HobbyLink Japan only charges customers for their orders when items are in stock and actually ready to ship or to enter your Private Warehouse. You will not be charged for preorders until they are available. Please note that you will be charged within 24 hours for any in-stock items.
As soon as we know exactly what we can charge you for (i.e., in-stock items that you requested to be shipped immediately or moved to your Private Warehouse, or automatic shipments of items in Private Warehouse more than 60 days), your order will enter payment processing. At that point you will be billed for the order. After your payment clears, your paid order will be shipped, or will become visible in your Private Warehouse, depending on your order's handling method. Until orders are processed, feel free to keep track of them by signing in to your HLJ account.
