Frequently Asked Questions

Product information

I am looking for an item on the website but cannot find it

When an item is not listed on the website, this means that it is out of stock. All our items are not necessarily resupplied.

If one of the items we have offered is not in stock, please use the form below to know whether or not it will be restocked.

In order for your information request to be handled with maximum efficiency, please include if possible the following details :

  • Band's name
  • Album's name
  • Format / details (CD, Digipak, DVD, T-shirt, size, etc.)
  • Or maybe a weblink directing to the item you are looking for

Are all the items on the site available ?

Our website reflects our current stock (CDs, Vinyls, DVDs, VHS, Merchandising, Books) and what we can order for our customers within a reasonable time.

However, items ordered are deducted from the stock only upon validation of the order. Thus, an item available in limited quantity can be ordered by several people before the site is updated. In these cases, any order that we can not handle will be refunded (if you paid by check or bank transfer, the refund will come as a credit note).

Our website and stock information are updated on a daily basis.

Payment methods

How to pay by credit card ?

Payment by credit card is done through PayPal.

The payment account is charged upon validation of the order or pre-order into our system, and not upon shipment of the order.

Refunds are proceeded through the medium of payment selected by the customer (PayPal).

Payment by PayPal

Payment can be made through PayPal after you have opened an account there. Please check PayPal for further information.

Any refund for unavailability of items will be processed via PayPal.

Cash, and money order

We do not accept payment by International Money Order or Cash Mandate.

We do not accept cash sent by post.

Shipping methods and shipping cost

Parcel tracking and choice of the shipping company

When your order is registered, you can choose among a selection of various shipping methods.

That selection depends on where you live as all carriers don't service the whole world.

Some carriers offer tracking. This option will be mentioned on the shipping method selection page. If you pick a carrier which offers this option, you will be able to track your package by going to the order tracking page in your customer account.There you will find an internet link leading to the tracking of the parcel on the website of your chosen service.

We STRONGLY recommend you AVOID MEDIA MAIL as a shipping option when buying Vinyl and CDs. While Media Mail is the cheapest shipping option available, it often sees delays of up to 4 or 5 weeks. Additionally, MEDIA MAIL packages are not treated with the same care as other mail classes, and often receive damage in transit.

Delivery time

Delivery times are not a guarantee and vary greatly according to your carrier. Delivery time (such as 2-Day Priority Mail) is separate from processing time, and tracking begins once the package is given to the postal carrier. We do our best to process and pack your order within 3 business days of the order's creation.

*COVID-19 UPDATE* - As the pandemic has greatly increased the amount of mail going into and out of the postal service, all mail carriers, Media Mail, and Priority Mail classes are experiencing mild to severe delays. Please check your tracking number and contact your local post office if you are concerned about the delivery time of your package.

Shipping costs calculation

The shipping costs added to the total of your order depend on several criteria :

  • the weight of your order
  • the delivery address
  • the delivery mode

To obtain an estimation of the shipping costs of your order, once all the selected items have been added to your cart, simply click on the "Get a quote" in the "My Cart" area located at the top of the website.

When will my pre-order be sent?
