My order was declined but I still see a charge?
When an order is received a temporary authorization (not a charge) is placed on your card. This transaction is usually reversed within 6-8 days but can take up to 30 days to be removed. Please note we are unable to tell why an order was declined, please contact your bank or credit card company directly for that information.

Some common causes for declines are:

• Billing address and name including middle initial does not match credit card statements
• Apartment number not on correct address line - should usually be on line 2
• Security code or expiration date not entered correctly
Why was I charged twice?
When an order is received a temporary authorization (not a charge) is placed on your card. This transaction is usually reversed within 6-8 days but can take up to 30 days to be removed.
Why was I charged if I did not place an order?
If you believe that you have been mistakenly charged, please contact us here so we can confirm that you did not place an order. If we find an order placed with your credit card that has not yet shipped, we will cancel it right away. If you suspect that your credit card was used without your authorization, please contact your bank to dispute the charges.
What is a “Temporary Authorization”?
A temporary authorization is an approved transaction that has not yet been posted to your account. It is not a charge to your account, however the amount of the transaction has been deducted from your available credit. Normally, a temporary authorization converts into a posted transaction and at that time your account will be charged, but if the merchant does not complete the transaction it will expire and the temporary authorization will be removed.

What countries do you ship to?

How much will duties and customs fees be for my order?
International orders may be subject to import taxes, duties and other customs charges. Unfortunately, there is no way we can tell how much these charges will be.

If your package is returned to our warehouse, we will contact you to discuss a resend or a refund. If you choose to be refunded after we contact you, please note that we are unable to refund your shipping costs for these items. We can only process a refund for the cost of the items themselves.

Pre-Orders

What is a pre-order?
Sometimes we are able to offer customers the option to pre-order items before they are released. This allows you to reserve the item before it is available for sale to the general public. Certain items sell out quickly and this helps ensure that you won’t miss out. You will be charged right away for your order but it could take a few weeks or more for your item to be available to ship.

For specific information on when a pre-ordered item will ship, please refer to the item’s description when placing your order.
If my pre-order also contains and item that is already in stock, will they ship separately?
We do not ship partial orders. Your entire order will ship when the pre-ordered item becomes available. If you wish to receive the available portion of your order immediately, please consider placing a separate order for the pre-order item(s).

For specific information on when a pre-ordered item will ship, please refer to the item’s description when placing your order.
When will I be charged for my pre-order?
We charge your card as soon as you checkout this allows us to reserve the pre-ordered item for you.

For specific information on when a pre-ordered item will ship, please refer to the item’s description when placing your order.
