Ordered an item from Kitlinx on Tuesday. It was listed as "One in stock ships immediately".

An hour after ordering one reappeared in stock stating again, " ships immediately ". 

After a two-day wait for a notice of shipping, I inquired as to the shipping.......... I was told

my order would ship " next week". So I gather their claim as it being in stock was false and

that it would ship immediately was deliberately misleading. No way to do business.

Thank you for the heads up, in Today's market is so saturated that there's no need to waste time with dishonest retailers. My ignore list is long-lasting proof of it. :)

PS: they will probably blame it on Covid crisis 🤦‍♂️

Sad but true and like Martin, I keep notes on who to buy from and who not. I most likely buy 95% of my kits and AM from three vendors, who service and operation are first class and very quick. 

Thanks for the heads up

Keep 'em comin

Happening everywhere. I buy something on Amazon with Prime. Use to be here in two days.  Now I’m lucky if it ships out in two days. 
 

Wife told me (in the 11th hour) to order some really nice water shoes for a cruise we were going on last week.   So I look them up online and it says 2 day shipping.  Not a problem. It’s Monday morning, leaving the following Sunday morning.   B@$**#ds didn’t ship them until Friday and the delivered them to my house when I was in the middle of the Caribbean Sea.  :wallbash:

Never buy from Kitlinx.  I ordered two Taurus resin engines from them - shown in stock, shown shipped, but weren't in the box that arrived.  I emailed Kitlinx multiple times, including Loic the owner himself, and never heard back from them.  They essentially stole close to $100 from me.

Now I'm being told that the item was in stock at their other store and it should take

A day to get to the main store (I texted Loic ) I asked if he could ship me direct from the other store. No reply. I now have an estimated arrival date of June 19. We'll see.

It's been over a week and the item listed as being " one in stock for immediate shipment "

Hasn't been shipped yet. I find that items listed that way are just not in stock.

In fact, don't trust anything as being in stock from this seller. I've emailed them and

Texted loic. no more replies.

Update: after many emails and texts they now claim it's been shipped today. My

Guess is that they simply created a shipping label to shut me up. We shall see. If

All is kosher, fine, but I'll never do business with them again. Incidentally I emailed

A different site that lists many kits that are not available anywhere else (mostly Takom)

If they could verify that the item I wanted was in stock. They did not answer my email.

I tried ordering a kit from them over a year ago that they listed as in stock .....it wasn't so

I canceled the order. I won't give the outfits name....I'll try calling them.. But honestly, I think it's another trick.

After all this trouble, UPS.....the outfit I always have trouble with... Said the delivery

attempt.... "Failed" and I'll have to wait some more. This always happens on Friday

afternoons or if the delivery time coincides with the driver's lunchbreak. This has

Happened 3 times and I've always been at home during the "attempt". One time, they

delivered my package to a neighboring apartment building; A package with a $160.00

model in it. Fortunately, the building's manager discovered the mistake and brought it to me. We'll see what happens to this, and the two other packages that they were supposed

to deliver. The last time, I had to drive to a CVS pharmacy to pick up packages that were

supposed to be delivered on a friday.... Friday the 13 it turns out.... I had to go the next day and the following Monday....two trips.... To pick up packages that I paid to have

delivered to my home! When I picked up first package, the girl at CVS stated " we get a lot

of this with Friday deliveries ", and seemed to know who the deliverer might be! I used

to think FedEx sucked, now I have a better opinion of them, no problems lately. The postal service,....no problem. It's UPS that is setting new standards of shoddy service

and laziness in their deliveries. I wish you luck with them, I have had nothing but problems lately with them!
