Can I use my pre-paid or gift card to pay for my order?
We do not recommend the use of gift cards or pre-paid cards on our web site. Our system will place a pending authorization on your account when you place your order to ensure you have sufficient funds. Pre-paid cards will treat this as a charge and this will often cause the actual charge to be declined. You will then need to wait 10-14 business days, depending on your card’s issuing bank, for the pending authorization to fall off of your account before we can re-attempt the charge.
What if I have a large order?
Any order over $100 may be subject to an additional credit card authorization process.
Any order over $275 must use Paypal as a payment method, or contact customer service if they wish to pay with a credit card.

In the event that your credit card declines your order will be put on hold. We will then send you an email letting you know about the decline and requesting that you contact us to correct the problem. If we do not hear from you within a week your order will be cancelled.

I placed an order and saw that the funds were taken. A couple days have gone by and now I noticed the funds have been returned to me. Has the merchandise been reserved/guaranteed for me?
The initial charge you see when you check out of the shopping cart is a pre-authorization to confirm with your bank or credit card that you have sufficient funds to cover the order. Pre-authorizations are temporary holds on funds, and it is possible for your financial institution to return the funds to you if they haven’t received a finalized authorization from Willy and the Planks Merchandising within their guideline timeframe. Authorization times vary from institution to institution, some as short as 24 hours.
Rest assured your order is safe if:
1. You have an order confirmation;
2. You order status says processing;
3. You have not been contacted by a member of the Willy and the Planks Merchandising customer service team.
If all of the above are true, then the merchandise has been reserved for you and you will eventually see a charge to match your order confirmation.
I placed an order several days/weeks ago, but my order status still says “processing.” What does this mean?
Since the merchandise has a future release date, all pre-orders will remain “processing” until the physical merchandise has shipped. Unless contacted by Willy and the Planks to say there is a problem with your order, a “processing” status is an indicator that your order has been received and funds successfully secured to reserve you the merchandise for the release date.
I placed an order for several items, one being the pre-order merchandise? When will my order ship?
