Ordering from our favorite online hobby shop?

I finally made an order from the us warehouse. (you prob know who i am talking about) When I tried to check out, my card was declined. huh? A typo maybe? I did just get back from Vegas, and maybe i went on black out gambling marathon or something? Nope. Funds are good, so what the heck. Called my bank and they shut my card down due to the fact that it was an overseas, possible fraudulent , transaction........ I thought it was us warehouse? Any way, My stuff isnt in the mail but a new card is.

Nothing new.
The billing comes from China not the particular warehouse that the items will ship from.

Paypal is the way go.

I had to stop buying from Hobby King after Paypal closed my account. So far I haven't missed them.

I will probably have to open a new paypal account and give that a try. My old pay pal account has my ex on the name and i cant change it? Cant open two accounts under same email....... so i will have to start a new email/pay account.

fmw...you say you havnt missed them. can you go into more detail as to why? I can say that ordering directly from hong kong seems like a pain in the butt to me. Just wire us your money and it will get there when it gets there. It may be back ordered for 3 months, and it takes 90 days to get a refund......... Thats prob a little exaggerated but thats the feeling i get. us warehouse is out of stock on about 90% of items all the time.... Any one else care to chime in, good or bad. They seem to have unbeatable pricing.

Price isn't everything. Simple as that. We have some importers here in the U.S. that come close in price and provide oustanding service. The only things I used to buy from HK were batteries and EC3 connectors. I can get through life buying these things elsewhere. Paypal is not an option for me since I'm banned for life. I use American Express because it requires payment in full every month and HK doesn't accept American Express. So there isn't much I can do about it.

Visa and MCard will accept payment in full every month also.? I have had good luck thus far with HK. Batteries from China take about 3 weeks, but everything from US warehouse comes in about 3 days.
