By Hdfc netsafe, you mean a virtual credit card? Did you get a tracking id after the transaction? And when were you charged?

yes.
i got my tracking id after 2 days.

just after confirming purchase the card became unusable. the fund was put on hold. u can check it if u login to netsafe and click on all transactions. if your shows there as card in use and vendor as google devices you r good to go. also charged amount will be shown as 0. it takes more than 10 days to show the exact transaction amount

hope this helps

I got an email stating "Your order has been placed and you will be charged after shipping".
I read somewhere that a VCC doesnt work, but my order went through smoothly. Are there any chances of my order getting cancelled or the transaction is complete? I havent been charged yet, but i really hope the order doesnt get cancelled. Has anyone else used a VCC. Please help. Thanks in advance.

I had 1st ordered using EntroPay VCC on 30th Jan, the order got through, but on 4th Feb, I got 2 mails - 1 from play store and other from wallet - saying that the order was cancelled and my wallet account was temporarily suspended . Then I asked a friend in US to place the order and put the shipping address of HopShopGo. Google shipped it after 5 days

The device is awating customs clearence at Chennai airport.

This is my experience, people have reported success with HDFC Netsafe VCC though.

I have used EntroPay VCC with my home address 5 times to buy android apps with no problem at all. I guess for high value transactions they verify the address of the credit card. The only explanation i can come up with indian CC and HDFC Netsafe VCC having success is that google is not able to get the actual address, so they cannot say that the address is wrong (innocent until proven guilty) **speculating**.

entropay fails because the card is not in your name. its "entropay user" and you would have put your name in billing address. and not because of address verification. for apps google doesnt verify anything, so it works.

How many days did your nexus took to reach you? Did you use ppobox? How much did it cost?

Got My Nexus 4 finally
Guys,

Thank you very much to all of you on being with me on my journey to get Nexus4, Guiding and responding with patience for even a silly queries. Really thankful to all of you. Finlay the day come when I have Nexus with me and I'm loving this beauty. So thank you very much to all of you. It is literally impossible to hit Thank button for all of you so pardon me for that

So Here is the details

Forward service : Comgateway, Why? Below is the thought process.
- Address belongs to tax free zone
- Simple, No need of paypal or any other kind of verification. As many said it is same as HSG but I like this one as this offers freedom. It can accept any damn credit card AFAIK.
- Competitive shipping charges.
- Finally even HSG is powered by comGateway

Sequence of events
1) Place an order - 30Jan evening
2) Google baba blessed me with quick Shipping on 2nd Feb
3) Shipment at ComGateway (5th Feb)
4) Paid Shipping charges to Comgateway for Standard Shipping (7th feb)
5) Nexus 4 in my hand 18th Feb

Cost details
1) Device cost + Shipping charges - $363 (Rs 20149/-)
2) Shipping charges to comgateway is around $25 (Rs 1394/-)
3) Customs + other charges to FedEx for Bangalore delivery (Rs 800/-)
4) So total is Rs 22343/-
5) card involve here is ICICIBANK credit card. Never faced any issue anywhere while paying.

Why Standard Shipping :
While browsing through various posts, I got a feel that FedEx does not charge Octroi for whatever reason. I see many posts saying DHL charges Octroi on top of Customs. ComGateway uses FedEx for Standard shipping and DHL for express. I got my Box as is. No opening at Bangalore custom clearance. Bangalore custom charges 460/- + FedEx charges around 300 for Handling fees. I called them up to understand why I charged additional 300 and Answer come as paper work . Now I have no idea what is this paperwork is. Anyway it was a small amount and they gave prompt receipt for same. So no issues. BTW FedEx standard shipping is dead slow. They took 12 days to deliver my Shipment. They did not work on weekend looks like.

Overall happy with the process and device.

And yeah, Its absolutely not mandatory to hit thank button. If you like the detail and you think this information help others. Please hit thank

Regards

You don have to worry....phone is shipped, they will claim the authorization charge now or it will be returned back to your account in 30 days,highly doubt thats gonna happen. Just wait for few days they will claim the amout.

Bottomline is you got nothing to worry phone i shipped.

All good except I wonder why you bothered so much about octroi in Bangalore?
FYI, in India octroi is only applicable in certain parts of Maharashtra my friend. You could've chosen express option itself.
Congrats anyways
