    As the title implies, I've been wanting to get my hands on a Gateway 3DS card, but I am still unsure if they team or resellers support shipping besides the USA, like Mexico (since that's where I live).

    Unfortunately, the list of resellers do not take Mexico into account, the only near country is the USA, so I was wondering if I can order one card from a USA reseller and have them ship the card to Mexico from that reseller (I Know it might take longer to arrive).

    Can anyone help me out on this? I want to have the card ordered by the weekend to have it here by December 15th.

    Im from Mexico. I recently ordered a gateway cart through eachmall which is a chinese wholesale site, if you order from there i would suggest you to pick shipping trough DHL as its more fast (and reliable). Anyway, i paid $80 (around 1,100 pesos) with shipping included; shipping is fast and the reseller is trustworthy, their carts aren´t fakes. Anyway, ordering to mexico isn´t such a headache as you seem to believe; you have spent way more time than me looking for reliable sellers and i already got my gateway cart.​

    Did you order any SD with the card? Or just the bare card without any SD?

    Just the bare card; SD cards are already easily obtainable here (not to mention that i already got enough SD cards on my own)

    Yeah I just saw that. I think it won't be worth the price since I still have to wait more than a week to get the handheld, so I will be choosing free shipping.
    What were you about to recommend?

    Some people used to sell GW cards on MercadoLibre, but seems that they didn't find affordable to sell 3DS flashcards in general.

    Misunderstanding here. Eachmall is the cheapest place to buy gateway with a free worldwide shipping, so go ahead.

    Actually that is the option I went for.

    I am amazed at how shitty my luck is.
    I tried with eachmall.com, and I couldn't make the Buy to process at all.
    I tried going for ALL the resellers listed in the Gateway site for the USA and use a shipping address I have there...
    FML! NONE of those accepted the pay with the debit card.

    WTF?!
    I knew I had bad luck but that's just... Too much.

    I was lucky enough to find one guy over at MercadoLibre.com.mx that sells Gateways for like 1400 pesos, I am finally able to pay with no issues whatsoever.

    Fuck my life, seriously.
    Hope I don't get any issues with the delivery, that would be the cherry on top of my shit cake!

    EDIT:
    Wow, some light at the end of the shitfest.
    The user actually will be including some gifts along with the Gateway card.
    Two stylus and protective sheets for the screen, he even gave me the option to tell him if I had an original 3DS or an XL and according to that he will send me the corresponding stylus and sheets.
    Looking good :)
