What happened to GlobalQSL? Unused credits? Were QSL cards actually sent?

Many years ago, when I first learned about GlobalQSL, I found the proposition immediately compelling (see GlobalQSL Service Review from 2013). For a relatively low cost, you could upload your QSL data and GlobalQSL would print double-sided full-color QSL cards of your own design and mail them to anywhere in the world.  It seemed like a good value which greatly simplified sending international QSL cards.  I bought credits and began using the service for all my international QSL cards.

Somewhere along the way the company seems to have stopped keeping their end of the bargain.  The GlobalQSL website is no longer functional and customer credits have apparently vaporized.   Customers are left wondering what happened to GlobalQSL?  What happened to the unused credits?  Did the company actually send QSL's or simply pocket the money?  Why no communication to customers explaining what happened?

Good DX and 73, NJ2X

What I understand is that one of the business partners is SK. Some QSL bureaus report that they didn't receive cards from this service for years. Most are now migrating to Qdure ( 73, Bas

Hi Bas,
Thank you for letting me know one of the partners is SK. May he rest in peace. -- 73, Michael (NJ2X)
