ah I see! thanks mjharwood. I just wonder why they didn't just put Netossa or Saint walker in the email.
anyone else get a weird charge on their invoice?
what means this????
SHIPMENT AND BILLING DETAILS
Product SKU Product Name Qty Ordered Qty Shipped Total Qty Shipped Amount
Y3185S Club EterniaŽ 2 2 2 $71.70
121 dollars for 2 netossas????
i dont got it
Are people not reading this thread? :hmconf: Myself and others have explained the invoice, yet folks keep posting
"help! my invoice is off!"... heck if my posts are invisible to folks I'll just not bother trying to help in the future!
On a side note, I chalk up the $1.20 extra shipping to the DR fan club. As a subscriber, you have no choice but to join. Thank you and see you next year.
So, Digital River sent me some instructions to retrieve the actual invoice. It reads as follows:
1 2013 Masters of the UniverseŽ Classics Club EterniaŽ Subscription
1 Club EterniaŽ 2013 Subscription - Initial Figure
1 Club Eternia Voting Code
1 2013 Watchmen Club Black Freighter Subscription
1 Club Watchmen 2013 Subscription - Initial Figure
Like many have suggested, the $25 is for the initial figure, so it's not a "real" charge. Mystery solved.
Got my figures and the actual invoice that came with the figures listed the correct price. So I guess it was just a false alarm.
I have a charge for Netossa, $25, shipping which is an outstanding $9.90, and my total comes to $59.90
Is the extra $25 due to King He-Man or is it the subscription fee or am I just being screwed and need to call DR?
If this is redundant, I apologize. Just thought I would seek some help out from the .orgers first.
Check your bank. They didnt charge you that much.
Thank you Stratros*Major, you're a true homie. My mind is at ease and this thread can go to H E double hockey sticks.

I love how the USPS accepted her Wednesday, then she somehow ended up in Illinois, then back into the hands of the USPS yesterday....I guess she wasn't done with her US tour.... :hmlol:
I'm done. I hope Digital River cancel my subs because I am done. I want Ram-Man next month, I want my Mollah sub figure, but I am sick of this. They shipped my subs to the wrong address, but made it so I could not even change my address on the package. As such, UPS sent it back to them this morning because I no longer live at the address they delivered it to. OBVIOUSLY!!! :hmroll:
Anyway, I've had enough of this circus act. I've preordered all of the DC figures at BBTS and will just pay the extra cost to not have to deal with Matty anymore. As for Mollah, you know what, now that I think about it, I already paid for him (and King He-Man), so Matty has no choice but to send him to me or I will file fraud charges on them. As for Ram-Man, I'll figure him out sometime in the summer, if I still even want to get him by then.
This is ridiculous. I should not have to go through this just because I moved.
I got my shipping notice yesterday for my DOS Netossa and Rorshach.
Anyway, the problem is, I called Digital River 4 times since Oct to update my address. I have emailed them several times to update my address. I changed my address on the site in every place it was listed and they STILL were shipping them to the old address. However, last month, I was able to use the My Choice settings to have UPS change the address to my current address for $5. I tried doing that this time, and it would not let me, and Digital River said there was nothing they could do about it even though they are the ones that have to contact UPS to tell them to allow me to do it. And when I called UPS up, they told me I had to wait until the first delivery attempt was made. Well, UPS did not even attempt to deliver it, they just sent the package back to Digital River since I no longer live there. Both companies are my **** list right now because I do not understand how UPS would not even give me the chance to come pick it up from their facility or why DR was just being DR again.
BTW, UPS also tried to deliver the package at 5:39PM, so the apartment office was closed.
I'm sorry your old place wasn't nice enough to help you out and that you weren't able to get it figured out with UPS. :shsad:
I've read about your past address problems, and I don't blame you for being angry. I would be, too. There's no reason that they shouldn't have been able to get your 2012 sub straightened out.
But here's the thing that people don't seem to realize (and it seems to fall on deaf ears anytime I bring it up), and it is kind of/sort of DR's fault, but at the same time something that people just kind of need to be aware of.
Under normal circumstances (if DR doesn't screw anything up and things actually work correctly, which they didn't properly do for you last year), if you change your shipping address in the middle of the year whether it be over the phone with Digital River or now using the subscription management page, the NEXT time that you sub renews after you've done that, it SHOULD go to the new address.
The problem is that unlike the renewals that occur from February through December, the January shipment is kind of different in that it generates when you sign up for the sub, not days before the items ship out.
Let me word this another way. Let's replace the word renewal with "spawn". You have your master subscription order with the info associated with it (addresses, credit card, etc), and each monthly order "spawns" off of that, pulling the information from the master sub AT THE TIME that the "spawning" occurs. For February through December, each of those respective monthly orders "spawn" off of the master subscription order during those respective months, typically days before the order ships (provided there's no delays with the stock). However, the January shipment "spawns" off of the master sub order in July/August at the time of signing up for the sub (that's why we get a break down of what the first month's charge will be and a preauthorization at that time).
Because of this, even if Digital River hadn't screwed up and had actually properly changed your address in your general account, your 'master' 2012 sub, and even your 'master' 2013 sub, that January order already "spawned" off of the 2013 sub back during the summer when the old information was still in place, so that is the info that was "locked in" with that order. So basically they would have had to actually go into that specific January shipment order and adjusted the address in there specifically in order for it to be corrected.
Now, by no means is this your fault for not knowing this, Dr. Kain (and since DR kept screwing up your address change anyway, there's a good chance they would have screwed up that one as well). Frankly the way they do things is often confusing and requires A LOT of digging to figure out how 2 + 2 add up to 4. But people need to be made more aware of this to know to look out for it. This will likely continue to be an issue for the first shipment of the year for people who change addresses after signing up.
The thing is, I asked them specifically about the 2013 sub and the guy told me to call them by Jan 4th to make sure my address is updated. I called them on both Dec 28th and Jan 3rd and was told my new address was indeed in the system.
Anyway, I have an easy solution to make sure this doesn't happen again, DON'T SUBSCRIBE!!
I was thinking about still getting a sub for 2014 if they were going to do the vintage characters and no one else, especially since I would be signing up for the DC sub, but I have no reason to. I will just go to BBTS to get everything I want from this point forward.
