    I do. I have no idea when, if at all, it'll change. Sort of depressing too because I'm at least hoping to get my stuff for one of my mom's gifts for xmas. Eh, can't exactly do much.

    I was sending business to Shoptemp and had about $1000 store credit left. Can I assume that I will still receive this money? This is a considerable amount of money for me!

    If you want it taken out as money, the best you can do is contact PayPal and see what happens. Don't hold your breath though.

    Still no free shipping. [​IMG]

    Seriously, I'd like to be able to make an order with my credit but if that option doesn't return there's nothing I can do.

    Doesn't look like it's coming back, so I just ordered a cheap thing for the hell of it.

    Problem is, I don't have enough credit in total even to cover the $8 shipping.

    To US customers who placed an order in mid-to-late November, I did receive my order in good condition on December 07 (Order placed/cleared on Nov16/17; Shipped Nov 18).

    If you have problems with a China Post Registered Airmail tracking number on the site they provided, try putting the tracking number in the US Postal service website at http://www.usps.com.

    Of course this is helpful only for people who recently placed orders for shipment to the US.

    It hasn't been for very long that the USPS has been integrating international package tracking but I have also used it to track items from other international postal services. I was able to get detailed tracking for a Canada Post package and I am also tracking an order from Hong Kong (Price Angels) which is still in customs.

    As a side note, hopefully the script that renames all mentions of Price Angels as one word to "shoptemp" will be removed? Test: shoptemp?

    That's a good thing.

    Be glad you didn't have more in your account like some of us. I had "$373.49", as there was never anything on ShopTemp I wanted.

    Ordered on the night of November 21st, so I'm guessing it came today or if not, tomorrow or the next day. I'll have to call my broski and see if he received it. I'll post when I receive my order, and I'll ask him the condition. Thanks for the post, Exangel! It gives me hope that my package will come before the 20th.

    EDIT: Just called, and he said the package did not come in today. I'm guessing either tomorrow or Wednesday.

    Thing is, seeing as the credit's there there are a couple of bits I wouldn't mind getting, but I can't right now.

    Unless you want to buy me some stuff with your credit, if it's still there. [​IMG]

    Dude, you have to wait 8 weeks before you can request a refund or whatever. It even says on the site it could take up to 8 weeks.

    And besides, you ordered during the Holiday season, shit at post offices is probably backed up so bad.

    If you really are in Hong Kong there probably is a problem (perhaps with confiscation by customs inspectors), but less than a month has passed and if you're really somewhere in the west you shouldn't be so bent out of shape with a free shipping international package. If you know that the item has cleared customs you should try tracking it in your own country. Also, if you purchased expedited shipping you should have access to detailed tracking about the package.

    When I ordered my iPlayer during the late spring/early summer there weren't any holidays going on that would have affected the delivery of my package, shipped from Shenzhen, China to Tucson, Arizona, but it still took a month. They did say it'd probably be a minimum of 14 days. It was not Shoptemp that I ordered from (that time), though.

    PayPal is a shitty company that isn't even a Bank and has a reputation for screwing over clients, in many cases with no clear benefit to any one in the transaction except for PayPal's motives to earn interest on the money themselves while it is locked by their "policy abiding" investigations... because they do invest earn interest on your money unless you withdraw it to your bank account or spend it. They have also outright stolen amounts of money from people when both parties had a happy and successful, completely harmonious (legal, authorized by PayPal TOS, and documented) transaction.
    They operate this way because they are so influential they expect people to give up pursuit of any court action against them, and most do. It is a bit of trouble in most places to hire a legal advocate or attorney and file legal claims against PayPal in order to recover money, and knowing this, they stomp on people.

    Opening a dispute about a transaction with PayPal that you know is involved with someone whose account that was already locked will probably get you nowhere, and if you are issued a refund and wind up receiving the product, the sellers have no way of recovering that money they were owed. (If their account is totally locked down, the seller may not even be able to participate at all in the dispute resolution.)

    I'm wondering if I should be worrying about my stuff xD. It was ordered Dec 5th and all...but it's still awaiting shipment TT-TT...it would really suck to have burned the $20 shipping for nothing.

    Mine's awaiting fulfillment.... which I don't understand because I paid with store credit. Sort of bummed because I got that MP4 player thing with 2gb memory for my mom as a gift [because im unemployed, so I tried], I got headphones just in case the player didn't come with any. And I got a 2gb microsd for my R4.. right now I only have a 2gb for my Acekard... and when I move out, I want to be able to give my mom the DSL and 2gb memory... BULLOCKS!
