Retailer no longer accepting any orders of any kind online.
Due to HMV being taken over by administration firm Deloitte yesterday, the retailer’s online service has been suspended with immediate effect.
That means you can no longer search for or order products via HMV.com, with visits to the website instead auto-routing to a statement confirming that no purchases can be made via the retailer’s online portal until further notice.
This latest move is in addition to HMV no longer accepting pre-paid gift cards as a method of payment for any products in-store, which for the moment at least remain open.
With regards to our sister site PreOrder-IQ.com, that site’s staff are in the process of removing all links to HMV from their databases. Both us and PreOrder-IQ.com recomment that if you have any existing pre-orders with the embattled retailer we strongly suggest you make arrangements at other retails., as the future for HMV is looking increasingly uncertain at this current point.
Recently Play.com also confirmed that they’re ducking out from the traditional online retail business, transforming their website to only be an online marketplace where people can buy and sell products at their own leisure, so it’s fair to say that the online options for gamers to purchase titles is changing masssively.
Here’s hoping there won’t be any more retail casualties in the months ahead.
