    Looking at all the online retailers, it's kinda scary. So I am going with the official reseller, nh-game.com. I filled out my info at checkout, selected a payment mode of bank transfer since it seemed to be the only one. Hit submit and then it brought me to a page that says, "
    Thanks for your shopping! Your order have submitted, please remember your order numbers.:xxxxxxxxxx"
    I didn't enter any payment info, nor did I get an email. What do I do? What was your experience?

    Ah so that's how bank transfers work. The link you gave me shows the admin leaving a reply saying to buy from their other site. So that's what I am doing now. Seems like I can pay with a credit card there. All good now.

    So they gave me a tracking number. My order says I can track my item after 3-10 days. It's been almost a week now and I still can't track it. Read on aliexpress forums that some never received their item. Anyway, I want to know your experience buying from aliexpress.com (they have some nice clothes btw. Thinking of buying some). How long did it take for you to receive your 3ds Gateway. Were you ever able to track it?

    There's escrow if you don't ever receive your item.

    I think they might have given you a tracking number that does not work. In that case, send them a message about it.

    I can attest that nh-game@aliexpress works. Delivery depends but someone got theirs in about 1 week and a half.

    Thanks Dewdrops. The tracking number works now. Status: Process for delivery. That took about ten days before I could see anything happen to my shipment. Usually whenever I'm given a time frame, I notice a change near the beginning of the time frame (example, ships in 2-5 business days. It would ship out on the third day). So 3-10 days if a big gap, and when it didn't happen sooner than later, I got a bit worried.

    Good for you. Tracking numbers for things sent from HK usually don't work until close to a week later.
