    How do you pay for the setting?

    Do you pay deposit and then rest of balance or do they have your goods so you just settle the bill after?

    I might get a cab and then do a simple open back ring when I am off my ban!

    I pay as they are finished setting.

    Like i pay After bidding on LS.

    Then when set i pay again.

    I'm sure there's a better system but I'm fine for now like that.

    You are so kind! That's cool but I want a round one..
    I took the plunge and asked about this:
    Screenshot_20190107-060458_WeChat.jpg
    She answered with a "sold" then sent me a little tutorial...lol. I send back a blushing face emoji and said 'new to wechat'. She sent me a little girl in a red dress dancing with a pot in her hand. This was getting funnier and funnier. I sent her this:
    Screenshot_20190105-085250_WeChat.jpg
    And she said '18000'...
    Too expensive so I sent her a wilting rose. I hope that means what I think it means. Haha.
    I'm encouraged to try again.

    @Seaglow That pendant is stunning! I loved that those ladies stopped you in the street. I'm picturing you in a black shirt with this green beacon shining out of your chest. Like a superhero.

    @Seaglow and @ChaiK are totally selling me on those scenic pendants!

    Thank goodness I don't wear chains well (get itchy!!!!) so I admire from afar and don't go down that rabbit hole!

    Lol they are lucky animals. I have both and I love my pixiu pendant set. But I've not received it yet. Maybe next week or end this week.

    I also just got the muna translucent pixiu. Will set as well.

    So these are the same thing, just a different perspective? They don't look the same at all...

    I'm fairly sure I'm being stupid here.
    Edit: OK, I googled them again and yes, I'm being stupid. LOL. Now I get it.

    Oh, everyone, she said she would take Paypal. She said she was trying to help by cutting costs.

    If you pay PayPal, you have to agree with her to pay the Paypal fees which is 4.5% or something like this and the exchange rate under PayPal, and you pay in USD.

    So happy. :kiss2:

    Really ? This will dramatically change my world if I too can pay by PayPal !
    What shop number is this ?
    Yes, 4.5% was the PayPal commission rate to be paid by customers, that shop 2 lady initially shared with me before being contradicted by shop 3 lady (called “the boss” by shop 2).

    She wants 34k RMB for this. I will give this one a miss for now. I want to see what the other two I bought are like first. Also, I have bought quite a bit last month and need to really set the other pieces.

    And this one, it is costly but can you see on the left and the right, at the edges the green is not that strong.
    Ok, I can pay more and get better one, if I am going to spend like this.

    Yes @mellowyellowgirl , the big boss is her, the one that you have circled, as I have understood too.
    However, for everything regarding invoices, special financial / shipping requests and arrangements, it is shop 3.
    And as per the style and most of all the last check-up photos sent, I have guessed that it is a “he” heading it.
    I suppose he acts as a middle manager.

    By the way, I am still missing shop 8 WeChat ID number : anyone has it ?
