SX codes, why people want them in the same second of the purchase?

    That's what happens when you buy from a company ran by 4 people total. :x they kept live updates, too. So, I wasn't mad.

    I'm kinda okay with the lag on order receiving, but I don't understand why instant delivery is not a thing. I mean, I bought codes before using special automated services before.

    you have to understand theese shops are usuaully run like from 2 guys, and the stores websites are not automated...
    this isn't your local cocaine dealer which they have someone ready to sell you 24/7
    these shops can't be like amazon or be too fancy, they are small stores, trying to make a living, probably run by a dude like you and me..
    specially since theese shops sell niche stuff like flashcarts, which can't catch much attention from nintendo or they can be easily shutted down

    That's bull. There is sites like (russian thing) where literally anyone can sell digital goods like this without having to know anything.

    Yeah I have wordpress plugins that will do DRMed ebooks/videos/downloads upon payment.
    Can't imagine it is too hard to twist such a thing to do a simple thing like this.

    I'm fairly confident the people running these shops might not be tech savvy enough or even care about investing some time and effort into their web shops.

    I've had two vendors back out on me now, I have 3 switches lined up for mods this weekend, and waited over a week for 4 codes prior. I was able to get one finally this week but then that vendor could no longer take visa payments and got blocked, then the next vendor I had some on order with for almost a week; they couldn't secure any because paypal wouldn't take payments. So I finally tried another today, Visa instant fail, Paypal instant fail. They tell me sorry all payment methods are blocking transactions lol!?

    I just want to buy 3 now to get these things out the door for these poor people. I'm throwing money at the screen and nobody wants it ffs!?

    The impatience is completely justified. Imagine waiting a week just to find out they can't process your order, then you have to go through the hassle of finding a different store to order from. Then waiting another week. It all adds up. Whereas if you find out which stores have quick turnaround time and you order from them, if you don't get your order in a day you can move on and try a different store.

    What kind of a crappy connection do you have? My latest download was 60 gigabytes and it took me 2 hours and 20 minutes. If it took any longer, I wouldn't be happy.

    So, yeah. I understand the impatience.
