What is Pre-order?
It generally means that you are purchasing a product that has not been produced yet.
The payment usually splits into two parts: a deposit and the final payment (money remaining due).
After the deposit is paid, the manufacturer will start to produce according to the order quantity. Only after the final payment is made, the manufacturer will ship the finished product to you.
However, the pre-order items in our store are all full payment. You only need to pay once (including the shipping cost) for those pre-order items on Devilinspired. All that is left for you is to wait patiently, we’ll send the shipping notice to the customers’ e-mail(the one you give us when you ordered) before shipping. We will also update the latest order information to you through email@example.com.
Or you can have an account on Devilinspired. It’s convenient for you to check order information, or receive coupons/store credit if you log in. Any questions or concerns please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Why those items are pre-order?
In Lolita Fashion, Pre-order is an often used sale tool that let Lolita indie brands or stores charge customers a deposit or full payment to reserve products. So that the manufacturer will produce products according to the order quantity and customers can order a loved Lolita dress in advance.
As we know, Lolita Fashion is a niche subculture from Japan. For the manufacturer, pre-order is the perfect way to reduce production costs. In addition, this design of your favorite Lolita Fashion designer may not appeal to you. So the designer uses this method to check out whether the new design is able to have enough orders to put into production.
Will the dress I received exactly the same as the pictures?
The dress you purchase is produced after the pre-order ends. Fabric pieces will be cut, sewn, and made according to the original paper pattern sample. And the manufacturer will do quality control after the dress is made. So the dress you order will be exactly the same as the picture.
