Just to let all shopto customers know.

We have had confirmed by Nintendo our final allocation of Nintendo Wii and Ds Consoles for this year.

This means that we will be receiving stock on a regular basis right up until the big day itself.
So if you are still looking to purchase that elusive present for a loved one keep visiting our web site on a daily basis to see current availability and latest bundles.

Please be aware before you place your order for any consoles.
If you have already purchased a Wii or DS console from us in the recent past we are currently running a policy
of 1 Console per customer due to the shortage of these items. If you still go ahead and make the order we will cancel it and refund you the money which may take upto 3 days to do.
Please also note customers should not attempt to create further accounts on shopto to try and accquire further consoles. If you do then unfortunately your account will be removed from our database.

If EVERY retailer did this we would probably all get the consoles we wanted for xmas. A quote from the email

Could be because shopto.net is registered to a guy called Igor Cipolletta, and a search on Google turns up this :

http://www.gnn.gov.uk/Content/Detail.asp?ReleaseID=132678&NewsAreaID=2&print=true

But it seems some have had good experiences recently, so it may not be as it seems. I'd still think twice though, personally... at least make sure to use a credit card and not a debit card for additional protection, just in case.
#11
Erm... I have just signed up and recived my activation email instantly - have just ordered my long awaited DS, and in black too!

Not holding my hopes out too much, though after yesterday with Tesco's , I just don't think I could handle the disappointment again! :-D

Have a look on avforums, plenty of people have used them for PS3 consoles, preorders etc. They are great.

Can you find any bad reports as i note you say "it seems some have had good experiences"

Putting doubt in people's mind is not a bad thing - if it makes people extra cautious, then that's good. As I said, others have mentioned that they've had no problems and good service, so there may be no problems at all. I'm just making people aware of information that could be relevant... forewarned is forearmed, as they say. :)

As for AV Forums... apparently they are sponsored by shopto.net, so you would expect good reports from there. Some interesting reading here on that subject...

true you can never be too cautious just make sure your bank has some cover on purchases with your card

call me cynical, but what better way to get traffic through your website

I've used Shopto so many times in the past 8 months and they've always been perfect with me, including my most recent order of Guitar Hero that arrived on monday morning.

They've dispatched every item the same day, even one of my orders that I completed at 5:29pm and I received it the next morning and to be honest, I've never had service like this from any company consistantly before and I for one have always been delighted with them and will keep using them.

The way I see it, as long as there service is to the same standard and they offer the best prices on the products that I want, then I'll keep using them, regardless of the past matters, as every person on this forum has gone through something they may or may not be proud of but as long as it doesn't effect there current job, then it has no bearing on anything else.

They also seem to be one of the only companies that aren't milking the Wii and DS shortage as much as possible, even though we all know that they could easily do this and still make loads of sales.

Unfortunately ShopTo insists on only accepting VISA and Master Card Verified cards.
As mine isn't verified (My bank doesn't support this) I cant use my card with them!!!
#21
I registered but did not receive activation email to be able to buy from their website.
#22
lol, I hope my lad doesn't change his mind about not wanting a Wii! I've ordered a Wii & a DS today for 2 mates kids so will probably be banned from buying any of these for myself now! I can see why they're doing it though & it is a responsible way to do it...:)

I've had nothing but trouble with them but you get what you pay for I suppose. Rude, arrogant staff, etc...

A-n-d-y posted this at 8am this morning and it's been marked as spam & was voted cold... Bit unfair if you ask me!

I have nothing but praise for shopto. Completely the opposite to this. Helped me cancel an order and responded to emails promptly. Customer service second to none. HMV on the other hand......still waiting for those dvd despatched saturday......

For all those that claim this is a good way to generate traffic through a site - maybe but they are in stock and well priced. Try getting a console plus play from game, gamestation etc...

When it takes you to that page, can you not just click the link that says you don't have it set up?

Sorry for your bad experience.

I've only bought from them once, and to mirror what many are saying, everything was fine with very fast delivery.
