    Yes it’s fine. They have the supplier ship it to them from overseas without the box so that the customs process goes a bit quicker. Would have personally liked to have the box myself for the sake of collection but oh well. Nothing to worry about on your end

    So it wont bother you to get a brand new Switch game , with no box just the cartdridge .
    And print in cardboard its not 25 cent , i had to print a picture month ago in a sore like 7 eleven and it cost me 4 dollards ,, and besides you are paying for the box ,, what is i wanted to collect them or save it as memory .
    A simple message kinda , with deliver with no box , in just an evelope do you still wnat it ,, im going to tell whats important a whats not .

    If you're getting thousands or tens of thousands of them made at a Chinese factory, it's probably not even 25 cents.
    And Switch games don't come in cardboard boxes, so that's not a fair comparison. If they did, many people would throw them away, like they used to do back when Nintendo still used cardboard. Turns out, that cardboard is worth a lot today, but only because people threw them away and so they're hard to find.

    Got mine from modchip direct without a box. Wish i had it but it came in a bag.
    It was a little bit cheaper and definitely faster than having to wait for a month from china or canada.

    If you look on the product page, it states it’s shipped without packaging.

    people in uk/usa/canada/japan have had issues with 'customs' as such resellers in shipping from out from those locations only ship the dongle in bag. no packaging.

    odd how other sellers have no problem with customs and get the product to you in the shape TX intended. only these cucks seem to have any issue of this sort.

    As long it works I don't see a problem here. You'll just toss the box somewhere anyway

    Maybe you should have read the description or looked at modchips faq or literally anything. They clearly stated it would be shipped like this

    Probably talking about Modchip Direct as Modchip Central does not sell the SX PRO and Modchip Direct says no packaging comes with it.

    For some reason people always get these two resellers mixed up.

    I would assume you should know where you bought it, that being said you mean modchipsdirect ?

    Did you even read anything before you bought it, says right on the page that it comes with no packaging.

    The funny thing is that the teeny tiny little bag Modchips Direct sent me (no more than 2"x4") came inside a relatively huge shipping box that's maybe 4"x8"x3". (Inches are roughly 2.5 cm for those of you from outside the US.)
