I would really like to have that case, but they don't accept paypal. I wish they had better choices for payments. Hopefully this case will pop up on Ebay soon. I also wish that there were other color choices, but for $15 it would a great deal.

yup, true, they don't have paypal for payment, only have the following

Payment
1.Western Union
www.westernunion.com
2.Moneygram
www.moneygram.com
3.T/T BankTransfer
Please ask your bank if any other bank fee will be charged when you make payment. (usually cost USD10 --- USD30 by a middle way bank)
4.MoneyBookers
We accept moneybookers, but the price would add about 2.5$.
www.moneybookers.com


Anyone tried using the above 4 to transfer money? how is it? is the fees high? thanks

The price for shipping to UK is $41.00 !!! I have asked him to quote for alternative that is nearer $10.00. Check out this website for calculating Chinese shipping costs http://www.sendfromchina.com/shipfee/calculate

Its a shame they dont have better payment system choices. Dont trust moneybookers, and all the others will end up to high fees with no recorse if it doesn't appear.

I'd but a 7" case in a heartbeat for that price but as it stands if I cant pay for it in a way I trust I wont be buying.

I used moneybookers for mine. No problems. Sent them the money from my bank a/c they passed it on.

How did you manage to pay via moneybookers that option isn't there.

Your right its not there anymore! I was order #1 when he re-opened his shop, I nagged him about not taking PayPal and the cost of the other options. He then reluctantly offered Moneybookers saying it was hard for him to get his money out, it seems now he has withdrawn it. If loads of people email him about using PayPal he may have to re-consider. The other options are just so expensive!

Quick question Nation.A.List, is your order in your order history. I sent one in last night and did the moneybookers thing (transferred the cash from my account today), but went back to check my order history (make a note for him if possible) and the history of the order I placed wasn't there. Just wondering if he has done a site refresh or something.

I agree, when you want something small like this and the cost of the cash transaction is the same amount its not worth doing it.
