Amazon Preorders

Recommended Posts

Looks like Amazon have changed their preorder policy according to people on Era who have been talking to customer services. If something is coming out within 5 days then you will be charged immediately, if not you will be charged 5 days after you place the order regardless of when it comes out.

Looks like I won’t be using them anymore for big preorders.

I haven't used them in a while for preorders because they kept screwing me over and not getting my items to me on release day.

It's a scummy move taking people's money well before the item is being released or the order being processed.

The people on Era were only talking about gaming stuff but I would expect everything. As far as I know though it doesn’t apply to pre-existing preorders.

I've been trying to buy less from Amazon so this just further makes me want to buy elsewhere. I don't buy games from them unless there's a good deal, they tend to ship late and have sent the wrong item in the past. They seemed to have a lot of issues getting Switch games late.

I hope Amazon Japan don't also adopt this though as I use them for imports.

I tend to preorder consoles from Amazon as I haven’t had a problem yet but this will make me switch to another site. Preordered games I always get from Simply or Games Collection so I’m ok there.

Only preorder I have with Amazon at the moment is the Mega Drive Mini and that was just in case I wanted it closer to launch. Won’t be able to do that kind of thing anymore (which I assume is one of the reasons they’ve implemented this).
