    I ordered a CycloDS on RealHotStuff and I sent my money order on 12/02/08 and now its 12/08/08. (I'm from Illinois and they are in New Jersey)They still haven't notified me that they recieved my payment. How long should I wait until I go "Oh s---" [​IMG]
    I really don't have doubt about the website itself, I trust them 100%

    If you were me, what would you do?
    PLEASE!!! I WANT MY CYCLODS!!!! [​IMG]

    I'd try to have a bit more patience.

    Why don't you just send them a polite email asking about the status. There is no harm in asking them if they succesfully received your payment. If there was some oversight regarding your order, your email may be the spark that gets it straightened out. If its just a normal delay they should be able to tell you that too.

    I'm pretty sure you can just open a support ticket on their site. They're usually very fast at addressing issues.

    I ordered a CycloDS on 12/07/08 and got a notification of payment immediately, they shipped it yesterday. Should have it within the next day or two.

    You sure the EM didn't just go to your spam filter or something?

    Yeah I'm pretty sure I checked. Thanks for helping though. I e-mailed rhs today, im waiting for their response.

    I have a feeling the USPS lost my money order, but I can't make any judgements yet. MUST BE PATIENT

    I've been a member of GBAtemp for over an year now, and I joined here when I ordered my first flashcart - the R4. I was asking the same questions. Yes, expect christmas holidays to slow things down. I know. I was pulling my hair out too. Just use a Santa hat to cover the marks where you tore your hair off. [​IMG]

    ^ Heh.

    But this would probably be the worse time to order something out of states for us Americans.

    I can't tell you how long it took some packages to arrive from the UK for me.

    Now, since it's the Holiday season, it would take twice as long.

    I'd be bald the next time I order something during the Holiday season.

    Thats awesome dude, congrats, i have my second flash cart coming from real hott stuff coming soon. I trust the site as welll they seem to be my favorite site to order from. if they ever ripped me off i would just drive to New Jersey and kick their ass. lol


    but nah those guys are awesome, they even gave me a tracking number right now its like in carolina i believe. they shipped it in less than 24 hours.

    I live in florida so I think it will be here by monday i think.

    Received the CycloDS i ordered on the 7th......it came the 10th. Didn't get the free 2gig card, but a paper inside said it would arrive separately. Haven't gotten that yet.
