If you've already registered an account with us, the quickest way to report a problem is through your order history page. You'll see a "Report Order Problem" button next to the order.
If you don't have an account or just want to talk to us directly then use our contact page.
Pre-orders are items scattered throughout the site in their appropriate categories. They will ALWAYS be noted in the title with "PRE-ORDER". Basically you get a lot more control over the item you want and its top quality.
Majority of pre-orders are sent to the manufacturers weekly, but there are some company that are placed every other week.
Pre-order time frames are not chosen by Bodyartforms, but are given to us by each manufacturer on how long it will take them to complete our orders. The time frame varies depending on the manufacturer and each pre-order item will have the estimated time frame listed on the item page. All time frames are subject to change without notice. The time frames are on how long it takes the piece to be made and it does not include shipping time.
Your ENTIRE ORDER will be held until we receive all your items. If you want the other items to come before the pre-order item then you need to PLACE A SEPERATE ORDER. Picking express or priority mail will not get your pre-order item to you faster, it will only speed up the process AFTER we get your item and ship your order out. Once we receive a complete order, we will ship the order out within 24 hours.
If buying a pre-order for a special occasion or wanting to give a pre-order as a gift, we recommend placing the order 3 months in advance for US orders and 4-5 month in advance for international orders. We cannot guarantee that your item will arrive in time.
Once an order has been placed with a manufacturer, we are UNABLE TO MAKE ANY CHANGES! Please double check your specs and that you order the correct size beforehand.
If you want to cancel, remove or change a pre-order item there will be a 15% restocking fee on each item because we cannot stop the pieces from being made, nor can we return them to the manufacturer.
Any order can be cancelled AS LONG as it has not shipped out. Once an order has shipped out, it's out of our control and can not be returned.
Credit card order cancellations:
Contact us with your invoice # and let us know you want it cancelled. As per the checkout agreement, there is a 15% cancellation fee (we'll refund the entire amount of your order less 15%). This is to cover the fees it costs us to refund your money. If you did NOT pay for your order (and just see an invoice # when you check your order status) then the order will just clear out of our system after 2-3 weeks. The order will not charge or ship since it was not paid for.
Money order & cash order cancellations:
If you have not sent in payment, simply do not send in payment and the order will cancel itself out after 60 days.

- How do I send in a money order or cash payment?
By default, money order or cash orders do not show up on the website until the payment is received. If you have a store account you'll know when we have received payment because your order will show up and the status will either say "Pending...shipment" or "Shipped". You can check your order status through your account any time online by going to your order history page.
Also, once we receive and process your payment, your order will ship out on the next business day (unless it's a pre-order). Both registered and unregistered customers, get a confirmation email when your order ships out.
