When will my pre-order ship?
Release dates can be subject to change. The dates on the product pages will usually be up-to-date, however delayed adjustments are possible. Please check the manufacturers website for the most up to day information.
For figurines and merchandise, we will generally ship your pre-order within 3-5 days after the release date, this is down to the volume of stock coming in, and the time to check all stock to ensure no damages etc.
For video games, pre-orders are dispatched in time for the game to be delivered on the release date.
You will receive an automated email with tracking information once your order ships.
If you have not received an email with your tracking number 7 working days after the advertised release date, please contact us on email@example.com
Why is no one answering the phone?
Gamersheek is ran by myself, I try to answer all calls however this may not always be possible.
Our preferred method of contact is email and I will always respond to emails within 3 working days.
If your matter is urgent and your call has not been answered, please leave a voicemail with your contact number and any relevant information and we will get back to you asap.
Please note that our stores are ran independently and will not have answers to any questions regarding online orders.
Why is no one answering my emails?
We normally reply to all emails within 48 hours of receipt, however in rare instances, we may need to await information from a supplier or alternative source, this may lead to a delay in receiving a reply from ourselves. If you have not heard from us within 3 working days feel free to send another email.
Our website customer service hours are Monday - Friday 10am to 4pm.
Why is my order status "Pending Payment"?
If your order is in stock, the status of your order will remain "Payment Pending" until our team process the payment, this can be anything from 5 minutes to the next working day, this is due to the manual processing of card transactions.
If the order is a pre-order the "Pending Payment" status will remain until a member of our team pre-authorises your card with a 1p transaction, this 1p is then refunded, this will allow us to charge your payment method when your pre-order is ready to ship.
If your order status is still "Pending Payment" after 7 days please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
What does the "Payment Failed" status mean?
Unfortunately we don't have any control over your credit or debit card being authorised or declined.
We use a 3rd party payment processor called Opayo (formerly SagePay).
Cards can be declined for various reasons from the wrong details being entered to your card issuer deeming the transaction suspicious.
If your order status is "Payment Failed" please reach out to your card issuer before contacting ourselves.
In this section you will find information about any shipping delays:
Good Smile Company have recently relocated their warehouse from Hong Kong to an area in China, this has caused a massive delay in the couriers being able to collect from this part of China, we are experiencing severe delays in our shipments arriving please email - email@example.com with your order number if you would like an update, we are unable to email every customer with the sheer volume of products affected.
Gamersheek are currently experiencing a high volume of orders, this has impacted our warehouse and we are experiencing a 3-4 day additional delay in dispatching orders.
If your order is urgent please bare this delay in mind.
If you need any further help please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

What payment methods are accepted at Gamersheek?
We accept a wide range of payment methods:
Gamersheek Gift Vouchers
All orders will be charged in British Pounds.
If you need any further support please contact us: email@example.com
When Do I Pay for a Pre-Order?
This depends on your payment method, if you pre-order using PayPal, Android or Apple Pay the payment is taken in full at the point of purchase, this is because we cannot charge these methods at a later date.
If you pre-order using a credit or debit card, you will not be charged until the item is ready to ship from the suppliers warehouse, this can be anything up to 3 weeks before the release date, a 1p charge is taken within 3 days of a pre-order, this is refunded, this allows us to authenticate and authorise your card, this allows us to charge the card at a later date.
If for some reason we are unable to authenticate and authorise your card either at the point of pre-order or the point of the product being released, we will send you an email advising of this, you will be advised that we will try again within 2 working days, if the 2nd attempt is not successful, the order will be cancelled and the stock will be released.
When will my pre-order ship?
Gamersheek aim to ship new arrivals within 3-5 working days of the products arriving, although delays are possible. Please check our Status Update page for any additional delays in regards to shipping.
Release dates are subject to change and can change at very short notice, the dates on the product pages are generally correct, however delayed amendments are possible. Please check the manufacturers website(s) for the most up-to-date accurate information.
Do Gamersheek offer pre-order bonuses?
Some items may be announced with Pre-Order Bonuses, information about these bonuses or their quantities and availability are provided by the manufacturer and might differ from the initial information provided. In cases of pre-order bonuses, these will be supplied on a first come first serve basis.
For Example, Nintendo may offer a steel book case with purchase, unfortunately these are never given on a 1:1 basis, so these pre-order bonuses will be given on a first come first serve basis.
Can I cancel my pre-order?
Yes of course, you can! All you have to do is send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the Email Title: Gamersheek Order (insert order reference here) Cancellation.
We will pick this up and normally cancellations are done within 24-48 hours.
Did we also mention unlike other retailers we do not charge "Restocking Fees", or "Cancellation Fees" we believe that retailers that do this are acting unprofessionally and taking your money for the "inconvenience of hitting a few buttons" to cancel an order.
We know that retailers charge anything from 3.5% to 10%, Gamersheek have not nor will we ever charge a customer for cancelling pre-orders!
Availability & Pricing
Items with an Add to Cart button are usually available and will normally ship within 24-48 hours of the order being placed.
In certain cases, items may be displayed as in stock and available, while they are in fact sold out or a stock error, if this happens you will be contacted directly.
For UK customers, the price you see is the price you pay, there are no additional charges, we offer FREE UK SHIPPING on all orders.
Can I order pre-orders and in-stock items on the same order?
Yes you can.
Add all your items to the basket, and when you reach the checkout, there is a button as shown below that says "Dispatch Items As They Become Available"
This will split the basket into release date and create subsequent orders on our system.
If you have not selected "Dispatch Items As They Become Available" the system will combine all products into one order, the warehouse will not be advised to pick any items that are in-stock if the order is combined with a pre-order, we can split the order down manually after the order is placed, however this does cause some confusion with orders and it may make your entire order look complete, this is not the case but due to the warehouse system integrations, the orders will look complete, however the warehouse system does know that there are outstanding orders and they will be fulfilled when the products come into stock.
I Can't See A Product On Your Site, Can You Get It?
Gamersheek are always adding new products, however we may miss a new pre-order or a new release item. If you are looking for something in particular please just send us a link of the product from either the manufacturer's website or another retailers website and we will do our best to source it and list it on our site as soon as possible.
Can I change my address?
The billing address and default delivery address can be updated on your account page.
If you need to update the shipping address of a current order, you will need to email email@example.com.
Please ensure that you double check the address before placing an order, as the address cannot be changed after the order has been shipped.
