    That's being kind. It's THEIR fault if they didn't charge adequately. Some people have a tight budget and then they arrogantly, without warning, do this. After 4 YEARS! After being hung-up on, being told my credit card info is changed (but, of course, come shipment time, it is not), email after email, etc.. This STILL happens. This is beyond "accidents sometimes happen." With such a horrendous track record for customer service, Mattel should be doing EVERYTHING to avoid this type of incident.

    I will be amazed if the "My sub" page is up before January, much less actually working right. Why is it that every other site can do this simply enough? But wait . . . it's our fault.

    Ok, so they charged me 3 authos for a total of $142.48 last month, but now I have a charge for $48.12 POSTED for this month as of 11/8. So why are they charging so early this month?? This is NOT carry over from last month like some posted.

    the charge is from last month's order dated 10/12....which tells me they are catching up to billing us short last month if you have both subscriptions.......which by the way also cost me a nice 35.00 overdraft fee.....(i'm so happy right now)

    Bakull, with the company I work for, if we screw up and cause you to overdraw, we cover the fee. DR should do the same, since there was no notification.

    My renewal failed because I left enough in my account for the November figures, not realizing they screwed up last month.

    Now, I have to wait until payday to get my sub reinstated, which is the day before the sale...yay.

    I spoke to Digital River about this earlier today and they told me they had a software issue on their end last month when billing was taking place so they are now charging me 2 additional charges (one on the 8th and one today) for a total of 5 separate charges for my October subs. They assured me this would not occur for November, but I'm not going to hold my breath.

    They are charging me $88 more than what my subs are for this month. I am not happy.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    I have been saying that the My Sub page would not be up(actually working) in time for the January 2013 figures to bill/ship, which was the whole point of the flamboyant promise "things will be better! We promise!", that was made to lure everyone into buying a 2013 sub. What a joke. Keep in mind they have been promising this page for more than a year, and touted it's "coming soon!" to get folks to pony up. The whole Matty, DR MOTUC thing has deserved to crash and burn multiple times every year, yet loyal MOTU fans like us keep it going. Gullible us.

    There was a glitch that had something to do with castle Grayskull pre-orders, that caused the October billing to be split in three. Problem is, one of them was charged on November 9th, overdrawing my bank account, and DR seems to think that it's my banks fault. I explained that they should have sent an e-mail or something to notify customers, and the supervisor in the Escalation department, Brady, said there was nothing they could do and that they recieved authorization from my bank (otherwise the charge would have been disregarded, and attempted again in 5 days, as per their policy) but for some reason, the charge went through and over drew my account. Gotta love their complete lack of accountability. He said he agreed they should have sent out a notification, but the freaking supervisor of the escalation department had no help to offer. Luckily my bank only charges a fee if the overdraft is more than $10.00, and this charge was less.

    I figured this would be the case. Thats why I went ahead an called in an corrected my billing information over the phone to be sure it went thru in time for the new subs billing to start.

    I figure we wont see the "My Sub page" till after january. I honestly expect that to be the "big announcement" at NYTF for us.

    I think he's the only one there who can do the job correctly. He must be the person TG hired to deal with customer service. Now they just need to hire more and get rid of the others that remain so that they can have a more reputable team.

    October I only got charged for Frosta. this month they charged me for Cy-Chop & Rattlor. I spoke with Bradley who runs the DR mattycollector site. He said billing had issues last month so they were charging for the figures that carried over and said the issue seemed to be fixed and so far it is my november sub items all three were just one $78.00 charge not three separate $26.00 charges.

    It's not so much that it happens all the time, it's that it happens way more often than it should.

    I, luckily, have had little to no problems with DR and I've had multiple subscriptions since the very beginning. I have, however, heard some pretty terrible horror stories from fellow .orgers that prompt me to always be vigilant with my bank accounts.

    Unfortunately, yes. Or rather, this year has just been a giant train wreck. This year DR has almost made me want to just stop collecting the line entirely.

    Just got a message saying that they are giving me a refund of $8.95 on my 30th Anniversary subscription, after my "request for a refund"(?)

    Did anyone already get an email their substriction was renewed? I changed some card details and only received the "get ready,your sub will be renewed" email.
    I want to know whether I need to order on the day off.

    I got my TOD Sorceress shipped even though the charge fell off my account, and I didn't have the money to cover it in there. Yay...but I'll get hit this coming payday.

    Should I be concerned?

    So with the whole Procrustus delay I didn't get a subscription renewal email for december and at this point I haven't gotten charged for it either. However I did get a subscription cancellation email showing Dekker and Filmation Randor as my last shipment. I'm wary to jump the gun and think I have lost out on Mosquistor and Procrustus but at the same time it has been bugging me. I tried checking the matty forums to see if other fans had the same thing happen but at this time the server seems down. Does anyone know anything about this or should I try calling digital river and hope I get somewhere with that?
    Mattel I demand the following:

    I would definitely call Digital River. Some people have issues with the CS, but it's better than doing nothing. It might be a simple billing snafu and they might be able to fix it for you. I'd hate to see you miss out on Mosquitor and Procrustus, and I wouldn't trust DR enough to think they'll just work through it.

    Just a reminder: the second charge of the year will be coming in February, and that second charge for the past two years has been the one they charge to an old credit card if you've changed it, and then they cancel your sub. I'd strongly suggest that folks who did change their card anytime in recent months check before the Feb charges go through to make sure the right card is associated with the sub. I can't recall the title to search for it, but there is a thread with a how-to for checking that on the Matty site (since there is still no page to manage our subs, and likely never will be). If anyone recalls which thread it is, please post the link. It may do no good to go in a day or two before the charges are set to go through, but it would be nice not to see the yearly rash of sub cancellations right before King He-Man comes out. The annual idiocy last year cost a number of fans both Fisto and Shadow Weaver.

    What are you talking about Scott? Look what Matty has to say about their exciting new feature?

    NEW! My Subscriptions Section

    For 2013, we’re stoked to launch the all-new My Subscriptions section. If you’re a subscription holder, this will be your go-to spot to manage everything related to your subscriptions account. You can change/update your credit card information, shipping address, email address, and even combine or separate shipments. We expect to launch around the 10th of January and subscribers will receive an announcement and link to the new section as soon as it’s live.
    January Subscription Key Dates

    If you’re a subscription holder, here are the important dates to note for January 2013: Your subscription will renew 5 calendar days before the on-sale date, at which time your card will be authorized for the full amount of your order, so plan to have funds available before Thursday, January 10th

    Where could any problems come in here? I'm sure after the debacle of this not working for the first billing date for 2013 subs, they will have it ironed out before the sub cancelling happens in Feb right?

    They are lucky, I won't cancel my sub until I get my sub exclusives. After that, I am not playing the "You ship to the wrong address, I pay UPS $5 each month to correct" game.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Ok does someone here know Digital River's US number? They are really making me mad dealing with their outsourced customer service. With my 2012 sub being cancelled and not getting Mosquitor or Procrustus I am furious. I called last week and was told that I would hear something within two to three business days. I called back yesterday to discover the reason I hadn't heard anything was because the order writer was out sick! Seriously?!?!?!? There's only one person doing the orders? No wonder it takes so long for people to get their items.
