Was alexmartin his screen name?
How long has it been?

If he’s not responding at all give it a few days and file a PayPal claim.

I bought one of his canopies on here and he got the money last week,he does communicate with me through pm's,says he's been busy and hasn't had the chance to send it off yet.I'm in San Francisco Ca and his mailing address is in San Jose Ca,i sent a USPS money order he's literally 45 -50 miles away from me.When I asked for his mailing address,it did not match his profile address,said he recently moved here to California.
He recently PM'd me yesterday morning and said he would update my tracking info through paypal,but pm'd him back and told him i paid through USPS money order.I guess he got me confused with one of you guys...
But at least he is communicating with me through pm's,i'll cross my fingers!!

He has a good sellers rating for the last year, but I still wouldn't pay with a Money order.

Have you filed a paypal complaint? If he doesn't come through, make sure you leave him a negative rating on this site so others wont make the same mistake.

In the same boat here. Paid via paypal and thankfully declined his offer of sending as a gift. Paid an extra $5 and sent funds as a purchase. Money well spent it seems.


Ordered 2 sets of blades and waited 5 days. Sent a PM asking for status and a tracking number, he said he would add tracking to the paypal transaction.


Its been 12 days and still waiting.

i never understood the desire to pay by sending as “gift”.
there are warnings all over here on helifreak. you also see earnings against it on Facebook.
it’s also against the paypal agreement you accepted when you signed up for an account with them.

after all that, you’d need to be a “special” person to pay by “gift”, as it literally makes no sense to do so.

Thank you.
Same here, I sent him funds for a set of blades and still haven't heard or received a thing.
Does anyone know his real name, address, etc?

Hopefully there is an explanation for this but he should speak up and let us know.

I have had some people offer a lower amount on an item and they offer to pay as a gift. It can help a little but in general I prefer all payments to be made for goods and service. 3% is a small price to pay.

Another main reason that I never accept payment as a gift is because I can't print shipping via paypal that way...

You can use PayPal to ship anytime you want. I use it all the time to ship things for my wife.

When a person sends you a gift, there is no associated shipping information provide by paypal. Yes, I cold manually enter the address info, but that is not my preferred method...
