They're great, ordered from them several times. Always fast shipping (most recent order, ordered 3/11; shipped 3/12; arrived 3/14). They don't price-match non-USA sellers so that kind of sucks, but they typically are decently priced anyways.

Awesome. They purchasing area looked a bit shady.

Have you had any trouble using a credit/debit card?

They don't accept debit, only visa credit cards. (Well, most banks won't allow them to charge debit.) I've never had issues but others have. I always use a card with them that's for international transactions. If your card isn't there might be up to a 3% fee from your bank for an international transaction. Not sure, I've never had any issues myself.

If your debit card is a Visa it should work, before I had any credit cards I ordered from them using my Visa debit card issued by my bank and didn't have any issues. As far as my experience buying from them, it's always been great, usually receiving my order in just a few days.

Aliexpress usually has sellers that sell most flashcards, chips etc etc. And you can use visa debit cards.

Had extremely fast shipping from them when I ordered a gateway last November. I think I used my Visa Debit card as well and immediately realized I shouldnt have. I always use credit unless it is a big name company like Amazon or Wal Mart.

I just ordered a bunch of stuff Friday from them and it hasn't shipped yet but I wouldn't expect it to until Monday as it was later in the afternoon.

You need to get youself a credit card even if it has a low limit. Length of credit history is very important. just about anyone can get a card secured with a cash deposit of like $200-300. It will pay off big time for you in a few years.

I purchased a Sky3DS from them a few weeks back.. Ordered on Sunday got it on Thursday.

After the GW update I purchased a GW from them. Ordered on Wednesday got it Saturday.

Super fast shipping, they ship from NY as advertised. The only problem is, I got hit with foreign transaction fees for some reason. They were only like $2 each.. but still.

They do accept visa debit, but most of the time your bank will not allow the transaction since they categorize it as foreign. If it doesn't work you'll have to call your bank and ask them to temporarily allow foreign transactions. Most will, but some won't.

I haven't had a bad experience, thats all I can say. Communication was accessible through emails and I usually give them a day to respond. As for technical support on products, well the mistake is never there own.
