    I always thought they used Recorded Delivery for their own benefit, to cut down on people making false claims of stuff not arriving since they have to sign for it. Mind you, my postman just signs RD stuff and shoves them through the letterbox anyway...

    Anyone know how to apply points earnt on my PS Vita with ShopTo to a 16GB Memory card preorder. Do you have to wait until it goes live as an order to do so?

    Ignore figured it out

    Just use first class. Unless you live on the shetland islands or something, you'll get it the day before.

    Just started using ShopTo, after Amazon Prime turned out to be not so "Prime" (pre-ordering SFxT 2 months in advance with Prime shipping, and it arriving 5 days after its release date springs to mind). Love ShopTo, really fast, and its nice to see on the email that your product *actually* exists. With some other companies, you really begin to wonder after a week has passed..

    Yeah, same! I did a double take at my phone when they informed me of dispatch on Thursday.

    I've noticed that many of my delivery estimates from them have been slipping. Even had a few missed delivery dates using their expedited service. Also, Amazon are just plain bad for pre-orders - I'll never use them again if I want day one delivery.

    The Witcher 2 delivered last Friday ahead of today's release and now Disgaea 3 for PSVita has arrived today ahead of Fridays release.

    Once again, excellent service from shopto.

    Yep, I'll chip in and say Shopto are superb on customer service.
    Great delivery times, The Witcher 2 was here Friday last week.

    On the few occasions when I have ordered the same item twice by mistake, they have instantly cancelled the order and re-credited my account upon ringing them.

    Only thing to be wary of is when buying three of the same item, you get classed as a Trader and thus lose out on the B/S/G reward scheme, not a biggie as the rest of the service is great.

    is it me, or are Shopto going expensive?

    Diablo 3 - 36.85 (32.99 @ Game FFS, 32.91 @ Amazon)

    Resident Evil 6 - 44.86 ( 39.99 @ Game, 37.97 Amazon)

    I know Shopto include free first class and good service but so do many of the alternatives. Looks to me like they've taken a step in the "greed" direction since GAME went tits up.

    Pre-orders are going up across game retailers in general (look at Zavvi/TheHut as well) - supermarkets are the best place for pre-orders now.

    fletch7100, Max Payne is 39.85 on console at Shopto! Have you considered using code 5OFF35 at Tesco to get it for 31.97?

    While I agree that their prices do seem to have crept up, I find that the higher prices are placeholders and you get an email a few weeks before saying the price has been lowered.

    For the emperor!

    Have they officially stopped doing PSP games? I wanted to get Fate/Extra from them, but the search brought back nothing and the section seems to merged with the Vita section and range looks minimal.

    "My Orders" "Pre Orders" "Cancel Pre Order"

    Tell them why you are cancelling via the pop up window and that's it.

    It's not Rocket Surgery... User Fail. :)

    To be fair it is a bad website. Only really worth using shopto if you soooo desperate to play a new game and get it on the Wednesday not the Friday.
    Only used it for reach n bf3. Good quick service.

    I find Shopto perfectly easy to use, and although it doesn't look flash it is at worst functional.

    I like the site, always found it easy to use. See more flashier sites that have been rip off merchants. So don't just judge it on looks alone. Never knew about Shopto until I heard about it on this Forum, wouldn't use any other online firm for buying game now

    Hopefully Game get themselves sorted out, means shopto may lower their prices again to be more competitive.

    All games received day or two or three days early. Put order in 2pm first class mail got it next day.

    No problems with the site, managed all my orders, cancelled preorders quickly.
