    [Tutorial] Ordering the OnePlus One via Comgateway

    Part A: Comgateway
    1. Register and get a US Address
    2. Go to Part B
    3. Welcome back, if you are reading this and have not completed reading Part B as mentioned in item 2 above, do push up 20 times and move on to Part B.
    4. Seriously... 20 push ups, then Part B.
    5. Back to business. Once your brand new OnePlus One reaches your U.S. Address, Comgateway will send an email to you. Normally they would attached the packing slip received to the email. You can download their App at the Play Store if you do not want to miss the notification.
    6. Sign In to your Comgateway account.
    7. Select Packages at U.S. Address.
    8. Click on your package, and select Ship Now
    9. Fill in the required details.
    10. You will get a summary of the total cost of shipping your OnePlus One to India.
    11. Pay via PayPal or Credit Card
    12. If payment goes through, you will receive another notification email from Comgateway, notifying you of the shipment.
    13. Wait for DHL to arrive at your doorstep:D

    Part B: OnePlus
    1. Register
    2. Login and go to Store Account (under human icon)
    3. Go to Address Book, and add New Address
    4. Billing Address
    Key in your Indian Credit Card Address here. This address is where the bank sends all your monthly statements to. It can be your house, or your office.
    5. Tick Use as my default billing address. Save Address.
    6. Shipping Address
    Key in the address you got from Comgateway (Refer to Part A) here. Your phone number here is the phone number provided by Comgateway.
    7. Tick Use as my default shipping address. Save Address.
    8. Check if you can make international online purchases from your Credit/Debit card or not. If you are not sure, call the bank. Better yet, go there and inform them to enable it.

    That's all you need to do before receiving your invite.

    Next Step: Keep reading below...
    After receiving the invite:
    1. Click on the link in the email, and claim your invite
    2. Purchase whatever it is that you need from the store
    3. Click checkout when you are done
    4. At the checkout page, two things can happen.
    Situation 1: All is well. Billing address (India) and shipping address (United States) will be shown.
    Situation 2: Your Billing Address and Shipping Address are listed as the same, which is the Indian address. DON'T PANIC!
    5. Untick Use Billing Address as Shipping Address.
    6. Select your U.S. Address from the dropdown under Shipping Address.
    7. Do a final checking to ensure that the Billing Address is the same as your Credit Card address, as this is where most problems occur.
    8. Once you are satisfied with everything, proceed to checkout via PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account to use this payment method.

    NOTE: As OnePlus already allowed payments to be made from anywhere in the world, and not restricted to the 16 launched countries, you DO NOT have to use the BuyForMe service from Comgateway. Your Indian Card will do just fine.

    9. Login to your PayPal if you have an account, OR select Direct Debit/Credit Card if you don't.
    10. Recheck to ensure details are correctly entered.

    How to change PayPal currency to transaction currency (USD) to get better exchange rates than provided by Paypal (Credit to our own @cuteamit2 for this):

    11. Confirm your payment. At this point PayPal will check the system to ensure that the Credit Card address entered matches the address in OnePlus system (now you understand why it is important to key in the address exactly as it is?). Any discrepancies found will result in your payment being rejected and you having a hissy fit.
    12. If payment is rejected, read this post again. If it goes through, CONGRATULATIONS! You are now the proud owner of a OnePlus One.
    13. You will receive another email from OnePlus confirming your recent purchase. Keep this email for future reference.

    From hereon, shipment will be delivered via UPS to your U.S. Address.

    Next Step: Refer to Part A
