fter searching for days, I have finally found a web store which accepts unverified PayPal. It's nothing in comparison to stores like Amazon, Newegg or buy.com but you can get fair amount of products that you might find on any other store. The thing to note here though is that, the store is Hong Kong based, so most of the items available are Chinese. I know what you are thinking - "How long will the items last?". I have no idea myself.
The site is DealExtreme. An additional benefit of using the site is that, you can get your item shipped for free. The site offers free shipping on many items. Although, if you would like to get the item delivered to you faster and with utmost care, you should probably use UPS or any other methods (which you can choose from on the site). I would suggest you to use the free option only if you are ordering item of less value or something that does not break up easily. Think about it while you are ordering electronic or other items that require proper handling.
The item that I had ordered was delivered to me in 21 days. I had used free shipping . So, it was normal for the item to take such long time. There was no fault on the item though.
I'd quickly run through the whole process of ordering an item from the site.
Register on the site with your PayPal Email and verify your account (by going to the email and clicking the link.). Please use your PayPal email and not any other email while registering.
Once you are done adding the item to your shopping cart, open your shopping cart.
If you would like to get a tracking code for your order so that you can track where the package has reached, click on Add Tracking. Adding tracking feature will cost you some money. After you are done, click on the first "Check out with PayPal" button that has been highlighted on the picture above.
You will be asked to enter the shipping details and continue to check out with PayPal. Press on Continue and you'll see a similar page :
Click on "Place your order" . This is the final step to complete the process. After that, just sit back and wait for the item to arrive. If you have received a tracking code, then do check where your package has reached. You will be notified on your order details page once the item leaves the store.
That's it. You've made an order. If you have any problems, contact the customer support.
No extra fee or customs was taken what-so-ever. But, you may be charged customs according to your country's policy. Shipping is free for most of the items whereas some items might ask for money. For learning more about changing the shipping details please continue reading.
What if I want to change my shipping address after I have placed my order?
Yes, you can change it. The item is not shipped immediately so you will have time to change the address. If you have to make changes to your shipping address, do it as soon as possible. To change the address, follow the instructions below.
I see an error : This transaction cannot be processed. The country code in the shipping address must match the buyer's country of residence.
DealExtreme uses the address on your PayPal account as the default shipping address. PayPal won't make the payment unless your shipping details and billing details (PayPal address) is same.
If you get such an error, don't worry, just make the payment selecting the PayPal address as your shipping address. You can change it later on. Read below to learn how to change the address.
How to change the shipping address?
Just make the payment with the address of your PayPal account as your shipping address; don't make any changes to it.
Then, go to https://my.dx.com/MyOrders/Index and click on the order number of your recent order.
Now, click on EDIT.
Once you are on the page, click on Edit besides the Shipping Options. Enter the new address and click on Save once you are done. Your shipping details will be changed.
Or, you can simply contact the customer support and ask them to change it for you.
Good Luck. If you have any questions, comment below.
