered me:
    But no word about the paying method, so I asume that VISA payment is like this, only for some countries. Of course, no Paypal.

    In other matter, I received shipment confirmation from Yeah Geek, (still no word about Payment issue of +3.33 eur charging) and I noticed something funny:

    From Switzerland? Wasn't this web a chinese web-shop??
    Well I asume that if it comes from Switzerland it will arrive faster to Spain, but is strange that they ship from there.

    I just ordered from Eachmall. $63 with 6-8 day shipping. You could say I live life on the edge.

    Price on site is just description, it will be higher on your invoice since they charge in Chinese yuan.
    Also,
    Eachmall, is ok, shipping was fast they reached me in 2 weeks time. But I had one more week with verification. Once its done Eachmall is good choice, like any other Chinese store.

    Oh sorry. I used MasterCard with TenPay, also didn't use free shipping, would have taken a month or more (usually more than 2 months to Canada from China).
