iWhy is Hobby Search not a mfc partner anymore?n/a

I tried checking around a bit if there's any requirements that need to be done to be a mfc partner but didn't find anything.

Why is Hobby Search not a mfc partner anymore?

I noticed that a few days before when I clicked on a JAN and couldn't choose Hobby Search to check if they have it.

I mean even if there are requirements they can't be high, given such scalper's like Solaris Japan, Plamoya etc. are partners still.

Yes, I almost feel some partner shops should be banned at this point... jacking up prices on preorders is consistently sending people into a state of panic, and unrealistic aftermarket prices make unknowing members list their own for sale for similar amounts (of course only to be ignored by the community).

My preferences are cheapest hehe. But i hear EMS attracts alot of customs, which idk if Australia does or not.

Kiz-xo (5 days ago) #23828100on their chart EMS seems cheaper than SAL, But theres also SAL small, which one would you recommend? (As SAL small could go into trouble, but EMS n Sal can get expensive)

NemsEngelAceSasu (5 days ago) #23827442I have used them a lot. And their postage is totally normal. They do not overcharge like CDJapan does.

Lilie (13 days ago) #23483094May i ask what's the story behind Japan Best? what happened to them?Well as far as I know they were a partner shop but they were very shady (i.e. selling used items as new, selling bootlegs etc.), and of course with a bad customer service to add. They used to have a user here like some stores have, and you could see all of their clients' rage in the profile comments. I tried searching for that user but it seems it got deleted. Then there was a case before a year or so that the mentioned user started spamming comments during a very short time period in literally every poplar figure's page ("in stock at our store" etc.). Needless to say that they didn't had any of those figures in stock. People who paid never got the items as to my understanding. After that they disappeared. That is what I remember.

As long as I've been on MFC I can't recall them being a partner. I'm pretty sure AmiAmi have only recently become one too along with a few others so it might be a case that MFC has started to gain ground and be recognised as something they should affiliate with?
