    Nothing is a 100% safe, and no online store will every be a 100% safe.

    I'm pretty satisfied so far with my experience with hopebuy. That's not to say i haven't had any problems. I'm just fairly sure that the problems that i've had are beyond their control. Ordered on the 6th, shipped on the 26 not here, and the tracking number they gave me for ups doesn't work so i don't know where it is either. Needless to say shipping wasn't as fast for me as others have said, but as long as it gets here by monday it's cool, after that i'm gonna start worrying.

    All the "tracking" numbers should work. Hopebuy gives out a reference number, so on the left hand side of the UPS site press on reference and it should work!!

    Hopebuy hasn't given an update in a couple days but last I heard the english version was in stock and shipping as soon as payment was recieved.

    My order appears to have not have had my city in it. Hopebuy emailed me and I wrote them back with the city but I guess they didn't get it since I got the same email today so that probably explains my tracking number not working.

    The number they gave you in the email is not the tracking number, you need to ask them for the tracking number.
    XXXXXXXXXXX -----> This number is what they gave me in the email.
    XX XXX XXX XX XXXX XXX X -----> The real tracking number they told me later on.

    Another happy HopeBuy customer here...

    My order took only ONE DAY to get to me, and the tracking worked perfectly.

    Looks like hopebuy got things sorted out on their side. Now the number they gave me works as a reference number and putting it in as such gave me the tracking number on my package. Now we play the waiting game.

    Let me tell ya, for a site with such broken english they sure do buisness good

    apparently they posted my package (g6 +passcard) a couple hours after i bought it, which is pretty good on a sunday
    the tracking number doesnt work though, maybe its for the chinese ups system or something

    Got my G6 lite + Passcard 3 from Hopebuy this morning. I'm very satisfied with their customer service and shipping. Let the gaming begin.

    I'm just about to order from hopebuy for shipping to UK. Their shipping options are as follows:

    ADS $20.90USD
    DHL $21.70USD
    TNT $22.60USD
    UPS $30.50USD
    FedEx $41.80USD

    I've never heard of ADS - are they a respected company, do they have a website? Any idea how quickly ADS, DHL or TNT shipping will take? I'd like it as soon as possible but not enough to pay an extra $10 for UPS or an extra $20 for FedEx.

    How long does it take for hopebuy to send the products? They've reviced the order and payment, also answerd my thread on the forum were I wanted them to make sure I got the enamel navy case. Still, my products haven't been sent [​IMG]

    Anyone who bought from them and can tell how long time it took for them to send the products after the payment was recieved.

    Edit: It seems as they shipped it just a few moments after I posted.
