How do I know GamerTech.shop is legit and not just another scam site?
Before Gamertech.shop launched in January 2022, the founder of the site (Mike) was trading and selling hardware via Reddit communities (shoutout to r/Hardwareswap). Mike developed a passion for buying and selling PC hardware and helping his community get access to hard-to-get hardware. In Summer 2021, he decided to launch an eBay store in hopes of gaining access to new customers and expanding his business.
Taking baby steps, Mike learned the trade and worked hard to develop strong, reliable relationships with customers and distributors alike. After a while, Mike began to set his sights on launching a website and the concept of Gamertech was born.
After months of painstaking work almost every single night and weekend (despite a day job working 50 to 60 hours a week), and many episodes involving sleepless nights, setbacks, and wanting to give up, Gamertech.shop was finally launched.
Cool story bro, but pulling at the heart strings isn't going to get you anywhere. Why I should feel comfortable giving you my money?
Customers should be wary of new online stores, especially when it comes to PC hardware like GPUs. There are countless examples of new online stores using questionable practices to sell components or even scamming unwitting victims who let their guards down at the thought of getting access to high-demand hardware at below-market prices.
Before purchasing anything from a new online store, a customer should aiways ask themselves "can I trust these people?"
Mike, Gamertech.shop's founder, is acutely aware of the current situation plaguing the gamer and PC enthusiast community and was heavily involved in spotting and helping people through their experiences with scammers. Mike helped many avoid "The Great Kwest Scam of 2021," and helped many ohers who were swept up in it. It all played out on the Kwest Megathread in the r/graphicscard sub-Reddit and the (Kwest)ing for a GPU Discord. As a mod of the Kwest Discord (RigNoob), he coined the slogan "It's the Kwest, not the Destination."
Alright man, why can't you just answer the question, you insufferable !%*#!
Sorry, we get a little excited at the opportunity to tell our story--perhaps we'll save the rest for another time. Here's why you should trust Gamertech.shop.
Before the site was launched, Gamertech.shop's eBay store achieved "Top Seller" status on eBay. According to eBay, being Top Rated means "You're one of the best sellers on eBay, providing an exceptional quality of customer service as well as meeting minimum sales requirements for the Top Rated Seller level."
Achieving and maintaining this Top Rated Seller status means meeting an extremely high bar that looks at a combination of the following metrics:
- Defect rate
- Cases closed without seller resolution
- Late shipment rate
In just over 6 months (August through February 2022), GamerTech.shop sold over 600 items on eBay and received over 150 positive feedback reviews, with just 1 negative feedback review. The negative review was left despite a full refund being issued for a new, sealed motherboard that was reportedly dead on arrival.
In any case, Gamertech.shop's founder is all about exercising vigiliance and diligence when deciding where to do business and encouraging his customers do the same. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns and thanks for visiting Gamertech.shop.
