Thread: IMPORTANT: Preorder Trainz now with 10% off !

    Default IMPORTANT: Preorder Trainz now with 10% off !

    In case you just popped in to the forum and weren't aware, you can now preorder Trainz from the Auran site with a 10% discount for a limited time. This way it will be sent to you direct and you should get it before Xmas, otherwise you will have to wait until next when it hits the shops. It's first-in, first-out so get ordering!! If you're not convinced you may want to check out the Trainz forums over at Auran to read about besotted beta-testers and grown men drooling over their keyboards...

    P.S. And no, I don't work for Auran, I'm just another drooler :D.

    Default Bill now, ship later?

    I have pre-ordered because I love train sims and figure this is the quickest way to get it, but as I have posted at the Auran Trainz forum, the "bill my card now for shipment in December" order policy is not a good first impression of Auran's sales practices. Frankly it smacks of "We need your money now to get this product out the door." The 10% discount could well disappear based on loss of use of the money (I'm letting Auran use my money for the next two months, and any discount is offset by loss of interest that money would otherwise earn for me), and who can tell in these uncertain political and economic times where the exchange rate will be in December? Am I the only one that thinks this is not the best way to introduce yourself to thousands of potential customers?

    I know that Auran is not an USA company but how can I pre-order Trainz so that I can get it in December? Which credit cards do they accept? Jeffrey.

    Appears the "shop" doesn't like debit cards (even those with Visa such as Lloyds TSB Delta) just pure credit cards. I suspect you also need to enter your name exactly as it appears on the card, initials and all.
