Hello

I would like to know if any of you NintendoLife people in Europe have recently pre-ordered your Wii U console from ShopTo but more importantly if you have had confirmation that your order has been processed. I pre-ordered a ZombiU bundle this evening and have paid in full but have yet to receive confirmation that the order has been processed. I contacted them by phone and they confirmed that they're accepting pre-orders until Wednesday for guaranteed delivery on Friday - it also says this on their website.

Have any of you used ShopTo before? This is my first order with them.

I guess what I'm asking is - are ShopTo reliable?

We are in the same situation, mine is pre - ordered from them to, let's get hopeful it arrives early, as Shopto deliver early often.
Also, from me, looking around, they seem to be very reliable!

Thanks for the reply. I was worried that most would take my first post as some sort of sneaky advertisement!

Yeah, an early delivery would be most welcome!

Good luck buddy :)

You too. :) Someone on this site got Kngdom Hearts and NSMB 2 as well as a 3DS XL, each a week before each one's release! Fingers Crossed!

My pre order is with them as well. Never bought a console from them before but have bought plenty of games and they have always delivered.

Shopto.net are reliable but are you sure yours is guaranteed for Friday? As they ran out of there first batch of the Zombi U bundle yesterday. You can still pre order it (and pay for it) but it says on back order meaning another batch.

Just checked it - it's in the Pre-Order part of the Pre-Orders section of My Account - Back Orders are empty. I rang them yesterday and they didn't mention that there were any particular bundles or packs out of stock. Where did you hear this?

Just thought I'd mention (and also formally kill off this topic) that the pre-order was processed and the Wii U will be with me on or before Friday. If you want to order a Wii U for delivery on Friday (UK only) go to ShopTo. Pick any bundle or pack that has the option to pre-order, those with only the option to back order are obviously out of stock. Good luck people.

95% of my video game purchase come through them. So far they've been really reliable. One of the few websites that you can phone someone specific about problems too. They also communicate via e-mail well and generally have the more decent prices. Think they scored 9.8/10 customer satisfaction survey online as opposed to zavvi at 4.5/10 zavvi? Mine has been processed. Thoroughly recommend these guys.

Glad to here your getting one for Friday. If you look on the website and go to the Premium pack where you click om buy button it says on back order. But all the other bundles they have are instock.

I'm pre-ordered with ShopTo as well. My order was removed from pre-orders yesterday and has gone into my orders list and its processing. I've had plenty of good experiences with ShopTo. Fingers crossed its despatched today!

I got the Wii U ZombiU + Tekken Tag Tournament 2 + Mass Effect 3 Bundle for £360! Its now gone up to £415. Not bad I say.

Couple of questions though:
1. I pre-ordered multiple items, Wii U, 2 Wii Remotes, 2 Games (all due for release on the 30th). On my orders page they are all listed together under a single processing order. Will they arrive in the same box, or separately? (never received a large boxed product from ShopTo).

2. I selected to have DPD as my courier as I've had good experience with them but for some reason its automatically gone with TNT (as of entering processing). Are TNT any good? I have never used them.

3. Will I receive an email when my order is dispatched?

4. Will I receive a tracking number?

Awesome thanks for filling me in. As for question 1. They weren't all ordered together, pre-orderds don't go into your basket together which is why I was curious. However, they all are in the same 'processing order' which is what made me wonder.

I'm also hearing that apparently some EU Wii Us, have the day one update pre-installed which is good news too. Fingers crossed thats true.

If they were all part of a bundle then they may come separate. Although if they see there one order, they might try and pack them together if they have sufficient packaging for them.

Yeah hoepfully, although it wont bother me that much as mine will be plugged into the router so it shouldn't take as long. Will just the game pad in the mean time.

Just rang ShopTo, apparently all of their Wii U preorders will be delivered via TNT regardless of courier selection as DPD have told them they cannot for fill the number of deliveries ShopTo are asking for.

So anyone pre-ordering with ShopTo, look out for a TNT van, even if your not expecting it from them!
