QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SENTAI STORE ORDERS
How long will it take to get my order?
Orders are only processed Monday through Friday; excluding major holidays. Standard processing time is approximately 1 to 2 business days starting the day after your order was placed. Processing times may vary due to inventory constraints on orders containing back-orders, pre-orders, or out of stock items. Processing times may exceed 3 days during select holidays or sales events due to high volume. Your order will be processed in the sequential order in which it was received. Once your order is processed, it will take approximately 3 to 6 days to arrive.
Orders being shipped to Canada are held until all of the items in the order are in-stock and can be fulfilled together. Processing times may exceed 3 days during select holidays or sales events due to high volume. Your order will be processed in the sequential order in which it was received. Once your order is processed and ready to ship, typical delivery time is 3 weeks or less but may take additional time due to customs.
Why has my pre-order not shipped out yet?
Please be aware that if your order contains multiple pre-ordered items, your order may be held until all items are in-stock and can be shipped together. This may result in select items being received outside of their listed street date. However, should your order be held up by one or two items for an extended period, we will, at our discretion and at no additional expense to you, ship all items that are currently available.
Can I have my order shipped to a different country
At this time we are only shipping within the United States (Including APO (AA, AE, AP), GU, MH, MP, PR, PW and VI) & Canada.
Are there additional fees associated with shipping to Canada?
Shipping companies may charge a fee for delivering your package to a foreign country. Such fees, taxes, and customs duties are not included in our shipping price, and are your responsibility. We will not be responsible for seized shipments, and cannot provide refunds for seized products. Please check to make sure you are in compliance with all local laws if you are ordering a product(s).

I want to purchase a gift card. How can I use it?
- Sentai Filmworks Gift cards can be purchased in $10, $25, $50, and $100 increments. They are associated with unique codes and cannot be recharged after purchase.
- Codes will be delivered electronically to a recipient email address you designate at the time of purchase. To redeem their code, recipients must create a Sentai Filmworks store account.
- Gift cards expire unless redeemed within 12 months following the date of purchase. They have no cash value. Don’t try buying stamps, or snack items or airline tickets with our gift codes. They don’t work that way. And, you may receive an unwelcome reaction. They can’t be exchanged for cash or anything else.
- Gift codes should be treated with care. Handle them like cash, passwords, “artistic photos“ and fuzzy baby bunnies because some creep might steal them and use them for malevolent purposes. You and your recipient are entirely responsible for anything that happens to your code after we send it to you. So be careful!
- Once purchased, they can’t be un-purchased unless required by law. In other words, there are no returns or refunds even if the card is never redeemed. Likewise, once a user redeems a gift card, it can’t be revoked or used by anyone else. Each unique code may only be redeemed once.
