  • How do preorders work, and what happens if my order is delayed?
    • Many times we offer products for sale before they are released by the manufacturer. If you purchase one of these items, payment is required at the time the order is placed. If there are other items on the order, we will not ship the entire order until the preorder product comes out. If an item is listed as a preorder item , it means the item is not yet available and we are taking advance orders. The quantity available and ‘In Stock’ notation displays the amount we have left based on our current order with the supplier.

    • Orders that contain preorder will ship out in one shipment when your order is 100% in-stock, unless requested otherwise in writing by the buyer.
  • What does "Subject to Allocation" mean?
    • Allocation is when a distributor or supplier can not fulfill the requested amount ordered.
    • Ex. We order 1000 units from our distributor, but they can only fill 600 units because the demand is so high of a specific product.
    • All preorders are subject to allocation based on distributor availability.
    • In the event that a products has been allocated by our distributor we will fill orders as FIFO (First in, First Out, normally in "waves") any remaining orders once all "waves" are complete will have the option to wait until we receive more product or to receive a full refund after waves and additional allocations have been fully completed. We will notify buyers via the notification method chosen at checkout to request their desired choice of action as stated above.
    • Items that are purchased as a Pre-Order are expected to ship by the product's official release date.
    • Pre-Ordered items will not be subject to cancellation by ThePokeNest for reasons of inventory issues or market price changes.
    • No refunds or cancellations or on pre-order items after wave breakdowns are communicated to customers.
  • Are your products official? Do you weigh cards? Are your cards real?
    • ThePokeNest is serious when selecting where we source our cards. We are partnered with Southern Hobby Supply (a Pokemon Company distributor), and we only source directly from Pokemon authorized distributors. All of our merchandise is 100% original, licensed and un-tampered. 
    • I have a card collection, do you buy cards?
      • Yes we do, please send us a list of your cards with the condition (mint, played, heavily played, etc.) for each through our "contact us" form or our email. We will contact you to ask for more details within 24-48 hours.
