FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
How long will it take to process my order?
Orders are processed on a first come, first serve basis. We will make every effort to make sure orders are processed as soon as possible, and no unnecessary delays occur in processing an order. In most cases orders are processed immediately, often shipping the same day for in-stock items.
During busy periods, delays may occur. All orders will be processed no later than 1-2 business days upon receipt, provided the items are in stock and there are no problems with the payment verification. Items are allocated to your order when your order is being processed and after your payment has been verified, so on rare occasions stock may change by the time an order is being processed.
Once an order request has been received by us, you will receive periodic e-mails from us regarding the processing of your order. Within 24 hours of your order being shipped, you will receive an e-mail that contains the carrier tracking number for your order.
How do I know if a product is in stock?
The ComputerCity.com website has an interactive shopping cart that allows you to only order items that are in stock. Items with an 'Add To Cart' button on the item page are available and in stock for purchase.
Items that are OUT OF STOCK will be marked with an Out Of Stock notification and an option to opt-in your email address to be notified when the item comes back in stock.
While every effort is made to insure that availability and stock status is accurate, we cannot be responsible for inaccuracies published on the web site as they are dependant on supplier accuracy and information along with inventory fluctuations.
I just placed an order for an item that is out of stock. When will I be charged for it?
You will be charged for a backordered item upon order processing. After your order for an out of stock product is submitted, we will notify you of its anticipated delivery date. Any in stock products from your order will be shipped right away. For items that are backordered, you will receive periodic reminders of back ordered items and you will be given an opportunity to cancel any outstanding back orders with us.
In the event the product is unavailable, or if you wish to cancel the back ordered item before it is shipped, you will be issued a refund using the same method of payment you used to place the order, or a credit note. Please allow up to 2 to 4 business days for refunds to be processed.
How long does it take for back ordered items to get sent?
Items that are unavailable will be placed on back order, and the remainder of your order will be shipped. Please check our web site for the back ordered item's estimated time of arrival. Please note that these dates are estimates and not guaranteed to arrive on that date.
For items that are backordered, you will receive periodic reminders of back ordered items and you will be given an opportunity to cancel any outstanding back orders with us.
Where possible, we will make every effort to alert customers of potential delays, or possible substitutions to the originally ordered item (such as a video card or RAM with similar specifications).
