    tbh it seems most likely that they have a small stock in the UK, and any orders they get when out of stock they just send from china or something.....i don't think any UK sellers would hold a large inventory in stock....just in-case they get a knock on the door so they dont loose too much stock

    I ordered a Gateway on Dec 2nd and it hasn't arrived yet. Singpost and local post office website are stuck at ”Despatched to overseas” two days after the order. I sent an email to support last tuesday and they said all parcels were delayed because of Christmas and New Year holidays. I don't know if believe them...

    I think gamesquest1 has probably hit the nail on the head here. They probably keep a limit on how much UK stock they hold. The R4's i've ordered from them via PayPal have turned up within 3-4 days Royal Mail 'Signed For'. They may stock a minimal amount of the 3DS dedicated cards to minimize potential losses if they're busted, whereas R4's are 'ten a penny'. They should make it clear on their website, rather than indicating everything is coming from the UK.

    Okay, I was going to order from new3dscard, but now I'm not so sure. If new3dscard is bad, where should I buy a Gateway from, instead?

    The reason that I ordered from new3dscard is because of the reviews here: http://shoptemp.net/shop/new3dscard-co-uk.html

    I have had good experiences with other sites which have positive reviews on ShopTemp before. I think we should all post an honest review on ShopTemp with our experiences once this reaches it's conclusion, as I know alot of buyers depend on these reviews.

    So I just ordered from here and each time I went to pay it wouldn't work and one time it said I was a high risk finally I got to one page that said not to refresh the page otherwise you will get charged twice and it stayed at that page for 20 mins without getting to the next page. Now I have an email from a 3rd party payment company saying my payment had gone through but the website claims no payment beside the order. I have received no reply from the website and the whole ordeal has just made me think this website is shite. Avoid gbatempers!!!!

    みんな, ハレルヤ!!!
    Today I got a reminder from Greek post office saying it will be here at 19/01/15! Not sure how, but I'll be darned!
    Also got a different tracking code that seems to work much better than the other one...
    Okay new3dscard.co.uk, I'll give you another chance!

    I ordered from them and it took just over a week to arrive. The packaging did have Chinese over it, but sender was from the UK, it shouldn't have taken as long as it did, so not really fantastic service if you ask me when they quote 3-4 day delivery time.

    I need to order another Gateway card next month, not sure who to choose.
