I think the site works behind the scenes by storing each order line as a temporary order in either the database or a cookie which then allows the information to be accessed when you have been transferred to the secure site (no good storing it in a session as I don't think it can be maintained between different virtual hosts)

Hi mate, all I can quote is from my own experience as a Star Wars collector.

I use Ebay, Amazon and Play quite a lot for mainly Star Wars items, books and some DVD's.

Ebay is where I get most of my Star Wars gear, the best online place to find just about anything Star Wars you are looking for, one of the best.

Play is good but I find they stick to the more commercial items at conventional prices, where as sellers on Ebay can specialise in more rare collectibles. Play are great with free postage, quick and well packed for the post. Sometimes some great discount deals can be found on Play, sometimes not. I would rather buy DVD's of Play because of the great money off deals.

Buying from Amazon directly is good, items come in good time, lots of special deals can be found too. The Amazon market place is similar to Ebay in the choice of more rare items. You get a little more control over postage options / costs too.

I have used some other smaller sellers on the net, all of them have been great, some post very quickly, but stock levels can be limited, which is to be expected when the small guys compete with the big guys.

Hope it helps mate

Can't add anything different to the above except I go wherever is cheapest for whatever I'm looking for. Certainly wouldn't say I'm loyal to one site................. except Sideshow Collectibles.

Their customer service, shipping costs, after sales, complaint handling, freebies for fans etc etc Is just second to none. Think I've been buying off them for 8 years now and they are so good is stopped me from getting into Gentle Giant really.

Don't know if thats of any use. :?: :)
