Note: By placing any "Stack" order with TFSource, you agree to the below Stack Policies.
Q: What is Stack?
TFsource's Order Stacking service allows you to create one stack, or as we like to call it an "open order". Once created, you can continuously add preorder or instock merchandise to your "stack" which saves you on shipping!
Q: What is needed to start my stack?
All you need to do to start a stack is have at least one preorder item in your cart when you checkout. You cannot start a stack with just instock merchandise in your cart.
- A credit card on file is required to start your stack, TFsource accepts all major credit cards and Paypal for payment for stack orders
- Only "Pay Later" orders are eligible for stack, you cannot "pay now" on any stack orders
- At any time you can log into stack manager from "My Source" and select any combination of instock items, and have them ship out by generating an instock order
- Once all items are instock in your stack, an order will automatically be generated and your credit card will be charged
- Preorder items in your stack can be canceled at any time! Simply log in to Stack Manager in My Source and select the preorder items you would like to cancel.
- Instock items in your stack cannot be canceled.
- Customers have a limit on how many items they can stack, based on their past purchase history with TFsource. This prevents customers from continually adding to their stack and not paying.
- Instock stacked items will be held for up to 180 days. After this they will automatically ship out and you will be charged for them. The TFsource team will contact you friendly reminder before they ship.
Stack ON ⁄ Stack OFF in My Source:
- Automatically in checkout your default option will be Stack On. However in checkout you can easily change your order to non-stack, - so don't worry!
- The "Add to Stack" button will automatically appear on preorder products. This makes it easy to add more preorders to your stack! With just two clicks, you don't even need to go through checkout to add items to your stack!
- Automatically in checkout your default option will be Stack Off and orders will be placed as normal, not automatically adding to your stack nor will your default preorder start your stack if you don't have one already going. However in checkout you can easily change your order to stack - so don't worry!
Q: Where on the site do I need to go to start my stack?
In checkout in "Billing & Shipping" look for Stack Order
Best of all, once you have started a stack, you just need to click Add to Stack button on any preorder item, to add it to your existing stack! The add to stack button will show up anytime you are logged into my source, have a stack order already placed and visit any preorder item!
Q: What if I get tired of waiting and want an instock item on my STACK to ship out now?
As long as you are logged into my source, and click on the Stack Manager tab you can have any of your instock items ship out at any time! With stack, if one item is delayed, no need to keep waiting! Simply go into the TFsource Ship Manager in My Source and select the items from your stack you want to ship out on a new order now, click Ship My Order, and an order it automatically created for you! No more pesky manufacturer's delays will keep you from getting your much wanted figures!
Q: Stack seems great! Any TIPS or words of ADVICE from the TFSource Team?
Why yes, we're glad you asked! Here are our tips to you:
Be aware of product delays – manufacturer's delays are very common, and one item in a stack set as a preorder still, will keep your whole stack from automatically shipping
- Check product release dates frequently – they often change
- If you can't wait any longer, just spend the extra on separate shipping and have everything you want to ship now on a separate order. With the TFsource Shipping Manager it makes it easy!
- Be aware that once a stack order is fully instock, your credit card will be charged – TFsource is willing to hold your figures for months without payment, but once everything is instock, we won't hold your stack in our warehouse any longer and we will charge your card. Since product delays are common, a February release can become April, so budget accordingly and make sure to keep enough funds on your card to cover your stack if you know everything in it will be instock soon
- There is a no cancellation policy on instock stack items – Make sure you really want to commit to your purchase when adding instock items to your stack or when preorder items come instock. All instock items in your stack are a commit to purchase. If you run into a big problem the best thing to do is contact the TFSource team early, and we can work with you on a payment plan, or other options. Just don't let it happen all the time.
