Hi, First of all sorry if this is posted in the wrong section, i am currently new to this forums. As the title implies I just needed some information about the Challenge Simark feature. Does the product need to be in stock at Simark, or can I send them a link ( eg: overclockers uk )? Will they bring it to malta? And is the smart card accepted on this feature? Thanks =]

I don't think it needs to be in stock, as long as the product will be restocked. 

If the product you want is not on their webiste, I don't think you can use the feature. Not sure if that is what you are asking.

Smart card is accepted on most items.

Oh ok, So I cant challenge them with this motherboard http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=MB-541-AS seeing that it is not on their website. I guess i'll have to settle with the Asus Sabertooth then.

The point of challenge simark is not that they order items from abroad but, to check with their sources in order to get you a better price. The where it came from will not matter if it comes cheaper. At least I don't haha

I've ordered a number of times and the items I submitted for quoting were never on the Simark site but instead I found them on overclockers. They always quoted them anyway and they were always cheaper then the item+shipping. Plus, you get local warranty. So you can't lose.

You're right. i was just contacted by Simark and the offered price was better than OC UK. I am greatly impressed.

I challenged simark for the OCZ Vertex 4 256GB SSD on OC UK, from ocuk it was 245 euros with shipping and on th website it was listed about 300 euros, I got a quote for 225 euro, but I asked what would I need to do to get that price if I go to the shop my self when they get it (since it is not listed as in stock) he told me to leave a deposit. Now will the deposit be an additional charge or will it be reduced from the 225? Sorry im new to this as I have never tried the "Challenge simark" before.

Exactly. You go to the shop and pay the deposit for the ordered item. Then when the item arrives, you pay the outstanding balance.
