    Hey guys, sorry if this has been asked before, I couldn't find an answer so please delete this thread if I am breaking any rules.

    Anyway, I was looking for the cheapest and most reliable Gateway reseller that ships worldwide, namely to New Zealand. I usually get my flashcarts from nds-card.com, but they sell the Gateway for $80 and I was looking for somewhere cheaper. Also I want a place that is reliable and doesn't sell Gateway fakes, as some of the links I've found aren't listed on the official Gateway resellers list. So if anyone could link me to a cheap, reliable Gateway reseller I would greatly appreciate it, thanks. :)

    Have you given ShopTemp a look? Every shop on there should be reliable, especially the verified ones. But the fact is that the Gateway is very pricey. The further away you get from the $80 price tag, the harder you'll find it is to get one. I live in the USA, and I bought mine from ModchipCentral. They only ship to the USA and Canada, but it still cost me $70 plus shipping. It's an expensive card. If you really want one, you'll just have to own up and shell out the money for it. If I had to guess, New Zealand isn't a more common location to ship to, and that may be where that extra $10 is coming from. No matter what you do, even if the price is appealing to you, I personally recommend you don't waste your time with a Chinese seller, as in my experience they are never very trustable.

    Also remember when you think you have found a site check out scam advisor, bbb, and what not

    Well everyone mentions the website eachmall, which isn't listed on the official Gateway reseller list. I've looked there and I feel that it is a good price, but do you know if they are selling official Gateways?

    Please don't use eachmall, they'll ask personal information from you (like passport scans etc., which is very shady). See my and other comments from this thread

    Pay the extra 10-20€ to save yourself the hassle...

    That only happens if you use tenpay for your card payment, I ordered from them on Wednesday using the other option and it shipped Thursday without issue.

    They charge ~50% more for the same thing. I don't mind waiting an extra week.

    38 and won't have to pay anything as these China sellers always mark the shipment as low value for customs. I haven't seen any UK sellers listing for much below £60.

    You're right that's not too bad, but even in the unlikely event I do have to return it I'd still be saving a few quid. Fact is I had a max of £40 to spend on it this week so China was the only way to go :glare:

    I have no fucking idea.
    How did they order? Using their card details or PayPal?
