    I have a question for those who have paid for their nds-card.com orders with credit cards.

    When I tried to do just that, I got an email from a third party payment company asking for a picture of the card, or last month's billing history, to verify the payment wasn't fraudulent. They claimed they wouldn't be able to do anything with it since they only wanted the front, but it seems sketchy to say the least. There's also the issue that, on the specific card in question, the security code and number are on the same side, so I'd have to block out part of the picture and I'm not even sure if they'd allow that. But the main issue is still that it doesn't seem normal.

    I think it's also worth noting that the email is definitely linked in some way to my order, since they included the order number from nds-card and had part of the credit card number I tried to use.

    My question is if this has happened to anyone else and if they had any trouble afterwards. Also, does anyone know if they'll accept a picture that has everything but the part of the number they have blocked out?

    It's beginning to seem like this is the case, sadly. The worst part is that this isnt even the first bump in the road. I wanted to use this site since they're our sponsor, but it's been quite a bit of trouble.

    Don't have a PayPal, and the method the site uses for PayPal seems pretty weird and risky.
    They don't have the product I was looking for :(

    I've bought from nds-card multiple times. Besides the weird way in which payments are made, everything was fine. You should go with PayPal.

    That sounds sketchy as hell. I've purchased things from some websites that look like a scammer from India created them and I haven't had to do anything like that

    The payment options on nds-card doesn't fit on my particular taste, I don't like giving up my credit/debit card data info just like that to Paypal, the've made charges before out of the blue, so I discarded the card data from my account. Now I don't trust Paypal anymore. Western Union charges are not that low where I live considering the source and destination country for the payment, so it's not an option for me neither.

    Any other options where we can trust and that payment and shipping charges don't are overpriced? (Like ebay).

    NDS-Card has no SSL cert, or even a server setup that can accept secure https connections:

    What does that mean to you? Your card details are sent insecurely over the internet for anyone to intercept. It's also likely their stored as plain text in a database someone on the other end can look at.

    @ThisIsDaAccount if you entered your card details and clicked submit you should phone your card provider and get the card cancelled. This is not how eCommerce works.

    If a legit card payment processor such as SagePay for example was been used, the transaction is ranked and given a score of how likely it is to be fraudulent. This is based on many metrics you can read about here: https://www.sagepay.co.uk/support/12/36/fraud-screening-indicators-what-to-look-for

    Most credit card company's will write off the money stolen and refund you but that's besides the point.

    How is NDS-card the Temp sponsor again? The problem with other sites, is that there are no NTRHax compatible cards for users who have 11.5 firmware, so yeah, we kinda have to use them. Either that, or I pay for someone to install CFW. I was gonna ask around for an already-modded flashcart, not a good idea either.

    It's a strange situation to be in, NDS-Card is legit from the point of view they send out your order promptly and are selling what they say they are selling. However from a payment point of view they have no concern for safeguarding sensitive information.

    If you are paying by PayPal it's not an issue, however they certainly shouldn't be taking card payments or be endorsed by this site when people's cards are at risk.

    The admins are aware as i message Shaunj66 as a courtesy before posting the above, so we will have to see if anything comes from that.

    How is the shipping? There are four methods, it seems, how fast is each one? I'm tempted to get one of these, but I'm on the fence.
