Hi, sloner52 -
Welcome to the Anime Today forum!
When ordering with a visa or debit card, we are only at liberty to charge your account when the item ships from our warehouse. I apologize for the inconvenience. If you would still prefer to pay in advance, we do accept checks and money orders.
If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate let us know.
Thanks so much for reaching out to us!
