    Ahhh, so they simply changed their username, but the seller profile is still the same, with all the same negative feedback. Seems sorta like a pointless effort?

    I can't believe my luck. Though on the bad sellers list, iuubc sent the Robot Hero Airstrikes as promised. It took him a week to ship the figure and only wrapped the original box in one layer of bubble wrap - it arrived pretty battered - but otherwise I can't complain. The figure is in perfect shape and awesome to behold. Only the transformation is a little hard to do.

    I've got a question as to 17track.net's status updates. Maybe you can help me with your experience.

    I've bought one of my two WJ MPP-10s from ShowZ.Store and had no problems with the shipping process whatsoever. Then I placed another order with them and at first, the shipping process went smoothly until this showed up. Since then, there haven't been any updates:

    Don't know if this is still common, but I was told a few years back it was common for shipments, specifically from China, but possibly elsewhere too, to be loaded in containers for export, and if something was found to be in violation of their policies, the entire container could be returned, resorted, and then resubmitted for inspection. I don't know how accurate this is, but supposedly if the same shipment was refused for export a second time, it could be ordered completely destroyed, even if only one offending item was contained in the entire shipment.

    Oh boy... if that's true - do you know how PayPal or the official Chinese/ Hong Kong sellers have handled these cases?

    In my experience, ShowZ is good with responses and will try to find a solution that works. Still, Paypal's got your back. If there hasn't been an update on your shipment within a week, or a satisfactory reply from the seller, contact Paypal and open a case. The seller can refund you, offer a replacement shipped, or Paypal can rule in your favor and refund you themselves if there's no evidence the shipment is moving.

    Ebay:
    He could be a scammer, I made my last two purchases from two sellers who had served the products, having only more than a dozen. In fact, neither one nor the other, after two months, I still arrived and the sellers no longer made themselves heard even if they are registered users. From tomorrow I can finally ask paypal for a refund and I hope for good money to get back!

    Happened with my latest order from ShowZ. Just contact them and they'll resend it for you with a new tracking.
    No need to call PayPal lol Showz is trusted

    Indeed. There is a reason they have the reputation they do.

    Just to be clear: I didn't question their reputation. I know the problem is caused by the carrier/shipping process.

    Two to three years ago, I bought a First Gokin NT-01 Cerebral from them and all went well and quickly - if that gives you any reassurance...

    this is what I got from liujunling87_5 took longer than usual for a small packet it was listed as sent via china post but was sent via e packet I have made a claim with pay pal and I will escalate it to a claim in up to 2 days time as you can see I got a small plastic transformer face which I assume came from a transformer where you can change their faces , why build up a good reputation good feedback and just go bad like that , another thing where do they get the stock from did a supplier let them down any ideas
