    Well pretty much every flashcart selling site. Since they get a DMCA notice from paypal. [​IMG] (AFAIK since only DX really has said why they did it)
    At least we still have DX's work around and still have flashcart selling sites. [​IMG]

    Not everyone has local shops to buy from...

    I wish these shops would stop using PayPal... but I'm sure they "have to" since it's so easy for people to use.
    Ahhhhh America... Land of the Free. We've become so backwards since 2000...

    It is a worrying trend, especially if you have no local stores to buy from

    If there was a pay system other than paypal and that easy to use, everyone would have used that by now.

    They should code their own Pay System with no accounts required and no mandatory Zip/Post codes.

    But some people order using PayPal because of the SECURITY If other sites made their own (which would take a lot of time) how would you know that they are making secured transactions? They could con you.

    Anyways, You can still order from DealXtreame if your creative with your interweb skils [​IMG]

    The irony is, The Spanish and French courts have already ruled flashcarts legal. Nintendo is being stupid by threatening to sue these guys, even though nintendo would lose. The thing is Nintendo doesn't have the brains to understand that in order to stop DS piracy you need to stop the downloading of them. They clearly aren't doing that. There are many Legit uses of flashcarts such as DEV KIT uses, Homebrew, Your own music, and the movies you already OWN.

    there are plenty. moneybookers is one that comes to mind. i dunno why these HK sites don't switch to one of the others. i suppose the problem is that they'd lose business all around, because people are less likely to trust a payment company they haven't heard of, and for most people paypal is the only one they have heard of. their ebay monopoly has a lot to do with it.

    Your assumption to certain things are wrong, your perception is from a user point of view and not of a seller. For a seller, moneybookers cost more to maintain, there are more back end fees to deal with especially with international orders. I wasn't refering to a "friendly user" system, but a "friendly seller" system. Paypal still beats everyone there.


    For a seller, nobody gives a **** about who is a monopoly in the transaction systems. It is about how much do I keep after the transactions at the end of the month.
