    I registered fine but the check out is also fucking broken.
    Trying to check out just leads to the shopping cart which for some reason has all the checkout shit below but it's busted and doesn't ask for card details and then the few times the check out DID take me to the check out page it it still didn't work and woudn't let me put in any card details. Then another time I couldn't sign in without first clearing cookies related to the site. Never before have I had such a pain in the ass trying to give a shop my money.
    Even now it says SX OS in stock but if you try to add to cart it tells you it's out of stock.
    Tried different browsers, different computers and a phone with no difference at all.

    I spent the past 20 minutes trying to buy from Online-Trends (mainly because the site is secure), but its really slow and it won't let me make an account, enter a voucher code, or purchase anything.

    EDIT: I gave up and bought from sxflashcard. The payment process was fast and easy, and I received a notification email that it went through. The live chat is offline, and I still haven't been sent a key, so if you do order from them I guess do it early in the day/not on Sundays. I'm not too worried as it seems significantly more trustworthy than axiogame.

    EDIT 2: 2.5 hours after purchase the Live chat briefly went online. I gave "Lisa" my order reference and received a code. Overall the only negative thing I have to say about sxflashcard is that they have weak payment security (if you buy from them I recommend using a prepaid Visa card).

    Honestly from my experience I would avoid. They told me mine would be shipped Friday and then said it would now be 1st July and have now cancelled my order so not a great company I wouldn't mind but as its the pro its a nightmare to get anytime soon.

    Their website has some problems in fact. To buy something you need to add it to the cart (without any account logged in, mainly because it is impossible to login) and complete your purchase creating a new account.

    Ordered a key a few hours ago. Got it now. Payed with Mastercard so instant "confirmation" of payment.

    I purchased 11 hours ago, my order status says "cancelled", I contacted them and they responded straight away telling me my order wasn't cancelled. Just have to play the waiting game :/

    Edit
    Now 25 hours ago and it still says cancelled, not looking good.

    I had a LOT of trouble buying from online-trends. Any credit card, Visa or MC, that I tried would fail immediately. So then I tried Litecoin payment, which gives you 15 minutes to send, I sent it within 5 minutes, then it failed too. Fortunately it was refunded back to me because I put my deposit address in. Then I tried it again and it said Litecoin could not be accepted! So I waited about an hour, and tried one more time, this time it let the payment go through and I got a confirmation page with an order number. However my order history still does not show the successful order, only the previous failed attempts. I know I have to be patient, but wow this is such a major hassle just to buy a damm code.

    Edit: Actually got my code 1 hour later. Once you get through the initial trouble, they are quick it seems.

    Same issue here, I did eventually get my code after nearly 2 days. I'd recommend shopping elsewhere.

    I bought the SX PRO through Online-Trends last Thursday.
    Am I supposed to recieve the code inside the package when it finally arrives? Because I haven't gotten anything.

    Yes, I ordered June 16th and asked for the License early while I wait for the hardware. Said it's inside the box so now the long wait....

    you can use the dongle to upload payloads to any switch, but you can only use the backup loader functionality on the switch which generated the license_request.dat and which you then processed your license key against as the license.dat file used to authorise the os backup feature is console specific
