I'm not going to list just the obvious ones (amazon, ebay), but a bit rarer ones. I'm a sucker for limited editions (Steel- and Mediabooks etc.), so I have some experience.


If a shops' name is bolded it means I've shopped there. And as a default service, shipping etc. has been A ok, unless otherwise noted.
Regarding payment methods and other information, I've only added stuff I know, if there's anything additional worth knowing, please tell us.
In many cases shipping (for example) to Germany, Austria and Switzerland is much cheaper than to the rest of Europe if the shop is situated in Germany. For example shipping inside Germany might be free if the store is Germany.
And I've assumed that if for example a shop's www address is beyondmedia.at, the shop is located in Austria. If you see any errors, disinformation let us know.
This is just to get the ball rolling, please tell us if you know of other good shops. IMHO It's no idea in listing shops that don't deliver outside their own country.
And if you've shopped in a shop that you'd like to tell us about, please also tell us if it something wasn't ok (regarding shipping, packing, service etc.). Or if something was better than ok, e.g. great packing, you got freebies etc. or something else worth praising.

For the german shops, you usually just ask to unlock FSK18 and they will ask you to send a scan of your ID card. If you are from abroad they are not so fussy. If you don't want to do this, use Austrian shops. I used to buy from a lot of shops in germany in the past but the last years I exclusively use OFDB.de which is not only a database but also a shop

I check OFDB almost every day, never used the shop though. Do you have to prove your age at the OFDB shop? I know you have to do something to see the pr0n titles.

Added El corte ingles (Spain). Accidentally ordered the same item twice and I've sent them two emails asking them to cancel the other one, but no response so far.

El corte ingles (Spain) has to have the worst service of them all. Getting a response is like pulling teeth from a chicken. And it's even harder to get any kind of help if you get the wrong item. Trust me, I tried emailing them and messaging through FB.
In the end I had to involve Paypal, that was the only way to get my money back. ECI has nonexistent customer service.

That has to be the bottom of the barrel, t-h-e worst service throughout the years I've spent collecting & ordering movies.

If anyone else has any shops they'd like to add to the list please tell us.

Medienversand has proven to be a reliable supplier. A bit slow the last time, but they have to wait for stuff from many suppliers, so it's understandable. Quite well packed and DHL delivered the parcel swiftly to my doorstep.
