    Hello! Last week I got my Sky3DS blue button from NDS-card they were really fast shipped me in like 2-3 days (Of course with DHL express shipping not with the free shipping:rolleyes:) and its really good, but they were little overpriced so probably the Plus will be a little overpriced too. I would like to get the new card also and many of the resellers will have stock on 15. December. So can someone refer legit EU Resellers? Saw some german resellers with good prices but not sure which is legit or not. Thanks.

    Forgot to mention please don't link UK sites either since the price is ridiculously high compared to USD, EUR.

    There are only official Sky3DS resellers... So obviously they are reliable.

    If you research the Online Stores and Purchases topic you will see that many of the resellers are not so trustable. :)
    So no not every of them is so reliable as you think.

    I'd really like to know an answer to this too. I'm just looking for a safe, secure and reliable seller, but that's proving extremely difficult!

    I know... I can't believe this isn't a really simple thing to answer... I mean, are people just putting their card details into these random sites and just hope it works out? Surely there's got to be just ONE site that's a no-brainer...

    The thing is all these sites are smaller sites based in China or similar, even if they claim to be in UK, US or whatever 90% of the time they ship from China/HK/Singapore. Flashcarts are pretty dodgy to begin with so the sites selling them aren't always the most reliable. Though they are not scammers the service can be bad sometimes. Flashcarts are also outlawed in some countries like the UK so that's probably a big reason why all the sites ship from Asia.

    It's not really something to be worried about, as long as you search for reviews/testimonials for a site before buying from them you are safe. Back in the day there were a bunch of well-known flashcart stores but most of them have shut down either because the flashcart business is smaller than it used to be and they were not making enough sales, or because of trouble with PayPal. So what we are left with are the scraps, the few sites still willing to risk it despite it being outlawed in some countries and PayPal banning anyone they discover are selling flashcarts.
    Generally if you can't find any info about a site that tells you if they are legit or not then I would suggest you don't buy from them. As mentioned above though, these sites most likely ship from Asia even if they claim to be EU/UK. Even if you find one that actually ships from within EU then it will no doubt cost a lot more than buying it from China/HK. So you have to make a choice, lower price with slow shipping from Asia or a higher price but delivered to you within a few days. You can't have your cake and eat it too :P

    They ship from Poland. Delivery is fast even with the low cost option. I got my cart in 4 days from order from Poland to Sweden.

    3DSCardUk.com one of the official resellers charged me £9 extra on my card and claimed it was being sent from the UK

    Some emails later and it's coming from China, let's hope it gets here and the charge is due to exchange rates, which is fair enough but I had not been warned about any extra charges

    I'd avoid them OP

    shop01media.com actually looks pretty good with a decent price! Do you know if the payment method was encrypted/secure?

    So, today a new italian Sky3ds and Sky3ds+ reseller ( http://sky-3ds.org/it/sky-3ds/15-sky-3ds-plus.html ) popped up in the list of official resellers ( http://sky3ds.com/reseller.html ); this should mean that they're trustworthy enough, but the best thing is that there's Paypal among the payment methods, hope it will remain available until the day I decide to buy it :D
    p.s. the Sky+ is not yet available on that site, but I guess it's just a matter of days for the stock to be ready

    EDIT: Actually, it's not a new reseller, but an old one (already featured in the official list) which had been erased from the list because it was renewing the site and thus offline for quite a time, now it's fully operational (and back in the list, of course); regarding the availability of the Sky3ds+, a window popping up in their homepage says that it will be in stock within the end of december

    Ohh yea I forgot to mention please dont link UK sites either since the price is ridiculously high in GBP compared to other websites where it is sold in USD, EUR.

    They are out of stock sadly, but not bad price.

    Yes it does.

    Well the site doesn't even showing up for me since the morning :\

    Yeah, as I said the site has been totally renewed and is still partially under construction; so while it's accessible for the most of the day and you can browse through all of its sections, it can go offline from time to time; it went offline for a bit shortly after I first replied to this topic, but right now is online :)
