6.2   When you place a Pre-order you will need to pay the full upfront price of the goods.

6.3   Pre-orders are particularly important for limited release items, as sometimes we may presell out of an item, so pre-ordering will be the only way to ensure you can buy that item.

6.4   You can tell if an item is a pre-order item by looking on the Stock Update page on this website. It is your responsibility to check these updates on a regular basis.

6.5   Estimated times of arrival are subject to change and beyond our control as we rely on others to provide the goods. Please keep this in mind if you are ordering for a particular date or occasion, as we cannot guarantee it will arrive on time.

6.6   Orders for Pre-order items must be placed separately to in-stock items. We will ship the in-stock items as quickly as possible, without you needing to wait for the Pre-order items. Pre-order items will be shipped to you separately, later on, when those items physically arrive in stock. Each order will incur its own shipping charges which will be made available to you at checkout.

7.   Price

7.1   The prices of goods, delivery and other charges are shown in Australian dollars and are inclusive of GST.

Gift cards are partially redeemable, and it is up to the cardholder to use the full value within the validity period. Any unused balance will not be refunded or credited when the gift card expires. When the cost of a purchase exceeds the available card balance, the cardholder will be required to make up the difference with an alternate form of payment. Gift cards should be treated like cash.

You will be left with a card in most cases with this information.

10.7   Where shipping is a no signature required service, this means that the courier will generally leave your order at the front door or letterbox.
