What does "pre-order" mean?
Pre-order items are items that have been announced to be released and are currently in production or awaiting restock. Pre-ordering allows purchasing a product in earlier stage to guarantee acquisition of this product when it becomes available. Release or restock date is announced in the product description.
Regarding new album releases, pre-order does not mean you will receive the item before the official release date.
Are the pre-order products delivered to me on the release date?
We always try to get the pre-order products to our customers by the date of release. However, third party delays may sometimes occur and therefore we can't guarantee delivery dates for pre-orders. In case of a major delay (e.g. delay by the supplier, production schedule or force majeure), we will contact you by e-mail.
My order includes both pre-order, and in-stock products. Do you ship the in stock products first, and the pre-order products later?
Your entire order will be shipped as complete on the date determined by pre-order item. If you would like to receive the in-stock products earlier, please make two separate orders. If your order includes several pre-order items, order will wait until all pre-order items are in stock for the order to be sent as complete.
