Processing Times

Our processing times range from two to eight working days depending on the availability of the products. We strive to ensure that processing times are as short as possible, however logistics are complicated and sometimes our stock levels might be out due to human or computer error, our suppliers may supply the wrong product or not at all due to factors outside our control.

Sale Processing Times (applies to Friday Frenzy and all store-wide sales)

  • Orders will be shipped on a first in first out basis
  • Five to ten additional working days of processing time
  • Orders may be shipped in separate packages or shipped from separate warehouses
  • While we will do our best to fulfil every order, circumstances may lead to the cancellation in part or whole of some orders.

  • Classic games and related accessories (Chess clocks etc) may in some cases incur a one to three day delay

Christmas Processing Times November 1 to January 31 ("the Christmas Period")

The above processing times relate to non Christmas periods.  During the Christmas Period processing times can be extended due to back logs caused by Christmas demand. While in most cases Games Paradise will be able to adhere to normal processing times, delays from our suppliers and general demand make it difficult.  We ask for your patience and rest assure all orders placed before our Christmas cut off times will reach you prior to the big day.

If your order is for a birthday or you are going away and you require your order as a matter of urgency, please email your order confirmation to customer service and we will attempt to prioritise it, but please only do this if it necessary. 

Prior to Christmas is a stressful time for everyone and our Warehouse and Customer Service teams are working their hardness to make sure your presents arrive. Remember, we're on your side.
