5. How can I place a COD order?
COD orders are placed when a customer wants to make the payment only once after receiving the products physically.
There are certain terms that one needs to keep in mind while placing a COD order:
When you place a COD order on Games The Shop, you will be receiving a call from our customer care agent also a mail containing the order confirmation will be sent to you. In case you don’t pick up the call or your contact no. is not reachable you can call and confirm the order yourself
Additional shipping charge Rs.50 could be applicable if the standard order value is less than Rs.999, based on products’ availability or forthcoming status which you have ordered.
There is a purchase limit for placing an order when choosing your mode of payment as COD which depends on your pin code.
The fulfilment of COD orders are not available on certain pin codes, so to check the same you need to click the link stating COD service availability on the product page and in the search bar enter the pin code which lets you know whether COD service is available on your location or not.
If the COD option is not available at your location, one can always place order using credit/debit card.
In some cases the COD facility is not available at a particular pin code because our shipping partners do not service on those particular locations.
The COD amount should be handed over to the delivery agent before opening the order package.
6. Why is the COD option not available at my location?
Availability of COD service depends on the ability of our courier partner servicing your location to accept cash as payment at the time of delivery.
Our courier partners have limits on the cash amount payable on delivery depending on the destination and your order value might have exceeded this limit. Please enter your pin code on the product page to check if COD is available in your location.
7. What is Pre-Ordering and how it works?
Pre-order is one way to get your hands on first of your favourite game as soon as it is released in India.
When you pre-order any product, you authorize us to charge your account and ship and deliver the product once the same is released.
From time to time we run promotional discounts and also offer freebies till the supplies last.
Price guarantee is offered by Games The Shop only on certain products. This means that if the price of some product has been hiked after the release you have to pay the same price on which you pre-ordered the product. But in case of reduction of the price, you will be paying less.
The shipment of the ordered product or game starts on or after it is released in India. We strive towards delivering the order as soon as the product is released.
Sometimes the publisher might limit the product availability, in that case the orders are dispatched on first come first serve basis.
In case there is a delay in the release we try working it out with the manufacturer and also keep our customers informed about the same.
8. When will the product get delivered?
For metro cities, shipments are reached generally next day itself from the day it gets shipped. For cities it may take 2-4 days more. You will receive an email notification to your registered email id as soon as your product gets shipped. Kindly check your spam box as well for such notifications.
Shipment for Pre-Order products starts on the day of release.

10. I tried placing an order through credit card/debit card, but the order was not successful. What will happen to the money deducted from the bank account?
First of all please check your bank/credit card account to ensure that the amount has been debited. If the same has happened after the payment failure, the bank normally rolls backs the amount in 7 business days. The time taken varies from bank to bank, and unfortunately we won’t be able to help you.
If the bank asks you to contact us, and if the money has been received by us we will initiate a refund for the same within 3 days of your request. Or if you are still interested in placing an order we can process the same for you if the money has been received by us.
