Anyone know if the StauntonCastle chess store website is reputable? I am looking to make a large purchase and am thrown off by the fact that they only accept payment via PayPal. I am nervous about how safe this website is. Let me know if anyone else has purchased from this website. Thanks!

I don't know, but show us what you buy when you do ;-)

Many on here have purchased from them so it’s safe but be aware they ship from India although they claim to be in Canada. They have a very small inventory in Canada mainly due to returns so I’m told

They are reputable. I bought two sets from them. However, there have been some who said they had difficulty getting replacement pieces from SC. I had no trouble getting replacements with my first set (3.5” Morphy) and did not require any replacements for my second set (3.6” Sinquefield). I would have zero issue purchasing from them again.

I also bought a few sets from SC and agree they are great to deal with.

I got a nice set from them recently. The set was very well made and the experience dealing with Mandeep was professional. I would definitely buy from them again.

Their sets are very good value, however their customer service is significantly worse than the likes of HoS - you get a much lower quality experience in that regard.

I bought the Elite set which I love, however one of the knights was a bit damaged. I tried to contact many times via email, and through the online chat, to get a replacement piece. It took some weeks to get a response and they are very reluctant to replace, so still no piece.

Hopefully though your set will have no issues, and it’s probably worth the risk for the price, in which case yes you can consider them to be reputable.

I have a Ceska Klubovka set coming in from S.C. right now....Hopefully there'll be no issues.They come off as a step up from the likes of C.B. Not that C.B. can't make a nice set(I have a few).

Let's face it...Noj offers the finest/no worries sets on the market today,but we're talking  more expensive and a long wait..

I hope it arrives with no issues.

Haha! Thanks, but I am not worthy of that title. I think it belongs to Mr BananaMoon.

[edit] Btw, you just beat me 3 games prior. I think I might have to call you that soon.
