FAQs

I can’t get logged into the store what’s going on?

Is my account set up on the new store?

More than just a redesign, Dorksidetoys 2.0 is built from the ground up on a completely new modern platform. We’ve migrated user accounts and order history, but passwords could not be migrated. You should have received an email asking to reactivate your account. Click that link and you will be prompted through reactivation and a password reset. If you prefer, you can even use the same password from the previous store. Then in order to access your account, click the Account icon in the header of any page and It will take you to the Sign-In page.

 

Are my old Pre-Orders still good?

Yes, absolutely!  Any orders placed prior to the opening of the new store are still valid and will be fulfilled from our “old” platform. In fact, we’re leaving our “old” platform online so that you can continue to log into that account and check status or cancel orders. You will not need a password reset to access your old account. Your existing login will work, you only need a password reset for the new store.

The “old” store will now reside under the www.shopdorksidetoys.com. If you need help or have questions please contact us via the help link on the front page or email help@dorksidetoys.com and we will assist you.

 

How do I find my orders now?

Orders placed on the new store can be located in My Account in the Pending Orders sections. From here you can make revisions, update payment details, or cancel the order.

Existing orders placed on our previous store are located in the My Account section under Order History. To make revisions or cancellations to those orders you will need to access your account on that platform which is now located at shopdorksidetoys.com. Your existing login credentials are still valid.

I am ordering from a country outside the US, why can I not track my package?

For all FedEx Economy International shipments, FedEx recommends utilizing the local postal service of your country to track the package, not FedEx.com itself.

Please keep in mind that tracking may not update until the shipment reaches your local postal service prior to delivery. This could take 15-20 business days from the date of shipment to occur. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Thank you for shopping Dorkside Toys!

 

Why does Fed Ex say my tracking number is not valid?

Your FedEx Economy International shipment cannot be tracked using FedEx.com. You must use your home country’s postal service to track your shipment.
