has anyone else signed up to the shopto.net site, is it normal for them to ask for card details and csv number from back of card when registering, has anyone else done this?

Thats not normal, are you sure you aren't registering during a transaction in your basket?

I just tried to register with another email and wasn't asked for any card info.

nothing in the basket, i thought it seemed funny.
gets as far as registering then says

That's perfectly fine

Maybe for fraud purposes?

They ask for address info on registration, and it may flag if they have had issues with a similar address.
I registered with ShopTo some five years ago and vaguely remember having to agree to a test charge.
Have an online chat with them or call
Yep it's fine I did this in January to buy a years PSN. I thought it was weird at the time but I googled it to check.
