    Is nds-card.com a scam website? I ordered a 3 in 1 ez flash card and a dstwo+, and after making my paypal payment (kind of sketchily) they claim my order shipped, but haven't given me tracking, and on my account order page theres no tracking, and when I enter my order number into their 'track my order' button, it says my order is not found. Getting kind of nervous. Do you guys have experience with them?

    Thanks!

    Nds-card.com is very reliable. They're GBATemp's sponsor. Be happy they accepted PayPal. According to Paypals terms, the selling/buying of flashcards is forbidden. This is why it is kind of sketchily, so PayPal doesn't discover nds-cards Paypal account and block their account. You probably got free shipping and if I recall correctly that does not include a tracking number.

    Not a scam, just slow like every Chinese flash cart reseller.

    Thank you. I actually opted to pay $23 for the fast shipping, that's why I was looking for tracking.

    You can send them an email. But besides that, it might take a while for the tracking number to show up regardless. That's just how it works :/

    I ordered an R4i from nds-card.com and it took a day and a half to get the tracking number after the shipped email. It was delivered by DHL to me in the UK in 3 days.

    I heard back last night with a DHL tracking number, and my package should arrive tomorrow. Seems my fears were unwarranted.
    Thanks all!
