Pre-Order Policy Products that have not yet been released by the manufacturer or products that are backordered with the manufacturer can be purchased from Visual Apex as a "pre-order". When placing a pre-order, we will take all information from the customer - including billing information - as if placing an order for an in-stock product. However, we will not charge for pre-order products (excluding accessories) until the product is available to ship out. When the product is available, we will contact the customer to confirm their order and get approval to charge.
Customers purchasing accessories with a pre-order item or accessories that are themselves in a pre-order status will be charged for those accessories when the order is placed. The customer can request to have accessories shipped out promptly or wait to ship with their pre-order product when it becomes available. Customers will be notified if an accessory item is backordered and given the option to continue with the order or cancel the order with no penalty.
If the price of the pre-order product(s) should decrease, the customer will be charged the current price at the time of their approval to charge. If the price of the pre-order product(s) should increase, the customer will be charged the price of the product(s) on the date and time the pre-order was placed. Once the order has been charged, normal price protection policies apply.
Visual Apex does not charge a fee for pre-orders beyond the price of the product, shipping charges and any applicable taxes. If a pre-order is cancelled, the customer will not be charged any "holding" or "processing" fees.
All pre-orders are contacted in the order in which they are received. Visual Apex does not offer preferential service - at a fee or otherwise - for customers to move ahead on a pre-order list.
Errors on Our Site Visual Apex makes every effort to provide as current and accurate product information as is available to us from manufacturers and distributors. Product information from manufacturers and/or distributors is subject to change at any time. Visual Apex reserves the right to update information on our website at any time without notice.
Information on this website regarding product, features, services and manufacturers - including pricing, availability, shipping and special offers - may include typographical errors, omissions or inaccuracies. These errors will be corrected upon discovery. Visual Apex reserves the right to refuse or cancel any order based on an incorrect price or offer whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has been charged and the order cancelled by Visual Apex, we will issue a full credit to the credit card used. Length of time for the issued credit to appear in your account is based on your individual bank or card issuer. If you are not fully satisfied with your product purchase, you may return it as per usual Visual Apex return policies.
Price Protection Sudden price drops are unforeseen and, in most cases, manufacturer driven. Due to this fact, we are unable to extend price protection to the products we sell. We hope that you feel secure in the knowledge that on the day you purchased your products from Visual Apex, you paid a competitive price from an authorized, five-star dealer who will stand by you and the products we sell.
