Customer Service FAQ


Unlike many of our competitors, we have no problem shipping to an APO/FPO. Orders over $99 qualify for our free shipping discount.

Cancellation Policy

All cancellations will be logged in your customer account. Cancellations that occur more than one year from the date of order will only be refunded in the form of store credit. For accounts with excessive amounts of order cancellations, we will be limiting certain features to these accounts on our website. The limitations will include, but are not limited to:

  • Will not be able to place orders using the Customer Hold option.
  • Will not be able to place orders with the Check or Money Order payment option
  • Will not be able to place orders for In-store Pick-Up
  • Will not be able to place orders with Preorder items

Customers will be sent two notification emails warning of excessive use before action is taken against their account. If action against an account is necessary, a final email will be sent.

One or two cancellations will NOT result in your account being limited.

Response Times

Customer Support strives to answer all inquiries as quickly as possible. We answer all emails in the order in which they are received. We attempt to answer all emails within one business day.


At Miniature Market we are pleased to say we are partnering with publishers to help them with their logistics and shipping management needs, such as Kickstarter Fulfilments. The logistics management of a project cannot be improvised, and some of the best publishers would rather focus on creating the greatest games instead of shipping them. This new service will be in addition to Miniature Market’s regular website service and we have created a specific Fulfillment Team to ensure there will be no delay or disruption to our regular order processing.

Gift Certificates

We sell gift certificates in United States monetary denominations starting at $5 and going up to $250. Gift Certificate codes are generated by our Customer Support Staff. If you order a gift certificate outside of our business hours, your gift certificate code will be generated and sent to you on the next business day. To use your gift certificate, proceed to checkout and enter the code in the “Discount Codes and Gift Certificates” box provided and hit “Apply Coupon”. You can check your remaining balance the same way. If you’re not ready to place an order but want to check the status and balance of your gift certificate, just login to your account and you can do so from your account dashboard. Gift Certificates expire 5 years after date issued. Gift Card Terms and Conditions

Grading Policy

See Grading Policy page for more details

Magic the Gathering

As an authorized Wizards of the Coast online retailer, we cannot ship Magic outside the U.S. This includes store owners. We will not make any exceptions.

Ordering & Order Statuses

If you want to place an order on our website we require an email address to be associated with the order. This email address will also be your user id so you can log in and change your personal information. We will use this email address to send order confirmations and shipping notices as well.

Order Statuses

Order Received – When you place your order and the payment has been received, your order moves to this status.

Order Awaiting Release - This status means that your order has been received and your items reserved, however, processing will not occur until a later time. This delay in processing could be because your order has an item that is on preorder or because your order was placed using our Customer Hold feature. If your order contains one or more preorders your order will be processed and shipped once all preorder item(s) have released. In the case of a Customer Hold please contact our Customer Service team to have your order(s) released.

Virtual Order Queue – This is the warehouse paperless order queue. Your order moves to this status when it is being prepared for our warehouse to begin your order.

Please note: From this stage on, we can no longer make adjustments to your order.

Virtual Order Processing – In this status, your order is actively being worked on by a Miniature Market warehouse employee. During this process in the chain, your order is pulled using a mobile order verification device to ensure order integrity.

Contents Verified – Your order has been brought together by the order puller and is now in queue to be packed for shipment to you.

Packaged – Your order has been packed and is awaiting shipment.

Shipped - The shipped status means that your order has been completed and a shipping label has been placed on your package. You will receive an email shortly after your shipping label has been created with your tracking number. Tracking information can take up to 24 hours after the packages have been picked up by the shipping company to show transit information.

Out of Stocks

If an item is out of stock on your order, we will refund your account for the item and ship the rest of the order. There are exceptions when we know an item will be restocked shortly, in which case we will hold the order and ship it in its entirety once the item arrives.

Payment, Pricing & Promotions

All pricing is listed in USD.

Our website accepts all major credit cards and PayPal as acceptable methods of payment. If you are a U.S. resident you may pay with a check/money order, but the items will not ship until payment has cleared. Orders not paid within 10 business days will be cancelled.

Sometimes we will temporarily discount a product's price or run promotions on certain product lines. These changes are time-sensitive and Miniature Market reserves the right to end a promotion at any time. Orders placed before a sale begins or after the expiration will not be eligible for the promotional rate.

Miniature Market reserves the right to cancel any orders effected by a website error, with no further obligations to you, even after an order confirmation has been received. In the case that payment has already been received, Miniature Market will contact you via email regarding the error and will process a full refund for the order.


Many times we offer products for sale before they are released by the manufacturer. If you purchase one of these items, payment is required at the time the order is placed. If there are other items on the order, we will not ship the entire order until the preorder product comes out. If an item says preorder in the title, it means the item is not yet available and we are taking advance orders. The quantity available and 'In Stock' notation displays the amount we have left based on our current order with the supplier.

All preorders must ship out in one shipment and existing preorders cannot be split into separate orders.

Priority Processing

Priority Processing is a new feature that will move your order to the front of our order queue. The increase in priority means lower wait times for your order throughout the pulling, packing, and shipping process. For orders containing a preorder item or orders that have been put on Customer Hold, the Priority Processing will take effect when the order is released.

Please Note: Priority Processing feature decreases your order’s wait time in our warehouse queues, this feature does not affect your chosen shipping method.

Product Alerts

Sign up on an item page to receive notifications regarding the item's price and inventory. You must be signed into your account to sign up for notifications and will receive confirmation on the product page for your product notification selections. In addition, you will see a record of your product notifications in your customer account.

Preorder Release

You will receive an email once the current preorder has arrived in our warehouse and released. Please note, however, that the release of an item does not guarantee the availability of that item for purchase. In cases of very popular items we may sell through our entire preorder allocation and may not have additional copies available for sale when the product first releases.

Price Drop

You will receive an email once the price drops on the selected product. You will be notified both for standard price changes as well as sale price changes. You will not, however, receive notification for Daily Deal pricing. To ensure you know about all of our Daily Deals, please sign up for our Daily Deal’s newsletter.

Please note that you will only receive one price notification. After receiving a price drop notification, you will need to sign up again for a product notification if you wish to be alerted of future price drops.

Low Stock

You will receive an email once the selected item has two or fewer items left in stock. This product notification does not reserve quantity for you and the item may still sell out shortly after the email has been sent. After receiving a low stock notification you will need to sign up again for the product notification if you would wish to not purchase the item at this time but do wish to be alerted of the low stock in the future.


You will receive an email once the selected item has been restocked. We regularly restock many of our popular items and do strive to restock at high enough quantities to fulfill current demand for a product. However, it is not uncommon that due to limited availability on an item, that we may receive smaller than desired restocks on popular items which will lead to the item selling out quickly after being restocked. This product notification does not secure quantity for you and the item could sell out again after the notification has been sent. After receiving a restock notification on a product you will need to sign up again for the product notification if you would wish to receive future notifications due to an out of stock.
