This has to be the worst store I've ever experience. Follow the link to read what me and others think about them. Why Painball-online is the worst pb company ever.

G3PB: 10
The best store I've used. Their service is fast and friendly. Best of all they have some of lowest prices and widest selection of gun upgrades.

Exclamation Took me awhile, please give it a read.

Ok, I did some searching, using Jaster's Thread, as a guide I have tried to compile a list of stores, and reasons why they should be avoided. This means that I have had personal experiences myself, or two (or more) people have had bad experiences with the store. Enjoy and beware!

Alot of sites that got low grades aren't here because they reasons for the bad experience seemed to be lack of patience on both sides/poor time management.
The symbol (insert name) Signifies the encased name is not a member on PBReview.com, but someone I personally know.


(1) paintballerz.com References: taylorjames

Experience Level (lower% is not good):16%
Reasoning:
taylorjames:
Where do I begin, well first I order my item (Dye Hybrid Pants '04, referred to in this thread as #TJ), and it seems legit, I am able to use Paypal, nice plus. Well Iget a confirmation letter on X-mas Eve 2003 saying Payment arrived. Ok, fast forward 2 weeks, no packeage has come. I call the company, no answer on either line. So I go to leave a message and the answering machine is full. Anyways after another 2 weeks of calling twice a day I finally get through. This time the person on the line tells me that the item never got shipped to them because Dye has not manufactured it yet. Bold move by him, I knew the item was made because my local shop was selling them already and my friend owned a pair. So he responds saying, "Oh, I meant out of stock sorry". Sure you are buddy. Anyways he says wait a week and the item will arrive, it has been a week and a half since that conversation and every day grows closer to 2 months from time of confirmed payment. Perhaps the most horrific buying experience I have dealt with in any situation online, in person, through a catalog, ever.


(2) 888paintball.com References: Kraus,s0m37h1n9,huntsty

Experience Level:40%
Reasoning:
Kraus: Poor customer service led to an item being cancelled and playing without an item player hoped to have, a big-time let down.

som37h1n9: Navigation was rather difficult for a store. Did not honor coupons or system of price matching. Lost money in transaction, and stated "..Two or three purchases so far, but the latest one will probably be my last."(s0m37h1n9)

huntsty: Received wrong size C02 tank, and made of different material. No refund or return honored, just shipped same, wrong tank back. I was there for this event, it has kept me away from them.

(3) eBay.com References: taylorjames,huntsty,(Brendan)

Experience Level:61%, not a failing average, but close.
Reasoning:
taylorjames: Purchased a "Brand-New" System X Vengeance Pro 2.0 2003 Edition from this seller and well, it wasn't brand-new. First off, he removed the Barrel and Drop-Forward from the package. He also took the System X Tacky Grips off the Swing frame and replaced with Dye Panel Grips. He falsely advertised the marker, and started an experience with a manufacturere that would never get better. Seller's ID on eBay.com is robrobii

huntsty: Purchased an WGP Orr-acle that wasn't so well kept for being factory sealed, which it wasn't. Seller lost account on eBay, but still shouldn't have lost buyer at least $200 in repairs to a battered marker.

(Brendan): Perhaps the worst of it all. Purchased a Brand New ANS Gen-X 3 that came with parts not even by the same manufacturer, including but not limited to,
ANS Hinge Frame swapped/replaced for System X Swing Frame
ANS Stock Cocking Rod swapped/replaced for WGP Stock Cocking ROd
ANS Gen-X 3 Regulator swapped/replaced for WGP Ergo Regulator
Sorry, cannot find seller's ID at the time, if He or I do, expect it here in bold.

(4) paintballclassifieds.com References: (Brendan)

Experience Level: 21%
Reasoning:
(Brendan): Some bogus person in Utah and (Brendan) did a same-day ship trade through this website. Well (Brendan) sent his ANS Gen-X 3 for what was supposed to be a WGP E-Orracle. Instead the other trader decides to be sneaky and sends a 32 Degrees Rebel and a Viewloader Genesis. (Brendan) was ripped extremely bad, by a classifieds website that should screen its sellers or provide some protection or ratings system for sellers to warn potential buyers. Sort of like the feedback system used on a forum.(e.g. PBReview.com,Pbnation.com)

Maybe you guys can help me with this. I ordered a cp 1 piece from shootpaint.com 16 days ago, and still haven't gotten a confirmation e-mail. They said that they were out of the color I asked for (which wasn't mentioned on the page, only after I placed the order) and that it would come in with the next cp shipment in 4 or 5 days (after I bought the item). Also, if I wanted I could get the barrel in black (which I changed my mind and prefered) and he would send me the confirmation e-mail that day.

