hehe jumping in on the fun finally pulled the trigger.
Word to the wise. literally i signed up to aliexpress just to purchase this. Be patient and get ready for the ride of your life trying to buy something there.
I'm sure most of you are experienced with the process. But for those of us that are not. If your card and ship to dont match get ready for a headache it will get flagged and you get to start the appeal process (its preventing fraud by opening you up to full on identity theft.)
it takes a few days to get passed this, but the really shady part i'm still nervous about is you have to submit a photo id, picture of the actual credit card and bank statement. I blocked my picture and covered most of the credit card number. Dont forget to call your bank and warn them what your doing. Customer service is like talking to your dog they wag their tail but have no fucking clue what you are talking about completely utterly useless. If a claim is needed im sure the process is 10 times more painful.
The other part whatever you do dont open multiple orders WAIT for the appeal and escalate it as many times as you can i did it 4 times and got it finished in 2-3 days. there is a sale going on for another few days for 5% OFF and JNJ is only allowing 2 transactions per customer this ends at the end of this month (its only 5%). if you exceed that with payment failures you cant purchase that item. I wanted the carbon one but ended up with the painted black one because of the shitstorm caused by opening and deleting orders trying to use more then one card(more shady shit)
The good part is the seller is nice and will keep answering your questions. I begged him to glue the mast plate on so we'll see how that goes. there certainly is a language barrier more with the worthless customer service chat thingy not the seller hes been very gracious during this painful process.
As soon as it shows up and there isn't ice on the water I'll try to report back on the ride. I got the higher aspect carbon foil JNJ looking forward to seeing how it performs. there are 2 that look alike one is painted black over carbon and the one i wanted that i fucked up buying was the actual carbon looking one like tegrinshi got.
