Stormer does rock, but they are missing the boat on shipping options. Why can't they offer to ship stuff USPS Priority Mail, like everyone else?? UPS is a pain for me, and slow.

I wish they took PayPal, although I hate using it it's almost a necessity with eBay. Sometimes I'll empty my play money PP account with a Tower order but I'd much rather do it at Stormer, I purchased a few kits over the years through them and they are great.

Props here too. As about the only US source for Yokomo parts I have made quite a few Tuesday night orders and always received my stuff by Friday. Never once let me down.

Stormer will ship USPS priority if you call to ask, I've even ordered just a few small items and they automatically sent them USPS. But I know what you mean about having USPS on there checkout page, it should be there with todays internet customers. 2-3 day delivery vs 5-7 day UPS its a no brainer.

Why dont you just get the Paypal Debit Card? It's free from Paypal, you can use it like a Mastercard Debit Card because it takes the money right out of your Paypal Account. It's not a Credit Card, Debit only based on the funds in your account. You can also take the cash out instantly at an ATM. With this you can place all the Stormer orders you play money account can support

There is a reason why Stormer has been in business since 1986....

I bought some stuff from them way back then and they have been great ever since.

It all depends on the size of the box. USPS Priority offers free boxes and this is what it seems Stormer will use if your products will fit. The boxes are limited in size... so if you order something that doesn't fit.. it will go UPS.

Priority mail is max, 3 days to anywhere in the contiguous US... from Stormers location, UPS will be 2-4 days max. I usually get my small package USPS orders in 2 days to here in California.. If it is a bigger package via UPS it is usually 4 days.

Still pretty good and you can't beat their prices!

Stormer Rocks! I've bought all of my stuff from there. Smaller stuff comes USPS Priority Mail. Larger stuff comes UPS. Usually get everything within 3 days.

You don`t even need a Paypal debit card . Paypal has a plugin for your toolbar that you can generate a secure card and automatically fills in the info . I have a Paypal card but the plug in feature is just easier .


And yes , Stormer does rock !
