    I know they're the gbatemp sponsored site, but I feel a little uncomfortable, like many, giving them my card info. I tried emailing them to do a paypal payment, but I never got a response.

    Can anyone tell me about their good or bad experiences with nds-card.com and how you paid?

    This explains why I'm getting an error when trying to order a DSTWO...

    The other VISA option just doesn't look safe. I was hoping I could pay using paypal. :(

    Oh trust me they would love to let you use paypal but a while ago paypal started banning flashcard sites so now there's not many options.

    If i had to buy from a flashcard site these days I'd use a prepaid credit card.

    What if i use a paypal debit card? If that doesn't work, then I would have to transfer some of my pp funds to my bank account, but im afraid/skeptical of using my bank account on flash cart websites. I cant believe how PP restrict you from using your own money on what whatever they dont like. I once tried to buy a TPU for my Vita from one Chinese site using my Paypal directly, but PP denied the transaction.

    Paypal is declining to transfer funds to retailers that sell flashcarts. It may be pretty hard, but I'd still recommend lightake.com, zhuzhuchina.com or nds-card.com on orders with credit cards.

    Paypal's been freezing/locking the accounts of shops found to sell flash carts.

    The only shops that still do it do it privately (you need to e-mail them).

    I know what you mean. I'm just not comfortable giving my card details to any chinese shop.

    Then you're either going to pay higher prices to a US store that imports ahead of time (like modchipcentral), or not get carts at all.

    They're produced in China, so it's either Chinese shops for the cheap prices, or import stores for the expensive prices (if possible in your country, some ban stores from importing them).

    They're the most trustworthy seller for this stuff as far as I can tell, yes.
    I've even heard stories where they replace the card if it gets lost in shipping.

    I recently ordered a SuperCard DSTwo from them and it arrived in perfect condition in about 2 weeks, they even taped a little piece of bubble wrap over the cart inside the package to prevent it from falling loose. The NDS-Card people know what they're doing and they care about their consumers. They're relatively quick to respond to emails as well. Truely worthy of being a GBAtemp Sponsored Seller.

    And they do* take PayPal payments as far as I can tell, since that was how I paid them.
    *at the time of this writing

    That should work, the PP debit card is just like any other debit card.
    The thing is once you transfer money to PayPal, it's not yours anymore. That balance on your PayPal account is just virtual, they have full control over the actual funds. PayPal is not a bank :P

    Edit: @Xenon Hacks Oh, I didn't realize that :P
    Nevermind me then.
