If the seller is based in china or the product is not fulfilled by Amazon let the buyer beware he may have to wait/fight for his money back, and the likelihood of it shipping is slim to none.

I did some Googling and it looks like the seller does not have access to payment info.
I bought using amazon GC with 50 cents balance, even he will have access to payment info, I'm not afraid about the 50 cents on the GC, the only issue is, I got shipping email with a DHL tracking and DHL says tracking number is invalid, lets see what happens, I think amazon customer service will have to hire more employees to cover all customer complaints.

They certainly don't always compensate.

As the saying goes YMMV :)

I can't believe you guys don't get what he is trying to do.
Hint: UP* method!

I went to my order page and clicked contact seller and asked him about the wrong tracking number he provided, I just got the following email from amazon:

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Did anyone fight for their pennies?
For principle of the matter.

If you have to use your .02 in order to get your penny back you lose out...

Then why is he uploading DHL tracking? I think the UPS method works only with their tracking.

Everyone who "bought" this is dumb in my eyes! Period
I'd be embarrassed to say that I even tried.
Honestly it's stupid from the mods for letting such a thread exist
