Updated: September 15th 2020
Currently the warehouses that process Petersen Games web store orders have reduced their packing staff due to safety considerations. This has caused a significant slowdown and backlog in the shipping process. Due to the current shipping backlog, all items ordered after Sept 15th 2020 will be placed on a pre-order list and shipped at a later date. By ordering the items now, you will secure them for shipping once we make it through the backlog. We hope to make it through the backlog of shipping in October; however, we are unable to give an exact estimate of how much longer orders will take to ship. We hope as things progress that the normal shipping times, as outlined here, will resume quickly, our apologies for any inconvenience.
You should, however, receive an automated email from our shipping system alerting you when your order has shipped and how to track it.

It usually takes a week for a web store order to be exported to our shipping system, where it waits to be picked and packed. It can then take 10-15 business days to ship out. Orders placed around a holiday, especially during the month of December, can take longer to ship because of the higher number of items being shipped out at that time. This can also be the case when we are shipping a Kickstarter campaign, which can extend shipping time due to the amount of shipments in the shipping queue. Please note that our shipping system doesn’t interface well with our website, so the ‘processing’ status won’t update, even after an order has shipped out.

Subscription items will be shipped by the 15th of each month following the month in which they are purchased. For example, if a subscription is purchased or renews between October 4 and November 3 will be shipped on November 15. Non-subscription products will be shipped separately according to existing shipping times, usually 10-15 days after purchase.
Subscriptions Are Ongoing
This means your subscription does not end with Act 4, but will continue the following month with Act 1 of the next Saga.
New Pricing Model begins Nov. 4, 2020
New pricing model on all Cthulhu Mythos Sagas subscriptions begins on November 4, 2020.
Rather than receiving a flat $5 discount on each book and paying full shipping prices, you will now pay retail price on the books but receive free shipping on all subscription orders.
This means you will save $6 – $12 on each monthly installment. Your savings will only increase over time as postal rates continue to climb.
Price change takes effect Nov. 4 with the release of Dark Worlds Act 3.
PLEASE NOTE: Beginning November 4, 2020, each book will be priced at $25 and will ship for free. Initial orders placed prior to November 4 will charge at the current rate of $19.99 + shipping, but subsequent renewals will be at the new rate.
Cancelling Your Subscription
If you do wish to cancel or suspend your subscription, you must do it before the 1st of each month to guarantee you aren’t charged for the next issue. You can cancel your subscription at any time by visiting your account page and viewing your subscription at https://petersengames.com/my-account/subscriptions/
SHIPPING COUNTRIES & FEES
Unfortunately, we can no longer ship to Central, and South American countries (including Brazil) as these are not shipping friendly countries for international shipments.
Typically, import fees are paid up front as part of your shipping costs. These include the following countries and regions, The United States, Canada, Members of the European Union, China, Australia and New Zealand. However, there are countries where regulations prevent advance payment by a third party, and you may be responsible to pay customs taxes directly.**
**These countries include but are not limited to the following: Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Burkina Faso, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Korea, Kosovo, Kuwait, Macedonia, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Niger, Norway, Pakistan, Portugal, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom. Due to the variety of different ways that countries handle import fees, all customers are responsible for knowing what import fees they may be required to pay, and you order at your own risk, not ours.
WEB STORE ORDER CANCELLATIONS
Once an order is placed there is only a very small window to cancel an order before it goes into the shipping queue and we are no longer able to cancel it. For this reason, most of the time orders cannot be cancelled once placed.
WEB STORE RETURNS
We are currently not equipped to accept returns of web store orders. Under certain circumstances, at our discretion, we will allow returns, but the majority of the time all sales are final. We ask that you only place an order knowing that all sales are final.
If you have an item that arrives missing a piece or that is damaged, you can submit a ticket on our support page here: https://petersengames.com/support/ We will try to replace it, if we have those pieces available.
