    I've always used Mastercard. No issues.

    I don't think you got ripped off. My orders seemed stuck for a little while too, but they came eventually. Just be patient, I'm sure they'll be on the way soon.

    They don't take Visa, if that's what you tried to pay with. I know it says they do but they don't.

    Since then I’ve only been using True North Seed Bank (TNSB), I really like the search engines and seeing how much variety it has. it’s actually fun going through it and making a cart up

    Sounds like their website was spoofed. I'm a fan of Greybeards. Deliver in about 4-7 days, US based, free seeds in every order. No bullshit.

    Sorry to hear about your experience.
    I've purchased seeds from seedsman 4 times this year. Never had an issue using my card to pay, always went through. Yes, it takes way longer than it should to get the package but mine have always come (with a bunch of freebies seeds). The last time I ordered my package came in 22 days from ordering. Ive always paid for the extra insurance and discreet packaging. They put them in a box wrapped in birthday wrapping paper.

    i had similar issues with trying to pay at Seedsman, great variety but terrible trying to pay. I would be interested to hear which seedbank your now using. I have used White Widow and they have been good but limited strains.

    I had a similar experience, I tried several cards to pay for my order, but most wouldn’t work (I live in a legal country, so I assumed I wouldn’t need the Bitcoin option)

    I reached out to them and asked how I could go through payment, and they replied with “if credit card doesn’t work, then you can use bitcoin (which I had to accumulate over a month to have enough) or send cash”, neither I’m comfortable with.

    I tried again with another card, and when it did go through, the next day I found my bank stopped the transaction and I had to cancel my card and replace it. Apparently my bank has them labeled as a scam.
    long story short, I spent several days trying to pay them and ended up having to deal with the bank etc. It was a nightmare.

    sidenote: after that, I tried another site that was very reputable. I payed in 2 minutes, next day it sent, and they had my seeds to me in 2 weeks. No stress, no hassle. Freebies and even some pamphlets. I’ve stayed with them ever since and never had issues.

    What I Learned:
    always research the good/bad before shopping, even if many say it’s great, and try a small/cheap order first incase it isn’t legit, then the lose isn’t so painful.

    plenty of other reputable companies to go through, why risk if it seems 50% legit and 50% scam? Not worth it for the freebies they offer when it’s 50% good.

    I have never done business with Seedsman but I have only heard good things about them. You do not say how long this has been going on for you. I last purchased seeds from Herbies. They took quite a long time to deliver but the pandemic was also new then. The product did eventually arrive as promised and I am quite satisfied. I doubt this is a scam but they are operating on their schedule not yours. Next time, try splitting your order between companies.

    I've paid them through Chinese and Italian based banks mostly but other countries as well, it doesn't matter how shady it seems, the seeds always arrive. There are lots of growers in Italy, It's well known that their shipping times aren't the fastest and oftentimes delays do happen. It's not a scam and I don't believe you were ripped off.

    Sorry to hear that man. I know they have been having some delays but people usually have been finding a few extra goodies in the package when it finally does arrive. Many of these companies use other business names and banks in other countries to conduct transactions. This is due to the grey area that seed sales exist in. I really hope that with patience, they come through for you.

    The seedsman.com seedbank is now a SCAM

    I got scammed by an apparently reliable company who sells cannabis seeds. It turned out to be a scam only recently that's why it is VERY dangerous! The insurance company of the bank that issued my credit card is currently investigating the issue. At the bank they are quite sure there is something suspicious since the money went directly to a chinese account and that is very unusual for a company from Barcelona-Spain. This "company" uses the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse for "delays" that already mention on their website so you think that waiting for months is something normal. You place the order, you pay, they give you a tracking number and you never receive the seeds. There is also a fake delivery insurance that persuades experience users like me to purchase anyway after reading negative feedback along with positive feedback since the company has not always been a scam! With that being said they also have a customer support center that tries to keep you calm and answers your queries so you don't submit negative feedback immediately. They also made laugh of me with a very clever way after studying my reviews on trustpilot. Since I posted another review in italian language they posted a fake review from the country I ordered (probably using vpn) using the nickname Furiozo which means "angry" in italian! PLEASE DON'T GO THERE! This is my review on trustpilot along with the tracking number: https://uk.trustpilot.com/reviews/5f...5dc1032c0c1498
