    Everyone knows that pink dinosaurs are harmless... especially after a few dozen dino-sized tokes! :)

    I'm normally a fairly patient person... but I'm having a hard time with the wait on this particular piece. Anticipaaaaaaaaation...

    I reckon that would be a good one to hand round to a crew who were losing it a little on acid, with a little suggestive terminology perhaps to kickstart their imaginations!:lol:

    Bummer! just noticed a big old crack on the case. Going to contact CCG to let them know. Any advice for dealing with this vendor?

    Edit: and the rolling tray from the kit was missing.

    I've messaged the seller. Hopefully it goes well!

    Seller "golden2017" continues to jerk me around. Almost endless delays in shipping, up to the point I put in a complaint for refund, at which point he suddenly "shipped it yesterday..." followed 4 days later by a tracking number. Yesterday, a very large, very empty DHL plastic envelope arrived, stuffed in the PO box by puzzled USPS employees who attached a note wondering if something had fallen out of the empty envelope possibly? No holes in the well sealed envelope though. I've given then 24 hours to photograph the actual pipe they are theoretically going to send me, with my name on a piece of paper next to it (so I know it's not a stock photo), or I file another refund complaint. Also, their name gets a well deserved place in the "Bad Seller" list that they don't know about yet! Just a multitude of glittering prizes for them. ;)

    Seller "glassmr" packaged a BEAUTIFUL work of glass art in a single layer of bubble wrap, then stuffed it into an old re-used cardboard box with barely adequate taping. Arrived Friday thoroughly broken, with glass shards spilling out of the cardboard box holes, as expected considering the shipping packaging. No communication from him since. I cannot recommend this seller at ALL.


    Let's keep adding to this list, and help it grow! Please post about your DhGate experience, and I'll keep this list updated! :)


    I now have an even 20 pipes ordered from DHGate. Now 2 confirmed scams, 1 of those scams refunded (by DHGate), 1 pipe received broken, and 10 beautiful pipes received in perfect condition! Not too bad so far... DHGate and some of the sellers there have some issues, but overall I'm satisfied.

    Thanx brother for putting together the comprehensive list. At least when people are looking for a new inexpensive glass piece & or accessory they can avoid a lot of bullshit & hassle. :rockon:

    You are very welcome!
    It's a worthwhile thing to do with some of my spare time, while engaging in my favorite collecting hobby. Feels good to help others not get scammed! :)

    @ataxian,

    Not where I live... unless I get really excited about the possibility of receiving free room and board at the rebar hotel! :D

    Perhaps someday I will live somewhere a bit more "Civilized". ;)

    My most cherished and awaited pipe, the pipe I ordered from seller "smokingdogo" arrived yesterday. It is the tree-perc yellow chicken pipe shown on post 1 of this thread. It is absolutely perfect and unbroken, since it was actually packaged properly! Unfortunately, the HUGE amount of total BS, argument, proposals for refund and re-shipment, and the overall frustration, aggravation, and exhaustion of dealing with this seller FAR outweighs the good of the final result. Welcome to the "Problem Sellers" list, guys... a position you've solidly earned by turning a simple straightforward sale into a marathon of unstocked salesgoods, lies, fuckups and delays. Outstanding! :D

    Seller "golden2017" moves to the "Bad Sellers" list, after admitting they don't actually have the pipe they sold me, and accepting my refund proposal. I knocked $3 off the refund price and told them I was thinking about buying another pipe of theirs to kind of "entice" them to accept the offer and get some cash back. It worked... I scammed the scammers into getting at least some of my money back. Corrupt bitches... Nobody who ships me an empty envelope is going to get anything but a "Bad Seller" rating on this list, no matter how much they try to back peddle and make excuses for the inexcuseable. :(

    Still no communication of any kind from seller "glassmr", who packaged a BEAUTIFUL work of glass art in a single layer of bubble wrap, then stuffed it into an old re-used cardboard box with barely adequate taping. Hey... I tried for days, but he seems to be genuinely uninterested in resolving the problem he caused, so on the "Bad Seller" list he stays.

Now 3 confirmed scams, 2 of those scams refunded (1 by DHGate, 1 by seller), 1 pipe received broken, and 12 beautiful pipes received in perfect condition!

    Just recieved 2 new pieces from DHGate

    Seller - KivisDream (store is called Glass Bong Shop)

    Ordered Nov 4, delivered Nov 16th to Toronto, Canada.

    Packaged individually, and arrived in perfect condition with all accessories.

    I choose KivisDream based on price - the shop has a number of items available at a great price point

    ataxian,
    It was actually another forum member who said that "kathy057" has slipped in service and been making mistakes lately. I have not yet personally ordered from that seller.

    Seller "justdoit66" refunded my money, after claiming that the package was "returned by customs" after more than 3 weeks of the tracking number never "going live" and showing any signs of being real. This was the 2nd time they claimed customs problems, the first time I actually got a tracking number that worked... but the package went back to the seller after 2 weeks... then he argued that it didn't until being proven wrong! They now refuse to re-ship the pipe... which is more than a bit suspicious. I'm glad they refunded my money, but I suspect there probably never was a physical pipe in the picture anywhere... ;)

    For small accessories (adapters for example) I always had (3 orders) good experiences with the seller "driptips". Extra fast shipping via RoyalMail, cheap price & ok for single pieces.
    Good experience (but only one order for now) with "justdoit66", listed as bad seller though. Maybe I was lucky. (There are many sellers with similar or very similar names).
