WGC Shop: PayPal?

I've read some good things about WGC, but their site says that they don't accept PayPal from Canada. Is there some way around this? I've tried to search the forums, but it only gave me more good reviews of their service. They have a few items I need(foregrip, cheap connectors, aimpoint mount) that nobody else has, so can anyone help me out?

I just bought a part from them for my scar and had no problem using paypal to pay for the item, so from my experience you shouldn't have a problem

I'm afraid the folks who came before you wrecked it.

You know the ones who said F-it, I'm ordering a JG Star Dragon super blaster, I don't care what ASC says guns in country are too expensive and I can't wait for XX years till I'm 18.

Then when as sure as anything their shit got found and seized by the CBSA instead of manning up and taking their lumps they decided to file a Paypal claim or pull a credit card charge back. Then they'd have a huge meltdown here and get banned.

It was happening at least once a day here for a while. That said I can recall the same as the fellow above, the order I did ran fine. Can't recall if it was a c-card or Paypal for me.

Thanks for the info!
I normally do my ordering through EBAirsoft, but lately I'm finding that they have less and less of things I need, or the quality of the parts is horrible-even for clones. They're also starting to piss me off with the shipping. I just put in my 6th $100+ order with them, and for the third time in a row I received a fake tracking number and some bullshit along the lines of "we will ship item [itemnumber] and [otheritemnumber], other item will ship after [bullshitreason]", I've decided to take my business elsewhere. WGC may charge pretty heavy for shipping, but with item prices being so low you're still saving money.

@Danke: I knew that was the case as soon as I saw the disclaimer on their site. To be honest, I don't blame them one bit.

Well I have an American PayPal, you could PM me and I could help you out. If not, just make one at the border and use the post office as the address

That's EXACTLY what happened. Padd, just e-mail them and see if you can work something out. I'm guessing that previous WGC customers who aren't complete dicks and chargeback are OK to use PP but shoot them an e-mail to see what can be done.

PS: I believe that a fair number of Asian airsoft retailers are not accepting PP from Canada because of the above scenario (I think they're requesting that you do wire transfer or they won't deal with you period, but the problem with that is the huge fees tacked onto it (I believe it's like $30+ to do wire transfer).

Maybe it depends on what you order from them. I used PayPal for my last shipment from WGC, but all I ordered were routine parts and accessories - nothing that would've bothered CBSA, had they opened the package.

Is it just me or is their web site super slow loading? I pay for some pretty zippy internet and it hurts loading their page. Just a side note.

I know that with EBAirsoft, they have certain items on their cart that I can't even buy(guns, metal body kits, etc) because I'm in Canada, and they have a list of countries they don't even ship to right in the item's description. I've sent a message to WGC suggesting that they do the same thing, hopefully I'll hear back from them after Chinese spring festival.

Thanks for the help everyone, now that I know I'm able to deal with them without a $50+ bank wire, I'll start giving them my money.

@TDH: It's the same way for me as well. I'd assumed it was my internet, but it's most likely their server. Either way, I'll wait an extra few seconds per page for the deals they have.

I always use Paypal when buying stuff from WGC, heck I just bought something a few days ago, went through fine. Everything I have bought from them so far have been just parts and accessories. Although, if you try buying a gun from them with Paypal, then they'll probably reject or refund.

I'm definitely NOT ordering a gun from anywhere out-of-country. I get small parts that aren't questionable, but that's as far as it goes.

Same as Stealthee, they're more or less my official supplier and even if they're sometime a bit slow to send the stuff I always get what I order.
