Play.com Confusion

Hey, I pre-ordered my GTA IV Special Edition copy off Play.com (UK) on the 23rd April (Wednesday) and after a couple of days of my order saying 'Order Placed', it now says its processing. I read the 'what does this mean?' section and it says:

Quote:
  • We are currently processing payment for your order, which should be completed within 24 hours.
  • Once payment is complete, we aim to dispatch orders within a further 24 hours.
  • If we experience problems processing payment we will contact you by email to help you to resolve the problems, if possible
Okay, so by either late today or early tomorrow my payment should be completed.. Then it will be dispatched on either late Sunday or early Monday. However, I thought that they don't work on Sundays, so it should be dispatched on Monday. Heres the part where I am confused. Play.com deliveries take 3-5 days, so does that mean I will get later on in the week or on the Tuesday (release) because I pre-ordered it?

Cheers for the help.

It sounds like your order is being set up for delivery. Since you said it takes 3-5 days to deliver you should have it on Weds or Thurs.

Thats the thing though, does it take 3-5 days to deliver when you pre-order?

^its hard to say, you could get it in one day or you could get it in 3 days or 5....

but personally with play.com (not pre orders though) they deliver faster then they say they will

Same thing just happened to me now. It said processing and now it has been dispatched so Tuesday will be the 3rd day, I hope it comes then.

It says: Posted: 25/04/2008

Does that mean my order was posted? I.E. it was payed for. Or is that the date it was dispatched? I.E. sent. If so, that means I should get it Monday-Wednesday, but it just changed from processing to dispatched today. (26th) Ugh, Play is confusing.

Cheers for the responses people..

You should get it on Tuesday or Wednesday then.

Saturday and Sunday don't count as working days.

Saturday counts as a working day. Sunday doesn't.

I've received mail via post on Saturdays before so yeah, I'm sure it counts as a working day. May be different on Play, where did you hear it wasn't from?

Local sorting offices don't open or operate on Sundays, only major regional hubs do. Post is delivered in most areas from Monday-Sunday.

The reason I didn't order from Play was because as a company based outside of the United Kingdom, I don't trust them for timely deliveries.
