A pre-ordered item will ship either when it’s released or just in advance of its release, and your card will typically not be charged until the item has shipped or a few days beforehand.
Do you get charged for pre orders?
A: You will not be charged at the time you place the pre-order. Only when your item ships will your credit card be charged. If you order additional items along with your pre-order, you will be charged for each item as it ships.
How do pre orders work?
A pre-order is an order placed for an item that has not yet been released. Pre-orders allow consumers to guarantee immediate shipment on release, manufacturers can gauge how much demand there will be and thus the size of initial production runs, and sellers can be assured of minimum sales.
Does pre order charge immediately?
Get your pre-order incentives. If you used account credit only to pre-order your game, your balance will be taken immediately. If you used a credit card, or split your payment between credit card and account balance, you will be charged around 10 days before the game launches.
Can you pre order without money?
By no means, though, can you delay the order for your money. You either have it or you don’t. You should have ordered at a store where they can hold it for you a few days. Contact the seller and see if they can hold it.
How long should a pre order last?
Keep the timelines short
Pre-orders work best if the customer doesn’t have to wait too long. A week to two months is considered a good timeline for most products. Once you start pushing three months to a year, customers run the risk of losing interest or forgetting about the order.
