INVENTORY AND ORDER FULFILLMENT
Our inventory changes from moment to moment. It is therefore possible that merchandise that you order via this website will show to be in stock when, in fact, it is out of stock. If this occurs in connection with an order you place, we will notify you as quickly as possible and in any case by not later than the next business day.
If we cannot immediately ship an order that you have placed, we will offer you the option of, a.) keeping the order on file and filling it when the merchandise you order is back in stock or, b.) cancelling the transaction.
With the exception of pre-orders as set forth below, will not charge your credit or debit card until we ship your order.
For merchandise that is out of stock, we will use our best efforts give you a date when it will again be available. But merchandise availability will always be in the hands of our manufacturers and suppliers and we cannot be responsible for the accuracy of the information that they provide to us.
PRE-ORDERS FOR HIGH-DEMAND MERCHANDISE
Frequently, when manufacturers announce the coming release of a new item, initial demand for that item far exceeds the supply available for retail sale.
In such situations, COMPETITIVE CAMERAS will accept pre-orders on a first, come, first served basis. To secure your delivery position on a high-demand item, we will require a deposit equal to ten percent of the retail price. When we are able to fill your order, we will charge your debit or credit card for the remaining balance due and ship your order.
Should you decide that you no longer want to hold a delivery position for a high-demand item, you may so notify us prior to us shipping your order and we will refund your deposit to the same credit or debit card to which it was charged.

COMPETITIVE CAMERAS accepts payments via MasterCard, VISA, American Express and Discover. If prior arrangements are made, COMPETITIVE CAMERAS will also accept payments via wire transfer or via the Automated Clearing House (ACH). International orders require prior arrangements. Contact COMPETITIVE CAMERAS at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements for international orders.
We do not charge your account until we ship your order.

All orders are FOB at our shipping door in Dallas, Texas USA. Damage to merchandise incurred as a result of shipping is the responsibility of the carrier.
