Online store not accepting Paypal, trust worthy?

I'm ordering some electronics online, and these guys have very quick responds,
and are from Hong Kong, selling Made In China Products/electronics.

they offer Paypal, western union, HSBC wire transfer payment listed on their website.....

however, when i checked out w/ Paypal, it gave me this error msg:

We cannot process this transaction because there is a problem with the PayPal email address supplied by the seller. Please contact the seller to resolve the problem. If this payment is for an eBay listing, you can contact the seller via the "Ask Seller a Question" link on the listing page. When you have the correct email address, payment can be made at www.paypal.com.

At this time, we are unable to process your request. Please return to and try another option


when i emailed to the CSR, they said they no longer accept Paypal, only accept western union and HSBC wire transfer payment only,
reason i used Paypal, cuz it's worryfree, and it's on my CC so that i can track and back charge if there are problems....and
that i can have an addditional 1 year warranty from my CC

can western union or HSBC wire transfer payment still protect my purchase?

please advise~

I'd avoid this one just in case. Anything western union scares the crap out of me.

Why do people constantly post crap like this without the name or link to the site they are talking about???

OP you honestly think paypal is any better........you try a chargeback and they threaten to close your account.

Most asian sellers only offer wire payments. Even in business dealings.


If you want paypal find another seller accepting paypal funds.

There are plenty of Asian sellers who will accept Paypal, or at the very least claim to.

Money transfers only?

No savings are worth the risk on that.

Posting the name of the site would have helped, but I wouldn't buy from them with those terms anyway.
Kaboom! Kaboom! KABOOM!
