I ordered two batteries (6S) from hobby king paying with paypal. I didn't need them that bad and was willing to wait for the shipping. I ordered on July 7th and they still didn't show up as of today, (August 8th). So today or yesterday I was thinking I better check on them and so I looked at my paypal to see when they were purchased. I realized it had been a month.

I went to hobby king's website and got on their live chat and they informed me that paypal did not notify them that payment was received. Has anyone ever had that happen?

They were very nice about it on the online chat and I was nice, what the heck can a guy do/type to them that will get them moving???? They said they found the payment and would ship out right away. Kinda crazy that they must be informed of a payment.

Their US warehouse is in Tacoma...they got to live around here somewhere.

Paypal needs to notify them, BS.

Might be typical if across seas. But otherwise no shouldn't take that long. Never will I deal with hobby king again. Nothing but crap quality.

You should have been figure something wasn't right when you weren't getting shipping notices or receipt in your email. It is always possible that some glitch happens, but you should always get a receipt from the seller within a day or two.

That did happen to me a long time ago, I noticed right away as I let two days go by and the payment said pending. I chatted with them and gave them the transaction ID. The batteries came in a week later.

When I order from HK, I am in no hurry as well. I do however pay attention to make sure that the process is happening.
