Anyone buy from HoneyColor.com?

I specifically bought toric lenses from this website and I'm hoping they'll come soon.
My order was July 15 and they said 3-4 weeks processing to make my prescription.
Have any of you ordered here? Was it a good or bad experience?

I tried contacting them and all they sent was an email saying they had a high level of inquiries and will write the response in my package or something.

I have not personally bought from there, but a number of people on here have. I do not recall anyone mentioning anything negative besides a backup in orders around Halloween or sales and obviously being based in Malaysia, shipping to the States takes time, which a number of people have commented on.

However, let us break down the situation. Toric lenses are custom made and they gave you a 3-4 week production time estimate. Let us err toward the 4 week mark which would mean the lenses would be manufactured by August 13th at the latest if they stick to their 3-4 week production schedule.

Now consider shipping: If you used standard postage, that could be another 2+ weeks. Expedited shipping can be 1 week, but even then it can sit in customs for a few days too.

So, theoretically that puts you at about 6 weeks from purchase to arrival [for standard shipping]. Re: possible arrival sometime during the last week of August [or a week earlier if you used expedited shipping]. Again, these are just estimates, but 4 weeks have not yet passed since you placed the order.

I would see what they say when they write back and be on the lookout for your parcel the 18th onward [taking into consideration the kind of shipping you opted to use]. You have until the 29th to file a claim in Paypal if something goes amiss and your credit card company has a longer timeframe than that so do know that you are covered. Hope this helps put things into perspective and good luck!

I've ordered from HoneyColor several times and never had any issues. Some of my friends have ordered from them too and no problems either.
