Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".
Questions or concerns? Contact Steve ... just drop an email to: forum.gwtwkites@gmail.com

you really going to give you credit card info to someone with that URL? really? REALLY? c'mon! i mean really!

just at a glance, it's digital downloads only, no tech support, and no physical address, phone number, or email address for contact. the graphics they have at the bottom of their page from pricegrabber, cnet, and the bbb aren't linked to their profiles on those sites.

could be legit, but too many red flags for my dollar.

Despite their claims they are not listed with the BBB.  Mostly sites that accurately display that badge, generally have it as a live link.  Alarms should be going off in your head and that of your dog ("But, Davey....").
