Is nds-card.com the best place to get an R4i Gold 3DS RTS?

    Just wondering, as I live in California. From the website, nds-card.com says that for free shipping, it can range between 10-50 days.

    nds-card.com is GBATemp's official sponsor, so not only are they trusted, but buying from them helps support the Temp

    That's all I needed to know. Thx.

    Hmm, the method to make a payment with Paypal is odd. /shrug

    Paypal used to really crackdown on flashcart sites. So they have to jump through hoops to ensure their account doesn't get shutdown.

    Do you know how long it takes to receive the email regarding their Paypal account so I can pay? If they do reside in Hong Kong (basing off the shipping info), they'd be 16+ hours ahead of me, to which right now is passed 8am there.

    That's something I don't know. Being that there's timezone differences, it might take some time.

    In my experience (for an original R4) we got the payment sorted in less than 2 complete days!
    3 weeks and half of shipping to Italy if the start date on brain age is a good reference of when it arrived :P

    Well, they gave me the paypal account info, except when I tried to send them money, it says...

    "There's a problem. This recipient is currently unable to receive money. If you continue to encounter problems, please contact customer service."

    Quite unfortunate. Sent a reply back to the person who gave me the info to see if they can do anything about it.

    Have not heard back from the person that gave me the information, so I dunno what to do regarding an order with them. I'm trying to order with nds-card.com to support the Temp, but le sigh......

    Read this after I placed my order and emailed them my order number. Hope their PayPal isn't dead. Decided to revive my old DSi and I'm replacing the chassis, power/d-pad board (blew the F1 fuse, bridged it, broke the solder joint and the PCB got torn with it, just decided to buy a new one), and battery. The R4i would basically complete the project.

    Should have made a post earlier. They replied asking if I wanted to stick with the order, that if I did, they'd give me a different Paypal account to send money to. I agreed, paid to the other account, and now my stuff is on its way to me.

    So it takes a little talking with them and patience, but more or less they'll do what they can to accommodate you.

    Cool thanks, that's good to know. Got worried for a second. Luckily I happen to be good at waiting.

    Edit: transaction just went through. Order's on its way!
