Old pre-orders vs New pre-orders
In the old system you had to create a full pre-order list even if you just wanted to pre-order a single item. This was obviously not ideal since the pre-order list was designed for multiple pre-orders and monthly subscriptions. While this method worked very well for our customers who placed pre-orders on a regular basis, there were definitely a lot of downsides for occasional buyers.
Now in the new shop system, you can simply place a pre-order for a single item as if it were a regular item, pay for it, take care of the shipping cost immediately, and then you can forget about it. When the item becomes available, we'll process your order and ship it to you and you'll receive it shortly after. We'll still notify you via e-mail when your order ships of course. This is definitely a major improvement for occasional buyers!
