Q: Do you have a retail store?
A: At this time, TacticalAsia.com sell online only. We do not have a retail store or showroom. Our office is not open to the public.
Q: Do you accept Cash on Delivery (COD)? Do you allow pick-ups?
A: We do not do Cash on Delivery (COD), meet-ups, and pick-ups. To offer competitive prices, we keep our costs low by outsourcing the shipments to courier companies.
Q: How do I place an order?
A: Add to cart the item(s) you wish to buy and proceed to checkout. A step-by-step process will guide you through checkout. Enter your complete billing/shipping details and you will receive an order confirmation and payment instructions (if you chose Bank Deposit, Money Remittance as payment method) in the email address you supplied. Your order will be processed and shipped after we confirm your payment.
Our shipping cut-off is 2pm. If we received and confirmed your payment by 2pm, we will pack and ship out your order to the courier that day. If after the 2pm cut-off, your order will be shipped out the following business day. We do not ship out packages on Sundays and holidays. For assistance on how to order, you may contact our mobile numbers +63 917 5122018 or +63 922 8122018, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also view our video tutorial here.
Q: When is the deadline to pay for my order if I choose bank deposit or money remittance as my payment method?
A: The deadline to pay orders via offline option (bank deposit, money remittance) is the next banking day from date of order. For example, if you placed an order on Monday, it must be paid by Tuesday (assuming it’s not a bank holiday). If you placed your order on a Friday, it must be paid the following Monday. If you placed it on Saturday, it must be paid the following Monday. If you placed it on Sunday, it must be paid the next day, Monday.
Unless an extension is requested prior to the deadline, our system will automatically cancel unpaid orders the following banking day at 5 pm.
If your order is cancelled, you can always place a new order again but with no assurance that the item will still be available.
Q: After you ship out, how long will I receive my item(s)?
A: The courier will deliver your package usually after 1-2 business days from ship-out date or the day we sent your package to the courier if your address is within Metro Manila, 2-3 business days for provincial addresses. A business day does not include Sundays, holidays, and the day the package is shipped out. There are no deliveries on Sundays and holidays.
If your package is shipped out on Friday, the first business day is Saturday, second business day is Monday (no courier deliveries on Sundays), and third business day is Tuesday. So if your delivery address is in Metro Manila, you will receive your package on Saturday (1st business day) or Monday (2nd business day). If your delivery address is outside Metro Manila, you will receive your package on Monday (2nd business day) or Tuesday (3rd business day).
Please note that we are not responsible for delay due to fortuitous events such as typhoon, flooding, civil unrest, offloading of packages from plane, etc., and in case the address you provided is incomplete or cannot be located. If you need to receive your package on a certain date and are not sure if it will reach you on time, kindly contact us for estimate. We do not accept rush orders, i.e., delivery of package on the same day you made payment.
Q: Do you accept rush deliveries or special arrangements when my package will be delivered?
A: We do not accept rush deliveries and special arrangements as to the exact time your package will be delivered. As we only enlist the services of third-party couriers, we cannot guarantee that your package will arrive in any particular time frame. Moreover, we have no control over weather-related or natural disasters and, as such, we cannot guarantee timely delivery during these unforeseen circumstances.
Q: What methods of payment are accepted?
A: We accept payment through (1) Bank Deposits in Banco De Oro (BDO), Bank of Philippine Islands (BPI) and Metrobank; (2) Money Remittance via Western Union, Cebuana Lhuillier, MLhuillier, Palawan Pawnshop, and LBC; and (3) PayPal.
For payment via local or international wire transfer, please include wire transfer charges in the amount that you will deposit as the banks deduct fees from it.
Q: Do you accept credit or debit card payments?
A: Yes. If you wish to pay using your credit or debit card, just click "Check out with PayPal". You don't need a PayPal account. PayPal is our credit/debit card processor.
Q: If I pay via PayPal, can I ship to any address I want?
A: For payments via PayPal, please make sure the Ship-To Recipient and Address in PayPal Transaction Details is the same as that entered in our website to avoid delays. We ship to the recipient and address indicated in PayPal Transaction page by default. In case we noticed a significant variance, we will give you the option to ship to the address indicated in our website, or cancel your previous payment and pay us again but this time indicate the correct recipient and shipping address in PayPal's ship-to address. If you choose the later, we will charge you additional P50 since PayPal charges us fees even for cancelled/refunded payments.
Please note that PayPal does not allow you to change the country of your shipping address. This means that if your PayPal account is linked to a bank account or credit card in Country X, you cannot have items shipped to Country Y. In such case, please choose another payment option, such as bank deposit or money remittance. We will cancel all orders where the ship-to address in PayPal transaction details and our website are of different country.
Q: Why can’t I place a new order using the same email address? Why do I see the message that my email address is already in use and that I should enter a different one?
A: You have to log in to your account first before you place an order. The log in link is located in the upper right hand corner of our website.
If you do not log in, the computer system will think you are a new customer and wants to create a new account. Only 1 email address can be associated with 1 account. That's why you will see an error that the email address is already in use. The solution is to log in first. The advantage of using 1 account for all your orders is that you can accumulate reward points and exchange it for future discounts.

Q: Does your site have live inventory?
A: Yes, our site has live inventory of our products. We try our best to maintain an up-to-date inventory system. However, it does not mean our system is perfect. Should an item you ordered turn out to be out of stock, we will refund your payment.
You can also check if the quantity you like is available by choosing the quantity you desire and adding it to cart. If we don't have enough quantity, our system will display the appropriate message on screen.

We are not responsible for any delay and inaccurate updates in their websites. There are some isolated instances when our customers have already received their packages but the tracking is yet to be updated.
