I hope people realize that any buying group or anyone else that gets merchandise in advance of payment can go south at any time. That's even if you get a check at the time of delivery.
X-posting as I don't want anyone to say that I never put a warning here.

A few stories that happen/happened to me with MYS

1. I returned 3 PS before they shipped, took screenshots and sent them but still haven’t received the 5$ per item after 3 weeks. They said they were “looking into it” and no news since than

2. Still waiting for a payment requested 13 days ago

3. I had a missing item that after looking through all my order I realized that they made a mistake when they put in the tracking number and flipped two digits (I thought they weee doing it with a barcode? How can this happen?)

4. My main issue:.. there’s an order that says it was delivered December 28 and still wasn’t checked in. After opening a ticket they claimed that it wasn’t received yet

Having said that, I’ve been with them for the past couple months and did tons of orders and this is the first time there are issues (besides some delayed payments)

Wait, MYS was paying for the return fee on the PS4s? @Markmann20

Cancelled / returned items are a halachik issue, but not my department. Certainly the buyer should be compensated.

thanks 

 "Unfortunately, we were unable to verify your information, so we canceled item(s) from your order.

For details regarding refunds and credits, see the What You Need to Know section below.

Please accept our apology for this inconvenience. We value you as a customer and hope to see you again soon."
Got the same thing (shipped to my home address).

Can I still use the same account (if I get a personalized tax Id)?

ALso directed at those who feel links should not "be made public" @S209


I see you googled them. Only 2 of the buying groups mentioned have websites that come up on google and is not easy to get contact info. Also since when are googleable things not put on the wiki? Doesn’t it make sense to have a page that you can  access all the buying groups websites from?

I have to admit that although MYS customer service takes time and is slow. They stood by their word and fixed the issues that I had. Much better experience that dealing with USA (which their cs support is mainly a Google form).

Anyone else hearing that payments are delayed from MYS? I was told that they can scan it but payments will not be made yet.

Or perhaps the printer was broken.
