I'll admit it's certainly dodgy that they won't admit it's the same company - osCommerce is a fairly widely used e-store system, but those two websites are exactly the same. and as you said, they use the same contact details.

However, could it have just been a miscommunication? Or maybe the customer support person you spoke to wasn't aware of the other store that seems like it caters to non-nz customers whereas the .co.nz one does?

But yeah - if you're sufficiently worried about it, then I wouldn't do it. Probably safer to pay an extra few dollars and get it from somewhere else.

Good! I learned from that video that paypal is not safe for sellers. But in this case I am the buyer so I have no worries anymore... :)

Exactly willnz. But I dont think it was a miscommunication. I asked a simple question and they answered shortly. And they have similar stores all over : www.etamiya.com, www.walkera.co.za, etc

Meanwhile I took peejayw's advice and googled a bit and found these forum topics about them:
www.rcuniverse.com forum

another one


I found out that from 10 people 7-8 had problems with them: damaged products, long delivery, wrong products, etc.

After all I do not recommend to anybody to buy anything from ehirobo or walkera.co.nz.

I found the best website: www.miracle-mart.com
They are looking much more professional than the others, they are based in Hong Kong too.
