- Do I need to create account to place an order? No. You can check out using the guest checkout option so no additional information needs to be added.

Why is my order status showing as pending/on hold?
This is because we have not been able to complete your order yet. Most commonly it is because we are awaiting the payment from you (if you selected the Cash, Bank transfer or Money order option). It can also be because there is a small issue with your order that requires you to let us know some information. You should have received a note from us about this but it will also show at the bottom of the actual order when you view it.
