I have been speaking with Salehoo member Yanjun re: iPods which he has had a lot of interest in from Salehoo members. Go to 'Most wanted' forum for more info if need be.
In our e-mails in the last 20 mintues or so, I explained I was new to the Directory and that I am very cautious, obviously because I don't fully understand the import process and haven't actually imported anything into the UK ever!
I want nanos from him, but said the only way I am comfortable paying is by Credit Card (my credit card is a Mastercard) which is very secure from my point of view and his.
First of all is this correct when he is based in Australia and I in the UK?
Also can I actually loose money paying by credit card as I know that my particular card provider allows me to do a 'chargeback' if I don't receive the goods in a reasonable timeframe. Its called 'raising a dispute on a purchase', and can be done anytime up to 120 days after the card purchase transaction date and means Mastercard (in this case) actually put the money back on the card on this instruction - this is definate for my card in the UK (I have confirmed it with them over the phone), but does it apply to USA and Australia etc?
The reason why I ask is that Yanjun has told me he is setting up a credit card facility - obviously very interesting! and has e-mailed me the links to the sites with whom he is thinking of doing it with, which are below:Link hidden: Login to viewLink hidden: Login to view
Would you guys, advise me on this? Are the above sites good, and do I still have the built in credit card protection (explained above) with these sites??
Sorry! this is a long post, so thank you taking the time to read it, and of course any help and advice most appreciated.
