    I bought a shirt. I talked to him via MSN beforehand. His service is actually very good. The shipping is understandably slow, as it is overseas, but I'm glad I got it, and the shipping was free so I'm not complaining. The price was also very good.

Although their business practice may be unethical, Im sure their products are still good and Mr Yu Hin Wong will deliver as promised. I paid thorough paypal. After making the payment, I realized that the buyer's protection is only applicable to ebay purchases only. I'm a little worried so I wanted to hear from anyone that has ordered from them. All comment/reply is appreciated.
    Did you end up getting your items?

    I got the shipment today. I am furious. I had to pay about $150 in custom/taxes. We had an agreement to ship this as a 'gift' with a declared value of $50 so we could avoid the taxes. Worst off, he told me he couldn't insure it for 1k if he is to declare $50. I figured if I am able to save on the taxes/duties, it was worth not purchasing the insurance. As it turns out, he shipped it with a declared value of 1k without insurance and disregarded our arrangment. Had the shipped got lost in transit, I would have lost everything!!! I have sent him an email for a resolution as this was clearly his mistake. I will let you guys know if he is willing to accept his own mistake.

    Wow that's TERRIBLE. He had nothing to lose while you had a lose/lose situation. You should seriously consider a dispute through PayPal or your credit card company if you used them.

    It was a matter of risk and reward. I figure saving $150 in taxes (15%) is worth the chance considering that hongkongpost only has about 2.5% insurance claim rate. But Damn, I was mighty pissed when I found out that he shipped it with a declared value of 1k and putting me in a no win situation. I'm sure Im not the only one on this forum that got hit with customs/taxes b/c of a shipping mistake made by badmintonshoponline.us. His communication are often very brief and very shady. I haven't had a chance to review the quality of the goods yet. I will post the quality of the goods and any follow up mail from Mr Wong.

    Here is what I would do for a large order.
    1) order from a known good dealer who is welling to work with you.
    2) break down the entire purchase into 2 or 3 shipments to avoid total loss.
    3) when in doubt, buy from someone else.

    Tax is 13%.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Mr Wong tripped up on his own words in his e-mail to me which is pretty hilarious. I do not remember what I asked, but he mentioned that he is not allowed to carry other coded rackets as he can get into trouble.

    Have a look on website, I see JP rackets being advertised on the website ROFL!

    Tax varies in Canada; the GST has been lowered to 6%, but PST remains the same, so in Ontario, it's still 8%, and BC is 7%. Seeing as the OP is from the GTA, I'm surprised that they got quoted for 15%....best of luck trying to get your money back...

    not trying to stir up any trouble. but gtabad i hope you did end up saving some $$. in general, unless you know what you are doing and who you are you dealing with, it is a risk to try to save a few $$ by going overseas. you will for sure lose the warranty that you would normally get by buying CD rackets.

    anyway, my take on this is that you took a risk and you lose.

    on the moral standpoint, what you have asked him is to do something illegal. trying to declare good of lower value when importing is technically tax evasion. sure, he did promise, and he didn't do it. but that's part of the risk of dealing with someone overseas, you were unlucky to have found a seller that didn't follow up on what he promised. but i don't think you have much avenue to complain as it is illegal act in the first place.

    in the future, avoid this dealer, which is what we have always suggested anyway.
