PRESALE ITEMS - All PRESALE items have release dates stated in the title of the listing.  These items will only be available to ship AFTER the item has been released and is in hand.  Presale release dates are subject to change without notice.  We do not guarantee release dates set by publishers or manufacturers.  If you purchase multiple presale items your order will not ship until after the last item is in stock.  Presale items will ship within 5 - 10 days of us receiving them if your entire order is ready to fill.

IN STOCK ITEMS - All in stock items will ship with in 5 - 10 business days of the order being placed in most cases.  If you place an order for a presale item that is going to be released or the release of the presale items has been delayed that will delay your shipment.  If your order contains both PRESALE and IN STOCK items, your order will not ship until after the last item is in stock.

COMBINED SHIPPING - Golden Apple Comics offers buyers a combined shipping cost option across multiple orders.  Our combined shipping option allows you to add additional orders with free shipping. 

You pay our standard shipping on your first order.  On orders after that you can select our combined shipping option to combine your orders and get free shipping.

When you select combined shipping, shipping times will vary based on the number of books, the final release date for an order, and frequency of orders. 


SPLIT SHIPMENTS - Split shipments are done as a courtesy or as part of our combined shipping system. If you do not qualify for a split shipment you will be subject to shipping charges.  Please email us to request a split shipment.

IN STORE PICK UPS - Local pick ups will be filled as the items are available.  We will email customers when the pick ups are filled, and let them know the items are being sent to the shop.  We will partially fulfill your in-store pick-ups so you do not need to wait for the entire order to be available to receive items from your order.  Please allow 48 hrs from the fulfillment email for your order to arrive at the shop for pick up.