I responded that I wanted to do that, and it's been 10 days w/o a response. Twice I've inquired as to what's wrong, and no response.

My question is this: since I haven't paid him yet, and since he's taking so long and the customer service sucks, should I (and can I legally) just buy it somewhere else and forget about getting it at shootpaint.com?

Same problem here except it's for a CP 2 piece and I have already paid.

As long as you haven't paid you can go ahead and buy somewhere else. IF they get mad just say that they weren't responding to emails and you took your business elsewhere.

1) The site is easy to guide through and but the organization is only fair.
2) Good, but not the best.
3) I bought the Spyder Rodeo Package deal with a 20 oz tank and a V-Force Shield Goggle. I recieved an E-99 Avant but was only charged $115 for the Rodeo.
4) Shipping seemed steep. It was 11 for Ground Shipping on UPS and 38 for next Day Air. Maybe because they were in PA and I'm in AZ. Nonetheless, my order took a full week to be at my doorstep.
5) I received a confirmation e-mail the next morning after I ordered.
6) I ordered a Spyder Rodeo from them and Recieved an E-99 Avant. Sweet deal.
7) Yes, because their prices are fair and they have a wide selection.
8) 8

Thumbs down Update on paintballerz.com

From recorded answering machine:
Thank you for calling paintballerz inc. from MOnday Feb. 16th-Feb. 20th. The customer service/help will be down for a scheduled system upgrade to "accomodate for the overwhelming response", the shipping department is still running orders though. How convenient after a weak on not checking messages or erasing them for that matter or pikcing up the phone, their CS goes down. THis site is BS to the fullextent. I have talked it over with my parents and if the item is not received, we will probably press charges because we won't let them get away with ripping me for $100 (rounded from $92.73) It is not fair or just. So any paintballerz.com affiliates out there, let your boys know, I am not taking this sitting down.

Shootpaint.com Review

Well, after searching around and seeing some recommendations from a bunch of people I decided to order my CP 2 piece from them. So here's the story of my ordeal with them:

I first emailed tham about their address so I could send them an MO. Took 2 weeks for them to respond.
I promtly sent out my MO the next day and that's the last I have heard from them. I got the MO on 1/13 and I've emailed multiple times with no response. Their order tracking is not working on the site and will never buy from them again.
0/10 because I have not talked to or heard from them about anything concerning my order.

1) Tell about the site itself - web site, ease of getting through the site, payment types allowed, ect.
2) prices of equipment : expensive, cheap, fair, ect.
3) what you bought and what you got
4) shipping. Did it get to when they said it would?
5) customer service
6) personal comments (keep them clean!)
7) would buy there again? Why?
8) score 1 (worst) - 10 (best)


I would like to get this stickied if it works the way I'm thinking it will so please help out. Also if anyone thinks anything should be added or removed from the list of questions let me know. Lastly, please keep in mind that these are just opinions and personal experiences. Please don't flame if you disagree with something. Just post your opinions.
Thanks!!

OK here is the latest score of stores!

www.shop4paintball.com = 6
www.blackfootpaintball.com = 9
www.thepaintballstore = 8
www.actionvillage.com = 7
www.888paintball.com = 9
www.g3pb.com = 10
www.paintballondemand.com = 8
www.xpaintball.com = 6.9
www.countrypaintball.com = 9.5
www.firstcallpaintball.com = 9.8
www.skanline.com = 9
www.paintballkingdom.com = 9
www.paintballgateway.com = 6.3
www.paintballarmory.com = 7.5
www.blazepaintball.com = 4
[url[www.paintballexpress.com[/url] = 7
www.paintballonline.com = 5
www.xtremepaintball.com = 5
www.a-1paintballstore.com = 4
www.shootpaint.com = 10
www.kickasspaintball.com = 9.9
Time for an update on page 1 (or an update on the last page since most people probably stop looking at page 1). For the record, it's "CountyPaintball.com" not "Country". There's no "r" in there.

That's been asked many times. Andrew doesn't want to do that at thistime, so this is the closest we're going to get.
