How can you tell is the switches on Amazon are PCB-mount or not?

I have contacted the seller before and purchased Gaterons from them, they only carry plate mount switches.

I'm glad this was mentioned. I'm planning to replace the switches on my Spyder, which is plate-mounted. I guess I'll go with Amazon, and save $3 and a couple months of waiting.

They are all plate mountable. They all have the clips that hold onto the plate.
PCB mount has additional plastic pins sticking out the bottom that help anchor them to the PCB. So you can use them without a plate.
You may have a plate and have PCB mount switches.

The keyboard he is referring to is a Lolita Spyder, it is plate mount and will not accept PCB mount switches unless you cut off the extra pins. I have the same keyboard.
