    I'm leaning onto buy the R4 and i'm in Canada. I live close to a supercard dealer but review are so high for R4. What should i choose? If i order, there might be customs tax.

    See that hole in your wall?
    Paypal only takes forever if you don't already have money in your paypal account and have to wait for it to transfer money from one of your checking/bank accounts.
    It might be faster if it's transferring it from a credit/debit card (haven't tried it myself).
    But I know if you already have the money in the paypal account, it's just as fast as a credit/debit card.

    You can make a Paypal account. It doesn't cost anything for a regular personal account.

    Man wtf are you talking about. You don't even need to put money in it. Just link the credit card
    to the account and when you want to make a payment, indicate the amount and the person your paying to and paypal handles the rest.

    Some people don't have a credit/debit card because they are still young'ens with inflexible bank accounts.

    Anyway, just bought an M3 simply. I should get it by the end of the week. My research... it is DONE! some what...

    Wow...alright, since obviously you don't want to wait, a credit/debit would be the fastest and easiest way. You link the PP account to your debit/cc and when you make the payment, PP automatically pulls from that source. It's all an instant process. If you do anything else (bank transfer, money order, check) you're just gonna have to wait. If you don't have a debit/cc, guess you're out of luck for trying to get it done immediately. If time is such a factor, and you've only got cash in hand, you're probably better off going with the Supercard since you can just walk up there and purchase it. If you wanna do the R4, with your limitations, you're looking at waiting a bit.
