Anyone understand Vesalia's pre order system for vampires? It says not to pay but how do I do that? Just select bank transfer? But what about when I do have to pay, I want to do it via PP.

I've emailed them to ask but got no reply, I just dont understand their system!

I don't think it is mysterous or confusing what is written on their page.  it is a pre-order.  You pay when the cards are to be released.  You are on the waiting list.

I fully understand that it is a pre-order, but the site specifically says "Please don't make a payment until you are asked to do so", but it asks me when I go to the checkout screen.

What happens when the paypal screen comes up asking for payment, do I just close it and wait? Will it even ask for payment in the first place? When I hit 'buy' in the checkout how does it 'pre-order' the item? Do I just select bank transfer and they will send a paypal request later?

Everything about the way the system currently goes ahead suggests you will be actually buying it. I don't like to blindly poke around when there is a large amount of money being asked for.

I agree instructions are highly confusing and I had the same questions in my mind when I did my "order". However, there were no problems and everything became clear when I walked through the process. Don't remeber any details but I assume site did not actually require payment at any point. Perhaps it was email invoice I got which I did not pay as instructed.

Order worth Is zero, dont bother people with fears.
Instructions Arent Best, but process Is:

By finishing "order" you express interest.

When it comes, you Are asked to pay.

If you refuse, you Are dropped, but free to reapply and wait.

That is how small markets operate.

"dont bother people with fears."

I am trying really hard to not be insulted. How am I bothering anyone with fears? I am trying to understand how the pre-order system works because the actual process is different compared to the instructions provided. The answers could help others who are maybe to afraid to ask because of the responses they may get for asking.

@Jari Thanks for the reply, do you recall if you selected to pay by PayPal or bank transfer?

Its feat of losing money, without trying to.
 
  Process Is not so unclear to have fear of.

Process Is well explained, do not fear the answers

Cannot remember but knowing myself I bet I chose bank transfer because I probably thought that it won't trigger any kind of integration (like PayPal) and order will go through without paying.
