Should I Cancel ALL my orders?Should I Cancel ALL my orders?Diary

RacheruTheNekoRacheruTheNeko6 месяцев назад
Because of the current situation, I am no longer able to work and I am thinking that the sensible thing to do is to cancel my orders and get them at a later date if I still want them. I will get paid this month (luckily I did a bit extra) but after that, I have no income for the foreseeable. I am not the best judge in figure popularity, but I feel a few at least will be hard to get later. However, I have already cancelled a lot of orders and so I expect my account would be banned (not that it would be the worst thing to happen), I mainly feel bad for cancelling as I feel like I am letting down a person (I hope that makes sense). I had a second job lined up (the first pays for bills and the second for hobbies) but since the outbreak, there have been delays in that (waiting for a DBS check) and even then I won't be able to start until things have settled.

I know I should cancel but I am hoping that things will turn around soon before the next shipment is ready. I don't even know if anything will be released this month, hence my hesitation in cancelling.

Any thoughts are welcome. What would you do? If I saved some and cancelled the rest what should I keep?

*Edit* Thank you everyone for your replies, I never expected so many replies let alone any. I appreciate the time you took to leave a comment. I decided to at least now send an email to let the store know my situation and let them choose my fate. If they cancel them/close my account then that is one less thing to worry about. I hope everyone is doing well.

*Second Edit* Thank you again everyone that took the time to reply. Following the advice of many, I cancelled a lot of items. A few people let me know that Amiami are allowing cancellations at the moment and I thought best to not wait. Since there are a few a worry will be impossible to get later, I decided to instead cancel most of them instead of all. I did have 32 orders, now there are 18. It might be stupid to not just cancel them all, but for now that is what I decided. Thanks for all your help. I hope the situation improves quickly for everyone and that everyone is safe and well. :3

I had to cancel one of my pre-orders because of COVID-19 too. Granted I'm not as affected as other people are because I have pretty good savings, but I judged it was best not to push it. If you feel like you'd be compromising proper living conditions if you go through with all pre-orders, I'd say it's better to cancel them as you say. A hobby should never take precedence over necessities.

sarious5 месяцев назад#76824038Seems like you got the right priorities. Pets > You > Hobbies :3
In all seriousness though, just keep checking on the situation *in Japan* or whatever country shop is in. Until things settle down, I'm sure most shops will be relaxing their cancellation policies.
So I wouldn't cancel anything you're unsure if you'll be able to pay for or not. Just stuff you won't be able to afford *as soon* as you know that.
If they have a phone number and you're really worried, I recommend calling to cancel. They'll see that you're serious and treat you better that way.
I hope your cat's okay btw.


Thanks. I try to do my best for them.

Yeah. It seems they are trying to enforce lockdown in the UK now. Which is about time really. Hopefully enough people listen for it to be effective.

That is something I can do. :).

Luckily all my orders are from one shop, so it is a bit easier. Since it is Amiami and I pay on release it means I don’t have funds tied up at the moment. 

Thanks. They are doing well (I have three with me and two at my mum’s). I get to spend at of time with them while I stay at home now. :3

mistyandmasie5 месяцев назад#76822909Thanks for your reply. I live in well known area, but it isn’t a big town, so we have been able to get most of what we need and since I was able to order more cat food this morning I have everything I need for them apart from the medication which I collect monthly (luckily the vets are only a five minute walk away).
I already cut a few and I did start with Nendoroids thinking they will hopefully be easier to get later. Yeah, that is true. It isn’t just me cancelling. I shouldn’t have anything for this month so that should make it a bit easier.
Thanks. Stay well yourself. :)

spacegreentea6 месяцев назад#76822000I am not quite sure where you are located or how much a lockdown can affect you (if you live on a farm it is slightly easier to come by basic supplies, if you are in a big city it will likely take a toll on you).
It also depends on the number of figures but I would see which ones are your favorites or the ones that you can already picture displaying in your room.
If you have a hunch on rarer figures it might be best to stick with those too.
Nendoroids and Figma, in general, get re-releases if the demand is high.
Since demand should be relatively low due to Covid-19 (toilet paper is not necessarily more important than your waifu/husbando) you could create a budget for the coming month, break down costs and see what you can afford and can´t.
Stay healthy and ganbatte!

Talal6 месяцев назад#76783170This is a serious moment , no joke we need to survive. My advice to you .
Write email to them and explain about your all situation around the world . I am sure pure companies such as AmiAmi can understand what is going around the world. In fact I just paid for one of my order last week to AmiAmi and so far they even didn’t ship it . They can’t because most airlines are shutting down .
So please please cancel all if not then at least most of your order .we don’t know how long the virus will last . Save your Money and even if they ban your account so what , there are many companies online in fact you can use proxy server like white rabbit .
Worse case , at least cancel all your preorder that are going to release with in next 2 to 3 months.
People are losing jobs , companies are shutting down please do not underestimate this moment .
In fact I am going to cancel all my pre order from NY for April and May and I don’t care . It is time to survive .
Thanks for your reply. Yes, this is very serious now. Yeah, I will go through and try and cancel most of them, most won’t be to hard to get later I hope.

Yeah. That is true. That is good advice.
Stay safe.

Kittokatsu6 месяцев назад#76783234I am running into the same thing. I had cancelled 4 orders of figures I really wanted. But well I'd rather be able to live than have 4 more girls to my collection xD

Thanks for your reply. Yeah, it is a shame we have to cancel, but it is true. Hope you can get them later when the situation improves. :3
