p.6 #1 · Great deal for YN flash's !!


mine says shipped (auto email like 3 mins later after payment) and I didn't get that return email as of yet...(03/21/2013) so it could be that they decided to ship to some, and then decided that they can not get 900 flashes $5 each...I'm sure they'll try to get rid of as many buyers as they can. I wanna see other emails (I'd say they'll try to diversify the responses)...

they were getting orders every 1-2 minutes. I bet they're looking for a forum where some one spread up the info on $5 flashes..

Wow that is total bull. I would not bother leaving negative feedback if they would just be honest and say sorry but its a pricing mistake...blah blah...full refund.

But to blame it on customs...that is just bad business practice.

Did yours also say shipped before you receive the email?


Yes... it "shipped" within an hour of me placing the order.

That sounds so shady, and obviously total BS. I'll see if mine ever do show. He reported to me (noted here on page 5 I think) that he sent them out, so we shall see. No biggie either way. But i'll def give bad feedback

Those that have gotten the notice... when did you place your order? I'm wondering if they shipped a bunch and finally someone realized what had happened. I ordered somewhat early and have an estimated arrival of 3/26 to 4/11. I haven't gotten the notice from the seller either. Guess we'll see what happens.

I've just looked at this transaction again today and noticed that they are selling the flashes for $105. And they still offer shipping to US and rest of the world - I guess China Customs are not a problems here at all (and I've also received flashes from China before, no issues). So I'm sure they want easy way out of this mess. If I get this notice, they're getting negative feedback.

I placed my order very early on, so I'm hoping they sent mine out. It's their fault for being idiots, so I'm def opening a case and leaving negative feedback if they try to screw me! I suggest you all do the same!

thanks to my wife, pro accountant, who calculated that if they do ship them all, do you know how much they "loose"?
...........................................$90K....................
given that nearly 900 are sold at $100 less than original pricing. 900x100=$90K
do you think an ebay biz in China can deal with the loss of this magnitude?
Way much easier to re-register the accounts.

Except that the factory cost is probably more like $15-$25. Still not peanuts, but not nearly $90K either.
