We have a new product in our store! You may remember I was running an NC purchasing service (old thread located here). We have decided to upgrade this service to something more official and supported by the forum itself. We are now offering you the ability to purchase NC cards directly through our store. The process is still the same (I will go to the local Toys 'R Us and pick up an NC card for you), but the transaction will be made through our store instead of through a topic. Hopefully this will be a lot clearer to all of our users, will allow greater exposure to the service than a topic could, and will allow everyone to track their purchases through the client area, just like you can with any other purchase.
There may be a few questions you have so I've included a list of the ones I could preempt here:
Where are they?
In the store
Why are you charging $11.75 for a $10 card and $28.75 for a $25 card?
I am doing this for a few reasons. First, i dont drive and getting to / from the mall is a bit more costly that at first glance. To put it simply the increased cost is to pay for my transportation. Another reason is that throughout the process of the money leaving my bank account (the original purchase) and then me getting reimbursed a few fees are taken from paypal and the banks so it also helps cover those costs.
Is there a limit as to how much NC i can buy?
My credit card only has a limit of 500$ so it would be nice if you kept it under that amount, but other than that no.
I placed my order but have not yet received my code
In order to process your order, I actually have to find my way to/from the mall. While I do devote a great portion of my time to this site, I will not be on 24 hour standby to pick these up as soon as they are ordered. I will do my absolute best to try and get them within 48 hours of your purchase. Those of you who have done business with me (and there are a fair number of you) you know that I do everything that I can to try and get you the cards easily, I have even called up my fiancee several times to go and pickup the cards for me.
Why am I asked for my mailing address and phone number at checkout?
To put it simply this is a very stupid setting within IP.Nexus that we have to have enabled if we wish to use the shipping orders feature. With this setting enabled, when a purchase is made it will put your order into a queue for me to see, just like you would if you ordered a real physical item (like a shirt, or hat). This way I can mark off the orders that I have already done in a very simple way. Purchases like advanced memberships are processed automatically and therefore donot produce shipping orders. You do not have to put in your real address if you do not wish to do so. I will not be using it and therefore it is irrelevant.
How will i receive my code?
The process I used before was strictly email based, but now that we are using the forum software I will keep it strictly within the forums and send you your codes via PM.
Can you ship me the physical card that you bought at the store?
No, I like to keep a collection of my own. I can guarantee you mine is bigger
That should cover it. If i see anymore good questions in the posts following i will add them to this list for others to benefit from.
Total NC Bought: 560$
