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 before 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.

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 £100 each minute you're over... at least it'll feel like that.

They'll figure it out when they realise they are hundreds of £ out of pocket

Hell, EBuyer sent me 2 x PC Cases when I only ordered one, I kept quite and a week or so later they emailed me saying "Either give it back, or pay for it"

I gave it back

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 :)
