    I know that it sponsors GBATemp, but when I ordered my r4i gold it told me to email a chinese sounding email address, and that they would then give me their paypal... Wtf?

    So basically, you ordered via paypal, got an email that looked suspicious, that said that they will give their paypal?

    I was sketch at first too, but after my first purchase I saw they were great at what they do. It's cheap and it's worth it. I've ordered 5 times from them :)

    AFAIK, their official Paypal account was banned because of Piracy, so they use a different one and only give it through email.

    I bought a R4I Gold recently with them and paid with credit card. If I'm not mistaken, the bill came with a clothing shop name or something like this.

    If they get caught, they will have to pay millions, it happened before to a different reseller

    NDS-Card is legitimate. Ordered my DSTT a few months ago. They do the whole email thing so they do not publicly post the email. Selling flash carts and accepting PayPal is problematic. Simply email them, they will send you the address, and you send the funds as goods to them. Still have PayPal protection, without them needing to declare the goods. You should get an email very quickly with confirmation.

    EDIT: My mistake. You choose services, not goods. Still get PayPal buyer protection.

    Paypal and most credit card processors tend to not allow certain kinds of business. Flashcarts being one of those kinds.

    Between insane and insecure
    The email thing was setup because paypal bans paypal accounts related to flashcart sites.. So they setup a roundabout method to avoid getting banned.
    Nds-card.com is actually the official sponsor of GBATemp. So they are both trusted, safe, and help support the Temp.
