Why can I only order 2 or 3 pieces of certain products?

Some items may only be ordered in limited quantities. Customers who repeatedly order these items excessively may have their orders cancelled at our discretion. We want all of our customers to have the chance to purchase hard to find inventory from us.

Does my Pro account from the store work on the website?

Yes, your account should be set up online if you signed up in-store. Visit our sign in page and try to reset your password using the email you signed up with. It's possible that we have an older email or no email at all on file so contact us if you need assistance.

Can I modify my order after placing it?

As long as your order hasn't shipped, it is possible to make changes to your order. However, this may cause your shipment to be delayed.

Payment Methods

How do I pay for my order?

We accept MasterCard, Discover, American Express, Visa, and Paypal.

Sorry, no cash, checks, travelers checks, money orders, COD's, or other credit cards are accepted at this time. If you pay through Paypal w/ eCheck then it will be delayed until the eCheck clears, which normally happens within 5 days.

If we add other payment forms later, we'll make an announcement at that time. Thanks!

Yes, our website is secured with TLS 1.2 encryption on all pages and we do not save your payment information on our server. The server encrypts your payment and personal information when sending to our server and when we send it to our payment processor.
