    Is http://3ds-flashcard.com a good/legit shop.
    please don't recommend other shops unless they accept PayPal and are located in the US, but please answer my question.

    iirc, it's pretty hit-or-miss with the service/shipping working well. Been a while since I've looked into it though.

    I know you don't want any site outside of the US, but http://nds-card.com is the only site I've heard of that provides decent service consistantly. They're also the sponsors of GBATemp, so...

    Can I use Paypal? If so I may consider it.

    Well, have you bought from there, what would you rate it on a scale of 1 to 10.

    I have not, because my family won't buy anything from Chinese websites really.

    I've heard that they're pretty good though. At least more than i have for the other site you linked.

    I would like to mention that most shops say they are in the US aren't really in the US. Most of the time they either have a US middleman from China or just straight up ship from China anyways.
    I've heard hit-n-miss results with that site
    nds-card.com is based in China, but they are GBATemp's official sponsor and has a 100% record since being the Temp's sponsor.
    nds-card.com does accept paypal, even though they use a roundabout method of doing so.

    Have you bought from nds-card.com? If so what would you rate it, and did you ever buy from any other sites, if so what would you rate those sites.

    I've bought 2 carts from them in the past and I would give them a 9/10 for customer service. Because they are based in China and have to do a roundabout paypal method (paypal will ban them if they find out they are a flashcart site.) Coupled with their sometimes broken English, it can be rather challenging to communicate with them. Otherwise I would give them a 10/10, they have decent shipping and I got the product when they said I would get it.

    I've bought a card from them before, some confusion about the transaction but other than that, 10/10 for working through it with me very quickly. That and the card arrived within the window they provided.

    I don't know of any better sites really, I think that's your best shot.

    Nds-card.com has paypal and almost every site that uses paypal will use a roundabout method of payment. Flashcart sites have to use a roundabout method because paypal bans flashcart accounts.

    How about tech3ds.com? I hear it accepts paypal, I just can't find anything on it.

    You're not going to find any better, basically all flashcarts ship from China.
