    I pre-order a SCDS2 this morning but while I was putting my DebitCard information in, my internet connection went off! I re-connected to the internet and refresh the page!
    I put the DebitCard information again! I recieved a PayPal email that I send $39.95 to Chinese name (Shoptemp)! My order ID was the description of what I brought! I had another email that was recieve before my paypal email, That said "Your order requires payment before it can be finalized. Details on how to pay are shown below." I check my status on my account and it said "This order is marked as Awaiting Payment", Than it redirect me to paypal to pay it again! I waited to see if that will go away later! Now it 16 hour later and the status is still awaiting payment! My shoptemp account info is different than the Paypal info! The address is the same but since I used my mom Debit Card she enter her email and name for the billing info! So why is my status still awaiting payment, was it because my internet went off or my information was different! What should I do!

    There
    useless-obsessive use of "!" !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Anyway,its only pre-order,it wouldn't be reasonable or legit to get the payment without shipping the item itself!

    correct me if I'm wrong!

    I think you are wrong. You pay for it before its shipped. That is what a pre-order is. You pay for it and when it is available, you receive it. I pre-ordered mine days ago using paypal and I have paid for it, now I wait until it is in stock then it will be shipped to me.

    There
    I checked my order,its "Awaiting fulfillment"

    Also what you said was practically what I said,just a little vague.What I meant was when it was in stock then the payments would be transferred and shipped

    EDIT:grammar checked,transferred not transfered

    You are stating that you pay for it when its in stock. I am stating that you pay for it when you order it. For example, I ordered a SCDS2 on Fridayish and it was paid for at that time. Now, I have to wait until it is in stock to be sent to me.

    yes what lolzed said is correct they aren't going to take your money before they even get the items. If you order from a store like Walmart on their website they wont take your money until your item is shipped...preordering online is different from walking into a store and giving them 5$ to reserve your copy...it's just placing your order so that you are guaranteed one when they do arrive but unless its a crooked website they wont take your money until its time for it to be shipped...

    There is about a 13 hour difference due to the timezone difference. If you ordered it in the morning, they are probably not even awake yet, meaning your going to be waiting all day before someone opens the shop and processes your order. Hong Kong isn't in the same timezone as you.

    Learn to wait. If it was like 24 hours and your order wasn't processed, then you can scream and shout and panic all you want.

    lol that sucks websites arent supposed to charge you for an item until they actually have it then ship it...what happens if they never get the item then they have to go and refund everyone their money and if they don't people are going to be very pissed lol...
