The 18th of April has come and gone and the new supply of the Eachine ET1 is still not at banggood ready to ship as promised.


I told them I can buy elsewhere and asked for a cancellation and refund.

They replied "Would you mind waiting a few more days?
We will send you 200points after the order shipped or if it is still not shipped after 30 days".

Hmmm..... If still not shipped in 30days??   To me, given past experience, it is the same as saying you will wait at least 30 days more. No thank you.

I replied: No, I will not wait any longer. Please refund immediately.

They said they would do this on the next business day Monday and I believe they will as they have been good about refunds.

Just bad business in my opinion. Never overpromise and underdeliver. I hope you get your refund quickly.
Jin's microcosm store showed 100+ in stock when I ordered mine. If I remember correctly purchasing from microcosm just sends you to eBay anyway, so that's where mine was ordered.

Meanwhile, it just may be that the market has peaked and is coming back down to more reasonable levels, likely due to Jin offering up BIN pricing well below the peak prices we have already seen. One of his that was on auction with shipping priced at $40 sold earlier today for just over $260, or just a little over $300 delivered.

Perhaps Jin has brought a little bit of stability to what has been a rather volatile market.

This should prove good for folks like us, as now we need not pursue these things with the level of desperation that has seemed to prevail of late.

Update #2

Item successfully delivered to Summit, MS which is only about 2,000 miles from where I live.

So Aliexpress buyer protection case started, seller (LBLA Store) has been notified, and Paypal case opened !

Note added to Aliexpress and Paypal:

Tracking shows item delivered to post office and person 2,000 miles away from me. Likely tracking number was for a different item to a different person, and had nothing to do with my order. I know of two other people who have just had this same problem from this seller. It seems they are selling a product that they don't have in stock, and linking to a different item and customers tracking info to stall and delay having to refund for what they can't provide to ship.

funny, but I got the same 200 points and wait 30 days message or exchange for something else....from Banggood when I asked for refund on purchase I made 30 days ago...I replied NO...just refund money as I requested.

Hope they are as responsive as they were to Gil on refund request.  I won't do business with BangGood again and find their constant ads bombarding my screen as a nuisance...shame, they look like they carry a lot of good stuff, but I don't do business their way.

Update #3

Perhaps because I paid via Paypal, and also perhaps because I hit all the different methods of recourse at the same time, I now have confirmation of full refund from Paypal, so this issue is at an end.

Funny, but it was quite interesting to watch this scenario play out, especially after seeing Nick's experience and figuring mine was likely to go just the same way, which it did.

With Jin now offering a buy it now at what seems a fairly reasonable price with a deep stockpile in supply, it is a safe bet that people in the know now have a far better option. Just wish he had done this before I'd placed my Aliexpress order, and saved me some time.

Meanwhile, once I was pretty sure the Aliexpress deal was going to be a No-Go, I managed to win one of Jin's regular eBay auctions for even less than the BIN, and that should be along here most any day now, so hopefully it has all worked out favorably in the end!

Nice! Every one I bid on went higher, so I just hit the BIN. Impatience vs a few dollars- impatience every time.

Glad to see eBay has a handle on things. Just proof positive "package tracking" is more akin to "package estimation of location based on normal travel through the system"

I was going through my purchase history on eBay and couldn't figure it why I had a set of golf clubs purchased and refunded, then I recognized the seller name and turns out my Eachine listing has been changed to golf clubs ???

I think Nick stood no chance of getting either as the clubs were delivered to Denver, which was likely the proper destination, while Nick was just given that tracking number to keep him engaged longer, with the hope that the original seller would be able to source an Eachine engine for him before he decided to try for a refund. Didn't work out that way, but the seller took the chance that it might ... or so I think.
