Is japancodesupply.com legit?

found this site advertised on my Twitter. Supposedly it sells PSN JP cards at a much cheaper price than what PCGameSupply and PlayAsia sells them for and delivers them to you much faster.

Question is this site seems really new...so has anyone used it before? Is it safe?

http://japancodesupply.com


Reference: the 3000Y card goes for $31.49 there compared to Play-Asia's usual $42.00 price.

Would also like to know, prices don't seem too bad. Was thinking of trying out a year of JP PS+ for kicks (for the PSX archives) and find some digital stuff I can't get here maybe.

They use Paypal, and have a secured payment connection, so at least there is some comeback there if anything goes wrong.

Uh, their prices don't look as good as japan-codes.com and they're legit and delivery speed was good when I used them last year (less than 24 hours).

Edit: correction -- better prices for higher-valued cards

Solaris Japan is the cheapest I've found. I got 8000yen for 9000yen so I could buy Gundam Breaker 2 last night. It was a few hours till they emailed me though so it's not an instant fix.

I believe threads like this may be against ToS, but I may be wrong... same with CD Keys.

I thought they were against TOS if the sites were banned? Checking verification of legitimacy is okay, right?

I've never heard of it, but that's not saying much. Just try it out with paypal so you have the safety net of filing a dispute if something goes awry.

Oddly the $50 is cheaper at japancodesupply but the $30 isn't--but I guess buying multiples of the cheaper $30 card is still a better ratio, right?
Lol it seems inconsistent between PSN, eShop and iTunes... the one that gets closest to or beats 100:1 yen-to-USD ratio would be best.

Why buy 3x 3000 JPY when you can get 1x 10000 JPY from Nippon-Yasan (edit: looks like Solaris is slightly cheaper) for about the same price?

It has a cute anime girl. Nothing screams legit like a cute anime girl playing videogames.

Their prices are about a 20% markup.

Most places have quite a high markup at lower denomination to push you into buying higher ones.

Ideally, what you're looking for right now is a 1:120-ish USD to JPY ratio.

JPY's value has gone down lately.

Not sure, but I'll try getting something with PayPal. They have good prices on Japanese iTunes codes.
