How long do orders take to ship?

We ask for at least 1-2 business days to process a new order. There are many times in which an order may ship same day, depending on the queue of orders proceeding it.  Orders that request expedited shipping will only apply to the shipping method itself. We are not always able to capture and process next-day shipping through our systems if one is placed after business hours or towards end of business day. We are closed during weekends and national holidays. Orders placed during weekends will ship Monday; orders placed during a national holiday will ship the next business day.

Custom FA Plexworks orders require 7-10 business days to process, as we are performing personalized services. Orders with custom artwork will not ship until the custom job is completed.

I'm in a hurry! What about Overnight/Next Day Shipping?

We still ask for 1-2 business days to process your order. Transit time refers to the shipment after it leaves our warehouse, not the time it takes to ship and deliver. 

Also, please note that if your order ships on Friday, it may not arrive on Saturday. FedEx or USPS regards business days as Monday-Friday. Please consider this before ordering.  If you are ordering today, and need it tomorrow, please do not complete checkout.

Can I change, cancel, or combine separate orders once placed?

We can perform edits to orders if we're able to catch it before it has completed processing and ready to ship.  However we cannot guarantee that the order can be adjusted, as it may have physically left the warehouse even as shipping status has not updated yet.

Pre-orders, however can be cancelled before the advertised launch date.

Please make sure that your name, address and other information is entered properly during checkout, as we may not receive your email in time to change it before the order ships.

I'm ordering as a guest. How do I get order updates?

We send order updates to guests via email.  Please whitelist in your spam folder. 

If I have a question regarding my order, who can I contact?

Product damage and Filing a return request

We ask that you open and inspect a product's packaging within 5 business days (business days are Monday-Friday) to be eligible for a refund of the order subtotal (less shipping if the product is not defective). A product's packaging is NOT the box that the product was shipped in.  It is the product's own branded box, when applicable. If there is any damage to this packaging, you must inform us by email ( and send a photo of the damaged packaging. Should you request a RMA, failure to inspect and report damaged product packaging within 5 business days of receipt will result in a 25% handling charge deducted from your refund.

I hear that you ship to Puerto Rico.  Why doesn't the store allow me to register with my PR address?

Puerto Rico is a USA territory.  Often, customers from PR forget this, so the store does not recognize the designation, or will give them international rates when they could instead ship domestically. 

Here is an example of a properly formatted PR address:

[customer name]
Villas del Rio 213 calle Rio Yaguez
Humacao, Puerto Rico, 00791
United States

More information regarding how to format Puerto Rico addresses is available at the USPS website:

  3. Enter Country, State/Province and Zip Code information on the form to calculate your shipping rate.

Federal law prohibits lowering customs value or sending orders as a gift.  You are responsible for all VAT and customs taxes if applicable.  These are not included in the product or shipping price.

24mm pushbutton or 30mm pushbutton - which one should I buy? 

Within the fighting game genre, Japanese arcade buttons commonly consist of two diameter sizes: 24 millimeter and 30 milllimeter (mm).

In most configurations, 30mm represents your action button.  These are front facing, appearing most prominent on your Fightstick control panel.  Option button, such as "Start", "Select", or more recently "Option", "Touch", or "Share" are usually 24mm and sit either behind the joystick or far from the action buttons.

Here is a visual representation of a common Fightstick control panel.   We mark 24mm buttons in green, and 30mm buttons in Orange.
