    Ok so the only two payment options there on the site is PayPal and western union. Anyone else have a alternitive to this site? Or anyone have stories if they ever got their card? It’s just, the fact that it only supports PayPal and western union is quite sketchy

    I've done 4 orders in the past 4 months. Within those 4 months I've gotten all my packages on the predicted ETA.
    They have to use obtuse payment methods to keep the site running. They do run a legit site, but do have to use roundabout methods due to historical issues with sites like paypal.

    Flashcards are illegal in most countries and why they have such a weird method of purchase... There is a reason you can't just walk into a GameStop and buy one like a PowerSaver or something.

    I purchased an order and paid with PayPal immediately on the 1st of the month.

    I have the transaction ID number and their payment request was definitely received.

    Still no word or response from them yet.

    Does this usually takes so long?

    Oh, and their Contact Us page is broken because the Captcha feature doesn't work correctly.

    Please define sketchy and PayPal? Paypal is one if not the safest way to buy stuff online.

    Ok :P but what risk is there when you pay with Paypal? Paypal has a no delivery money return policy.

    I ordered a card from 3ds-flashcard.com and they request a friends and family payment. I will agree with Monkeyman it was sketchy but they delivered and they responded in a timely manor to all of my emails. Also received the flash card sooner than I expected. Also they ship out of California so that was a plus.

    ordered an R4i GOLD 3DS RTS on Aug 12, and (based on the tracking number) sent on Aug 23
    so yeah they're slow but they're real (the card works fine too)

    ive ordered off them 5 different times. no problems with them, two of the orders did take a bit longer to get here but that's also due to their (china's) holidays being different than ours (usa holidays i mean), and the fact that it normally takes at least 2 weeks to get here, if you're lucky. they *seem* sketchy because the product they're selling you is, legally speaking, sketchy.

    just order it, you'll be fine

    nds-card.com is a sponsor of the Temp. I've also ordered quite a few times from them. It's a legit site.

    All flashcart sellers use a weird way to support paypal and the site indeed only supports Paypal and West Union. I 've tried ever but then change to the other one.

    http://3ds-flashcard.com/ is the best place to buy flashcarts in my opinion. You can use credit/master cards or use PayPal (all of which is secure). They don't sell fake flashcarts at all, they make sure it's the real deal before they sell it. I already bought a flashcart from there (R4i SDHC 3DS RTS to be exact). They also can ship from the USA.

    I dunno, any website offering free ROMs alongside their products is immediately a red flag for me.

    On the other hand, nds-card is completely legitimate. They even explain their roundabout payment method in their emails.

    Also, it's 2017, how the hell do people still not know how to use the Search function? Fuck me.

    They send you an email containing the sites for that, trust me they aren't bad, I bought a flashcart from there already so I know how it works.
