Pre-ordering is a transaction in ToyArena.com that lets our customers order a product that is not yet in-stock and will be available in the future. Pre-order products are usually items that are in demand, hard to find and hard to get, usually in very limited quantities.
How is the Pre-Order list fulfilled?
Pre-orders are filled on a first come, first serve priority basis in the order of prioritization by date of the transaction.
Are pre-orders paid now or charged later?
Pre-orders can be "pre-paid" or "billed later" depending on the payment processor you choose. Paying now or later do not have any effect on the priority of the pre-order list since we deliver and fulfill orders based on the date the order has been placed. The earlier an order is made the higher you are on our priority delivery and fulfillment list.
- Pay Later - Use Authorize.net to reserve and place your order. Your credit card will be billed or charged once the item your pre-ordered has arrived, in-stock and ready for delivery to you.
- Pay Now or Pre-Paid - Use Paypal to pay now and reserve your order.
Shipping cost of Pre-Order Items
Pre-orders are assigned a fair and best estimate of the product packaged shipping weight. There are instances, although very rare, that the difference of the estimated weight to the actual weight matters in as much as a few dollars which may increase or decrease the shipping cost. In such cases, we will contact you as necessary to let you know if any additional shipping cost is necessary to be paid if you ordered and pre-paid. For pay later pre-orders, we will adjust the shipping cost accordingly to the shipping weight of your order.
Combining a Pre-Order to In-stock Items
At this time, a Pre-Order cannot be combined with an in-stock item in one purchase transaction. The reason for this is we ship available items to you immediately without waiting for the pre-order item, which will increase the cost of shipping if we have to ship to you twice. Please order items marked as PRE-ORDER Status on its own so we can avoid delays on processing your orders.
How do I know if an item is in Pre-Order status?
Items in the Pre-Order status are marked so in the products detail page of the item. It will be visible to you in red color text above the "Add to Cart" button.
Do you give any guarantee that I will receive my order?
