[ Link Added] Has anyone even bought from this site?

i got as far as the " Enter your Credit Card Information" section and saw the site still wasnt secure I decided against it. Just wondering if anyone here has bought from them.

Do you really think we're dumb enough to click on your link?  If you're really asking about a questionable website, tell us what it is.  Otherwise stop wasting bandwith.

Wow...overreact much? relax. This isnt a fishing attempt. The site is called Plamodel and they have something I'd like to buy. Why do I want to buy it? Because it's cheaper there than anywhere else.

Just did a quick scan through that site.  They seem to have quite a bit of Micro-Mark labeled stuff at a lower price than Micro-Mark, not exactly sure how they can do that.  As an example they have the resin starter kit which Micro-Mark sells for around $90 marked at $65.99, but they are showing a msrp of $129.  Might be a bit leery about them.

I build models because I can't afford the real thing!

Your thread has been straying to and fro...you've been receiving some flak but it's not your fault!

I looked at the link you provided. Near the bottom is a box saying it is a "secured site" but I suspect the "security" is between their website and the credit card site.

Your browser says it is not a secured site, which suggests that your credit card info, when entered, is not secured during data entry on this site. So, you enter this data on an unsecured (according to your browser) site.

After you enter this data and it is sent for approval, that is probably done so under a secured interface (at least that's how I interpret it).

Although I've not looked into it, but does this site offer PayPal? That's another layer of security.

Ya thats one of the things that made me a little hesitant. I dont see how they can offer MM products that cheap. If they were a MM reseller the price would be the same as on the MM site. The thing I wanted to order is $25 bucks, but 2 and 3 times that on most other sites. zi think I'll pass.

I've checked around the site, they say they offer PayPal, but there's no option at checkout other than CC. I'll email them and ask about PP and post their reply
