An in-stock product is any product that we currently have in-stock in our warehouse ready for shipment.
A ‘Preorder’ is any product that we do not currently have in stock but that we have pre-ordered with our suppliers. For more information refer to our Preorder and Kickstarer policy.
While we endeavour to list the expected arrival date from our suppliers (on the product page) for all preorder products, we unfortunately cannot guarantee when preorders will arrive. Upon arrival we aim to ship out all preorders within 24 hours of receipt into our warehouse.
To pre-order one of our pre-order products simply place an order for products marked as ‘preorder’ products as normal.
Yes, however, we recommend separating preorder products and in-stock products onto different orders as orders containing preorder products will not ship or be available for pickup until every product on your order has arrived in our warehouse. For more information please refer to our Preorder and Kickstarter policy.
Yes, requests to cancel your pre-order will be accepted up until your order is ready to ship. Once your pre-order has arrived and is ready to ship, your order status will change from 'processing' to shipped and you will be provided a tracking number. At this stage, cancellations are no longer possible. Please refer to our Preorder and Kickstarter policy for more specifics on the process.
A backorder is any product that is currently out of stock on our webstore and that we do not currently have a pre-order with our suppliers. Backordered products do not have an estimated restock date.
Products listed as ‘out of stock’ are unavailable for backorder. At More Than Meeples, we believe in only selling products that we either have ‘in-stock’ or that we have an active pre-order with our suppliers. If you are interested in ordering a product that is currently not in stock, send us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to source the product for you as soon as possible.
If you would like us to try and source a game for you that isn’t on our website please reach out to us at email@example.com and we will do our best to see what we can do.
At More Than Meeples, we check every game that arrives from our suppliers for damage prior to shipping out for your peace of mind. If a game arrives to our warehouse with box damage, our suppliers provide us with varying amounts of credit depending on the severity of the damage. In 99% of the cases, damage is merely cosmetic and does not affect game components. As such we discount these games based on the credit provided to us by our suppliers. Effectively, we can sell you a perfectly good game (with a bit of box damage) for a reduced rate!
