    The other thread hasn't been updated since 2007 as Opium had better things to do and with the closure of shoptemp a regularly updated thread is needed, I'm quite active here so I'll be able to update this thread often.

    Simply list every place you have ever bought a flashcart from that is still running with a description of how you found their service and prices. Pros and Cons, methods of payment, range of items etc. Please give as much information as possible. Giving extra information on stores already listed is appreciated.

    Formatting your post like the codebox below will make it easier for me to update this thread.

    Rydian that's a nice idea I'll include it in the OP [​IMG] and kiafazool the shop you recommended is censored by gbatemp so I will not add it to the list.

    -Not cheapest prices around (just a few bucks more expensive than shoptemp was), but I prefer a US (or Canada if I'm desperate) store.
    -Good support. I bought an M3 GBA expansion pack with a dead battery, and they replaced it. I had to pay for return shipping though.

    http://www.5thdimensionstore.com/ (Canada)
    -Free shipping
    -Prices higher than RealHotStuff
    -Easy Checkout (paypal)

    http://www.consolesource.com/ (Canada)
    -Prices Higher than 5th Dimension Store
    -Only store that I've seen that sells the NDS Backup Adapter Plus


    Stores I would recommend if they were still open:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    [Edit] Ahh, 2 replies since I started. Don't feel like editing now...
