    So I ordered my Supercard DS TWO the other day via ShopTemp. I was wondering how long it ACTUALLY took you guys, till you it reached your door. Also, do they go to your door, or do you need to pick it up at the post office? I just ordered my Supercard on Monday. [​IMG] Just curious thats all [​IMG]

    1) Ordered Monday night, came next Monday morning. UPS.

    2) Ordered Sunday night, came Friday morning. DHL.

    Same speed IMO (4 full business days between order and delivery)

    Hope that helps. You do need to shell out the 15 bucks for that kind of delivery speed though.

    3-4 weeks, I believe. It's shipping from Hong Kong, so it takes awhile.

    Since this thread has more to do with ShopTemp than Supercard,
    it has been moved to a more appropriate area.

    I got it about 2 weeks but I bought the shipping that was a step up from free. Its seems like longer when you are actively waiting for it but it is not that long. That said, it was 2 weeks from the shiping date. If it out of stock, expect it to be slower.

    Yeah, the average seems to be between 1 to 2 weeks depending on the location. For me it took about a week to ship from HK to the USA basically May 19th to May 26th.

    I ordered my SCDS2 about 49 hours ago (Monday) and paid for the best shipping option. Said on ShopTemp it was in stock and usually shipped within 12 to 48 hours so hopefully I should soon get an email saying it has been shipped! Hoping I get it by Friday cause otherwise I will have to wait until Monday [​IMG]

    I will post here when it arrives.

    EDIT: Just got the email saying: The status of order #xxxx is now Shipped [​IMG] though 3-5 days when shipped means Monday [​IMG]

    Please do post as I am looking at trying ShopTemp for my next attempt for getting a flashcart that WILL be delivered to my Australian doorstep without complications - my first attempt, and previous may I add, meant frustration for 2 months that ended last month when finally Paypal had to force a refund from the retailer's account to mine because nothing ever came [​IMG] .

    Thanks for the update. BTW, how much did shipping cost you in AUD?

    It arrived this morning! Currently copying my games and stuff to the MicroSD card and will finally try it out.

    To answer your question, ... I don't know! Because I paid for it in US currency. I never changed the currency on site from USD to AUD, and because I am originally from the USA, I still have a bank account in the USA and have my Paypal linked to it. But if you pretend you are going to purchase it and set the Shipping to Express it should tell you the approx. shipping fee. I think the shipping fee is directly proportionate to the total amount of money you are spending on your order as well, where the shipping fee is flat no matter what you buy, but the more you spend the less the shipping!

    Awesome! Thanks for the helpful info and congrats for getting your flashcart - I feel more reassured now about buying from overseas! I am thinking of converting AUD to USD beforehand because I think I can save a couple of dollars that way. I have observed that Shoptemp adopts a fixed exchange rate regardless of fluctuations in the actual rates.

    I also think I will try registered airmail instead of DHL but I need to think about it thoroughly before I finally put in my order!

    If I lived in Austrailia, I would always go for the registered airmail option instead of DHL/EMS/USPS etc and save the money. The reason being China isn't really that far away from you. China is much much further away from Europe etc and it normally only takes 2 weeks to arrive here (UK).
