QUESTION OF THE WEEK
Q: I’m interested in making an order from your web shop but was wondering if you could confirm if payment was taken right away or when the product has been shipped?
For all orders (be for an in-stock item or a pre-order) payment is taken immediately after the order has been placed. (So make sure you have the funds ready when placing an order.) It’a a good moment to mention that we’re actually going to be adding an F.A.Q. section to our web shop shortly. Be on the lookout for that soon.
Here’s the list of upcoming events we’ll be attending in some capacity.
MCM Belfast Comic Con, 2nd-3rd May
