Question

Posted

So i ordered a new GB 7970 from them exactly 7 days ago, and payed for next day delievery. sure enough it arrived next day, however as of yet, no dosh has left my account. This item came straigh from their supplier, but I find it very strange that nothing has come off at 7 days later. normally it comes off before they despatch. below wording taken from their website.

It's our company policy to only take the payment from your credit card, debit card or chosen payment provider once your goods are about to be 'picked' and not when you place your order. On some occasions, we could instruct our suppliers to ship an item to you directly and this would be the only occasion when we take the funds from your card or payment provider [i]before[/i] having the goods in stock. Our suppliers attempt to ship the next working day, so you shouldn't see any difference or delays from the time the payment is taken to receiving your goods.[/size][/font][/color]

looks like it, just keep the money in your account for a couple of months atleast, not sure how much the amount is and if it would be damaging if you spent it and then got charged.

it's easily done, i once ordered 2 t-shirts from a store and was told payment would be taken later as systems were down, payment was never taken :)

They'll still take payment, most likely when your account has insufficiant funds.

Then the bank will bill you

Not sure about laws on the other side of the pond, but they can't legally do that here. Once its your hand, it's yours. They can ask for it back only out of the goodness of your own heart :p

I did wonder that myself too and it probably is the same here but I use eBuyer all the time, plus I had no use for the extra case at the time anyway :)

I would contact them and come clean unless you have enough money in your account for a third one - just in case!

Do you even have enough slots for a third one or are you going to sell it on? :p

you do realise they are entitled to with hold taking payment for upto 6 months.
a transaction has taken place and if the funds have not left his account this could be due to a billing error
they have proof that a transaction has taken place and payment info has been provided at the time of ordering so they will seek to take payment from him.

I took it to work and they sent a courier to collect it from there so not too bad :)

I wouldn't have been paying to send it back, "you want it, come get it" lol !

Be weary.
This happened to me too. I got the paperwork months afterwards saying it was out on courier but it was actually all for the one i'd already received.

If you used your debit card then its ear marked but not taken out your account. More than likely It will be taken at the end of the month. If you don't have sufficient funds your bank will pay it and you will be overdrawn and charged for it.
