I've never preordered anything before so can anyone give me some advice? In Australia for $20 you can preorder the CD signed by all the members. When it comes out the CD will be $20 anyway, so I preordered it. Got a receipt number and all, but of course I didn't print it out. Anyways, my credit card still hasn't been charged. Should it have been charged already?
In my experience with pre-orders the company usually charges your card when they ship the product. Only once have I had them charge it long before the product release, but that was primarily because I pre-ordered a vinyl box set that was being released one 7" single at a time, and I wanted the box set shipped to me once the final single was released.
