I have a PayPal or a Google Checkout Account. Why don't you accept payments through them?
We researched both options and determined that there are too many issues regarding chargebacks by unscrupulous individuals. Granted, the majority of internet shoppers have the best of intentions. It's just the other small percentage that we prefer not to deal with.
Also, our business is not that huge, and we are unwilling to deal with fee payouts to either gateway as we are only moving our personal collection of hardware/accessories.
If you are local to the South Bay/SoCal area then we would prefer to meet with you to conduct the transaction. Otherwise, REGISTERING payments which can be tracked via USPS, FEDEX or UPS and REGISTERING package shipments should be sufficient to ensure that both money and product is received!
How can I trust you with my prepayment?
Because we are upfront with our offerings. We are honest about our limitations and uncertainties regarding receiving payments for our products which is more than what you will see on other sites. It's better for us to meet you face-to-face if you are local although we understand that not all business transactions can be done in that manner. Frankly - we hate being scammed ourselves !!
How long before you ship my order?
If we receive your payment on a business day, we need to deposit it into our financial institution and wait to make sure the payment clears. Typically if the cashiers check is drawn on a major bank, it should clear in a few days. For more obscure banks, the wait may take 1-2 weeks. However, you can also confirm clearance with your bank and contact us to verify it. Please rest assured, the moment the funds have gone through, we will ship your items ASAP.
