Yes, it is generally good practice to order arcade sticks from Amazon. However, there are caveats. For example, you need to take price into consideration. There may be cases in which an arcade stick is cheaper on Amazon than it is on the original manufacturer’s website.

You may even come across arcade sticks that come with different extra offerings depending on whether or not you order from Amazon. In other cases, a manufacturer may choose to sell only on Amazon.

Mayflash chooses to sell its bestseller, the Mayflash F300, only on Amazon despite having an official site. The same applies to other arcade sticks by Mayflash.

Otherwise, there may be other reasons that motivate you to buy on Amazon instead of directly from the source, such as your preference to go through Amazon’s customer service if need be. You may also have a Prime membership that you want to make the most out of. Also, you may prefer to keep record of all your purchases through one online retailer.

You may come across scenarios in which a given arcade stick is the same price on both Amazon and the manufacturer’s site. In this case, it all boils down to your personal preference, but take heed of any differences in shipping prices.
