I"ve added a section at the bottom of the post with links to various shops around the world. What am I missing? What are the biggest shops in Europe? Let me know and I'll add them to the thread.

Also, you have any other suggestions to make, please post them here.
You forgot to add speedcubing.org for a good store in the UK.

You forgot

shameless self-promotion incoming
How was that self promo? I was promoting the best UK cube store, not myself. Shameless self-promo incoming If I was going to promote myself I would say something like:

"You forgot to add speedcubing.org to the best stores in the UK to buy from, oh, and make sure to add 'use code "OWEN" for 5% off your order.'"

True, but there's no way I could just let him get away with plugging a store from outside his country that he happens to be sponsored by.
Right now the list of places to buy from has nothing in the UK, @pjk asked us to let him know if there is a store he missed.

He also asked specifically for a cube store in Europe.

Anyone knowledgeable on the new Gan i V2? I'm looking to purchase my first smartcube and this is at $75 so I'm wondering if it's the best currently.
I don't know anything about the V2, but the V1 is a great cube, rivaling my main, the smart part of it is sometimes inaccurate, but I don't know if that is the app/ website ot the cube itself.

I assume that the V2 will be better than the V1, so you should probably get the V2.

I don't think that the hardware needs an upgrade, the software needs an upgrade. Thankfully we have much better 3rd party programs but the gan app needs to be better.

somewhere on the complex plane.
Im planning on splerging for a bunch of cubes. My budget is $50, most of which is taken because I want a tengyun V2, and I want to get a squan. Any recommendations? Also, does anyone else have much expirience with buying from a different country than the store your buying from? I have no clue how long shipping wil take, normally I ship to the US and pick up the cubes when I visit, but obviously I'm not going to a diff country anytime soon. (I live in southern Mexico if any of yall didnt know.)
