How Do Pre-Orders Work at Akibashi?
Pre-ordering an item that has a future release date ensures and guarantees your order for that particular item. That means you have safely secured that product even if it goes out of stock.
The reason pre-ordering exists is because of the very high demand for particular figures, especially some Nendoroids released by Good Smile Company. The amount of months between manufacturers announcing an action figure to the point of release date can span quite a few months, so it is rather important that if you really want a particular figure or merchandise, you may want to consider securing that item early to ensure that you do not miss out in the future and regret it!
We do require on pre-order items that full payment needs to be made at the point of purchase when you add to cart and checkout, but Akibashi ensures and 100% guarantees to fulfil your pre-order no matter what the circumstances are; we already have the figures secured on our end so you should not experience any issues in missing out on pre-order merchandise. Also, we will never ask you to pay anything extra if the price of the pre-order item goes up; that would be hideously unfair and impractical. Whatever price you paid for the pre order item will stay that way!
Now with pre-order items, release dates can change due to manufacturers changing the dates or wholesalers may have delays within their deliveries. We make sure to keep you updated on any changes to your pre-order and ensure that if any issues may arise, we will let you know as soon as possible!
