We reserve the right to limit or prohibit orders that, in our sole judgment, appear to be placed by dealers, resellers or distributors. Cancellations at the discretion of Dark Horse Direct may be subject to our Cancellation Policy. This is subject to the discretion of the Dark Horse Direct Customer Support Staff.



You may pre-order our Products, separately or in combination with each other. By placing a pre-order or purchasing currently shipping products, you hereby agree to the following Terms of Service Conditions.



When placing a Pre-Order, you will be required to provide certain information, such as your address and billing information. You represent and warrant that all such information is accurate, and you shall ensure that such information is kept current. We shall have no responsibility or liability for inaccurate information or information that later becomes outdated and shall have no obligation to make efforts to determine the correct contact or shipping information. You can update your information at any time prior to your Product being shipped by sending an e-mail to DirectHelp@DarkHorse.com or by simply logging into your account and updating your customer information. To avoid any unnecessary complications in order fulfillment, please verify that your payment and shipping information is accurate every time you place an order.



On certain items, you will be charged a non-refundable deposit of 10% of the purchase price (refundable only if you cancel within twenty-four (24) hours of your Pre-Order) when you place your Pre-Order. This will be indicated on the product page if a non-refundable deposit will be required. We will retain your deposit if you cancel any time thereafter. We will charge you the remainder of the payment pursuant to one of the following methods: (i) upon shipping of the Product; (ii) for manufacture-to-order Products at the time of your Order; or, (iii) optionally for Products retailing over $100 USD on payment plan installments. Non-Refundable Deposits (NRD) are non-transferable between items and/or orders. All Pre-Orders are handled through the Shopify Payment platform unless purchased via an available payment plan option. Methods of payment accepted are Visa, Master Card, American Express, Discover, PayPal, and others as made available from time to time by the payment gateway provider. All Payment Plan Pre-orders placed before June 17th, 2020 will be facilitated through your PayWhirl account. Any Payment Plan placed after June 17th, 2020 will be facilitated by Stripe and can be managed through your Dark Horse Direct account. Payment Plan Pre-orders placed on and after January 30, 2023 will be facilitated through Partial.ly and will require a contractual agreement. Customers who use the Partial.ly Payment Plan service will be bound to the Partial.ly Terms and Conditions in addition to the Dark Horse Direct Terms of Service and contract agreement. Products will not be shipped until final payment is completed on your selected plan and the item is in-stock. A 5% usage fee is applied at checkout when using this service. Your placing of a Pre-Order constitutes your express agreement to our charging of your provided payment method at such time. For international customers: The purchase price does not include import duties, taxes, and other government charges, which are your responsibility. If we are unable to commence shipment of a Pre-Order Product on or before the one-year anniversary of your placing the Pre-Order for that Product, we shall process a full refund to you upon your request. Partial.ly Payment Plans are available to US, Canada, Mexico, UK, Australia, France, Poland, Germany, Spain, and Italy residents only. This may change in the future at the discretion of Dark Horse Direct.

On items less than $100 USD, you may be required to pay the amount in full in order to secure your order of the said item. This is typically the case for items made to pre-orders. Any order cancellations on items with no NRD after a 72-hour grace period will be subject to a 10% cancellation fee.



In general, we STRONGLY urge you to contact our Customer Support team rather than initiating a chargeback dispute or submitting a PayPal claim if you have an issue. Our team is equipped to resolve any issue you may be experiencing. Initiating a chargeback dispute or PayPal claim only prolongs your resolution and virtually eliminates the options we have to assist you. Should one of these situations occur, your order will be placed on a permanent hold until the dispute or claim has been resolved. Unresolved claims or disputes are subject to all of our order cancellation procedures and fees, plus whatever your banking institution or PayPal charges us in addition to your claim. This can potentially affect future orders, as we will request resolution of fee prior to new order placement. Multiple chargeback claims or PayPal disputes by the same customer will result in account closure and automatic order termination from that point on. This is subject to the discretion of Dark Horse Direct Customer Support Staff. By selecting a Partial.ly Payment Plan during checkout you are agreeing to all applicable terms of service via the agreed upon contract. A copy of your acceptance of these terms and contract will be submitted as evidence upon dispute or claims information request.
At times there are order limits placed on certain products. The Dark Horse Direct Customer service staff will notify you if you are in violation of stated limitations of certain products listed on their product page. Order violations will be canceled and refunded. Repeated violations will be subject to a 10% cancellation fee of total order amount. This is subject to the discretion of the Dark Horse Direct Customer Support Staff.



The expected shipping date for Pre-Order Products will be clearly noted on each Product page, subject to reasonable delays in manufacturing and/or delivery. Such date is only an estimate, is subject to change, and we do not represent or warrant that we will be able to ship the Product by the estimated date. As a result, in the event that a delay arises and the estimated shipment and/or release of the product is not met, we are not responsible for any damages that may occur due to the delay, nor shall we be obligated, except as set forth in these Terms, to provide any discounts, refunds or credits due to any such delays. The Products will be shipped in the order in which your Pre-Order is received. Shipments will be made Monday – Friday, excluding holidays, unless otherwise noted.
You agree to provide current, complete and accurate purchase and account information for all purchases made at our store. You agree to promptly update your account and other information, including your email address, shipping address, and credit card numbers and expiration dates so that we can complete your transactions and contact you as needed.
For more detail, please review our Returns Policy.
Dark Horse Direct is not responsible for items shipped to 3rd party forwarders, individuals or businesses, and will consider the product as delivered and final once delivery has been confirmed at indicated shipping destination. Any damages to your item after delivery confirmation from selected carrier are not the responsibility of Dark Horse Direct and the customer will be responsible for any requested replacement costs and additional shipping fees incurred. We reserve the right to cancel and refund orders at will if an address or shipping information is suspected as fraudulent. In the event we contact you for more information regarding your shipping address, please reply promptly with the additional information requested, otherwise a delayed response can result in order cancelation and/or additional fees.
In the event an order undeliverable, refused upon delivery, or returned without prior authorization by contacting Dark Horse Direct Customer Service, Dark Horse Direct will adhere to our Returns Policy. In the event a balance is due for a refused/undeliverable/unauthorized returned order and you do not resolve the balance, Dark Horse Direct reserves the right to apply a permanent hold on the account, which will result in orders being held. Failure to resolve these fees will result in cancellation of any pending orders and account closure. Dark Horse Direct will deduct the aforementioned fees, in addition to our standard Cancellation and Restocking Fees as outlined in our Cancellation Policy, from any applicable refund.



Dark Horse Direct will collect any US taxes required at the time you place your order. We will NOT collect international taxes or import fees and will be indicated as Delivered At Place (DAP). This means that the customer is responsible for all customs duties and import fees at the time your order arrives and is required by Customs. Refusal of orders at customs to be delivered back to sender will not be considered for a refund and will be subject to forfeit of the order and additional fees incurred at the expense of the sender (Dark Horse Direct).
