POPnBeards Online Store Policies
POPnBeards Online Store Policies
By purchasing from POPnBeards.com, you are showing that you understand and agree to the following terms, services and policies.
- A Pre-Order is an Order You Place for a Product Before That Product is Physically Released to Any Stores or Shops. This can also be a product that we do not physically have in our warehouse at the time of purchase. You are paying for something that we will obtain for you at a later date.
- All Pre-Orders Are Charged to Your Card/Account at The Time Your Order Is Placed. This is done before the projected date the actual product is scheduled to ship from our supplier - we receive that item to our warehouse, we ship your order and you receive your item. After 24 hours, we cannot offer cancellation of a pre-order for any reason. For instance “What if a store gets the item(s) I ordered, before you, and I bought those instead?” Your order will still be shipped to you. We base the size of our orders placed with the supplier on the number of pre-orders we get in advance.
- All Pre-Orders Are Final with No Exceptions. We cannot be held responsible for products that arrive later than expected for any reason. “What if other stores have them in-stock already?” No refunds will be offered for any item that is not yet in-stock. Be careful when placing your orders with different pre-order items and bundles. If you place an order for a bundle, it is not uncommon for bundled items to arrive at different dates. Any person who files a chargeback against us for any reason will have a lifetime ban from ordering with/from us. No exceptions.
- Every Order Placed Will Ship Together (Single Box). We recommend purchasing pre-orders and in-stock items separately. Additionally, smaller (number of items) orders will have a better chance at arriving to you depending on projected release dates on pre-orders. We will ship orders to you once the final item arrives to us no matter the date. We will not combine or change orders once they have been placed for any reason. “What if I want to add an item to my order that has already been placed?” The order cannot be changed.
- We Ship From North Carolina (Warehouse) 5 Days Per Week. Our warehouse DOES NOT ship or operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Your patience is appreciated. Once we ship your package, you will be notified via email. Check your spam folder.
- Expect Most In-Stock Items to be Shipped Within 1-5 Business Days. This timeframe does not apply if your order contains pre-orders or custom items.
- Custom Items can be shipped to you by the artist or company that created them or by us. Shipping times may be extended if we are not shipping said custom items. Your patience is appreciated.
- Email Notifications Will Be sent For Any Shipped/Orders. This is an auto-activated system which is initiated once we apply a shipping label.
