    I want to buy a Supercard DSTwo and I tried sending the place I used to go to money through PayPal, only to get greeted with a message that the recipient is unable to receive money. Do you guys know of any other merchants who sell legit DSTwo's that are in the US and take PayPal?

    Just finding a US flash cart seller is hard enough but paypal is not going to happen as paypal, probably directed by the likes of Nintendo, have taken it upon themselves to act as whatever and flash cart sellers will tend to find their accounts, with funds in it, locked up by paypal without much chance of getting it out. A few tried workarounds like having a private account and initiating contact otherwise but that only got so far.

    http://gbatemp.net/topic/324432-paypal-cracking-down-on-flashcart-stores/ has more and beyond that I think GBAtemp policy is paypal are a bunch of bellends.

    Some offer other methods but beyond that disposable credit cards and one use ones from banks are not that hard to get hold of and usually represent a better option.

    That's the only money I have right now is in my PayPal account, so it's PayPal or bust at this point.

    I don't think there are any shops left that still use paypal.
    The best site I can suggest is http://www.zhuzhuchina.com/store/
    But they no longer use paypal either.

    Paypal has been cracking down on flashcard sites, so they either shut down or moved to another method of payment.

    I can't. I don't use it that often that I need one. Unless someone on here wants to part with theirs.

    EDIT: Come to find out, they contacted me already about it. The messaging is done on their site now. I was able to send the PayPal payment to them. Now, they have to process it. I bought two items already from them with PayPal and since they are located in NJ, I get my card in 1-2 days first class.

    I'd tell you guys the site, but I don't want to get in trouble again for "linking".....

    I was just buying a R4i Gold from this site and aparently they do accept paypal, but in case of international customers they ask to send an email requesting the paypal adress to pay.
