    Hi, I ordered a PSP off Movietyme this morning after reccomendations on here, and the email sent to me straightaway is:

    "Thank you for shopping at www.movietyme.com

    Please find enclosed in this email receipt the details
    of your order placed at www.movietyme.com

    Please note that all orders are shipped from either our
    LA or Philadelphia locations, as such please allow 7-14
    business days for delivery."

    Does that mean the PSP is definately coming from America? I've heard people getting them within 1-2 days... how?

    What happens if it gets hit with a Customs Bill? Do they demand money there and then when its delivered or just give you an invoice to send the money to?

    I paid for Special Delivery, does that mean it'll first be sent from the US office to the UK and then sent out from them Special Delivery to me, so that I don;t pay customs charges?

    Thanks in advance for your time!

    Dave

    delete this. Movietyme prob have security feature 2 stop others reading personal data

    quote from movietyme FAQ sec: '...such as Special delivery - please see the shipping options on the order screen'


    import tax about £8.

    Oh, you will prob/def get a NA PSP. You can still buy UK games, but not movies. You have to get US UMD films

    get this for service from Amazon.co.uk

    ordered 512mb MS on 31st July, Sunday. Of course, I don't expect anyone working on a Sun, so I wait till Mon. Oh, I chose free del, expect 2 week wait

    But nothing till Tue; it says dispatch from Florida.

    Arrived Saturday morning 9.15 am, today on 6th Aug.

    6 days from Florida to Manchester. 5 days, since it came on Sat morn. I reckon it came on Fri.

    Oh, for those getting UK PSP, play.com have UMD films from £15-£20 inc del

    Its always worth checking what Movietyme have in their 'Next Day Dispatch' section as anything from there will arrive the next day, the majority of other items are sent from the US to somewhere inside the UK and then from there they are sent on to you so you dont have to worry about customs but if they dont have any PSPs instock inside the UK you are in for about a week wait.

    Just select 'Same Day Dispatch' from the Category drop down box.

    Ordered my PSP on Friday, but the status of it is still 'order taken', although after sending a PM to MovietymeCraig on Sunday, he replied that it was already on the move, that I would be billed Monday (I have) and I would have it Wednesday.

    Is this still possible, or will it not happen before the order status changes on the MovieTyme site?

    Dont pay any attention to what it states in your account, I have 8 items still listed as 'Order Taken' even though I have recieved every single one of them and in some case quite afew months ago including a PSP which I picked up in person back in April.
