 Pre-order items 

- Mixed orders

If your order includes a mixture of in stock and pre-order items, your order will be shipped together once the pre-order item(s) arrives. Should you wish for the in stock item(s) to be shipped first with the pre-order item to follow later once they arrive, additional shipping costs will be charged before we can ship the in stock items.

Essentially, if you would like the items shipped separately, they will be treated as separate orders for shipping purposes. If you would like the in stock item(s) to be shipped first, please either place a separate order for the in stock items, or let us know and we will issue you with an invoice for the additional shipping costs before we ship your item(s).

- Shipping date

Estimated shipping dates are provided for pre-order items but dates are subject to change depending on factors outside of our control. If you would like to cancel an order, if for example the shipping date has been extended, please email us on info@blindboxempire.com with details of your order number and request the pre order to be cancelled. Once an order has been shipped, we will not be able to cancel your order.
