I’m from brazil and i’m again interested in building/moddind a japanese style stick. My problem is that i do not have an international card and dont have access to one. So i have limited options:
One of them is to contact friends in USA and other countries to send me the parts ,but again i would probably have problems in actually sending them the money so thats a big deal
There are some people who live in usa that work buying stuff on ebay and sending them (with services including increasing the chances of prohibited or taxed products to get to the destination without that kind of problem, damn!) to you. But the problem here is the costs of the services.
And, finally what i’m thinking: The brazilian post services have a money/check order service where they send your money to the destination youve specified. The problem is that the lis of countries is a bit limited (uk, usa and canada are not supported, for instance), SO im searching for other countries, like France or Spain that have this service, so i could buy the parts from there. Thats why im looking to other places to buy parts.
I know that this kind of topic can be a pain in the ass for you guys, cause im actually just searching for a solution to my personal problema, and like ive specified i could (and as the matter of fact i will) try my first and second options, but maybe if a list is built, we can create a list/database for where to get parts everywhere.
Of course if anyone here also think in other solutions, i will be grateful.
