I’m kinda surprised to see such a feedback left for you and your son, James.

Just realized how much time has elapsed since dealing with you guys. That your
son would have grown-up and may no longer be a part of the running of your store.
Time does seem to vanish before our eyes, when considering our kids

  I know what a fantastic store you guys operate. One of the better ones, with
your top notch service and care. I hope the other member will reconsider. Until
then, and in addressing your question:

- Go to your Profile in Feedback Forum by clicking-on your feedback number

- At the bottom of the page you’ll see “If you are McBricks, you may Reply to
comments” the word “Reply” is the link you need. Exampled in screenshot below…

Thanks yes that is correct.

I’ve now been able to view my checkout flow using my wife’s account.

I have 4 shipping methods set up, and enabled, but only two show at checkout
(the most expensive only)

Why aren’t all 4 available?

Also I have enabled request quote but that isn’t showing either.

Help appreciated! Thanks

No. Note that users opt in to receive notifications.

Well its easy enough but no one has done it, also no employee interaction on
forum for a week or two now, BL email account full not taking more messages,
Are we adrift without a direction? Has anyone had recent direct contact? seems
to be a bit strange.

Exactly.
But that was Dan's code and it's probably rocket science to them, considering
they didn't manage to prevent their own store from getting suspended due
to NSS procedures (is that right? I read it on the forum, but didn't confirm
it. Sounds hilarious anyway)

  Hello,
I have ordered 2 sets of a special AFOL edition from BrickLinkCorp. Unfortunately
only one has arrived, and I tried to contact BrickLink on all channels here,
then filed a non-shipping alert, but since received no response. Now I could
cancel, but unsure whether I'd receive a payback, and also much rather resolve
the issue and get the 2nd box, even so delayed.
Can anyone assist on how to chase BrickLinkCorp?
Thanks,
David

Did you buy them at the same time? If not, the second one might arrive later.
It appears BL sends each box separately


Hi,

yes, same time, same order ID

The shop is closed because "Reason: Three or more Completed NSS/NRS". Technically,
to get an NSS removed the shop owner needs to provide proof of shipping to BrickLink.
Assuming they keep records of their own shipment info, that is easy enough to
do for themselves. The help pages are not clear on whether BrickLink can be asked
to remove an NRS, so the shop might be closed because of too many NRS issues.

Niek.

Try to get familiar with paypal.me

Then you can simply include a link in your invoice that for the payment (also
including the amount that should be payed), something like:

https://www.paypal.me/yourname/29.82

... or for your invoice template: https://www.paypal.me/yourname/DISPGRANDTOTAL

(the DISPGRANDTOTAL needs to be in pointed brackets)

Thanks both.

I was concerned about a second account from same IP address raising a concern
from “management” my son is over 18. So I’ll get him to sign on.

Have a friend sign up or parents or "do it for them" so you can check out your
own store that way and try things out. My father-in-law is a member so I ask
him to try certain things out for me or I do it when I visit him.

Significant others can also setup an account (or anyone in the household 18+)
and you can check with them, or temporarily borrow the account for testing.

I think you can send proof to Admin of the refund and they will remove the NSS.
Maybe this emailaddress can be found in the problem part of the order.

Looks like the buyer finally removed the NSS and submitted an order cancel request.
Things are right with the world again. Thanks everyone!

Always reply to the NSS in the applicable Problem field of the NSS.
Your buyer should close the NSS.

Someone from Bricklink is now going to talk to Fedex and investigate how they’re
filling in the customs forms but there’s still no admission of a mistake / any
responsibility which is what is bothering me the most.

I await a reply from both, but I'm not holding my breath.

They left the cost of shipping blank (not 0, not a broken out proportion of the
total order cost, blank) which causes European countries to apply ‘average shipping
costs’ to the duty calculation. In the case of the Wild West set this is actually
more than the cost of the set itself. There is now no way to resolve this.

Having communicated with Bricklink they simply don’t care. They messed up but
are unwilling to even admit that.

I’m not considering cancelling my Castle order because presumably they’ll mess
it up again costing me a not insignificant amount of money (again).

Pretty disgraceful to be honest.

More seriously, it’s about the Season 3 of Ninjago, called “Rebooted”.
LEGO changes the minifigs for each season (and then some) and the name of the
season is used to describe which is which. It helps to have it in the name for
quick searching and seeing the differences.

Thanks - I’ll have a look but they didn’t tell me that and it looks like a business
form to me...

They left the cost of shipping blank (not 0, not a broken out proportion of the
total order cost, blank) which causes European countries to apply ‘average shipping
costs’ to the duty calculation. In the case of the Wild West set this is actually
more than the cost of the set itself. There is now no way to resolve this.

Having communicated with Bricklink they simply don’t care. They messed up but
are unwilling to even admit that.

I’m not considering cancelling my Castle order because presumably they’ll mess
it up again costing me a not insignificant amount of money (again).

Pretty disgraceful to be honest.

  Yeah. Fakes of this one are on ali express.

These types of hairpieces are sometimes difficult but the torso and legs should
have been obvious.

Thank you everyone. I thought so but appreciate everyone’s time. I checked all
my other items from the same seller this morning and this was the only one. Obviously
this is good news but a shame I have to let the buyer down. Thanks again everyone.

The buyer is correct. It's a clone.

  Hi,

Why don’t you show us the picture anyway?
At this moment I do not have the minifig but I had a few so with a picture I,
or someone else, can help you.
These minifigures are a bit more difficult due to different use of materials
and od shapes.

  Hi

I recently sold a Davey Jones figure, the buyer has received the figure and believes
it to be fake. I have no reason to disbelieve the buyer, he has plenty of feedback
and has been extremely reasonable throughout but I checked where I got the figure
from when I purchased it some time ago and don’t believe that seller is selling
fakes.

I was wondering whether anyone on the forum might have the same figure to hand
and therefore might be willing to compare the image I have with the one the buyer
has sent. If so I would be very grateful if you could get in touch with me.

I would really appreciate your help with this!

Thank you,
Gary

Hi Gary,

I think your buyer might be right.
I do not see the word ‘Lego’ on the stud of the torso, also not on the legs that
also look different in color and slightly different appearance.
The hat doesn’t seems to show a Lego trademark but this is more difficult to
see.
So, in my opinion this is a fake.
That is quite a loss.

  Hello,
I have ordered 2 sets of a special AFOL edition from BrickLinkCorp. Unfortunately
only one has arrived, and I tried to contact BrickLink on all channels here,
then filed a non-shipping alert, but since received no response. Now I could
cancel, but unsure whether I'd receive a payback, and also much rather resolve
the issue and get the 2nd box, even so delayed.
Can anyone assist on how to chase BrickLinkCorp?
Thanks,
David

Did you buy them at the same time? If not, the second one might arrive later.
It appears BL sends each box separately

  Hello,

As a seller my custimers kan pay by PayPal. But i also want the option for them
to pay by iban/banktrasfer.

Where can i find the option menu to changes this? Its not on my payment page??

Anyone can explain me how this works?

Mvg Guido.

Since some years, you have to ask permission from the Bricklink administration
to get these options. I believe you need to have some kind of good feedback reputation
in order to get it. Not sure if that really solved any kind of problem, but at
least it's not completely removed for new sellers like they once planned
to do.
