    Default My import game site: Rising Stuff

    Hi everyone,

    Been a lurker here for a long time but I just wanted to take a moment to tell anyone who's interested about my online import retro game store: Rising Stuff - https://www.risingstuff.com/store/

    We are small but constantly growing our inventory. We try to stock a lot of the systems and games its hard to find in other places such as FM Towns, PC-FX, Playdia, Wonderswan, and many others.

    I'd really appreciate it if I could get any feedback or comments on the site. If you have any questions or anything about it too, feel free to ask here. Thanks so much for taking a look!

    It's probably more like we need to spell it properly. :P

    Question for you. How can I change the shipping from Sea Mail to another form. When adding something to the cart and trying to buy it there isn't anywhere to select a different type of shipping.

    I've checked out your site before and, if not for me being poor, would snap up that MSX post haste...

    Gotta say though, best item in your store HAS to be this:

    https://www.risingstuff.com/store/pr...tqnrhleghndtb5

    "One Penny".

    you're my new favorite import site. Bookmarked for when I get money.

    Holy crap. It's been a while.

    The price in the shopping cart is jsut an estimate of the cheapest shipping method. Once you begin checkout you can select a different method. You're not the first person to ask about this so I really should change that to be less confusing.

    Thanks! It's always been my opinion that this is the best thing the store ever has had, or ever will have:

    RS is the real deal for any one that likes to import.I've given them my business in the past and it has worked well for me.They,can even do a price match towards japangamestock.

    Glad to see I'm not the only person spamming the site around here. =p Great store with great prices, and also so really cool resources on the forums (and great people in the chat!)... really just an all-around great site. Tho I can't recommend the blog, only b/c they let idiots like me post on it.

    A good idea is to register for the forums and make a request in this thread with specifics of what you're looking for (game names + completeness & condition outlined, if those things are important to you). Or you could just post that info on here, but it would likely get seen quicker over there.

    Oh and just another note: We are currently having a Famicom Disk System game sale until the end of the month. Some pretty good prices on a lot of games.

    Nice store, very reasonable prices. The only thing that kills it for me is that you don't offer SAL shipping. I was ready to buy a few games but decided to opt out when I saw the cheapest shipping option (which was Airmail) was $23 for just 4 average-weight games. With SAL, I could get the same games all mailed separately for even less than that. I've never had any problems with the safety or speed of SAL and I've done A LOT of importing over the years, so I really think you guys should consider it, especially when you're fine with offering Seamail.

    A plug here if I may.

    I have the machine up to play these on:

    http://www.digitpress.com/forum/showthread.php?t=136861

    $175 and recently refurbished and if you need more games to go along with your new purchase, you can get them from this guy right here. I've seen a few of those prices and they are awesome!

    Now, there's no excuse not to go after these tremendous games of his offering!

    What games were you looking at that they added up to $23? It must have been heavier items such as Neo Geo carts or the computer games I would assume. Either that or there was an error in the weight of one of the items. 4 normal cd games should come to $7 or so air mail.
