    I'm planning on pre-ordering Blazblue and KOF XII from this store. I thought the store looked a bit suspicious, so I looked around Reseller ratings. Surprisingly, there were two reviews, with both of them very satisfied with the service. I still wanted to make sure, and decided to ask if anyone had made any purchases from them before.

    So, anyone with any experience with them?

    So, no one knows about this company?

    The site looks like it was coded in MS Notepad lol, though I've seen lots of sites like these which are pretty reliable. Best thing is to pay via paypal for extra security.

    Used it many many times - Bought Rogue Galaxy, Yoshi's Island DS, Wild Arms Alter Echo F, Shadow Hearts 3 Wild Arms 5, Wild Arms 4 etc ect

    No problems whatsoever
    Highly recommended.

    All my imports are purchased their subject to availabilty

    You can track your order status from the site and they ship very quick from date of purchase.
    I had my orders from Canada on average about 4-5 days from ship date

    And Paypal is a must which I use

    Please ignore the people advocating the use of PayPal. They are not a bank. They are not FDIC insured. They are not regulated. They do not have standard customer complaint processes in place. They do not have to handle fraud cases. They do not have to meet minimum standards of security for authentication and the safeguarding of your data.

    This is coming from someone who was using PayPal since they were x.com.

    If you are buying online, use a credit card.

    UK PayPal has different regulations (I think)... but your right it's not a bank.

    I got scammed once and I filed a dispute with PayPal. The seller never responded to it so I got my money back by default. PayPal okay I guess, but a credit card is definitely better, but make sure you check its chargeback policy.

    I got scammed too once - and only got the remainder what was in the sellers account - it was a measly £5 and got back £3.23.
    The seller was suspended from PayPal and eBay.
