I was organizing my video games the other day and came across an unopened Pokemon SoulSilver with Pokewalker Accessory in box. I looked up what an unopened box would be and to my surprise saw a range between 250 -350 dollars on Ebay.  I wanted to make sure this game stayed in brand new shape, so I searched Ebay for a box protector for this specific game. I actually found one there by a Ebay seller “retroprotection”.  I ordered the box protector for a reasonable price with shipping. I then went online to a retro gaming group and asked if there was a website that sold most retro game protective boxes and one gamer sent me the link for https://retroprotection.com/.  I come to find out that the Ebay seller and website are the same companies. When I logged into the website, I noticed right away all the different consoles that they offered for box protectors . US and Japanese. I then went on to order a few more case protectors for my Atari Lynx games, NES games and Super Nintendo game boxes. The prices were sold by individuals, packs of 5, 10, 50,100. A few days later the items were shipped out.  I was very impressed with the speedy shipping.  Then I checked my email and saw I had Paypal refunds of 1.20 and 1.58 for the company of RetroProtectors.  I was confused as I saw the item ship and the total was more than the 1.20 refund. I emailed the company just to find out and immediately got a response back from the owner saying that the shipping cost on the website was more than what it did cost to ship to me, and he refunded me the difference.  I was really impressed with that business practice and honesty. I am a full time customer now and will be ordering many more box protectors going forward from them. I really wanted to promote this website and spread the word for those who have not visited it yet.  I really recommend it.  Here is a bit about the company.

In order to give customers a cheaper option than Ebay we decided to create a website.   Our aim is to have our prices be at least 10% less than the prices on Ebay which keeps money in your pocket instead of in Ebays’.    We are big fans of Ebay and Paypal but the fees are really getting out of hand.
