    Are yall gonna charge the minute we order for the expansions or are you guys going to wait for launch date to charge for the expansions ?

    They charge the minute they are ordered

  3. CatsPaws Boy, that one flew over your head

    They have to charge as soon as you click cause the pre order also gives you beta access and that has not been free for many years.

    Actually, I think they charge you because it gives you access to all previous expansions. I assume that CoV will also do so, although they forgot to mention this.

    Always charged when you ordered if my memory serves me correctly, can't see that changing.

    Nowadays, we always get charged immediately with the preorder.

    yea was a banking nightmare when all your accounts would get charge on day of the release. Glad its instant now.

    Unless I'm remembering incorrectly, select /claims are also available right away.

    When can we pre-order? Is it available now?

    I have found that ordering multiple expansions on the same credit card can trigger some fraud hassles and found it easiest to stagger the orders over a period of time leading up to the launch.

    I wish we could bind accounts together and bulk order in a single charge.

    I can't remember if the pre-orders have started right after the current expansion year-end sale finishes. If not, it's been soon after. The ToL sale ends on Oct. 10, so I would expect sales of the next expansion will begin no later than Oct. 18.

    It was pretty last minute before beta last time. I'm not sure how it typically is.

    I know because I had to buy CoV to loot otherwise fully rotting raid drops last year, and was annoyed enough seeing it still rot I bought CoV weeks before I'd have gotten it with the ToL prepurchase.

    I'm not sure how the teleport keying works, or if it will be a separate purchase after the prepurchase starts.

    That would be very nice!

    That's concerning if anti-fraud hassles can be triggered. I've been using PayPal for the expansions but that's not an option for subscriptions. I could use different payment sources but I don't know if that triggers scrutiny on Daybreak's end.

    I myself have not had an issue with the subscriptions, only 1 time with expansions. It was very simple to resolve, just confirmed it wasn't fraud, end of story. However, since I have 3 accounts, I just buy 1 per month after pre-orders are available. It's really not a big deal at all and I wouldn't worry about it Zun. Worst case the order doesn't go through, you get a call from the bank, they say did you make this purchase, you say yes, it's all good.

    Edit: it was a few years ago, so I might not have even gotten a call from the bank. It might have just been the transaction was getting rejected on the other accounts and I spaced them out a few days. I don't remember exactly. I just know for sure that I started spacing my expansions out a little bit instead of buying them all in the same 15 minutes because there was a problem. Again, been a few years and it wasn't a big deal.
