    how long does it take for them to post my game?

    I bought FF3 for the DS off them on the 6th of April..it was cheap! but it says "Queued For Process"...what does that mean??

    Stuff that I've ordered from movietyme can take a while to come. It's taken a few weeks for some of my items to arrive!

    Takes a few days to get from ordering to shipping, then a week or more to arrive I've found. I've had to wait over a week for the item to ship in the past too, so I assume they order from their suppliers on demand rather than retain stock themselves.

    Depends on their stock I guess.

    I tried to order Advance Wars for the DS. Contacted 4 weeks after placing the order with a "trying to obtain stock" email, then four weeks after that with a message stating "unable to get a copy of title".

    I was asked if I wanted a credit note or refund, I asked for refund and CC was credited next working day, and voucher was credited back to my account.

    So unless you're in a desperate need to get your title I wouldn't worry about the company, it will be sorted one way or another in the end.

    Not sure about games, but HD DVDs I've ordered from them have often arrived the next day. The last one I got (Happy Feet) took around a week or so, but I guess it depends on whether they need to import it before shipping it.

    If they have to import your title , and so to help the customer , its shipped from uk and so will take longer , but well worth it.

    Well it may show this while the product is in transit , ie on the way to their uk offices.
    It may update to "shipped" once its been sent from their uk office to you.

    Have you emailed them to see how the order is getting on?

    ive used them 2 times this week....ordered my first blu-ray last friday late evening, and it arrived wednesday, fair enuff i thought (for free delivery). so on receiving my first blu-ray, i ordered a 2nd disc (maybe coz of the excitement of a non-uk blu-ray actually working on the PS3 - thought i would stock up!!) at about 10am weds morning, and it arrived next day.

    so far with my experiences, ive been very impressed, and plan on using them many times again.

    but i guess (like already mentioned) its a case of if they have the stock in the UK, or you have to wait for them to get the stock in from their USA warehouse.
