Hey all. I ordered The Pirate Movie from strrets online a week or so ago. Never got a confirmation email so I checked on the website and it is still listed as processing. Emailed them and I got this back...

So my question is is this OK. I thought I read about this happening from time to time with international orders but I couldnt dig up that thread. ANyone here familiar with streets online (this is my first order with them)? Is this normal and am I ok with sending them this info.

Thanks for any help and/or advice.

I placed my first and only order with a UK website called MVC who are obviously related to Streets Online (both sites have exactly the same layout and design and customer service contact details) and got the same email as you from them not once but three times (I'm in Australia).

Each time I responded back with the required information and told them that I had already given them this info. My order eventually shipped about two weeks later.

So the answer is that yes this appears to be their normal practice so don't worry about sending them this info but don't be surprised if they ask for it a couple of times before they send the order.

StreetsOnline, MVC and Woolworths are all well-known UK retailers that are part of the same group (the latter two have high street stores as well) - so don't worry about it :)
