About three weeks ago, I ordered a power tool from a company in Iowa (I think). When I sent them an email some time later, Google was unable to deliver it, even though it kept trying for several days. Turns out the company was actually in China. I filled out a form on PayPal, and today I received a refund. That's good service. One contact with them, and I got a refund. I wonder how that works out with PP. I think it would be a loss for PP because a scamming company in China isn't going to keep cash in a PayPal account that can be taken back.
I got a tracking number on the item, and it is supposedly on its way from CA - supposedly. I've found that Chinese companies can manipulate tracking numbers.
I try not to order from overseas. Sellers are making it hard to determine where they are actually located. I just got caught again when ordering something on Amazon. The clue I had was the delivery date was more than a week off. How can you tell on eBay or Amazon where the company really is located? They all list local addresses.
