After reading a nightmare thread a while back about someone getting scammed on gbatemp the community reassured me nds-card was legit. well I placed an order for a gateway cards with them over a month ago and still have not received my gateway cards after messaging them after losing my patience they said they were sorry and that they would send me another card as a replacement and to send them the older card whenever it arrives, this I have no problem with as i'm not a scumbag thief. Thats insane I've already waited a month and a half but now they want me to wait another month and a half? Why change there minds after saying they would send out another to me? I could have easily ordered from another vendor state side and paid 25 dollars less, but no I had to be squishy and order from the "gbatemp verified" site and got screwed over.
Dont bother with these people only order from verified vendors in your country.

Hate to say it, but what they're saying is in fact the truth. Its also circumstances that are far beyond their control. I can certainly understand being frustrated, but quite honestly.... Stuff happens. They can't control mail backups any more than you can. Also, I'm not sure how often you've ever ordered stuff from overseas, but 1-2 months is basically normal. Its also VERY possible (and even likely) that if you ordered elsewhere you'd be sitting in the same bind.

The norm is 20 days. Im letting people know because if they place an order they wont get it for over a month from what they are saying. If they sent me a second card by cargo plane like they said they would id be fine with that but now they want me to wait another month.

*shrugs* Orders from China take a while. One card I ordered took a month and a half. My last nds-card order took 2 weeks, and that's considered fast shipping. They can't control how the weather affect mail delivery, either.

If you wanted speedy delivery, why didn't you order from a USA shop since you are in the USA?

Three working days is the longest I waited for an order from the USA, and five days from a shop in Canada.

This is no one's fault really. You may actually get it if you wait another month. I live in India which is right next to China and stuff still takes 2-3 weeks to get here.

Hell, Gateway's next update may not even be out by the time you get your card :P

Not too angry about the 3 month wait i've been keeping myself busy playing a new legendary run of skyrim (conjuration/archer build) but still thats a really long wait compared to the 3 days I could have waited.

I've ordered from china before (free shipping) and it took 2 months.

My lesson learnt then is if I were to ever order from China (and I stay in Singapore, which is ALSO in Asia),
I need to go for better delivery options..

You ordered a month ago? Um. Well. Chinese New Year. Basically from I think 2/19 to 3/5 or so, China slows down heavily. Small shops basically stop operating, mail services slow to a crawl, and international shipping goes on to the furthest back of the back burners. I'd be surprised if your package even shipped before the Chinese New Year started, and I'd be even more surprised if it made it out of the country before then. As it stands, your order is only one of many that may take quite a bit longer to arrive than anticipated.

This is precisely why you have to watch when you order. You probably will be waiting until April for your cart to arrive. This isn't absurd, but simply the way ordering out of China is right before, during, and immediately following the Chinese New Year.

I dunno why they didn't just tell you that, but odds are they don't even think twice about it since it's just a normal yearly thing for them.

So why is this a thread to "not order from nds-card"?
They ship from China, I've ordered lots from overseas, I've had items take 2-3 months before sometimes it just gets stuck in shipping, held up at customs, etc...
Why didn't the OP just order "local" and save money and delivery time? The ONLY reason I buy overseas sometimes is to save money and/or not in a hurry. It's simple a gamble buying/shipping from overseas.

edit.....This thread should be more of a warning about shipping overseas currently....like a "heads up" to fellow tempers.

I bought from them because its gbatemps sponsor (front page) I like the community and wanted to support it.

Really, the thread itself is misleading. They shipped your package. Responsibility is out of their hands until an unreasonable amount of time has passed. All in all, you just bought at a really bad time.

This... I came in here expecting to read about fraudulent charges, or them taking your money but not shipping.
