    I just went and attempted to order a gateway from modchipsdirect (a listed offical retailer) which said they are from NY...only to find out they charge you in another country...which my bank doesnt like, so it got blocked. I personally don't know the place so im sort of fencing if i should even bother unblocking it.

    Is there another place that has it in stock now that charges and ships in the US? I know and have used realhotstuff, but sadly they still dont have any in.

    any suggestions or anyone know a place that charges and ships in USA?

    If they charged from the US too, they would probably have met the same fate as hackyourconsole by now.

    If you live in the US, UK or JP areas this is what you have to get use to. Other things you might have to get use to is you can't use mastercard with most vendors now.

    My bank specifically blocks all transactions from a few different places which have cause a lot of problems and will not allow payments from those areas. Of course none of the places seem to allow paypal which would bypass that stuff, but there isnt much else i can do about that.

    The only other places that ship from the US on their official list are realhotstuff (which i trust, but has no stock) and windycityrepairs which also has none and finally r4icard which i dont hear the greatest things about and is also $10 more.

    Just out of curiosity, what is it with Mastercard that makes it undesirable for flashcards retailers? Not that I have one (I only have a Visa card).

    Most of the shops out of asia, don't accept it. It has to do with either the banking policy or a policy with mastercard. As to what it is specifically, nobody seems to know exactly.
