Online Store Purchase Outside of US

  • #1

    Hi!

    Is there any member here who made a purchase through chess.com outside of US?

    How was the experience?

    There's an online store here?

  • #3

    Just visited it... none of the pictures show, so it makes it kinda difficult to trust it!

    This seems legit to me: http://www.chess.com/equipment

    I think the picture not showing is just a glitch.

    I can't see any picture either. It is legitimate definitely, but I'd like to see before buying. Can't just throw my money away to prove to somebody else that I am not thinking less of them.

    Just another thing to add to the seemingly ever-increasing list of things broken at this site.

    Which is a good thing. At least I'll not be tempted to waste some more.

    The equipment is sold @ wholesalechess.com  not by us.

    If their website changes or updates images and doesn't tell us we can't update them here.

    Fair enough.  

    Be good to e-mail them and tell them about the problem so they can fix it Smile

    When I've looked at shipping costs to Australia I've said "ouch" and counted wholesalechess.com out.

    I have bought equipment from the USA: main learning experience: UCSF reguations allow a wider range of piece sizes than FIDE, and "crowd" them on the board more than FIDE, so do consider the board size you buy if you buy a set of pieces with a board. If, of course, you care; I happen not to like my pieces crowded (partly no doubt because I all too often play with pieces designed to match FIDE rules and FIDE 5.5cm squares on larger boards).

    Yeah, Aussies need to be really careful about shipping costs from overseas owned sites.

    I get most of my equipment from local providers anyway, but it is good to be able to see what is available!  Even if I don't buy anything, I like to browse :-)
