Incorrect Birthday

Our resolution to this issue (http://www.funimation.com/forum/showthread.php?5178) caused a number of users to have incorrect profile information, including birthdate. We can resolve this issue, please just put in a ticket with the reason code "Subscription Access" and your correct birthdate.

Blank/Black Player

We have recently updated our video player. If you are seeing a blank player, or if you attempt to play a video and the video does not play, please try refreshing your browser a few times. If this does not resolve the issue, please clear your browser's cache. If this also does not resolve the issue, please make a new ticket with the reason code "Other Video" and we will be happy to further assist you.

Can't Log Into Shop

If you are unable to log into the Shop portion of the site, but CAN log into the rest of the site, please submit a ticket with the reason code "Other Technical". We should be able to resolve most of these type of issues in a business day or less at this time.

Just Subscribed, EVS Doesn't Work

We are experiencing an issue where some users are signing up for EVS and then are unable to immediately watch EVS videos on the site.

We do not have any user-side work arounds for this issue, but we can resolve the issue in most cases from our side at this time.

We're aware that there's currently an issue with scrolling and the loading of additional episodes on the app. We are working with Phunware, the app's developer, to address and resolve this issue.

Charged twice for pre-order

Your card is actually only being charged once. When you purchase a pre-order from the FUNimation Shop, your card will be pre-authorized, which means that it will appear as if you have been charged for the title. The pre-authorization charge should drop off of your card after approximately 10 days after you have sent in your pre-order. The full purchase amount of the pre-order will not actually be processed and charged to your card until your pre-order has been shipped. Find out more
