I just placed an order, what happens next?
- First you will receive an email of the order confirmation number after it has been submitted successfully; It will also show as a pending Sales Order under your customer account history. If there is a problem with the order, such as a failure of payment or incorrect billing/shipping info, the order will not be able to be submitted. In such a case, check the error notifications to see what you made need to correct.
- Next a Cash Sale will be processed under your account as the receipt for your order, this receipt is confirmation that you have successfully been billed for your order and the items are now ready to begin being processed for shipment.
- Both the Sales Order and the Cash Sale receipt will have their own confirmation numbers, be aware that it is not a double billing and the Sales Order and Cash Sale receipt are separate records for the same order.
- When in stock items are being processed for shipment, you will receive Fulfillment emails for those items being shipped out from your original Sales Order. Only those items currently in stock and ready to ship will be fulfilled, anything not currently in stock will remain pending on your Sales Order.

What is a Sales Order?
- The Sales Order is the initial record that your order has been successfully submitted and is pending in our system

What is a Cash Sale?
- The Cash Sale is the record that you have been billed and is the receipt for your purchase

How long will it take to get my order?
- For in stock items, orders are generally shipped within 48 hours (2 business days) after they have been billed. Delivery times will vary depending on the status of your items, the method of shipping chosen for the order, and your location in relativity to our warehouse in Brooklyn, NY. Please allow up to two weeks for delivery before inquiring about any undelivered shipments.
- Tracking is available for only those shipping methods applicable.
- Back-ordered items can remain pending up to a maximum of 3 months, at which point they are then canceled or closed out. Customers will receive a refund for the cost of any item that could not be procured within this 3 month window of time. Our buyers cycle through the thousands of titles on order and do their best to restock items as quickly as we are capable of obtaining them.
- Pre-ordered items generally ship the week before the release date of the item, unless otherwise stated by the band, it's label or management, or if receipt of product is delayed. Pre-order items may not always be delivered by the release date.
- For a full list of our shipping methods and their respective delivery time estimates, click

How does Pre-order work?
- The OMEGA's pre-order feature allows you to place an order for upcoming items and reserves them for future delivery. 
- Pre-order items will show as OUT OF STOCK on the website, for just that reason, they are not currently in stock yet. The pre-orders remain pending in the same way a backorder does, and will be processed when the item comes into stock at our warehouse. Please understand that sometimes there are issues with manufacturing, or, the band decided not to sign the booklets, or we got 3,000 orders in one day. We will try and get all the pre-orders out one week before release. Sometimes there are issues. We will always email you if there is something wrong.

What does my orders status mean?
- Pending Fulfillment: Your item is on order and not currently in stock .
- Partially Fulfilled: Some of your items have been fulfilled and shipped, some of them are not currently in stock and are still pending on your order.  After 7/8/2011, this should no longer happen, Unless you preordered something at the same time as ordering something else.
- Billed: All of the items on your order have been fulfilled and shipped.
- Closed: Your pending items have been closed out and are no longer on order. A refund will also accompany closed out items.
- VOID: The order has been canceled.
· Note for Cancellations: we have to manually cancel any order for the customer, if you need something cancelled please contact us here.

Why is my item not factory sealed?
- If you have received a CD that is not factory sealed, you most likely ordered an import title or an item from a small or independent vendor. Keep in mind the more obscure the band is, the more likely the packaging will have been assembled by hand. Regardless, the CD is brand new and never played.
- In the event of vinyl orders, if it is open we will package it with the LP on the outside of the sleeve. This prevents the LP from splitting the sleeve as it shifts during shipment. We also try to include a dust jacket for every LP if it does not already have one.
- If an item appears to be damaged, we will also open it to ensure it is still in worthy condition for resale and replace any components needed before shipment.

Do you have a return policy?
- We want all our customers to be happy with their purchases. However, please note that we are not responsible for orders that arrive to you damaged by the shipping courier or manufacturing defects. We will never ship you a damaged item; any damaged or missing packages should be reported to your local Postmaster (or appropriate courier). - If you receive an item other than what you ordered simply contact us through the customer service form located here. All returns for wrong items will get a new copy of the correct item upon receipt of the damaged item in return. - To return an item include an explanation of why the item is being sent back and mail the item standard post to the following address:

The End Records/Omega mailorder
Attn: Returns
88-61 76th Ave, 2nd FL.
Glendale, NY 11385

Note: Make sure you know what you're buying before purchasing. We will not refund an item based on personal distastes! 

Why won't my download work?
- Our downloads are available as ZIP files. A ZIP file contains one or more files that have been compressed to reduce file size. Opening these files will depend on your computer type and the software you are utilizing to run it.
- Compressing multiple files into a single zip file is a common way to store and share large amounts of data. But if you attempt to open these files on a computer without Winzip or an equivalent unzipping program, you'll receive an error message. Follow these steps to retrieve the files without purchasing or installing special software:
1. Right-click on the Zip file you want to open.
2. Choose the Explore option from the menu that appears.
3. Left-click and drag your mouse in the new window to highlight all of the files.
4. Right-click any file and select "Copy" from the menu that appears.
5. Right-click an empty space in your desired destination file for these compressed files, and click "Paste" from the menu that appears.
· Note: you need to have an established customer account to access your download, if you are having problems, please contact customer support.

Why can't I enter my address?
