I do apologize for any confusion. Payment is only completed once in-store. We do not have a pay ahead option available at this time.
Good afternoon @Brian33a
Thank you for contacting micro center. For the in store reservation, when the order is placed online it does not charge the card at that time when it is placed. The reason the card has to be in store for the pickup is because they need the physical card to process the purchase in-store and we have to run the credit card through our system and can not manually enter it. The only option we would have to be able to pay for an item online would be if the item was being shipped to you.
Good Afternoon @Brian33a
I sent a email to you directly in regards to some options we may have for this.
I am in an eerily similar situation with my workplace. I just got off an unhelpful phone call with the national desk that told me "Just order it for shipping". Would it be possible to also see these options? I am posting from my personal account because the site would not let me use my work VOIP number to make an account with my work email. It seems like MicroCenter really does not want to do business with other businesses.
Good afternoon @andersen
I have sent an email directly to you with the same information as well.
