Here you will find the answer to most FAQ's.
We employ a very sophisticated software which allows the customer to select the shipment according to his/her requirements.
Shipment takes only place when all settings apply which the customer has selected or at the latest possible date.
After deejay.de has shipped the items per DHL, GLS, or DPD, 95 % of all standard packages will arrive at the customer's address the next business day.
These are normal delivery times and deejay.de has no influence on such dates.
If you absolutely require the item(s) the following day, delivery per express mail is possible.
The precise cost and arrival of such deliveries will be shown on the order form.
For the moment we offer the following options:
This selection is best if you want to get your shipment on a special date.
The date is the day on that we write the invoice.
If you pay by cash on delivery, credit card it is also the shipment day.
If you pay by paypal or pre-payment it is only the day we write the invoice. The shipment will leave after we have recevied the money on our account.
Is chosen after the delivery by a fixed date, no new date, the account is automatically set to dispatch by delivery value.
This choice is appropriate if, for example one will have sent no shipment under 40 €, but a transit on a given day is not important.
Each customer is assigned a value delivery.
This will be considered when this has been specially selected or chosen for a delivery by a fixed date no new date.
The delivery value is an amount under the program will not dispatch to.
Most bills are right out of the reach of this amount generated.
Since this value but represents a minimum value, we create invoices in some cases only a few days later when it is foreseeable that more articles in arrears in the next few days will be available.
This choice is particularly useful if you want to have no partial deliveries, but a transit on a given day is not important.
Are all items available, will be created immediately the bill.
After invoicing, the account is automatically set back to mail delivery by value.
The delivery value simply indicates that sum below which a delivery shall not take place.
Most of the time, an invoice will be issued as soon as such a sum is reached.
However, since this value indicates a minimum value, we may also issue an invoice several days later if we realize that there are additional items outstanding and will become available within the next few days.
We check each order after receipt and email the status of the order to the customer.
If this email can be send before 18:00 hours, shipment may take place the same day.
However, shipment can only be made if the selected forwarding firm and payment method allow it.
Normally, all orders shipped via DHL, GLS, or DPD can be send out up to 18:00 hours.
Exceptions are express parcels via DHL, TNT, etc. as well as packages via Post.at.
Such shipments require an earlier pick-up time and cannot be send out after 14:30 hours on the same day.
For same-day-shipments the following payment methods are available:
- Credit memo
- Credit card
When paying by credit card, shipment can only take place after a debit has been authorized by the respective credit card company.
If selecting PayPal, the money must have been credited to our PayPal account prior to 18:00 hours of that day.
The following payment methods do not permit same-day-shipment:
- Debit note first
If prepayment or debit note first is selected, shipment only takes place after our account has been credited.
Since such methods normally take 2-4 business days, same-day-shipment is not possible.
Shipping costs vary depending on the shipping and payment method selected.
Within Germany and Austria a flat rate per packaged is being charged, regardless of the parcel's weight.
Exceptions are express parcels or shipments abroad.
Those are charged by weight.

From the first day a disc is available in the customer's backorder,
the order may be reserved for up to 4 weeks, after which the item(s) must be shipped.
Each status email indicates this "as-late-as-possible" shipping date.

When shipping COD per DHL a fee of 2.00 EUR applies and is kept by DHL in addition to the normal costs,
such as postage + COD charges (which we will invoice).
This is why our invoice will differ by that amount from the sum to be paid.
You will find this information on our website under „Shipping costs“. When paying per COD,
additional fees apply which are not included in the postage.
This additional cost will not be dropped for shipments with a value of over 39.00 EURO.

First, we will check the order and produce a prepayment invoice manually.
YWe only invoice deliverable items.
Since we sometimes expect to still receive goods until the end of the day, the email may not be send until we have received the items.

After generating a prepayment invoice, each customer receives an email,
stating the invoice amount, a reference number, as well as our bank information.
This email will indicate when the payment has to be credited to our account.
If the amount does not arrive in our account within the allotted time, we shall reverse the order and replace the item in our warehouse.
After that, the item will not be ordered or reserved for you and must be re-ordered, if necessary.
If an overpayment does occur, the difference will be credited to your account and set off with your next order.
