    Hi guys,

    Noob here, I was looking to buy an Acekard 2i for my sons DS XL and have seen that digitopz are doing them for a good price. I've done some research and can see that people have bought stuff from them and recommend them.

    Looking at their payment methods they list Western Union and TT. I am wondering how people have paid for stuff from them and is western union the preferred method?

    Thanks in advance

    Digitopz is a trustworthy site for me, bought a few times from them and usually received in about 10 days.(They ship from Hongkong). No fake cards, customer service is great, reply emails very fast. I can recommend them.

    :( Am confused.

    On this journey had purchased from nds-gear first, then cancelled as read somewhere that they're unreliable (still waiting for refund). Then ordered from digitopz but reading mixed stories about them, cancelled order. Luckily nothing to refund as they were asking for payment through western union.
    Have now ordered from nds-card, let's hope it all works out...

    Received the Acekard yesterday, that was fast! Also got my refund from nds-gear so double result. I can recommend both these companies.

    Now I'm going to follow the noob to guide to setting up my Acekard....

    Thanks to all.

    It seems like all the North American based shops are out of stock. Nds-card seems to have lost their paypal account.
    There doesn't seem to be a great purchase option at the moment.

    Any advice for someone who doesn't want to put their credit card into a Chinese site?

    Hi dsdork,

    I guess I was lucky. Ordered at the right time when they got their new paypal account up and running. The only other option I can think of is digitopz themselves as they accept western union, you can pay cash at a western union office I guess? They responded well to my emails and seemed very helpful and and I've read a lot of reviews from people saying they are reliable.

    I'm actually thinking that I should have gone for a DSTwo now because the DSi XL is having problems loading the AceKard and I have only just read the sticky on the problems people have had with AceKards and having to use "the paper trick" etc. Oh well... :(
