How do I find a product for a specific anime?

You can do this in a couple of ways. You can either visit the show site for the anime and click on the Products tab, or you can go to the Shop and click on the title of the anime in the "Shop by Show" scrolling list on the right side of the page.

Can you recommend an anime to me to buy?

Go to the Shop. Click on "Browse" in the header. Then scroll through the list of genres on the left and choose the ones that you like. You can also head over to our forum and ask our extremely helpful and nice forum community.

Do you ship to P.O. Boxes?

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover credit cards, PayPal, and FUNimation.com gift cards. We do not accept debit cards, third party gift cards, cash, or checks.

Is my payment secure?

Absolutely! We have a third-party service from McAfee perform a daily PCI test; and our order processor is independently PCI compliant and is validated on an ongoing basis.

Why was my card charged a second time for a pre-ordered item?

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 should drop off of your card a few days after you have sent in your pre-order. The timing of this depends on your financial institution. 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.

If you believe that you have been charged twice for the same pre-order, please check your full banking or credit card statements and confirm whether the full amount of your pre-order was actually deducted twice. You should see that the funds were only deducted once overall while the earlier charge was only a pre-authorization and was debited back to your account later. Note: Some banks will place a hold on your payment and then return the funds after approximately 10 days. In this case, please check your statement to see if the bank has removed the hold from your account after your pre-order has shipped.

If the full amount of your pre-order was deducted twice, please visit www.funimation.com/support and choose "Shop - Orders" as the reason for contact.

What is your return and refund policy?

Please go here to read our Return and Refund policies.

Does the FUNimation.com Shop sell gift cards?

Please note that you will still need to provide a credit card or use PayPal when you check out.
