    I ordered one hundred dollars worth of parts from ampwares.com and
    after a week I didnt receive my parts. I looked at my bank account and
    my bank account wasnt debited for the order. Thinking they might have
    missed something I emailed ampwares. com and told them that my bank
    account wasnt debited for the order and I havent received my parts.
    The next day my account was debited so I thought that they would send
    the parts. After a week I still didnt receive the parts so, I tried to
    call but they dont answer their phone and their voice mail is full. I
    emailed them again and told them that my account was debited but I
    didnt receive the parts. I havent received any reply after several
    emails and phone calls. I have now turned it over to the Pennsylvania
    attourney general, I am hoping they bring ampwares.com up on fraud
    charges. If you have been ripped off by ampwares.com go to
    http://www.attorneygeneral.gov/ppd/bcp/compform/bcpform.cfm and file
    a complaint with the attourney general. If you havent ordered from
    ampwares.com dont. If you doubt me go to their website email them and
    see if you get a reply or phone them and see who you get.

    Normal shipping is 10-14 days. Some vendors are faster, some
    a little slower. Quit whining and wait a while before
    sicking the dogs on them...

    Sometimes it can take about 10 to 20 days to get delivery. When you call in
    to a busy place, the service rep has to find your order and decipher what is
    going on with it. They are probably processing hundreds of orders per day.

    I have ordered parts from all over, and had the same thing. The suppliers
    will take their money and also require confirmation that they are paid
    before they will even ship out, or place the order to their suppliers.

    I have seen an order take about 30 days before I received it.

    UPS ground is 5 business days or less from anywhere in the lower 48 to
    anywhere in the lower 58. From PA to most of the country it's only 3.

    14 days to get an in-stock product out the door is completely absurd.
    Especially for small and mid-sized companies. (If buy.com can get a DVD
    player to my door in 3 days for free, any company should be able to ship
    just as fast, because there are few corporations on earth that have the
    number of different products, the global customer base, and order volume
    that buy.com does.)

    If I hadn't received notice of shipping 14 days after ordering, and
    hadn't been able to contact a rep at the company, (AND ESPECIALLY if my
    account had already been debited)...I would certainly contact the BBB
    and my attorney general.

    Just because some people are lazy and stupid doesn't mean the rest of us
    should have to suffer.

    Of course, I would also *never* order from a website that looked like
    ampwares.com, ie. built in MS FrontPage by a 12 year old who has a
    penchant for garish colors, clip art GIFs, and blinking text.
     
  6. That's not legal in some cases. Transferring funds before shipping
    violates the policies of all major credit cards and electronic payment
    services. Merchants are to perform an "authorization" to guarantee
    future payment, ship the product, then perform a "deposit" of their
    authorized amount. This two stage procedure makes sure that neither the
    merchant nor the customer looses money. Call your CC company and the
    problem will get fixed quickly. Merchants will be denied payment if
    they don't comply with the rules.

    Not to mention this misspelling on the first page of the website:

    "Orderes place using ..."

    Sounds like he used a debit card or something. Not sure if the protections
    are the same as with a CC.
     
  9. My experience and the maps in UPS shipping places that I see say a
    little longer to ship from Philadelphia to anywhere. Worst is parts of
    California other than near LA or SF, which is 6 business days.
    It takes 4 business days to get UPS Ground from Digi-Key (Thief River
    Falls, MN) to me. I often order 2-day shipping because of this.

    When ordering for the first time, ask how long it normally takes them to
    ship. Most but not all places ship the same day/next day. It appears to
    me that some places ship weekly or biweekly, but sometimes some of these
    places will get your order out the next day if you ask or if you pay extra
    for more urgent shipping.
