    I have to ask is this site legitimate? I ordered their $60 gateway card and according to their tracker it hasn't left china yet! I paid extra for the 5-8 day shipping and it's day 10 and still has not left shenzhen. i'm starting to think this site may be another spoof site. I went through here and it shoptemp listed it as a reputable site but so far it doesn't seem like it! Have I really screwed the pootch on this one?

    Items take Forever to get out of China especially during the holidays so I wouldn't be worried. I've bought from eachmall in the past and they haven't screwed me over yet.

    Just got mine from them, if it says it sorted and departed check USPS with your tracking number it stops tracking after it leaves china.

    I nearly ordered from eachmall as well. However, after hearing from other threads/posts that the site is not trustworthy, I figured it would be worth the extra 10 bucks to order from a better site (plus, other sites offer 2-4 day shipping). Right now, the cheapest price I can find is 72.50 on http://www.3dsgamerworld.com/gateway-3ds-card-for-3ds3ds-xl-p-9.html

    So is this the norm now, order first and then ask questions later?

    When did you order yours? I'm debating on whether or not the shipping option above Free Shipping is worth the extra $1.

    Ordered mine from them on the 4th, last tracking event was "export customs scan" on the 7th. A quick Google suggests this is normal and it likely left China already. This was with the standard free shipping though.

    Ordered it Dec 01, it was in my mailbox the 13th, not bad when you think about it. This was with the option above free shipping for the extra $1 fyi.

    Go to the search bar and type in eachmall.me. A lot of people have had complaints that they never received their order, even after like 2 months. I'd pass.

    If you don't have a Visa credit card, you cannot order from the cheapest places including modchipsdirect and yeahgeek.

    From what you are telling us it's not their fault it's the shipping company faults

    I also used Eachmall. Good company. As far as I have heard very few (actually - I have never heard of any) people had problems with them. Would buy from them again. (Takes a long time however - as posted by others)

    Indeed, I've bought loads of modchips, console repair parts and flash carts from them with no issues whatsoever.

    I ordered something from China around this time once and it took 10 months to arrive. It got lost in the mail, I'm surprised it arrived at all. Would the company reship if you never received your item is the real question here. My company did (I didn't order a Gateway, I bought an N64 game), so I ended up with 2 copies.

    Yeah I'm just going off of what other people have posted. I'd personally spend an extra 10 bucks to get the card in 4 days, considering the ridiculous shipping time from eachmall. To each his own.
