Is this a legitimate tractor part supply website?

I needed some parts to repair a finish mower I plan to use behind my tractor. Looking online I found some parts I needed on this site ( thru a google pop up deal ) and the prices were 1/4 what everyone else was wanting.
https://www.wbyanovi.com/
I did not look into them at all before purchasing cause I paid via paypal so as far as I know I cant get screwed.

I never received a confirmation e-mail from them of my order although it said I would get one when I placed the order.

Doing a google search of reviews I see nothing about nothing about them.

I need the parts but am in no rush so if its coming from china and Ill see it in 60 days thats almost fine.

If Im never gonna see the parts Id like to move on and purchase them thru e-bay like everything else I buy.

Thanks

I had a look at the web site.
They seem to sell anything.
I would not feel comfortable buying tractor parts from them.

I confess that a good price is always a hook for me, but I agree with John here. The site seems to be a mega-retailer for anything and everything. Even if they offer a warrantee, it's doubtful there would be knowledgeable customer service about the part. Things to look for - where do the parts come from and what is the return policy? If they are just a middleman for an overseas manufacturer, you may have a difficult time if the part is defective or needs to be returned.

Its not confirmed yet but pretty much a cinch that its a bogus site, I contacted paypal the day after my purchase to suspect possible fraud, they e-mailed seller and to this day still no response. I also e-mailed seller and received no response.
