    Germanys goverment is bare ass and needs loads of money. So, as a German, everything that you import from outside the EU is being taxed (even the shipping costs!), if the value is over 20 Euros. You also may have to open your sending in front of a customs officer and have to explain what the content is, and if these incompetent fools think the content is illegal or counterfeit, they may confiscate it... :gun:

    Because of this hassle i have a simple question: Which shops ship their 3DS Cards from within the European Union?

    I rather pay a little more, than going throu the process mentioned above. :glare:

    Teensy.co.uk ships from the UK but if they don't have any in stock, you could be waiting weeks for them to receive a new shipment.

    The shop is confusing! If i click on "Sonderangebote: Lieferung aus DE", then add the Gateway card to the basket, i get 2 shipping options: Einschreiben (free) 8-15 Days (too long, cannot be shipped from germany) OR DHL Express - 15 Euro, takes 3-5 days - too expensive to be shipped from germany. Confusing nonsense... who designs such shops? Whatb exactly did you do to get it from Germany?

    You mean http://www.thegamecollection.net ? Sorry, i can't find the Gateway card in their shop... are u sure they sell it?

    They are also confusing: If i calculate the shipping costs for germany, i get 3 options:
    • Registered Economy Mail 10-20 days €3.99
    • Registered Air Mail 5-10 days €6.99
    • EMS Data Post Express 3-5 Days €16.00
    Sounds like shipping from china :blink:

    Oh... good to know. Thanks.

    Well.. they are really a little bit expensive. If you're from UK, was this really the best/cheapest option for you?

    It wasn't the cheapest, but I don't have any patience so I went with the fastest option since Teensy were sold out :P

    Thanks for all your kind help!

    I made the deal with elewelt.com. 65 Euros for a Gateway Card incl. free shipping (within Germany) was a cheap and fast choice. I could pay them via bank transfer to a german bank account. Shipping was very fast, i got the Card within 24 hours. :)

    What a shame, that the Website design is so confusing... you really have to talk to the customer support first, if you want everything go straight

    Cymods no longer do GW cards, their sister site is Playmods.co.uk
