Placing an Order

How do I place an order?

Placing an order with Badminton Bay is easy. There's no need to even create an account. Purchasing without an account is possible, although creating an account will have benefits like reviewing order status and keep track of your previous orders (please refer to the benefits of having an account).
Order can also be accepted via email, contact us page or phone.

Here are the steps you need to follow to place an order:

Order Form Problem and Troubleshooting

Your satisfaction is important to us. If you encounter any error message or having difficulties completing our online order, please read through the suggestions below:

Unsure if your order is successful?
Sometimes an order will be successful even if you get an error message on the last step. Please check the status of the last order in "My Account" before trying to place the order again.

My Shopping Cart is Empty.
If your Shopping Cart is empty or items are missing from it although you have added the items to cart, it is likely that you have your browser cookies turned off or that you have not logged on to your account.

Can't add items.
If you can't add an item to the Shopping Cart or the "Add to Cart" button is not appearing on the product page, please contact us to report the problem.

Error message on payment page.
Verify that the credit card number was entered correctly. Make sure that you have selected the correct credit card type and expiration date. If you are using a new card, please be sure that you have activated the card before using it.

Discount Coupon or Gift Voucher code is not accepted.
Be sure that you are entering the Redeem Code exactly as it appears on you email, and that the code has not expired. If the code is correct, then it's likely that your order does not meet the qualifications for using the coupon or voucher. If you feel that this is not the case, please contact us for further support.

Discount Coupon or Gift Voucher code is "already redeemed".
You can enter your Redeem Code into the order form only once to redeem those funds. If you are receiving the "already redeemed" message, and you feel that this is not the case, please contact us for further support.
